Rated 5 out of 5 by from Facial Cleanser This facial cleanser is amazing! I wish I had found this face wash sooner, but so happy to have it now! It doesn't disappoint and I feel like my face was cleaner after the first wash with this product. I've noticed my face has felt amazing all day, black heads on nose going away and I use it with my Clarisonic face brush. I look forward to purchasing this in the future when I finish the bottle and it is in my opinion, a very reasonable price compared to other skin care lines. Hope this helps and you buy one of your own bottles of this magic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gentle face wash You only need a very small amount of this face wash to lather up. It’s gentle, hasn’t made my skin break out and is non drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the way it cleans. It cleans off all make up with ease using only a tiny amount leaving the skin feeling clean but hydrated. My new fave so move aside Calendula facial foaming wash. It also washes my daughters very dry skin gently too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Cleanser! A fantastic product! I have used this product for a number of years and every now and then I have the crazy idea of trying out a new cleanser, a latest fad, which is being raved about and yet when I do, I always return to this brilliant facial cleanser. This product cleans the face without drying and is light yet effective. What a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Stellar This product is, hand's down, the best cleanser I have ever used. I can use it in the morning to wake up, as it is gentle and cooling on puffy skin, and I can use it at night as a makeup removing, pore renewing, general face wash. I have combination skin, it's generally very dry, but my nose gets extremely oily throughout the day; this cleanser nourishes the dry spots but washes the oil right out of my pores. Many people say there is a soapy residue after using this product but I have to disagree for my skin personally. The jelly texture does tend to get stuck in my eyebrows but is easily washed away with a warm cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Moly, This Is A Great Facial Wash I can't even begin to say how much I love this facial cleanser. It didn't leave my face too dry, but felt clean yet moisturized. I love, love, love this product. I would totally recommend to other people to buy it.
Date published: 2019-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin has never looked so good! I bought this along with the a few other Kiehl products and wow! I've not been as confident as I have now. I am so impressed with my skin at the moment. It's been all sorts of different weather recently and it's been helping my skin to keep at bay. I have combination/oily and dry skin and that can come and go. With a brilliant skincare routine that I have now, I won't be going back. Kiehl's is here to stay. The only downfall is the price BUT I can honestly say it's worth every penny to feel and look confident within yourself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really wanted to love but I bought this product hoping to fall in love especially with all the positive reviews. Sadly I just don't get a clean or fresh feeling when I use it and now have spots under the skin. Considering the price I won't be using again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EFFECTIVE CLEANSER As a person with sensitive skin, I am always scared of trying out new products. I gave this cleanser a try since it was very popular and wanted to know why it is hyped so much. I am thankful that I gave this cleanser a chance! I love the formulation so much. I can for sure say that it is very gentle and does not strip the skin. It lathers up very well and my skin does NOT feel dry AT ALL after washing my face. The squalane (emollient) and the avocado oil in this cleanser is a bonus - gives you a boost of hydration during the cleansing step!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser for ALL Skin Types I’ve been using this cleanser for years and absolutely LOVE it. Recently my teenage son ran out of his cleanser made for oily skin. I let him borrow my Ultra Facial Cleanser until I was able to get to the mall to buy his brand. After 1 use he was hooked!! This cleanser actually balanced his skin better and his skin was even less oily than when he used a product specifically made for oily skin. I would HIGHLY recommend this product for all skin types.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fresh A fabulous face wash product, I have super sensitive skin and this makes my skin feel so great, no tightness like some products can cause, just a great feeling and you can just feel how clean your face is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin feels amazing !! I received a few samples with a purchase at the airport and I am AMAZED with how good my skin feels after 2 days of using this product. My skin is quite dry and after washing my face with this I can feel such a difference & its only been a few days. I will definitely be purchasing when I've finished these samples- I've found that you don't need much product therefore price is totally fitting ! Kiehls will now be my No1, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin! I've been using this cleanser for 3 years now and if I try anything else, it breaks me out and my skin turns to rubbish. I've tried the kiehl's gentle cleanser and that did not do the job like this does. It removed everything, my skin feels soft yet clean and never get any reactions to it. Absolutely brilliant! Hooked for life. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Traveler Cleanser My normal is the calendula deep cleansing wash, but the travel size is horrendous for busting at high altitudes (messed up TWO travel bottles). But the travel size for the Ultra is a MUST. Have already taken this on three trips since December and would recommend the travel size to anyone. For my normal routine I still use the calendula (it cleans the best), but still love this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INCREDIBLE FACE WASH This face wash is so great, for ALL skins! My skin is spot prone, red cheeks, dry in areas, very sensitive, hormonal spots etc. It's very hard to find a nice gentle face wash that gives my face a good clean without stripping it or clogging my pores - THIS does just that. It is a thick gel that only takes literally a pea size amount to foam up in wet hands and use all over the face so the bottle lasts a very long time. This is a good face wash for someone with confused skin (like me) who needs a good, reliable face wash suitable for use twice a day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love but... This cleanser does the job it’s supposed to do. Cleanse your skin. It doesn’t leave your skin as dry as some of the other cleansers do. I wanted to love this cleanser but after I read the ingredients, I saw that it contains SLS which is just a turn off for me. I would not buy this cleanser again because of that. I hope Kiehl’s will get rid off nasty SLS soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent cleanser I am on my second full size tube, I love this cleanser. I have oily skin, this removes oil and does not dry my skin out.
Date published: 2019-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only cleanser for me As a Korean woman, my skin care regimen is something that I pay a lot of attention to. I have tried many different cleansers, including ones from Origins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, L'occitane, and various Korean brands, and nothing compares to this one. It doesn't irritate my skin or overly dry it out. AND it takes off my makeup better than any other cleanser on nights when you just don't want to get out the makeup remover. I can't see myself ever using anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Should've Stopped Using This!! I got this about two years ago as a gift and loved it- the texture is very different (thicker) from other cleansers I've used, but it seemed to suck the gunk out of my pores super well without harsh exfoliants. I stopped using it after experiencing some hormonal changes in my skin, and have been dealing with some cystic acne around my jaw and clogged pores for a few months now. I decided to repurchase this just to give it a go and WOW. Literally after one use my skin looks cleaner and feels softer than it has in ages. In addition to acne I tend to have sort of combination, verging on oily skin with large pores, and this vacuums them right out and leaves my skin feeling great, never tight or weird. I can't wait to keep using it, it's a complete joy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Face Wash that Actually Works! I love the other Kiehls products that I have, but I had my doubts about this one. When I think of a 'facial cleanser' I just think of something simple that makes your face cleaner than it was and doesn't overdry in the process. But WOW- this blew my mind!!! I've been getting more acne on my face lately after about a year of really good skin...and nothing was working. I've used this for a week and I already see a huge difference...the acne is going away, the extra oil my skin has is soaked up, and my skin feels softer than it did before. It's a pretty good value too. I definitely recommend this cleanser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy What a fantastic cleanser. A little does a huge amount! It is going to last me such a long time. It takes off all my make up and makes my skin feel so so clean. Just perfect

Date published: 2018-11-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not how it seems Very disappointed as I had come into Kiehl’s explaining I had a bad experience with another cleanser so wanted something that was gentle and for dry skin. This has made me have dry patches as well as tiny little spots probably a reaction.
Date published: 2018-11-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new go-to cleanser! Wish it came in bigger size! I LOVE this cleanser! I have sensitive skin so this helps me get nice, clean skin without all the fragrance or stripped feeling. I use this everyday, morning and night along with the clay cleanser when I need a deeper clean. Would highly recommend this. My only knock on this product is that it only comes in 2 sizes. Please make it in the Liter Pump size like the Men's cleanser!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cleanser for part of your face This product is good if you are careful to avoid your eyes - it stings & makes them alittle watery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works well. It is affordable and works well. It makes my skin smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so great!! i love this cleanser so much. i never thought to get it because i had so many other masks and stuff from kiehl's that this one seemed insignificant. but omg... it's so great. it's very light, and did not give me any reactions whatsoever (which is so rare when you're trying a new cleanser). it also doesn't dry out your skin completely when you've washed your face. the value of this product is definitely the best out of anything at kiehl's. you'll use this everyday, only need to use a bit, and it will last you awhile. highly recommend.

which cleanser is the most gentle? the calendula one or the ultra facial cleanser?

Asked by: Anonymous
For me the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash is more gentle, i have very sensitive facial skin and my eczema would flare up time to time. The Ultra Facial Cleanser make my face stings a little and would redden some areas after washing and would hurt the eczema area when its flaring up, but Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash does not sting or hurt me at all. Toner of the same family is gentle too.
