My Experience :

I have been using this cleansing gel for a few months now and I quite like it. It is a light weight clear face wash that is great for day to day usage. It also removes a whole lot of makeup. I however prefer to use it after I have removed maximum makeup using cleansing milk. The cleansing gel foams up nicely. It has never irritated my skin. Infact, my skin feels quite refreshed after using it.

A little goes a long way. I think I’d takle 4-5 months to finish up the bottle.

It does not dry out my normal-dry skin but I do feel the need to apply moisturizer after using it. By no means my skin feel stretchy or uncomfortable after washing my face with this cleansing gel.

It has a light herbaly fragrance, which I quite like.

It does not leave any residue behind, and washes off completely.

The cleansing gel comes with a very soft face brush. It’s so gentle on skin. Sometimes, I just use this face brush and a cleanser to remove my makeup and the combination is great. The brush comes with a cap , which I totally love about it. The SA mentioned that the brush would help get rid of blackheads. Well, I don’t think so. The brush is very very soft and it helps in dissolving the makeup or doing gentle cleansing of skin on day to day basis.  I still love this brush a lot.

The packaging is nice. It comes in a plastic bottle and has a pump dispenser. Very convenient.

Overall, I like this cleanser a tad bit more than the L’occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam. Only because I feel this is more suited for my normal – dry skin. But I like both the face washes and I’d pick either on any given day. 🙂

  1. Rati, good marning 🙂
    I just finished up a bottle of Loccitane ka riz rice cleanser n ws thinking which one to get now 😐
    this one looks interesting to me 😀 Me put this on my list 🙂

    1. Good morning Nupur, Rati!!! 🙂
      Nupur, how is that Rice cleanser? I toh see it n keep it back everytime I go there. The SA has given me up as a lost cause 😛

  2. Rati, it sounds awesome. The brightening foam is on my wishlist since SO long. So that is better for combi skin?
    Pics r awesome n tempting 🙂

  3. I want that brush Rati! It would be so nice to just keep brushing my face with it before going to sleep! I used to have one like that when I was a kid and wouldnt go to sleep unless my mum stroked my face with it…LOL
    Is this cleanser strictly for dry skin? I love the stretchy feel after I wash my face with a cleanser 🙂

    1. hihihih… no this is not strictly for dry skin. but i wouldn’t suggest it to those with oily skin. I feel the foaming cleanser would do a better job. 🙂

  4. wow.. i like that brush.. so cute.. want to try a loccitane product for my face.. which one to go for my sensitive combi to oily skin?? :/

  5. you’ve gotten me all enthu abt cleansing milk now *headbang*. I have always felt cleansing milk might work better on my face than regular face wash. But this bottle looks so refreshing and one will feel like using it.

    (btw guys i am so much of a believer that if something suited u 1 year ago its not necessary that it will suit you now). i was so kicked abt Lotus Nutranite night cream many months ago becos it was working so well. I stopped using it God knows why and I used it again after a while recently and within 2 days i got pimples. I am back to the hunt for a nice night cream and serum. I so badly want to use a nice night cream and also a serum at night (if required after using a nice cream). Maybe i will try Vichy after all if I dont find anything cheaper.

  6. Hi.. thanx for the review.. i really want to try this facial cleaner, according to ur review it wld definitely suit my skin type… bt since i wld b trying this for the first time i was wondering if u get a smaller travel size bottle of this..
