Most Helpful Positive
I have acne prone, dry and sensitive skin and this cleanser didn’t irritate my skin. I use it in the morning before applying makeup and in the evening. So far so good. Definitely recommend for sensitive skin.

It smells like a punch in the face
Look the product is great, it really removes makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated. However it actually smells like tequila so if you’ve had a rough time in your early 20s like I did, then you may feel victimised.

I was using this for a while and while it works well I think cleansing milk works much betterI was using this for a while and while it works well I think cleansing milk works much better.
Power Fragrance!When first applying this cream cleanser the fragrance hits you, and tbh, it;'s just way too much. If you are a migraine sufferer or pregnant, this is not for you! The product works well and my skin felt fresh and bright after washing, but the fragrance is a big downside for me. Once washed off, the fragrance is pretty and not overpowering and my skin wasn't tight.
Great cleanser to useI like how creamy this cleanser is and how it does not strip moisture out of my skin when I use it. I would love to give it 5 stars but the only thing that holds me back is the smell of Lavender which can be a bit sometimes.
Finally found a cleanser that calmed my eczemaI really didn't like this cream cleanser at first because I wasn't used to the fact that it doesn't foam or lather (duh cream cleanser), but I got used to it after a few uses. It has a really nice scent that calms you while you're washing your face. It's great that it also removes the dead that has formed on top of my eczema without drying it as well (the clay maybe?). Would recommend! Will not travel anywhere without a tube of this amazing stuff.
Gentle and barrier protective. Perfect for makeup removalThis is a very no frills cream cleanser. It works for pretty well all skin types, and even helped to balance out my combination skin a bit. It did not help with congestion, but is a perfectly gentle makeup remover or first step to double cleansing. It can be removed with just cotton pads if you're feel especially lazy but still need to remove makeup after a long day.
I really enjoyed the chamomile and clay scent, but the boyfriend thought it smelt a bit weird, so it's not for everyone.
This would be suitable for sensitive skin, or even a teenager just getting into skincare! It doesn't disrupt your skin barrier at all, so it's very gentle. Leaves skin feeling soft and clean.
lovely and refreshingA very nice, creamy cleanser, that is easy to use, it feels nice on the skin as you massage it in, and it rinses off beautifully with a warm flannel. Leaves the skin feeling clean, soft, refreshed and purified.
Not in loveI purchased this due to rave reviews, but I just can't love it. I don't know if it's the overpowering fragrance or the thick cream texture that I find difficult to use, but it's a no-go for me.
gentleNice creamy cleanser that's very gentle on the skin.
The product works wellLow price, good product.
creamy on the skinI like how this feels creamy on the skin. I use it after removing makeup because I find it quite gentle and calming
Very gentleThis cleanser is very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin, especially that I have acne problems, my pimples usually got irritated easily. But with this, it's not. My face feels so smooth after and the smell is very lovely.
lovelythis feels lovely on the skin and because it's a cream, it feels quite gentle on the skin
Perfect cream cleanserThis cream cleanser is the perfect balance between getting a good clean and also not drying the skin out. I feel like my skin is left fresh and moisturised.
Works well to remove dirt & makeup, sensitive on skinPerfect for removing light makeup at the end of the day.
I was recommended to by the Aesop team to use on the skin before entering the shower then wash off in the shower.
Great - for dry skinIf you have dry skin, this cleanser will work extremely well for you. It's not the sort of cleanser if you want to get rid of all the dirt on your face, but if you're looking for a gentle cleanser that leaves your skin feeling moisturised, try this out! I'm a little oilier so wouldn't use again, but my sister who's dryer absolutely loves it.
Creamy and hydrating!I hesitantly purchased this cream cleanser in hopes that it would soothe my relatively dry skin. I was pleasantly surprised that it not only cleansed my skin, but also added back some hydration. I purchased this product again, and although I am in the pursuit of amping up my skin care regimen, I will certainly be repurchasing this item.
A little bit thick but moisturisingA little bit thick but moisturising cream suitable for all skin types, probably ideal for dry skin or during winter as it can almost be used as an overnight face mask. A little bit is all you need! Tube is handy for travel
a great face scrub!This is a great face scrub! Not overly fond of the scent on this Aesop product but it works great.

GoodThis is the first aesop product I've bought and I love it.. My face feels really clean and fresh after this.. Using it at the minute for a pamper cleanse until I've gone through some of my other cleansers first.. Brilliant product would recommend
nicesome people complain about the smell but i personally love it, smells like my grandmas house in Christmas
Love this gentle productI have always changed between different cleansers because I have never loved any, but I am up to my 5th tube of this now. I have sensitive skin and prone to a few breakouts but this doesn’t irritate my skin at all it’s so gentle and calming and removes makeup. Highly recommend
Its okNot my fave but removes dirt and grime.
great for sensitive skin, otherwise underwhelmingi tried this around a year ago and found it useless as a cleanser. i felt that it made no difference to my oily skin and had to follow up with a stronger product. however, last year i started a medication that made my skin very sensitive. everything i used caused my skin to break out in a red rash, except for this cleanser. this cleanser may be too gentle for normal/oily skin but now i'm on board.

greatThis is a very soft and gentle cleanser that does a really great job of cleansing your face without stripping it of moisture. I like that it's not foamy, and it's heavier than a cleansing milk with the same level of softness. Your face will feel soft and clean afterwards with no residue. I followed with their Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Mask and the soft lavender scent from the cleanser goes really well with the chamomile.

Amazing cleanserI used to hate cleansers. I found them drying and harsh. This is amazing. It's perfect for skin that tends to the dry side, a little goes a long way, my skin feels amazing during and after cleansing and it's gentle but effective. Definitely recommend.
Feels wonderfulI have combination skin (oily, dry and sensitive) and am prone to breakouts if I use a product that doesn't agree with me. This cleanser is great, I've purchased it three times. It works hard without stripping oils, and feels quite nourishing. I love the verdant, woody scent.
Moisturising and gentleI was given this as a gift from my mum, and I really love the creaminess of it. It is gentle and not stripping - which I found the other gel Aesop cleansers to be. I have combination skin and it is still enough to remove surface oil and make-up daily. The only negative would have to be the packaging, as when you get near the end the metal can split, and I feel like you can't really get all of it out.
Love the cleanser HATE the packagingI adore AESOp and am generally happy with all their products. This cleanser is so gentle and light, and I loved it. However, I can't stand the packaging.. this might seem silly. But I always feel as if I end up wasting quite a bit of product. I've since switched to a different cleanser.
GREAT CLEANSERThis is the first aesop product I've bought and I love it.. My face feels really clean and fresh after this.. Using it at the minute for a pamper cleanse until I've gone through some of my other cleansers first.. Brilliant product would recommend
Gentle and nourishing for sensitive skinThis is a great gentle cleanser, especially for dry and sensitive skin during the winter months.
I use this cleanser year-round, however, the only drawback to it is that it doesn't remove makeup very well. (Hence, 4 stars instead of 5). I cleanse my face with it to start, then use coconut oil to remove the rest of my makeup.
Would definitely buy againA lovely gentle cleanser with a beautiful soothing smell. I have normal/dry skin, and sometimes my skin can feel very tight after cleansing; for the most part, this cleanser does not cause that feeling at all and generally makes it feel quite hydrated after cleansing -- unless I am having a really bad skin week. Compared to most cleansers, I would say it's extremely gentle.
It does a very good job at taking off any makeup on your skin, but not so great at mascara. And if you wear waterproof mascara -- forget it. You will need a separate eye-makeup remover.
It's definitely something I will repurchase, as sometimes even the most gentle foaming cleaners are too drying for my skin, so a nice gentle cream like this is a must-have alternative.
Overpowering SmellThe cleanser wasn't anything really special especially for the price you pay. I use quite heavy foundation (Estee Lauder DW) and use make up remover before using this cleanser. It took off the rest of my makeup and made my skin feel clean.
Did not irritate my sensitive skin
The strong smell. The first thing I noticed when I first used this is the strong smell, which nearly made me stop using it. I try not to breathe too deeply every time I use it. I'm hoping I'll get used to the smell.
A great cleanserThis cleanser is packed with goods and leaves the skin clean and soft. I have skin that was getting slightly dry, and this product helped bring back the softness. I sometimes leave the cleanser on my face for 5 mins as a mini mask to give more time for the product to absorb and nourish my skin. The only thing is it lasted me about 6 weeks (using night & day). A great product nonetheless!
Gently yet powerfulI have only been using this cleaner in the past 4 - 6 months over the winter as my skin was feeling quite dehydrated.
I had already used some samples recommended by the Myers consultant, which weren't quite fitting my skin concerns (feeling dry, yet I suffer blackheads on the nose and chin and occasional breakouts). Stopped by an actual Aesop store and the girl was fantastic! Gave me a bunch of samples (Purifying cream cleanser, B & Tea balancing toner, Parsley Seed serum) all of which i purchased later.
The cleanser is gently and soothing, has a fresh yet subtle perfume and yet removes makeup (would recommend a double cleanse for makeup removal or I use a Micellar water and then cleanse and tone as normal).
I now use the cream cleanser, toner and serum (mentioned above) which are all light enough for summer (use sunscreen on top for protection). At night time I always apply another facial oil or moisturiser on top of the Parsley Seed Serum.
The tube should last 4-5 months and can also be mixed with their Tea Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant for a deeper, more mechanical exfoliating cleanse as well.
Wheat free and worksLove love this cleanser, I sometimes leave it on for 5 min as a mini masque. Great for traveling as don't always need water to rince off. Non drying and great for mature skin. Also, it has no wheat biproducts in it so, for me , no allergic reactions. yes it smells great too.
Great cleanserThe Aesop Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser is a great cleanser!
It removes grime and makeup but does not dry out my skin or irritate it. Also, it smells really good - all natural and earthy. 5 stars!
- I'm so glad that Aesop repackaged this product. So much easier to use in a tube. A light, calming, creamy cleanser for sensitive, dry skin types. Would definitely recommend this natural product to those looking for a gentle cleanser that doesn't irritate skin. Great pick-me-up for a morning cleanse, though you can use it for both AM and PM cleansing. Removes make-up efficiently, leaving your complexion clean and clear of the days debris. Skin feels soft and ready for the next step in skincare. Pleasant scent with Lavender, Chamomile and Rosemary. Nice :)
