Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser

When I first came across the Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser, it sounded like a true miracle product for me: acne fighting, oil-free, AND gel formula (my favorite)! I snatched this stuff up and have been using it ever since.



I must say that I love this cleanser. My skin has been constantly smooth and acne-free (aside from the few here and there from that time of the month), and has even been less oily. This cleanser contains ginger root which is used to absorb oil and soothe the skin, as well as cinnamon bark extract that is used for its antibacterial properties.


Basically, my crazy, oily, acne prone skin has been shockingly under control. I have a few minor complaints about the product, but definitely nothing that would keep me from repurchasing.

First, when I hear the word gel, I think of a thick substance. Gel cleansers are my favorite, mainly because I feel like they really clean my skin well, but of course that could very well be all in my head. This cleanser is ridiculously thin, and not something I would consider a gel formula. Like I said though, this is not something that affects the performance of the product. The only other complaint I have is the smell. This product smells great, but it is SO strong that it will clear your sinuses within seconds. This only becomes a problem if you are clumsy (like me) and occasionally get cleanser in your eyes. Again, nothing too serious.

Overall, I love the way this cleanser feels and the way it clears up my skin. I like that it is hydrating while being oil-free and leaves my skin moisturized and not greasy. I would definitely recommend this cleanser to anyone with oily skin as I am sure you will love it as much as I do. There are more products to this Blue line from Kiehl's that I would now like to try, and will definitely be purchasing this product again! The Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser can be purchased from the Kiehl's website.

What is your favorite type of cleanser?
