The BEST!!

Have been using this product for years. LOVE it 💖 Honestly won't know what I'd do if I didn't have Pauls Choice. Highly recommend this face wash :)

Amazing!

I removed any makeup beforehand, used about as much as a 10c piece at once. It is so soft! it's like liquid velvet. Definitely made my skin feel so clean yet it doesn't make your skin feel tight or dry. Usually with normal cleansers (if you have oily skin) it'll be greasy within 10 minutes of washing your face. This didn't happen. It cleans deep into your pores and you can feel afterwards. My skin felt very light and fresh and i couldn't see any clogged pores or shininess. 10/10 will buy again.

Smells disgusting

Have only used this product for one week so hard to say if it has improved anything but it definitely doesn't strip your skin from moisture/oils The only thing I hate is the smell so far. To me it smells like vomit and I feel like I need to wash it off as soon as possible because I just can't stand the smell

This is perfect

Shifting away from high end, highly fragranced and expensive cleansers I was seeking a fragrance free effective product and this is perfect. I love this cleanser and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Removed my makeup, even the eyes, with ease and left my skin feeling clean, but not tight in the slightest. My days of searching are over, this is my go to. Less is more, increasingly reading the need to not double cleanse by experts,( not beauty therapists )and keeping my routine simple. This is my am and pm cleanser and it is paying dividends, my skin is loving it.

I have been using this for years now and together with the 2% BHA liquid, i do not get monthly breakouts anymore at all. Brilliant!

Great for makeup removal

I've tried a number of Paula's Choice cleansers, this one is my favourite. It's creamy, forms a nice lather and removes my foundation easily. It leaves my skin feeling very nice and clean. I find I can feel a bit dry after using this but once I put my Earth Sourced toner on it's fine. My one complaint it that its too drying to use more than once a day, I use this cleanser at night to take my makeup off and the Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Cleanser in the morning - that one is not as drying but doesn't remove make up as well

Holy Grail Cleanser

I've used so many cleansers in the past but never knew they could get this good! Along with PC BHA, this cleanser has made my skin completely clear. The soft feeling after this is also amazing.

My sensitive skin has never been better

I've been using this product for a couple of months, and my skin has cleared up so much. I've been getting way less pimples and obvious blackheads. I use it twice a day and lightly moisturise afterwards, and my skin it so soft! I never write reviews, but I had to say how helpful this cleanser has been for me, especially since I bought it as a random choice. Would completely recommend for anyone with sensitive oily/combination skin

Caused clogged pores

1

I don't find this product good for me who have acne prone skin. I have been using Paula's Choice for quite number of years and really grateful for the products range I use have cleared my acnes. For cleanser I usually use Clear Pore Normalising Cleanser. Few months back it was out of stock so I ordered this Balanced Cleanser. Sadly, it doesn't cleanses as clean as Clear Cleanser and caused me to have clogged pores. I will never order this Balance Cleanser ever again.
