It’s a lightweight gel cleanser that has a light lather that smells a little like lavender and tropical fruit. I have no idea why I always get tropics out of it. Nobody else does, so I think my nose is engaging in some wishful thinking! It cleans effectively and quickly; directions state to work into moistened skin for thirty seconds and then rinse. There is no tight feeling left behind, and my skin doesn’t feel parched either. I just feel clean and refreshed!
For me, it does all the cleansing that I need. It gets rid of dirt and grime and any foundation/tinted moisturizer I’ve worn that day. This won’t breakdown heavy eye/lip makeup, but in my experience, gentle cleansers rarely do as that is not what they’re designed for. (I personally use something targeted for makeup to do a preliminary/makeup cleanse, and then follow-up with a gentler cleanser.) I was surprised it removed my foundation so well, though, but the toner-test (take a cotton pad with toner and see if your cleanser missed any makeup) showed nothing was left behind.
