good try


I try using it when I received a sample. My skin is very sensitive, but after using a week, I feel my skin fresh after cleansing. No more oil or dust.



Best travel size product ever!


This precleanse is really something unique. It has a great citrus smell and gets my skin super clean.

good make up remover


i really don't use this everyday as they recommend. i use this especially for a make up remover. or after i've done a super sweaty work out. helps get all the sweaty salty depsits off my face. especially if i did an outdorr run (city running, pollution, dirt) its also very gentle.

Great for removing makeup


I have an oily t-zone and wear eye makeup. This product removes everything and breaks up the oil on my face. I love it.

i'm on the fence when it comes to this product


i'm a huge fan of the daily microfoliant and the special cleansing gel, but i'm on the fence when it comes to the precleanse. i've used it off and on, and i think it makes me break out! not an *intense* breakout -- but still. i'm not a huge fan of the oily consistency of the product. i feel like the precleanse step complicates my beauty routine, and i've found that i tend to leave it out. this product does work well to remove dirt and makeup, but i feel like the cleanser and microfoliant already do a great job of that.
