Great for my sensitive skin


So good for sensitive skin just as it states it is so gentle

Most Helpful Criticism

Does the job, but weird smell


The first thing I noticed about this cleanser was the scent... I don't even know how to describe it but it honestly makes me feel ill every time I use it. It does the job though and isn't stripping - very gentle. I can see how some people would love it, but it's not for me purely because of the way it smells.
  1. Great for my sensitive skin


    So good for sensitive skin just as it states it is so gentle
  2. Glowing skin!


    This product is fabulous. A small amount goes a long way! Helped clear my stubborn acne.
  3. great


    received a samples of this product, it is very gentle suitable for morning or days not going out. will purchase a full size afterwards.
  4. Love this cleanser


    This cleanser is great. Gentle on the skin. This works very well for me.
  5. Not great, not awful


    The product does the job however I found it a bit difficult to massage into the skin. It stayed quite jelly-like and it took quite a bit of effort to get it to spread over the skin. Consequently, the product takes so long to wash off as the jellyness clings onto the skin. Weirdly, it leaves my skin feeling stripped and incredibly dry. My face is cleansed but too cleansed.
  6. Gentle cleanser

    Amber Berry

    I have sensitive skin and this hasnt caused any reactions so far with using morning and night
  7. Best Deodorant EVER!


    I have been using this deodorant for about a year now and its by far the best natural deodorant I have used. It is very moisturising and I never had any issues with the "detoxing" smell that often comes with natural deodorants. It lasts for ages is very good value for the price.
  8. Fresh and light


    I received this as a sample it's light and gentle on the skin and cleans well and leaves the skin soft
  9. Leaves my skin squeaky clean


    This cleanser is my favourite it leaves my skin so soft and clean
  10. Great


    Great for removing makeup
  11. Awesome natural cleanser


    Really fresh and light. Great for the mornings and leaves my skin feeling lovely and clean! I love it.
  12. Great cleanser


    Very positive experience with this cleanser. It’s light and gentle, gives my skin a good clean without making it feel dry. I’d recommend!
  13. Best


    This facial cleanser is very gentle, but it has a very strong cleansing ability and is not tight after washing.
  14. Good


    This is a good cleanser to try, I did only try a sample but I enjoyed using it. I preferred to use this in the morning and it made my skin look quite fresh
  15. Good stuff


    I’m trying to get into a skincare routine after the pandemic has made me look like an old boot. Tried this cleanser and I’ve had good results. It does kind of smell like uncooked banana bread? Nothing shocking, but when you’re using it you’re like “oh I should do some baking this weekend”. Anyway I rate it.
  16. Feeling clean without dryness


    I received a sample it's a good cleanser gentle on the skin leaves the skin balanced and hydrated
  17. Perfect for crazy skin


    First off, super quick delivery! I love this cleanser and I'd never think about using anything else on my face. It cleans make up perfectly and leaves my skin looking radiant and super soft. 100% recommend for acne prone skin types. P.s. if you have a new breakout and wash with the face wash morning and night, it goes away in a day or two.
  18. Perfect!


    This is a great cleanser that our family all like very much, especially when the skin is sensitive. It is very gentle and can wash the face very clean.
  19. Best


    Very gentle and very clean
  20. So gentle!!

    Mariah Hipper

    So nice on your face, feels cool, gentle and this last ages as you don’t need much!!!
  21. It works


    It is quite mild and clean my face without dry feeling
  22. Not great for sensitive skin


    I received a 50ml sample of this cleanser so I was keen to try it out. I only used it twice and unfortunately I got a reaction both times, my skin went red and felt really dry.
  23. Nice one


    My skin feels smoother after washing my face with this. It is incredibly gentle too
  24. Amazing


    This product is absolutely gentle, and the face is not dry after use.
  25. A gentle and effective cleanser


    I've been using this cleanser for a few years now after winning a Skinstitute prize pack at my gym. It's a really gentle and effective cleanser which doesn't irritate my sensitive skin yet still removes makeup. Definitely recommend it.
  26. As the name suggests, GENTLE!


    Super gentle cleanser, doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. Doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dull. A nice gentle cleanser that takes off most of my makeup
  27. Favourite


    This is my favourite cleanser . Completely removes all makeup including waterproof mascara . It’s a very gentle yet powerful cleanser .
  28. Sensitive skins best friend!


    Love love love this thank you skinstitut for making a cleanser that doesn't give me a reaction. So gentle and non drying highly recommended! A beautiful product!
  29. Good


    this is a gentle cleanser and it takes off my makeup well.
  30. Super effective and gentle!


    Due to harsh acne treatments, my skin has been super dry, brittle, sensitive, and I suddenly couldn't use any of my old cleaners as they caused irritation and discomfort. I bought this cleaner on recommendation from a friend and found it fantastic. I use it morning and night - a double dose (about two pea-sized amounts) removes even the thickest make-up off my face. It is gentle, does not irritate...

  31. really great cleanser


    this is a great quality cleanser, super gentle but does the job
  32. Great for sensitive skin


    I have sensitive, combination skin and this works wonders. Leaves your skin feeling clean without becoming dry and tight. Only downside is the smell. It doesn't smell good, but its only on your skin for about 30 seconds and the result is worth it.
  33. nice and gentle


    this is really nice and gentle on my skin, works well and leaves my skin soft and clean
  34. Great


    This is very gentle and it cleansed my skin well. It calmed down some of my skin issues
  35. Staple in my routine


    I've brought this three times now and will continue to buy. I have very problematic skins and have not had an acne free day since I was 13. I now double double clense, morning and night in the morning I use this product for both clenses in the morning and the for the first clense in the evening. It's gentle enough for this and not drying. It also works as an excelllent makeup remover.

  36. great clanser


    A great basic cleanser. I have fairly sensitive skin at times and this cleanser s always gentle and leaves my skin fresh and smooth!
  37. Not for sensitive skin


    I received a sample of this cleanser in a goodie bag and - after reading all the positive reviews - thought it would be worth trying as second step in my cleansing routine. I’m first to admit that my skin is very finicky but unfortunately, it left my skin very dry / stripped and redness started developing after three days. I had to stop using and went back to my old trusted cleanser from drugstore...

  38. Fabulous


    I received a generous sample of this and it is a great cleanser. It is moisturising but not too heavy and I love the gel consistency.
  39. Unsure


    It is affordable however something in the ingredients my skin reacted to.
  40. Lovely gentle cleanser


    I have very sensitive skin and cleansers often leave me with tight and red skin after 2 cleanses. This has been the nicest on my skin, doesnt strip the natural oils, removes all make up and super cheap!
  41. Very Gentle


    I use this cleanser everyday. It just removes all of my makeup so effortlessly and is so gentle around the eyes as I have very sensitive skin. It calms down my acne during my period which is a big plus. Overall great product.
  42. So good for sensitive skin


    I started using this product almost 3 years ago since trying a sample from a Laser Clinic where they stocked this. After suffering from acne since around 16/17 (am 25 now) I have never ever broken out from this product, and I use it nearly every night. When I run out and use something else, my pimples come back. I will never switch products - planning to stockpile as soon as I get out of uni and i...

  43. Lasts a longggg time


    Love this cleanser as it's a good price and you only need a little bit so it lasts a long time. No complaints here.
  44. A beautiful and gentle cleanser


    This is yet another beautiful product made by this brand This cleanser is just gorgeous on my sensitive skin. Cannot fault this product.
  45. Does what it says


    Gives a nice cleanse with no tight feeling afterwards. I use this with my Clarisonic and i always feel clean and fresh after.
  46. Does what it says


    Gives a nice cleanse with no tight feeling afterwards. I use this with my Clarisonic and i always feel clean and fresh after.
  47. Gentle


    This is a very gentle cleanser. I found it too gentle for my combination skin, it is pleasant to apply and it goes on quite thick.
  48. good cleanser


    This is gentle and i use it at the end of the day. It also has an undertone smell but it is very light
  49. Soft and gentle


    My favourite cleanser. Keeps my skin feeling moist and not squeaky! Very gentle but still gets make up off.
  50. Very good


    Have been using this product for several years now and there is a reason for that. It is amazing.
  51. Staple


    LOVE this cleanser. Great price point. Nice clean subtle smell. Removes the day without stripping especially if you’re a double cleanser. It’s a repeat in my cart every Adore order.
  52. Obsessed


    I am obsessed with this cleanser! I am currently on my 5th bottle. A little bit goes a LONG way. I have combination skin and this doesn't leave me feeling dry and tight or oily either. Just super hydrated and clean.
  53. Works wonders


    I got this as a sample and after using it had to purchase it! One of my all time favourite cleansers, leaves the skin looking and feeling super clean and fresh. I started to see results after the first few washes
  54. squeaky clean


    great cleanser leaves my skin feeling very clean and gentle on the skin!!
  55. Love!


    A fantastic cleanser for the price point. Great for a fresh face feel, highly recommend this product for everyday use.
  56. Gentle cleanser


    This cleanser is good for removing make up and superficial dirt. Very gentle and kind to sensitive skin.
  57. Good value!


    This cleanser is really good at removing make-up and leaving your skin nice and clean. You also get a lot of product for the price!
  58. Kind to your skin and great for cleansing Makeup..


    Great on my sensitive acne prone skin, helps relieve any flare ups and removes makeup gently.. nice gel texture and not highly fragranced.
  59. Perfect


    I really like this cleanser. It’s nice and gentle, feels good on the skin and works well. I have tried some cleansers for my acne/oily skin that have been very drying and stripping but this one is neither of those things. Would definitely repurchase in the future.
  60. Love this cleanser


    I use this cleanser each night to wash off makeup, sunscreen, the day. I absolutely recommend. I have sensitivities/allergies with skin care and find it tricky to choose one that doesn't sting or cause redness. This cleanser is fab!
  61. Everyone's necessity

    Nat the Rat

    So great for taking off makeup (even eye makeup!) and forms up if you use a silicone fascial brush! Been using this everyday day and night for 2 years and its the bomb! IF YOU'RE READING THIS BUY IT! TRUST!
  62. great product


    I really liked this product! It was very gentle and never dried my skin out. I used this with an oil cleanser and my face always felt so refreshed afterwards. I would definitely buy this again in the future
  63. My go-to cleanser


    DEFINITELY lives up to its name of being a gentle cleanser. I have combination skin and I don't feel dry or squeaky after I use it, even if I double-cleanse, I just feel clean.

    Quite a big bottle and a pea-sized amount goes a long way, so the bottle lasts ages. Very good value for money, perfect if you're looking for a daily cleanser.
  64. Smells amazing


    Smells so good WOW. You don’t need much because it lathers up well. Lasts forever. Leaves my skin feeling clean but it’s super gentle!
  65. Perfect


    This cleanser is simple, and so gentle on your skin. Highly recommend.
  66. It's very nice


    This cleanser is nice. It leaves skin feeling fresh. It works best when you foam it up. It's gentle on the skin and perfect for what it needs to be. The bottle didn't last as long as I hoped, but it was affordable so will re-purchase.
  67. Great affordable cleanser

    Lisa Marie

    I love having this in my skincare routine, it’s gentle and doesn’t dry out my skin. Removes make up and dirt and really make me feel clean.
  68. Love this


    I have combination skin and this cleanser is so good for removing make up yet leaving the skin feeling hydrated and never tight.
  69. Perfect cleanser for all skin types


    This is an amazing cleanser, I have normal to dry skin, and have been breaking out in my chin, my skin is starting to clear up, my skin feels clean and fresh with out being stripped, removes making amazingly, also gentle enough to use in eye area.
    Honestly an amazing cleanser
  70. Very gentle and calming


    Perfect for every day use, doesn’t dry out your skin like a lot of cleansers do!
  71. good choice


    I repurchased 2 bottles. After washing, the skin is smooth and clean after removing simple makeup. The foam is not very thick and dense, but it is very light and thin, but it feels good after washing and the cleansing power does not collapse. , When washing, it will not be greasy and the grease on the face will be washed clean. After washing, the face will feel very smooth and not tight.
  72. Favourite morning cleanser


    I love this. It’s the perfect light, gel/foaming cleanser. Gives your skin a gentle clean and leaves it feeling fresh. I love using it in the morning and it kind of wakes me up.
  73. Lovely & gentle


    As the name says, this is so gentle. I had a facial in winter and was recommended to use a less harsh cleanser as my skin was a bit dry, and I have loved this as an AM cleanser since.
  74. Excellent Cleanser for all Skin Types


    Due to a bout of skin irritation coming on due to my initial usage of a retinol serum, I decided to purchase the cleanser as it was advertised to be great for sensitive skin. After one day of using the cleanser, my skin felt, soft, supple and the skin irritation reduced greatly. I will continue to make this cleanser an essential component ofmy skin care routine.
  75. Best cleaners available!


    A friend initially recommended this product and I am so glad they did! My skin has never felt so soft after using a cleanser. I am obsessed. I will definitely. re-purchase this again and again.
  76. Great everyday cleanser


    This cleanser does a great job for removing the last bits of makeup after an oil cleanser. It doesn't irritate my skin and I like the gentle smell.
  77. Great product


    I am using this together with other Skinstitute products, Even Blend Serum, L-Lactic Cleanser & Rejuvinate 15, to enhance the treatment I am receiving for hormonal pigmentation.
    I have noticed a marked reduction in both the darkness and the size of the area affected by the pigmentation.
    These products are fantastic, and the price is very reasonable.
  78. Good product


    I alternate using this cleanser with the ASAP glyoclic cleanser.
    When my skin is feeling a little sensitive or I have spent a little too long in the sun I use this cleanser I find it nice and gentle on my skin and the scent of it is quite refreshing, to me it smells of cucumber. I always use dermalogica pre-cleanse first so I cannot comment on this cleansers ability to remove make-up/sunscr...

  79. Fabulous cleanser


    This is my all time favourite cleanser. It gently removes make up and impurities from my skin and leaves it feeling silky smooth and never dry or irritated.
  80. Amazing cleansing product!


    I can't thank this product enough for saving my skin. It has cleared my acne so much and a great product to use in taking off make-up. I've been using it for over 2 years and have never looked back!
  81. My one and only cleanser!


    I have been using this cleanser religiously for a couple of years now. It is super gentle and doesn't dry my skin if anything I feel like it adds moisture. It also comes in this massive tube which means it takes me a few months to go through it! Definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a cleanser, you won't be disappointed!
  82. All rounder


    I love this cleanser, it is gentle on the skin but still feels like it cleans. I like how you don't feel squeaky after but just a nice nourished skin.
  83. It works


    This is my favourite cleanser ever. Super gentle - doesn't leave you with that stripped, tight feeling that some cleansers do. Skin just feels beautifully soft and clean. I even use it to remove eye makeup because there is no stinging if it gets in the eyes. Just wonderful!
  84. Awesome Cleanser


    Love this cleanser, leaves my skin feeling really clean and can remove makeup. Highly recommend
  85. Always repurchasing!


    I like this cleanser a lot! It has a gel like texture, a little goes a long way and my face always feels lovely and clean afterwards. Sometimes I can find it a little drying (usually only in the colder months), but it has been the best thing for cleansing after a full work day wearing a mask! (The maskne is real haha)
  86. Staple product


    A perfect twice daily cleanser - must have beauty item!
  87. Does the job, but weird smell


    The first thing I noticed about this cleanser was the scent... I don't even know how to describe it but it honestly makes me feel ill every time I use it. It does the job though and isn't stripping - very gentle. I can see how some people would love it, but it's not for me purely because of the way it smells.
  88. Gentle and glowing


    I have really enjoyed using this product pre laser therapy. But also as a gentle cleanser. It is great. I start with my Dermalogica pre cleanse and then use this. As a pre cleanse is important to get the initial makeup and day of your skin. Then I use this to follow up and it leaves my skin feeling soft, gentle and glowing. I always follow up with my moisturiser and serum I use too.
  89. Love this cleanser!


    Doesn’t irritate the skin at all. It is a good every day cleanser that helps improve the look and feel of the skin.
  90. By far my most favourite cleanser!!!


    I have super sensitive skin and have searched long and hard for the right cleanser which helps with pimple but doesn't overly dry me out. I started using this together with some skin treatments at Laser Clinics and have since been obsessed. I've been using this product for almost two years now and it's still just as effective. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend using the gentle cleanser in th...

  91. Holy grail cleanser


    I have struggled with sensitive, acne prone skin for a while. I resorted to using the cetaphil cleanser to help balance my skin and to not cause more breakouts; however, after a while I felt that yes it wasn't breaking me out, but it also wasn't actually minimising my existing breakouts. I decided to try the skinstitut gentle cleanser (after reading these amazing reviews) and it has been the best ...

  92. Not my favourite


    I’ve been using this for about a week now and I have to say I’m not overly fussed on it. I like the texture, the scent and the fact that you don’t need to use a lot of product. It also cleans my face really well. What I’m most disappointed about is that it leaves my skin feeling so dry which I find odd for a gentle cleanser. I normally have combo skin, but being winter it’s sitting more on the dry...

    I have used a lot of cleansers in my time and this one takes the cake by FAR! It leaves my skin feeling super soft and smooth and has cleared my blemishes.
  94. Great


    This really is a gentle cleanser. Light and effective without stripping or irritating my skin.
  95. Gentle and effective


    I really like this cleanser. I’ve repurchased a few times, it’s gentle on my skin and has a nice smell but doesn’t smell super fragranced. I would recommend if you’re after a good cleanser, I haven’t noticed it do anything miraculous for my skin but I do have combination skin prone to break outs and it hasn’t made them any worse!
  96. Easy on skin


    Feels nice and gentle and takes a few goes to remove all makeup
  97. Super Effective


    When I first moved to Australia, this cleanser was recommended by my GP's office and it really saved my skin. It's super affordable and you only need a tinnnnnny drop so it really lasts for months on months. I am extremely breakout prone so this did keep my skin clear. If I was experiencing a hormonal breakout, I did feel I needed something stronger at that time to actively fight the breakout. .
  98. Best gentle cleanser


    have used a lot of cleansers in the last 10 years and this is definitely my favourite, does not strip my skin or make it feel dry but definitely makes my skin feel clean and properly washed!!! I cleanse every morning and double cleanse with it every night and it has made my skin more stable.
  99. Perfect GENTLE cleanser


    I love this cleanser as a 'step one' cleanse. I use it in the morning to cleanse any night products from my skin and at night I use this cleanser FIRST and then go in for a deeper cleanse with Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12% and it's like they are made for each other. I would not recommend to use it as your deep cleanser - but it's excellent for removal of makeup and for a morning cleanse :)
  100. Perfect daily cleanser


    I've never had problems with breakouts but since about March I could hardly go a day without a new pimple forming even though I was using the same products. I started using a 50ml sample of this cleanser over a month ago and it's brought my skin pretty much back to where it was (a couple of small and easy to deal with whiteheads every now and then). It's easy and gentle to use, washes off easily,...
