Overall good cleanser
Was recommended this brand and face cleanser to my surprise my skin really likes it. No more dry skin around my eyes, takes make up off (not so good with Waterproof mascara though), you don’t need to use a lot of it. Will keep buying very happy

  2. good

    easy on the skin, removes makeup and cleans skin!
  3. Great staple for sensitive skin

    I was looking for a staple cleanser that wasn’t harsh on the skin since i use a lot of exfoliating products. i love this cleanser; no harsh chemicals, scents and it removes makeup and can even be used on the eyes. very affordable too in comparison to some other cosmetic grade brands.
  4. Great for dry/sensitive skin!!

    I started using retinols about a year ago and since then my skin has become much drier and slightly more sensitive, and this has been really helpful with those issues. I feel as though it doesn’t strip my skin of all its moisture, and if fact find that it leaves it more hydrated after using it. I also don’t experience any tingling or redness when/after using this cleanser, which is really great. Totally recommend this!!
  5. Not impressed

    Bought this cleanser as recommended by a laser technician but I find it over-priced and ineffective: have to use it 2-3 times to properly remove makeup. Definitely better cleansers out there!
  6. Lovely

    This is such a good face wash!!! it makes my skin feel so clean and soft, it definitely gets all the dirt out and even helps clear my acne I love this so much
  7. A good all-round gentle cleanser

    A nice everyday cleanser for removing makeup and sunscreen.
  8. Great, not amazing

    Great cleanser, super gentle.
    I just need to find cleanser with more 'deep cleansing' property for my skin
    but overall great price for this kind of product. doesn't irritate my sensitive skin
  9. Best cleanser

    This cleanser is amazing! It feels so good on your skin and smells so nice. I use it every morning and night and I love how it makes my skin feel so fresh and firm. The skinstitut range is amazing and I can't see myself ever using different skin care.
  10. Lovely

    This product removes absolutely all of my makeup after using it with cleansing gel. It is so gentle on the skin as well and you only need a small amount it lasts forever.
  11. Great Everyday Cleanser

    I have very fussy and irritable combo skin with some cystic breakouts here and there. This cleanser is great for everyday use! A little goes a long way and it smells divine and does an amazing job ridding of leftover makeup, dirt, and oil without stripping your skin. It doesn't leave it feeling tight after a cleanse at all but leaves it feeling so clean. It has definitely helped calm my skin as well as I haven't had new breakouts since using it. I use this everyday in conjunction with the Glycolic 14% Scrub, which I use 1-2x a week. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great all-rounder!!
  12. Awesome with and without exfoliating

    Such a nice, gentle cleanser to wash the surface and remove makeup. I use with exfoliating as well which is super effective and not over powering.
  13. Perfect everyday cleanser

    Simple but effective gentle cleanser - skin feels soft after washing. Would probably need to double cleanse if wearing make-up though as it's quite gentle
  14. All time fav

    Love this product it’s gentle but works well.
  15. Good product

    Good everyday cleanser, removes all makeup easily and doesn’t dry skin out or leave it feeling tight.
  16. Great and gentle

    I have combination skin type. This cleanser is very gentle and effective. It doesn’t break me out. A little goes a long way. Definitely recommend
  17. Love this product

    Have been using this product for years, removes all makeup so easily and cleans the skin so well.
  18. Great quality and gentle

    My skin gets oily due to using harsh products but I think this is the cleanser I will now stick with. It doesn't take much to cleanse the face and it lathers up nicely too. Definitely a good buy and the size of the bottle will last a long time.
  19. dont see any changes

    I have been using this product for 6 months now. I bought the whole range because I wanted to see the full potential however I feel like my pores are worse and I have very clogged more and an increase in blackheads. Save your money and do not buy this product.
  20. One of the best

    Really good if your skin is irritated. I always go back to this when my skin needs a rest but still needs to be cleaned. This always works with my skin no matter what! Very very good.
  21. Great product

    I have been using the product for over a year now and I believe it is is great product. I generally have dry skin and this product is gentle enough that it does not dry out my skin. Would highly recommend this product to anyone with drier skin that needs a gentle cleanser
  22. Gentle cleanser for sensitive combination skin

    It's rare for me to buy the same cleanser twice but I quite like this one. I have combination skin in the summer and I find this is when it works best. It's great at removing makeup too.
  23. Lasts forever

    I find this cleanser lasts such a long time as a little goes a long way. It is so gentle on my skin and always makes my skins feel fresh after using it.
  24. Must Have Product

    I was given a sample size of this product and it was great. It left my skin feeling clean and smooth. It also helped with removing make up too.
  25. Repeat purchase

    Fourth time I have purchased this product! Perfect for morning and night, cleansing off make up! My skin is normal, and this product doesn’t dry or make it oily. A little goes a long way! Smells pleasant, definitely an all round product!
  26. Great cleanser from Skinstitut!

    This cleanser is the perfect daily cleanser, it's part of my evening routine. (I use Skinstitut's Lactic Acid cleanser in the morning)
    I don't wear much make up but I do wear waterproof mascara and it removes that when i gently massage into my lashes. No complaints at all and will definitely buy again!
  27. Wonderful cleanser

    This is my number one go to cleanser, it gently cleans my skin without drying or stripping it of any moisture, I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an effective and gentle cleanser.

  29. Great for everyday

    I really liked this cleanser, it was great for every day use and it worked really well to remove makeup. I like the gel texture and that it foamed up when mixed with water. It felt really nice to use and is perfect if you like that squeaky clean feeling (because of this I found it a little bit stripping so didn't repurchase).
  30. Gentle and good value

    Works well to remove make up, without drying the skin. Gentle on the delicate eye area. And a little product goes a long way. I would repurchase this one.
  31. great cleanser

    great cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin, helps reduce blemishes and doesn't have any nasty chemicals
  32. First gentle cleanser I can use

    This is the first gentle cleanser that doesn’t break me out. I’ve always felt the need to use strong cleansers as I thought they were the only ones that helped my skin. But less is more and this product is amazing
  33. I highly recommend this product. I have been using it for over 6 months and It is gentle, effective and a little goes a long way. My skin feels soo good after!

  34. Best cleanser

    I have super sensitive skin and whatever cleanser I used I always got a reaction. I really love skinstitute products so I have the cleanser a go, it’s really gentle and the sizing is great for the price, it cleanses the face with a small amount and gives amazing results!!
  35. Very Gentle

    I have combination/oily skin. This product is very gentle and light. It works really well on me. I use this product together with the glycolic cleanser and they are both amazing. Also, the size of the cleanser last forever.
  36. Best cleanser I've used

    this cleanser changed my life and my skin. After washing my skin is so glowy and soft and makes my face feel so clean and refreshed. I still get occasional breakouts however this has definitely reduced the amount from what I used to get
  37. AMAZING

    A wonderful product for people with sensitive breakout prone skin - I am 34 and struggle with breakouts however since using this I have noticed my skin clearing and much less congestion.
  38. Excellent, gentle, effective.

    I highly recommend this product. It’s gentle, effective and a little goes a long way. I skin feels amazing after I’ve used it.
  39. Super gentle!

    Such a calming, gentle cleanser! Has never made me break out, always leaves my skin feeling super soft and clean!!
  40. Great

    This product is great and light on the skin!
  41. Great product great price

    I’ve converted to the Skinstitut range since I purchased this cleanser. It takes off my makeup nicely and makes my face feel soft and clean. I also purchased the Glycolic cleanser but found it dried out my skin in comparison to this one! Great price too as you only need the smallest amount so it will last for quite a while :)
  42. amazing gentle cleanser.

    I love this product, it is as the name states a gentle cleanser and great for everyday use. Gentle enough to use on my eye area and removes all traces of makeup without leaving my skin feeling tight. Definitely a favourite product.
  43. Great mid range cleanser

    This cleanser is a work horse for it's money.
    It's definitely gentle on my super sensitive skin. It doesn't dry me out or strip my skin and I'm using it up to 3 x daily in my regime.

    The great size of it goes a long way!
  44. Love love love!

    Such a gentle cleanser, perfect for morning and night use! I used this while I was pregnant as it is gentle and doesn’t have harsh ingredients in it and loved it! Got hardly any breakouts or negative reactions. Perfect for my normal/oily skin. I did find I needed to do this cleanse twice when wearing heavier makeup but other than that it is perfect!!
  45. Great for dry and sensitive skin!

    I have both super dry and sensitive skin, and this cleanser was so nice and gentle on my skin!
  46. My favourite

    Love this cleanser I have such sensitive skin that's both dry and oily and this keeps my skin fresh and clean and blemish free. Have been using it for 5 yrs now.
  47. LOVE THIS

    First of all, I love the skinstitut range and have used them religiously for years! I have pretty oily skin that can be sensitive at times. I love how gently this cleanser is, whilst still cleaning my skin. Would definitely recommend!
  48. Skin is feeling amazing

    This is my second order for this cleaner. My skin is looking flawless. Can't fault the product at all and will keep using it.
  49. Lovely !

    This cleanser is so gentle and so nice on the skin, takes makeup off great. I use this in the morning and then glycolic cleanser at night I feel like it’s doing wonders for my skin, doesn’t dry it out either ! It’s also perfect after I have skin treatments done and don’t want to use anything too hectic
  50. Non drying and not too spendy!

    I've been using this for about a month. No massive difference to my skin appearance, but it does feel nice and smooth after cleansing, and this cleanser does not dry out my skin. Also, it smells good and its great value for money, you literally only need a tiny pea sized amount for your whole face!! I'd buy it again
  51. AMAZING

    Best cleanser I have ever used. I have normal/sensitive/dry skin and this makes my skin feel amazing - perfect for removing make up.

    I have been using the gentle cleanser for about 3+ years
  52. Wonderful for sensitive skin

    Having had no luck with finding a cleanser which suited my sensitive skin, I was so happy to have stumbled across this gem. It is gentle, non-drying has a light a fresh smell to it.
    It leaves absolutely no residue on my face and I even use it to remove my heavy makeup. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with sensitive skin!
  53. A+

    This is the best cleanser I’ve ever tried. I have combination skin with the odd pimple. Since using this (2years) I don’t get any pimples whatsoever. Leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh with no oily residue. I use in conjunction with the moisturiser, rejuvenate, even blend , vitamin c and retinol. Love Skinstitut!!!
  54. Perfect

    This cleanser is so gentle yet still takes my makeup off and gives me that clean feeling withing the dryness! 5/5
  55. Amazing

    Love using this everyday, makes my skins feels so clean and moisturised
  56. Smells amazing

    Smells and feels amazing on skin. Gentle on sensitive skin.
  57. Great clean feeling!

    Great cleanser! I try leave it on for a minute massaging into my skin, you skin feels so clean afterwards!
  58. So gentle

    Great for everyday use. However not so good in removing make-up. Last forever.
  59. Cleanses like a gem

    I have been using this for almost a year now and love it! Cleans my skin so well. I couldn’t live without it.
  60. Perfect everyday cleanser

    Absolutely love this cleanser for everyday use. It leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth without drying it out. It's great for removing make up as well
  61. Its very good for all skin types ,after using this my skin flawless and looks hydrated live this product

    Love it its amazing work on dullness ,love it
  62. Gentle everyday cleanser

    Easy and gentle to use everyday on skin. Smells nice and leaves skin feeling cleanser and soft
  63. Good not amazing.

    I enjoy this cleanser but I haven't seen any real amazing changes in my skin. I am using the scrub as well. Overall its nice and you only need a little bit so money wise you get value for money. I doubt I will re-purchase when I run out.
  64. Always safe with skinstitut!

    Love this cleanser as I have sensitive skin and have alot of problems trying to find gentle products.
    My skin is always alot clearer and softer while using this product and very gentle on your skin. If you haven't tried this brand of you do you will fall in love with it like me :-).
  65. Everyday cleanser

    Just a beautiful gentle cleanser for everyday use, great to use in between the scrubs and glycolic range from skinstitut
  66. A nice, standard cleanser

    My skin can easily feel tight or dry with a lot of cleansers however I found that this never gave me that feeling. Used this for quite awhile until I eventually fell in love with another product however I still keep one of these in the bathroom cupboard in case I need a backup. Goes on nicely and does the job!
  67. Wonderful for sensitive skin

    Brilliant calming yet cleansing product. I have really sensitive skin but this calms it and keeps it looking fresh. Great product.
  68. I keep coming back

    When you look at this cleanser it's a little boring. It hasn't got beautiful packaging or a fancy ingredients. I've tried other cleansers, but in all honesty I cannot fault this one and I keep coming back to it. It really is gentle on the skin but it gets rid of all your make up! It is also really well priced for the size.
  69. LOVE!

    I absolutely love this cleanser!!!
    Really effective and does not strip my skin or leave it feeling tight like some others.
    I have very sensitive skin and this works great, no irritation at all.

    The only downfall is the smell, really not a fan but will continue using as the pros far outweigh the con!
  70. Cannot live without

    I have tried so many products before from very expensive to drugstore but nothing has ever worked on my acne. I use this product to take off my makeup at night and in the morning it has helped my skin so much. I use to have acne around my chin and that has all cleared up thanks to this product. You should definitely use it with the glycolic cleanser at night. It takes about 2 months of consistent use till you can see a result in your skin. Try it no regrets!
  71. Great for sensitive skin

    I have been using this cleanser on and off for the past 2 years, every time I deviate to try something new I come back to it as nothing quite compares.
    Pros: great for sensitive skin, deep clean, gentle, concentrated
  72. Great little cleanser.

    A great little cleanser for everyday use - removes makeup, sweat and oil without drying. Exactly what I was after in a cleanser for the shower and it smells amazing too.
  73. Incredible

    I have sensitive, combination skin so finding a cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin, yet thoroughly cleans has been hard to come by. I’ve tried many different brands over the years and most of the cleansers that are gentle enough on my skin will not remove makeup, and being a low-maintenance kinda girl, I hate the idea of having to use make-up remover as well. But this cleanser is incredible! It’s super gentle and removes every last bit of makeup (I double cleanse) and a little goes a very very long way so it’s great value! I will definitely be providing this guy a permanent spot in my bathroom.
  74. My favourite cleanser

    I have tried so many cleansers and this is the one I keep coming back to. I have been using the product for over a year now and I can definitely say it is my favourite. I struggle with sensitive skin which has broken out with all the other cleansers I have trialled but with this one, my complexion is beautifully clear.

    You also definitely get your bang for your buck with this product, I use it day and night and it still manages to last me a good couple months.
  75. Good cleanser

    I use this cleanser regularly and it's gentle yet effectively removes my makeup and and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh!
  76. Holy grail

    This cleanser is perfect for any time of the day! Works well for me when alternating with glycolic cleanser
  77. Perfect for a daily gentle cleanse

    Love, love, love this product. I've been using the Gentle Cleanser for a couple of years now and it's done wonders for my oily/combo skin. I use it every morning by itself and every night as the first step of a double cleanse (I follow it with the Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser).it's a lovely, gentle formula that won't strip your skin.
  78. My favorite cleanser!!

    I love all of the skinstituts products they are great for sensitive skin! The cleanser is safe to use daily and it helps clear my skin from blemishes also. It's soft and gentle and helps with the dry skin on my face. I highly recommend this product!
  79. Gentle, effective cleanser

    Was sent a sample of this cleanser, and really loved it. Very gentle, but it effectively removed my makeup including stubborn mascara. Left my skin feeling soft, not stripped or tight. I also liked the subtle scent - lovely and fresh without being over-perfumed. Will definitely purchase full size.
  80. Nice and gentle

    This cleanser is so gentle and effective at cleaning my face without the tight feeling.
  81. Great cleanser

    I use this cleanser with my clarisonic and it is great, It foams and cleans my face leaving it fresh. It is also really good for removing make up without drying your face out.
  82. Great daily gentle clean

    Doesn’t cause irritation on my sensitive skin, love this product!
  83. A beautiful cleanser

    I love this cleanser.
    It is so gentle and makes my face feel so soft and clean. It feels great on my
  84. Amazing range! great for people that have acne with PCOS

    Out of all the products I have tried (including antibiotics and prescription ointments), this is the only one that would actually clear my acne caused from having PCOS
  85. Miracle

    I have tried so many cleansers; as I always keep my skin routine very simple and basic, it plays an important role to have something which is kind to your skin at the same time does the job right. I have been using it for past 2 years, even in different climate. still works like a miracle.

    light feeling
    great price
    you keep it for ages even though I use generous amount 2-3 times a day

  86. Literally Gentle!

    This cleanser is good for daily cleansing and is quite literally gentle on the skin - for those with sensitive skin I would certainly recommend this product. While it doesn't completely rid all of my make up off - it is a great first step in my skin routine.
  87. Sooooo good!

    This cleanser is amazing! It always leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh! You only need the smallest amount, lather in your hands then wash your face. I used to have breakouts all the time, but since switching to this cleanser I have none!
  88. Another good product from skinstitut

    I have a few other products from skinstitut (glycolic scrub, even blend serum) and I was looking for a new cleanser so thought I’d give it a try given the good reviews. This products smells great, a little goes a long way, and leaves skin feeling smooth and clean. It’s a light cleanser, so if I have really heavy make up on after going out I use my face halo to help with the eyes especially. It’s a good everyday cleanser.
  89. Great!

    Having sensitive skin means that I need the best cleanser. I usually have to settle with something that leaves my skin oily because the others would dry it out. Not the case with this! It doesn’t leave my skin dry, to the point I feel like it would crack if I smiled, and it also doesn’t leave it oily. It’s a nice gel that doesn’t foam up much,but it sure does the trick.
  90. Amazing for removing makeup!

    I love to use this as a makeup remover, followed by the glycolic cleanser for a deeper clean. This cleanser is so beautiful. It's a gel like consistency that goes white when mixed with water and rubbed on the face. It leaves me mildly moisturised too. Great product.
  91. Nice gel cleanser

    I have been using this product for almost a month, I don't usually op for a gel cleanser but I thought I'd give it a go and its quite nice. I always double cleanse, first with a balm to lift my makeup off and then I use this product in the shower morning & night, so I don't rely on this product to remove makeup but I'm sure it would do the job. It doesn't irritate my skin, the smell is pleasant but not overpowering and the amount you get for the price is really good!
  92. Good for overall use

    Takes off substantial amount of makeup but better when used as a general body soap for sensitive skin.
  93. AMAZING!!!!

    What a product!

    This cleanser foams beautifully, and leaves your skin feeling truly refreshed and cleansed.
    It doesn't dry it out, or leave a residue.
    It is absolute perfection.

    If you have sensitive skin, do not fear! This product is super gentle and has not irritated my face in the slightest - this is coming from someone who previously could ONLY use QV Gentle Wash on her face. I dared to step outside of my known comfort zone, and found that this has lead to nothing but perfect skin.

    Thank you Skinstitut, you are actually life changing!
  94. Amazing

    I have been using skinstitut gentle cleanser for about a year, and I love it so much. Doesn’t dry out my skin, and gets my makeup of so easily! Doesn’t sting your eyes or anything! It’s beautiful x
  95. The best cleanser I’ve ever used!

    I have sensitive skin and this cleanser does the best job! Cleans my skin but doesn’t strip it in any way. A tiny bit goes a long way so the bottle lasts you ages!
  96. My go to for glowing skin

    I have been using skinstitut for years and I always get asked what I use on my skin and how I’m always glowing and my skin is clear it’s because of this product love it for making my skin clear and bright.
  97. Great every day cleanser

    I bought this on recommendation of my facialist after she gave me a sample to try. Such a great every day cleanser that leaves my skin feeling clean & fresh without being drying. I use it as step 1 of a double cleanse in the evening & it removes makeup easily
  98. Great!

    I use this gentle cleanser everyday as my first step in cleansing regime, highly recommend it, skin feels so clean and refreshed.
  99. Love it

    Just like the name says this is a gentle cleanser that leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, great start in my skin regime.
  100. Good for combination skin

    Was recommended to me by a beautician after having microdermabrasion. I have combination skin, oily in the t zone area and it has really helped to even out my skin.
    In the past I had tried so many other moisturizers but many left my skin extra oily and shiny.
