    It’s ok, definitely nothing special for the price.

    This cleanser is VERY watery & ‘slippery’ feeling. I use it as my second cleanse on days I wear makeup following the cleansing emulsion. Even after a second cleanse , there is still some sediment on my toning cloth. I would definitely not recommend this as a stand-alone cleanser to remove makeup or SPF. I don’t necessarily find it moisturizing, but I wouldn’t say it’s stripping either. On a positive note, it’s definitely gentle.

    Best Make-up Removing Cleanser

    I love this cleanser. I use it at night to wash off my mascara. My skin feels clean without feeling overly-dry or irritated.

    The Perfect Daily Cleanser

    I've been using Renee Rouleau products for about 4 years now and this is the perfect cleanser! My skin is on the dryer side and I've never been able to use a gel cleaner without my skin feeling completely parched but cream cleansers just don't feel cleansing enough. Moisture Protecting Cleanser starts out as a gel but then gets creamy as it lathers so it's the best of both worlds! I follow with toner, serum and moisturizer and my skin never feels parched. I use this twice a day and follow with the mint buffing beads a couple of times a week.
