Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Amazing Cleanser I have been using this cleanser for a few months now. I had a terrible break out from wearing the masks all the time. This cleanser has helped to sooth and clear up my skin. My skin actually looks better than it ever has looked! I love the feel of it too! So happy I found this cleanser! I just wish Kiehls would bring back their Centella Recover Skin Salve. Another amazing product. Unfortunately it has been discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This works! I have struggled with sensitive skin my whole life. This cleanser is wonderful. It removes all traces of makeup AND leaves my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. I’ve said goodbye to red, aggravated skin. I love it! If I could give it a million stars I would. I’m so grateful to Kiehls for offering this amazing line of products for sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! A Cleanser for Dry Sensitive Skin! I have been using this for about a month now, and I am loving it! I have dry sensitive skin, and most of the time, even the mildest cleansers leave my skin dry and feeling tight (looking at you, Cucumber Herbal cleanser!). This cleanser leaves my face feeling dewy and hydrated. This is probably the feeling other reviewers are referring to when they say they aren't sure if this is actually cleaning their face or not. Full disclosure: I don't wear makeup. So that could very well be an issue for people who are relying on a cleanser to clean off makeup. But if you need a gentle cleanser that won't dry you out, try this - I promise you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for sensitive skin I love this cleanser! I’d been searching for one that is super gentle and nourishing, and this gem is perfect. Also great for super dry skin, or skin that’s irritated from skin treatments or the sun. Also, a little goes a long way, so the bottle will last you forever! I have combination skin and it works great. May not be for super oily skin, as it is very moisturizing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is my face really clean? I could be convinced to change this product to a 4 or even 5 if I knew my skin was really getting clean and the makeup removal was better. So years ago they used to have another cleanser that used Centella and was for sensitive skin. They discontinued that cleanser and I have had the darndest time re-creating the combo of products for my skin since. So you can imagine my excitement when this product came out. However, it is VERY different from the old product. I do tend to have dry skin so the moisturizing qualities are great, but it definitely feels more like it is adding something to your face and not really cleaning it. My monthly breakouts have gone down, which is great. But my bigger fear was confirmed the first time I thought I had washed my makeup off. When I went to dry my face all of my foundation and makeup (which I don't use very much of) was on the towel. And this happened several more times. So I worry that my face is not REALLY being cleaned. Perhaps the better use of this product is to wipe it with a cotton pad or a few to remove the dirt and oils and then you are clean? Again, my skin looks great and I don't wear makeup often. But I would love some feedback from Kiehls about the residue and full makeup towels?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for very dry skin I have really been appreciating the cleanser this winter. I have eczema and have combination skin but often get very dry patches in winter, and to mitigate that, per my dermatologist, I had mostly stopped washing my face and body with any kind of soap. I had previously tried using coconut oil scrubs and washes from various other companies and didn't care for it, as my skin came out feeling greasy and itchy; this cleanser is definitely thick but not oily and I don't feel like there is a residue afterward. This is a great product to use on dry areas--I use it on my face, elbows, and other dry patches, and my skin comes out feeling clean and hydrated but not oily. I do rinse lightly afterward, which the instructions say is optional.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ingredients on bottle different The ingredients on the bottle that I received are much fewer than what is listed on the website. Specifically, there are several emollients and oils (cocoa & shea butters, sesamie seed oil) listed on the website that aren't on the bottle. The ingredients list on the Centella cleanser on Sephora's website are the ingredients listed on the bottle I received. Without these emollients, the product felt much less nourishing and more sticky than I was anticipating. Sending this back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AH-MAZING I purchased this for my daughter, who, unfortunately, suffers from acne. She had used it for a month and swears her face cleared up. She was thrilled! I was thrilled! Then she left it in a hotel shower. She called to see if someone had retrieved it. Of COURSE nobody found the expensive (for me, at least, it was expensive) facial cleanser. I refused to buy her another one because she was so careless with the last one. BUT with a nice Kiehl’s promotion, I ordered another one for her for Christmas. She SWEARS by this and because of that, the price is worth it.
