Good for oily and acne prone skin.

Great exfoliating wash, especially for sensitive skin!
Posted 11/19/2015 by Morgan
This is a really good cleanser. I don't have to use a makeup remover wipe before I wash my face with this, it takes all the makeup off the first time. It does sting a little bit because of the mandelic and malic acid in it, but it's still fairly gentle. I use it with my Clarisonic and I like that it suds up and makes a few bubbles because my face feels really clean and fresh afterwards. If you're struggling with acne, try using this 3-4 nights a week and it should clear up a lot!

My favorite cleanser. Non drying. Great for my sensitive skin. Removes all makeup.

Finally found a great EXFOLIATING product that is
- For Sensitive skin
- SLS-free and no Salicylic acid. Doesn’t strip/irritate my skin.
- Mandelic acid is less irritating than other AHA’s. Made from almonds, it is known for anti-inflammatory properties which helps me with facial redness and acne-like bumps.
- Malic acid is found naturally in apples. Removes dead skin cells, reduces signs of aging, helps treat acne and promotes the production of collagen.
- Just a dime size amount, it says, so you know just how much to use.

Love this product! It removes make-up well. I wish it came in a bigger bottle!

My Fav!! Love it. Perfect makeup remover and cleanser with no drying.

I bought this for my daughters and they had such great results I bought it for myself. I'm in my mid 40's and have an occasional breakout. It clears my skin quickly.

This stuff is amazing!

It was a cleanser like any other cleanser. I found nothing special about it.
Posted 7/13/2015 by Steph
My favorite cleanser. Cleared up all acne and is not drying at all.
Posted 7/13/2015 by Steph
My favorite cleanser, cleans all makeup and has made tremendous change for the good in my skin.
A very unique product!
Posted 7/6/2015 by Sharon
The whole M2 brand combines natural ingredients and is even safe for those pregnant or nursing! Some of us had a difficult time finding effective AND safe products during that time of our lives. This was my first "spa/pro" skincare line I chose to help improve my skin and it truly took my skin to another level.
As for this specific product... It's very unique because you literally wet your face and apply it all over your face and let it sit for one minute and rinse it off! Yes, no massaging for many minutes, no scratchy feeling on your skin, etc. I even use it under my eyes, but will start feeling it if I accidentally leave it on for more than one minute. I had never exfoliated under my eyes because of the sensitive and delicate skin and most are not suitable for use there until I had a facial at a spa on vacation. I noticed how soft and healthy my under eye area was and it absorbed my eye serums/creams much better. I use this product once or twice a week. You can use it more often, but I don't only because I don't need it in combination with my other products.
Good Product but a Little Strong For Me
Posted 6/29/2015 by Eva
I was using the Skin Refinish for rosacea with great success so added this to my routine. This helps with my occasional comidones, but as my skin is becoming more sensitive with age, this cleanser is becoming too strong for me. I've started getting redness & burning, especially if combined with more M2 products. I still feel it would be great for someone with oilier, less reactive skin.
Meets my multiple needs
Posted 6/28/2015 by Brookelbm
Finally a product line that treats acne and aging skin. I have very troublesome skin, and always have. I spent my teens and 20's using only acne based products that dry me out and had terrible sun habits too. Now I am in my 30's and still suffer from cystic acne, comidones, black heads and am really noticing fine lines and sun damage. I really wanted to focus on anti-aging products and every time I do my acne gets out of control. M2 addresses both my major issues! It isn't my "cure-all" but it really helps! I love how I can feel this cleanser working aside from just cleaning. I leave it on for about a minute and it tingles or slightly burns (not in an uncomfortable way). I can feel the active ingredients working.

Great product. Found that using on a daily basis tended to dry out my skin so I now use it every other day and no dryness. My go to product.

Excellent product, love the suds. Doesn't dry out skin but does an exceptional job cleansing face.
Posted 5/29/2015 by Dawn
I have been looking for some time to replace the MD Forte that I had used for years. This product works well, with no irritation.
Posted 4/30/2015 by MDukes
I bought this for my daughter along with the M2 High Potency Skin Refinish. She has terrible acne and scars. We saw results in one week. It cleared her acne quickly and have noticed big improvements with the scars. So happy I just purchased the moisturizer as well.
LOVE this product

LOVE this product
M2 Cleanser - Good after a workout!
Posted 3/21/2015 by JFerguson
I have combination skin and while this cleanser is fairly gentle, would be a bit much for my daily use; it's great for breaking through sweat and grime after a run or working outdoors! I've absolutely added it to my unique regime and love it.
Posted 3/12/2015 by Shana
The cleanser is actually not that strong compared to proactive, it will not dry your skin. Good for everyday use.
Posted 3/7/2015 by angie
Excellent for shower use. I have acne and this cleaner is great for morning cleaning of your face and chest.
Posted 3/6/2015 by Steph
Love it! Melts makeup off, Feels great too.
Not for sensitive/irritated skin
Posted 2/27/2015 by AA
Doesn't leave film on face after wash, but my face's not squeaky clean or tight either. But it's a big no no if your skin is raw or irritated. You might want this if you want a mandelic/exfoliating cleanser, but this is definitely not a gentle daily cleanser if you have sensitive/irritated skin.
My skin is usually quite sensitive but not intolerant, and for about a month I used this cleanser on and off with no problem. A few days ago my face got irritated by an acne treatment, I used The Body Shop Aloe Facial Wash with no problem but M2 cleanser really hurt my face. It tingled all over. And whoa it really hurt. Big ouch.
So, big caution if you have sensitive skin.
Posted 2/25/2015 by Mary
This product is a wonderful cleanser without being too harsh for mature skin. I make sure I use a good M2 hydrating moisturizer after.
M2 exfoliating cleanser
Posted 2/20/2015 by Jo ellen
I use this with my Clarisonic device twice daily. I am 60 and have skin as pretty as my daughter has! I love purchasing from this company because everyone is so nice. And they have great prices!
Posted 2/12/2015 by Jasmine
I use this cleanser just before I apply the M2 skin refinish and I absolutely love it. It does tingle a little but it leaves my skin feeling so soft and refreshed. I love using this product.
Posted 1/14/2015 by Steph
Cleans amazingly well. Makeup and all. I have very dry skin though and it seems really tight after cleansing. I have been using twice a day. I am going to try only at night for a while to see if my skin will adjust to it. I love it other than the tightness.
Posted 1/12/2015 by MJW
Excellent product. My skin is very reactive. This does the job without irritation. My new favorite.

Works great and leaves skin clean and soft.
Great with Clarisonic
Posted 12/25/2014 by Meredith
I've been using the 20% serum forever and wanted to try a more "high end" cleanser instead of stuff from drug stores. This cleanser works wonderfully with my clarisonic. I only need 1/2 a pump to get a nice lather with my brush, so one bottle of this lasts months! I only use it 2-3 times per week and have noticed my skin is smoother and brighter.
Posted 12/18/2014 by Pretty Pearls
After reviewing YouTube Videos, I thought I'd try the product line. The first time I lathered up the cleanser on my Clairisonic Brush, I knew I was hooked. It lathered nicely and my skin felt so smooth.
Posted 12/2/2014 by Peggy
A great product which cleanses effectively without drying my skin out.
Posted 8/27/2014 by Jessica
I have always bought store cleansers and never saw a difference in my skin until I started using this product. My face feels amazing. My friends and family ask me if I got anything "done" to my face. Love this product!
great cleanser but new packaging is much smaller!
Posted 12/13/2013 by Anonymous
i received this product and realized it was much smaller than the one i got a couple of years ago (120ml vs 200ml) and the price was about the same. I saw similar reviews on the Mama lotion as well. I think M2 makes great products but it's disappointing that they're doing this to their loyal customers.
Cleans well without drying out
Posted 2/28/2013 by Anonymous
I think this is a great cleanser. Cleans off my make up well, doesnt dry me out and feel a little tingle on my face when using it- refreshing. Will buy again.
Posted 5/31/2012 by KrissyG
Overall this is a great product. It cleans well, exfoliates gently, and doesn't smell harsh. So far a great product. I've used it for a few weeks now and I have had no irritation from the exfoliation, even using retinol afterward. It doesn't seem to dry out my skin, and I tend toward dry skin anyway since I have excema. It cleans well without stripping your skin of all the moisture. It's easy to use since you only leave it on for 30 seconds, instead of some other exfoliators which can take up to 5 minutes. It isn't super invasive, and you might want to use a more potent exfoliating product if you need a really intensive exfoliation since this is just a very light exfoliation from what I can tell. It does leave my skin feeling great, not too tight or dry. It has also cleared up some of the acne I have from medication, which is why I purchased it in the first place. A really nice product, I'm very impressed. I would give it 5 stars except for the cost. It does seem to last a long time though. You just use a dime-sized amount each time you wash, and the level of liquid in the bottle hasn't dropped at all, so I foresee it lasting a good while.

I have moderate Melasma and was seeking an exfoliating product that would help supress the Melanin and still be an affective cleanser. This works great!
Posted 2/4/2012 by Anonymous
I have mod. sensitive skin. used this to treat eczema and it was great. Cleared up small irritating patches on my face anc chin that had become discolored. Only needed to use it 3-4 times per week.
