Gentle cleanser


This cleanser is nice to use in the morning but I find it to be inefficient when removing makeup.
  1. very gentle cleanser

  2. Gentle cleanser


    This cleanser is nice to use in the morning but I find it to be inefficient when removing makeup.
  3. Good cleanser


    Good to use everyday, I use twice a day, morning and night, it leave my face moisture, not dry, after that I use toner and lotion
  4. A little harsh


    I wanted to love this cleanser but found it to be a little too harsh and drying for my oily combination skin. Left my skin feeling parched and tight, especially around the eye area.
  5. Good

    Regi K

    Am such a big fan of Keihl's and this product did not disappoint.
  6. Nice cleanser


    Nice cleanser, removes all my makeup, it is super gentle and scent less which I like, however the only negative it was a little bit too sticky and made my face feel stiff after using it. But overall it’s a nice simple cleanser and great for the price.
  7. Oldie but goodie


    Oldie but goodie, tried and true. Sometimes I choose other new stuff to try, but after a while I always go back to this one. It provides you everything : clean, hydrating skin. I always go back to this one when I need things I know I can trust.
  8. Suitable for dry skin without acne


    I have dry skin with acne. This facial cleanser is very moisturizing, but I always feel that I can’t clean my face. The oil-free version will work better.
  9. Lasts a long time


    Excellent cleanser. I used this at a point when my acne was particularly bad and this definitely helped without adding any extra irritation in to the mix. I had a small tube and it lasted so long.
  10. All time fave


    I have dry / sensitive skin, and was recommended this cleanser by a friend. I have been using for over a year and love it!! A little goes a really long way, literally lasts me months and months before restocking. Most importantly it does not irritate or strip my skin, and has improved my breakouts immensely. Highly recommend!
  11. Didn't clean stubborn pores


    I have really hard to clean out pores - and it's tough for me to find a cleanser that does the job with my dry skin type - sadly this didn't do it :( Otherwise seems like such a loved product!
  12. So gentle!


    Such a good cleanser, doesn't strip the moisture from my face but feels so clean afterwards.
  13. love it


    The smells are good, it's smooth and clean.
  14. Great no fuss cleanser


    I have an oil cleanser that I use as a first cleanse and another for a deeper/exfoliating cleanse. So I wanted something that I could use in the morning or more on a daily basis and I like it! A TINY amount goes a very long way, so I can see this tube lasting an extremely long time. This doesn’t dry my skin out and works very well as a second cleanse. Also fragrance free which I appreciate.
  15. Gentle cleanser


    So gentle on the skin but also works well to remove makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean without drying. I find you only need a small amount, so it lasts a really long time. Will be repurchasing!
  16. all-time favourite cleanser


    excellent for oily skin, however i can imagine it may be slightly drying if you have otherwise. easily removes waterproof mascara and leaves your skin feeling actually clean. you only need the smallest amount so a tube lasts me about 3 months and i cleanse morning and night. will use this product forever.
  17. It’s alright


    Not the best I have used but it’s alright...
    Not for those with very oily skin..but my mum loves it and she has no problem with her skin so she finds it very gentle!
  18. amazing


    amazing for oily skin, cleans skin and doesn't leave it stripped. Smoothes my pores, great to remove makeup aswell
  19. Not for me


    I usually like Kiehl products and really wanted to like this cleanser. I like the little beads in it and it’s a gel cleanser but it dryed my skin out leaving it flaky. I really think this would be more suited to oilier skin types.

  21. Great!


    Such a good cleanser. I have dry skin and this doesn't take away the moisture, it leaves my face feeling clean and fresh.
  22. Really nice cleanser!


    I love this cleanser. It perfectly removes make up, feels soothing on the skin, my face feels fantastic afterwards! Not oily nor drying, doesn't cause breakouts!
  23. nice and easy


    i've been having skin problems for a couple of months and have been struggling to find a good gentle cleanser. I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and really like it... cleanses well and doesn't dry my skin out.
  24. Clean as a whistle


    this product leaves my skin squeeky clean. it feels a little dry afterwards but the moment it's paired with moisturiser its perrffeection. even my partner commented on how clean and glowy my cheeks where and he didnt know i bought this new product
  25. Ultra moisturising perfect for winter


    This is the most hydrating hand cream I’ve ever used. It’s perfect for dry hand in winter. I put on before bed and it’s rich not oily unlike other hand creams.
  26. Great cleanser


    I bought this for my partner as he has really severe blackheads and acne around his neck. He is happy with the results after just a week. Really gets in and cleans out all of the pores.
  27. My desert island cleanser


    Having been a Cetaphil cleanser gal all my life (up until a few years ago), I never really gave cleanser a second thought. Up until that fateful day where I noticed that my post-shower face wasn't entirely makeup-free and that appalled me into action! Enter - Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser.

    I have dry, sensitive skin, prone to rosacea and the occasional mild bout of eczema. This cleanse...

  28. Not stripping


    Even as a person with oily skin, most cleansers strip my skin and it becomes tight if I don't apply my toner and moisturiser straightaway. The first time I've used this I forgot to put on toner right away but my skin doesn't feel uncomfortable but instead extremely soft. My skin feels clean but non drying after using this product. Can't recommend this enough!
  29. Effective


    Have been using this cleanser for 2 months now and it’s a very nice cleanser. I have combination acne prone skin and it’s evened out my skin a lot. A little does go a long way so it’s a good price for the amount of product you get and it’ll take a while to get through. Recommend for people with skin more on the oily side or acne prone like me. My skin feels clean after I use it and very soft.
  30. Simple quick & effective


    A little goes a long way with this product. I have sensitive combination skin so sometimes pure ingredients can still cause a reaction. This cleanser is strong but not harsh & the results are instant. It goes on smooth and leaves my skin clean soft smooth & refreshed. Love it! :-)
  31. the best facial cleanser I have ever tried!!!

    Carol H

    So I purchased this not too long ago because I have been wanting to try out Kiehl's products for a while now. I thought I would start with the ultra facial cleanser and I do not regret purchasing it !!! It instantly soften my skin after my first use and did not dry out my face after. And that was what I was looking for as my previous cleansers dried my face after using it. Highly recommend!! I wou...

  32. Great value cleanser that actually cleans instead of stripping skin


    I bought this about 6 months ago - that's right, it has lasted me for that long! I only use a pea size amount every morning and night, but a little goes a VERY long way. I have combination skin, with an oily T-zone but dry cheeks. I've used it on its own, as well as a second round cleanser after Dermalogica's Pre Cleanse. It works well in both cases, removing makeup residue without stripping my sk...

  33. Good product


    A very basic cleaner that you need for everyday.
  34. Excellent every day cleanser


    Slightly drying if you were to double cleanse with this alone every day, but other than that, this is an amazing every day cleaner which really gets rid of any grime etc. on your face. I have been using for about 5 years and always come back to it - plus is relatively quite cheap.
  35. drying


    this dried my skin a bit. I do have sensitive dry skin to start with but this did make it extra dry. Not sure about this, especially for the price.
  36. Gets rid of make up and deep cleanses


    Love how it foams, gets rid of make up effectively.
    Doesn't over dry my skin.
    Nice packaging and easy to store and travel with.
    One thing i found with this cleanser is that it is best to apply it onto a damp face not dry.
  37. Gentle yet effective cleanser


    I have combination skin prone to dry on my forehead. This gentle cleanser feels gorgeous and creamy yet manages to clean off makeup and grease. It doesn’t have a scent which I love. Great value and good quality.
  38. Good


    Nice simple cleanser that does the job. Gives a good clean.
  39. Favourite Cleanser


    I've been using this for about a month now and i'm impressed with the results. It cleanses my skin thoroughly without stripping moisture. It gets rid of makeup easily and it's super gentle on my combination skin. Will purchase again.
  40. Kiehls Classic


    The only cleanser I use, gets off any and all make up! Have never had any irritations or reactions. I will continue to purchase :)

  42. In love


    I love how fresh it leaves your face, without over drying it. I have oily sensitive skin, a product for my face is hard to find, but glad this one works for me.
  43. Nice cleanser


    I like using this one after removing my makeup as I find it really does clean well but still leaves my skin soft and hydrated.
  44. Squeaky clean cleanser! Non stripping


    A tiny bit of this cleanser goes a long way! Cleanses all the dirt and makeup left on my skin without stripping or creating break outs. A thick consistency which lathers nicely with some water and leaves skin feeling cleansed and refreshed! Have been using for over a month now and have noticed positive changes to my skin (usually dry skin in winter with pore breakouts on my chin)
  45. My go-to cleanser


    This is my all time fave. Relatively inexpensive, lasts ages, gets rid of all my makeup and I dont get that awful tight feeling after like my skin has been stripped that I get from other cleansers. Love it!
  46. Love love love


    This is my HG morning cleanser, and it's so good I've got my sister hooked on it, too! My last tube lasted me almost a year with once to twice a day usage because you seriously only need the tiniest pea size. It lathers beautifully in contact with water but doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or tight. The slightly chemical scent was a little offensive at first, but after a while, I couldn't smell...

  47. really good


    It is very hydrating as it penetrates deeply into the skin and leaves a lovely scent afterwards
  48. I find this one dries my skin out


    I find this one dries my skin out. It always feels good when I use it but after a few days of use, I found it really started to dry my skin.
  49. Great product, little goes a long way.


    Good no fuss cleanser, foams up more than expected which isn't my fave and scent isn't that nice but it works well. My boyfriend is slowly taking over ownership of this one too!
  50. good


    a very gentle foaming cleanser, not drying but feels very clean.
  51. Excellent


    Got a very generous sample of this product a while ago & it is the perfect travel size. Doesn't sting the eye area which is a massive bonus.
  52. The only cleanser to clear my skin!


    LOVE this bad boy. Has kept breakouts under control without drying out my skin. Love Kiehl’s!
  53. Great product


    This is a great product for the price. I have oily combination skin! This is beautiful on the skin and removes all my makeup.Leaves the skin feeling super clean.
  54. A good foaming cleanser


    Having combination skin I tend to stick to non foaming or creamy cleansers, however these aren’t so great at removing makeup. Days when I am wearing makeup, I double cleanse with this cleanser and am confident that all traces of makeup have been washed away without harshly stripping my skin of moisture. Only the smallest amount is needed to cleanse the face and neck. The more you dispense the rich...

  55. Lovely for sensitive skin


    I have dry and sensitive skin. This is a lovely cleanser. I feel like my skin is really clean after using. I leave mine in the shower and cleanse twice a day. I’ve tried many cleansers but this is hands down the best I’ve tried so far! You only need a small amount so I think it will last for a long time. I will definitely purchase again.
  56. Positive


    Love the way my face feels so lovely and smooth after using this product with no dry spots
  57. Amazing for sensitive skin


    Absolutely fell in love with this cleaner, it cleanses makeup and oil thoroughly (I use the double cleanse method) but isn’t drying or stripping at all. Leaves my skin feeling hydrated enough that I don’t find myself rushing to apply toner, it’s a great product!
  58. Smooth and clear for sensitive skin!


    My skin has recently become quite sensitive, and this cleanser is one of the few that doesn't irritate it. I've found that since using this product, my skin is smoother and I have less breakouts.
    It's a big bottle and you only have to use a small amount, so it lasts ages. It lathers really nicely and is easy to apply, always leaves my skin feeling soft and clean without feeling dried out. W...

    I have combination skin and have used many cleansers which leave my face feeling dry and itchy from being stripped of all its oils. I have been using this cleanser for the past couple of months after using Dermalogica’s Pre Cleanse. My skin is left feeling clean and soft, but not at all dried out. I took one star off because sometimes I still have some residual waterproof mascara, but it is a very...

  62. Worth it if you are oily

    Tea Sommelier

    Having been a fan of the Clearly Corrective™ Purifying Foaming Cleanser from Kiehl's, I didn't expect the Ultra Facial Cleanser to be so strong. I am probably biased as I have sensitive, dermatitis prone skin and I don't wear cosmetics but it felt too harsh and drying after cleansing. The scentless, gel consistency of this cleanser, means you only need a small squeeze of this product on damp skin ...

  63. The best


    I only bought this saturday and I am so in love I can not believe it. I have been playing around with cleansers for years. I have sensitive skin and I love to wear makeup. So many cleansers that claim to be gentle are either not strong enough that they don't actually clean my face or they dry out my skin and leave red blotches. This cleanser is thick, takes off everything and hydrates.
  64. great for the price


    This is a great everyday cleanser. I usually use this as a second cleanse or alone when I am not wearing a lot of makeup. I found my skin feels nice and clean without being dried out. Both the travel size and full size last a long time so it is a great value for the price. I will continue to purchase this.
  65. Lovely gentle cleanser


    I've found this to be a lovely, gentle cleanser that doesn't dry out my sensitive skin, but is effective enough to remove a full face of makeup. A little bit goes a long way, and I'll definitely be repurchasing.
  66. Great simple cleanser that just works


    I find this cleanser to be one that I continuously go to as a daily wash. It washes my skin to feel super fresh and clean without any tightness. I find that this cleanser is so good because it just does what it’s supposed to without trying to combat age or acne or any of those things and as a result just lets your skin perform at its best and take care of itself
  67. Quite nice


    I didn't mind this product however it does strip my skin. I would recommend it to remove makeup and to leave a real clean feeling on the skin. I have sensitive skin so I prefer to stick to more gentle cream cleansers
  68. Great Everyday Cleanser for Combo Skin


    I started using this and my skin has changed, I’ve been searching for a cleanser like this for years. I find that every cleanser I do get leaves my skin dry and when I stretch my mouth it feels like my skin is cracking, but this is not the case. Perfect for all skin types especially sensitive, like me!
  69. Caused irritation


    When I used this cleanser it felt really nice, but when I woke up the next day my whole face was sore and flaky! It might work for some people but was clearly way too strong for my skin, even though it says suitable for all skin types.
  70. Good


    This is a good cleanser that feels awesome
  71. Great daily cleanser


    Perfect daily cleanser for any skin type. I have used for years and doesn't overly dry and cleans face well.
  72. Quite nice


    This is a really nice, mild cleanser however you will need to exfoliate separately. While this does remove most of my make up, I sometimes find I have to do a double-cleanse. Not my favourite product from Kiehls
  73. Perfect Cleanser


    Does the job. No messing about. No scent, removes makeup perfectly, feels fresh, clean and hassle free after use. Great for people with sensitive skin who don't enjoy overly smelly products. Goes well with the ultra facial moisturiser.
  74. Holy grail


    Ive struggled to find a cleanser that doesnt dry out my face and actually feels like it does something. Just found my holy grail product. Love that it is thick and lathers quickly
  75. Holy moly


    I started using this and my skin has changed, I’ve been searching for a cleanser like this for years. I find that every cleanser I do get leaves my skin dry and when I stretch my mouth it feels like my skin is cracking, but this is not the case. Perfect for all skin types especially sensitive, like me!
  76. A winner


    My absolute go to cleanser. Gently takes makeup off and doesn't dry out. Great price too. Ticks all the boxes!
  77. Best cleanser EVER


    I think I have finally found my holy grail cleanser! I have been searching for 15 years and spent more money than I want to think about and it’s been there right under my nose all along. It’s far cheaper than many others I’ve tried but yet so much better! You only need the smallest amount so the bottle lasts ages but it does such an amazing job of cleansing my face. It dissolves all of my makeup c...

  78. Love this clenser


    This is the first time I’ve used this and my skin feels very clean afterward. Removes all make up no drama.
    I have quite dry skin so the only thing I would say is that after I’ve clensed my skin needs s toner and moisturiser right away.
    My skin hasn’t looked cleaner and fresher !
  79. Great clenser


    This cleanser is really good value for money - it makes my skin feel really clean and has a nice texture to it when i put it on. I love that it foams up and gets all my makeup off in once go.
  80. average


    I found nothing special about this cleaner. there's so many good cleansers available at the moment (skinstitut, dermalogica) that I would't purchase this one after using the sample
  81. Not for sensitive skin


    I was excited to try this cleanser as I have heard really good things about Kiehl's products.
    The packaging is sleek and simple, an easy squeezy tube which is great for travel. The consistency and texture of the cleanser is really nice and there is a slight fragrance which isn't overpowering. However after a week of use my skin started getting very dry and itchy. I also broke out all over my...

  82. Meh


    It was an okay cleanser, didn't do a whole lot. I had to stop using it though because my texture was getting worse.
  83. Gentle but Effective


    I only use Kiehl's facial cleansers. This Ultra Facial Cleanser is very gentle and reminds me a lot of the Calendula cleanser in texture and appearance. I went with this one because I wanted something that wasn't as exfoliating but still effective enough to give me a good deep clean, after using the Rare Earth cleanser for the past 3 months. I found it with this. Recommended!
  84. Ok!


    I have combination skin (dry on cheeks, oily on T-zone); i used a sample pack of this product but i didn't have any particular feelings for it - i don't love or hate it, just one of those products you can live without! I do like its gel like texture though, it feels good when you apply the cleanser on the skin.
  85. Great


    A great cleanser. I use this when my skin needs something a bit more thorough
  86. Best cleanser for combination skin!


    I tried a sample of this cleanser a while back and I ended up buying 2 bottles, it's perfect for combo skin because it removes all the oil without making your skin feel squeaky or tight. It's a pretty thick gel so a little goes a long way, so you have to make sure your face and hands are wet when you apply it, otherwise it'll take some effort to rinse it off, but on the plus side, you get a lot of...

  87. The best cleanser ever


    Honestly so happy to have finally found a cleanser that doesn’t feel like it’s stripping my skin of all it’s hydration. It leaves my skin so supple and soft and it just feels beautiful as you lather it up. A little goes a long way and it lasts ages for the price. Love this stuff.
  88. Great!


    This is a gentle and effective cleanser that lasts forever. I use it for my morning cleanse or second cleanse in the evening. Sometimes simple is best.
  89. Love this product


    Havent tried this brand before but really happy with this cleanser. You only need a very small amount as it lathers up a lot. Easy to use and great clean skin
  90. Great for removing makeup!


    I have fairly even, clear skin so I don’t need too much fuss. This wash is light, non-scented and removes makeup like a dream without leaving my skin dry or tight. The price is reasonable and a little really goes along way. I think I’ll be sticking to it. Though I do wish it had a little scent.
  91. Nice and creamy


    Creamy facial cleanser that removes makeup without irritating my face
  92. Value for Money


    After running out of my skinstitut cleanser I decided to try other products on the market to combat my acne prone skin. I received some samples from Kiehl's, the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foam, Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser, the Ultra Facial Cleanser. In roughly a week I noticed a complete reduction in my acne, and have since repurchased the Ultra Facial Cleanser. The product is quite thick so only the...

  95. Good simple cleanser


    Not a fancy cleanser that claims to do everything but does the job.
    No scent, removes makeup, good for sensitive or acne prone skin and does not leave the skin squeaky clean dry afterwards.
    Been using the product for years, i sometimes try out other cleansers but always seem to come back to this one.
  96. Great face cleanser!


    This is such a great face cleanser for my dry acne-prone skin! I use it regularly and a little goes a long way! I highly recommend it and this is my second time purchasing it.
  97. HG Cleanser


    I always go back to this old faithful cleanser. Removes all makeup without leaving the skin feeling dry and parched. It's awesome for settling redness and leaves my skin feeling smooth. The tube lasts for ages and both me and my partner use it. Winner.
  98. Great skincare product for sensitive skin!

    Allysya via kiehls.com.au

    I have been using this cleanser for a year and I must say it suits my sensitive skin. usually use this product to double cleanse my face. I have been using it together after using Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Botanical Oil and it leaves my skin feeling amazing and clean. I used to break out a lot, and this product has calmed my skin and reduced my breakouts.
  99. HG status: Been using this cleanser for 3 years!

    aleczzzander via kiehls.com.au

    This is my go-to cleanser, and I haven't stopped using it since I started 3 years ago. It's the only cleanser I've used that takes off EVERYTHING - makeup, oil, dirt, grime etc, plus my skin never feels tight afterward. My cotton pad is always completely clear when I use toner too. I've tried practically every other cleanser on the market, and nothing will ever compare to this!
  100. Gentle and soothing

    Tanya59 via kiehls.com.au

    I was given some sample pots as a gift and after a week of using them decided to buy some full size products and Ultra Facial Cleanser was one of them it is soothing and gentle leaving my face clean and soft with no tightness at all. I am 59 and have always had oily skin although it is less so now I am older . I would recommend this product to all ages.
