I have to admit, when first trying this product I was a bit wary of its exfoliating properties (papaya enzymes) as many cleansers and other products that use this ingredient were instantly drying to my skin and then went on to leave much irritation if I braved using the item for a long time. Not so with this, The papaya is very mild and with this being a very easy-to-rinse formula, I feel that there is next to no chance of accidentally leaving the product on too long and having it overdo its resurfacing job. My skin is left instead of feeling instantly dry, instantly smooth and soft, and the breakout and congestion I was having when I first began using the product really healed quickly within a few days of twice daily cleanses with this. I love the super lightweight, yet cushy, texture of the aptly called "creamy gel" formula and wish that more brands would formulate cleansers in this texture. It is the perfect combination where try gels can feel either too sticky or sometimes drying and balms and creamy cleansers may feel too thick and hard to spread or rinse completely. This texture, on the other hand, is perfect. The one thing I don't love is the scent. Most of the time citrus scents are not my favorite, and while I'm happy this isn't strong at all, the bitter orange scent (probably with some hints of the papaya in there too) is just not something I love. But overall, I really like this cleanser.
Great Enzymatic Cleanser
I really love the soft scent and texture of this cleanser. Because enzymatic products can dry out my already dry skin, I don’t use this every day, but two or three times a week as a second cleanse works well.
Fresh Morning Cleanse
I use the cleanser as a follow-up to my morning cleansing balm (double cleanse). It has a lovely citrusy & refreshing scent & feel. For reference, I’m mixed race in my 40s with sensitive combination skin.
