I've had this cleanser for quite some time, but I still have plenty left. So maybe the price isn't so ridiculous once that is factored in. I use this once a day, in the evening with my Clarisonic, after I have pre-cleansed my face with my fave oil cleanser.
Since I wear a full face of makeup everyday and I am severely prone to acne breakouts, I want a rich effective yet gentle cleanser at the end of my day to help sanitize and clean my skin without any irritation. Simply because while my skintone continues to be uneven I will continue to wear foundation + bronzer + blush + eyeshadow + mascara + + +.... :)... even if it wasn't I'd still wear it... I love makeup
The consistency of this cleaner is rich and creamy. A luxuriously pearly smooth consistency that foams up to a rich lather. It has a scent that at first I found unexpected... strong and perfumey... nothing marine like about it. After 60 seconds with my Clarisonic and this, my face is left feeling so clean. At first I though "ooops stripped" but no, not that extreme... it never became dehydrated, or sensitive... but it does have that bright, clean feeling to it.
