    VV - Finally
    Finally, a cleanser that actually slightly calms down the skin right away. Really impressed so far. Ordered Calm Serum after trying this.
    Chan - best cleanser
    This is the only cleanser I've ever used that hasn't broken me out, I was relying on wipes and miceller waters (that were also breaking me out) for a very long time until I found this. Face feels squeaky clean after using it and I wear a heavy duty sunscreen every day so it's really fab. Skin feels calmed after using it, a little dry but I prefer that to something that leaves a film. Love it, don't discontinue this!!!!
    AH - Good clenaser
    The calm cleanser is a lightweight mild gel cleanser that does not dry out or irritate the skin further. It foams up lightly but is extremely gentle. Some people have been complaining about the smell but I do not find it that noticeable, the smell does not bother me.

    Catherine - Fantastic
    Brilliant cleanser, I am re ordering. I have the whole calm range and its done wonders to my skin after having a reaction from make up I didn't know where to turn. This range brought my skin to better than before the reaction.
    Lisa - Works ok but smells terrible
    Seems to work fine (don't notice any material difference to the clear skin cleanser) but smells terrible. The packaging tends to over dispense.
    butterfly101 - great non irritating cleanser
    I have previously used the resist and pore normalizing cleansers for combination/oily skin and found that they left my face feeling a little tight and also a little irritated around my nose. Thought i would give the calm cleaner a try and it's really good. My face feels clean without the tightness and sore nose. It lathers up nicely and is the best cleanser for oily skin i have ever tried. Just ordered my 2nd bottle. please don't ever discontinue this product. I also appreciate the fact that paula's choice products are not tested on animals. Keep up the good work.
    Alex - An average cleanser
    This cleanser didn't do my skin any harm but I can't say it did it any good either.

    I have acne, sensitive skin, rosacea and oily skin so this product sounded like just the thing for me. I didn't notice any calming effect on my skin by using this cleanser as one would expect. I wouldn't say it made matters worse either. As cleansers go, I would say this cleanser is pretty average and therefore not worth the price. I would probably purchase/repurchase again if it weren't so expensive.
    Gabrièlé - Great for N/C skin with eczema tendecies
    This has become my new favourite out of the PC cleansers. The texture foams a little and feels rich and cushioning yet leaving it clean on my normal/combination highly irritable skin. I used to use the hydralight but sometimes i just got frustrated with the lack of foam. Just a heads up to anyone who has N/C skin but also dry patches, I've gone with the Normal to Dry Toner and this combo leaves my skin feeling so balanced i could forget to pick up my moisturiser..... Good Work Paula!
