Rated 5 out of 5 by from Foamy This is my favorite face wash so far! Works great, leaves skin clean without over drying! Very foamy and pleasant when applying to your face. Try it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought on a whim.. but I love it!! I have only been using this product for about a week and a half as I bought it as I left my other face wash at home but it was cheap and everything that it says on the bottle really appealed to me and my skin type. I am so glad I decided to buy it though. Ever since using it I can see the difference in my skin. I have oily, blotchy skin but whenever I use this I feel so refreshed and so much more confident. I really recommend this. It is such good quality and feels so nice on the skin. It really does make a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best over the counter wash for my skin I had the worst breakout of my life so needed to take drastic action. I normally use natural products, or dermatologist products in emergencies. I ran to Boots to search for an acne wash to tide me over until I could get to my dermatologist. Something said to give this a try. I'm so that glad I did. It felt lovely after the first wash. It left my face cleansed but not dried out. Soft and slightly dewy. I know it is key when you have oily skin not to dry it out as this makes it produce more oil. My skin is oily and sensitive, which is a frustrating combination. It gets super oily around my cycle. This wash doesn't irritate or strip my skin. Just cleans and balances it. I love how this wash makes my skin feel and I actually look forward to using it! I'm using it with the organic cleanser and toner. Very impressed! ...And I'm not easily impressed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very drying I have combination skin and I find this product very drying...not just on the dry areas either. The oily areas are also dry and tight after using this. I know it's meant to reduce shine but it works a little too well! Really helps clear pores though however, due to the drying feel, I don't think I'd buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have been using this face wash for as long as boots have been making it (they discontinued the previous version and this was the replacement) It's great for my sensitive skin and I always seem to be ready for a new lot of it when the 3 for 2 offers are on which is great for my pocket too. I use 2 pumps of this product and it feels like I'm putting velvet onto my face, rinses off really easily too. Boots, please don't ever discontinue this product as I'd struggle to find a replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for general face wash but can dry your skin out Simple packaging and I like the pump/foam action. Smell is gentle and not over powering and is cheap for a general face wash. Not too keen on the idea that the foam has to be used on dry skin. I found it dried my skin out and still left my skin oily. When I used it on damp skin and washed off with warm water it worked perfectly without drying my skin out but unfortunately did not combat the oily nose, which is the main reason I bought it for, as it was back within moments. It was good enough to mattify the rest of my face.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I have combination skin so I thought this product would work well as a day to day cleanser, as I tend to get a lot of shine in my oily areas. However this dried my skin out, made it feel very tight and made my dry areas even drier. I'd say this is more suited towards those with very oily skin or those who really want a deep cleanse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fairly decent wash I used to use the original Botanics face wash for blemish prone skin and that was an excellent face wash. I'd have given that a full 5 stars. However, since Boots have changed the product and modified ingredients, this face wash does not meet the quality of the last one. It's still good, and to be honest I think the SIMPLE face wash does an equally good job. Boots, Please please go back to the original blemish prone face wash, that was THE BEST product in the whole range and I am so disappointed it has been changed/modified. My skin has suffered enough and the Blemish Prone face wash was working so well I had luckily bought loads before you changed it!! Now it's just not the same :(
