I love trying face products especially face washes, and I absolutely love clinique cleanser! Way back when someone gave me a tube of clinique face moisturiser and I absolutely loved it and wanted to try more products by them. My face bounces around depending on the season and what I've done to my face. I hunt and when I do I usually use the greasy camo face paint and that always makes my blackheads I get on my nose area look horrible. I get tiny black heads and they and up soaking up the paint and some face washes don't get the paint off that has gone into my pores. I usually like a exfoliating face wash because I feel like I get a deeper clean and I like the way my face feels after. But climque gives me the same amount of clean and it also cleans deep down into my pores. My face doesn't feel so abused after using this wash like some other ones. My face feels clean and refreshed while being soft and not dried out. I have the most unbalanced skin and this is one cleanser that works well to help with the oily areas of my face and also doesn't leave my face feeling leathery or stiff. I highly recommend all the clinique products. They just plain work and although they are expensive, a little product goes a long way and it works so well that I don't mind paying the extra money to get a cleanser that can handle my combination skin. Anyone who has skin like mine knows how hard it is to find a cleanser that can handle all of the different problem areas of their face. I like the way it works and I like the way my face looks and feels after use and I like how it evens out my face and reduces the red spots too. It never has made me break out like a lot of washes have done to me! Give it a try because it is a great product!

Got a 1.7 oz tube as a gift with purchase. Was reluctant to switch from my clinique wash away gel cleanser (HG) to this, but I wanted to try something new.I must say, this stuff feels like soap on my skin! Yes it removed my foundation and eye makeup completely, a little tooo completely that I think it stripped the natural oils in my skin in the process. My face felt squeaky clean right afterwards, and I only used a tiny dime size amount too. Squeaky has always means stripped, dry, UNHEALTHY skin for me. Yuck. Will stick to the gel cleanser. Do NOT buy this product, for some reason if you like soap cleansers .. just buy their bar soap or a drugstore soap bar and you'll get the same results.Harmful ingredients (source: nvwah.com, a beauty ingredient encyclopedia)* contains potassium myristate that could be drying and sentisizing to dry skin types.* contains myristic acid, a surfactant that can be irritating to skin.* contains lemon which can be a strong skin irritant.* contains lavender, a fragrant component which can be a strong skin irritant.* contains pine which can be a strong skin irritant and should not be used on chafed skin.* contains cardamom which can be a strong skin irritant and should not be used on chafed skin.

    Gentle and Effective

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    I usually don't buy Clinique products a lot because of the price. It really doesn't fit in well with my budget. However, here and there I treat myself, Some of the Clinique products suit me and some of them don't. Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser is one that does. I really like this cleanser. I don't use it all the time because of the cost but it is in my regular rotation. Clinique offers sample sizes so you can always try it out before you pay for a large size. If you buy other Clinique products you will often receive sample size things for free.

    Effectiveness
    This is a creamy cleanser that does an excellent job of foaming and lathering when massaged in. It really gets rid of the day's grime, dirt, and oil. It rinses completely so my face feels clean. I noticed that my complexion looks really good when I use this. This is very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin in any way.

    Ease of Application
    This is easy to use. It has a flip top cap which is fairly convenient.

    Scent
    I think this smells fresh and clean. The scent is not over-powering in any way.

    My favorite cleanser

    By 

    from New Johnsonville, TN

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    When I want to splurge on a beauty buy, this is typically my vice of choice. I love this cleanser. I was first introduced to the rinse-off foaming cleanser from a sample in a Clinique bonus bag. It was love at first use. I like the soft silky feel of the cleanser and the way it foams gently and feels so good on my face. I can use it morning and night and my face does not dry out, which has been a problem with other cleansers. My skin feels smooth and silky after use, not dry and tight like I've experienced with other cleansers. I also appreciate that there is no strong perfumed or medicated scent, which is a real turn off for me in a facial product.

    This cleanser can definitely be pricey. As I stated earlier, I view it as a splurge. I do feel, however, it is a good investment. One bottle lasts a long time, as it only takes a tiny amount to do the job. Also, it's a product that works, so you won't be wasting money on something that you won't use.

    Nice daily wash

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    Nice light cleanser for every day use. Typical Clinique in that it has no scent (other then just fresh clean in itself). Refreshing and not drying. I use it at night to wash off the day's make up then follow up with light lotion.

    Effectiveness
    Effective at removing dirt and make up.

    Ease of Application
    Super easy - just rub a small amount between your hands and apply to your face. Rinse off with warm, not hot, water.

    Scent
    No artificial scent!!

    Works great

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    My sister gave me a sample of Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser to try. It has worked great for me. I have oily skin and sometimes break out. It has been fine for my skin and has helped to balance it out. I usually use it at night to wash off makeup, smog and oil buildup from the day. It removes most of the makeup, so you can almost go without a makeup remover previous to the face wash. The texture is very unique. It is so creamy and velvety and then works up into a lather when add water and rub it into your face. Very nice. I think this cleanser would be fine for all types of skin as it is very gentle yet does the job of leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean. I would like to get it in the bigger bottle now that I have tried the sample, which by the way has lasted me a long time! Clinique has some very nice sample size products that are great to try out before you buy the full size presentation.

    Very gentle yet very effective!

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    I first tried Clinique's Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser in the travel size that came in a gift set.  Before I used half of the travel size, I had already purchased the full size product because I loved it so much. It has a very creamy, almost whipped consitency.  It takes less than a nickel sized amount to wash your entire face.  I like to start with my face only slightly damp, then rub the product in.  It foams up with a small amount of water.  After I have let it sit on my face a few seconds, I wet my hands then rub my face again. This makes the foam thinner and it feels like it cleanses my face even more.  I remove my mascara before using this product, so I do not know how well it removes eye makeup.  It does a wonderful job removing mineral makeup, which is often very hard to remove.  My face always feels soft and very clean afterwards.  I have very sensitive skin that is prone to redness and this product is great for me. The only downside is the price, however the full size bottle lasts a VERY long time due to only needing a small amount per use. 

    Ease of Application
    This cleanser quickly foams and is easy to apply.

    Scent
    This product is hypo-allergenic and does not have a fragrance. However there is a light smell but it just smells clean.

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    This cleanser is great, it could be a little pricey if you don't know what you are buying but you will find it to be very good value for the money when you put just a tiny amount on face, mix it with water and see how a little goes a long way! This product will last you a very long time and will deliver great results !

    its really gentle.

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    its really gentle and foams up nicely. it does get the job done...mostly. I bought this thinking it would wash off my mascara too, but it didn't. there were even black streaks across my face afterwards, but that has happened with other products too before so i wasn't that disappointed. but for the price i paid i expected to at least wash it all off. that aside, it is a nice light cleanser. it soes not feel greasy and did not irritate my eyes. it feels gentle and has a pleasant super light scent to it. but that said it was just like an average cleanser.

    i'll use it until i finish it but i don't think i'll buy it again unless its on sale. i think a drustore beand cleanser works just as well. Average.

    Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

    By 

    from Bennington, VT

    Comments about Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser:

    Usually, I use a facial cleanser once a day. Sometimes I will use the Clinique Rinse-Off Facial Cleanser at night to sort of wash off the day, as that is when my skin normally needs a cleanser the most. I have easily dried skin, so I am always careful not to over-do it. I also have oily skin. Combine the two problems and it makes it difficult to find a balance for clean and healthy looking skin.

    The Clinique Cleanser is good for washing off the day, especially when you have been wearing makeup. It may be more expensive than some other cleansers, but it only takes a small amount to actually wash you face. It suds up quickly and leaves a thick enough film over the skin to cleanse it well. You do not have to scrub away too hard either, like some other cleansers require. It is also refreshing to wash it off.

    The only thing I do not like about it is that it can leave skin dry, so I would recommend putting on a good moisturizer after cleansing.

    When I am not using the Clinique Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser, I use Saint Ives Apricot Scrub (that typically runs less expensive than Clinique) which works better for scrubbing and acne prevention.
