Most Helpful Positive

Love this

Natasha

This cleanser is so good, dare I say better than the original. It foams up really nicely and removes makeup well. It doesn't irritate my eyes like other cleanser can (I'm lazy and will avoid double cleansing or using a separate eye makeup remover at all costs). This has also really helped with 'maskne', I've noticed a few very stubborn spots come up on my chin over the last few months and since including this in my routine they have gone done.

too strong

found this way too strong and irritating for my skin, might just be me though
  1. Great product

    K

    My skin feels really clean after I use it, and really good for my skin texture

  3. don't use near eyes

    Emma

    I have dry skin but surprisingly I found this cleanser didn't strip my skin or leave it feeling dry and tight. Had a nice cooling and tingling feeling. However, I won't be repurchasing because it really stings the eyes! Might not be a big deal for some but I do like to cleanse my whole face including the eye area to get makeup residue that my first cleanse might have left behind.
  4. Cooling and effective cleansing

    Laura

    I usually use this cleanser at night as it can feel a little drying so using a heavier moisturiser afterwards is best for me. Apart from that, it has a lovely cooling sensation and works well for my sensitive skin.

  6. Use Carefully

    Kim

    I don't have oily skin but do have some spots from old pimples that I thought this cleanser would help me get rid of.

    The cleanser is a good texture, foams up which is good but beware - do not use around the eye area. I guess because the product is quite strong, it has made the skin around my eyes very dry, red and burning. I guess this is because this skin is more delicate than every...

  7. Even my partner loves it!

    Kat97

    Loved this product since I got a freebee so it was a must have on my next purchase.
    A nice gel texture with minimal fragrance leaves the skin smooth and not striped of oils. I put my partner onto using this as well and he loves that it has cleared up his acne without making his skin feel tight.
  8. Super effective and gentle

    Saved my skin from maskne!

    A combination of purging from actives and mask wearing had my skin doing weird things. My $60+ aha/bha cleanser wasn’t cutting it anymore. I was a bit worried about starting an ‘acne’ cleanser, remember the harsh formulations of my youth, but didn’t want a small problem to become a big problem and have had good experiences with LRP and my sensitive skin. All I can say is wow, so thankful for this ...

  9. Helping with oily T-zone

    Agusha

    I've been using the blue effaclar for a while and decided to change to this one because of my really oily T-zone. I saw improvement since day one using this product. Its quite light and doesnt tingle in my sking. It hasn't been a life saver so far but I'll keep using it
  10. Go to cleanser

    Nat

    This is my new favourite cleanser. I got this product as a sample and after a few uses, I bought the full size bottle and I'm not buying another cleanser any time soon. This makes my skin feel so clean and gets rid of any blackheads I have
  11. La Roche face wash

    Stephie

    I heard about this wash on the podcast. I find it affordable and gentle on the skin, whilst still removing make up. It goes well on my clarisonic as well in the shower, foamy enough. I think it does a good job of removing oil and dirt off the skin. Overall would recommend. I probably have combination skin.
  12. Amazing

    Prabhjot

    I use it 1-2 times a week and this makes my skin squeaky clean.
  13. Fantastic!

    Line

    Leaves skin feeling smooth, clean and fresh, light and easy to use daily.
  14. Wow

    Fa

    With frequent use for weeks , my skin has seen such amazing results. Been getting lots of compliments :)
  15. A staple

    Kelly

    Have been using this for the past few months in the evenings in conjunction with several other products to help my oily skin.
    Doesn’t strip my skin, but cleanses it well (after using a cleansing oil). Love the tingly feeling I get from the salicylic acid.
  16. My skin has never been better

    Shelbs

    I started using this product and it was an absolute game changer! My skin went from red, tired looking, breakouts to clear, healthy glowing skin and the comments came flying in on how beautiful my skin was. I am now hooked and have all this brands products and using daily.
  17. Soothing and clearing!

    Em

    This cleanser feels so cooling on the skin, it's very calming and I find myself reaching for it when I'm having an inflamed breakout moment. It lathers nicely, my skin feels clean and fresh after use and I find it does help to clear breakouts. I haven't noticed any 'peeling' effects as such, but I'm a seasoned user of active ingredients.
  18. Very stripping for the face

    Amanda

    I used this for a few nights while I was staying at my partner's house - I have oily/combo skin that tolerates actives very well and doesn't get reactive. With every cleanser I use, I wash my face for at least 1-2 minutes - I noticed that this foamy cleanser left my skin with that dreaded 'squeaky clean' feeling, but dismissed it. However, I noticed on the third day that my face started peeling A...

    sarah

    I tried the sample of this product and after three uses, I immediately converted to buying the full size. Has really helped with controlling my oil throughout the day and controlling/ reducing my pimples. Only negative is this cleanser when gets into the eyes stinnnnngs, so avoid the eye area and i let it sit on the skin for a minute. Doesn't leave my skin feeling tight, but my skin looks squeaky ...

  20. Clearest skin in years

    Olivia

    I have been using this every few days to help with stubborn blackheads and milia on my cheeks. In a little over a week my skin is looking better than it has in years. An added bonus is the redness on my face has almost disappeared. I have been using a much more expensive brand for years with no reduction in redness.
    Very happy I came across this product.
  21. Helping with Acne on Sensitive Skin

    Hannah

    Bought this for my boyfriend, he has sensitive skin but is acne prone. He uses this twice a day and it has been helping to keep some of his pimples down (mostly hormonal). All pimples that arise are less irritated and they disappear quicker. Great gentle cleanser if you're looking for something with BHAs in it.
  22. Amazing

    Singh

    This product takes care of acne but especially my pustules. It dries them without drying my skin.
  23. clean skin

    laura

    great product and gentle on the skin within 2 weeks i noticed a difference in my skin!
  24. Best cleanser ever!

    Nicdob

    Bought this for my daughter, who has had some recent breakouts. This cleared up her skin so well. Anyway I gave it a go, and love it too, so I bought some for myself. It’s fantastic.
  25. Effective BHA cleanser

    C

    As a cleanser, this product seems to work fairly well - it did not leave my skin too tight and it cleaned my skin properly.

    As an BHA product, it also seems to do the job of somewhat minimising my sebaceous filaments (I left it on my skin for a minute in the shower whenever I used it) . I would not recommend using it every day unless your skin is already used to daily BHA use - it wi...

  26. Cool & Clean!

    Sarah

    A lovely clear gel that has a slight menthol effect feels like it opens my pores right up and cleans them right out:) definitely doesn't make my skin feel dry or tight after use - which I loved! A little goes a long way too. Just a pea size amount is enough to lather the face and neck. If you want a good deep cleanse you can actually FEEL I would absolutely reccomend this cleansing gel :)
  27. Very impressed

    Nicole

    I got this as a sample and it was also recommend by a friend. I can honestly say my face has never felt this clean and smooth. So impressed. I just received the 200ml size and a little goes a long way - it’s going to last me ages!
  28. Nice cooling effect

    Gabrielle

    Normal gel-like consistency, but I really enjoy the cooling effect of the gel - I have been experiencing some pregnancy-based rosacea and acne - this gel has quite a pleasant calming effect on my skin!
  29. Perfect for sensitive skin!

    Megan

    I have very sensitive, oily skin and need cleansers and exfoliates to help with my acne and acne scars without irritating my sensitive skin.

    I received this as a gift with a previous purchase and was a little hesitant to use it as most ‘micro-peeling’ or exfoliating facial scrubs/washes tend to hurt my skin. However I was very surprised with this! It doesn’t feel rough, yet it left m...

  30. Easy addition of BHA

    Em

    I got this as a sample in my last Adore Beauty order and was keen to try this BHA addition to my skin care regime. It was non-irritating and didn't leave my skin red like some other BHA products I've tried. It is a lightly foaming cleanser, just keep it out of your eyes!
  31. So good!

    C

    This is such a good cleanser. Gently exfoliates the skin whole deeply cleaning leaving skin so smooth and bright.
  32. Left my skin feeling smooth

    Rosie22

    I use this in the morning, its a good gentle peel (I have sensitive skin). It tingles a bit but leaves my skin feeling smooth and exfoliated. I moisturise straight after to minimise dryness. This product works well for me!
  33. Lovely but avoid eyes

    Cephalopod

    I use this as an exfoliant and probably will reduce to 2 times a week as it’s so efficient. I stupidly got my eye area which did leave a little eczema patch so be careful.
  34. I love this cleanser! It cleans my skin so well without it being too harsh or drying.

    Jessica

    This product is very good for my skin! I have combination skin , after washing the skin is very clean and gentle. It cleanses my face without overdrying or upsetting my sensitive skin
