Review Overview

The only point of interest to this standard, but well-formulated cleanser is the “Scrublet” device that L’Oreal includes. It’s an oval-shaped soft rubber disc outfitted with several nubs designed to provide a more thorough cleansing experience. You can consider this an alternative to using a washcloth, although the washcloth lets you cover more surface area faster. L’Oreal omitted the irritating and skin-damaging menthol and fragrance they included in their other go 360° cleansers, so this is indeed better for sensitive skin.

Claims

Fragrance- and soap-free formula deeply cleans skin and unclogs—pore by pore—without overdrying. Removes all traces of oil, dirt and makeup. Pores look visibly smaller. Includes the Scrublet soft cleansing disk: more effective than cleansing by hand; super-soft, gentle, flexible material.

Ingredients

Brand Overview

L'Oreal Paris At-A-Glance

Strengths: Budget-friendly prices; good makeup removers; wide assortment of self-tanning options; one of the best, most comprehensive makeup collections at the drugstore, with superb options in almost every category; the mascaras are a tough act to follow.

Weaknesses: Jar packaging hinders some of the skincare formulas; many of their skincare formulas contain problematic amounts of fragrance and/or other irritants; exaggerated anti-aging claims.

L'Oreal's extensive makeup collection retains its stature as one of the better selections at the drugstore, though they have stiff competition from Revlon and, in some cases, sister company Maybelline New York. In recent years L'Oreal has made significant strides with foundation shades, powder textures, concealers, and, of course, superlative mascaras that rarely fail to impress. Their lipsticks are excellent and you will find many L'Oreal makeup products have a Lancome counterpart, and that the differences are minor—if there are any at all.

L'Oreal's displays in many drugstores reflect better-organized products and shade categories (though testers are still scarce). Given the number of lipsticks they sell, it only makes sense to put them in color families so consumers have a better shopping experience. Their True Match products are also sensibly laid out, but the rest of the foundations aren't as organized, likely due to the smaller selection of shades. Speaking of foundations, L'Oreal has made further strides by offering more that provide sufficient UVA protection. Revlon still has the edge for consistently launching impressive foundations with sunscreen, but at least L'Oreal is (finally) catching up.

The bottom line is that every category of L'Oreal’s makeup has some winning (and in some cases, benchmark-setting) products.

Unfortunately, despite the brands’ enormous presence in the beauty industry, L'Oreal's moisturizers and treatment products are a nearly all unremarkable and repetitive. When it comes to moisturizers or serums, just about anything from Dove, Olay, Neutrogena, or Aveeno is preferred. L'Oreal does well with most of their cleansers, along with scrubs and self-tanning products, but given the widespread availability and financial resources of this line, they could be doing so much more. The good news is their makeup has made major strides and now ranks as the best overall color collection at the drugstore—imagine the results if their skin care followed suit.

Boring Cleanser

This was a basic, boring cleanser. The smell too was boring. The consistency of it was similar to a thick, white icing. I had imagined that the scrublet that came with it would magically scrub out my blackheads--of course, that isn't possible. However, the scrublet does seem like a nice way to gently clean and massage the skin and it's possibly more sanitary than using a facial cleansing brush.
