love it...Love it....I read all the reviews and I didn't think a cleanser could ever live up to the hype, but I decided to get it anyway, and I'm so glad I did....I prefer to use is as a face mask a couple of times a week instead of a cleanser, though (even though it's also amazing as a cleanser!).

LOVE IT...It's ok...It is a cleanser I would recomend as long as you are happy with a non foaming cleanser (and even though this product doesn't foam it does what it is suppose to do) and are ok without a more masculine scent....Although I like spherical beads, the creamy texture of this facial cleanser surpassed my expectations for a cleanser and made my skin feel even cleaner than when I use other cleansers with spherical beads.

HOLY GRAIL!...Non drying!...I've combination skin, and I was already using the Vinoperfect line at night to get rid of acne scars, but a Caudalie facialist recommended I switch to using Vinopure during the day (I use the toner and serum) and it has made a difference in just a week....I love this, I've been searching high and low for a toner on the Clean at Sephora list, after I realized my beloved Beauty Water was not.

Not only will the natural salicylic acid unclog oil that’s trapped inside pores, but it will also act as an exfoliator to slough away dead skin cells and smooth the look of skin’s overall texture. Rest assured, this powerful formula is non-irritating and safe for sensitive skin, thanks to grape water and rosewater, which soothe irritation and enhance your glow. The formula is further enriched with antioxidant grape seed polyphenols that prevent oil from oxidizing, or turning black. Lastly, a complex of antibacterial, fragrance-free and noncomedogenic essential oils deliver purifying, clarifying, and calming benefits to the skin. Best for oily to combination skin or those with hormonal breakouts, this toner diminishes the appearance of pores, smooth the look of skin texture, enhance skin clarity, and control oil production.

the best...worth it...I have sensitive dry skin that normally dries out when I use cleansers with salicylic acid but this did not dry me out (could be because of how I use it - read below) but it did clear all the little bumps I had under my skin that just looked bad when I put foundation on, and I barely get any pimples now; it has also reduced the number of blackheads on my nose....I also use the little clear stickers they have sometimes and while I do like them they also blend a little too good and they end up sticking so well after I wash my face, that I notice I put foundation on over one by accident.

bomb !...5 stars...It definitely cleans the face n takes off makeup great but I have super dry skin so this dryed my face out a lot sadly:( I still love this face wash n I just use it mayb 3 times a week n load moisturizer on after n it works out great for me :) definitely wish it was more moisturizing but I haven't broken out once so I'll keep using n loading on that moisturizer; )...I love this cleanser, it's gentle and I admit I have found it difficult to remove some mascaras but overall it's the best I have ever used it leaves my skin clean and moisturized - I still use a moisturizer as I have dry skin - The trick I have found is to leave it on your face for a minute or 2 then wash off - I have sensitive eyes this does not bother me at all

Not bad...Love it...I started using this about a month ago and would use this in the morning and the Purity cleanser at night so it can provide a smoother surface under my make up, but I found that this dried me out a little, since I already suffer from dry skin....I swear by purity cleanser from philosophy I absolutely love it so I thought why not give this a try the texture is unique and exfoliating yet gentle as it claims but still leaves behind a good amount of makeup, maybe better for after cleansing 1st.
