This is my second bottle and I will be sticking with this product.
I use this product at night in the shower. With my initial experience, I did notice for the first few days my skin peeled slightly in some areas of my face. But it only lasted those first few days of use. I recommend combining the use of this product with a good moisturizer, as I can see how it could be drying to some skin types.
I have combination skin - a slightly oily tzone. Sensitive skin around my nose.
My skin has been smoother since using this. No more of those tiny clusters of bumps to pick at, especially after using their purifying facial mask once a week.
It is gel-like so if you're not careful it could slide off your fingers. And it does lather on a moist face. If it feels too slick and like it's not lathering just wet your face more.
I love this product and what it has done for my face. I am a 34 year old mother that does not wear makeup.

Do not use this if you need it to remove med-full coverage foundation and/or mascara waterproof or not as it removes virtually no makeup! I wear an all-day wear foundation and this sucks really bad at removing it. When I get out of the shower I use my cotton pads soaked in toner and there's still tons of foundation left on my face and mascara which isn't even waterproof! This also doesn't lather in the slightest! It's pure gel, like hair gel, so it slips right off your hands if you're not extremely careful. I have to use 3-4 times more then any other cleanser because of it's non-lathering and it doesn't spread well on wet skin. Use only if you wear light weight or no foundation, as it's a waste otherwise. Back to my hunt for a cleanser that will remove my foundation fully! (Had no idea this would be so difficult a task!)

    I've been using this for about a year. I love it because it lathers well but is not drying and has alpha hydroxy in it. My face always feels so clean after I use it.

    I liked it a lot at first but then after using it for an extended period of time it wasnt anything amazing. It is better than the facewash I was previously using but I still get pimples. Does seem to be better when I wash my face with it twice a day.

      Comments about Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser, 3% Alpha Hydroxy Complex, 8.5 fl oz:

      I use this before bed. It cleans pores, smells nice and leaves my skin feeling super soft. I was hesitant to change my facial regimen but wanted something more natural (but that still worked!). I also wanted something to help with anti-aging. This product is vegan and rates well on EWG's website, but honestly you don't feel like you are using an "all natural" product.

        I use this cleanser when I use my Clarisonic (which is a few times a week). Works really well and makes your skin feel wonderful after use.

        Cruelty free is a BIG reason I tried it, but the product is wonderful.

            Love it - very gentle, foams just enough. I use it together with Clarisonic Mia 2 brush to exfoliate. I have VERY sensitive skin (it dries out a lot and I have break outs too), so exfoliation is tricky for me. BUt this definitely works and doesn't cause any trouble - just glowing skin afterwards.

              Use it everyday.....love that it cleans well without stripping my combination skin. Leaves a clean feeling without being tight and the natural smell is very appealing.Also a little goes a long way :).As I've gotten older my skin is more sensitive to synthetic products,thankfully these are all natural and better yet not tested on animals.The only bad thing-I wish I could find them in my local drug store,when I run out there really is no alternative.

                  I love this cleanser! I have dry skin so i only wash my face once a day in order to prevent over drying. I use it just before bed. It leaves my skin soft and fresh smelling. I absolutely LOVE the smell! Its almost like an herbal fruity scent. Sounds odd but its yummy. I use this along with the BWC 8% AHA lotion and this combo has done wonders for my skin!

                      I had switched to healthy cruelty free products except for on my face, where I was ilusing the harshest stuff out there. I was afraid of breaking out wildly again, something I wasn't Ken to return to. This stuff is great. I'm off the nasty stuff and my skin looks great. Fantastic product, fantastic company.

                        This is a very good facial cleanser and I have tried my share of them over the years, from very expensive department store items to cheaper drugstore items. My face is probably combination, tending to get dry in the winter months. I only use this product at night time and I do notice that sometimes my face feels tight/dry after washing, but I definitely have also noticed smaller pores and clearer skin. I also have noticed less occasional breakouts since I've started using this, and I tend to get the cystic pimples. I am also happy that it contains no objectionable ingredients.
