Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gel Cleanser I have been using the Purifying Gel Cleanser for over a year now at night along with the Gentle Cleanser in the morning. With this being a gel cleanser, it is different than the Gentle Cleanser. I like alternating between these two. They seem to last forever this way also. I would recommend either of these cleansers. They both work great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for teens I bought this cleanser for my daughter who is starting to have issues with her skin due to sun exposure and hormones. After only a few days of use, I've noticed her skin is much clearer and smoother. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this face wash. I use it every night and it’s so so gentle and smells like subtle oranges. I got a facial and they used this and recommended it for me because I had clogged pores because my face wash wasn’t cleansing enough. It’s a very very light chemical exfoliator which I love. Makes my skin feel wonderful and the bottle lasts ages. 10/10.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Harsh I accidentally bought this cleanser. I meant to buy the simply clean one and ended up with this. I’m trying to use it since I bought it, but I find it harsh on my skin. It’s a little overkill as a daily face wash. I would not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product! I have used Glycolic products before and like how they work. For the price, this is a very nice product that is as effective as the more expensive products I have used before. It has a smooth feel and no noticeable scent, and of great importance to me, it does not dry my skin. My only complaint is that it is not always available. I presume that is because it is effective and in demand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a lights and amazing moisturizer!!! My skin feels so fresh and clean when I use it. The only downside which doesn’t even bother me is that it burns my eyes. Other than that, amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleanser works well, didn't irritate my skin. The only reason I gave it a 4 star, instead of 5 is because it's pretty pricey. I prefer to spend more money on serums and creams vs cleansers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleanser is worth the hype. I love how it foams and removed all of my make up. My face never felt stripped after or dry
