Most Helpful Criticism

Smells amazing but otherwise uninspiring
I really love the scent of this product and as with all of the Aesop range the packaging is nice too. I find if I have any kind of product on my face such as sunscreen this cleanser is not quite enough and also my skin can feel a little tight afterwards. It's nice but for my skin type I think there are better products in this price bracket.
  1. The scent is..!

    it has strong scent. the scent has like botanical garden notations. the most thing was that I liked it. the product is already perfect.

  4. Lovely but basic

    This is a good basic cleanser. I have sensitive skin and it didn't irritate. A double cleanse to remove make up was necessary. I didn't rebuy because I like my facial cleanser to do more than just clean.
  5. just ok

    this is good for daily use, it doesn't leave my face feeling dry but it's also not a deep cleanser either. not sure if I'd repurchase
  6. aesop stuff is all so lovely

    This product smells divine, so fresh, natural and clean! It's on the pricier side but all aesop products are, I guess because it's locally made and got natural ingredients then it's more costly to produce.

    I use a cream cleanser in the morning and this gel foaming cleanser at night. I think I could probably find a "better" active cleanser for my skin but this one is really nice and I like to use more earthly products before bed. So I'll definitely keep using it but for that reason I'll only give 4 stars.

    I actually kept the pump from another product and I use it to dispense this in the shower - it's so much easier to use.

  7. just okay

    I have combination skin and this cleanser was just okay. It's not the best cleanser I've used and there's nothing special about it that would make me repurchase
  8. Lovely scent

    This face cleanser is so great but only downfall is that it isn't foamy, but this can be mediated by using a cloth or sponge.
  9. Lovely product

    Has a lovely subtle scent and is gentle on my sensitive skin! Leaves my face feeling refreshed, bright and clear.
  10. Lovely Gentle Cleanser

    I use this cleanser throughout winter - it's very light, and doesn't foam much. Find I need to use it twice if wearing a lot of make up. Best for dry-normal skin
  11. Love this cleanser

    Lasts a while! doesn't leave you breaking out! smells good!
  12. Good for combination skin, light texture and nice smell

    My skin is combination and recently I have been experiencing hormonal acne. After many trial and errors, this cleanser has not aggravated my skin. It leaves my skin fresh and not too dry. The texture reminds me of an oil cleanser and does not leave a residue. The smell is great but not ideal if you don't like herb/spicy fragrances.
  13. Super gentle!!

    I found this cleanser to be nice and gentle for my sensitive skin! The smell is divine and I look forward to using it in the morning, definitely recommend!
  14. love this product

    Love this product leaves my skin bright and clean
  15. Hydrating

    Nice for basic cleansing. Personally this product alone cannot remove my makeup. It's hydrating and good for sensitive skin
  16. Pleasant... but Aesop have better

    I find this works well for my sensitive skin, it's good as a daily gentle cleanser in the mornings, but it doesn't really remove impurities or if you want to give your skin a thorough clean. Still a really lovely product! Good for younger skin perhaps
  17. Not for me

    Lovely smell but found it sort of sat on my skin and made me a bit oily and my face didn't feel truly clean after use hopefully, works for some just not for me
  18. Good but $$$

    This is a nice face cleaner, I find it doesn't get my makeup all off but it has a fresh feel and a nice smell. I think for the price you could find something that works as well, was quite annoyed it didn't take my makeup off but its nice if you're using as a refresh
  19. Quite gentle compared to the other Aesop cleansers

    I find this cleanser is much gentler than the other Aesop cleaners. I find I can use it every day and it doesn't dry my skin out.
  20. Very lovely

    A lovely, luxurious-feeling facial cleanser with a very pleasant smell. Though I probably wouldn't buy it again due to the price being a little too much for what it's worth.
  21. very gently removes makeup

    this is a face cleanser that i use sometimes to remove my makeup with. it does not makes my skin look dull or dry and i enjoy using this because after using it my skin feels so soft
  22. Smells divine

    This cleanser is amazing! My skin is very sensitive and prone to flaking, drying and
    redness and finding the right skin regimen has been very difficult but this product is gentle and scent is very mild (some AESOP products can be overpowering). It may seem pricey but a little goes a long way. You don't need much. A teaspoon day and night I find lasts me about 2 months in this size.
  23. Fabulous

    This cleanser is fabulous. Literally it what it states fabulous cleanser. I do find I have to use a little more then other cleansers but it's definitely a really good bargain. I find mine lastes about 30-40 days!
  24. Works well, smells quite nice but pricey

    This is a great gel based cleanser I have tried a few times now with samples. It leaves the skin clean and fresh without any soapy residue or tightness and smells quite nice. However it is quite expensive and I have steered clear of purchasing a full bottle to date. It is nice but there are similar gel cleansers out there that are half the price.
  25. Great

    I bought this to replace my Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser as I wanted to switch to a gel one. My skin feels so refreshed and smooth after cleansing. Only need a very small amount for the face and neck, the citrus minty smell is gorgeous. I had a spot on my face and after using this for 2 days it clears away, drying the spot and the redness is gone. Great for sensitive and dry skin.
  26. Smells great

    Received a sample of this - really love the smell. I wouldn’t purchase it for myself purely because my sensitive skin doesn’t tolerate essential oils/extracts on a regular basis but if your skin is more tolerant this would be a lovely way to start the day.
  27. Value

    This cleanser is amazing! My skin is very sensitive and prone to flaking, drying and
    redness and finding the right skin regimen has been very difficult but this product is gentle and scent is very mild (some AESOP products can be overpowering). It may seem pricey but a little goes a long way. You don't need much. A teaspoon day and night I find lasts me about 2 months in this size.
  28. Not great for dry skin

    The product is low foaming and my skin never felt too clean after using it. This is probably because I have dry skin though and really needed to stick to the parsley seed cleanser. I would think it would be great for other skin types though. Also has a lovely smell!!
  29. Very gently cleanser

    Beautiful cleanser smells great, removes makeup, not heavy eye makeup, and is very gentle. Will continue to repurchase.
  30. Not as good as others in the range

    This is not as good as some of the other cleansers in the range. I find this doesn't remove makeup as well.

    I tried a few face cleaners of the brand and from this particular I was disappointed. The parsley seed cleaner is much better, and when you pay a high price for soap, it's important. Recommends that the parsley seed cleaner in place, they are almost identical in price and is much better than it
  32. Good gentle cleanser

    I find this works well for my sensitive skin, it's good as a daily gentle cleanser in the mornings, but it doesn't really remove impurities or if you want to give your skin a thorough clean.
  33. great

    I used this product for many years and I loved it, it smells lovely and made my skin feel like a baby's butt. The b and tea toner is perfect to follow this cleanser as the combination is great at eliminating oil. I only changed products because my skin became less oily as I moved from my teens to my 20's and this product is a little drying.
  34. Best cleanser

    I got gifted this cleanser not long ago and I’m hooked - it’s so refreshing and really cleanses deep. I have combination skin and use this every day and had cleared my skin right up and hasn’t made me as oily as previous cleaner.
  35. Worth the money.

    I have sensitive skin prone to big, blind pimples that scar. Great at preventing these, gentle on my skin, smells amazing.
  36. love this

    A super great face cleanser that leaves my skin so soft and clean. Just wish it wasnt so pricey
  37. Does the job, but pricey

    I love Aesop but it's pricey! The products do work well though and the cleanser is no exception. Lasts quite a while though if you use sparingly.
  38. Great

    My favourite cleanser of all time. I’ve used it on and off for many years and always go back to it.
    I love how light and non greasy it is, no tight feeling on my dry/slightly combo skin, it removes all my makeup, and smells great. It’s a good option for acne prone skin as well.

    Love it.
  39. Nice

    This has a really nice texture and consistency however I just found products that I preferred that I think worked a bit better for my skin type, which is more sensitive/dehydrated.
  40. Unfortunately not for me

    I was really excited to try this cleanser as I have read so many positive reviews about it but unfortunately for me it just didn't do the job. I agree that it is great for sensitive skin, my skin is very sensitive and this did not irritate it which is great however I found it didn't make my skin feel 100% clean afterwards, I found it couldn't get off the stubborn makeup and for the price it just hasn't been worth it for me.
    I gave them 2 stars as Aesop packaging is beautiful - i'll give them that!
  41. Okay

    Gentle, but does get everything off. I do find that it's not hydrating enough for my normal/combination type skin.
  42. Decent

    This is a good product but there isn't anything special about it. It works well with sensitive skin types and doesn't cause any reactions but it also hasn't made any significant changes to my skin as i had hoped. I also wish the dispensing of the product was more efficient though i do love the rest of the packaging. The product is a bit pricey but you get a lot of product for it. I would say try out the smaller bottle to decide whether you like it.
  43. Great product - but very pricey

    I love this product and it does work well but i dont know how i feel about spending $50 on a product i am washing off my face! I probably wont repurchase for the price but it was a lovely product
  44. Gentle smells good

    Great scent, very gentle on the skin but don't like packaging!
  45. Awesome cleanser

    I really like this low-foaming gel-like cleanser. Removes all my makeup effectively without leaving my skin feeling stripped. I wish this came in a pump bottle though, you just pour it out into your hand, and have to be careful that you dont overspill.
  46. Does the job

    Effective at removing makeup and removing and dirt from the skin, pricey for what it is though.
  47. Gentle and effective.

    Gentle, doesn't break me out, doesn't dry me out and dissolves makeup easily! Only thing is be careful when pouring out the product as way too much can pour out really quickly.
  48. Gentle Cleanser

    I use this in winter when my skin is quite dry, and it works wonders :) leaves the skin feeling clean and fresh, though I do find I have to cleanse twice (unless I'm using my usual pre-cleanse oil) to really remove makeup.
  49. Best cleanser I’ve ever used

    I used this solidly for a few years and only gave it up due to ageing skin needing different things. It’s non drying, smoothing, non greasy, smells great and is a pleasure to use.

    It controls acne and balances out combo skin. I can’t recommend it enough and I’ve used a whole lot of skincare products. I’m currently on a regime of Ordinary and Clinique as I’m older now and need more heavy duty targeted stuff.

    For ref I’m 43 with combo dry skin.
  50. Works wonders

    I have acne prone and sensitive skin. I have never found a cleanser that makes my face glow and clears up my acne like this does. I use it only at night and I really notice the improvement. I went a couple of weeks without it and used a cheaper cleanser, and straight away broke out. Definitely worth the money.
  51. like!

    i have dry skin and most cleansers can make it worse. this one is quite good, it foams but just a little bit and my face feels lightly cleansed
  52. Good for sensitive skin

    I have sensitive skin and this cleanser doesn't dry out my skin after use. Very gentle and has a nice scent
  53. Good for combination skin

    I have combination skin and this cleanser isn't too harsh but it's not overly gentle either. My skin does feel clean afterwards
  54. Gentle

    I have sensitive skin and this cleanser is one of my favourites. The scent is so gorgeous!
  55. Love it

    I have combination skin around my face & this covers it all. I love that it’s natural & friendly. Has definitely made a difference to the feel of my skin & decreased breakouts. My only issue is the glass bottle, I’ve smashed 3 in my small shower so far, it’s quite the expense to use half the bottle & buy another.
  56. Amazing

    Love this so much! Makes my skin feel super clean and fresh!!
  57. My skin feels amazing!

    I have only used this product a few times but I can feel and see the difference already! My skin is softer, smoother and clearer. It is also amazing at removing makeup. I keep this beauty in my shower and use it twice daily. My skin is much happier!
  58. Great cleanser

    Really love this cleanser, it is probably my favourite, i just wish they would make a bigger size, when i use this at the end of the day i find i probably use a bit more because it doesn't lather the best when you are removing makeup but still a great cleanser, i have very problematic skin and this seems to work with all my skin concerns and really leaves my skin feeling great
  59. A gentle cleanser with a lovely scent

    This cleanser feels very gentle on the skin and has a delightful herby scent to it. It doesn't contain sodium lauryl sulfate which is a big plus from me. My skin isn't left feeling stripped of its natural oils after cleansing! The only thing I would consider a con is that you really need to wash your face twice with this cleanser if you're wearing make-up in order to get it all off. I would recommend!
  60. great product

    I loved this cleanser. It's perfect in every way. The scent is refreshing but yet over powering nor too strong. The texture is in gel form in low foaming format. Little amount is enough to cleanse no make up day while a little more is required to remove make up.
  61. Lovely and refreshing on my oily skin

    Aesop can do no wrong in my eyes and this face wash is no exception! It smells amazing, feels soothing on the skin and leaves you feeling clean without that tight feeling you get from some face washes.
    The smell is so pleasant I find it relaxing to use after a hectic day! :)
    I alternate this face wash with an Alpha one I also really like using and would recommend to people with most skin types.
  62. Good for fresh-feeling skin

    I do love this face wash for winter but I don't think it has mindblowing effects. I prefer it to others I have used in the past because it is cruelty-free and it has a beautiful smell
  63. Fabulous Face Cleanser

    Gentle, yet super effective cleaners. Smells lovely and leaves my skin super soft. Much better for a morning cleanse, however I do not wear heavy makeup and use a pre-cleansing milk for my first cleanse in the evening so this is perfect for me. I wear mineral powder and for those who wear more makeup, this may not be right for you. It's light, doesn't foam up too much, but does the job in cleaning my skin. Thumbs up!
  64. Ok

    The smell is nice and it's a gentle cleanser that does remove makeup and clean my face, but it's not amazing. I wouldn't recommend this product due to the price, when there are many products that are similar for a cheaper amount
  65. Great daily cleanser

    Love this product to cleanse my skin daily. Removes dirt and oil well and leave my skin feeling clean and fresh
  66. Really nice

    I tend to try a lot of cleansers. I have a sample of this and I've found it to be effective. It removes daily gunk and oil well.
  67. Nice but not amazing

    This is a lovely product- smells great, feels lux ...but not worth the cash if you ask me. No amazing results, just boujee to use.

    If you have the cash to splash go ahead but I think i'll save my money as I'm sure I can find something similar for a much lower price point.
  68. Too expensive, would not purchase again

    With such raving reviews, I had high expectations for this cleanser. It depicts a seemingly natural and gentle way of cleansing, although reading the ingredient list, this is not the case. After using for a week (some times twice a day, sometimes one) my face became dry, irritated and broke out in small pimples.The product stung my eyes whilst trying to remove mascara. It is also way too expensive. I really wanted to love this product, but it has been the complete opposite.
  69. Simple but amazing

    This cleanser is so gentle. I have quite sensitive skin but this has never caused me to breakout. I tend to always go back to this one which I have no major skin concerns.
  70. Normal

    Nice neutral cleanser that makes me feel fresh after i use it!
  71. Left feeling fabulous

    I have been using this face cleanser for a couple of months now and it hasn't caused me any breakouts or dryness. The smell is very natural and not overpowering. I always take a moment to smell it in my hands in the morning before applying it to my face. This product does not foam up a lot like you'd expect other commercial facial cleansers to but still lathers enough to thoroughly clean the face with just one pump. Personally, I like something that lathers a little more than this but this cleanser is still great for removing makeup, dirt and any other buildup that occurs throughout the day
  72. Fresh faced!

    Makes my face feel smooth and fresh after using and gets my makeup off very easily!
  73. 10/10 face cleanser

    I have normal to dry skin, no acne issues, recently damaged when sampling skincare containing AHA/acids, so I was after a gentle natural cleanser. I found the Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser to be simply amazing! In my opinion, it is the best cleanser in the Aesop range. It smells amaaaaazing!
  74. Lives up to its name!

    Fabulous non-foaming cleanser that removes all traces of makeup by using the smallest amount. I've switched to this cleanser from Aesop's Parsley Seed Oil Cleanser and an really enjoying how clean my face pass after one wash. Will definitely be buying again and again.

    This is hands down the BEST facial cleanser I have ever tried in my life. I have quite dry, sensitive skin and this works wonders for it.
    I have tried so many different facial cleansers and nothing works like this does. It's mild and not drying at all, nor is it too strong. I use it every night after showering, and sometimes in the morning too, and I've found that it is the only face wash to get RID of my pimples.

    Since using a MAC foundation, i developed heaps of dots on my forehead and i hated them; they looked like pimples in photos/in the light but they weren't. they were just random dots.

    Since using the Aesop fabulous face wash i've found that it brought those random 'dots' up to the top and turned them into pimples. Sure it doesn't sound right, and sounds bad, but in actual fact it is the best; the dots that were on my forehead was actually congestion (pimples that couldn't quite reach the top). My pimples have all disappeared now and my skin is back in its state it used to be (clear)

  76. Aesop is amazing!

    This face wash makes my skin so soft.
    It cleans all my pores without feeling harsh. It smells so good and comes in cool glass bottles which I keep.
    So glad I have found Aesop!
  77. Love it!

    I'm not sure if Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser is enough to sway me from my 'HG' Alpha-H Triple Action Cleanser, but I am really enjoying it as a treat away from my usual routine. Aesop Fabulous Face Cleanser smells and feels so refreshing as a second cleanse at night and leaves my skin looking bright with absolutely no signs of irritation.

    I'm a big fan of gel cleansers and this one is awesome - the texture is great, not too thin and leaves my face satisfyingly clean and is easy to rinse off. I've been using it with the pump (available here on Adore separately - but keep the lid for travelling!) and it really makes it a cinch to use at night. Highly recommend this Aesop product if you prefer or wish to try gel cleansers. They really are so much kinder on your skin than foaming cleansers.
  78. Look forward to washing my face!

    I am using this with the Foreo Luna Mini and am loving it. Cleanser doesn't feel detergent-y like some cleansers. It's quite calming - great for my problem skin :)
  79. Great for frequent use

    Most cleansers / face washes dry my skin out if I use them everyday but this one has been great. Definitely get what you pay for with this one! It's not overly soapy which I think is due to the natural ingredients Aesop use in their products, this is something I also like about this product.
  80. Great product

    Love how its not traditionally very foamy. After using I feel as though its brightened and evened out my skin tone. Smells great, non irritating for sensitive skin and doesn't leave that tight cleansed feeling most cleansers do. But also does a great job at washing away the dirt
  81. Holy Grail of cleansers!

    I've been using this cleanser every day for almost a year, and it has really helped to keep my skin clear without drying it out. Very gentle and smells nice too! Highly recommended if you're having trouble finding a cleanser for problem skin.
  82. I use it every day & I find its soft on the skin (doesn't dry my skin out), smells great & my face feels fabulous afterwards. I used to use the Amazing face Cleanser but switched to Fabulous - well worth it!
  83. Hi girls! Just a quick reply to those of you who stated previously that you hated the packaging of the Aesop Fabulous face cleanser ... there is now a pump connection for all 200ml Aesop bottles! At only $1.95 you just throw the lid away and insert and screw on the pump connection. Phew, no more undoing and doing-up of pesky lids! And the fabulous face cleanser is merely a quick pump away ♥♥
  84. Fabulous indeed It takes about a week to get used the non foam You think it isnt cleansing but it does no tightness either and you just need a tiny amount about 1ml.
  85. It was OK; not amazing, but not bad either. I would liken this to Jurlique; but the packaging is much cooler. The cleanser is foaming so it gives a through cleanse and removes all make up. I didn't see any real improvement in my skin's over all tone and texture.
  86. Love this non-foaming gel cleanser, I may have found my HG! Smells divine, gorgeous to use. Cleans thoroughly and leaves the skin feeling so soft. Would love it even more if it came with a pump dispenser as I dislike screw top bottles. But a fabulous product anyway.
  87. Lovely product. Low foaming product. I use this in the morning and it's a great natural gentle cleanser. It's fantastic. Presentation is great too.
  88. My holy grails of facial cleansers, will never be without it. Really clears up my skin. Lovely scent, non-stripping, the bottle is gorgeous and lasts forever. What a gorgeous product!
  89. I have officially migrated to the world of Botanical Ingredients. Despite its gel consistency, initially this cleanser seemed to be drying out my skin. But for whatever magical botanical reason, with daily use the drying effect dissipated and my skin feels fresh, clean and reasonably clear every day. Two words: Absolutely Fabulous. (It had to be done)
  90. This really did a great job cleansing my skin of all traces of make-up however I accidently got some in my eye and it stung soo bad!! And left my eye sore and red for about 45mins so for that reason alone I wouldn't buy a full size.
  91. This stuff seriously changed my skin. I went from a dry bumpy mess, to great skin is a matter of a week. I love it and I will never be without it my life. Love.
  92. This cleanser is - as the name suggests - fabulous. It gives a thorough clean without stripping my skin and leaving it dry. Smells great too. My issue with it, though, is the ridiculous glass jar. It LOOKS fantastic, but is so impractical. A pump (and plastic bottle) would make it so much more efficient to use.
