Anita

Been using this for years. I have normal to dry skin and use it in the morning or for my second cleanse at night (if wearing sunscreen/makeup). The texture of the product is beautiful and leaves my skin feeling super clean without feeling tight/dry.

Most Helpful Criticism

Strong skin

skincareobsessed

the string scent of some of aesop's products makes me avoid using them. The parsley seed range is quite strong, however i do find this cleaner nice to use and effective, but the smell puts me off.
  1. Not a Fan

    CJ

    verified purchaser
    I love Aesop products, I have used the face moisturiser for months and love it, in need of a new cleanser I thought I would purchase and try there cleaner after reading a few reviews, BIG mistake whilst it cleans my skin nicely it’s the SMELL I was stunned by, no other way to describe it but old dead flowers that have been left to rot in water, it’s disgusting!

    Avoid Avoid
  2. Probably more suited to dry skin

    Cassandra

    Not my favourite everyday cleanser...probably more suited to dry skin. Not sure how well this cleasners or removes make up, either...maybe also better as a second step cleanser.
  3. Good cleanser that doesn't dry out your skin

    Rosie

    I use this cleanser at night as a second cleanser after my oil cleanser, and as my only cleanser in the morning. The balm doesn't dry out your skin the way soap cleansers do and smells nice, even though the scent is quite strong. I would recommend this product if you don't like that squeaky clean feeling of a soap cleanser - this is a very good alternative.
  4. Great cleanser for dry skin

    T

    If you have dry skin this is a holy grail product. It so gentle and hydrating.

  7. Intense Fragrance

    Melissa

    I enjoyed using this sumptuous cream, however it has a very strong smell (may be an issue if you have a hangover in the morning) and for me, it made my skin tight after use. In saying that though, I felt squeaky clean!
  8. Capable of removing a full face of makeup

    Kylie

    I received a sample of this with a recent order and immediately put it to use to remove a full face of makeup. It has a lovely creamy texture and herbaceous scent, and effortlessly removes every last trace of makeup products. A gentle but effective cleanser.
  9. Great Cleanser

    Ashleigh

    I have dry/sensitive skin and do find this quite rich sometimes (it can leave my skin feeling warm depending on what else I've used on it), however I love the scent, texture and experience of cleansing my face with this! Would definitely recommend Aesop always, to everyone.
  10. Love

    Sharni

    Great for when my skin is feeling dull and dry! Very gentle and hydrating
  11. Lovely

    Emmajane

    I received a sample from adore with my order and reallllly enjoyed it. Looking at the ingredients I expected lavender to be the main scent but actually it’s the chamomile that shines. Lovely texture, lovely clean.
  12. Beautiful Scent

    Camilla

    I received this as a trial sample, and would highly recommend. It’s a gentle cleanser and smells beautiful. Great for sensitive skin and cleanses effectively!
  13. Love it!

    Sori

    I use it after removing makeup because I find it quite gentle and calming and I like how this feels creamy on the skin.
  14. good

    nic

    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.
  15. It smells like a punch in the face

    Miss e

    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.
  16. I was using this for a while and while it works well I think cleansing milk works much better

    Freda

    I was using this for a while and while it works well I think cleansing milk works much better.
  17. Power Fragrance!

    Cha

    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.
  18. Great cleanser to use

    Carmen

    I 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.
  19. Finally found a cleanser that calmed my eczema

    Dan

    I 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 tr...

  20. Gentle and barrier protective. Perfect for makeup removal

    caitlin

    This 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...

  21. lovely and refreshing

    Ariane

    A 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.
  22. Not in love

    Rally

    I 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.
  23. gentle

    Vivienne

    Nice creamy cleanser that's very gentle on the skin.
  24. creamy on the skin

    I like how this feels creamy on the skin. I use it after removing makeup because I find it quite gentle and calming
  25. Very gentle

    Esther

    This 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.
  26. lovely

    Alex

    this feels lovely on the skin and because it's a cream, it feels quite gentle on the skin
  27. Perfect cream cleanser

    Shari

    This 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.
  28. Works well to remove dirt & makeup, sensitive on skin

    Maya

    Perfect 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.
  29. Great - for dry skin

    Maddy

    If 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.
  30. Creamy and hydrating!

    Taeylor

    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.
  31. A little bit thick but moisturising

    Jenny

    A 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
  32. a great face scrub!

    Jodie

    This is a great face scrub! Not overly fond of the scent on this Aesop product but it works great.
  33. Great for dry skin!

    If 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! Good for the price.
  34. Good

    Yoshie

    This 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
  35. nice

    Shannon

    some people complain about the smell but i personally love it, smells like my grandmas house in Christmas
  36. Love this gentle product

    Hannah

    I 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
  37. great for sensitive skin, otherwise underwhelming

    ally

    i 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.

    asami

    This 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 r...

  41. Amazing cleanser

    Sophie

    I 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.
  42. Feels wonderful

    Jana

    I 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.
  43. Moisturising and gentle

    Daniella

    I 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 o...

  44. Love the cleanser HATE the packaging

    Brandais

    I 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.
  45. GREAT CLEANSER

    Zhaowei

    This 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
  46. Gentle and nourishing for sensitive skin

    Max

    This 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.
  47. Would definitely buy again

    GW

    A 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 g...

  48. Overpowering Smell

    Jenny

    The 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.

  49. A great cleanser

    Sarah

    This 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!
  50. Gently yet powerful

    Karhys

    I 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 bunc...

  51. Wheat free and works

    Jules

    Love 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.
  52. Great cleanser

    Lil

    The 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!
  53. Anonymous

    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 com...
