Most Helpful Positive

Great Cleanser!

Kylan

I love this cleanser for removing makeup, even around the eye. It smells great, is fresh and gives a good deep cleanse. It isn't so harsh that it leaves you feeling too dry though. One of my absolute all time favourite products!

Most Helpful Criticism

Good cleanser, but is it worth the price?

Sophie

This is probably my favourite product I've tried from Skinstitut, as it's amazing at removing makeup! I've now stopped using makeup remover and just double cleanse with this and my Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser. However, I am a little disappointed by it because I just feel like it's too expensive for what it actually is. Cetaphil and CeraVe do VERY similar cleansers for less than half the price. If you're happy to splurge on this Skinstitut cleanser, it is a good product! I'm just personally not totally convinced.

    would reccommend, i have loved this stuff its a good daily cleanser takes off all the dirt and makeup and leaves skin feeling clean and fresh.
  3. Beautiful soft cleanser

    Nicole

    verified purchaser
    I’ve been using this cleanser for about 6 months and absolutely love it.
    It’s soft on my face while still removing make up. I love that it’s also able to be used to remove eye make up, without having to use a separate product. A little bit of this cleanser goes a long way.

    Brit

    verified purchaser
    I have endlessly been searching for the right product for my acne prone, oily skin for years. I've spent $100s of dollars testing out different products from your basic cleansers to your expensive brands and nothing worked well for me. However, this cleanser has changed my skin completely. It's not harsh, cleanses well and leaves my face feeling so fresh and clean. The bottle lasts a long time too...

  7. A good basic cleanser

    Danielle80

    verified purchaser
    This is a good everyday gentle, non drying, cleanser. Skin feels hydrated afterwards and not dry at all. I alternate this with the enzymatic micro peel for a more intensive cleanse. Love skinstitut.
  8. Best Cleanser Ever

    Sally

    verified purchaser
    I'm not great at keeping up with a skincare routine but always use this cleanser! It has a clean, amazing scent and always leaves my skin feeling fresh. If you are struggling over how to choose a cleanser this is for you.
  9. Great

    Monica

    I love the skinstiut gentle cleanser! This cleanser is so gentle and makes the skin feel great! I had acne prone skin, now that i use skinstiut my skin has cleared up so much!
  10. Amazing Gel Cleanser

    Jesse

    This Product is amazing, after cleaning I still feel hydrated and it does a great job of cleansing my skin from oil and impurities. Awesome job with this product and I enjoy most of the range as well.
  11. Nice gentle cleanser

    Easy to use, low scent and gentle on skin
  12. My Saviour

    Benita

    For years I have been looking for affordable quality skin care products, changing from this and that with no consistency.

    I started using this cleanser about 4 months ago and my skin has never felt smoother and looked clearer.

    Love these products!
  13. Love it!

    This is the best cleanser I have ever used. Like the name says it is gentle but leaves my skin so clean and soft, excellent!

    Jord

    I have super acne prone skin, was happily surprised to find my skin didn’t breakout after use and within a week redness was settling down and acne was starting to heal.

    I really love the smell or lack of, it has a slight smell of maybe aloe Vera which is nice and not overwhelming. Gel like consistency which works into a lather well and I’m finding I really don’t need much so the bottl...

  15. Soft on the Skin

    Alex

    I use this for the days after I've had a microdermabrasion or skin peel instead of the glycolic cleanser & scrub. It is softer on the skin and allows the treatments to work how they should. It leaves the skins feeling refreshed and clean - but I like the glycolic cleanser for a stronger clean on breakouts. This is great for after treatments or someone with sensitive skin!
  16. Wow!!

    Sam

    I received a full size sample of Skinstitut's cleanser from Adore Beauty (thank you!) and oh my goodness! This is the best cleanser I've ever used! I was skeptical at first - my sensitive skin has never tolerated cleansers, but this gel is so light that it does the job without overly stripping. Will definitely keep using in my routine!
  17. Gentle & luxurious cleanser

    Lana

    i adore this cleanser. It’s gentle and a little goes a long way, removing all makeup including stubborn eye makeup. My face feels fresh & beautifully clean. Great value for money. And always a bonus to support an Australian company. Highly recommend.

    Melissa

    I have only recently got into a skin care routine the past 6 months following some unusual breakouts and also perioral dermatitis which I hadn't ever experienced (I am 32).

  19. Effective and gentle

    Lainie

    Effective and gentle cleanser. Cleanses face thoroughly without stripping. Also lathers up well. I still felt a bit tight on my cheeks afterwards so maybe my skin is too sensitive for it.
  20. Perfect for everyday use

    Mjunsu

    Definitely one of the best gentle cleansers I’ve used in my lifetime! Very gentle on the skin and doesn’t make my skin dry and feeling tight like other cleansers I’ve used in the past.
  21. Affordable

    chloeschoe

    Really enjoy the texture and fresh feeling of this cleanser. Lathers enough to remove makeup and is gentle. It doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped or dry at all.
  22. Simply the best!

    Amanda

    I use this product in the evening to remove makeup or clean the skin. (twice if I have makeup on). It lasts for ages and is such a fantastic product. mix it with water to make it go further. Will never not have this product going. I use it daily!!
  23. Good, gentle cleanser

    Annie

    I really like this cleanser. No fragrance, alcohol, gentle and helps with my acne prone skin. Will definitely purchase full size.
  24. Amazing

    Sarah

    This is one of my favourite cleansers to use in the shower at night. Second buy!
  25. New staple

    Kt

    I had been using a cleanser for 2 years which I thought was fantastic, but then I tried this. You can really feel all the makeup come off leaving your skin clean and soft afterwards. The bottle is a great size and you only need a small amount so it lasts a long time
  26. OMFG!

    Mel

    Before being introduced to Skinstitut my skin was red, inflamed and prone to breakouts, now i'm confident in my skin and loving my face more and more each day!
    The gentle cleanser is a hydrating and nourishing cleanser developed with delicate and sensitive skin in mind. This lightweight cleanser also nourishes and replenishes dry, flaky skin.

    Bec

    Ive been using Skinstitut for years and Ive always loved the Glycolic Cleanser. It really cleans the day off I use it maybe 3 times a week. When Im not using it I use the Glycolic Srcub or Gentle Cleanser. I leave it on for about 5 minutes then wash it off.

  30. Unsure

    Hannah

    I like to use this product to cleanse body parts post laser treatment.
    I am a big fan of the skinstitute range, however, I do not to use this product on my face. I have combination skin and found this to leave the skin feeling overly dry and tight. I also had multiple breakouts after using this product for a few weeks. I much prefer the L-Lactic cleanser.
  31. A nice gentle cleanser

    Michelle

    This is one of my fave cleansers, it's gentle, cleanses well and seems to keep my skin clear and blemish free.

    This cleanser is a favourite of mine to remove makeup . It’s so gentle as the name suggests yet does the job perfect . My skin doesn’t feel dry after cleansing . It’s perfect .
  35. Freshness

    Age

    I have very sensitive skin I have used a lot of cleansers but this one is brilliant.
    It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight or dry doesn’t irritate. Best of all the smallest amount goes a long way.
    It leaves my skin looking and feeling clean.

    I received this cleanser with a goodie bag and I am quite impressed. I used it while I had dry eczema patches on my cheeks and it didn’t irritate it at all. I highly recommend!
  39. LOVE!

    Cha

    Great product and reduced my acne A LOT! I use in combination with they Glycolic Acid cleanser, which has worked a treat!
  40. 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.
  41. perfect

    t

    can actually feel this cleanser working, makes my skin feel so clean and also great for removing makeup
  42. 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.
  43. 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!
  44. perfect daily cleanser

    Lovely foaming cleanser, I use it to remove makeup in double cleanse. Works well at cleaning without drying out

    Cait

    A great cleanser for sensitive skin - leaves you feeling clean and fresh without the tight, dried out feeling some cleaners give you.
  47. 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.
  48. 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!

    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

  56. 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 yo...

    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.
  58. 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.
  59. 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!
  60. 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.
  61. Great daily cleanser

    Mia

    I use this cleanser most mornings and it’s great. Leaves skin feeling fresh and soft
  62. 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.
  63. gentle and fresh

    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.

    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.
