Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing product, HORRIBLE packaging I love this facial cleanser but the packaging is awful. I lost at least 1/3 of the product due to it leaking everywhere, which is a bummer, because it works really well. I have oily skin and it gets it squeaky clean without irritating it. Please, please, please fix the packaging so I feel good about ordering it again. Maybe a pump?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Cap Needed to Be Redesigned I love this product because it won't make my skin too dry after washing. But the cap design needed to be improved. It leaked a few times even I am sure I closed it firmly. 1/3 bottle of the product was just wasted because of the leakage. Just checked out the other reviews, I'm not the only one who experiences the leakage. Kiehl's needs to fix this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the cleanser but not the packaging This is one of the very few foaming cleansers that don't dry out my disgustingly oily, not particularly sensitive 40-something year old skin. It's the ONLY one I've found that is also unscented. While I have zero complaints about the actual product, I am unhappy with the tube packaging. I have to race to catch the cleanser before it spills all over the cap and while it's certainly not difficult to store the tube tapered end down, I find it annoying to do so. I really wish this came in a refillable sealed pump bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my combo skin Love this cleanser! No dry feeling after use. Mild cleanser on my mostly oily 60’s year old skin. A coffee bean size quantity goes a long way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleanser good; packaging bad I like this cleanser because it does a good job cleansing without drying. I wish, though, that it would come in a pump (or better yet, sell a pump version and then sell refills for the pump). The screw on top is messy and because you have to store it upside down it leaks a lot, meaning you lose product. This was the first time I bought this. I'm on the fence about buying again simply because of the packaging. Otherwise, good cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clears acne away like magic! I'm a 56 year old woman who STILL struggles with occasional bouts of acne breakouts....as if I were going through puberty again! I've tried E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. on the planet to combat this problem, but a few years ago, a friend turned me on to Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser and gave me a small bottle to try. I couldn't believe the difference within just a few days! My face started to clear up and no new acne appeared! Now, I'm an avid user of the product and tell all my friends about the Keihls line of great products! A big bottle of this stuff would make a TERRIFIC stocking stuffer for that one person who still struggles with acne....at ANY age! Even my kids are using this! Clear skin really IS possible again.....and the golden ticket is inside this bottle of Keihls Ultra Facial Cleanser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Sensitive and Oily Skin I love this cleanser. I have sensitive skin that leans more towards the oily side and this cleanser always leaves my face feeling fresh and supple. I've tried so many different cleansers from many different brands but I always come back to this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of best I’ve been using this since 2013 and this is by far the best cleanser that I know. I’ve tried other products but none of them exceed my standard once I know how well the kiehls cleanser works. I love this because 1) it does remove makeup 2) it does not irritate eyes 3) your skin feels so clean and refreshed 4) you only need a tiny bit of drop 5) it just doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Stop wasting money on other products. This does the jobs that’s supposed to do!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cleanser... wish Kiehl's sold a larger bottle I have been used this cleanser for over a year and it works really well. It gives me a deep clean feel without over drying my skin. I have used other Kiehl's cleansers such as facial fuel, oil eliminator, and calendula foaming wash and this one is my favorite. I have normal skin with some oily days here and there, and this cleanser works on my normal and oily days! The only thing I wish Kiehl's did, was sell this in a larger pump bottle like the facial fuel in a one liter bottle, I would totally buy it and I feel that a lot of people would too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not really what I wanted I was out of my usual cleanser. I needed to get a replacement but I needed to cut costs, so I looked for an alternative to my favs and I choose this cleanser. I don't have problem skin at all. Most ppl would hate me because I have no acne, dry skin, oily skin, not even t-zone areas, so face wash for me is more of an experience. Smell is a huge thing. This cleansers smells like nothing. I look for natural, gently cleansers that give me a spa feeling. The cleanser cleans, so that is why I gave it a 4 and I would recommend it to ppl with sensitive skin but I wont buy it again for me. A little goes a long way so you do get your monies worth. The consistency is weird. I think you need very little and work it in your hands well first then onto your face. Otherwise, its doesn't spread evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST. CLEANSER. EVER. I’ve used this for YEARS. Cleans all the icky off from the day, sweat, dirt, sunscreen, makeup... doesn’t even burn your eyes!! I wish they had wipes, I’d keep them in my truck!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Go Without It This is the only facial cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin. I can't see myself using a different cleanser ever again. I pair this with the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer and haven't had any dry patches on my face since.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, poor packaging I truly loved this product. After having babies, it was really hard to find a product that was able to remove make up and was a neutral (non-irritating) pH. Many other supposed neutral washes-like cerave or ceraphil- failed to remove makeup and left me breaking out. However, this product had one major flaw and that was the packaging. It leaked, constantly. I ultimately lost over half of the product. I tried to just leave it laying sideways. But my husband, who is a neat freak, constantly set it up. And the product seeped our the cap :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing product - poor packaging Went into the Kiehl’s store for the first time and the ultra facial cleanser was recommended for a twice a day (morning and night) face wash. This product has worked wonders and has completely cleared up my mild adult acne and dry skin. As I was almost done with the product, I noticed that the packaging starting leaking, to the point where I lost a lot of product. I then read on other reviews that the same happened to their bottle. I highly recommend changing the packaging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Container is not recyclable I like the product, but will not buy anymore until the container is changed to one that is recyclable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have combination skin and I am very prone to breakouts. I love this product because it doesn't over dry my skin but doesn't leave my skin oily after washing either. The texture was a little weird at first because it feels kind of sticky, but the product itself works great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to like it... I love Kiehl's products, but this one just didn't do it for me. It cleans well but leaves my skin dry, even though I use facial moisturizer after cleaning. I miss the old gentle, foaming cleanser..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do you love the smell of Elmer’s glue? I wanted to love this face wash, and while it may be effective at washing away makeup and dirt it truly smells and feels like Elmer’s glue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this facial cleanser. I've been using it over a year now and it's perfect. I get compliments on my skin and all I use is this and the Utra Facial Cream. Would have given 5 stars however I am annoyed that when I order it online there isn't always a foil seal on the bottles?! What gives? Sometimes there is one but most of the time there isnt. Unfortunately there are no Kiehls stores near where I live so I get it delivered. It makes me think they send me some bottles someone has returned in store and that's why theres no foil seal there... I'm just scared I wouldnt know if it was tampered with, you never know, ya know? Please Kiehls PLEASE make sure delivered items have proper seal because I don't trust anything without a seal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this face wash BUT I have been using this for years, they recently changed their packaging and I lost half my face wash due to leakage! Please bring back the old tube!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to look past packaging flaw!!! I’ve always loved this cleanser — always left my face feeling really clean but never dried it out as other cleansers I’ve tried before. The packaging had never been a problem. My last purchase, however, had a wider tube opening which ended up leaking half of the product. I’ve resorted to storing the tube upside down to avoid further leaking and to use up whatever little was left of the cleanser. I love this cleanser itself but will not be purchasing again until the tube design is updated!! Ultimately not worth spending money for a faulty product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaked all over my counter This is a really good product however the top leaked so much that there was a pool of it on my counter and most of product was wasted. I began storing it cap-side up but what was left in the tube waste extremely viscous. Kiel’s has great product so but the packaging on this one is literally a mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cleanser if fabulous! I took a chance on this cleanser and I'm so glad. A small amount is all you need to remove make-up. My face in NOT dry after use. Very happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good cleanser but terrible packaging!! This cleanser is great and does wonders for my skin. However, the packaging is AWFUL. After a few weeks it starts to leak out of the tube, and all into the lid and all over my sink/counter. This wastes so much product and creates such a mess. This has happened both times I have purchased the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaves Skin Dry I have used this cleanser for two weeks and unfortunately it leaves my skin extremely dry and tight. I had high hopes for this product based on the excellent reviews but it’s not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this facial cleanser I’ve tried lots of facial cleansers out there. I come back to this not only because it works great, but I love the smell ! It reminds me of diving in a swimming pool. That clean smell. Love this stuff !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it has parabens As much as I wanted to use the product continuously, I read the whole ingredients of it which contain parabens. I hope these ingredients should be removed from its ingredients.. I was really disappointed

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New dispenser PLEASE I love this product and love Kiehl's but the packaging is very faulty. It leaks everywhere, I even tried to put it in the shower but to no avail after each use 1/4 of the contents leaks out. Please make it into a pump and if that is not possible have it sit on upright position. After buying the second one and having the same experience, I have resorted to find a new brand for my everyday cleaner. And my issue is not even cost related to wasted product, but just that I can't handle messy bathroom.
