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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

A great product which cleanses effectively without drying my skin out.

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!

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

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.

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!

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.
