      I really wanted to LOVE this product because I do love the Calendula Toner. However, this face wash does not contain the amount of Calendula extract as the toner. That's just a hunch. I obviously haven't scientifically tested it. I have extremely sensitive skin (possibly rosacea - awaiting lab tests), and it is very gentle. By the way, isn't 'effect' and 'performance' essentially the same thing lol? So, it's gentle enough for my very sensitive skin. The value is ok for what it is. Not too expensive. Not a bargain either. I think, though you need too much gel to clean the whole face. I.e, it doesn't foam as much. BUT, it's a sulfate free product so that may be the trade-off. If it is, then I'm ok using a bit more than other foaming cleansers. Also, it's Paraben-Free. Dear Kiehl's, PLEASE eliminate ALL parabens. You were originally an apothecary/pharmacy. Go back to your roots of all natural things. There are more natural preservatives than Parabens now. Ok, rant over. Sorry. It washes off cleanly and my face feels fresh and clean. It's a very good cleanser to pair with the Calendula Toner. It's just not a great one, in my humble opinion. PS, I can't decide if I like the pump or not. Part of me says "(heck) yeah!" It's easy to use and I don't have to open and close it during the shower. But, once it gets to the bottom - the middle even - of the bottle, you have to hold it at a very awkward position. And, having a pump means it's never truly 100% closed, so germs and bacteria can sneak their way in. Most of my cleansers had caps/lids, so just good for thought. Again, overall, a very good product to pair with Calendula cleanser. Ok I promise this is all: I probably would only buy this if I paired the Calendula Cleanser and Toner. If you're strictly looking for an 'independent' cleanser, you may want to look somewhere else. Although, I think it's still very good enough to use on its own if that's what you're after. It's optimal as a pairing, though.

      I explained to the sales associate that I have oily skin in my T zone and lately dry cheeks due to winter, so I was looking for a moisturizer. She gave tiny samples of the lotions ( none are worth mentioning based on greasy result). I also mentioned that I needed a facial cleanser. She recommended this product. It was horrible..This was my first purchase from this store. I also tested conditioners in the past that worked, but I never felt like it was worth the price to replace my Biolage ( and now Nexxus ) conditioner. Anyway, this cleanser lathers nicely, but it is DRYING! It did not cause my recently dry cheeks to flake or anything, but the resulting texture of my skin was PARCHED. I felt like if I went into the cold my skin would crack in half. I'm sure with moisturizer my skin would be fine, but I was looking for a nourishing cleanser. I needed one that would balance my oily and dry spots. My skin has always been extremely oily in my Tzone and normal to oily everywhere else, but I was experiencing dry cheeks ( and realize now that most likely I needed daily exfoliation), Once again, this product was horrible. Even though there are no parabens, you better not get any in your eyes or near it because it burns. I will keep this product for a time when I have caked on makeup in the summer and have not been washing my face twice a day for a week. That's how stripping it is. For now, I will stick to my new more inexpensive Body Shop $49 Vitamin C Kit, and make a purchase with Aveda's Botanical Kinetics cleanser line ( I tested Aveda's cleanser and that one works FANTASTIC for the price and is worth every penny). I just wish the sales associate offered me cleansers to try as samples first like Abeda. I really don't see myself purchasing here based on my bad experience with the product. I may buy something if there is a sale or I receive a coupon. The store associate WAS nice and seemed knowledgable, though

      Loved the toner for years

      I have been using this toner for years but it just never seemed to be the right cleanser for me. Finally took the plunge and I love it especially when I'm in a hurry and don't have time for a double cleanse. It won't leave you dry but you will be clean, Follow it with this toner, I highly recommend the duo.

      Best face wash for oily skin!

      By 

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

      Easily the best face wash I've used! Received a sample and then ended up purchasing the full size. I use this twice a day and it removes all my makeup with leaving my skin feeling dry. Since I added this in to my daily Kiehl's regimen (Ultra Oil-Free toner and Moisturizer; Dark Spot Correcting Serum, Midnight Recovery Concentrate), my face is noticeably less oily. Highly recommend - a little goes a long way with this product. And it smells great!

        Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

        Best face cleanser I've ever used. I'm on my 3rd bottle, and not because it goes fast (it doesn't). No other cleanser treats my oily, sensitive skin as well as this one. This cleanser leaves my face feeling truly clean, and it doesn't dry my skin out, and the best part is it has definitely reduced my acne and even some of my scarring. Love love love this cleanser and would recommend it to anyone with oily, acne-prone skin.

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

          About a year ago, after never having issues with my skin, I started suffering from adult acne. I am incredibly hesitant to try new products as I am petrified that it will make my sensitive skin breakout. Relief is here! At the recommendation of a friend, I purchased the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash and have fallen in love. It takes off every bit of makeup, leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed and seems to have helped clear up some of my breakouts as well. It has made my skin a bit dry, but nothing that my moisturizer and Midnight Recovery Serum can't counterbalance. Terrific product that I will definitely purchase again!

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

          I absolutely love this cleanser! I am 65 with normal to dry skin. I like a cleanser that removes all makeup and leaves my face clean without a dried out feeling. This product does the job. It doesn't dry me out nor does it leave an oily residue. I've used many of the premier make-up lines' cleansers and this one is my favorite.

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

          I don't usually write reviews but this face wash is just too good to me. My skin has changed so much after I turned 22-23. I was constantly breaking out on my cheeks and I was desperate and wasting so much money at high end stores and online just to find something to help with my adult acne. I wish I found this sooner! This is the only product that has helped get rid of my acne! It's gentle and moisturizing and still does a great job of cleaning my skin! Holy grail for me!!

          I chose this as one of my deluxe samples on a previous order, but stored it away to use when traveling. On a recent trip I was amazed at how this product transformed my skin over the span of a weekend. I have oily skin that over the past 3 months has been breaking out pretty frequently and a lot of deep acne. This has cleared up the acne/pimples very quickly. I am definitely ordering a full size and am interested to see how this product performs as I use it over a longer period of time.

          Best thing to ever happen to me

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

          I am a very active dude that works out twice a day. This caused me to break out and I feel my whole life I had not had great skin. I decided to try this product and it has completely changed my skin. I was a little confused because it is not a scrub so I did not think it would be so affective but my skin glows and I am not asking any questions. Also with the top measuring the perfect amount I have used the product everyday and it has lasted me since August still going! Its a got to have product

              Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash:

              There was nothing bad about this product, but nothing great. The "not great" paired with what I found to be an off-putting scent moved this to the bottom of my list of Kiehl's products. I'm glad I tried it through a deluxe sample, and now I can move on to other products and my old favorites. I have relatively normal skin verging on dry/sensitive, so maybe it just wasn't right for my type.
