This gel-to-foam transformative cleanser provides a distinctive cleansing experience and simplifies two steps of cumbersome daily double cleansing. When massaging all over the face and contacting with water, the gel transforms into a rich, creamy lather that gives the skin a refreshing non-drying cleanse without any tightness.

  • Quickly cleanses and refreshes the skin, yet gentle to skin.
  • Leaves skin soft and supple, without tightness.
  • Helps achieve the look of a fresh complexion.
  • Non-drying.
  • Non-stripping.
  • As Makeup Remover: Take the product into palm and smooth onto dry skin in a circular motion. Apply a small amount of tepid water to activate the formula into a lather and massage for another 30 seconds. Rinse clean with lukewarm water. Avoid eye area.
  • As Foam Cleanser: Wet face first. Take the product into palm, rub together into a lather, then massage into face in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid eye area.

    Clean feeling

    This cleanser leaves skin so smooth. It is not drying. It's a staple in my skin care routine. All the C3 products are great!

    Great product!

    Love everything about this product. The amount dispensed is just right and it really only takes a pea amount which makes the product last very long time. Not a lot of lather is created but you don't need the lather to get the job well done. I've never seen a product dispensed so slowly but , again, it controls that you just need a little to achieve great results. Smell is very delicate which I like. It removes all my heavy makeup with just two washes and it leaves the skin feeling fresh and not stripped. I use this product on its own so not sure about using the "oil before cleaning" people are referring to. Highly recommended and will be purchasing again.

    I love this cleanser. It has a light, pleasant cherry blossom scent, and while it doesn't give much of a lather, I dont feel like it needs it, not every cleanser needs to be a foaming cleanser. I will say though, I definitely recommend using an oil cleanser before moving to this cleanser to ensure all makeup is removed.

    Use The Combo

    Stopped at the MAC store to check out their new skincare line. I was fortunate enough to have a salesperson demonstrate the correct way to use the oil cleanser first before the gel to foam cleanser. It makes a big difference; my skin felt hydrated all day. My new favorite cleansers!

    Favorite Cleanser

    This cleanser is just fabulous. Great texture, suitable for sensitive skin, wonderful smell, non stripping. Makes happy every time I use it. Do not understand the negative reviews that seem to lament d/c of a previous version of the product. Love this whole line. Fantastic.

    Bring back the old Lightful C! This formula is wack.

    Super disappointed with the new formula they have. I loved the old product line, literally going to have to switch brands which is unfortunate.

    Cause of acne on my face

    I bought a washing gel, used it for about three weeks, severe rashes began on my entire face, even in those places that had never been inflamed. At first I was looking for the cause in something else, but as soon as I removed the gel, my face began to gradually return to normal. Who does not want to get rid of post-acne marks and wait until acne on the face disappears, I strongly recommend not to buy this gel.
