My go to facewash!

I see this cleanser is out of stock.. NOOOOO! This is my go to cleanser now for a few years. It makes my skin soft and gives hydration but not too much to irritate my acne prone skin. Hopefully this isn't out of stock for too long.

Great Non-Irritating Product

This is a great hydrating cleanser. It cleans make up off well and hydrates at the same time. A little goes a long way which is a plus!

Best Product Ever!!

I have used this product for over a year and a half and it is the best skin care product I have ever used. I have acne prone, sensitive and dry skin. It is really difficult to find products that work for my skin. The acne products dry my skin out so bad, and the products for dry skin make my skin break out. Paula's choice products are a life saver and a game changer. I can not express enough how amazing they are. My skin has cleared up and stays clear, even through the monthly hormone changes. I ran out of this cleanser last month, and decided to go get a cleanser from the drug store instead. BAD CHOICE! My skin immediately started breaking out and stayed broke out for three weeks until I finally ordered more of this cleanser. I will never be without it again!!!

Beautiful, gentle foaming cleanser.

One of the better cleansers out there. My skin is acne prone, easily congested, sensitive, dehydrated and oily... every face cleanser that I've used left my skin feeling tight and dry. This one didn't, it gives me a lovely soft foam that cleanses well. I feel like many products work better on my skin, whenever I'm using this cleanser, it's so gentle that I would say it actually soothes my skin. My face doesn't get as oily anymore which is nice.

Favorite cleanser ever

5

I didn't use a cleanser before starting my PC skin regimine. I was absolutely clueless when it came to skincare - I didn't even own a moisterizer until two years ago at the age of 22. Add smoking for 6 years, and lack of sleep due to twins and a toddler... You can imagine how tired and dull my skin became. The PC regimine I started a month ago has given me the best skin of my life and I start with this cleanser! It makes my combo skin feel so soft and smooth and even and clean, NOT tight and squeaky at all!

Best for delicate morning cleanse and afternoon refreshing. I have extremely sensitive skin + Rosacea. I wish Paula would do a body wash with this formula.

My favourite cleanser at last

5

A much-improved version of the Resist cleanser. I found the original didn't clean my skin well enough but now that there that there is this version for combination skin, it's become my go-to cleanser. Only use a small amount as it becomes a creamy soft lather as you rub it on your skin and you'll only waste it otherwise. My skin feels great after rinsing and this cleanser fits in so well with my skin routine that I now have fewer blackheads, if any.
