Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This is my favourite cleanser - my second favourite is the one in the sensitive skin line. I have tried so many "holy grail" cleanser and am always happier when I return to this one. My skin is always really comfortable and happy after using it.This, along with the Resist Advanced Replenishing toner broke me out really badly a 1,5 weeks into using. I got an unusual amount of acne this month and as I haven't changed anything else in my routine/diet I can only suspect this product. I have already had suspicions that Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride broke me out as I am acne prone, but as Paula's choice site doesn't put it to camedogenic category, I trusted it. Unfortunately I can't use this washer nor the toner anymore and now have to deal with acne in numerous places. Customer Care: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your experience.

Please contact our Customer Care Team for further assistance.This is the best cleanser I have ever used! My skin feels hydrated and is REALLY clean even when I'm wearing heavy makeup...it made all the difference in my skin care routine...thank you PCI like this cleanser. It's gentle, removes make-up very well and most of all it doesn't dry out my already super dry skin. I liked it so much that I have decided to reorder it. This time though when I received my package one of the cleansers had its pump turned to the position OPEN and great amount of the product was spilled/pumped out in the box. I am really disappointed by this. I cannot afford to buy only half of the cleanser for the price of a full one. I will give 5 stars to the product itself because it deserves it. Delivery -1!!!Customer Care : Thank you for your review and we are sorry to hear that the cleanser was damaged during transport. We will make sure that you will receive a new bottle as soon as possible.This cleanser is an incredible 3-in-1 : it dispenses like (and has the gentleness of) a cream cleanser, (especially on sensitive skin and when water is hard), removes true stubborn makeup like a cleansing oil, and rinses completely without any residue like a cleansing gel, though it's richer than other PC's creamy cleansers and better for dry skins and/or during cold months. It slightly looses its slip after massaging a few minutes (I tend to use more of it to maintain the slip so the bottle won't last that long) and, as the consequence, the bottle is really too small, especially for a cleanser (one less star because of this) !
