Most Helpful Positive

Simple But Effective

SarahS

For someone with extremely sensitive, oily and acne prone skin this product is perfect. I have been using Skinstitut for about 1.5 years and I am obsessed. Keeps breakouts at bay, and removes makeup perfectly. Would highly recommend double cleansing - once to remove makeup/dirt and another to really get in to your skin. Such a great simple cleanser.

Most Helpful Criticism

What’s the hype?

OliviaSkye

I’m really on the fence about this product. I usually use Aspect but decided to change to a recyclable alternative. To be honest, I’m not a fan of the gel. It can’t be lathered. The container also states to only use a pea sized amount but it’s near impossible to squirt that amount out of the bottle without squeezing a 50c piece out. It also takes two applications to get your makeup off and then you still feel like it’s not cleaned your skin entirely.
No breakout or change to skin... just a very meh product. You get what you pay for.

  2. perfect

    can actually feel this cleanser working, makes my skin feel so clean and also great for removing makeup
  3. Best cleanser

    Sof

    This product is amazing for me as I have normal (sometimes combination) skin. I use the cleanser twice a day (morning and night), and always make sure that I take my time and work it into my face gently for at least a minute. I am really impressed with it, and will continue to re-purchase and use.
  4. Holy grail cleanser!

    Jess

    I have been using this for about a year now after searching for a well-priced cleanser that did not leave my skin tight and sensitive! Since using this product I have not looked back! It keeps my pimples at bay and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean without that tight feeling! Highly recommend for someone looking for a cleanser that does its job and value for money!
  5. perfect daily cleanser

    elisefrwrd

    I love using this cleanser as a 2nd cleanse at night. It's gentle but still feels like it gets everything off of my skin
  6. Skinstitut

    Anna

    Lovely foaming cleanser, I use it to remove makeup in double cleanse. Works well at cleaning without drying out
  7. So gentle on sensitive skin

    Cait

    A great cleanser for sensitive skin - leaves you feeling clean and fresh without the tight, dried out feeling some cleaners give you.
  8. Good basic cleanser

    Gen

    This cleanser is very gentle which is great for dry and sensitive skin, but you will definitely need to double cleanse if using this product unless you have nothing on your face. Overall it is a nice basic cleanser.
  9. I like it

    Benji

    I like this product! I use every morning and night and really keeps my skin clear and doesnt dry it out!
  10. Just lovely

    Amie

    I love using this cleanser in the morning, and also has a first cleanse while taking makeup off. Doesn’t over dry my skin.
  11. Perfect every day.

    CK

    I have sensitive skin, and this product is super gentle. I love how clean my skin feels after using this product. I use it morning and night. The bottle lasts me along time.

  14. Perfect Makeup Remover

    leilab

    I have been using this cleanser for a few years now and am yet to find something just as effective for its price. I use this with my Foreo every night to remove my makeup before properly cleansing. I highly recommend this product - it’s super gentle and great for all skin types.
  15. My new favourite cleanser

    Sophie

    My new favourite cleanser! One of the only gentle cleansers that still removes all my make up without causing my skin to become red and irritated. Already repurchased!
  16. Great product but...

    Emma Loves Skincare

    I like this product a lot and it lasts FOREVER! But I do find it a little boring (I don't have sensitive or easily irritated skin) and I prefer a bit more of a scent. I've been trying a few Korean skincare products and have found the cost is better than using this one and their formulas often smell a bit more enticing. For reference my skin is oily/combination and I am 30 years old

  18. Go to cleanser

    Son

    I honestly love this cleanser! It really is so gentle on the skin, so it is perfect for those with sensitive skin. It is a very effective cleanser! I use it morning and night along with other skinstitut products, they really are great products. The product also lasts so long if you use it correctly! Good value for money. Also love that's its Australian made.
  19. Balanced Out My Oily Skin

    Shawnie

    I have struggled with an effective cleanser that cleans but doesnt strip my skin. I already have oily skin so its frustrating when a cleanser undoes all my skins care. This has been my cleanser for a couple years now and I wont be changing anytime soon. Perfect balance of getting any dirt or grime off and keeping my skin balanced.
  20. Best Cleanser!!

    Tahlia

    Only cleanser I've found that does not strip my skin and leave it feeling dry and also doesn't break me out and gets rid of makeup and dirt and only cleanser i can use after extraction facial, nothing really compares!
  21. Too gentle for me

    JD089

    I bought this to give it ago as I purchased all 90% of the Skinstitut range. This cleanser is boring, scent is meh, texture reminds me of dishwashing liquid and it just doesn't do anything for my skin. I definitely recommend this for sensitive skin though.
  22. Great daily cleanser

    Mia

    I use this cleanser most mornings and it’s great. Leaves skin feeling fresh and soft
  23. Gentle yet removes makeup

    Trsja

    This is super gentle on sensitive skin, yet feels like it is cleaning really well (whereas other cleansers can sometimes feel too thin and as though they aren't effective). Removes makeup well, including (non-waterproof) mascara. Another bonus is that it isn't tested on animals, doesn't have added fragrances and is affordable.
  24. gentle and fresh

    t

    gets the job done amazing. my skin feels so fresh after every use
  25. My go to

    Ms Z

    I always repurchase this cleaner it’s my go to I love it and wouldn’t change it.
  26. Gentle and makeup free

    Bridgethb

    I use this every morning as my cleanser and at night to take my makeup off and it’s lovely and gentle but definitely gets the job done. I have acne prone skin and since starting to use skinstitut I now very rarely have any issues with my skin.
  27. so nice!

    I use this cleanser every night to take off my make up, its so gentle & calming. It gets everything off in one wash & it not harmful to my skin.
  30. Faultless

    Cine

    A great every day cleanser. A little goes a long way and not drying. Removes most of my makeup leaving me with a fresh face
  31. One of the Best Cleansers

    Jesse

    This cleanser is amazing in terms of both scent and effectiveness. The cleanser effectively removes all dirt and impurities but still leaves my skin feeling hydrated without feeling stripped. The cleanser is also packed with vitamins which I really enjoy.
  32. holy grail.

    teksica

    With combination/rosacea/sensitive skin, I'm blessed with the most reactive skin. I bought one tube of this cleanser and had no issues - decided to try something different and straight away all of my cystic problems and redness came back. This product is incredibly gentle as it can be emulsified with water, making a little go a long way. Within three days the difference was huge. Can't live withou...

    Cherry12

    I have combination acne prone skin and was recommended to use this as I currently get laser hair removal.
    It’s nice as a substitute for shaving cream and cleanses ok. Doesn’t remove mascara well but the rest of my makeup is gone.
    It dries my skin though so I need to moisturise quickly.
    I’ve noticed my skin getting better but I also use it with other skinstitute products so I’m gu...

  34. The best make-up removal cleanser there is!

    Tash

    I have found that this is the only cleanser that removes my Estee Lauder Doublewear foundation, yet is also gentle on the skin. I double cleanse with this every night and use a Clarisonic on the second cleanse. With any other cleanser I have tried I find there is still foundation on the skin after the second cleanse, but this Skinstitut gentle cleanser leaves my skin feeling super clean.
  35. Fantastic all rounder

    Donna

    I am loving this cleanser. As the name suggests, it is gentle on my sensitive skin. I use it on my face and behind my ears, whilst showering as I find it easy to rinse off this way. It is great as a makeup remover and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean without drying. I pick and choose which cleanser I use each day, based on how my skin is feeling and find I often come back to this one as it is ...

    Jessica

    This is the cleanser I always come back to. No matter the time of year or how my skin is behaving this cleanser always does the trick. It is a thick gel consistency, a little goes a long way and it lathers into a beautiful silky texture. The Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser is affordable and effective at removing makeup (first cleanse) and cleansing skin (second cleanse). I like to work it into a lather...

  37. Last forever, super gentle

    Kim

    A little bit goes a long way with this cleanser! So a bottle lasts forever which is great value. Great gentle cleansers if you have sensitive skin and don’t wear much makeup, skin is left feeling clean without the tightness!
  38. Beautiful cleanser

    Joel

    Really is lovely and gentle. I’m really happy with this and use it every morning!
  39. awesome cleanser

    Cammy

    I would recommend this for people with very sensitive skin, works very well
  40. Cleared my skin

    Danni G

    Changing to this cleanser has cleared my skin! I suffered from horrible breakouts constantly and as soon I changed to this cleanser no more breakouts. Such a nice cleanser and removes all makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean and beautiful
  41. Refreshed

    Anne

    Good foaming cleanser, lathers up very easy and makes my skin feeling refreshed and clean. Very gentle on the skin and doesn't dry out.
  42. A little bit goes a long way

    Kat

    I have been using this cleanser for a year now and can not fault it. It’s perfect for sensitive skin, doesn’t dry my skin and a little bit goes a long way. Good value for money.
  43. Love this cleanser

    Sharni

    I use this cleanser most days and to remove makeup . Leaves skin feeling fresh and clean without over drying
  44. Love

    Teasa

    Leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after use.
  45. Really good cleanser

    Jess

    I really liked using this cleanser. It was great to remove makeup and as a gentle cleanser after any facial treatments. It lasted a really long time even using it morning and night. If I didn't have so many other cleansers to try, I'd definitely repurchase it.
  46. very gentle cleanser

    yoyo

    The cleaner is very gentle, I use it after chemical peels and skin needling.
  47. Really wanted it to work...

    Jackie

    Friends of mine all rave about Skinstitut so I decided to give this cleanser a go. I am in my late 20s, sensitive skin. I found using this product really dried my skin out, and left it feeling super tight. Didnt love it after a few weeks of trying it so I ended up giving it away.
  48. Great for sensitive skin.

    Lexie

    Has made my skin smooth and not break out.
  49. Gentle

    Ena

    Doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, gentle enough but it’s still clarifying. Great size tube, will last a while

  51. New fav..

    Shannon

    After spending too much money on salon skincare for little payoff, I recently decided to switch over to the skinstitut range as it was more affordable and has a good reputation. I have dry and very sensitive skin, and was recommended this cleanser as it supposedly doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils etc.

    I've been using this cleanser for two months now, and have been converted...

    recommended by my beautician, and have been using it for a few tubs already.

  54. The BEST!

    I have sensitive skin and this works a TREAT! i had heard really good things about skinstiut products so i finally gave them a go and i have noticed such a huge improvement in my skin. 10/10 recommend
  55. Perfect dual action cleanser and makeup remover

    Nadine

    This is my favourite cleanser, the ingredients are very good for your skin, the product consistency is a gel which becomes foam once you work it. I apply a small pea sized amount on to my clarisonic and then work the product in to create a lather.
    This amazing product does NOT leave your skin tight and dry, it leaves the skin supple but thoroughly cleans it.

    This cleanser comes with a huge size and last forever. It’s very gentle and help cleanse my skin without over drying my skin. It also didn’t break me out. Definitely recommend.
  57. The best!

    Jess

    I have tried many many skin care products, but Skinstitut is the one I will be sticking too! I have completely switched over to the Skinstitut products since the birth of my son after experiencing breakouts on my chin. This cleanser is gentle yet removes makeup to leave my skin feeling fresh. I dont get that 'tight' feeling on my skin like other products have left me feeling in the past.
  58. Clean, but not too clean

    Chai

    Huge tube and only a tiny pea amount of this gel like cleanser is all that’s needed for a through face/neck cleanse. Removes oils and makeup without leaving the skin feeling stripped and dry. Also helps to control my acne really well.
  59. Very nice cleanser

    Taylor

    I like this cleanser, it smells nice with the aloe vera in it and i feel like it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dry afterwards. I always feel like my skin is glowing after as well.
  60. Best. Product.

    Great gentle cleanser for my sensitive skin. Minimises my breakouts. Great daily use
  62. Gentle Indeed

    T

    It's quite gentle, as the name suggests and rather non-drying compared to others I've tried, however for me didn't seem to cleanse SPF or residual make up (say after using 1-2 make up wipes) very well. The packaging makes it super hard to not dispense 3-4x the amount you need however which is very annoying as it's not like I can easily put it back, maybe that's a side effect of grabbing a bigger s...

  63. Extra gentle cleaner

    Lucy

    If you suffer from sensitive skin like I do, this is a great daily cleanser for you. My face feels clean and soft after every use, and my break outs have been minimal since I started using this.
  64. Does what is says on the bottle

    Niamh

    Super gentle cleanser perfect for everyday and melts away makeup with ease. The gel formula is really nice and lightweight. Doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or tight. It's really good but I won't repurchase as I prefer the Glycolic cleanser.
  65. Great gentle cleanser

    Becky

    This cleanser is super gentle and doesn’t dry out my combination, acne prone skin. It has a mild scent which isn’t overpowering and you only need a tiny bit. I find that I need to double cleanse if I’m wearing make up but I don’t mind as this cleanser is so gentle.
  66. Gentle it is!

    Taryn

    Such a lovely cleanser. Doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight after use. Does a good job of removing my makeup when I'm in a rush and use this in the shower for a quick wash. Light weight gel, gentle on my skin, easy to use and a size that will last for a while.
  67. Lovely All Round Cleanser

    Emily

    I always keep coming back to this cleanser! its so gentle and soothing, my skin always feels amazing after using, I find my skin really appreciates a soft, gentle cleanser seeing as I'm experienced with acids and retinols, a harsh cleanser with active ingredients is too much for it
  68. Gentle yet effective

    Angelique

    This product is gentle yet works really well to keep my skin cleanser and free of impurities. My skin looks clearer and is no longer dry. This product won’t dry your skin like many cleansers.
  69. Best by far

    Louise

    I have used so many cleansers over the years and this has now become my go to. I received a 50ml sample, and it has lasted a good 2 1/2 months as you only need a pea sized drop to get the benefits of its cleansing powers. Leaves skin feeling clean but not dehydrated or stripped.
  70. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT

    CARLI

    I love this cleanser!! My skin is very sensitive to cleansers. Normally if I use a cleanser on a regular basis I get red patches on my face and my skin dries out. This stuff is amazing! A little goes a long way. I can use it every day and it doesn't irritate my skin. It actually makes my skin feel soft. It smells really good too. I can't wait to try more from this brand.
  71. Gentle and foaming

    gaby

    A little goes a long way so you get a lot of use out of this tube. I find this great for removing make up including my mascara, it’s nice and gentle and easy to wash off with no residue. This cleanser is so gentle, and does not irritate my sensitive skin or dry it out at all.
  72. A great simple cleanser!

    Bianca

    This is a great everyday cleanser. No nasties, pleasant smell, gentle on the skin. You only need a pea size amount! My only small complaint is it doesn't get rid of all my mascara bit all i do is double cleanse and its 99% gone. Great price too!
  73. Great cleanser

    Chantal

    I received a 50ml as a gift with purchase. It’s a lovely cleanser and removes makeup and dirt without being harsh on skin. It did not irritate my eczema prone skin.
  74. Cult Fav

    Holly

    I absolutely love this cleanser and have been using it for 3 years. It cleans my skin well, removing all dirt and makeup without stripping my skin or leaving it dry. I am yet to find a cleanser that beats Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser.
  75. My go to cleanser

    Amanda

    I have been using this cleanser for over 3 years. I love it. I have very sensitive skin and this never irritates my skin. Also, it removes my makeup, including mascara and eyeshadow. I hope they never change this formula!
  76. Great makeup remover

    Talia

    Great at removing my makeup (excluding the eye makeup), especially without using any makeup pads or wipes (Yes to saving the environment and reducing waste!!). A little bit goes a long way - great formula, and smells great too!

    It doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dried. It removed excess oils without stripping my face. Really recommend this to anyone wanting to try an effective but gentle cleanser.
  79. Great product

    Jessica

    I bought this for my 10 year old who has dry skin and little black heads already. It is super gentle in her skin which i love with no irritation all while doing a great cleanse. It was a great recommendation for young skin
  80. Thorough cleanser but light enough that it doesn't leave your skin tight and dry

    Adele

    I brought this product after purchasing it initially at a skin clinic and I love this cleanser as it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry after using it. I have combination skin, more oily than dry at times, but this product feels like it really helps clear out all the pores and I even use it as a make up remover. I double cleanse normally but find my skin feels real clean after using it.
  81. good cleanser

    marta

    it's the second time I use this cleanser. I have sensitive skin and I find this cleanser to be indeed gentle. I use it every day twice a day and I find that it's a good size product that lasts for a while. Overall I like the skinstitut products. They are expensive when they are not on sale but they are often on sale here. They are better than drugstore products.
  82. Soft and Gentle

    Jade

    I received this cleanser as a tester and I love it. It really is gentle as the name suggests but still makes your face feel thoroughly clean after washing. It is a nice smelling, thin and clear formula that goes a long way. I only received a small sachet tester but it still lasted 3 nights. I highly recommend this product and would purchase myself when it’s on sale.
  83. Great gentle cleanser

    Karly

    I have combination skin and this is great for cleansing. I recommend doing a double cleanse if wearing make up.
  84. Very nourishing

    Isabel

    This cleanser is very nourishing for the skin. It has a thick formulation, which is perfect for the colder months.
  85. Great cleanser!

    Laura

    I received this in a goodie bag as a 50ml size and that lasted me around 1.5 months using it morning and night. I've been using this as a first cleanser and the Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser afterwards. My skin is feeling so fresh and clean every single day.

    A great gentle cleanser and I will definitely be buying the full size.
  86. Gentle and foaming

    Cha

    I feel like I get a great clean with this product but it doesn't strip my skin and make me feel dry. I also like the smell. It's a bit like a gel but really foams up in your hands. I like this product for doing a double cleanse at night.
  87. Great for acne prone skin

    Emma

    Have been using this product in conjunction with the retinol serum on my oily, pimple prone skin for around 6 weeks and have seen a huge improvement with less breakouts and a nicer more even skin tone.
  88. All time favourite

    Amy

    I love this cleanser so much ! I've recently changed to try something different and I regret it.
    This cleanser is gentle, removes all my make up and makes my skin feel clean afterwards.

    Would definitely recommend.
  89. perfect for sensitive skin

    katelyn

    this cleanser is so gentle, and does not irritate my sensitive skin or dry it out at all! would recommend for anyone with sensitive skin.
  90. Great for removing makeup

    Carolyn

    I find this great for removing make up including my mascara, it’s nice and gentle and easy to wash off with no residue. I then follow up with the Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12% and go over my forehead, cheeks and chin when i feel they need it. It’s a great combo
  91. Thick formula

    Dom

    I use this product as laser treatment aftercare, so I haven’t tried this product on my face. It is quite nice on the body however is so thick and gluggy that you can’t control how much comes out. It doesn’t lather up either.
  92. Very good

    Fleur

    Very good cleanser for a very reasonable price. Works well for combination skin. I find it a little drying so a good moisturiser after is essential
  93. love this

    Sally

    Very well priced for such an effective product, will be repurchasing! Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed!
  94. Daily use!

    Natasha

    I have used this as part of my daily skincare routine for a few years now and I love how it does not dry out my skin and leaves it feeling so clean and fresh.
