I use this product every morning, and I love it. It is not too harsh and does not dry out your skin. Leaves your skin feeling clean and smooth. —GreggR, kiehls.com
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for pre-teen My 12 year old daughter has been struggling with acne since she was 9- yes 9! It runs in the family. We’ve tried a lot, even prescription creams. This has really helped her. It’s not too drying like a lot of products but evens out her skin tone in addition to reducing breakouts. Her skin just looks calmer. She also uses the oil free moisturizer and does take a rx antibiotic for acne. This combo has really helped her. I wish it were cheaper - but it’s less than a dermatologist visit! I also use it weekly and it works for me too (I have very dry/combo skin and only use it on my nose and chin). My daughter also uses it on her chest and shoulders- would be great if it came in a larger tube or jar too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breakouts I like the texture of it, it is smooth and I feel good when it is on my face, yet my after experience is not the same: this product causes breakouts after every usage and I have to wait for weeks to get rid of them completely. I cannot say that I have a problem with Kiehl's products generally because the Ultra facial moisturizer, and midnight recovery products are really great on me, but I am very disappointed on Rare Earth Deep Pore serie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I suffer from cyctic acne especially around my period. Since starting my kiehls regimen I maybe get one cycstic acne and a couple normal pimples. otherwise this cleanser really does the job and keeps my face flawless!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Mix Chix! My skin in normal to oily - depending on my environment. Im from Northern California but recently moved to the desert and my skin became dry, enlarged pores, and acne prone. I was desperate for something effective and fast! This cleanser was a dream come true along with the Ultra Hydrator, I'm completely in LOOOVVEEE. They have a new loyal customer <3 I HIGHLY recommend to any African American/ mixed !!! Their products will not dry you out and you can wear it under your makeup and it wont cause your face to be OVER oily ;) Thank you KIEHLS!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was too rough to be a Daily Cleanser This product is only great when used a couple times a week. It made my skin very dry and sometimes peel. It's nice if used as a first cleanse and rub it very gently on your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing! I have dry skin, but tend to get a little oily in my t-zone. I've never been one to get "fancy" face care products until a friend gave me a few samples of Kiehl's to try and I'M HOOKED. This cleanser is hands-down the most effective cleanser I've ever used. I could tell a huge difference in my skin after just a few uses. I really only get breakouts during that time of the month and it not only cut down on hormonal breakouts but it also makes my skin look brighter and on point for days that I don't want to wear makeup. I bought the large bottle before my sample ran out, and now I've been using this cleanser nightly for 2 months straight. I'll never give it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the texture Love the texture of this face wash. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin. It has not irritated my face or caused it to dry out. It keeps my face fresh, acne free,and feeling great about my skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Exfoliating Cleanser I have combination skin that's sensitive and can dry out easily. I've used several exfoliating washes, from Alba Botanica to even making my own with baking soda. They either dried my face out or didn't deep clean well enough. Since using this, my face is smoother, rarely has the occasional small breakout I used to get, pores are smaller, and a white head that I had for about a month on my under eye area, which I tried to get rid of, finally went away with just a few times of cleansing it with this. I received a sample and went back a few days later to purchase it. A pea sized amount is all you need. For reference I use this with the Ultra Facial Cleanser in my routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A total game changer in my skincare routine! I love Kiehl's products and use many of them--day and night. I began using this cleanser based on the suggestion of a Kiehl's associate and I am SO glad I did. The gentle exfoliation is just the right amount and leaves my skin squeaky clean without feeling stripped. This cleanser, in combination with the matching toner, controls my oil during the day. My skin has never looked better! Try it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Cleanser I received this as a sample at first and decided to try it out because I was intrigued by the clay in the product. I loved it after the first use. It left my skin feeling squeaky clean and I've noticed less acne since I started using this. I wash my face with this at least once a day and I recently purchased the full size product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too rough I have been using this every evening for a couple of weeks but am noticing small areas on my cheeks that look like little tears in the skin. I've now been reading how you have to be careful with scrubs on delicate facial tissue. I might use once a week on T zone as I think it does clear out my pores but I'm going back to murads more gentle exfoliating cleansers for every day use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Cleanser When I read the reviews of this product and had such a phenomenal experience with the Midnight Recovery Oil, I was ready to be amazed. What I really like about this product is that it is a clay cleanser which actually foams! I think it's really neat and unique in that regard. And as a cleanser, it does work well and doesn't strip my skin of it's natural oils and after using it, I felt refreshed. However, that's where it stops. I don't think it really did anything for my pores or detoxified my skin. My skin looked pretty normal and continued to look normal. I don't think it enhanced my skin or made it any more lovely or fine in texture. So if you want a product that's a good cleanser, this is it. But if you want the wow! effect (i.e. Midnight Recovery Oil status), I think there are other cleansers out on the market that are 1/3 of the price and work just as well if not better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective This cleanser made a noticeable difference in how healthy my skin looked. It left my skin looking clearer and my blackheads seemed diminished. If you wish you could get some of the benefits of Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask everyday without having to add 15 minutes to your routine, the cleanser is a great shortcut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this scrub! This is my favorite product!!! I'm 22 years old with normal-dry skin, and I frequently get some dryness around the nose. This scrub helps me feel super clean and fresh. I keep it in the shower! The grains are fine enough that you could use it everyday, but I use it only a few times a week. I switch off with the Ultra Facial Cleanser, which I use when I'm wearing makeup. I use the Rare Earth Cleanser when my face is already makeup-free (like in the mornings or days I don't wear make-up) so I can get a better scrub and it helps balance the cleansing power of the Ultra Facial. They say you can use this for makeup, too, but with the texture, it doesn't cover my face as well as the slightly gooey Ultra Facial. I use a fair amount (more than a pea size) so I can get enough all over my face, but I definitely don't use any around the eye area because of the small grains. My face feels a little more dry than it does when I use the Ultra Facial cleanser, but that just means my skin is super clean so I make sure to moisturize well afterwards with Kiehls! The value is amazing, as always, and I love that this has true earth ingredients. The bottle is big enough that it has lasted me 2-3 years! I'm almost out and I'm going to bring it to the store to recycle. For every 10 products you recycle, I think you get some kind of reward :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squeaky Clean I love freshly exfoliated skin but my sensitive skin won't tolerate scrubs more than once a week. This has just enough 'scrub' to do the job each day yet gently. I love this facial cleanser and use it each morning. I notice a big difference on how my makeup goes, and stays, on. It helps to control blackheads and breakouts too. I don't think I have had breakouts since I started using this product. I use everything Kiehl's and this is one of my all time favorite products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Go-To I live in a tropical humid climate & have oily, acne prone skin in the T-zone area which makes me so self-conscious. After feeling like I've tried just about everything with no results I looked to Kiehl's brand for help. I looked closely to the reviews & this cleanser seemed perfect for my oily skin. I use this cleaner along with the rare earth toner, moisturizer & Avocado eye cream. After a few weeks of use I have already noticed an improvement to my skin. Yes, I still get oily, but it seems to be helping my acne & smooth those annoying little bumps on my forhead & chin. I also don't get as oily as i used to. I'm not one to write comments but for this product I felt like I needed to! It's made me feel so much better about my skin & i'm hoping it will continue to give positive result. Definitely worth a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for rough and bumpy skin I have cavernous pores that can be seen from space. I have tried every k-beauty product under the sun (and others) to try and keep my pores clean. Yet, I always found my pores to be so clogged that my skin becomes bumpy and rough. I've been using this cleanser for about a month now, and the difference in my skin is quite dramatic, even from the first use. I can't feel the tiny particles that smooth my skin as I wash, but I can feel the difference afterwards. I use this morning and night. Not stripping, my skin NEVER felt tight or dry after. I like to follow up with the ultra moisturizing cream, and this routine has helped my skin improve a lot. I feel fancy touching my face, and feeling how smooth and soft it is. Really great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed! This is my second one because The first one was really good. But, this time, I'm totally disappointed, it's too watery, I dont feel my skin clean as before. It's not worth $22.50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed with this Best face wash I have found in a while my skin feels amazing after each use. I don't use it everyday and don't find the need to every other day and my face is great. My pores look great and I find my skin is way less oily. I also go back and forth with having very day skin and find this product does not over dry my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I have very oily skin with large pores but have also developed sensitivities to harsh oil control products. I have had a hard time finding a cleanser that helps keep my oil at bay and doesn't burn my skin. I am so glad I found this product, it is everything I have been looking for in a cleanser. My skin looks so much clearer and the oiliness and texture have improved so much. I'm also using the lotion and primer from this collection and it is a match made in skin heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic after a camping trip I don't use this as a daily cleanser. I use it once a week & when I've gotten really grubby, like after a camping trip or doing cleanup after a major storm. I have sensitive skin & don't like gritty scrubs. This does an excellent job!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great at removing antiperspirant deodorant residue I actually found this product too abrasive for my skin, which is rather odd. I found my skin scarred, and so then added the Ultra Facial Oil Free lotion to compensate for the abrasiveness of the product. But still continued to find my skin scarring. I figured since this cleanser was so abrasive, perhaps it would work as a body scrub. And oddly it works like a miracle for removing that awful film/residue antiperspirant leaves in your underarms. I use a soft bristled body brush and put a globule of the scrub on it and scrub my underarms and they go back to being smooth. It doesn't particularly have a scent, so I finish my shower with the grapefruit body wash and this combination works well and leaves me with really refreshed skin. So if you find the facial scrub to be too much for your facial skin just try it on another body part. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO glad I gave this a try!! I bought this on a whim, I've been using the Ultra Cleanser and love it. I've always struggled with large pores on my nose that are noticeable and filled with little black dots. Nothing would help and things that would like bioré strips are way too harsh for my skin. BUT this works wonders! Like seriously instant change, I used the cleanser and the mask the day I got it and the change in my pores was amazing. Mimimized them and actually got rid of the blackheads. I've used it for almost a week now and have had no issues with it drying my skin out. Beyond happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product! This is the Kiehls face wash for me!! I have large pores and in turn, large under-the-skin acne in certain areas. This has cleared up my skin completely in just a couple weeks. It dries your skin just the right amount to clear acne, and using the deep pore face lotion with it is a great combination. I've tried a few different Kiehls face washes and this is by far the best for me! First time writing a review for anything I've ever purchased so it MUST be good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Texture! This cleanser is fun. I always get excited when I use it just because the texture is different than normal cleansers. You'll also notice you don't need very much once mixed with a little water. I immediately noticed my pores diminish with continued use. Tip: Don't use this with a Clarisonic. I feel like it clogs the device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I have clear skin, but unfortunately, I am "blessed" with very large pores. I've used all of the cheaper drug store brands with no success. This cleanser really detoxifies the skin and has considerably helped the appearance of my pores. I didn't see much difference the 1st week, but I kept with it. So glad I did! Definitely worth the price and I will be ordering again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less pores! I've changed to this wash from Ultra line last week and my pores are already less visible!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Cleanser This is one of my favorite cleansers i have ever used! I recommended it to my best friend, and she fell in love with it, too! I noticed a difference in my skin after the first wash. The texture feels nice, and although a generous amount is needed, it has lasted me almost 3 months. I wish i took before and after pictures of my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever I've long suffered with mild/moderate adult acne due to my skin being overly sensitive. This cleanser has changed my life! I use this everyday when I wash my face in the shower and it has been one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's gentle on my skin yet powerful enough to keep flare-ups at bay. The texture is great and I don't have to use much (about a dime size) to mix with water and it covers my entire face. Great cleansing staple to own!
