Seaweed Clean and PureI have tried everything on my sensitive face - lotions, potions, soaps, dry pads, oil free, oil that lathers, you name it. This is by far the most amazing product that is smooth, doesn't cause blotches or redness, keeps your skin soft and yet deeply clean.The seaweed extract must absorb the oils and debris and as it does so creates abeautiful result.The price is right too!

face sudsThis is gentle and feels soothing, very natural and earthy, loving it. Will buy again. I also use on my feet. Am ordering the seaweed night cream to try also.

BEST cleanser for dry, sensitive skinI have incredibly difficult skin -- dry, sensitive, and acne-prone -- and this cleanser has been the absolute best answer for me when it comes to moisturizing, gentle cleansing.The consistency is quite thick and creamy, which I love, and you only need a very small amount to distribute it. For those accustomed to more liquid cleansers where you feel it lathering all over your face, this may take some getting used to, but I personally enjoy the feeling of massaging it in circles to properly apply it (according to the instructions).I still use the Mario Badescu makeup remover for stubborn eyeliner, but after patting dry, my skin feels very clean and -- for the first time ever -- moisturized after cleansing. Usually my face feels very tight and even painful afterward, but not with this cleanser.Finally, please don't let the comments about the smell scare you away from trying this! It must be highly based on personal preference, because I hate the smell of fishiness/fresh seaweed, and I don't get that smell from this at ALL (even with the small bits of seaweed). In fact, I think it has a lovely fresh, creamy smell. If you're at all in doubt, please give this a try!

OK, but can't stand smellI just started using this line, and while I really like it and it is really helping me, I just can't get past the smell of this cleanser. It starts off OK, but after about 20 seconds, you can smell the seaweed, which is "fishy" smelling. The smell doesn't last much after washing your face, but I just am picky that way. So, if you can stand the smell, then it would be great for you, very mild and doesn't dry your skin out at all. Also, like the other reviewers, it is quite thick, also something to get used to. I exchanged for the Enzyme cleanser and am hopeful that will work since it has had many great reviews. Love the rest of the line so far!

not the best daily cleanseri bought this along with a slew of Mario products when i was trying a new skincare regime. it's thicker than i would like, and doesn't lather at all. it's silly of me, but i do equate lather with cleaning- so while this means it doesn't dry out your skin at all, it just seems too gunky to rinse off. especially when using my face brush, it just take a lot of rinsing to get it off. the bits of seaweed are a visual touch because since it's rinsed off so quickly they can't possibly add any 'mineral' to your face as marketed. the smell is natural, a little pungent because of the seaweed. i'm dismayed to not love this, i normally love seaweed products, but i was annoyed picking out seaweed out of my hairline after rinsing and toweling. it definitely does not strip your face, so maybe with all the other cons, it's best to use it in the shower only. Again to get any of the 'anti-inflammatory' benefits it claims, you'd have to actually leave it on a little bit. The seaweed toner or mask might be better for this claim. does include cetyl alcohol and the parabens, thankfully it's not an outrageous price.
