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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL!!!! Please bring back the old blue herbal gel cleanser !!! This new formulation is TERRIBLE!!! The smell and texture are gross in my opinion. The former blue herbal gel cleanser was my holy grail product that my husband and I had been using for over 7 years. It would effectively remove debris, oil and makeup and kept my face fresh, healthy and clean. I have attempted to find a replacement and tried 7-8 cleansers from Kiehls and other brands and there is nothing that will suffice or is as effective as the old blue herbal gel cleanser. If I knew this was being discontinued I would have purchased all the remaining stock from my local Kiehls store. This item should have a lower rating as the positive reviews in 2016 or older, which are listed here, are for the old formulation; as such, the 3.5 heart rating is inaccurate. I'm actually quite disappointed that I attempted to write multiple reviews (4) and express how this cleanser affected my skin. I kept on getting denied and asked to edit my description of its effects before it was actually posted. I am being honest and I don't think it's appropriate that customers have to edit their truth about a product. Please listen to the majority of the feedback and bring the old blue herbal gel formulation back!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back the blue herbal gel cleanser Before the old formula is forgotten, just want to second the reviews below. I was a big fan of the old blue herbal gel cleanser. Just finished my previous bottle, and could not find it any more. Would you please bring it back to shelf?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought the travel size because I’m pretty particular about my face/acne products. I absolutely love it and will be buying the full size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed with this reformulated cleanser I used this reformulated cleanser after finding out the original Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser has been discontinued. It’s a different consistency, odorless (I prefer the menthol smell), and my face doesn’t seem to feel as clean and fresh as it did with the original Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearly Corrective Exfoliator gave me acne. This stuff cleared it up completely. I feel uncomfortable giving this stuff 5 stars because every review in about the last year is totally negative because they changed the formula. I never tried the old formula. My first ever Kiehls face wash was the Clearly Corrective Exfoliator. It has two stars. It gave me acne. Then I switched to this stuff and it completely cleared my acne on my face, chest and shoulders. This along with the dark spot corrected serum completely fixed my dark wrinky puffy under-eyes too! Thank you! Will buy again. I'm sorry they changed the formula and it looks like I'm the only one the new formula works for haha!

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.
