Love washing my face with this product


Leaves my skin so soft! Definitely reconmenr

Most Helpful Criticism



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.
  1. Not cleansing enough


    This product doesn't really lather up, so I found it quite hard to remove makeup with. I ended up feeling like I needed to keep adding more as it didn't feel like it was cleaning my skin effectively, but obviously this is not ideal as you don't really want to be wasting money doing this for each cleanse. Not sure if it would be effective enough to remove an initial oil cleanse either.
  2. Love washing my face with this product


    Leaves my skin so soft! Definitely reconmenr
  3. Good for sensitive skin


    If you have a dry or very sensitive skin then this product is good for you. However if you wear makeup on a daily base or you have a combination/ oil skin then this is not a good choice. I prefer the face wash with rich foaming which gives me a sense of cleanses. On the r hand, this product doesn’t foam at all, so I don’t feel it works like a face washer
  4. very gentle on skin

    Perfecting Skin

    it is a very effective cleanser that was so gentle on the skin it removed the dirt and makeup on my skin so nicely and left my skin so hydrated and soft. i have just used a sample of it and i am hooked. i have dry skin
  5. Good for combo skin


    This is good for combination skin, not so much for sensitive. Doesn't provide a squeaky clean cleanse.
  6. Must have


    Feel so fresh every time I use it!! Wish it had a pump top
  7. My favourite go to cleanser


    This is an amazing cleanser which doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped.
  8. Amazing face cleanser!


    This cleanser made my skin feel so smooth and soft after. I received it as a free sample with purchase but I will be purchasing it once I run out of my usual face cleansers. It smells great too.
  9. Beautiful on the skin


    I have dry/combination skin and don't normally use a cleanser however as my skin gets drier I really need to find one. I got this as a trial sample and I'd certainly buy this again, I loved the smell and the feeling on my skin faterards, however might investigate others as this is a but pricy.
  10. Gentle and Soothing


    Gentle facial cleanser that doesn't strip away too much from the skin. The floral herbal scent leaves you feeling like you've had a facial at a spa.

    The only negative is that this doesn't contain any actives do the results will vary compared to cleansing with other products with AHAs and BHAs.
  11. Fantastic cleanser


    I received this cleanser as a free sample and just had to buy some, not only does my face feel beautifully clean I just love the smell, also a little bit goes a long way
  12. Nice and Fresh


    I received this as a sample and really loved it. My skin felt nice and hydrated after using and it is very gentle on the skin. I would definitely purchase this.
  13. my sensitive skin did not like this


    my skin is super senstive and there is not many face cleansers it likes. This also wasn't that great for me and I found it drying
  14. Great scent


    I received a sample of this, and found it to be really nice and light, with a lovely herbal scent. I love that it has olive oil in it which is really nourishing without breaking me out. I'd possibly buy the full size if the price wasn't so dear...
  15. efficient, sooth


    I love this face cleanser! It always feels great on my skin and isn’t harsh. My skin usually dries out with most face cleaners, however with this is one it doesn’t. It’s awesome!!
  16. My fav of all the Aesop cleansers


    I have dry combo skin and have used this on and off for about a decade. I can’t really fault it - it removes all my makeup, it doesn’t strip my skin or make it feel tight and dry, and it smells amazing. A little goes a long way so even the small boggles last for ages. Wonderful basic product.
  17. Amazing cleanser for sensitive skin


    My skin is very sensitive with most cleansers either irrating or causing redness. I love how this cleanser is a low foaming daily gel cleanser that gives you a gentle and highly effective cleanse. This cleanser leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated and nourished. The bergamont rind, chamomille bud & rosemary leaf has calming properties. Since using this cleanser my skin does not break out as ofte...

  18. Not stripping


    This cleanser smells really nice and definitely doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or dehydrated. Cleanses really well, my skin feels clean and nourished after.
  19. Beautiful but not sold


    I received this cleanser as a sample and it was beautiful. It felt so lovely on my dry skin and cleaned it fairly well. I can't say that I would purchase the full size though as I just didn't think it was worth the price compared with other, better quality cleansers out there (I currently use Philosophy Purity 3 in 1 and love it)
  20. Nice


    I received a sample of this. Nice gentle gel cleanser that doesn't irritated, but it's a bit pricey so, I will probably stick with my asap.
  21. Not for me


    I got this as a sample and didn't like it at all. Probably comes down to personal preference as I'm usually a cream cleanser gal! But I felt like this just didn't 'do' anything. I've used other gel cleansers in the past and still liked them far more than this one. Wouldn't purchase.
  22. I didn't love it


    Smell is ok. better cleansers on the market which are a bit cheaper
  23. Best cleanser I've ever used


    I've been using Aesop products for 20 years. . Every now and again I run out and have to use another brand and every time I notice how my skin reacts badly until I get back to the Fabulous cleanser. I have very sensitive, combination (although more dry now I'm in my 40's) skin. Everyone's skin is different, but for me this is the only product I can use. Smells nice too.
  24. Lovely product

    Ms Z

    I received this as a sample quite liked the feel to it and loved the smell
  25. Nice and gentle


    I received a sample of this. Nice gentle gel cleanser with a nice smell.
  26. So hydrating


    Got this as a sample does not strip the skin so hydrating
  27. smells good but...


    This cleanser is gentle enough for my sensitive skin, and smells lovely. BUT it made my eyes sting a bit, and didn't remove eye makeup at all. So not for me.
  28. Longtime fave for sensitive skin!


    Does such an amazing job for such an inexpensive product. I've definitely noticed a difference in the few weeks I've been using this! My skin feels smoother, fresher and is noticeably clear.
  29. Love it!!


    I have oily/sensitive skin so its hard to find something that works well.I love this cleanser! It doesn't dry out my skin like most cleansers I buy nor does it irritate.
  30. Fine for sensitive skin, effective.


    I was very careful with how I used this cleanser because some of the ingredients Aesop uses in other products irritate my skin (mostly the Parsley seed line and anything heavy on the citrus) but I found this to be very gentle. It feels lovely on the face and I always felt really clean, but not stretchy and dry like some cleansers can leave my skin feeling. Check the ingredients if you've got sensi...

  31. Go to cleanser!


    This cleanser instantly became one of my go to's, after I first tried it, I loved it!

    It's a very gentle cleanser with a gel texture. You can work it into your skin and it doesn't foam at all, which was a bit strange at first to get used to at first as I had been using foamier products so I questioned f it was really cleaning, but on rinsing skin is squeaky clean!

    My skin...

  32. Best Cleanser ever


    Have gone through three bottles! Very gentle yet effective and leaves you feeling very clean. A little goes a long way.
  33. Lightweight


    love it, smells so beautiful and gives my skin a clear glow after using!
  34. Everyday go-to


    Beautiful cleanser, a little goes a long way without the need for lathering up. My skin always feels clean and fresh after use.
  35. Refreshing


    This cleanser is very refreshing. It didn’t break me out or fry out my skin. Definitely repurchase.
  36. love this


    Such a must have for those with problematic skin! Very hydrating cleanser that doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight!
  37. Its okay


    I love the smell of this cleanser and it feels good on the skin. But for the price im unsure if I see any difference in my skin.
  38. Great for everyone


    Lovely as it doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils, yet leaves the feeling clean and really refreshed. I love it for morning use or after i exercise and I am sweating a lot and have sunscreen on.
  39. doesn't lather


    I found this gel cleanser a bit weird, it didn't lather which is something I'm not use to
  40. Good product


    I quite enjoy the herbal smell of this cleanser for some reason. It helps to relaxes me a bit especially in a shower. Usually I will need a large amount when I am wearing sunscreen that day, the sunscreen is not water-resistant. However, it does make the skin smooth and clean afterwards.
  41. Not the best


    I normally like gel cleansers but not so much this one. It doesn't lather at all and afterwards my skin just doesn't feel like it's had a wash. I didn't get any negative effects, just no positive ones either. Smells pretty good but.
  42. Brilliant


    I love this cleanser! It doesn't dry out my skin like most cleansers I buy nor does it irritate. I have oily/sensitive skin so its hard to find something that works well.
    Its a little expensive but totally worth it - I wash my face twice a day and my bottle has lasted 6 months.
  43. 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.
  44. Love this


    I recieved this as a tester and loved it! I really felt like it gave my skin a good clean without stripping it at all,
    and skin felt very good after using. I will buy this
  45. 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.
  46. 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.
  47. 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
  48. 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...

  49. 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
  50. 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.
  51. Lovely product


    Has a lovely subtle scent and is gentle on my sensitive skin! Leaves my face feeling refreshed, bright and clear.
  52. 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
  53. Love this cleanser


    Lasts a while! doesn't leave you breaking out! smells good!
  54. 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.
  55. 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!
  56. love this product


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


    Nice for basic cleansing. Personally this product alone cannot remove my makeup. It's hydrating and good for sensitive skin
  58. 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
  59. 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
  60. 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
  61. 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.
  62. 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.
  63. 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
  64. 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.
  65. 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!
  66. 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.
  67. 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.
  68. 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.
  69. 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.
  70. 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!!
  71. Very gently cleanser


    Beautiful cleanser smells great, removes makeup, not heavy eye makeup, and is very gentle. Will continue to repurchase.
  72. 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
  74. 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.
  75. 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.
  76. 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.
  77. Worth the money.


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


    A super great face cleanser that leaves my skin so soft and clean. Just wish it wasnt so pricey
  79. 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.
  80. 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.
  81. 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.
  82. 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 h...

    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 o...

    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
  86. Gentle smells good


    Great scent, very gentle on the skin but don't like packaging!
  87. 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.
  88. Does the job


    Effective at removing makeup and removing and dirt from the skin, pricey for what it is though.
  89. 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.
  90. 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.
  91. 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 he...

  92. 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.
  93. 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
  94. 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
  95. 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
  96. Gentle


    I have sensitive skin and this cleanser is one of my favourites. The scent is so gorgeous!
  97. 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.
  98. Amazing


    Love this so much! Makes my skin feel super clean and fresh!!
  99. 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!
  100. 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
