Great product! It's a very light cleanser which is perfect for the morning!


The first time i tried this i was amazed. As an oily skin gal i know that some cleansers might leave your face feeling like a desert or others too oily but this is the perfect middle ground. You can feel it really cleansing the skin but gentle enough so won’t strip your skin and it smells like tea tree oil which I loved.


I suffer from acne/oily prone skin and I finally found a cleanser I love. I had been using the acne cleanser Panoxyl for many years but once the formulation changed I felt as if it wasn’t cleansing my skin properly. It would leave my skin feeling oily and dry around certain areas and at times I would have to cleanse twice. With COSRX gel cleanser I can feel it cleansing my skin without stripping my skins natural oils but also not leaving my skin feeling or looking oily or dry. Its light weight and smells a little like tea tree... Read more


A must have light foaming cleanser! With low ph level it's easily made for all skin types. It has a faint tea tree scent which I then follow up with the COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Toner!


This cleanser is very mild and perfect for your morning routine or right after a workout. If you have acne-prone or sensitive skin give this a try!


Cleansers doesn't have to be expensive for it to be effective. This cleanser has always been my favorite as a daytime cleanser. It doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils and gently cleanses your skin to its most supple and clear texture.


Awesome cleanser! It's very gentle but really gets the job done. My face feels so clean and fresh after using. I would definitely recommend!


Love this cleanser!! I live in a very dry climate, but have some issues with hormonal acne. This cleanser makes my skin really smooth, clean, but not dried out, it does everything you could think of in a perfect cleanser! Used as a second cleanse, there is no residue of make up on my toner pad! All around just lovely!


Simple and effective cleanser for my combination/problematic skin. For the price, this is an easy cleanser to try or run back to when you're struggling with breakouts. Also, don't be fooled by the name...You can use this both morning and night.


I'm very impressed by this cleanser. It definitely helped my acne a bit. I use this cleanser in the shower and my back acne has improved as there are less breakouts since using this product. This does smell like tea tree oil and leaves my skin feeling clean (sometimes dry). Since I also have dry-combination skin I use other products and moisturizer after cleansing, and my skin becomes a happy camper. With the affordable price and effectiveness I definitely recommend a try!
