Gentle and cleanes the skin beautifully. Once you get past the what I call ?herbal smell (which i dont mind) it melts away. Noticed reeducation of redness and pore visibility within the 1st week. Would purchase again. Very happy camper

Gentle and effective
This is a gentle cleanser to use after you’ve removed your makeup. I’ve always like the idea of a double cleanse and this has made it easy to do without feeling like I’m stripping my face. It’s a very strong pungent smell but didn’t bother me too much. It’s a fairly runny product and it doesn’t lather at all. Not sure if my skin has noticed any improvement but I do like how it makes my skin feel.
NiceNice and gentle on the skin but still cleanses the skin well. Smell isnt amazing but it doesnt bother me.... kind of smells like herbs
InterestingI enjoyed using this. I felt it refined my pores without leaving my skin right

Love it!I didn't think that a cleanser could be so effective while gentle. It's been the only thing so far that really reduces my redness too as well as minimising pore visibility. As others have said, doesn't remove make up, does smell a little funny, but neither of those are a massive issue for me. I'm on my third tube of this now, about to purchase my fourth.
Skin Feels SO CleanI have enjoyed using products from DECIEM's other brands i.e. The Ordinary and Hylamide. I had always wanted to try NIOD's products but most of them are out of my price range. So I was really excited when I saw I could get this for only $34!
I was a bit nervous because I had read some of the poor reviews but my experience was great.
On NIOD's website there is really detailed information about this product, how it works and how to use it - it is worthwhile reading if you are thinking of buying this product!
I followed their instructions and only used it every second day. I have combination skin and this leaves the skin feeling amazingly clean and smooth.
Would particularly reach for this if my skin was feeling oily or greasy, because it just washes that all away.
Nothing specialAs a huge fan of The Ordinary, I purchased this product prior to their release of a cleanser. I hate to say that I'm not impressed with it at all. It's not terrible, just not great. As stated in the description, it doesn't remove make up so keep that in mind. It also smells like you're rubbing Vegemite on your face!
Great for oily skinMy skin is very oily and this deep cleaning cleanser is great for my skin. I've used it as a mini mask for 5 minutes and as a classic cleanser and it leaves my skin looking smooth and my pores refined. Abit pricey but it is worth it if you have the extra coins.
Must Have For Oily SkinThis is a must have if you have oily to combination skin.
It does an amazing job at deep cleaning the skin and removing oils.
I’ve also noticed a reduction in pore size.
I wouldn’t recommend it for dry skin.
The smell is a little strange, but you get use to it.
very gentleI bought this during the 'black friday' sale period because normally NIOD products are out of my price range, and I'm actually really happy with it. I use this in the shower, after a makeup remove step (usually an oil cleanse) and it's 100% non-irritating and feels a bit more nourishing and cleansing than my usual one-step gentle cleanse, which is to only use LRP dermocleanser and rinse or wipe off with a cotton pad. Moisturising too.
GreatLeaves your skin literally squeaky clean without drying out! The Niod magic is at it again!! Do yourself a favour-treat yourself to this amazing vacuum cleaner for your face
Good cleanser but too unpleasant to useI love NIOD and The Ordinary products. This is unfortunately my least favourite from the NIOD range.
I used this at a time when my skin was suffering from a hormonal break out. It is a decent cleanser and did help somewhat with clearing my skin up. It's good, not mind-blowing, but good.
However, I simply found it too unpleasant to use. Firstly, due to its runny consistency, a tube is entirely the wrong packaging for it - it can get messy if you aren't careful. Secondly, it smells horrendous. Thirdly, if you get it in your eyes or mouth, watch out - it is nasty stuff. I relegated it to only being used in the shower because it was just too noxious!
Overall, I just can't recommend something that is so unpleasant to use. I strongly recommend using the NIOD Flavanone Mud instead as a regular mask and, say, The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser or any other daily cleanser. The NIOD Flavanone Mud is incredible (still stinky but not as bad as the Sankrit Saponins) and gives much better results.
It’s okMy partner bought a few of this and she loves it.
I had try it and it’s ok. It’s more like a mask not a cleanser, though it is a cleanser.
A simple cleanseI feel this is good for morning cleanse when there is no make-up on the face as it is really thin. It does not feel it cleans deep enough at the end of the day with make-up. Generally quite nice.
Excellent productI have normal to dry skin. This has worked really well for me and my skin's condition has improved a lot. Its not drying at all, and washes of really clean. The only things I dislike about this product is that it doesn't remove make up and the packaging is poorly designed, otherwise amazing.
One of my favouriteI have a combination skin. This doesn’t clog pores and dry my skin. My skin is loving this product, as it plump it and give a nice refreshing feeling. I bought 3 extra to stock, so won’t run out. A little goes along way.
great stuffI love this product. Although it is in a weird spot on the cleanser spectrum, because it does not remove your makeup, it's worth the purchase. Take off your makeup, then apply this (you can even leave it for 10 min as a mask, but put some heavy moisturiser after because it is a little drying as a mask), and your skin feels like it's gone through a detox.
Great detoxer for oily skin!I have oily skin so this product works with my skin well. Not sure I would recommend for drier skin types. It’s a great refresher or detoxer for your skin every few nights in a week, just to strip everything back. Definetly need to use makeup remover or cleansing balm prior. This product will do about as much as you can expect from a good cleanser (definetly no wonder worker).
Inconsistent product (completely different 2nd time round)When I first read reviews on this product after ordering the first time I was confused about what people meant when they said the packaging was inappropriate and that the felt it didn't give the deep clean they had hoped. The first time I bought this cleanser I found it amazing, consistency was somewhere between face mask and cleanser, I felt it gave a really deep clean and helped clear up minor hormonal breakouts. I liked it enough to repurchase it, however this time the product is COMPLETELY different, it's soo much runnier, difficult to keep in the tube and doesn't spread/ sit as well on my skin and it feels less effective as a result. It is still somewhat effective in giving a deep clean, but I'm not sure I'd purchase again. I'd say definitely not worth the price for the tube I have now, and it's a bit concerning/ weird that it feels like a completely different product based on two different tubes.
Leaves skin feeling super clean, however caused breakoutsI have oily combination skin with acne in t zones and chin. I hoped this product would deep clean and balance my problem areas.
I really liked that this product was really nice to use with a nice smell and and texture, it leaves skin with a really surprising super clean feeling and very smooth. After maybe 3 uses however I noticed large deep pimples all over my cheeks which I don't usually get, I was hoping it was a skin purge situation however they were ongoing and settled after I stopped using it.
it seemed like a lovely product however not for my skin type
My holy grail cleanserI have normal to dry skin that can be sensitive. I adore this cleanser and wont be without it. First step is to do a quick pre-cleanse to remove make-up and SPF. Then the second step is to use Sanskrit Saponins for a gorgeous, creamy, deep second cleanse. This leaves my skin clean and glowing and makes a visible difference to my pore size. In the morning my skin is bright and feels healthy. I use it several times a week (definitely not every night).
Nothing to get excited aboutI was sort of excited about this brown goo- but it was a let-down.
My skin is on the dry side, but it does appreciate a decent and thorough clean every so often. This goo did that.
What has made me rate this product so low is a host of things I just can't stand about the product. For a start, the unnecessary verbiage emblazoned upon the box made me cringe. Secondly, the metal tube isn't an appropriate container for the goo- any pressure on the tube makes it leak, and the goo is brown and stains grouting and marble. Thirdly, I can't be bothered using it at night due to it now having a sticky, messy cap.
And lastly, do not get this stuff in your mouth. It doesn't taste well at all.
A bit disappointedWas expecting crazy results from this cleanser but haven't really noticed a difference in my skin since I started using. Probably won't repurchase.
Nice gentle cleanI like this product for it's gentle clean. The smell is a bit strange but it goes away after you wash the product off. It's a nice cleanser and it seems to control my oil well but I don't think it's anything too special for the price.
Excellent deep cleanser - not worth the priceThere really is no other product similar to this. I got the larger 180mL size during the Deciem Black Friday sale last year for around AUD$18. I am really loving it, but no way in hell would I fork out $75 for that amount. No cleanser is worth that, no matter how nice it makes your skin feel - save your money for products you actually leave on the skin.
I use this twice a week as a nighttime cleanser, but only on days where I haven't worn makeup. It doesn't effectively remove makeup, and when I've tried it as the second cleanse after my oil cleanser, it doesn't even remove all of the oil. I use about a teaspoon's worth and let it dry on like a mask for 5-10 minutes, then remove by thoroughly massaging it off with a wet flannel. OK, the smell: To me it smells overwhelmingly like natural peanut butter. Not bad, just... very weird. The smell only lasts as long as it's on your skin though. It makes my skin feel incredibly soft and clean, like the pores have been completely cleansed out, yet it's not stripping in any way. And I definitely notice that any serums I apply afterwards soak in really quickly without any sticky feeling. I love this stuff and would give it 5 stars except for the ridiculous price.
Love!I use this cleanser as recommended - every other day in the AM or PM. I didn't think it was possible but right after washing my face with this cleanser my pores look almost non existent. The smell's kind of strange but bearable and I wish the packaging was better - you have to be careful when squeezing out the product or the tube will crack. Other than that I love this product.
I (think) I like it!This is a super gentle cleanser - I've been using this once at night as a second cleanse for the past month and have definitely seen that my skin is smoother. I haven't been getting any large pimples as I may have before, but still have smaller ones. It's a really different texture and barely lathers so I'm still trying to get the hang of it! Will keep using but am not sure if I'll repurchase yet...
Love thisThis is a beautiful cleanser. Smell takes a little bit of getting used to. I use mine often as a mask, especially good on my oily nose and t zone. Leaves your skin soft and smooth. Wish I could use it everyday
Excellent deep cleanserThis face cleanser was made for me! It is fantastic for combination skins and people who feel like they need a proper deep cleanse. I love that it smells earthy and doesn't have any added ingredients in an attempt to add fragrance (like the wretched citrus oils that are popping up everywhere). Another awesome product from NIOD!
not sureI'm a fan of the Niod range but with the hype of this cleanser, I had to get one. Unfortunately its not as effective as expected. Its great that its gentle and soap free but it doesn't clean as well. I have pretty oily skin so that could be a factor. Try if you have dry skin. Its very gentle and soothing for sure.
AMAZINGHighly recommend this product if you have oily/congested skin with large pores. It is absolutely amazing.
New Favourite ProductI have used other deciem products before but with this I bought it based on other reviews and have noticed a ridiculously significant change in my skin. I have had a reduction of redness, healing of existing pimple marks (where I admit I picked) and an overall evenness to my skin. My skin really feels a lot smoother and looks clearer. The smell is earthy and non fragranced which is what you want in skin care. It's also very nice to apply to my skin with no negative reactions for my combination sensitive skin. I will definitely be purchasing this again.
FavouriteI have a normal, oily skin. Oily on t-zone. With all the Niod products this is my favourite. My oilyness in tzone has lessen, didn’t dry my skin with this product either. It’s so mild but leaves my skin really clean. When using it, i massage on my face until it dry and i leave it on my skin for about 5 mins. Love the smell, not over powering. With all the products i used, this is my holy grail. 90ml will last you long. You only need little and goes long way. Will definitely buy again.
Amazing!!I've started using the Low viscosity cleaning ester to remove makeup then cleanse with the Saponins cleanser. I then spray with Dimutase Saccharide mist follwed with at night with CAIS and MMHC the finally Hydration Vaccine. My skins feels supple and fresh every morning. I also use the mist to freshen and hydrate during day and over makeup. It plump and sets makeup. I can't fault the Niod products they are all unique and amazing on my very sensitive dehydrated skin in my early 40's.
Impressive CleanserLove, love, love this cleanser! My skin was often prone to breakouts (yes even at 46 years of age!) and quite often my skin looked dull. I saw a beauty segment on the Niod range and thought why not I will give this one a go. And wow I'm so impressed. I use it every second day as suggested and you can feel it actually deep cleaning your skin. It smooths my skin and gives it a brightness like nothing else I've used and it has pretty much stopped the breakouts.
I will now be looking into the rest of the range and trying more of it.
Highly recommendedEven after a few days use I can't help but be impressed with NIOD Sanskrit Saponins facial cleanser. My skin is rather sensitive and I often struggle to find facial cleansers that don't result in dryness, tightness or redness. Cleansers that are scented also tend to adversely affect my skin, resulting in redness or even a rash. I also struggle to find products that act effectively on my skin, which tends to the oily side without dying it out completely. NIOD Sanskrit Saponins is scent neutral and non-greasy or oily to the touch. It is light yet clearly deep-acting for even after a few days use, my skin has begun to looks brighter and more alive, and it feels softer and smoother to touch. There is no residual dryness or oiliness. This product works best in conjunction with NIOD Surface Hydration Vaccine but also works well with other moisturisers from my experience with it.
Works well and smells great tooI recently switched to this from my normal facial cleanser and I've been pleasantly surprised by the results. The texture isn't exactly what I was expecting and I had a bit of trouble getting it to lather up well at first, but once I got used to it I haven't had any problems. It definitely smells a bit chocolatey, which doesn't hurt, and cleans my skin just as well, if not better than any other cleanser I've used. I usually have quite oily skin, but using this seems to clear that up well without making my skin feel dry at all, so I can't really say anything bad about it.

Great cleanser, smells amazingI haven't regularly used a cleanser before, but I don't forget to use this one because it smells really good (like chocolate/cocoa in my opinion). It leaves my skin feeling really good afterwards. I think it has helped me feel less oily during the day.
The only thing I don't like about this cleanser is that the packaging is hard to use in the shower because of the screw top lid, it's hard to use when my hands are wet and I feel like I'm losing product.
Obsessed!I absolutely love this cleanser! The earthy, almost salty, aroma took a little getting used to but I hardly notice it now. As directed by NIOD this product isn't designed to remove makeup so I will always remove makeup first with oil (typically sweet almond oil or roseship), wash that off, and then go in with this cleanser to actually cleanse my skin. My face feels lovely after using it and I have noticed marked improvements in my acne after incorporating this two-step cleansing method to my skincare routine. Will definitely be re-purchasing this product in the larger size next time!
Brilliant productThis product does exactly what it says it's going to do. Deeply cleanse your skin without aggravating it. Hard to describe but skin looks so clear after using it.
