First, I would like to say that I was able to buy a sample of this product. I enjoyed the soft aroma of apricots and I didn't think the ground apricot seeds were too abrasive as others have expressed in their reviews. Although I personally do not like to exfoliate daily.
I bought this product in my quest for a natural cleanser with excellent ingredients and that would remove all the makeup off my face. This product does not do an effective job at removing makeup. It leaves the skin feeling soft but you need to proceed with a different cleanser if you had makeup on and that defeats the purpose of this cleanser for me. It is better suited as a second cleanse once you have already removed your makeup to exfoliate your skin. Unfortunately, I don't think this product works for my sensitive acne prone skin.
The product definitely does not leave the skin stripped of moisture as some cleansers do. I didn't notice a minimizing appearance of my pores within this month of use, but with time it might. I did find my skin was less dull.
In my personal opinion the product does not work as an every day morning cleanse because of the apricot seeds. It doesn't work as a nighttime cleanser because it doesn't remove all my makeup. At the price point it is found I think it would be better to find an alternative cleanser that effectively removes makeup.
If you wear none to a little makeup I think you will enjoy this product. It smells wonderful and leaves your skin feeling renewed. I love the ingredients in the product and this is a great company to buy from.
Tata Harper- Nourishing Oil Cleanser
This is a gentle cleanser that is supposed to cleanse your skin and dissolve makeup. I think it is a gentle cleanser. It leaves your skin feeling very soft. It is full of wonderful ingredients that are beneficial to the skin. The aroma is very fresh.
Although I enjoyed this product it did not work towards completely removing my makeup. It does however remove some. I always felt the need to go in with another cleanser after using this to completely remove my makeup and therefore felt it defied the purpose of this product. I wanted the ingredients that were placed to cleanse to penetrate my skin and yet I had to wash them off to fully cleanse my skin.
I think this product may work best as a morning cleanser. However I feel divided as to if I would repurchase. I'm not sure if my pores love this product and with the $64 price tag I think I would enjoy a product that would be multifunctional for me.
