How to Use
Rated 4.46 out of 5 stars
I received a sample size of this product in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and just loved using it so much that I decided I needed to buy the full size product! The price was a lot cheaper than I thought it was going to be and that was a pleasant surprise when I went to my local Ulta.
It makes my face feel really fresh and it really is gentle on my very fair sensitive skin. It doesn't make my face red or sensitive and doesn't make me break out! I use it every morning in the shower; the directions recommend using 2 pumps but I feel like I only really need one. The smell could be considered strong for some people but I find it really pleasant and sweet, so if you don't like strong fragrances this might not be for you.
The only downside? This cleanser isn't very moisturizing and because I already have dry skin, it tends to dry it out even more after use. However, I always use a face moisturizer after I shower and the slight extra dryness doesn't end up being a deal breaker. I feel like how good the cleanser feels outweighs the slight dryness when I'm already using a moisturizer after the fact; AND it's not the type of dryness that doesn't respond to moisturizer. At first I was using another sample moisturizer from the same Ipsy bag but I just started using Kinship's own Marshmellow moisturizer and so far it works amazing well with the cleanser, I'm honestly in love.
I bought this because I was hoping for gentle exfoliation during cleansing without my dry skin being super stripped afterwards, but this really doesn't feel like it actually cleans my skin at all. While I don't feel stripped, my skin also doesn't feel clean when I wash this off, I think due to the oil in it leaving some residue that gets left on your face. It was the only new thing to my routine and I kept getting little pimples on my cheeks and face that cleared up when I started to use a different cleanser.

I like the smell and it removes my makeup easily. My skin did feel softer after the first use. It's a runnier substance so you can't easily use your fingertips to apply. It's the type you need to put in your palm and lather before applying to your face. Other than that, I had no complaints. It does the job, it's gentle and it smells pleasant.

I love this cleanser! I use an oil cleanser first (in the evenings only), and this cleanser is my second cleanse (or only cleanse in the morning). I did find the scent strong at first, but now that I am used to it, I really like it. It is not at all stripping and leaves my skin feeling so soft. My skin is acne-prone, sensitive, oily, and dehydration-prone (really has it all), and this didn't cause any break-outs, dryness, excessive oiliness, or allergic skin reactions for me.

I liked it at first, came in an Ipsy bag. I've been using the cleanser and moisturizer for about 3 and a half months and it's breaking my skin out bad. Face masks don't help and I've always had breakouts by the mouth due to them but this cleanser made my forehead break out bad and caused dryness. Love that it's cruelty free, vegan and natural ingredients but it just didn't work for me
nb from USA
this cleanser is my go-to!! i love how gentle it is and the smell of it. i have sensitive skin and occasional little bumps and my forehead and this helps to clear the bumps without drying or being too harsh. it's a big size for a great price!
Laur from Cali
I have dry skin and I enjoyed it. It's a good daily cleanser. It didn't really add to the appearance of my skin, so that is why I give 4 stars.
xx from us
I love almost everything about it! The texture, smell, feeling, ingredients, etc. but I was so sad to find out that it dried my skin out! I have dry skin, eczema, rosacea, and keratosis pilaris. so it's not wonder that I dried out, I can only use non lathering cleansers. But I LOVE everything else about it! Definitely buy if you have normal-oily skin ^?^

I used this for a while before I started to notice that my face started getting dry flaky patches that wouldn't go away. I stopped using this cleanser and my face returned to normal.
Vic from Montana
I have tried so many cleansers in my 33 years. This is the best cleanser for my skin. I have dry skin and I live in a dry climate. This doesn't strip me of whatever moisture This climate leaves in my skin. I love it so much! It is gentle enough for use day and night. I am not a double cleansing type of gal, so perhaps if you are, you may find this to be stripping. I also have seborrheic dermatitis and this doesn't cause flare-ups. I am also using retinol and it doesn't cause any irritation to my skin. Keep in mind, what works for my skin might not work for others, but I always recommend this cleanser.
Alli Doll from Scottsdale AZ
This product is amazing. I feel that people reviewing this product low are used to foaming cleansers and this is not one. This product works best on a dry or slightly damp skin like an oil cleanser and even removes me mascara. It's my number one because it cleans out my pores without even needing a wash cloth. Also, I am sensitive to smell but love that it smells like fruit. :)

This cleaner has a very strong smell so if you're sensitive to smells or don't want scented skincare, this is DEFINITELY not for you. It also really doesn't feel like it's doing much for my skin, I don't know how well it cleans my face. I also have developed some new acne on my face since starting to use this cleanser. It's not necessarily caused by the cleanser but it did develop after I used this cleanser a few times, nothing else changed. Overall I don't think I'd recommend this cleanser.
Solarhaven from Wisconsin
I have never had a cleanser make my skin feel so amazing after one use! My moisturizer absorbs better after this cleanser. I'm definitely buying this again.

I don't know why I decided to try this but I'm glad I did. Although it doesn't lather, it's still easy to use. The scent makes me feel like I'm getting a spa treatment every time I use it. I haven't found it drying on my combination skin.
Val from Saint louis
I have super sensitive skin, prone to rosacea, but also combo so it's difficult to find a cleanser with that balance. This one does the trick AND smells amazing. Combine that with ethical practices, packaging, and ingredients and I think you'll agree this is a wonderful product.

This was an OK cleaner but I would not purchase again

if you are on the fence about this product ,try it. I had clear skin growing up, when I was 27 I had a surgery that changed my hormonal structure and have had acne ever since. Bought this and couldn't wait to try it. Me and a friend slathered up our faces and omg! I have had no new breakouts since using this day and night, my skin texture is better as well as reduced oil output.I love it so much I bought the moisturizer and aha pads too! Key things to remember though: 1. It's enzyme so your face may peel the first few days. 2. It's lotion like, don't pump in your hands,rub them together then go for the face. I pump twice then dab large globs on my face and then rub in. 3: wet your face with hot water rinse your face with cool water. 4: as counter productive as it sounds for those with acne, moisturize. I recommend the kinship one but any will do so long as it doesnt have pore clogging ingredients 5. Every person is different ,what works for me may not for you. If it works great! If not, that's ok too. Keep experimenting till you find something that does. Either way you are beautiful and loved just the way you are right now.

Tried using it for a while but wow this is so drying! If you have dry skin already, stay clear. It also never fully removed all my makeup. Only pro was that it smelled nice but i'd rather have a cleanser that works and isn't drying.
Paige from Illinois
I love this! It's super gentle on my skin, but melts away dirt, oil and makeup effectively. I like that it has a pump too. I have combo-dry skin and this cleanser makes my skin feel clean, but not stripped.
Nickolette from Pennsylvania
I bought this cleanser and their moisturizer together on a whim after hearing about it a YouTube video. I didn't have any high expectations for either one going into it, but oh my I am I so impressed and happy I chose to pick these up! This cleanser is gentle and effective without stripping your skin and it has great ingredients with a nice, light fragrance as well. I am excited to try out more products from this brand and recently stocked up on back ups for both of them!
Caitlin from Dallas, TX
I love this cleanser so much. I have combination skin, and this cleanser leaves my face feeling so nourished and supple without being over-stripping. It's the perfect second cleanser in my double cleanse. Also- it smells like a tropical smoothie! I will continue to repurchase!
Reed from Memphis, TN
I love love love this product. I bought it as a replacement for a hard to find a gentle enzyme cleanser, and I was not disappointed. It doesn't break me out or irritate my skin.
