Not "great" at all
Reviewed on August 14, 2017

I had very high hopes for this cleanser, seeing how it cleared many people's acne. Before this, I tried dark angels. That one did NOT work either. I have cystic acne, pretty bad, all along my chin and cheeks. This completely worsened it and I had the worst, most painful pimples come in after one day. Also, my blackheads multiplied and they were literally the size of my large freckles on my face. When I used my toner, a green residue was left on my cotton pad, like I didn't rinse it all off. Not the best cleanser

The Lush Fresh Catastrophic Cosmetic mask is awesome. I use it 3 times a week. I have also stopped eating red meat and dairy and started taking a non dairy probiotic (PB8) and have not had a cystic flare up since I altered my diet. My gut and hormones were a mess from taking antibiotics for acne. We are all different but sometimes there is something we consume that feeds inflammation or makes our hormones and gut imbalanced. I have also began looking at product packaging and choose ones that are SLS free. Lush has a good agua marine one but Giovanni brand has a line called DTox that I like.
great feeling

Yes its very messy. Yes the smell is not the best. However this is a great product. It is gentle which is good for sensitive skin but it also exfoliates. It leaves my skin feeling really soft after. Calms my skin down.

The most amazing cleanser I have ever tried (and believe you me that would be A LOT) it feels extremely gentle though it has many exfoliating properties. It is preferably for people with oily skin but has helped calm and smooth my dry skin. I'm beginning to believe it's one of the key products used in completely clearing my skin. The only downfall is, it runs out rather quickly which is expensive in the long run if used as a daily cleanser but other than that I HIGHLY recommend.

Nice and gentle
Reviewed on August 2, 2016

This is a nice and gentle exfoliating cleanser. I have extremely delicate/reactive skin and have had no issues using this on a daily basis. I couldn't say if it does much for acne or oil control, but I don't rely on cleansers for that since they're on the skin for such a short amount of time. I do need physical exfoliation as my skin doesn't tolerate alpha hydroxy acids and this gets the job done well. I have also noticed fewer clogged pores and blackheads as a result of the mild but regular exfoliation. My skin feels extremely smooth afterwards and not at all tight or dry (one of my biggest issues with most cleansers). It is also calming and I notice a reduction in surface redness after use. I would consider repurchasing, though I'm also interested in trying the Aqua Marina cleansing "roll".

Did you try the aqua marina cleanser ? I have just tried it out the past 3 days and its making my face extremely dry in patches on my face
Reviewed on March 29, 2016

I started using Herbalism as of a month ago. i did see change at first, but after a while my blemishes came back. it also does not help when coming to minimize the redness. its overall good at making your skin smooth tho. although i did buy it because it said it would even squinting as well, didn't work its magic on that either. it is a bit weird at first when using, you get used to it tho.

I am absolutely obsessed with this face wash. it moisturizes and helps with the dry patches on my skin. I have only been using this product for about a week and I can already see a difference. I have finally found something that continues to improve my acne. try it!

Pricey but WORTH EVERY PENNY and can go a long ways

I came across Lush Cosmetics through Youtube and heard how wonderful Herbalism was for acne prone skin. I know everyone's skin is different but it REALLY worked wonders for mine! I have oily-combo skin with random dry patches and I've been fighting acne since middle school (I'm 24 now) so I decided give Herbalism a try and wow it's made a great difference in my skin! I don't get the deep painful cyst acne anymore, and if I do breakout, it's a small pimple that goes away after a day or two. I use Herbalism in the morning and night (sometime's I'll swap it with Lush's Angels On Bare Skin cleanser at night) Every week I do a salicylic acid face scrub (I like the Yes To Tomatoes one) and I also use Witch Hazel as a toner, and I do any spot treatments with Lush's Grease Lightning, finish it off with some light moisturizer and this has worked! ( I also change my pillowcases every few days and TRY to eat better and not touch my face a lot)

I also wanted to say that if you have a LUSH store near you, go inside and ask for a sample of any of their products and you can test them out first. That's how I first tried Herbalism. The nearest Lush store is about a hour away from me so after my first visit I end up ordering online which can add up quick because i buy the big tub of it and with shipping costs but I think it's well worth the money. hope this helps!

Awesome! Natural and AWESOME!!

I had acne problems randomly start up at the age of 31. Deep "zits" that would scar if popped, but pulsed with pain if left alone. I did so research but found nothing natural work to well. I lucked out and came by LUSH at the mall and went in and browsed around looking for something to try. I came across Hebalism and gave it a shot. It started clearing my skin as existing pimples faded off and less and less new ones re appeared. It's now been 6-7 months and my skin is pimple free and no scars. I've been wanting to come share my experience as I know how frustrating acne can be!! I'd recommend trying this natural product. Wash with Herbalism in AM and before bed in PM and don't miss any days and I think you'll be presently surprised in 1-2 weeks. I hope this helps someone(s) out there!

Finally! after a long skin care journey

I have a problem with dry skin, when my skin is dry it produces more oil/sebum and then I break out terribly with cystic ance and regular pimples all over my face. I first cut dairy out of my diet which drastically reduced my cystic acne but I wasn't out of the woods yet. Then I switched from commercial chemical cleansers and exfoliants to all natural products. I started with Giovanni's Dtox cleansers and scrubs which totally cleared up my cystic acne and reduced regular pimples but I was still having regular (smaller) breakouts. Then I found Lush's Herbalism. This stuff totally keeps my face moisturized while gently exfoliating and cleasing. My face is finally healing with an ever so rare pimple here and there, nothing compared to what I was dealing with before! I also use Lush's Enzymion Facial Moisturizer, it smells like almonds and is light enough to keep my pores unclogged.

Made my skin less red
Reviewed on January 3, 2015

I use this along with Lush's Grease Lightning.

I have always had red/pink cheeks and nose along with acne. This has taken almost all of the red out of my face; it's amazing. My acne is practically gone too. I'm 24 and thought I was always going to have acne but I think I finally found products that work for me
