Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Face Wash I’m so confused with all of these bad reviews. I’ve always been the person to switch up my cleansers but I just keep buying this. I love the texture, a dime size goes along way, and the smell is amazing. My face always feel smooth and tightened after using. I love love love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect texture for sensitive skin The beads are teeny tiny and don’t break blood vessels. My skin is smooth and ready to accept the test of my Kiehls’s routine. I use it only at night. I love this stuff. I’m 62 yo and my skin glows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I got a sample in store around 6 months ago with another purchase and only tried it recently - so glad i did! I have been struggling to get something for a long time that would help my adult break out skin and enlarged pores. This did exactly that, no more breakouts on my chin and a significant reduction in my pores on my nose and chin. I also have sensitive skin that can be on the dry side and this is a really delicate product that can be used twice a day. Best cleanser I have tried and I have tried many - both expensive and cheaper products. I bought the full size 4 weeks ago and now use it everyday, a little goes a long way so I find the tube very reasonable for the cost. This will be a product staple for me going forward.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible for sensitive skin I brought this about 2 months ago and at first I loved it, helped keep my skin clearer and brighter however after daily use of about 4 weeks it's left red blotchy areas on my more sensitive skin (cheeks and chin) the are extremely dry. My skin has never been particularly sensitive but I'm guessing that's the problem, this product is quite harsh.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't stand the new formula I loved the old cleanser. It was perfect -- I recommended it to my friends, and I had purchased it for my mom last year for Mother's Day. I don't know why you changed the formula so much. It's no longer a white cream (which gently softened with water) but a grey sticky gel. Pretty gross, actually. It feels like you're putting peanut butter on your face. It also dries out the skin. I would never recommend using this product twice a day. Now I am only using it once every two to three days, and only at night so I can put a nice dose of moisturizer on afterwards. I would return it if I could.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula! I had used the previous cream cleanser for 2 years and it had worked wonders on my acne and hyperpigmentation. I am so disappointed Kiehl’s has added an unnecessary exfoliating physical scrub to this product. I will have to bin and finds something else

Should you use this to exfoliate every day?

I love this product, but I hear that it is not good to exfoliate every day. I feel like this is a very gentle exfoliating face wash and did not leave my skin feeling raw but should you exfoliate using this every day if you were to use this twice a day? Or is it better to use this 2-3 times a week rather than 2x per day?
Asked by: Annabell
Hi there! Thank you for your interest in our Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser. This product is can be used morning and night. We hope you found this information helpful!

Does this product contain micro-plastics?

I am concerned about plastic pollution and am trying to avoid using products that contain plastic microbeads. I know this product contains natural exfoliants, but can someone confirm whether or not it contains plastic microbeads?
Asked by: KathrynC
Yes - ACRYLATES COPOLYMER - is a micro-bead plastic used for abrasion.

Are you going to go back to the old formula?

I was about to order more face wash but I see you changed it and the reviews are horrible. I have sensitive skin and even within the Kiehls line have issues. I hope you will be changing back.
Asked by: cgreen

Is this safe to use to wash around eye area?

Asked by: EliDominguez
Hi there, thanks for your inquiry! We do not suggest using the Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser around your eye area as it has not been tested for the sensitive eye area. You would apply a small amount of facial cleanser to clean fingertips and gently massage onto face using upward, circular motions. We hope this helps and that you can use our products with great results!
