Description

What It Is: Our gentlest, dreamiest cleanser yet (because just like your favorite silk cami, your face should always be washed on delicate). It melts into a lightweight, creamy milk on contact—dissolving makeup and debris while leaving skin happily cleansed, hydrated, and smooth. Oat milk (yup, it’s not just for lattes) soothes and restores dry, irritated, sensitive complexions while probiotics boost clarity, strengthen skin’s barrier, and calm redness. Along with antioxidant-rich marula oil and blackberry vinegar, it’s not only a face wash, but also a daily—and may we add, quite enjoyable—ritual to keep skin’s microbiome (the ecosystem responsible for a healthy complexion) in tip-top condition.

How to Use: Massage a quarter-size amount into dry skin, wet fingertips and continue to massage for 60 seconds, then rinse and gently pat dry. Use AM and PM.

How to Recycle: Remove the pump and throw it (along with all its pieces) in the trash. Rinse out any remaining product residue and toss the bottle in your recycling bin.*

*Before you toss anything in your recycling bin, check if the local curbside recycling program for your zip code accepts plastic items that look like our packaging. If it doesn’t, recycle it through the Versed Recycle Responsibly Program by visiting versedskin.com/no-waste.

Defective packaging

I love this product. I love it so much I’ve purchased and used 3 bottles. Unfortunately I’ve had to purchase a different gentle cleanser because of the defective packaging. A mechanism inside the pump will break and it sends shards of plastic into the product. This has happened with all 3 bottles I’ve purchased. I thought it was a fluke the first time, and continued to use it by pouring the product into my hand. Then the second bottle did it too, then the third. The plastic shards are a deal breaker for me. So sad because I genuinely LOVE this product so much. I hadn’t found a cleanser I liked this much in years :(

Okay his is Ab decent cleanser, but only if your skin has no makeup and you want just a light cleanse. I felt almost a light film on my skin, not my fave product. I’m a versed loyal buyer for reference.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was so excited to try this cleanser because I've never tried milk cleansers before. This cleansers helped clear out my acne while providing smooth and clean face. This is going to be my new favorite cleanser and I will definitely buy more in the future

I've been using this cleanser for about two months, and I haven't had a SINGLE outbreak or pimple. The description says that it's made for dry skin, but I have pretty oily skin, and it worked like magic anyways. I would like it if it was a bit cheaper, but I AM IN LOVE

Leaves skin feeling hydrated + removes all makeup

I am surprised to read the reviews here because I am obsessed with this item. Some people said it leaves a film on their face and its true you dont have a squeaky clean feel afterward instead it leaves me with very soft hydrated skin which i actually prefer. Usually my face feels so stripped and tight after I wash it but not with this. It also removes ALL of my makeup so easily including my mascara which I usually have a heck of a time getting off. I notice no smell and there is no texture in my formula. I can sometimes break out with new products and my skin has been really happy with this.

I purchased this product in July 2021 and it had tiny crystals in it. I reached out to Versed and they had me send it back and sent me a new bottle. The new bottle was great and I loved the product. I have dry, sensitive skin and it really does clean gently without over-drying. I purchased again last month and was sad to see that the bottle I bought once again has tiny crystals in it. I wish they would manufacture a consistent product so I didn't end up with a hassle every time I purchased :( The product really is good if you're up for a gamble.

Don’t like the smell too much, pump doesn’t work , I’ve tried cleaning it out but still doesn’t work , does have some grainy bits which I see people saying it’s plastic so I’m not sure if that is what it is but feels grainy on the skin , skin feels soft but product isn’t worth it in my opinion

Hi Sky, Thank you for sharing your experience with Gentle Cycle. The ingredients in the formula can sometimes crystallize. It is still perfectly okay to use, but we understand if you want to do a return or exchange with Target.

Gentle cleanser, but a little frustrating

Lucyy L. - 2 months ago

I’ve had this cleanser for a while now. When I first started using it, I wasn’t too excited with the way it left my skin. It almost felt like the product didn’t wash off completely and my face was still dirty. I hoped that it would feel a little better as I kept using it but it never really did. I didn’t even finish the bottle. I do believe it is a great cleanser for dry/sensitive skin though, just wasn’t for me.

I love the cleanser, I have incredibly sensitive skin and this product doesn’t make my skin freak out. My skin is noticeably smoother and clearer. However, the fragrance is definitely off putting and the pump on the bottle is awful. I’ve resorted to just opening it and pouring some out onto my hand. If these issues were to be fixed I’d be stoked.

Plastic pieces inside!! After three days of using it I noticed very small clear pieces of plastic in the cleanser, was super upset because I actually really like the cleanser itself but this is sketchy

Exfoliant bits are too rough

I was so excited to try this cleanser, but I just can't get past the rough exfoliating bits. I wasn't expecting anything rough in a "gentle" cleanser. They really should disclose it's more of a light scrub.

Started out really good but then I kept finding hard clumps. I saw another review that said they were plastic and I would agree even though I didn’t investigate thoroughly. They did clog the pump for me too. It quit working and the bottle was 3/4 full. I also think it was breaking me out.

I love this, my skin feels clean enough but not dry. Packaging is so cute, same with the color. The pump although it very weak, I’d recommend almost a cerave or lotion style pump. One thing though, I opened the bottle to smell it and OMG, mayonnaise is what I smelt, I thought someone like put it in the cleanser at the store, but I tasted it and it didn’t taste like mayonnaise…. Just to be sure… do not judge lol. I recommend shaking it before use because the oils and stuff seem to separate, it also rated a 100/100 on the YUKA scale. Love ❤️

Ok I’ve been using this wash for over a year now and still love it. No break outs! The only complaint is that there are little pieces of plastics in the bottle. The pump gets clogged with them and has even broke. Not sure where the plastic is coming from too.

Sharp salt/plastic type flecks in product?

Cary E - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
Started using this product a month or so ago and like the texture of it and don’t mind the smell, however, I started to notice that I have small sharp plastic like flecks in it. At first I thought maybe they were some kind of salt pieces, but they don’t seem to dissolve. I looked at reviews to see if anyone else mentioned these, and I don’t see anything, so I’m wondering if I have a faulty batch? I also agree, the pump doesn’t work at all. I have to open the bottle to get product out. Will be returning.
