Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 209.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old formula! This new formula is terrible and does not work. The previous formula actually gave me spot free, clear skin! That was a big deal for me as I suffered from acne for many years. So disappointed and will be switching to a different brand after being a loyal customer for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothed Inflammation So, I never really put to much attention onto cleansers in my skin care routine, because it gets washed off after all. BUT, this cleanser really proved me wrong!! I was breaking out and it was all red and congested and this cleanser really soothed and reduced the redness. It has such a refreshing feeling on the face and is non-drying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Disappointing I tried to love this new cleanser. I used it for a whole year in hopes that my skin would stop breaking out and adjust. After this year I have found that it does not work. It is absolutely nothing like the old formula and it is a shame that Kiehls has not listened to any of its loyal customers to bring back what was once so loved. Like many others who have written reviews to share their frustrations, I too have decided to switch to a completely new brand. Kiehls customer service has been providing the same response to everyone who has shared their concerns and frankly, it seems they just do not care. Kiehls is no longer the best. Read and believe the negative reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bring back the old formula this new version of the cleanser is terrible. i loved the previous version. if any anyone knows of another facial cleanser (non-Kiehls) that they're using to replace this one given Kiehl's ruined it, please let me know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer This face wash has transformed my usually spotty and sometimes cystic skin to an even skin tone with just the odd hormonal blemish. I used to suffer from stress induced hormonal acne, and this stuff not only got rid of the deep rooted blemish but helped get rid of the dark scarring. It has blown any other face cleanser out the water for me and minimised/kept any recurring spots at bay. Defo worth the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this! been having occasional acne breakouts and overall bumpy texture- this cleanser really helped with keeping them all at bay! Love this! There seemed to be another design with this that was more liquid form but I got this new bottle and it still works great. Love the minty and cooling feeling I get after using this cleanser because it is refreshing and makes my face feel so clean! Love this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gentle face wash I've been using this face wash for about 10 years now. I have normal skin but it is sensitive and can get dried out or oily with the wrong product. This product keeps my skin even and breakout free. When the packaging and consistency changed a few years back I was nervous but I haven't noticed a difference in my skin at all and the new version actually lasts much longer since the product is thicker/more concentrated now. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Cleanser I have been using this for almost a month now and I am so excited to see my skin change! I have always had acne and have spent hundreds of dollars on products to help me. This cleanser has done wonders, my skin is clear and feels so smooth! A little goes a long way and I can see this lasting over 6 months, which for $22 is outstanding. Some have commented on the smell, I don't mind it at all.

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.

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!
