METSV says:    I’d say this P&RC from Algenist is the bee’s knees – and that’s coming from a non-cleanser type of gal!  The truth is that I have been using Dove soap since forever…I know… say what you will… but Dove soap has been wonderful to me for at least 30 years.  It cleans, doesn’t dry my skin out, refreshes, and hydrates…that’s all I’ve ever needed and though I’ve tried other cleansers, I always go back to my little pink bar.   However, that little bar has taken a back seat of late, because this cleanser is pretty darn good.   If you haven’t tried any items in the Algenist range, you really should remedy that!   Algenist is just a really GOOD line of skincare (I’m obsessed with their eyebalm) and the products DO what they say they will.   This is a gentle cleanser – when I’m telling you you need the TEENIEST amount, I’m not kidding – and I get a soft foaming that gently cleans my skin without stripping it or irritating my eyes or face.  (and I have very dry skin).   There’s no redness or dry, taught skin upon rinsing.   I just have soft, smooth, replenished skin – and that’s all I want.   I think it does a great job of removing makeup too.  I use a toner after cleansing and I see very little traces of makeup (if any) on my cotton round.   When I remember to use my cleansing brush, it works even better!    This line is gathering a lot of steam due to the gentleness and effectiveness of their products.  Definitely check them out.
