Cleanser for days
I have to say this is the best cleanser I have tried. It really does its job. I have comb-oliy skin and this doesn't make my face dry and stiff. Which I have had a lot of cleansers do. It makes my skin soft and helps stop my break outs. This is step 1 of the 3 step process and they really all go hand in hand. All you need is a full pump in your hand to do the job. For the price and size you cant do wrong. I love that the cap also turns to open and close. Thats perfect for travel!
TIP: If you are traveling make sure to pack this in something that wont get banged up and hit a lot. My cap broke and it was all over my bag. :(... putting it in a plastic bag will help also.
BEST cleanser ever!
I LOVE THIS!! I have used Clinique's 3-Step since I was 15. I have always had a love / hate relationship with the bar of facial soap - half way through it smelled gross. it looked gross. it was, in fact, gross.
This cleanser will not strip your skin, where it feels tight, but cleanse it thoroughly. I use it with my Clairsonic. I have used both the Mild and the Oily version. I love them equally. The non-drying formula rinses off cleanly.
Use a full pump and follow with your Clarifying lotion and DDML/G. My skin felt normal for the first time after this product came out, it wasn't on the yo-yo on too oily or too stripped. It was just right!
I only use this cleanser, so I highly recommend it. The vessel is super easy to use, it dispenses the right amount of product, you can see if you are running low for replacement and the top locks shut for traveling.
Remember, this is a facial cleanser, not a makeup remover. If you wear heavy foundation, choose a makeup remover first and follow it with this product. One removes makeup, one cleans the skin.
*TIP: apply this to dry skin (avoid eye area) the product will break down dirt super fast then add water to create an emollient and the soap bubbles will lift dirt and debris away.
Great Makeup Remover
Okay, not really meant to remove makeup but I was impressed. I got foundation matched at Clinque and got one of these as a sample. After a while the makeup started to bother me (probably something on the brush used to apply it) and I decided to wash off some of it with the sample soap in the store bathroom. I was impressed. My foundation melted away and left my skin clean. Later on I cleaned my skin again with my Clarisonic and not a trace of orange was left on my brush. I will definitely buy a full size when I need more face wash.
Classic packaging, and really great product.
I will start by saying that if the price turns you off to this product, then I would highly recommend trying the Cetaphil line. I used Cetaphil religiously for a year before this product, and switched after learning that this brand is formulated for sensitive skin with an array of skin concerns. No fragrance, no colors, and great range of products. My skin changes with the weather, so I alternate between the oily formula and the mild formula. It keeps my skin clean and clear, doesn't irritate or dry out my skin, and it washes clean with no residue.
I really enjoyed this product. I have super sensitive skin, so I was hoping this would calm some of the irritation going on. It definitely did! It left my skin hydrated and clear and really soft. The only reason I docked one star from my review is that it didn't give me that glowiness after I wash my face. I love that super clean, fresh, dewy feeling after I wash my face, and after using it, my face just felt a little... blah. But I do recommend this product! :) xx
Although i don't have brand loyalty when it comes to beauty products, I must say this facial soap really works well on my skin right after working out. i use this to cleanse my face everyday during hardcore exercise and I love it to bits.
it's gentle and nice investment for skin care!
So I would suffer from hormonal acne and at first this product made my blemishes more visible, but after a week of using this product my texture of skin changed and the cosmetologist told me this product brings all the bacteria to the surface and then you shouldn't break out anymore. I'll give it one more week to see if it actually works on my skin.
This cleanser is not that good or that bad. It's just average.
It doesn't strip my skin or make it dry (by the way, I'm combination oily) or make it even more oily. But it doesn't do the cleansing that well too..
Good thing about this product is it's cheap and it's lasts for months and the package will make u want to purchase this product. It shouts like "Buy me, I'm in Clinique 3 step, and I worked!"
Oh well, not giving any huge result for me...
