A must have product
from San Jose ca
I have never wrote a review online before, but this cleanser deserves a review! I have only used it for 4 days but I see a big improvement in my skin. I have acne prone skin and had dried it out by using way too many drying products lately.. this is bringing my skin back to normal quickly.. I could go on and on.. this product is amazing!

Great for Oily Skin!
By PCOS Face
from Chesterton, IN
I have always struggled to find a face wash and skin regimen to help my extremely oily skin. I have PCOS, and have struggled with skin issues since my later teenage years. I don't know how many products I have tried (tons!), but none of them have matched this face wash. It's gentle enough to not irritate, and yet strong enough to cut through the oil and makeup from the day. It's not overly drying nor moisturizing- it's perfect. Every time I use it, my face feels clean! I started using this face wash in conjunction with a daily 2% BHA exfoliant and the PC gel moisturizer, and my face has become clearer and even my closed comedones have started disappearing. I can't tell you how much my confidence has improved because of PC products, including this face wash.
Too drying for sensitive skin
from New York
I have combination skin, sensitive that can get a bit oily in the summer but otherwise leans toward dry, and can be acne prone in the chin area. However, I found this cleanser too drying even in the summer. I went through a whole bottle because it removes makeup well pretty well but I would not repurchase.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for excessively oily, sensitive, aging skin
By Animal Rescue Helper

About Me Minimalist
I'm new to PC and had recently started using the Resist Kit for Aging and Acne prone skin. So far the product that has caught my attention is this face wash! # How I Use It- AM this is my first step- PM Followed after removing makeup with DHC oil- I use about a generous pea size each time. Note: I get the same great results in both the AM and PM# My Experience and ThoughtsThis creamy soap turns into a cushy/velvety foam that effectively loosens the grimy greasy layer caused by hours of oiliness. It rinses off cleanly and leaves the skin feeling fresh, soft, and moist.Considering that my skin is very oily (so oily that it looks like I'm wearing a layer of vaseline on my face) , I can't remember the last time I came across a face wash that left my skin feeling grease free on my oily areas with a supple and dewey finish.I'm hoping that my other skin concerns will improve overtime with this new skin regime! Also, I really appreciate that PC provides reasonably priced high-quality products that are free of animal testing < 3# My Skin Concerns (so many...)Excessive oiliness, enlarged pores, rough bumpy texture, cystic acne, black heads, white heads, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, scars from acne

About Me Beauty Expert
I never write reviews but after using this product I had to do so...I have been battling adult acne since having my second child, for a good ten years. Each year it has been getting worse and have tried everything - Proactiv, Clinque, Obagi, prescription drugs and pads, Acne Free, etc. with no relief. I have been using this product for a month, and have literally been amazed. My face has cleared and I have only gotten two breakouts. I use this with the hydrator and mattifying liquid (toner cause me to breakout) and my pore size has been reduced and for once in my life I am not worried about how I am going to cover up my acne. I can go to the pool with my kids, workout in a gym, and cut down on the amount of foundation I am wearing and touching up during the day. Even my husband has noticed the difference. Many don't realize that when you suffer from acne, it dramatically affects your confidence and self-esteem. I can finally say mine is being restored thanks to Paula's Choice.

More and more I am switching completely to PC -- the products are really wonderful and the price is right. This cleanser is perfect for summer or anytime -- it gets the sweat, dirt and makeup off your face without stripping it. Follow with a PC toner and you've got it right!

At last, the perfect cleanser
from Boise, ID
My skin tends to be very oily (I would have to blot my face with tissues or paper towels several times throughout the day), and I had dry, flaky patches of skin from breakouts and drying salicylic acid acne products I was using. I had been using one of those battery-operated exfoliating devices along with an abrasive cleanser for oily skin, and I still had oily, rough, flaky skin. I hated my skin. I thought I had no hope.About a month ago, I decided to try this cleanser, followed by the Resist Weightless Advanced Repairing Toner. I have been using both products twice daily.A couple of weeks in, I noticed that I wasn't breaking out as much. I had maybe one small blemish a week, which would go away in a day or two (I was careful not to squeeze or pick at it).A week ago I noticed how soft and smooth my face feels. Seriously. I have never had such soft skin. (I stopped using the exfoliating products a month ago.) My face feels like baby skin.Today, at 5:00 p.m., with the heat outside at 94 degrees, I looked in the mirror and was shocked at the face looking back at me. No shine, no "my-makeup-is-melting" look. My skin is radiant and my makeup still looks fresh. I realized I haven't been blotting my skin because I haven't needed to!I am so happy with this cleanser and the accompanying toner. Worth every penny. Thanks, Paula!

My holy grail!
Almost a year since I discovered it. I've been struggling to find the right facial wash to my oily/sensitive acne prone skin. Since I moved in Canada I tried 5 different kinds of facial wash with different brands. All of them were always giving me acne after 1 month of use. With regards to my skin type I always been so picky and careful for any products. I am very happy to have this. Hope it won't change.

Gentle makeup remover
Loved this cleanser. It was something that helped me clean off my makeup (I don't wear waterproof mascara, so I don't know how that would work with this cleanser), but this cleanser also doesn't strip my skin dry. I've always hated that "squeaky clean" feeling with gel cleansers, and other cream cleansers don't make me feel clean at all. This is a cream cleanser that cleans my face perfectly without irritating my skin. I'm always willing to try Paula's Choice products because of their amazing customer service. If I'm not happy, they're willing to refund me. I don't take a risk when I'm willing to try new things with them, and I'm glad I decided to try this one.
