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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back the old cleanser..... I don't understand why you would change something that worked so well. The old cleanser was amazing! This new one is okay but it doesn't give you that instant tingling feeling like the old one did. I know I am not alone on this. I have spoke with multiple Kiehls fans who want the old product back. Please Kiehls, consider bringing back the old formula that is loved by many!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just unbelievable After 48 hrs in the desert this weekend for Coachella, my skin was ravaged from the sun, dry air and wind. I always liked Kiehls products, but only used lotions and lip balm.So I bought the Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser for my oily skin in Palm Springs. In just 3 days, skin is remarkably improved, fully restored from my crazy weekend. The Frankencense in this product reduces sebum production which is a new concept to me, and my skin. I just love this. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I have struggled with acne for YEARS and have tried literally every product you could imagine, none had been successful. This cleanser has been life changing!! My acne has almost completely vanished, aside from a very occasional hormonal breakout, and my skin has never looked so good. Such a relief to have finally found something that works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant for spot prone skin I’ve always been spotty due to my hormones. This wash is the dogs bits when it comes to cleansing spot prone skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Purchaser and Sold! I have been struggling with adult acne for the last 2 years and have been using in conjunction with the acne control lotion (twice daily) and my skin is clearer than it has been in months! I have been troubled with cystic acne and as soon as one blemish clears up another one shows up consistently to the point for constant blemishes and painful for months BUT this product seems to be doing the trick for me in just one week! So happy to finally find something that works, Also find the product extremely affordable given the amount used, I believe this bottle will last at least 10 months, all you need is a pea size and it lathers very well! Disclaimer* I have never used the old formula but have been using prescription based acne medications for the last year and am seeing better results with Kiehls.

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!
