This is gel like and very gentle to any skin. It cleanses well and never strips your skin

Not the best


I bought this upon reading amazing reviews and great recommendations but I feel like in comparison to other cleansers it just didn't quite do the job of giving my face a proper clean.
  1. Amazing


    This is gel like and very gentle to any skin. It cleanses well and never strips your skin
  2. amazing cleanser


    verified purchaser
    love this, I find it very light and helps to clean my makeup.
  3. Amazing for all skin types


    verified purchaser
    I have a combined skin and i find this is soooo good on my skin. this is not harsh at all but cleans really well. Ive stopped exfoliating after using the product!
  4. Must have!


    verified purchaser
    This is by far my must have product. I have really combination skin, it's really quick to go oily if I use the wrong products but also quick to go dry and flakey in winter and breakout if I use harsh products. This cleanser has been amazing for taking of makeup, without drying out my skin. It's so gentle. I have acne prone skin and this has helped clear it and maintain it sooo well. I actually c...

  5. Fantastic


    verified purchaser
    I like this gentle cleanser as it thoroughly cleanses my sensitive irritated skin without leaving it tight or dehydrated. It has a nice light scent and foams up nicely.
  6. super gentle


    Really lovely foaming cleanser. I use this in the morning and it gives my skin a great clean in the morning! Really wonderful brand and range!
  7. Great value daily cleanser


    verified purchaser
    I use this cleanser twice daily, it's gentle on my skin and works well to remove light make up.
    I've suffered with acne and breakouts a lot so I'm very cautious what I use, I've been using this product for a couple of years now and works in will with all my actives as it's not too stimulating.
  8. Not the best


    I bought this upon reading amazing reviews and great recommendations but I feel like in comparison to other cleansers it just didn't quite do the job of giving my face a proper clean.
  9. Must have


    I've purchased this cleanser twice and love it! It's great value, you get a lot of product, it cleans without leaving my skin tight or dry and is not strongly fragranced. Highly recommend if you have normal/dry skin.
  10. Good value


    verified purchaser
    I have been using this cleanser every morning and night for a few weeks now and I am impressed. I like how it doesn’t leave my skin feeling too dry. Will be repurchasing:
  11. Pricey but effective!


    This is soo good, does not dry out my skin at all yet cleans it so well! It leaves my dry areas hydrated and doesn't make my skin more oily, loveee this new favourite cleanser
  12. Favourite so far


    This is my favourite cleanser I have used just far. I have combination skin and it’s great with the oily parts without drying out the normal/dry areas. I’ve tried a few other cleansers, mainly samples, and none of them made my skin feel and look like this one. It lasts me for ages due to the size of the bottle and small portion I need.
  13. Does the job


    I have been using this for about a year. I find that it does a great job of cleaning your face without leaving a residue, which I hate. In summer I find it perfect for my normal skin however in winter I notice that I need to do the rest of my skincare immediately so my skin doesn't dry out. A little goes a long way and it is very affordable. I'll keep using this in summer but will look for a gentl...

  14. Good for make up removal


    Good for make up removal, nice for all skin types. Last a long time as well.
  15. Just ok


    This is OK. I have combination skin. This felt nice on but I noticed it didn't really get my skin completely clean, even with a double cleanse. It is very gentle though.
  16. Good gentle cleanser


    Very happy with this cleanser. I have mature skin but still oily in the t zone and this cleans well and doesn’t leave my skin tight or dry. I alternate this one with the lactic cleanser. Good products and good price.
  17. Nice enough


    A little does go a long way, and this product does last a long time. Though I'm not sure what additional value I get from this, compared say to a chemist brand cleanser designed for sensitive skin. I have used skinstitut gentle cleanser on/off for some time, and I have no negatives to say about it. But I do think once my current bottle runs out, I will be looking for a gentle cleanser that offers ...

  18. Effective cleanser


    This is an effective, nice, gel to light foaming cleanser which works well to remove makeup and freshen the skin as a second cleanse. I think that it is a dupe for the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser for sure. I started to use this cleanse during a huge hormonal break out and it's remained gentle and effective.
  19. Easy, Breezy, Beautiful


    Has been my cleanser for the last few years now. Love how much you get and how far it goes. Always leaves my face feeling really clean and refreshed. Highly recommend.
  20. Gentle cleanser, great price, doesn't strip moisture


    I really like this cleanser.
    It's a great price (please don't ever change!)
    I have normal to dry skin where my skin can feel totally stripped of moisture after I cleanse, but this cleanser doesn't leave me with that feeling, which is what I've been searching for! Removes make up well too.
  21. Absolutely Love this Product


    I was introduced to this product when I went in for a skin appointment at an ‘Australian Skin Clinic’. That was 2 years ago now and I haven’t looked back. I now use a lot of products from the skinstitut range and I love all of them. I have very sensitive skin and generally reactive with itching, eczema or a burning feeling to many skincare products I have tried samples of, but never with skinstitu...

  22. Perfect - can't wait to repurchase


    I have been looking for a new regular cleanser for a while and this one is the perfect mix of what I look for. It's gentle, provides a deep clean and is perfect for controlling my oily skin.
    I think this product could be good for any skin type - it doesn't leave my skin dry or tight and that's something I always look for
  23. Best Cleanser Ever


    This is by far the best cleanser I've ever used and don't see myself ever trying something new. I've struggled with acne for around 10 years and I felt this made a big difference because its super gentle and doesn't dry my skin out at all. Its also great at getting makeup off and gentle enough to use on the eyes. The bottle lasts for ages too!
  24. Great product


    Im loving this gentle cleanser, its as described gentle yet effective.
    Ill definitely be reordering this product.
  25. A nice cleanser


    This was so calming on my skin, it a nice gentle cleanser (hence the name) that does the job well. It didnt remove all my make up though so had to often do a double cleanse
  26. Great basic cleanser


    Great basic simple cleanser. Does not aggravate dry skin or overly dry skin.
    Love it!
  27. My go to cleanser!!


    This is definitely my go to cleanser, it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Gentle on the skin and not harsh like other products I’ve used. I definitely notice a difference in my skin when using this product. Definitely worth the money $$
  28. So far, so good


    I've been using this product for about a week now and it has grown on me each time I use it. The scent is nice enough and it leaves your skin feeling clean without that tight sensation. A little goes a long way too!
  29. Feeling fresh but strong


    I went looking for a gentle cleanser after having some sensitive skin patches on my face. I settled on this product for price and reviews. I love how little product I need to use (literally a pea size!) however after a cleanse my skin feels dry and tight - nothing a little moisturiser can't fix but not the feeling I'd expect from a gentle cleanser. I'm still using the product and still get this fe...

  30. Awesome gentle cleanser


    Awesome introduction to a skincare routine for a newbie like myself! Gentle and non-irritating and doesn’t smell heavily of any fragrance and left my skin fresh -I even convinced my boyfriend to start using it.
  31. A bargain


    A little goes a VERY long way with this product. The tiniest of a pea-size amount will spread and go a very long way for the face and neck. The texture is great, it does not foam up but rather lather up into a gentle texture and the smell is wonderful.
    It doesn't leave the skin feeling dry or tight afterwards and it removes dirt, and the remainder of makeup off quite well. I massage it into ...

  33. Best gentle cleanser


    I love this product my skin feels clean and fresh without over drying best love the price
  34. Best cleanser


    This product is by far one of my favourite cleaners. It is super gentle, I do have sensitive skin, and have no issues with this cleanser. It really does get all the makeup out, and the size of the bottle is great.
  35. Best Cleanser EVER!

    Renae D

    I was recommended this product from a friend and have been using it for over a year now. Great everyday cleanser! Removes make-up easily and cleared my skin in just a few uses.
  36. All round good cleanser


    I love this cleanser, most likely the best I've used and I have tried quite a few. It is gentle on my skin but still leaves it feeling very clean. It also has a good smell.
  37. Amazing!


    This cleanser has been amazing. I had damaged my skin barrier so needed something gentle that wouldn't strip the little amount of moisture I had left in my face. This cleanser has been my saving grace! It cleans your face without stripping or leaving your skin feeling tight. Highly recommend!
  38. good, but other cheaper products do the same


    its good, its gentle, but other products achieve the same results for cheaper
  39. Best cleanser I have used


    I am on to my second bottle of this product. I absolutely love it. I love that it foams up as I feel it really gets rid of all the dirt and makeup at the end of the day. My skin looks so clean and soft after using it and I love that I can clean the eye area with this for removing mascara! I have never come across a face cleanser that is safe to use in the eye area so the fact that this one can is ...

  40. Great


    This is a very gentle cleanser for the morning. Not great at removing heavy makeup at night but my go in the mornings
  41. Great cleanser!


    Easily removes my makeup at the end of the day. Makes my skin feel clean and refreshed, a little goes a long way and the application is so nice and soothing for my combination skin
  42. My go to cleanser


    I've been using the cleanser for years now and have never felt the need to try a new product. I have combination skin and my skin always reacts to the cleanser well, no matter whether my skin is feeling dryer than usual or a little a more oily than usual. The product is a perfect size and you only need a small amount making it last ages. It lathers into your skin well, there is little to no smell ...

  43. Great cleanser


    Better for normal to dry skin but still works a treat
  44. Really Gentle


    I bought this accidentally (I wanted the glycolic cleanser instead) and didn't realise until after I used it, but i'm glad I discovered it and will be a staple in my skin care products. It's super gentle and smells refreshing and is amazing value for the size of the bottle. I'm going to buy the glycolic scrub to use a few times a week, but this is great for everyday.
  45. Good staple!


    I have been using this brand for years & the gentle cleanser is a great staple to have in your skincare regime! I use this as my first cleansing step when removing make up at night!
  46. Basic cleanser

    Jess M

    Overall a really nice gentle cleanser, however I found it worked much better when used with a Clarisonic rather than applied with hands.
  47. great everyday cleanser


    I use this every day, its a great cleanser for sensitive skin and/or for the first step in a double cleanse. I feel like its doing more than most gentle cleansers (it does have a little lactic acid in there) but I think this is a good thing as I'm getting a very mild exfoliation everyday, meaning my serums can penetrate the skin a bit better. Definitely worth a try if you're thinking about it.
  48. Great affordable cleanser


    I have been using this cleanser for the last couple months and find it’s very gentle on the skin, whilst still taking off makeup. I find a little goes a long way with this product!
  49. Use this as my every day cleanser. Super gentle on my skin


    My skin has been terrible lately. But this always keeps it at bay
  50. Good value for money


    Nice product, foams a little and gets rid of oil and makeup quite well, I use it as an in-between cleanser, Aspect is my favourite though.
    I have really sensitive skin and it doesn't react at all to this, but in saying that I don't actually know if this does anything for my skin...
  51. Gentle and effective


    I have sensitive, combination skin prone to break outs, so I was looking for a cleanser that would give a thorough clean without drying my skin out. This cleanser does exactly that. It lasts ages, the value for money is great.
  52. Great Cleanser


    Really liking this cleanser. I use 12% glycolic cleanser in the morning so wanted something a little more.. gentle.. for the evenings and this is great. Skin feels super clean and fresh even after a full face of make up all day (i remove make up with face halo first)
  53. new favourite everyday cleanser


    so gentle for my sensitive skin and really cleans without that tight feeling!
  54. Perfect Gentle Cleanser


    I have problem skin where I can be quite oily through my T-zone with congested pores but also am a bit dry and sensitive, especially in winter. I also like to wear make-up most days. I was recommended this product as more of a pre-cleanser to remove makeup, gently cleanse before exfoliating or to use in the morning for a nice canvas to start the day! A little goes a long way, doesn't strip or irri...

  55. Worth the money!


    I’ve been using skinstitut for over a year now and am loving the gentle cleanser. I’ve got normal to dry skin and it really is gentle on the skin and would work well for sensitive skin too. You really only need a pea size and works well as a double cleanser when taking your makeup off with it and then cleansing again to make sure there’s no remaining dirt/makeup and oils left on your skin. And you...

  56. Number one cleanser


    This is my all time favourite cleanser, gentle on the skin, yet still able to clear away make up and any other impurities, it never leaves my skin feeling dry or stripped of moisture.
  57. Love this cleanser!

    Eden Clark

    Was looking for a gentle everyday cleanser that isn’t drying and this product ticks all the boxes! Skin feels very clean after use without any accompanying dryness which I love! Love the smell and feel of the product also.
  58. Cleanser


    This is okay, I feel like it’s not the best as what I thought it would be. I don’t feel like my face is super clean but I am still giving it a chance to see if I notice any improvements :)
  59. Feeling fresh


    I have been using this product for a while now as i was instructed to use it for after laser care which has been amazing on my underarms but I have also been using it as a cleanser for my makeup removal. It makes my skin feel so refreshed after each use.
  60. Love this cleanser


    This is one of the only cleansers that actually gets my skin clean without drying it out or making it break out
  61. Most gentle cleanser


    I love this cleanser it gets all my make up off and makes me skin feel really clean with out drying it out. I have very oily skin and this cleanser has definitely reduced the amount of oil in my T zone. Must have!
  62. Great Cleanser


    Really gentle cleanser which is great to use in the AM for a light cleanse that doesn’t strip the skin and the price is an added bonus.
  63. Great staple cleanser


    This cleanser is great if your wanting an affordable product that does it's job, it contains great ingredients and a little goes a long way. It contains next to no fragrance and I felt it definitely maintained my skin when used in a daily routine
  64. Calming and gentle cleanser


    I have sensitive skin and this cleanser is very mild and doesn’t leave my skin red and tight feeling. It cleanses the skin leaving it smooth & refreshed. My skin feels great and doesn’t react to this at all. Great for sensitive combination skin. Definitely recommend.
  65. very gentle


    this cleanser is super super gentle and you only require a tiny bit to really get a good cleanse.
  66. Removes the day away


    I have used this cleanser for as long as I can remember, it removes 98.9% of make up, I hardly have to go in afterwards with the skinstitut microbiome micellar water - depends on how much makeup I'm wearing. It's a nice refresher in the morning to start my day and at night to remove my day. Love love love it.
  67. Favourite Cleaner


    I’ve been using this cleanser for about 4 months now and it is the perfect cleanser for me. I have extremely sensitive skin which makes it hard to find a product that can effectively remove makeup without it being too harsh on my skin. This is so gentle that I can even cleanse heavy eye makeup off with ease and no pain. I’ve also found that I’m facing less breakouts as well as less dry patches sin...

  68. Amazing product


    I love this as an everday cleanser. I use in the shower, removes all make up and leaves skin feeling amazing.
  69. Great value


    For the price of a professional cleanser this is great and doesn’t disturb the natural moisture balance of skin
  70. Gentle and Soothing


    The product is great. A little goes a long way. I use it everyday and it seems to help so far. I still have pimples pop up and it doesn’t help them much but overall it’s nice.
  71. Gentle like it says


    I bought this together with the Glycolic Scrub 14% and will alternate to the scrub after a couple of days. It is very gentle and thoroughly cleanses. Don't squeeze too much as you only need a little to cover the whole face.
  72. Great value!


    This is a really nice cleanser. It smells fresh without being overy fragranced and my skin feels clean without being tight or dry. It's great value too, and I love that it is Australian made.
  73. Skinstitut gentle cleanser


    I love all the skinstitut products. Have been using this cleanser for years and i wouldn't use anything else. I have oily skin and am prone to breakouts and this cleanser helps so much to tone down oil and deep cleanse my pores. It removes makeup really well, even waterproof mascara!
  74. Great cleanser


    I have congested, oily/dehydrated skin and I was looking for a gentle cleanser for the mornings and as my second cleanse at night. This cleanser is great - super gentle and doesn’t leave my skin tight. The first week or so it did dry me out but I knew it was my skin adjusting and now there’s no issue!
  75. Good staple


    I have oily skin and use this as one of my night cleansers because it's not too harsh, ahead of my night serums etc. However, I do find it a tad drying so I'm not sure how good it would be for people with very dry skin. It's reasonably priced and the bottle is huge.
  76. Great product


    Great very gentle cleanser, a little goes a long way.
  77. Good but maybe caused flakiness


    Good size product and a little goes a long way. Feels good to cleanse with; skin felt good immediately after rinsing.
    After a few days using, some flakiness around nose, chin, and upper lip appeared. Took a break from the cleanser and it cleared up.
  78. Love it!

    Betta 14

    Thoroughly cleanses acne-prone skin without drying - skin does not feel 'tight'. A little goes a long way and the bottle is very reasonably priced.
  79. Perfect for sensitive skin


    I have just about changed cleanser every other month since I started using cleanser as a teenager due to my sensitive skin always reacting in someway or another. I am nearly finished my second bottle of this and have no intention of stopping. It is a gentle cleanser that doesn’t make my skin go red after use twice a day, cleanses my skin perfectly and can we just acknowledge the bang for your buck...

  80. Gentle but effective!


    I loved how gentle this product was on my skin. It was perfect when I used it to take my makeup off at the end of the day.
  81. Gentle but effective on my acne prone sensitive skin


    I started using this product after developing cystic acne on my chin. I like that it doesn't cause irritation by drying out my skin too much but is effective in clearing my acne.
  82. Great for Sensitive Skin


    This is a great cleanser for sensitive skin, as it is super gentle and doesn't have any scent that may irritate you. It is a little too gentle for skin now but I would definitely recommend it to people after something like this. The bottle is huge and good in the shower for those who want a gentle cleanser for their body too.
  83. so gentle


    i have the scrub in this range and it is absolutely amazing so i had to get the face wash. i am so impressed by this and my skin feels so fresh after every use.
  84. Everyone needs this cleanser in their life


    I’ve been a long time user of this product and I couldn’t say a bad word about this cleanser if I tried. Skinstitut combines an ethical approach to Skincare combined with high quality products at an affordable rate. This combination is more often then not very hard to hard. This cleanser is no-frills. It does what it says and cleanses the skin without harsh SLS in the most effective and powerful ...

    This is my favourite cleanser to use of a morning! I’ve been using it for a few years now and love it! Gel consistently and perfect for anyone with sensitive skin.
  88. Perfect way to get squeaky clean


    Great daily cleanser to get off all the days makeup, SPF and grime. Also it does not strip or irritate my skin as i have a oily/acne-prone skin type.
  89. Great stuff!


    I can use this 2x per day and doesn't irritate or dry out my skin!
  90. 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.
  91. 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!
  92. Thorough cleanser


    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
  93. Amazing cleanser


    I use this every night and it is gentle and effective for my sensitive skin. It lasted me one year. Second buy
  94. Great choice


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

    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!

    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.

    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...
