Reviews For Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser Dry & Sensitive Skin

Based on 14 Reviews

Husband approved

Feels great on my skin. My husband loves it too, & he can be somewhat picky with stuff for cleaning his face, he loves this.

- Stephanie

Cleared my skin up

The first few days it was drying my skin a bit and I had to exfoliate more than usual. It's been a couple weeks now and my skin looks healthier, clearer and more balanced. I think this is my favorite cleanser.

- TJ

Perfect for Fall/Winter!

I decided to try this cleanser due to my love of Desert Essence's Thoroughly Clean face wash (it cleans wonderfully but is incredibly drying to the skin, especially in the fall/winter climate here in the dry Midwest). This Gentle Nourishing Cleanser is the perfect late-year alternative. The first ingredient listed is apple juice, so it not only smells wonderful; it cleans like charm!

- Veronica

Have not used it long enough to evaluate, however so far so good.

- Helene

Great Cleanser

I really like this cleanser. It's mild and doesn't dry out my skin. My skin feels soft after using it.

- Harlene

LOVE this cleanser

This gentle cleanser is awesome, and perfect for my aging skin. No drying effect, cleans easily and rinses off beautifully. I am a huge fan of this organic product, and appreciate the price - proving that those expensive, designer cleansers are not the way to go! I'm a huge fan.

- Molly

Works good - smells weird

Very gentle cleanser, but smells sour. My daughter wont use it because she said it smells funny.

- Cindy

Found a new daily face wash

I'm making the switch to organic skin care and decided to give this a try based on ingredients and price. I've been using it nightly for a week and can already say it's a keeper. It's gentle, doesn't strip moisture from skin, and rinses clean. It's great at removing makeup, which isn't always the case with gentle cleansers. I've used Origins cleansers in the past and this has a similar consistency and I think does just as good a job. the scent is citrusy, not my favorite but it's definitely not a bad smell. Wish this came in a larger size.

- Bessma

Great cleanser!

Love the smell and texture. Leaves my skin clean and balanced. Has also helped with breakouts!

- Ashley

Wonerful for my skin!

I searched for a long time for something that would leave my face feeling clean and soft and I finally found it. I can feel good about the ingredients and about how my skin feels, great combination!

- Joyce

Feels great!

This is the best gentle cleanser I've used in years. My skin feels so soft and clean with no tightness or icky residues. Love it!

- Joyce

best gentle cleanser--it still deep cleans!

Even my husband started using this super gentle cleanser. A deep clean without the tightness of DE clarifying cleanser. Love this, been using for four years now.
