If you have mature skin and you are not looking for any fancy frills, this is a great cleanser. It leaves your skin soft and hydrates well. If you suffer from acne, this is sensitive enough to not irritate or promote further breakouts. It's not meant to remove heavy makeup, but it does remove it a decent amount. In fact, you can remove your eye makeup if you soak a pad in this and leave it on your lid for a short time; as a bonus, it does not sting your eyes! Some longer wearing and waterproof formulas won't come off as easily, however.

My Personal Experience: My skin is pretty finicky so I had mixed results when using it as a cleanser but I loved it as a make-up remover. Its light and non-greasy lotion-like consistency was surprisingly easy to use. The first time I washed with it, there was sort of a stinging feeling which I assume is from the fermented grain. After cleansing, my skin was smooth and didn't feel uncomfortably dry like most cleansers do. As a make-up artist, I say it is a must have cleanser for most skin types, even the acne prone. It can be quite irritating to the eyes and the ferment may be a bit strong for some so I recommend being careful.
As a make-up remover, this product can do no wrong. Make-up can be applied right after/over it since it is so light and leaves behind no buildup which is a huge plus for me since I regularly use remover to quickly change up my clients looks. Also, it didn't take more than a few swipes to remove layers of shadow, eyeshadow primer and foundation unlike some of the cheaper removers.
