Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing!! I bought this at the beginning of September and the results have been amazing! I have used it twice a day since then and only recently ran out. I've had to use an older cleanser while I order a replacement of this, and I can really feel the difference that this cleanser made. It makes my skin feel super clean but not dried out. Can't wait for my replacement to arrive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Never tried the old formula... love this one! I read all of these negative reviews about the formula change AFTER buying the cleanser. But I must say, I have nothing previous to compare to, and I really like this product. I have mild acne and since using this facewash, it's all but disappeared (I've also been more careful about keeping up my routine). I enjoy the smell and texture and it works for me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I am a loyal Kiehls customer and normally do not write reviews but I am so, SO frustrated and disappointed with this new cleanser. I honestly don't understand why Kiehls' messes with an amazing product and I really don't understand why they don't value our feedback because if they did they would have read all of these customer comments saying they want the old formula back and they would have brought it back. This new formula is awful and doesn't compare to the old one. I am so frustrated I can't find the old formula anywhere and am left with this down graded product. I do not care that, "the new formula is paraben, oil and sodium laureth sulfate free. It is formulated to help clear acne blemishes, pimples, blackheads and whiteheads, and prevent new ones from forming. It contains salicylic acid to penetrate deep into the pore." It doesn't work. PERIOD. Please listen to us and bring the old formula back or at least offer it as another option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefer this to the old one! I had the old Blue Herbal Gel and wasn't very impressed with it. It was very strong and abrasive whereas this product is smooth and works well on my acne prone skin. I started using it right after it came out and fell completely in love with it as it cleared up my skin. I now use nothing else. This is a great product for people who have very sensitive, acne prone skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver for acne I have never left a review for anything! However, I need to share my review for people that suffer with acne. I am 26yo, have suffered with acne for years. Feb 2018 I was waiting for my second consultation for accutane but fell pregnant. As my pregnancy progressed my acne worsened and was the worst it had ever been. My acne was only round my mouth and chin & below my cheekbones. From the day I started using this face wash, my acne started clearing up (I must also add I have up cows milk that day too, however I have now started drinking that again - lot less than before though - and acne still cleared. If you suffer from acne, PLEASE TRY THIS PRODUCT. I now no longer cry at how disgusting I look and everyone is complimenting my skin. I am left with red marks but no texture and have purchased several products to combat this. This product changed my life!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t compare to previous product I have to echo similar comments regarding this new product vs the prior gel cleanser. This new product doesn’t even leave my face feeling clean and fresh after washing. The gel cleanser was amazing and it was super disappointing to randomly no longer find it anywhere just to be replaced with a completely different product. Please bring back the prior product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old formula!!!! The old Blue Herbal cleanser was effective and easy to use. You could just take shower wash your face and feel good. On the other hand the new reformulated cleanser is a disaster. Doesn't work, it's messy and you have dry your face before using it and doesn't cool your face. Why KIEHLS WHY???? I want my old cleanser back

I have somewhat dry skin , will it work for me ?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, and it will likely make your skin red and feel raw and ripped apart, like it's burning.

I have dry skin and bumps on my forehead, will it clear my forehead even though I habe. Dry skin?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have fairly dry skin and it has cleared my skin up. If I stop using this, my bumps and clogged pores come back, but as soon as I start using this again, it starts to clear up in just a few days!

Is this a replacement for the original Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser? If so, do the older reviews reflect the discontinued Gel Cleanser while the newer reviews reflect this "Cleanser Treatment?"

Asked by: Anonymous
This is a reformulated version, that killed a product that was wildly successful and tremendously effective. It's terrible.
