The best balancing cleanser

This cleanser exceeded expectations. It’s perfect at taking off makeup and I have found it very gentle and balances my combination skin. I’ve been using it for around two weeks and have no new breakouts since using this cleanser.

  2. Surprised with how good this was

    Emma J

    This was a sample product and I was surprisingly happy with how nice it was. It cleaned and was super gentle on my skin. There was no drying effect or oil stripping feeling and I found my skin had less breakouts. It also lasts ages as a little hit goes along way!
  3. Thorough cleanser

    Carly

    Gel cleanser that removes all make up perfectly including eye make up. Doesn’t leave skin feeling stripped but still is clean. Great price point
  4. Great choice

    tanya

    This cleanses my skin and is so gentle to my oily skin. It has also lasted me a long time
  5. Gentle on skin

    Kelly

    I received the luxury sample of this cleanser. Very gentle on skin, It is especially suitable for sensitive skin.
  6. Love this product!

    Amber

    This cleanser is perfect for sensitive skin. It removes make up and sunscreen easily, leaving your skin feeling clean and smooth. The generous size of the bottle allows it to last in comparison to other cleansers. The price is good value too!
  7. Really great cleanser!

    Natasha

    This is my favourite gentle cleanser. I use it every day and it never leaves my skin feeling stripped back. It leaves skin soft and clean, and it's gentle enough to remove eye makeup. At night i use it as a first cleanse then use an active cleanser on my second cleanse. This is the only cleanser i use in the morning. I would recommend everyone to have this in their bathroom. It's also great for ac...

    My favourite skin cleanser! I wear quite a bit of makeup, and it gets all of my makeup off with just a pea size amount. Leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed!
  9. Like it but don’t love it

    belbryan

    This cleanser is great for an everyday basic cleanser. It removes makeup and dirt easily - and the size is very very generous for its size. It’s lasted me ages! I would highly recommend it for sensitive skin or to someone getting started with skin care. However, if you’re trying to treat a concern such as acne, breakouts etc. I don’t think it would do much! My skin isn’t getting worse but it’s not...

  12. Best Moisturiser!!

    Taaj

    This is my holy grail everyday moisturiser. I have tried so many others and always come back to this one! It makes your face feel super hydrated and plump. It is at such a great price and works well with all the cleansers!! 100% always recommended to people who ask me what my skin secrets are!!
  13. L O V E

    Rhi

    I use this everyday, twice in the evenings!
    I am one of those people who don't really know their skin type, but this feels like an all-rounder! Removes make up with the first use, and cleanses with the second.
    I like to also use this first thing in the morning - my skin always feels fresh and ready for moisturiser/serums etc.
    Great for use on areas treated by laser hair removal...

  14. Amazing (if you don't have waterproof mascara)

    Elyse

    This is one of my favourite products for cleaning my face. It's super effective in getting makeup and soaps up really nicely. Unfortunately it isn't effective on waterproof mascara though :(

  17. Gentle everyday cleanser

    F

    This cleanser is great for everyday use although I find it doesn't remove all my makeup completely. I usually double cleanse anyway so this isn't a huge issue!
  18. Holy grail

    Ingrid

    I've been using this cleanser for quite a few years and it never fails to disappoint. One of the most calming, gentle and hydrating cleansers I have ever used and is really good at removing make up, especially if you double cleanse
  19. Good all rounder but nothing special

    Rubes

    The product did deliver on the gentle component, I didn’t find any irritation and I tend to have very sensitive skin. However, it’s nothing special and would compare the formula to Drunk Elephant gel cleanser. The price point is pretty good for the amount you get, but it is just a basic all rounder cleanser and not that great at removing eye makeup.
  20. good for first cleanse

    Violet

    good first step in double cleanse regime or good for after skin treatments such as peels. Does not sting eyes at all. Skin never feels tight or dry after use.
  21. Gentle is the perfect name

    LoveandAdore

    This cleanser is the only one that helps keep my hormonal acne at bay. It makes my skin feel so clean but never dry and overstripped, my favourite cleanser ever!
  22. best cleanser for sensitive skin

    tarma

    this is the best cleanser for my sensitive skin. Can use it anytime and twice a day without getting any redness
  23. I just keep repurchasing!

    ke_luc

    Love love love. So simple, so gentle.
  24. So gentle and lovely!

    Jas

    I use this with a konjac sponge (as it's so gentle and foams up lovely with the sponge for light exfoliation) as my second cleanse after an oil-based cleanser. It is so gentle and the gel texture feels really nourishing on my sensitive dry skin.
  25. a good cleanser

    ellis

    a good gentle everyday cleanser. Didn't really dry my skin and left it feeling fresh.
  26. Another great Skinstitut product

    Lou

    Absolutely love this gentle cleanser. I have sensitive skin and this works a treat! Have been happily using this cleanser for almost 2 years. Great quality and great value product. Don't see myself changing cleaners any time soon.
  27. Great everyday cleanser

    Shelly

    Great for daily use on my dry skin.
  28. Nice cleanser

    Miss_Ivy11

    This is a good cleanser however I do prefer one-step ones that remove all traces of makeup. I tend to use as my second cleanse and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped.

    Iv been using this cleanser for years, great at removing makeup and keeping your skin fresh.
  30. skinstitut

    gentle cleanser is my favourite for when i'm having sensitivities or a breakout. removes makeup very easily with no irritation
  31. The best!

    T

    Doesn’t strip all the good oils from your skin but gives a nice gentle deep clean! Great for morning and night I always go back to this cleanser! The price is amazing for a cosmeceutical
  32. AMAZING

    Erin

    Love this cleanswe! My skin is acne prone and aging and its hands down my fav! It gives a really good clean but is gentle.

    This is a really lovely cleanser. It’s so gentle and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, while also cleansing my face of the day!
  34. Amazing Cleanser

    Carolyn

    I have been using this cleanser with one of the facial cleansing brushes and I honestly love it! I am just about to go through my 4th bottle. It helps get makeup off, whilst also having no irritation with my skin. I have acne prone skin and this has certainly improved that!
  35. Good make up remover

    Mabel

    Not sure it's worth the price, but it does last and removes make up :)
  36. As good as other high end ceuticals brand

    Abi

    Was a bit worried trying a new cleanser at I love the one I use from a current expensive salon exclusive brand. But have started using this when that one ran out and loving it just as much! Alot cheaper and goes further. Found my new go to cleanser
  37. Perfect cleanser

    SLS

    I love this cleanser so much. It removes everything from my face, all the dirt & grim, make up and even mascara.
    It’s gentle so I never experience any irritation. I’ve been through 3 bottles of it, I just love it.
  38. Best Cleanser I've Ever Used

    Juliet

    I use this cleanser twice a day religiously and I swear by it. It is one of the only skincare products that I am totally loyal to and it does exactly as it says, gently cleanses your face. I will repurchase over and over.

    Lyn

    Love this product. It cleans my make up off so easily. I sometimes use it with my Foreo to really cleanse and buff my skin and it's never too drying. Smells amazing!
  41. Great for sensitive skin

    Emma

    Great for sensitive skin, not too drying. Always feel refreshed afterwards. Although it says it can be used to remove makeup I find it doesn’t work well for that.
  42. Great for sensitive skin

    Rosalie

    I’ve been struggling with hormonal acne since coming off of contraception, and this cleanser has helped significantly. I was usuing an Alpha-H one previously that was much too harsh, but after using this my skin has improved greatly, and my skin feels very clean and soft afterwards.
  43. Cannot go wrong

    Kaylee

    I honestly don’t think this cleanser can do any wrong. It removes makeup like a charm, isn’t drying and doesn’t make me break out or clog my pores. Depending on how my skin feels/if I wore makeup I’ll either use this as my first cleanse or my second cleanse after an oil cleanser (when wearing makeup). I love that it doesn’t have any actives in it so my skin isn’t hypersensitive when I do apply my ...

    Kyla Dee

    I love this product. I’m never scared to use it twice or three times on my face. It’s not overly dry afterwards but tight enough to know it’s done it’s job. And if I’m having a hormonal BO- using this once followed by the gentle glycolic is the bees knees. I’ve strayed a few times from this- because of pretty labels or influencers or the podcast.. and whilst others have been nice.. they just don’t...

  46. 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!
  47. Really good

    Aleisha

    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.
  48. Beautiful soft cleanser

    Nicole

    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.

    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...

    Danielle80

    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.
  53. Best Cleanser Ever

    Sally

    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.
  54. Great

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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...

  60. 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!
  61. 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!
  62. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  85. 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.
  86. perfect

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

    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.
  88. 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!

    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.
