    • I am in love with this cleanser! I have oily skin and after washing my face with this cleanser, my skin feels so clean and soft! I've noticed that I'm breaking out less after switching to this cleanser and Kate Somerville Clarifying Treatment Toner. Yay!

    • after struggling with blemishes FOR YEARS I have gone through my fair share of cleansers and let me tell you, this one is amazing! Deep cleaning, non stripping, cleared my breakouts within a week and I can see a glow after I use it. Just wonderful, try it, you won't regret it.

    • A few months ago I got roped into buying a product that you have to order from a representative. It's kind of one of those MLM type things and you get it on autoship and it just about ruined my skin. I know you can't mention names here... Anyway, long story short, I tried a lot of stuff to get my skin back on track and what finally worked was Kate's Daily Detox cleanser. I love this product. I use it with my hand-held device -- see, I didn't use any name... :) and it works wonders. I absolutely love the fragrance and I'll be using it for the rest of my life.

    • I've been using this product for over a year. Due to the price, I have tried other products, but always come back to this product (and won't leave again:). It removes all makeup including mascara, doesn't dry your face but helps with breakouts. THE BEST!

    • I love this cleanser! it is gentle on the skin so it wont cause irritation and also removes makeup that you already thought was gone. I use this after i use a scrub to remove all my makup and foundation but then use this right after to make sure its all gone and i love it. i use it twice a day: in the morning and then at night before bed. I wont go to sleep without washing my face now that I found KS!

    • This is a great cleanser to use every day! It's non-oily and leaves your skin fresh and feeling clean! The only thing is, sometimes I can't get a lather going so it's hard to know if everywhere got a good cleansing, so sometimes I have to keep adding more. It smells nice too :)

    • I love love love this cleanser! I have mild acne but am experiencing the beginning signs of 30-something skin (combination skin, new fine lines, etc). This cleanser clears my skin but eliminates any dry patches and does not give any 'tightening' sensation. When I have problematic weeks (hormones, humid summer days, etc), I pair this with the Anti-Bac treatment, and any problems are taken care of. I have tried many other cleansers, from luxury lines to drug store brands, and nothing compares. There are websites dedicated to finding inexpensive alternatives to lines such as KS, and none of their substitutions even come CLOSE to the results I get from this product. Don't be fooled- the detox daily cleanser is the real deal and worth every cent.

    • I have a really oily skin but live in a desert where the water is hard. I had come to dislike washing my face because it always leaves my skin super dry. But I found that Kate's detox cleanser helps retain moisture. My skin feels clean with a hint of tangy smell, but does not dry out.

    • I received this in a 500 point perk from sephora and would not hesitate to buy after my deluxe sample runs out. it is gentle on the skin, yet very effective - completely removing all my makeup (which is a lot!) and oils but not stripping my face. My face feels clean and rejuvenated after washing. Love it!

    • I am 25 and have struggled with acne for over a decade now. Just when I was feeling fed up (again) with spending money on products that didn't work, I decided to splurge and invest in a few Kate products. I am so glad I did! I am in love with this cleanser, it is deep cleaning without stripping, smells great, and is amazingly packaged. It feels powerful but gentle enough to use twice a day. It works great with my Clarisonic. For those struggling with acne I encourage you to try Kate's line and to start out simple: right now I'm just using this cleanser, the oil free moisturizer, and the water light sunscreen. And exfolikating twice a week! Less is more while your skin is finding a balance! I look forward to experimenting with more kate products in the future, but for now, my skin has NEVER looked better.

    • This is my new favorite face cleanser! I love that this contains some good acids for the skin like AHA, BHA, lactic acid, which helps to gently exfoliate and cleanses the surface of the skin without causing any irritation or dryness! The scent smells very fresh as well. This cleanser has made my makeup-removal and face-washing routines so much easier and enjoyable!

    • I just finished my first bottle of this cleanser. When I had started using it, I was experiencing some hormonal breakouts. On the final day of use, my skin looks clear and I have experienced limited breakouts while using this product. I have very dry skin and typically acne products leave me red and flaky. That is not the case with Kate's products. I will say, I do not like how quickly I went through this. Though, I'm probably using too much and I use it at night and in the morning.

    • I tried this product after reading many reviews. The product smells great, feels great after you rinse, and is very light-weight, but the whole reason for buying this was that I wanted something to help keep mine and my boyfriend’s occasional breakouts at bay. Unfortunately, this product seemed to make both of our skin worse than it’s ever been in our adult life. I recently switched us to Kate’s Purifying Cleanser, and it seems to be clearing up both our faces. I’m giving 3 stars because it’s not a bad product it just didn’t work for us. My recommendation for someone with occasional breakouts (not acne) is Kate’s Purifying Clarifying Cleanser, its light and gives your skin a slight tingle.

    • I have combination skin and am in my late thirties. I wanted a cleanser that removed all traces of face makeup and sunscreen without stripping my skin. This cleanser did the trick beautifully - kept it clean and clear. I used this at a time that I was beginning Retin-A and I had no irritation or dryness. The smell is very nice and a little bit goes a long way.

    • I've tried all three lines of Kate's daily cleansers. This one is great for that deep wash, getting all of that dirt of of your face. It's quite strong , so I usually buy the gentle daily wash along with this so that i can switch up. But it's a very amazing buy!

    • It was a month before my wedding and I was desperate to find something to not only clear up my skin but to keep it clear amid the stress. I went in to my local Nordstroms and was led to Kate's skin care line. The minute I began to use this, my face felt cleaner and fresher. Within three days, my skin was clear and stayed clear all throughout the wedding and into the honeymoon. I lean on this every morning and evening and can't imagine what my skin would look like without it. Thanks Kate!

    • I purchased the biggest size in this cleanser retailed at $95.00. I have never spent so much on face wash, but this bottle lasted long enough for me to forget the price tag. A dime size amount is all that is needed because the product is thick so you get your money's worth. It has a nice citrus smell that's subtle and not overwhelming. Never have I had a face wash that also removed my makeup completely. This was a plus since I didn't have to spend money on makeup remover and I saved a lot of time from having to remove my makeup before washing my face. Love this product! It has been my favorite face wash for the past 3 years now.

This product foams up well with water so you don't end up needing a ton. It leaves your skin feeling really fresh and moisturized for hours. Also, it has a pretty good smell to it. Definitely worth the high price.

    • I use this product every day and have been for years! It has really made a difference with my acne, in conjunction with ExfoliKate Acne and the Antibac Lotion. My only qualm is that after using this and the regular ExfoliKate, my palms were tinted slightly orange. I believe that this is an issue with the beta carotene in the normal ExfoliKate, but because of this effect, I only gave the product 4 stars.

Finally, I got a facial at Nordstrom and was told to use Kate Somerville's products. This cleanser+Clarisonic and the Nourish moisturizer cleared up my acne in a couple of weeks and I've been able to maintain it for the past couple years. Thank you, Kate, for my clear skin!!

My pores also look clear and I have not had a pimple since I began using this product. My face looks great and feels soft. The only downside is the packaging. The bottom circle makes the wash leak out a little and it can become messy.

    • I bought this cleanser to use in addition to the Gentle Daily Wash (which I LOOOOVE) when I need a little bit more heavy-duty cleansing to combat occasional acne issues. I use the Gentle Daily Wash in the morning and this at night with the Clarifying Treatment Toner and the Dilo Oil Restorative Treatment. The scent of the Detox Daily Cleanser is fresh and almost lemon-y, and I feel like it gets my face really clean when I use it. My skin is very sensitive and tends to be super dry in some places and super oily in others, but I feel like this has helped to balance out the oil production a little bit. I only use it once a day, though, because my face seemed to get a little irritated when I used it AM and PM. I would recommend removing makeup prior to cleansing with this, because I noticed that it didn't get all of my foundation off in some places, but that might be different for other people. All in all, it's definitely a great product and I'm definitely going to repurchase when I run out.

It has been 3 weeks of using Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser. I have only negative results after using this product as instructed!! I am very disappointed because it did not only keep my break outs, it prevented more. After the 1st week i noticed signs of breaking out more. I thought it was my face getting used to a different cleanser. I strongly do not recommend this product to others because it was not worth the time, money, shipping and waiting for arrival.

    • I just used a sample of this cleanser, and I thought it was a great, everyday cleanser for those who have acne-prone skin. My skin is combination and I sometimes am wary of detox cleansers because they can strip your skin of all of its elasticity and moisture. This didn't have this effect at all, and at the same time, I felt like my skin was cleansed of any impurities that would clog my skin. I am definitely going to purchase this, and can't wait to make it a part of my skincare regimen!

Many products have been tried to combat this and after receiving a deluxe sample I discovered my pimples were gone after ~1-2 weeks.

    • For years I have struggled to find a cleanser I can use twice daily without drying out my skin or causing more breakouts. Up until this product, I would switch every time my current cleanser ran out. Not this one! It is light, fresh and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I actually bought the huge $95 bottle, that's how much I love it. This works great with the Clarisonic Mia as well -- I use it every night before bed for a deep clean. It doesn't prevent breakouts altogether but it has made a huge difference in the overall health and clarity of my skin.

    • This is a wonderful cleanser. It does a fantastic job of removing makeup without drying the skin. I have combination/dry skin, and I use the Detox cleanser at night and the Gentle cleanser in the morning. I love the fresh smell and the bright yellow color. I do not find it drying at all, and I feel as though my skin is perfectly prepped for any nighttime treatments or serums I want to use prior to bed.

      I have been blessed with clear, blemish free skin my whole life, but I have often been neglectful in washing my face before bed(i'm was guilty of using facial cloths!). However, my bed time prep has been reinvigorated due to the Detox cleanser. My skin looks better than ever and possesses a brightness I have not seen in a while.

      I agree with other reviews in my dislike of the top, but I just leave it topo side up and wipe it off after use. My next purchase will be the luxury size, as I use the luxury size in the Gentle cleanser and it is a terrific bargin.

    • Does a really good job removing all of my makeup n doesnt dry out my skin. Has a good scent n nice gel consistency that feels nice on the skin. Cleared my skin up tremendously!

    • I have used this cleanser for the past two months, day and night, in conjunction with KS Oil-free (AM) and Goat Milk Cream (PM). I use this with a Clarisonic at night and with my hands in the morning. Overall, I like some aspects of this product and feel neutral about others. It has a refreshing citrus/tea tree scent, I love the color (neon yellow!), it does not dry out my oily/acne prone skin that can sometimes lean dry, and it removes almost all of my makeup. Having said that, it has not improved or worsened my acne, something I was hoping for based on all the stellar reviews. My sister, on the other hand, used this for two weeks when she was visiting over the holidays and loved it. She has normal/dry skin and was experiencing some breakouts, which are unusual for her, and she saw a noticeable difference after a week! Lucky duck!

    • I started out by borrowing my friends cleanser, then I absolutely fell in love.
      So I bought 16 Fl. Oz..
      I have been using it past couple of weeks and I still love them.
      I recommend it to acne prone skin as well. It definitely calmed mine down a lot.
      I will purchse it again.

    • B!

      This is my go to cleanser when I feel I have a gunky face... Sometimes I spend all day with my makeup on and this really cleans all of that dirty gunk out. I don't like the yellow color but its ok

    • I was hoping that the Detox Daily Cleanser would help to clear up the bumps on my cheeks - I think they are just clogged pores that stay under the surface of my skin. Sadly I didn't notice any improvement in my skin in the three weeks I used it.

      I do love the fresh, citrus-y smell and the fact that this didn't strip my skin - I may give it another shot after my skin clears up.

    • I got a deluxe sample of this product and couldn't get enough of it! This has a really mild smell for a face wash so that's a definite plus in my book since I am sensitive to that sort of thing. I was a bit weary about this product since most acne cleansers dry out my face SO much, but this one did not! And it cleared up my acne asap! Will definitely be purchasing a full size one when my sample runs out

    • I have Rosacea and the most sensitive skin ever. I struggled to find a cleanser gentle enough to use every day yet strong enough to actually clean my face, without resulting in a flare up. This product was the solution to my problem and my saving grace. I do find that it can be a little drying if I use anything more than a dime sized amount, but otherwise an amazing, dependable product.

    • I received a 1oz sample of this cleanser a while back and threw it into my makeup bag when I went on a ski trip. This cleanser is fantastic! Gentle enough on my sensitive, wind burnt skin without compromising the feeling of a deep clean. I'll be buying the full size product! Great with my clarisonic as well.

    • I have been having adult acne prone skin after Lasek surgery due to anti-biotic medicine side effects. I did everything to get rid of them but nothing really seemed to be working.

    • I've been using this cleanser for almost a year now after switching from brand to brand looking for the right fit for my skin and I love it. I don't wear make up daily so I can't vouch for how well it works at removing makeup but it has worked wonders at helping to keep my skin clear and my blackheads at bay. I also love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling too dry after using it. Definitely would recommend this item!

    • I am rarely loyal to any skincare item...until I found this cleanser. It cleans without drying my skin. I love it after the gym. Helped clear my blemishes and prevented new ones. Don't use in the eye area to remove make-up though. It is perfect everywhere else. I even use it with my Clarisonic. I have gone through 4 tubes and always have a backup waiting so I don't run out.

I have tried many products and I can say, I will purchase this product for as long as I can.

    • I have been using this product for over a year but this is the first time I have posted a review. I love this cleanser. I have monthly hormonal breakouts and since using this on a regular basis they are so much better. The cleanser does not dry my skin like so many other cleansers for acne prone skin. I use twice a day and love it!

    • I have struggled with acne since having a full hysterectomy and this is the only cleanser that has helped with my changing, hormonal skin. My skin used to be radiant and clear but now I battle hormonal acne and dullness. I am a product junkie and have spent thousands on skin care and nothing has worked as well as this cleanser. I use it twice a day and have had positive results.

    • I have been using this cleanser for a little over a month, along with the Clarifying Treatment Toner, Oil Free Moisturizer, and Anti-Bac lotion. The biggest change I have noticed is that my skin seems brighter and feels softer. I had been using Proactiv for years, but was becoming increasingly unhappy with the diminishing result, dull skin, and increased irritation. I am hoping that with continued use this will begin to have more of an impact on my acne.

    • This cleanser is totally fine. It's a nice, basic cleanser. For all of the impressive-sounding ingredients, I expected a little more, though.

      I personally prefer cleansing oils, as I think they are gentler on the skin and clean deeper than foamy/sudsy gels. I would love if Kate made a cleansing oil.

      For now, I don't think I'll repurchase this cleanser, but I will repurchase Kate's goat milk moisturizer and Exfolikate. Forever. Love them.

    • This is my favorite cleanser that I use. I have sensitive skin and this is really good for every day use. I use this first thing in the morning and after I take off my make up when going to bed. I love the smell and how clean it leaves my skin feeling. Will definitely continue to buy.

    • the cleanser does its job and washes off any feel of grease and make up after using just a little bit. the only thing I don't like about it is the tube container itself. the cleanser comes out of a hole from the top of the tube, which means it leaves a sticky residue on the counter if I leave the tube standing up. Not very convenient. perhaps it's because I got this as a complimentary gift using my reward points? I'd give this a 5-stars otherwise.

    • I've been using this wash for going on 4 years. It's super gentle, leaves me with clean skin, and smells great! I worked for Proactiv Solution for 5+ years, and used their products until I discovered this one. The last few years I worked there, I didn't even use their products since this in combination with the Eradi-Kate and Oil Free Moisture kept my skin clear without harsh benzoyl peroxide.

    • I love daily detox - I don't use it year-round, I found when I did I was unnecessarily over treating my skin and it would dry. I always keep a bottle around and use it when my skin breaks out throughout the year and then all through the summer - use detox at night before bed and gentle in the morning. Winning combo!

    • I'm about to turn 24 so I have been trying to find a cleanser that is great for anti-aging, and blemish prone skin, and I've finally found it! Most cleansers for anti-aging are too creamy and clog up my skin, while most acne cleansers are way too harsh and dry out my skin. This is the perfect balance. First of all, it smells great, like fresh lemons. Second, you don't need that much to clean your face and neck. Last, it cleans thoroughly without over drying my skin. It gently glides over my skin and removes every bit of dirt, oil and makeup. I always use a separate make up remover no matter what cleanser I use, so I can't attest to it removing a full face of makeup (although that's not what it is designed for) but it cleans leftover makeup and dirt like a dream. There is also ZERO irritation with this cleanser. I highly recommend this cleanser.

    • Since I started college, my skin has taken a huge 180. In high school, I never had a problem. I found products that worked for me and stuck with those, but for the past two years I've struggled immensely trying to find products that would clear my skin. I've probably spent hundreds of dollars experimenting with different products only to have them fail or severely dry out my skin. I'm very picky with what I put on my face because I'm concerned with breaking out, but this line is fabulous. I've only been using this product for about a week and I've already seen a huge difference. It doesn't dry out your skin, isn't harsh, and has a pleasant smell. I'm so incredibly glad I found this product. It saved my skin!

    • I love the Detox Daily Cleanser! The cleanser leaves your skin feeling 100% clean. It actually removes makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry and tight like most cleansers do that remove makeup.

Within just a few short weeks, my acne is nearly gone and my skin is so much softer. If I had but one suggestion, I wish it was a flip-top so that when storing on-end, it wouldn't have that bit of leak out or possibility of contamination. I'm sure that Kate has heard this before and am surprised they haven't made this change already.

Needless to say, I fell in love! Within 2 weeks my skin had gone from drab to fab. I constantly get stopped now by people telling me I have a gorgeous complexion - and asking my for my beauty secrets. I absolutely LOVE this cleanser. It is gentle enough to use with my clarisonic, yet thorough enough to remove a days worth of makeup. It has a great refreshing feel and scent. I love using it first thing in the morning to wake me up as well! I love it so much I even got my husband hooked! He is going on a 1 year work assignment in another country and I sent him with a year supply of the detox cleanser - he could not bare to be without his kate somerville detox cleanser!

    • I used to use Caudalie products for my dry, acne-prone skin and thought the results were so-so... Then I tried ExfoliKate one day and fell in love with the scrub. It made my skin so glowy! Then I tried this cleanser - I'm in my twenties, so I'm more concerned with preventative anti-aging skincare that helps with my mild to moderate breakouts. This cleanser has helped my skin tremendously! I feel much more confident after using these products and wear much less makeup (also helping with the clarity of my skin). Love!

    • I was a bit hesitant to try this product as it contains sulfates, however this does not dry out my combination/oily skin at all. I do not use this twice a day, rather I just use it at night and then use Kate's Gentle Cleanser in the morning. I am really happy with that combination so far, though during 'that time of the month' I might opt to use this twice daily. I purchased this as part of the Blemish Banister Kit and have found it to be effective. Like many other commenters, I am not a fan of the twist cap packaging.

    • I absolutely love this cleanser. I use it every night and it has really helped with the adult acne that I have been getting. I was surprised when I squeezed it out into my hands and saw it was neon yellow! But nonetheless, it is a fantastic product. It gets your skin feeling really clean without stripping it. Usually, when you start a new skin regime, you skin reacts and peels and flakes a little (at least mine does), so when I started using this I was shocked when my skin did NOT peel! To me that is the sign of a really great cleanser - when it clears up your skin and yet doesn't make you have a reaction while your skin adjusts. I really love this product and will be purchasing the full size one.

I historically would be the person that would neglect to wash their face in the morning and just use a washcloth, however this cleanser has converted me. I WANT to wash my face in the morning and start my day with a cleansing cocktail.

      The cleanser is gentle enough for sensitive skin it doesn't make your skin feel too tight or anything. There is no over drying or anything.

    • This is the best cleanser ever!! I have struggle with acne my entire life (now in my 40's). I began using this cleanser and saw immediate results. I recently started using this with my Clarisonic and my pores are considerably smaller! I love Kate Somerville products! Wish I could afford a trip out to visit her!!!

    • This is a wonderful daily wash. It gets the job done, but it's a little strong for my sensitive skin, and so for those with sensitive skin, I recommend gentle daily wash.

    • I love this cleanser. It's refreshing, smells great, and does the trick. I have used acne medications and Proactiv for years, and this is the best for my skin. It removes my makeup at night and refreshes my skin in the morning. It does a great job of keeping break outs at bay. I have been using it for a few months and would highly recommend it!

    • This is my go to cleanser, especially during the summer time or when my skin acts up. I alternate between this and the gentle cleanser during the winter. Leaves skin feeling fresh with a clean tingly feeling, yet doesn't strip my skin. Works great at removing makeup, too.

    • I recently tried this cleanser again, after not fully loving it the first time, and my skin is way way way better. I don't know if it's in combination of what I'm using it with, or the season or what it is, but my skin is so so so much better. I adore this cleanser now, and fully recommend experimenting with your other products before you write it off if it's not working out for you.

    • I love this cleanser. I purchased this at a local Nordstrom and I am about to order a refill online.
      What I love:
      - It feels so gentle on my skin
      - I can use it in the morning and at night
      - Makes my skin feel soft and fresh
      - The smell is fruity but not too strong

      I love pairing this with her Oil Free moisturizer. I noticed a change in my skin tone since using these & I wish I would have taken a before and after picture. My skin is brighter and I haven't gotten the "occasional zit" in weeks. (I have been using this product for about 1.5 months-2 months.

      If you are looking for a basic everyday light cleanser I would really recommend this. Prior to using this cleanser I used a basic Neutrogena cleanser that I felt didn't do enough and a cleanser my dermatologist recommended. This product is even better then the one I purchased from my dermatologist (& cheaper)!

    • I love this product and have been using it for the past 2 years. I use it with my Clarisonic with the deep pore cleansing brush head. This gives me a deep clean without stripping my skin to make it even oilier. This is part of my routine to keep my pores clean and my face breakout free.

    • love this cleanser. it definitely removes all the dirt & oil built up from the day, but without damaging the skin! it's a foamless cleanser so may feel a little weird at first, but you'd be satisfied with the result. i usually leave it on for a few seconds before rinsing with warm water followed by cold water rinse.

    • I know, you've tried EVERYTHING out there and nothing seems to work. You've scrubbed, patted, gently rinsed, exfoliated, toned and have done every other word used in the skin care arsenal. But you face hasn't changed, you still have acne, your oily and frustrated.

      Believe me, I get it. I'm the girl who changes her pillow cases three times a week, who disinfects her cell phone, work phone and any other phone that comes near her cheek, the girl who washes her face correctly twice daily, who doesn't touch her face for fear of yet another bump or blemish. But after washing my face (twice a day) for the past three days, could my skin really be clearer? Can it really work this fast? But today I was told by a complete stranger how luminous my skin was!

      Not only are things clearing, spots brightening, but I actually cannot WAIT to wash my face again. It's not a burden, or a hassle, but a joy to wash my face with this product. The way my skin feels after washing, toning and moisturizing (all KS products) cannot be duplicated. I want to bottle up that feeling and have it with me all day. It's like.. letting fresh air into a damp and stale room, like sleeping on the finest cotton. And I'm no longer worrying about how my skin looks, but instead let the products do their thing. And boy are they doing their thing. - Thank you.

    • This cleanser is perfect to use with my Clarisonic. I always feel like it cleans my skin and leaves no residue. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it does leave my skin a little tight if I don't immediately follow with treatment or moisturizer.

    • I've used several of Kate's cleansers, liking them all. This one is my favorite to use during the summer months and any time my skin is breaking out or oily. A little goes along way and it gets my skin squeaky clean without leaving a residue or my skin feeling tight. It smells fresh. Just don't prefer the cap design.

    • I use this cleanser in conjunction with the Gentle Daily Wash. I like to use this cleanser one week out of every month, when my skin goes crazy with oil production and feels a little extra grimy and can use a deeper cleaning. This definitely helps keep my skin clear during any hormonal changes.

    • I tried this as part of Kate's Blemish Banisher kit.

      I really liked this cleanser; I felt like it cleaned "deep down" without irritation.

      It takes a lot to impress me with a cleanser, and while I did like this, I will not be repurchasing as it is a bit expensive.

    • I do not have acne, but I like to get hot and sweaty, either working out or getting dirty working in the garden. On those times, i like to have a cleanser that makes my skin feel extra clean but not stripped, and this does the job perfectly. I have even used this after I thought I had gotten into some poison ivy, as tea tree oil is known to cut the irritating oil in poison ivy. It worked like a charm. I will always keep this on hand.

    • My skin is extremely dry but will become oily in the t-zone upon using moisturizer. It is also extremely sensitive and acne-prone. I always have at least one zit, and my cheeks are covered in leftover hyper-pigmentation and redness from my acne. This cleanser has drastically reduced the redness in my cheeks and also almost cleared my forehead. I use it twice daily, and I love that it has started to gently bring my oil under control without stripping my skin like all of the drugstore cleansers I tried before. The short-term results are already awesome, and I'm excited to see how my skin does in the long-term! :)

    • One of the first Kate Somerville products I was recommended, and it did not disappoint.

      I have used both the Detox Daily and the Gentle Daily Wash, but this one does the trick when I fall off the regimen and I know I need to get my skin back on track. I feel a difference and freshness with each use, and I know the results I have to look forward to with this and other products paired together.

      I agree with the other reviews, though it may be costlier than drugstore products, the quality is unmatched, and such a small amount is needed that even the smaller cleanser has a very long life.

    • I wasn't sure if I should order this cleanser because the price is much more than my "drugstore" cleanser. However, it is worth EVERY penny -- and then some!!! You only need to use a very small (dime-sized) amount so it lasts a very long time. I think my face was breaking out before from my old cleanser not removing all of the makeup. This cleanser doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and it removes all of my makeup. LOVE it!!!

This cleanser is a lovely, mild first step to taking care of blemish prone skin. It is gentle and yet very effective at removing the whole day from your face. It cuts through oil for oily skin without leaving it dry. I don't even need a separate makeup remover because it takes everything off so gently! And the bottle lasts a long time.

    • The detox daily cleanser cleans really well and is not drying. It also feels good on the skin and smells nice. I wish it had a flip top instead of the twist dispenser because if it is turned upside down it will leak a little. I have not noticed a huge difference in my clogged pores though. I wish I knew something that would keep my pores cleaned out!!

I thought I tried every product available and was ready to try a dermatologist. I walked into sephora 3 years ago, I explained my issues (which was evident just by looking at my face) and made a LIST of all the products I had tried. The woman assured me that using your product would solve my problem and if not then go to a dermatologist. She gave me samples and the rest is history! I will NEVER buy another product for my face again. I LOVE all of your products. Thank you!!!

    • About two years ago my facialist recommended this product to me after I had a terrible hormonal breakout on the sides of my face. After trying every product on the market from drug store (Clean & Clear, Neutrogena) to dermatologist recommended (Cetaphil), plus designer face washes, this is the only one that's delivered results without drying out my skin. Added bonus: phenomenal packaging, no filmy residue, no smell, and you don't have to use much to FEEL CLEAN. I follow this up with the following regime:

      Goat Cream Moisturizer + Oil Free Moisturizer (they go great together!)
      Sunscreen serum (best sunscreen ever)

      CytoCell Energizing Treatment (I put it in the fridge and use it AM/PM)
      CytoCell Dark Circle (Also put it in the fridge which makes it feel like a mini spa treatment for my eyes every AM/PM)

    • I have fairly acne prone skin and finding a cleanser that will help fight the breakouts while not drying out my skin has always been a challenge. This is a great cleanser, my skin doesn't feel too tight after using it, just fresh and clean. It has helped with my existing acne and the clarity is getting better (my acne and scars tend to be very stubborn so it will take more than just a cleanser to fix it all, but this is a great first step toward improving my skin!) I use it twice a day and have not found it too harsh or drying, something that is so common with facial cleansers that are meant to help with acne. I was using the oil free moisturizer (I received the acne fighting kit for Christmas) but found that I actually need a bit more moisture at night so I switched to the daily nourish moisturizer, I've only it used for one day but so far I like it! No more shopping around for cleansers, I've found the one I'm going to stick with.

The directions are correct to use only a small amount. It can be thick and heavy if you use too much. I have adult acne so it is difficult to find a product that does not dry out my skin or make it break out. Presently, this does neither.

    • I have been using this cleanser for years and it has never disappointed me. I have suffered with adult hormonal acne since I was 22 and this cleanser has transformed my skin. I recommend using lukewarm water and to take a dime size amount of cleanser. Then build a lather in your hands and gently massage the cleanser on your face for about a minute, focusing on the problem areas. Then gently rinse off. I do not use a washcloth or those machine things on my face because my skin is too sensitive. Just my hands with the cleanser is enough. I tend to have a more combination skin, so I don't use the cleanser near my eyes or on the tops of my cheeks because those areas are more dry and do not breakout. However, the cleanser is gentle and has a citrus fragrance that is energizing in the morning. Many people compliment my complexion on a daily basis. They would never know or guess that I struggle with acne. My skin has a bright and clear complexion and this cleanser is truly the foundation to my skin success.

    • I love this face wash! It cleared up the acne I had leftover from my teen years on my forehead very quickly. The texture of my skin was pretty bumpy (kind of like perpetual goose bumps, but on my forehead, which was weird and embarrassing), but now it's completely smooth. I use this once daily in the morning (I use the Kate Somerville Purify Clarifying Cleanser at night because it's a little milder) with an electronic face brush and my skin has never felt so smooth and clean. It also looks amazingly bright and fresh. A little goes a long way, too. I only need about a dime-sized drop, so this tube lasts a long time.

      I just wish it came in a travel sized tube that wasn't part of a kit.

    • I have been using this cleanser for two weeks now and so far so good hopefully it stays this way. I was very hesitant about starting the acne product but I have yet to be disappointed.

    • I have been looking for a cleanser for my acne-prone skin for a long time and I finally found it! My skin is also very sensitive and this is very gentle, yet it manages to sweep away make-up and oil! I will never be without!

    • Love this cleanser! Perfect for oily or combination skin. Very refreshing and helps keep break outs at bay!

    • I have slightly oily skin that gets dehydrated by the air conditioner. This cleanser cleans really well without drying out my skin. It does not clog pores. It is not harsh. I have tried a number of different brands of cleansers, and this is the best cleanser that I have used. The Gentle Daily Wash cleanser is also a good one, but I usually use this one .

    • I love it! My face feel very clean but not over dried even as the weather turns colder. I've also noticed my acne scars fading faster.

    • I don't typically read product reviews because they are so subjective and for as many good reviews, there are often the same number of bad ones. However, I am very confident about the value of this product and want to share. I have used many, many different facial and dermatologist-recommended products and this is absolutely one of the best face washes I have ever used. I have been using it for about a year now, after I received a sample at Sephora last fall. I was travelling for work, out of town almost every week, and the combination of poor diet, lack of sleep, and time on airplanes left my skin constantly broken out. To be completely honest, I typically have good skin, with relatively few breakouts, so I was really discouraged when nothing I tried worked -until I found the Kate Somerville products, particularly the Daily Detox Cleanser. It feels purifying without being too drying. I like to occasionally switch up my products, and now that I am using Rx topical anti-aging and acne prevention creams from my dermatologists, I want to try something more gentle. But, I'm so impressed with the Kate Somerville brand, that I plan to try the gentle wash! Everyone is different, but if you have acne-prone skin, you should definitely try the Daily Detox Cleanser!

    • I've tried so many cleansers over the years, but this is the best one I've found for my sensitive but blemish-prone skin. My face feels clean after using it, but not irritated.

    • Over the years I have tried face wash after face wash and finally resorted to using plain Dove bar soap because face washes cost more than soap and they weren't doing anything for my acne or complexion. This is the first ever face wash I have ever used that has made a difference in my breaking out and over all complexion. My skin feels clean wihout the dried out feeling after washing and I don't experience buring from the active ingredients for acne like with other washes. I don't require extra scrubbing when I wear make up like with soap or other face washes. If you have an issue with acne, this is the only wash you want to use.

    • I love this product. My skin feels super fresh and clear after using this. If I don't use this for a few days, I see a noticeable difference. I am happy to see that the bonus size is available!

    • I have tried many different cleansers over the years and couldnt believe the difference this has made in my skin! Not drying and removes makeup really well. Kate's Detox line is a dream!

    • The cleanser is amazing! It smells so good and lathers nicely. At first I didn't think this cleanser made a huge impact on my face (which is very very sensitive and acne prone) but when I switched back to the purpose cleanser i noticed that i started breaking out again. This cleanser is definitely on the pricey side but really worth every penny.

    • This cleanser is great my skin is clean but not dried out!!! My acne is fading away quickly! I will be ordering the larger size next time.

    • I have been using this product for a couple of years now, and I love it. My skin can be sensitive at times, and other more expensive products out there have made my face breakout possibly from the extra oils in the cleansers. This cleanser however does what it says and cleans! After a wash my face feels refreshed, not too dry and not too oily. I would highly recommend this product.

    • My skin is very reactive. It's sensitive and oily and prone to blemishes. My skin responds very well to Salisylic acid so I thought this would be the product for me - but after using it my eye lids got very itchy and my face broke out. I tried it a few more times to see if it was just because my skin was adjusting but there's no way this cleanser is right for me. I think the tea-tree oil in it might be a bit too harsh for my skin. I'm going to send this one back and try the gentle cleanser instead.

    • I've been using this cleanser (and other Kate acne products) for over three months now and it's the best cleanser I have ever used. I'm so thankful to have found this line because my skin has been transformed!

      The only thing I would change is the packaging on the cleanser. It's very difficult to use with one hand. I often drop too much of the cleanser onto my hand because I am trying to use two hands. Haha that's why I'm buying the luxury size with the pump. But I would love a smaller size so I don't have the travel with the luxury size!

    • This product definitely leaves your skin feeling clean and fresh. It also helps with keeping breakouts at bay...highly recommended if you have occasional to frequent breakouts!

    • I was introduced to your product line when I was at the Four Seasons in Maui, every year I went back I kept saying I wanted the Kate facial! I started ordering your products when I got home this year just so I could spoil myself and have it all the time. Kate your Products are the Very best I have used, and this is No Joke, You have done an outstanding job and it works fantastic for me. This cleanser is a great start to use before all the other products, I am so glad I found your line!

    • Kate's Acne line-up is remarkable!

      I don't have severe acne (just a break out every now and then), but since using the cleanser and two other Kate acne products...I forgot what a zit looks like. Truly amazing. Very gentle (doesn't irritate my eyes when i'm removing make up). 10 stars.

    • Takes off all my makeup. I used to use a oil base precleanser, now I don't have to! Smell is a bit strong, but not unpleasant. I have combo/oily acne prone skin and I find this to be a tiny bit more drying than the gentle wash. But I like to be sqeaky clean before bed so I like that it gets all the crud off my face.

    • I wasn't sure which cleanser to try since all of them were suitable for my skin. I decided on the Detox mainly because of milia that I just can't get rid of, along with monthly sporadic hormonal and/or stress acne . I'm quite happy with my decision. Detox cleans great and you don't need much. I just drop about a dime size onto my finger tips and massage it in for about a minute. My entire face and neck are so clean and perfectly prepped for my serums and lotions as I alternate between products from Kate as I have a handful of issues I want to treat and/or prevent.

    • I have never been a fan of using make-up remover then washing, and of course have found make-up on my toning cloth every time. With this cleanser by Kate, I don't need to use a make-up remover to get clean skin! I promise you will never see a hint of make-up on your toning cloth!!

    • I don’t really have acneic skin but received a sample of Detox Daily Cleanser and then had to buy the full size! This is the perfect cleanser for any skin type, it’s not over drying but gets all of my makeup off without leaving any residue. My number one favorite, will always buy.

    • I know you can use this both day and night, but it does more wonders in the morning because of the cooling sensation it wakes you up. Great with the clarisonic cleansing device as well. This cleanser leaves your face nice and ready to apply your skin care products.

    • I usually use the gentle daily wash but when I get those pesky pimples I switch to detox and it works flawlessly. I love the citrusy smell and I love that it actually does its job without over-drying my skin. Most cleansers that are for acne-prone skin completely dehydrate, but this one miraculously has found a perfect combination of salicylic and aloe to clear up the skin and keep it's natural moisture barrier in check......A+

    • There are so many clients I consult on a daily basis where I work when it comes to skin care and as much as I hate to be biased I don't hold back when it comes to Kate Somerville. Her Detox Cleanser is the key to beginning a healthy skin care regimen for anyone having acne concerns or maintenance from unexpected breakouts. Goes great w/ the oil free moisturizer, clarifying treatment toner & the EradiKate Acne Treatment! I personally guarantee you will see results! All of my clients have!

    • I am a 60+ lady with some large pores, but no acne. I love the clean skin that I get with this cleanser. It has a lot of Vit. C and leaves my skin feeling great - never tight or dry. I typically don't like scented products, but this cleaner smells like oranges and is very pleasant.
