I have used this cleanser to help with oiliness and to soothe my skin after waxing. A big pet peeve of mine is inaptly chosen titles. This is soo not a lotion. There is nothing creamy about its consistency whatsoever. It feels most like a toner. It is very liquidy.

This product has witch hazel in it to absorb oil, aloe vera gel to calm skin and extracts like bladder wrack (a type of seaweed: fucus vesiculosus) and algae to help nourish.

I like its pale celadon color and its fresh, sweet cucumber mixed with baby powder scent.

I received a sample bottle from the company. It has a screw-off cap and a hole on top.

When you turn it over, drops of liquid come out. I squeeze the bottle so more comes out faster. It does not say how many fluid ounces are in it. A full size bottle can be bought here in varying prices for varying sizes: 8 fl oz. for $15, 16 fl oz. for $26 and 32 oz for $45.

I don't know if I will ever buy this when the sample runs out. I find it is quite helpful for when I am too lazy to wash my face and I want to degrease.
