What experts liked

Dermatologist recommended. Suitable for acne-prone skin. Gently cleanses and moisturizes skin.
- Prevention
This cleanser protects the skin's barrier but hydrates while cleansing, helping the skin lock in moisture after use, especially when followed with a hydrating moisturizer.
- Byrdie
It says 'normal to dry skin' on its packaging, but I have skin on the oiler side and still enjoy using this (it's important to remember oily skin needs hydration too!). It's fragrance-free, features ceramides and hyaluronic acid in its ingredients list, and has a lovely, silky smooth texture.
- Bustle
This face wash was the first product I used that actually left my skin feeling moisturized, meaning that even if I accidentally forget to apply face cream before bed, I won't wake up with dry flakes and red, itchy spots.
- Popsugar
A good value for a gel-type cleanser that hydrates well.
- BestReviews

What experts didn't like

Lotion consistency doesn’t always provide that “squeaky clean” feeling, like gel cleansers do.
- Prevention
Doesn't do a great job of removing make-up.
