Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Cleanser I enjoy this cleanser. It smells vey fresh and like fresh squeezed orange juice, lathers pretty well, and rinses smooth and effectively. I feel for the size for the price is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daily Cleanser A great daily cleanser that does an excellent job of removing the day's dirt, grime, and makeup. I use a dime size on my face and neck morning and night. I let it set for a minute and gently wash away. It also removes my waterproof mascara without hurting my eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renew Your Face! I had purchased the Avalon Organics Facial Washing Gel previously. I liked it, but was not that impressed, but this time I decided to give it a 2nd try. Boy am I ever glad I did. I don't know if they changed the formula, but it is fantastic. My skin feels soft & supple after washing. Some face washes using citrus can leave your face feeling very dry. This is a wonderful product at a terrific price. Thanks Always Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best face cleanser Since I started using this cleanser I do not need eye makeup remover. I rub my eyes with the cleanser and a little bit of water and the eye liner is all gone. The best part of it is that it does not burn my eyes at all! It is an amazing facial cleanser and all natural too. I won't be with out it for the rest of my life!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have been using this product for a a number of years now and I really love it. It does all that you would expect from a cleaning product plus being organic is a check-plus in my book. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. The Vitamin C is helpful and has many benefits to boot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pretty good only thing is I can't use it every day because it does have a drying affect. I have combination skin though so on more oily days it's great

Rated 4 out of 5 by from oh yeah i've used a number of Avalon products and this is one of my favorite, never too soapy yet does its cleansing job, not to mention its uplifting scent, making you so refreshing in the mornings! the only thing is the packaging, i had this internationally shipped and it burst, 1/5 was wasted...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing citrus cleanser I really like this facial cleanser. It has a wonderful citrus smell and doesn't irritate my skin. It cleans my makeup off effectively and rinses clean without drying my face. Will be buying this again!
Date published: 2012-07-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great smelling & refreshing cleanser I have used this product off and on for the past several years along with other facial cleansers from Swanson's. What I like about this cleanser is the super fresh citrus smell. Also, a little goes a long way as just a small amount will provide a nice foam to cover your face. It does not dry my face and makes it feel clean after using but I would give it a "B" or "B-" on its ability to cut down on oily skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is very effective and smells great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does have some unnatural ingredients.
