Does the job, but pricey - 30-11-2018 by

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.

Great - 30-11-2018 by

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.

Nice - 29-11-2018 by

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.

Unfortunately not for me - 23-11-2018 by

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!

Okay - 23-11-2018 by

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

Decent - 20-11-2018 by

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.

Great product - but very pricey - 09-11-2018 by

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

Gentle smells good - 07-11-2018 by

Great scent, very gentle on the skin but don't like packaging!

Awesome cleanser - 05-11-2018 by

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.

Does the job - 01-11-2018 by

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

Gentle and effective. - 24-10-2018 by

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.

Gentle Cleanser - 18-10-2018 by

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.

Best cleanser I’ve ever used - 16-10-2018 by

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.

Works wonders - 12-10-2018 by

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.

like! - 04-10-2018 by

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

Good for sensitive skin - 01-10-2018 by

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

Good for combination skin - 01-10-2018 by

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

Gentle - 26-09-2018 by

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

Love it - 24-09-2018 by

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.

Amazing - 05-09-2018 by

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

My skin feels amazing! - 05-09-2018 by

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!

Great cleanser - 05-09-2018 by

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

A gentle cleanser with a lovely scent - 22-08-2018 by

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!

great product - 20-08-2018 by

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.

Lovely and refreshing on my oily skin - 15-08-2018 by

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.

Good for fresh-feeling skin - 31-07-2018 by

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

Fabulous Face Cleanser - 30-07-2018 by

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!

Ok - 26-07-2018 by

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

Great daily cleanser - 25-07-2018 by

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

Really nice - 05-07-2018 by

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.

Nice but not amazing - 22-06-2018 by

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.

Too expensive, would not purchase again - 13-06-2018 by

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.

Simple but amazing - 11-06-2018 by

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.

Normal - 01-06-2018 by

Nice neutral cleanser that makes me feel fresh after i use it!

Left feeling fabulous - 23-05-2018 by

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

Fresh faced! - 28-01-2018 by

Makes my face feel smooth and fresh after using and gets my makeup off very easily!

10/10 face cleanser - 12-09-2017 by

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!

Lives up to its name! - 29-06-2017 by

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.

MY HOLY GRAIL FACE WASH - 02-04-2016 by

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)


Aesop is amazing! - 12-06-2015 by

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!

Love it! - 09-07-2014 by

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.

Look forward to washing my face! - 04-04-2014 by

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 :)

Great for frequent use - 17-02-2014 by

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.

Great product - 20-08-2013 by

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

Holy Grail of cleansers! - 17-08-2012 by

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.

- 15-03-2011 by

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!

- 18-11-2010 by

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 ♥♥

- 14-06-2010 by

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.

- 16-07-2009 by

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.

- 13-02-2009 by

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.

- 03-11-2008 by

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.

- 17-10-2008 by

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!

- 15-07-2008 by

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)

- 07-07-2008 by

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.

- 07-07-2008 by

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.

- 01-07-2008 by

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.
