Make-up remover
Tags +Gentle, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, make-up removal
I have been searching for a gentle cleanser that removes make-up. Found it!! I use white towels and would hate finding make-up still on my towels after cleansing and drying. I use HD foundation which goes deep into your pores and is somewhat of a nuisance to remove. Not anymore though now that I have been using MAC lightful cleanser. It also leaves my skin soft and dewy. Love the cleaning power and love that I don't see foundation all over my white towels. Double bonus!

Refreshingly Clean
Tags +Gentle, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, light but effective cleanser refreshing
My MAC rep in Pasadena, CA gave me a sample of this cleanser and I love it! I tried the Green Gel Cleanser but it dried me out a bit. I'm 50 on April 14th and still have acne and blemishes. This cleanser makes my skin feel great without drying or making it too oily. It's very balanced and I highly recommend it! It's light but refreshing! Try a sample and let me know if you love it!

Velvety feel
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, cleansing, leaves skin soft
I had reservations about buying this, only because the price seemed high for the size of the packaging. But the other Lightful products are so great, I gave it a try and I am so happy I did. This foams incredibly well like no other cleanser I've ever used, so it should last me a while. You only need less than 1/2 of a pea-sized amount and it will create a wonderful velvety soft lather. It feels luxurious and doesn't dry out your skin. I don't ever want to use any other cleanser other than this.

WOW-ED
Tags +Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, dull skin
I was greatly surprised by this cleanser. Ive been in need of a new skin care routine and I've been going the "organic" and "natural" route for quite some time. My skin has because kind of lackluster and dull so I knew I needed something to revive it. I was afraid to purchase this product with the fear of it over-drying my already parched skin. I was pleasantly surprised of how fresh and glowing my skin look after 3 consecutive days of using. I highly recommend.

Most refreshing cleanser!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective
I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and all I can say is WOW! It makes your skin feel squeaky clean (without stripping it of all the natural oils). I'm a skincare guru and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The Best
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, everyday use
I ONLY tried this because they were out of my norm (MAC Cremewash)! I was told I wouldn't be disappointed, and she was right! This will be my cleanser of choice from now on, along with its moisture creme (another review ;-)). I don't wear make up, but this is still a good choice for the naturalist. This product removes dirt, grit, and grime from your face but does not strip it or make it feel tight. Instead this product leaves you clean and refreshed. I haven't noticed any lightning benefits as of yet but I don't care about that. STILL, a truly amazing product.

Pretty good
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing
Smells great, foams nicely but it won't take my mascara off fully. I don't wear waterproof either. It always leaves lots of residue. Was disappointed.

AWESOME!!!!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Effective
This facewash makes your face feel CLEAN without feeling DRY. And it will last you a WHILE. You only need a pea-sized drop, IF that. It foams fantastically well. It feels like it's slicing through the dirt and grime and my face feels truly clean!

BRIGHTNESS!!!!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective
I love this cleanser!! Makes my skin feel so clean & much brighter!! Was worried at first because I got the bottle and was like I paid this much for that.... Ill go thru that in a week!! But sure enough It was worth every penny!!! I use less than a dime size amount of this product it lathers so well to a nice frothy rich lather I LOVE!! It will definitely take me awhile to use it all!! YAY!!!

Disappointing.
Tags +Foaming
It has a great smell and lathers nicely but it does not take my make up off. I don't even wear waterproof mascara and it won't take it clean off. It leaves a nasty residue.

Fast and effective!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective
This cleanser removes makeup from face and eyes very quickly and thoroughly only using about a dime-size amount. Love the cedar-like scent. The tube itself flattens early on and is a little difficult to squeeze. One of those toothpaste tube slider things should do the trick.

SQUEAKY CLEAN FOR REAL!!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, removing makeup squeaky clean skin
This cleanser is soooooo good! You have to try it! When I say that it leaves your skin "SQUEAKY" clean, I mean literally you can hear your face squeak when you clean it, BUT it is not dry. Of course you have to follow it up with your moisturizer of choice, but I am waiting to receive my lotion/toner in the same Lightful line. I have been looking for a good cleaning routine, so I have been trying a lot of different cleansers. I am certain that I have found the one!! This is the BOMB!! Try it, I PROMISE you will not regret it!!

Lightens Eyebrows
Be extremely cautious while using this around your eyes, it lightens your brows, it is a great cleanser as long as you are careful.

Superb cleanser
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective
This is one the best cleansers I have ever used. Used alone or with my Clarisonic, and it works perfectly. Make sure to use a very small amount as a little goes a long way. An overall top notch skin care product.
