I bought this Enessa Monoi Soothing Cleanser and the Sea-Chi moisturizing crme, and my skin has never looked better. So glad I tried these.

I love this cleanser. It takes off mascara, and all traces of other make-up. It leaves your face feeling clean but not dry. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't so pricey .

I begin and end my day with this wonderful gentle but, very effective cleanser. I am 60, so I need a gentle cleanser but, I was still getting a few breakouts. Monoi Soothing Cleanser keeps my skin clear and smooth.

In the past I have used oily cleansers, because I suffer from dry, sensitive skin. I have always felt that my face wasn't as clean as it should have been, and the makeup wasn't totally removed. This cleanser is creamy, yet more like a gel cleanser, but doesn't strip all the moisture off my face. The other surprising thing that I discovered is that it has a "cooling" effect, which is great if you are in menopause and suffer from hot flashes! I look forward to using this at the end of the day, and will not do without!

Love this cleanser however the pump dispenses at a weird angle and I have to make sure I position my hand just right or it squirts out all over the counter. At this price I hate to see it wasted.

This wonderful cleanser is a must in my daily routine. The first time I purchased it, I wasn't too sure if I liked it. So I went back to my usual cleanser. But, somehow I kept returning to Monoi Soothing Cleanser. It became clear to me this is the better cleanser for my skin.

In the winter I started to suffer from red, itchy skin. This year I tried Monoi Soothing Cleanser and it did the trick. My face has never felt this smooth. Only concern to me is the glass container in the bathroom. I do wish it was plastic. I decant it into a plastic dispenser to insure no accidents.

Oh, my, this is fantastic! It really does do a good job of smoothing my skin. I am 77 years old, and the skin on my face looks wonderful!

As a cleanser for dry/sensitive skin, it is probably quite adequate. However, it promises to remove all traces of makeup. It does not remove the drugstore brand makeup I wear for adequate coverage. I still had to rely on cold cream. Also, with active and healing oily acne rosacea, I can tell you that it stings like crazy on broken skin. While it may be soothing to otherwise clear skin, it is not a product I would recommend if you have any breakouts or irritations.

Nice mild cleanser that seems to leave no residue on the skin and is quick to rinse off. Does not have a strong scent which is a plus for anybody with allergies.

I spent all last winter trying different facial cleansers, different combinations of anti-aging products and all kinds of moisturizers to stop the itching and redness caused by winter dryness and, ahem--by age! But this year I'm using Monoi Soothing Cleanser, and it's great because all the dryness & irritation is GONE. My skin looks better than it has in quite a few years if I may say so myself! LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

Cleans and doesn't seem to strip my skin.

While this initially left my skin very soft, I ended up breaking out more from it, and will be returning it. It's a bit hard to rinse off, and it's hard to impossible to use less because of the action of the pump. I use other Enessa products with pumps, but haven't had the same problem.

I really like this cleanser. It is very different from any cleanser I have used and I have tried many. I love the fragrance. You don't need to use a lot to receive the benefits of this product. The bottle may look small, but, it lasts and lasts.

Wonderful cleanser. Smells nice and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. It is NOT a makeup remover.

Fine. But not as good as other Isabella products I've ordered. It doesn't seem to do much of anything one way or the other.

For years I used Cetaphil on my mature, dry, sensitive, rosacea prone face, but Enessa's Monoi Soothing Cleanser has proven to be so much better for my skin!! I love how very little product you need! Just a tiny dot in your palm! And it truly soothes my skin with its sumptuous ingredients!! Love it!!

My dermatologist diagnosed rosacea a few years ago. Last year I found Enessa through Isabella and absolutely love this product. . .

Absolutely the best facial cleanser. All natural, removes make-up, doesn't dry out your skin, and a little goes a long way. It's perfect.

Blurry vision and icky black residue in the corners of my eyes are my complaints about this cleanser if I use it to remove mascara. I like how smooth it leaves my skin, but it's disastrous for my eyes. Luckily I only wear mascara occasionally. . .

I was wondering if this cleanser would live up to the rave reviews on your site, but it truly does! It is so gentle that my skin never feels dry or stretched -- it simply feels clean and soothed. I am now in love with all the Enessa products. Thank you for offering such wonderful self care products - I love that they are not only good for my skin but good for our planet as well!

Have to agree with almost of the other positive reviews of this product gentle yet good cleanser that does not leave your face feeling"tight" or dried out. It does NOT produce a sudsy lather, but leaves your face feeling clean. I've used quite a few higher end cleaners & LOVE this one!!

As a woman with rosacea, Enessa products that are labeled as safe or good for those with rosacea, truly are. Many brands SAY they are, but irritate my skin. This is a gentle but effective cleanser.

The ABSOLUTELY BEST cleanser I've ever used and like many women, I've used a lot. Cleans off ALL of my makeup at night but NEVER leaves my skin feeling tight. I hate that feeling and have never been able to find a cleanser that doesn't do it until now. Wonderful, wonderful cleanser!

My skin feels smooth and clean however just one pump doesn't offer much of a lather. I'm still getting used to the fragrance and try to assure myself that the smell helps aid in the cleansing.

Best facial cleanser I have ever used. I hate going to the shopping mall cosmetic counters and at age 55 I decided to treat myself to something better than the drug store products. Wow, this cleanser is amazing. I have combination skin and it makes my skin feel clean and refreshed. No tightening or heavy fragrance either. I use it nightly and In the morning my face feels like it was somehow rejuvenated. Nice!

Nice cleanser that goes a long way and leaves face feeling clean and moisturized. Wish for a different way to control the amount needed, as the pump does the same amount each time.

I use this cleanser every morning and it gives my skin an incredibly clean feel. The wonderful light natural scent and the creamy gel quality offers a soothing and awakening facial experience. It is gentle and effective and like all of Enessa products, so nourishing for the skin. I am hooked!

This cleanser truly does provide the gentlest, most thorough cleaning I have ever experienced in all my years of trying various cleaners. It only takes a little cleanser to do the job, and the end result is skin that does not feel tight, dry, or filmy--just soft and clean. This is a product I will continue buying as long as it is available.

You can use $400 serums and shun UV rays all you want, but if you neglect thoroughly cleansing your face, you won't be getting the kind of results you could be. For those of us with skin that's either ''mature,'' sensitive, or on the dry side, it's challenging to find a cleanser that will cleanse thoroughly without stripping the skin's natural oils. Equally challenging is finding a creamy cleanser that doesn't leave a residue. Because any form of residue left on the skin will prevent it from ''breathing'' and will act as a barrier from nourishing it with serums and moisturizers, starting with a truly clean face every a.m. and p.m. cannot be overemphasized.

Michelle Ornstein has come up with a breakthrough product, the perfect everyday facial cleanser for dry and sensitive skin -- even skin with rosacea. It's gentle yet effective, removing every last trace of makeup or debris from the day, while balancing and soothing the skin, leaving it hydrated. Read more...

Michelle uses natural foaming agents from coconut oil and organic Aloe Vera leaf juice. For hydration, there's exotic Tahitian Monoi oil, while Red Seaweed and Lamineria extracts stimulate blood circulation and eliminate toxins. Organic essential oils of Lavender and Petit Grain are highly antiseptic and calming, leaving your skin feeling fresh and clean, but with no signs of being ''overly cleansed.''

In the past, I've encouraged using a system of double cleansing -- first with a creamy cleanser, followed with a gel cleanser. With Michelle's new formulation, we now have the best of both worlds in one easy step.
Ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf Juice*, Purified Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Coco- Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Raw Honey*, Vegetable Glycerin, Golden Jojoba*, Tahitian Monoi Oil, Red Seaweed Extract, Laminaria Extract, Pomegranate Extract*, Green Tea Extract*, Japanese Honeysuckle Extract, Bladderwrack Extract, Xanthan Gum, Essential Oils Of Lavender*, Petit Grain*. * Certified Organic
