WOW.. I Didn't Expect This
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective
I have a hard time with my face cleansers. I have sensitive skin and it's combination so I can never find something that cleans and doesn't dry me out. The last product I had, left my face broken out horribly and I was very embarrassed. I doubted even MAC could help me. Then I started using this Cleanser, and I was so surprised how my face felt afterwards. It smelled wonderful and my face felt light. Almost airy. Like it wasn't ever clean before now. It was so amazing. I've been using this product for almost a week. I use it every night before bed (sometimes to take my makeup off too) and every day before I get ready for my daily makeup routine. My face has not only cleared up my breakout, but my pores are less noticeable, my skin is more even toned and my dry spots stay moisturized while my oily spots don't get out of control. I will never use another Cleanser again. This product is truly wonderful.

Amazing- acne free
Tags +Effective, acne free
Okay, ive had mediam-severe acne for 3-4 years. i break out so easily, by simple things, a few products have been good for my skin, but when i started using this product, in about a week, i am basically acne free. i highly recommend this product, ive seen some bad reviews on this one, so i dont know if some skin types are more sensitive to this product, but it works fantastic for me. Although, it does leave a film i dont like, but i can live with it. :)

I brought the travel size and I wear makeup 5 times a week at work, full face and I wanted to find something that will remove my makeup completely besides makeup wipes. Well it worked. I am so excited I am buying the full size tomorrow.

nice cleanser
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective, gentle cleansing
I like this cleanser. It's super gentle which is great for my combination skin because it cleans and refreshes without drying my skin out too much. I use it with the oil control moisturizer twice a day (morning and night) and my skin stay oil free and soft all day. The only downer is that I'm not sure how great it is for acne. I have a little 'under the skin' acne and i think the cleanser is helping a little with it but there's definitely still some problem areas. On the plus side - since I started using this product two weeks ago I haven't had any new breakouts which is amazing for me. If you're thinking about trying it, i would definitely recommend it. Its worth its price, which isn't that bad for MAC.

Perfect!!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Refreshing, Effective
This cleanser is so perfect for me. I can see that the oil on my face is more controlled, especially using the oil control lotion after. I barely have to blot through out the day anymore! It feels so fresh and the scent is amazing. Defiantly recommend for anyone with oily sensitive skin!

Fresh cleanser
Tags +Foaming, Refreshing, Effective, combination-oily skin liquid foundation wearers
I purchased this cleanser and the MAC water-charged moisture gel cream moisturizer and I love them both. I typically only wear MAC makeup, so I thought, I should try their cleansers. I have combination-oily skin and have been using the green gel cleanser for about two weeks. I usually have 2-3 blemishes but since using this cleanser along with the gel cream, my skin has become perfectly smooth and clear. It is VERY drying at first, but your skin will adjust, trust me. I would definitely recommend this cleanser to those who wear the studio fix fluid (which I also purchased about 3 weeks ago). LOVE IT!

Fresh and Clean!!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Refreshing, Effective, acne
I am a grown woman with oily skin with dry patches, green gel is magic!! It is inexpensive and easy as slapping it on and rinsing it right off. Nothing worked to rid me of random pimples and blotches before. I have used this product for a while and don't plan on stopping.

Great for ALL skin types!

Leaves skin feeling PERFECT! I don't have sensitive skin, but when I use this product, I can tell it's gentle on skin, but a warrior on dirt and grime. Cleans pores and skin, and leaves your face feeling amazing! Doesn't dry out oily skin nor does it moisturize dry skin; it leaves the perfect balance of moisture, radiance, and smoothness! Use a moisturizer after using this cleanser, and it leaves your skin feeling flawless! Cleared up my skin, and I've heard from many others it's cleared theirs as well! TOTALLY worth the cost!

Excellent cleanser
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Effective
This is a really great cleanser. It removes make-up, dirt and oil effectively, but doesn't strip skin of its natural moisture. I have combination skin that's acne- prone in the oily areas, and this really works to balance my skin. Good- sized bottle; an excellent value for the money! I love the light fragrance, too!

Swear by it!
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective, difficult/sensitive skin
I have combination skin, it gets really dry easily, but if i use anything for dry skin it makes my skin super oily! And both make my skin break out, ive tried a ton of cleansers and this is the only one that works. I will try something else because it sounds like a good idea, my skin totally disagrees with it, the first time i use the mac green gel cleanser it clears up my skin and restores it's balance. Super simple lightweight cleanser, and it works for the most difficult skin types!

DISSAPOINTING
I had heard about this skin cleanser from various friends thinking it would be amazing! Was I wrong! It totally stripped and dehydrated my skin and left it old and withering! It got rid of my makeup but left me having to use the heaviest duty moisturizer I could find, my skin type is combination oily and it still dehydrated my skin beyond repair! Don't buy this! Buy the cleanse off oil instead!

I was not too satisfied with this cleanser. I cleanses really well, just started to dry out my skin especially around my nose and mouth. I switched to the cremewash and am so much more satisfied.

I did not like this
I was not impressed with this cleanser. I found it to be extremely runny and was not effective at cleansing my skin. I ended up using more product than necessary to cleanse my face effectively. I can't recommend this.
On a positive note, the scent was pleasant and it is a nice shade of green.

Good for general cleansing
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing
I decided to buy this after a guy at the Mac counter insisted that I take a sample. I thought, "Yeah, whatever. Why would I buy a cleanser from Mac?" However, after trying it for a week, I've noticed my skin seemed much happier. It decreased my redness and oily-ness without drying out my skin. I've been using it for about 2 months now and my skin is close to the best it's ever been. My only complaint is that it is NOT good for removing makeup. If I try to remove my makeup with this it takes 2-3 tries before I get it all off. However, this is a great cleanser to start the day with.
