ksc - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I am so glad I tried this cleanser! My usual cleanser was discontinued so I just decided to pick up a highly rated one that was labeled as clean, and wow! I wasn't expecting to my skin to look so nice from just a cleanser change. After the first use, my skin tone was noticably more even and so smooth and soft. I stared at my skin in the mirror for like 10 minutes in disbelief lol. On top of that, it didn't leave my skin feeling dry, and it didn't make me oily either! And the scent is so relaxing, BUT it's a lot stronger than it needs to be for a cleanser. If it was just lightly scented, it would be perfect.

I think it smells good but I could see how some would disagree. It cleans well and has a great texture. Your face feels so clean and fresh after. I've been using it with the vitamin c moisturizer and the hydrogel and my face is so soft the entire day. My husband noticed a difference in my skin's glow and clarity.

Allergic Reaction to the Chamomile

1 out of 5 stars
Allie - 8 months ago
If you are prone to allergies or get hay fever, know this product has chamomile and chamomile is part of the ragweed family. This made me sneeze and caused a dry red rash on my face and neck. I couldn't figure it out for the longest time and when I quit using my face cleared and no more sneezing. I looked up the ingredients and discovered the cause. Honest Beauty why would you put a common allergen in the "gentle" face wash???

I had such a bad reaction to this. I’ve tried it numerous times (separately) to see if there are other factors going on but it dries out my skin so bad. I end feeling a slight burn also and then end up with breakouts. If you have any slight dryness so not use this at all.

This product was terrible for my skin- broke out in tiny red spots all over my face and dried out my skin to the point of peeling. I didn’t think it was the facewash so I continued using it for weeks but as soon as I stopped using it my face cleared up and has been perfectly smooth and the redness has been gone ever since. Do NOT use if you don’t want your face dried out/broken out in a rash.
