Leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after use.

Most Helpful Criticism

Thick formula


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.
  1. Love


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


    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.
  3. very gentle cleanser


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


    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.
  5. Great for sensitive skin.


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


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


    A clarifying and energising cleanser.. My skin has never felt soo good!
  8. New fav..


    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. Although I haven't noticed much improvement in breakouts, I have noticed that my skin isn't as dry and much less red day to day. You also only need a pea sized amount for it to lather nicely, so it is going to last a long time. It removes makeup well also.

    Will definitely be repurchasing.
  9. Gentle


    Got a sample of this and found it was very gentle on sensitive skin, didn't make my skin look dry or tight at all!
  10. my skin likes it


    recommended by my beautician, and have been using it for a few tubs already.
    is really gentle, and no breakouts afterward.
  11. 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
  12. Perfect dual action cleanser and makeup remover


    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.
    It also doubles up as my makeup remover, so gentle that it can be used to remove eye makeup. Holy grail!!
  13. Very gentle


    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.
  14. The best!


    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.
  15. Clean, but not too clean


    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.
  16. Very nice cleanser


    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.
  17. Best. Product.


    I love a squeaky clean feel and finish. This product ensures my skin stays nice and clean and I use it every day! Love love love!
  18. Great Cleanser


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


    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 size product or just not great package design. Overall average-above average for me but not amazing, could live without it, and will probably shop around other different cleansers, but a good find for an Australian, CF and vegan product. 3.5 stars because it's good product, though not great packaging and doesn't go beyond basic everyday cleansing as it claims to.
  20. Extra gentle cleaner


    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.
  21. Does what is says on the bottle


    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.
  22. Great gentle cleanser


    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.
  23. Gentle it is!


    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.
  24. Lovely All Round Cleanser


    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
  25. Gentle yet effective


    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.
  26. Best by far


    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.


    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.
  28. Gentle and foaming


    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.
  29. A great simple cleanser!


    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!
  30. Great cleanser


    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.
  31. Cult Fav


    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.
  32. My go to cleanser


    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!
  33. Great makeup remover


    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!
    Also great product for shaving body hair with
  34. Ok cleanser


    I tried this cleanser for 3 weeks now, it quite gentle on my skin however my skin feel quite dry and tight afterwards. Not sure if gonna repurchase tho.
  35. Gentle and nourishing!


    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.
  36. Great product


    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
  37. Thorough cleanser but light enough that it doesn't leave your skin tight and dry


    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.
  38. good cleanser


    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.
  39. Soft and Gentle


    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.
  40. Great gentle cleanser


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


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


    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.
  43. Gentle and foaming


    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.
  44. Great for acne prone skin


    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.
  45. All time favourite


    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.
    A little goes a long way so you get a lot of use out of this tube.
    Would definitely recommend.
  46. perfect for sensitive skin


    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.
  47. Great for removing makeup


    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
  48. Thick formula


    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.
  49. Very good


    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
  50. love this


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


    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.
  52. Cleans well


    Bought this product for my husband as he was complaining his skin always felt unclean and not fresh, this definitely did the job and his complexion has never been clearer.
  53. Repeat Purchase


    Love this product for my sensitive skin. I use an oil based product to remove waterproof eye make up then the Skinsitut Gentle Cleanser to remove the rest of my make up. Gentle, effective and not strong smelling. Will continue to repurchase.
  54. Great product, even better priced!


    Another cleanser that I like from this brand. A little goes a long way too. Although I did find it can be a little drying so make sure you have a good moisturiser to apply with it and your skin will be amazing
  55. Worth it!


    I’ve been using this product since October after switching from a different brand and I’m so glad I made the decision. I have dry, dehydrated skin and this gentle cleanser is exactly that. I feel clean and hydrated after using this, it doesn’t strip your skin and leave it red and irritated like I have found others to do. I double cleanse with this twice a day and love it!
  56. Great for sensitive skin


    Great cleanser for sensitive skin, always removes all my make up
  57. Gentle and clean


    I find this is a good gentle, non irritating cleanser. It is a bit drying if used all the time so i alternate with another.
  58. Best cleanser


    I don't have sensitive skin but I still use this cleanser every morning. I use the lactic at night. It's a gel and foams up nicely in the shower. Gentle on eyes too!
  59. not bad


    its okay, doesn't irritate my skin which is great but doesn't really do anything beyond that, i find my acne hasn't changed
  60. Drying


    I found this cleaner drying for my skin, which is a shame as I love their glycolic scrub. My daughter is using it now and has over oily skin and says it makes her itchy.
  61. Skin feels fresh and super clean with out drying out


    Love this product and super affordable
  62. Great for any age!


    I received a 50ml sample and love how gentle it is on my skin. I also gave some to my teenage son to use and he really liked it - it didn’t irritate his skin and also looks manly enough he’s not embarrassed to use it! A great in shower cleanser
  63. Awesome


    great for sensitive skin, doesn't irritate my skin as most things do, also makes my complexion look radient
  64. Suitable for very sensitive skin.


    This is the only cleanser that I could ever use that will not strip my skin of natural oils. My skin doesn't feel dry after washing but you can tell that it is cleaned. I usually clean once with Gentle Cleanser then use the L-Lactic acid after for double cleansing at night. I've had really bad acne on my cheeks and this is due to using products that I didn't know I was sensitised to. This cleanser cleans my skin without breaking my overly sensitive skin. Even Cetaphil breaks me out but this doesn't. That says a lot. It is quite pricey but I'm willing to pay for the quality of this product and for clear skin that I'm slowly starting to get back. I haven't had any major breakout from using this since the start. Would totally recommend for sensitive skin!!
  65. incredible


    Very well priced for such an effective product, will be repurchasing! I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use.
  66. Great at removing makeup


    I have been using Skinstitut for just over 12months now and my skin has never been better. I love this product as a first step in my skin care regime. It removes makeup and surface dirt, just as it says.
  67. Great Daily Cleanser


    I love using this product, it is great for sensitive skin. It makes my face feel so smooth and clean, I use it twice daily.
  68. Awesome


    great cleanser, I find this doesn't irritate my skin what so ever whihc it is very prone to. it also clear some of my ance
  69. Doesn't Strip!


    The Gentle Cleanser is great on its own as it doesn't strip the skin. It's also awesome to use first during a double cleanse. I find it removes my make up well too!
  70. Amazing !!


    This product is great removes makeup so Easley and is great as a body wash as well .
  71. Gets the job done


    It’s a nice cleanser and works great but it isn’t my favourite. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and it has no fragrance
  72. Perfect daily cleanser


    I love this cleanser! I cleanse morning and night it does not dry my skin out and I definitely notice the difference when not using it regularly. Would definitely recommend!
  73. Best Gentle Cleanser


    Been using this product for over 5 years. My skin has never looked better, you don't need much of this product to make your skin feel refreshed.
  74. Amazing cleanser


    Such a good daily cleanser and removes makeup so well don’t even need to use makeup remover
  75. Super gentle on your skin


    I’ve found the perfect cleanser for my dry and sensitive skin! I was recommended this by Laser Clinic for my skin and I’ve been using it for few years now. It’s really gentle on my skin and I have less to no breakouts! It smells nice and it can last you a long time!
  76. Good, but not my favourite


    I’ve been using this interchangeably with the dermalogica special cleansing gel. It’s a really good product that I would definitely recommend to someone searching for a new cleanser to try, but I personally prefer dermalogica for my skin as it feels a bit more gentle than the skinstitut and this leaves me feeling a little dried out compared with the dermalogica cleanser.
  77. Perfect cleanser


    My skin is very dry and most of cleansers leave it to me very dry that I cannot even smile.I began with the Starter kit of Skinstitute and I loved the L-lactic cleanser but I did not what to use AHA every day for my face, hence, I decided to give it a go with this one.
    It is even better and gets rid of the mascara as well because works well on the eyes. The only thing they could improve is the dispenser, if you are not gentle, you get more product than you need.
  78. Will purchase


    I received the 50ml size as a free gift with my purchase and really like this cleaner, Iv been using it as a first step makeup remover, as I wear water proof setting powder it gets right in there and gets it of quickly, small amount goes a long way.
  79. Gentle on the skin


    I use the gentle cleanser as a morning cleanser (to lightly remove any dirty or oil from the night before) and particularly like that my skin remains its natural moisture after cleansing. I love the massive size and I think it's value for money! If you are new to skincare and trying to find your fit, I believe this cleanser is a great introduction product!
  80. excellent


    This is such a goof cleanser! it smells so good, gets makeup off, cleans the face so well, helps with my acne, and doesn't dry out my skin at all! this product is utterly amazing! I definitely recommend for people with acne prone skin, and it goes well with ella bache products
  81. Gentle cleanser


    Great gentle cleanser, I got this as a free gift with my last order and I’ll definitely be repurchasing. I have oily skin and this makes my skin feel nice and clean and not over cleansed
  82. Surprisingly good

    Viv W

    I’m really enjoying this cleanser, after taking my makeup off with face halo I use a tiny amount of this - a little goes a long way - and my skin feels so clean afterwards.
  83. Super clean


    I received a 50 ml of this product and have been using it as my first cleanse to remove makeup and sunscreen and it does an amazing job of really cleaning everything.
  84. My go to face wash


    I always come back to this face wash. It doesn't dry my skin out and is gentle on my eyes. Removes my mascara.
    Will continue to re purchase
  85. Not the best from their range


    I have been a long user of L-Lactic cleanser.
    I decided to give this a go but I wasn't too impressed, however I have problematic skin (acne prone, dry and sensitive) and this may have not been a good match for me.

    May be better for someone with normal skin, looking for a simple ingredient cleanser to wash away grime from the day.
  86. great cleanser


    I really like this cleanser I use it at night twice once to remove my makeup and once to cleanse. it doesn't leave me skin too dry but also leaves it feeling really clean!
  87. Must have


    After only a few uses, I could notice a significant improvement with my skin.
  88. Feels lovely and the scent is nice


    I recently received a generous sized tester of this product, and after using the 12% glycolic face wash I had high hopes. I'm pleased to say that I'm really loving this product so far, it's very gentle and not hard to lather nicely on the skin at all. The cucumber scent is really refreshing and the cleanser leaves my skin feeling really clean without feeling dried out or tight. I will definitely be purchasing the full size of this product.
  89. Clean and effective


    Not the best cleanser I've come across but does the job well and is good value. Skin feels clean and I had fewer breakouts while using this product.
  90. My go to cleanser


    I have been using this cleanser for almost a year now. It is amazing and a little pea size actually goes a long way ! I have only purchased twice in a whole year so it is awesome value for money
  91. Great cleanser


    I really like this cleanser, removes easily my makeup and dirt without leaving my skin feeling dry, Totally recommended!
  92. clearer and fresher skin


    Id heard a lot about the Skinstitut range and decided to give it a try. As someone with problem areas on the forehead and the occasional face breakout and dry skin, this product worked wonders for me. I use it a couple of times a week with the scrub.

    Id definitely recommend this product to others
  93. Gentle but effective


    I love love love this cleanser! It’s not too harsh on my skin and doesn’t strip it too much but definitely makes the skin feel clean. Obsessed!
  94. Amazing!


    Amazing jelly-like gentle cleanser. Great for sensitive skin but also gets off all of the make up... even mascara. The only thing I would say that could be improved is the packaging, the way it is dispensed. It is so hard not to squeeze out too much.
  95. Amazing product. Worth it’s weight in gold


    I have dry skin and this cleanser is so gentle and doesn’t dry it out further. Cleared my skin within a few week. Love this product, I use it again and again.
  96. Very good gentle cleanser


    Great cleanser for day to day use, super gentle
