  • Great Cleanser

    Rachel April 30, 2019

    I started using this cleanser after I had suffered with hormonal acne and this is the only cleanser that works. I was previously using a cleanser with salicylic acid and all that did was dry and irritate my skin. As soon as I swapped to the mudd cleanser I noticed a decrease in my breakouts after one week and no irritation at all. This is the best cleanser I have ever used.

  • Happy thank you

    Christopher S. February 12, 2019

    Bought for my children but tried myself first and it is a terrific product. Looking forward to trying others from OSEA as well.

  • Love it!

    Heidi H. January 24, 2019

    I’ve love love loved the Ocean Cleansing Mudd –– perfect for my blemish-prone skin. You can feel that it’s working and I love that. Plus, it smells amazing!

  • Ocean cleansing mud

    Stephanie J. January 23, 2019

    I love how clean my skin feels after using this product. I use the vitamin c scrub with it a few times a week making it a good exfoliator.

  • Mud is a Girl's Best Friend

    Sarah January 07, 2019

    As someone who has sensitive combination skin, finding a face wash has always, always been a challenge. Either it works a little bit for a while and then blemishes come back with a vengeance, or it irritates my skin so much that I was probably better off without ever touching the stuff. However, such is not the case with this cleansing mud. I have to admit, I was probably equal parts wary and curious. But after using it regularly in the morning and at night for two weeks, I saw a noticable difference. Fewer flare-ups. Smooth skin. Balanced naturally occurring facial oils. I paired this with the Essential Correction Complex and the Sea Mineral Mist (but any of their toners are readily embraced by my skin).

    I also went a week without these products and my face was not happy, so it looks like this is what I’ll be using on my skin from here on out.

    P.S. Also! A little goes a long way. I have had the travel size, use it 1-2x a day on the daily, and have had it for 2+ months now. So the 5 oz size would definitely last a hearty amount of time. Invest in your face. Invest in companies with a solid integrity who give back to the environment and treat their sources with care. Everyone wins.

  • Game changer

    Kay September 25, 2019

    After trying so many products to clear my skin I’m so glad I found this cleanser ! It has literally been a game changer and has cleared up my skin so much! This product was recommended to me when I went to go get my facial. This product is amazing and works well with my skin. After using this cleanser I apply blemish balm after . I have seen such a major difference in my skin since using this product !

  • Amazing Product!

    Nina K. September 21, 2019

    I love this cleanser! If you have acne prone and/ or oily skin, this is a great cleanser! It makes my face feel super clean and has improved my acne drastically without stripping or drying my skin! It gently cleanses and gives a really nice tingly feeling (from the peppermint, wild mint, and tea tree) and continues to feel like this after you rinse it off, that’s how you can tell it’s really working! But this stimulating sensation isn’t overwhelming (and I have sensitive skin)! I definitely recommend this to anyone with oily and/ or blemish prone skin! Only bad thing is it smells kind of fishy but I’m able to look past it!

  • Hands down... the best products I have ever used!!

    Alicia S. September 11, 2019

    I absolutely love my OSEA products. Ocean Cleansing Mudd is my everyday cleanser. I typically use it morning and night. I keep the Ocean Cleanser in my shower, because I love that as well.

  • Finally!!

    Jjoll September 02, 2019

    I purchased the travel blemish prone kit and the Undaria body oil. I finally found a brand I feel good about using and checks off everything I want in my skincare regimen. The ocean mud cleanser is amazing, the minty tingly feeling is so refreshing and relaxing, I use a PMD Pro face cleanser wand with the ocean mud and then massage the lotion in with the warming plate side, WOW!!!!!! The lotion and spot treatment smell devine as well. I finish off my cleansing ritual with the Undaria oil on my arms and décolletage, smells heavenly.

  • Great

    Ellie August 25, 2019

    I really enjoy this product. The minty feeling is a bit to get use to at first, but then it’s really refreshing and I look forward to using it! I had a problem for a long time with bumps under my skin and all over my face and now they are almost completely gone. My one complaint is that some of the product gets stuck in the pump and you need to clean the dried up bit out of the spout, if you don’t it sprays everywhere and I lose a good amount of product because of this. But overall, it’s a really wonderful face wash that has helped with my break outs a lot!

  • Can't Give Enough Praise

    Cory August 04, 2019

    I can not give this product enough stars! I have had oily skin that randomly breaks out for all of my life. Especially being in college, the stress makes me break out even more, but with this product I have seen almost zero breakouts. This leaves my skin tingling with the cool sensation that feels amazing and refreshing. This 5 oz bottle last me almost 5 months and that is using it twice a day. You only need to use one pump when washing your face and that is enough to cover. I tried to switch cleansers to a different brand because I was concerned about the price of Osea, but having a face that doesn’t break out is worth every penny. Every product I have tried doesn’t even begin to compare to this. I especially love how they are a cruelty free organization and vegan. Highly recommend to everyone!!!!!

  • Awesome cleanser

    Alissa July 19, 2019

    Ocean cleansing mudd is an amazing face wash. Gets skin ultra clean with a tingly invigorating sensation as a bonus! Removes makeup Wella d does not aggravate my Candice skin. Highly recommended and will rebuy!

  • Still not sure

    Beth June 29, 2019

    If I could love this cleanser based off the smell alone I would. I would bathe in this it smells so good. Like chocolate mint.
    I love the slightly tingle clean feeling it gives you. And it absolutely makes you feel clean but not dry and by no means skin stripped.

    The only thing that keeps me from giving this cleanser 5 stars is as soon as you rub it over your face, its like its not there. It doesn’t lather, which isn’t a big thing to me. I rather prefer that. But it almost goes across your skin clear. So although I can kinda feel it in my hands, between a wet face and not being able to actually see the product, I feel like I’m missing places on my face because I can’t see what I’m actually doing.

    Maybe I’m using it wrong some how? But based off that alone, because I feel like I’m not able to truly see how much I’m cleansing my face, I will not be repurchasing this. No matter how incredible it smells.

  • Acne soap

    Lyndaoliveros June 12, 2019

    Love the way it smell and the way I feel my skin clean

  • Best Acne Cleanser

    Tanya T. May 26, 2019

    I have dry, sensitive, blemish and acne prone skin. This product nearly cleared up my breakout in 1 week. A few seconds after applying, my face felt like cool crisp morning air on dewy skin. The tingly sensation would last even after washed off. It felt amazing! The rest of my body is extremely sensitive as well, and normally cannot use face cleansers in the shower so it doesn’t run down and irritate the rest of my body but I could use this product in the shower daily without a problem. I bought the travel kit for blemish prone skin and after a week using twice a day my face started to get too dry so I now only use it at night, then I use the travel kit for dry sensitive skin in the morning and it has been the perfect combination.

  • Sken ckearing

    Vanessa May 12, 2019

    I tend to get the occasional breakout and this speeds up the clearing without drying or peeling. The cool tingling was a bit of a surprise even though I read reviews on it. I recently started using the ocean cleanser as a pre cleanse then the cleansing Mudd and I could see an instant difference. This will be in my usual rotation.

  • AH..Mudd?

    Rosetta March 21, 2020

    So refreshing and rejuvenating..feels like all the yuckies from the day washing down the drain…Love it!

  • All time favorite!

    Sherlyn S. March 21, 2020

    I buy it again, again and again… It’s my all time favorite cleanser. My husband is enjoying it now too because it cleanses his oily skin too!

  • Deep clean, refreshing!

    Paloma February 10, 2020

    My skin is normally oily and prone to congestion. I’ve been using the Ocean Cleansing Mudd in combination with the Blemish Balm and have seen a great improvement in my skin. The small bumps and redness on my face have reduced; it leaves my skin feeling so clean. Plus, the smell is so refreshing!

  • Hands down the best cleanser on the market

    Lauren January 30, 2020

    I’ve been using this for over 20 years and even though I’m 44, my pores are small and my skin is flawless. I alternative using this with the Ocean Cleansing Milk, as my skin has a tendency to be dry, especially in winter. This cleanser is so invigorating, such an amazing sensory experience, and it deep cleans and shrinks my pores, giving my skin a luminous appearance that is prime for my serums and tinted moisturizers. The high concentration of essential oils can burn a bit, especially if you use acids, but it never causes my rosacea-prone skin to flare or become red, so it’s just a sensation, not true irritation.
    I’ve tried other deep cleansers and they just strip your skin of oils. Mudd is truly the best!

  • The best product I’ve ever used

    Maria January 16, 2020

    When I first started using this product, I had bad acne all over my face. I thought I tried everything and exhausted all my options because nothing ever worked for me. I tried the cleansing mudd and it changed my face completely! I love this product so much. My face cleared up and now I have no more pimples. My face had blood cysts on it and this product is the only thing that took that away. Truly amazed!

  • Purifying and clearing!

    Kendall F. December 29, 2019

    Before I bought this, I thought this cleanser was a physical exfoliator that was a mud with natural bits, but it is just a paste, which I am happy about since I can use it daily. I absolutely love this cleanser and have seen many improvements pretty quickly. The minty scent and feeling is strong and slightly uncomfortable while you’re washing your face, but when you dry it off it feels amazing. I struggle with acne (nothing too major but still pretty bad) and this cleanser has cleared my acne and helped prevent new pimples and blackheads. I would definitely recommend for any one with oily, blemish-prone skin. I would not suggest to use it around the eyes as the minty-ness can be irritating. You also get a lot of product in a sustainable package and ingredients from nature that work 🙂 10/10 LOVE IT!

  • Ahhmazing!

    Nj December 28, 2019

    I’ve had acne ranging from your run of the mill breakouts to painful cystic acne. This cleanser is gentle, but mighty. After I cleanse, it truly feels like my skin is breathing. I love this product and the results— my skin hasn’t looked or felt this good, well, ever. It’s worth every penny!

  • The best clean I've found!

    Katrina November 21, 2019


    The Ocean Cleansing Mudd is seriously one of my favorite things in my life. I’ve been using it every 2-3 days for nearly 2 years.
    It leaves my face feeling so clean, refreshed and cool. It really helps keep breakouts to minimum especially in combination with the blemish prone essentials.

  • Invigorating!

    Cat October 30, 2019

    I got a little sample of the cleansing mud when I ordered the OSEA oil. All I have to say is wow! I don’t have oily or acne prone skin, but this product worked really well on my normal skin. I not only ordered a bottle for myself, but I also ordered one for a friend of mine. We both agreed that it felt as though we were at a spa! My skin feels so wonderful after using. I absolutely love this product and would give it 10 Stars!

  • Too Minty

    K R. October 23, 2019

    The peppermint scent was way too strong, I put it nowhere near my eyes and felt like the minty fumes were making them water. The cooling effect on my face after was just too much, almost like I had rubbed mint toothpaste all over my face. Just too heavily scented for my preference, went back to the Ocean cleanser which it much milder!

  • OK but...

    Boz May 25, 2020

    The mudd has a very intense (mint?) smell, for me it is too intense. I cleanses quite OK and the pores are a bit smaller, however I would expect more for this price.

  • Once I tried this, I've never used anything else

    Brittany M. May 21, 2020

    I’ve always struggled with acne, mostly in college and grad school…but still had a few breakouts. I have tried a ton of products, but none that I absolutely loved. The Ocean Cleanser has been my staple (along with OSEA moisturizer) for about 3 years now. I will never use anything else! I love the smell, feel, and results. My “breakout” now is nothing like it was before. I may get 1 or 2 spots here and there, but this cleanser is sooo preventative! From someone who has tried it all, I am extremely pleased with this product. I highly suggest trying it out too!

  • Great for oily/sensitive skin

    Jamilla May 11, 2020

    Honestly, one of the best cleansers I’ve ever tried. After using several products, I’ve learned that my body likes aloe and tea tree (which I use in my hair and as washes as well). This has helped to calm my skin from redness due to allergies, irritants, and itchiness. It definitely helps to manage my severe oily skin. The first time I used it burned a little but if you’re familiar with tea tree or peppermint then you know it’s mint-like, cooling properties. It feels kind of like noxema. It’s really refreshing and you can smell the fishy ness from the seaweed a bit but it’s not bad. I just purchased my second bottle.

  • Peppermint bliss

    Mrs. May 11, 2020

    I have only used this 3 times in the mornings to adjust to the new products and I have less redness, less clogged pores and breakouts. The tingling sensation is no joke, if you need a wake up call use this! I am ever so grateful for how quickly this has helped my blemishes. Thank you Osea Family !

  • Refreshing treat

    Ione April 28, 2020

    I love to add a pump of this into my Ocean Cleansing milk about 3 times per week to give me a little energizing boost in my cleansing routine. When I tell my friends they should try Osea, I tell them to start by trying this one! I might even get it for gifts for family in the future. What a treat.


    Mackenzie April 27, 2020

    Okay. I cannot tell you how much I loveeeeeeee this product. I have sensitive red skin and this has never irritated my skin. It is especially wonderful when I wake up feeling sick or have allergies the peppermint really feels amazing and allows you to breathe. It works, its gentle, it smells good, I’m in love.

  • Holy Grail

    Tanya April 21, 2020

    Oh wow! This stuff is fabulous! I only write reviews if it was beyond all expectations, and this stuff is!!!!

  • WHOA!

    Jess April 08, 2020

    I got this cleanser as a sample and I loved it so much I’m buying the full product! Legit the most invigorating cleanser I’ve ever used! I got about 3 uses out of the sample and it helped clear up my blemishes, I can’t wait to see the full effects!

  • Best Face Washes on the Market

    Nancy April 05, 2020

    Finding the right basic, everyday face wash may not be as simple as you think. I wanted a facewash that is both oil-free or noncomedogenic (i.e., not pore-clogging) as well as hydrating it was hard to find the one. Then I came across the brand Osea tbh the packaging is what that got me to interact with the brand the glass bottles the minimalistic colors. I saw this line in the Bluemercury store, I tried the sample for 3 days and fell in love with the Mudd its been over a year now.
    Every time I use this facewash it gives me such rejuvenating feeling to my skin. I love it, I combine this with my Blemish Balm and it works great.

    This is a quality face wash with all the essences that I need for my face, helping my skin breathe.

  • Addicted

    Billie April 03, 2020

    This product makes your face feel clean and cool. I am obsessed with it. Usually not selfish with my stuff, but no one gets to use this but me!!! 😉

  • Love this face wash!

    Tessa March 22, 2020

    I started using this face wash about a year ago and I’m never switching to another one again! I love the feeling after I wash my face!

  • Acne clearing!

    Catherine September 15, 2020

    I love this product. I’ve been buying it for over a year now! It truly makes my skin feel so clean. I get really bad acne when I eat any gluten, dairy, or sugar but this cleanser helps with inflammation and helps quicken the healing time of my pimples.
    They recently switched the pump which makes it way easier to use.


    Anna September 06, 2020

    I will use this cleanser until I die. My skin is overall pretty normal, but I use this every night, and it is so refreshing. After I use it my skin feels soft and has a nice glow. I love the smell and the tingling feeling. This cleanser is not drying, so I sometimes use it twice a day; it’s especially nice after exercise, or in the morning if I’m extra tired. It’s a real pick-me-up!! It also works well as a face mask if you leave it on for a few minutes (sort of similar to their red algae mask). I highly recommend, and it works extra well with OSEA’s vitamin sea serum.

  • Amazing Cleanser

    Lauren August 24, 2020

    I looovvvee this cleanser! This helps my breakouts and blotches so much. I use this product then the ocean cleanser and my face feels amazing afterwards. I love how it penetrates the skin and it smells phenomenal!

  • does wonders

    Amelia August 11, 2020

    I use this along with their blemish balm and I’m not joking my skin does a 180 when I use OSEA products. I first tried this in June (the travel sample) and stopped using because I was lazy and didn’t order it but I just got my new stock in and my skin just looks renewed. I spoke to my mom via FaceTime in the morning and then again after I used this and she was like “your skin looks really great.” it’s instant gratification and results. 10/10. Blemish balm is amazing too. Not too oily. Both products a little goes a long way too. Also, with this product specifically yes, there is a slight smell but it smells like tea tree and the ocean. I don’t mind it.

  • Love!!

    Haley August 06, 2020

    I have always struggled with my skin. I’ve done it all: I have used every brand you could think of in hopes that I would find something to clear up my acne. I’ve been through just about every dermatologist-approved cleansers and even went through Accutane. I saw this brand on Pinterest one day and decided to check it out. I’ve always wanted to include a more natural skincare brand into my daily routine but have always struggled to find one that actually works. I bought the travel size to try it out and after just two days I’ve already noticed a big difference. I can’t wait to try more of their products!

  • Love this!

    Wendy W. July 30, 2020

    I bought this to use in the summer and to help with hormonal acne breakouts. I love this product! It has a very tingling cooling effect when you use it. Very refreshing especially when it’s hot out. I noticed it has not dried my skin out which is perfect for me since I am 52 and don’t want an excessively drying product. I do have the other OSEA cleansers and add/ rotate from time to time. Sometimes I will use this only around my chin where I have issues and one of the others for the rest of my face. I have noticed a dramatic difference using this versus the others as far as clarifying. I love ALL of my OSEA products!

  • Osea healed my troubled skin!

    Hayley P. July 15, 2020

    This is THE BEST cleanser out there. Taking the leap on a little more expensive skincare products went such a long way for my adult acne-prone skin. This cleanser not only has helped my skin, but it awakens your mind because it smells so fantastic! If you wear makeup, you will still have to use a cotton pad + toner afterward to get any excess off. However, after 6 months of the Mudd Cleanser, Blemish Balm, Essential Oil Corrective, and Brightening Serum, I rarely wear foundation anymore. I barely break out even with my period. Now I’m able to just wear a little bronzer for glow when I go out. I can tell these products are made with so much love. I’m so thankful for everyone at Osea!!!


    Amber B. June 19, 2020

    This cleanser is INTENSE. The tea tree (I believe) gives a cooling sensation, so much so that I expected my skin to be bright red and irritated. But it wasn’t! It also doesn’t “sud”, none of the cleansers I’ve used does. But it definitely cleanses thoroughly I have very very sensitive skin, it’s prone to dryness and redness as well. It’s taken me about 2 weeks to get accustomed to the tingling/cool sensation. Be prepared for this because I wasn’t! My skin is clear and my pores are much less visible. I’ve only been using it for a month and I can absolutely tell a difference in my skin! I’ll be purchasing it again! Oh! Also, keep away from the eye area! Just trust me lol

  • A-MA-ZING!!

    Michelle June 08, 2020

    I ordered this product off boxycharm popup trying to stock up on a whole bunch of face care products for oily skin. I ordered this cleanser, and I recently started using it and let me tell you THIS IS AMAZING. I just am in love. I love the light texture it’s not thick or foamy. It is a sweet thin layer with a huge punch. The scent is very strong and the peppermint it is INTENSE, I tear up a little if it’s to close to my eye. But in the end it is all worth it for a soft, clean, glowing, and refreshed face! I will not have a problem replacing it once I finish my bottle, but I do regret not buying more off boxycharm for like half the price ); I recommend for the ones who love feeling an intense cleanse and don’t have sensitive skin.

  • Best Face Wash!

    Cassidy E. July 22, 2021

    I absolutely love this face wash, it is so refreshing and smells amazing. This face wash has been the best working face wash to clear my acne and leave my skin feeling amazing. I use this face wash everyday and pair it with the blemish balm. I have found this to be the best combination for me, I use them both all the time and will never go back to anything else! If you are on the fence about trying it, I would absolutely buy it!

  • A true spa treat!

    Kim June 09, 2021

    This has taken my shower to a whole new level. I lather it on as soon as I get in the shower and inhale the peppermint as I shower. My skin glows with this product. Highly recommend 10/10. It was recommend to me by 2 friends.

  • My Favorite Cleanser - OSEA fan for life!

    Cristina C. June 03, 2021

    I cannot rave enough about this cleanser. I had been using another “anti-aging” skincare brand, which irritated my skin and caused me to have large, cystic acne on my chin and face. I was looking for something that would help my skin heal but thought I needed something explicitly “anti-aging”, so I was skeptical. All it took was one use of this cleanser and I knew I was onto something AMAZING. It was tingly, revitalizing, and felt as though my skin had never truly been cleansed by that other product. After using it faithfully for a few weeks, I cannot believe my skin. It is flawless. I use the sea mineral toner mist and the atmosphere protection moisturizer. My fine lines and wrinkles are gone. I have zero acne. I cannot stop touching my face because it is just so soft! I don’t need makeup. I’ve started incorporating the hyaluronic acid serum as well, and I simply glow. The cleanser IS strong -if you’ve never used tea tree oil or peppermint before, you may find it strong. But it works, and it just keeps getting better. Love, love, love this product and the entire line!

  • The Most Refreshing and Invigorating Treat!

    Ceil R. May 30, 2021

    This cleanser proves itself out to be phenomenal. I am 59 years young and have very sensitive combination skin. I use this once or twice a week as my final cleanse (post-pre-cleanse). I pair a wee dollop of this with a wee dollop of
    the cleansing lotion and this creates a truly perfect and luxurious cleansing experience. Post-cleansing my facial skin feels exceedingly soft, smooth and tingly-energized (sans irritation – no small feat for this hyper-sensitive gal!). Every couple of weeks I have a facial cleansing ritual I enact which involves this cleanser pairing post the Vitamin C polishing powder skin “buffing” cleanse. The fantastic results are practically beyond words! The best of all facial skincare worlds might be the most apt descriptive of this skin care ritual. Recently I performed this ritual on my husband’s facial skin – just as I do on my own facial skin – and he was quite impressed and loved how his skin felt afterward. I also followed this cleansing ritual up – on him – with the same Osea hyaluronic acid serum and moisture products I use on myself post cleansing. He was/is bowled over. Two words: The best. Thanks Osea!

  • Love it

    Mary May 01, 2021

    Ok so first, if you don’t like fragranced cleansers, heads up that this one smells pretty strongly of Rosemary/peppermint. The first time I used it my eyes even watered a bit and I wasn’t sure if I could keep using it but I got used to it and now I love it, it makes my skin feel so clean and tingly fresh. I’ve been using for about 6 months now and there’s definitely improvements in texture and brightness of my skin. I really love this cleanser I think it’s worth the money!

  • Satisfied

    Moni April 02, 2021

    I must say that I am glad I found my way back to this cleanser!!! A while ago I purchased the travel size kit with this cleanser included and I’m not going to lie, the other products didn’t work too well for my skin. I am Not saying it won’t work well for others, but for my mine it didn’t. BUT this ocean mud cleanser is the truth hunny. I purchased the bigger size this time and let me tell you, I know my money will be well worth every single bit if it.
    I love it!! I am African American and this cleanser shrinks pores, leave my skin so soft and refreshed. I love that cooling minty feeling I feel that is what really helps your skin seriously so ladies stop complaining about it. Lol but yes this product is now my lifetime product💕thank you OSEA

  • Works wonders for blemish prone skin

    Tara K. March 09, 2021

    Love this product, smells great too! It has made such a difference in my skin!

  • Morning ritual

    Abby C. January 04, 2021

    I love using this in the A.M. with cold water to wake me up and get all of my night creams off. It’s so refreshing. You only need a little. As soon as I finish the small bottle I’m going full size.

  • Amazing, just dilute!

    Brianna D. December 15, 2020

    I have pretty sensitive skin and eyes and I found that this product is very strong. It can make my skin red and eyes burn. I love the cooling factor that it has and how clean my skin feels after, but it is just a little too much for me. I found that in the mornings, I can mix the ocean cleaner and the mudd cleanser to make the most perfect combination. You really get the best of both worlds. The deep clean and awakening aspects of this one with the calmness and hydration with the other. Highly recommend mixing the two cleaners if you have oily/acne prone skin that is also really sensitive.

  • Refreshing Product

    Alyssa O. November 01, 2020

    When I first got the cleanser, I was expecting a soft neutral earthy sent hence the name of the product – “mud cleanser”. It smells minty, but not overpowering. I was really excited to try it because I have oily skin and needed a cleanser to control and maintain that, as well as prevent future breakouts. The first time I used it, it caused a burning sensation on my skin and around my eyes due to the peppermint. However to be fair it was only because I used SO MUCH. I suggest using a small amount for your face being that peppermint oil can be very strong. I’ve been using it for a month now, (found the right amount to put on my face haha) and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed during the morning and night. The best way I can describe how it leaves my skin feeling is like mint gum with ice cold water. It definitely has minimized oil production and breakouts. Of course I still have breakouts, but they are much more minimal. I pair this product with the Osea Blemish Balm and they work perfectly together! I strongly recommend this product!

  • Ah-Mazing

    Rachel October 22, 2020

    I’ve been working on switching my life to clean, natural, and plastic free products. I’ll be 35 in a few weeks but my skin never got the memo that puberty is over. Though my acne randomly became much much less 5 year ago, it’s been out of control this year with breakouts in areas I usually never get them.

    So I tried the Red Algea mask last month and it really helped my acne, not completely back to normal, but better. I received a sample of the Hyaluronic Sea Seum and OMG, my normally super oily skin was so soft. And my skin cleared up even more, so I decided to try the Ocean Cleansing Mudd. It’s definitely a splurge and I doubt I will keep buying it because of the price, but it’s amazing! My skin is soo soft and smooth and feels ike it’s really cleaning out my pores.

    If you can comfortably afford this, I highly recommend it. It’s great in the morning because the peppermint is super awakening. I maybe wouldn’t use it right before bed.

    Will definitely be ordinary a full size of tge Hyaluronic Sea Serum, it’s also crazy expensive but I’ve noticed with the sample that it only takes a very small amount.

  • AMAZING - cleared my hormonal cystic acne

    Pippa September 17, 2020

    I’ve suffered from on again off again hormonal cystic acne for as long as I can remember. I am SO thrilled and excited by both the mid cleanser and blemish balm – my skin has been flawless ever since using the 2. I don’t tend to rant about products but this has made me so happy. It also smells amazing. 1000% worth every penny.

  • Stinky!

    Melissa S. August 06, 2018

    Luckily I sampled this before buying. It has a minty scent, but smells terrible when you actually use it on your face. It also made my face sting for about a minute after use. I am hoping one of the other Osea cleansers will work for me.

  • Kathryn M. August 03, 2018

    Renew through this face wash. It invigorates my skin. I can see and feel the difference in my skin after two weeks of everyday use.

  • Sheena S. August 03, 2018

    I have used this cleaner for a solid 9 months now (I have never used any cleanser that long). The more and more I use it, the better and better my skin gets. I am still so in love with this cleanser.

  • Abigail G. July 30, 2018

    Cannot live without this cleanser. I’ve never seen such a difference in my face in so little amount of time!

  • Lauren C. July 26, 2018

    I’ve only used it a handful of times but it does seem to really clean my skin. The only thing I’m not totally sure about yet is that the peppermint smell and feel is REALLY strong. It burns my eyes a little and the same thing happened to my boyfriend. But I’m hoping my skin can adapt bc i really want to continue using and am hopeful this will help my skin!

  • Michelle M. July 26, 2018

    I feel very clean and refreshed with this cleanser. I sometimes have some problematic skin issues living in Colorado and this cleanser is helping normalize my skin. Tried first in travel size, but it’s a must now.

  • Jennifer M. July 05, 2018

    I love this face wash! It makes my skin feel cool and refreshed, and I’ve noticed fewer breakouts since I started using it.

  • Mariya July 04, 2018

    Love the texture and the smell. My skin feels super clean and soft, and it’s definitely less oily since I started using this product. Highly recommend for acne prone oily skin!

  • That Clean Feeling

    Ashley B. October 26, 2018

    I’m a repeat buyer of OSEA products. I love them! My skin feels clean after using the Ocean Cleansing Mudd. It takes off my makeup at the end of the day with ease. It smells great and I know I’m not putting harmful products on my skin.

  • loved it

    Valentina M. October 24, 2018

    my skin feels amazing after cleansing!!!

  • Cleansing mud

    Christine B. October 18, 2018

    Hi — I love the look and smell but it stung my eyes – the peppermint was too strong, and it seemed a little too watery when I put it on.

  • Can’t Live Without

    Jo C. October 16, 2018

    My skin feels so fresh every time I use. I have been pairing this wash with my Foreo morning and evening and have noticeably softer and smoother skin.

  • Amazing!

    Angelica G. October 12, 2018

    I ordered the travel size to test this product out and instantly loved it! The moment I started applying this cleanser to my face, I felt an instant freshness/coldness that felt like my pores were wide open and cleansed. It doesn’t lather up (which I love) and gently but effectively cleanses my face. I looked up the first like four or five ingredients and was pleasantly surprised with how natural and non-toxic their main ingredients were.

    Highly highly highly recommend! OSEA is a bit expensive but worth it in my opinion. I just ordered the full size of this mud cleanser, the blemish balm moisturizer, and the brightening serum. Can’t wait to try them out!

  • Refreshing

    Jp October 12, 2018

    I love using this cleanser. It is very refreshing and makes my skin tingle. I enjoy using it in the morning as it helps me to feel energized. Be careful not to get it too close to your eyes or lips as that can cause discomfort (I think it is from the tea tree oil, but could be due to the peppermint.)

  • This stuff is amazing!!!

    Chris C. September 07, 2018

    Wow can’t believe I’m using this stuff but it’s amaizng! Really exfoliates my skin and I feel great! I’ll be buying again that’s for sure

  • Refreshing face wash

    Ilham T. September 05, 2018

    This is my go to face wash in the morning! It wakes me up and cleans my face without over drying.

  • Stings my eyes :(

    Megan Q. August 25, 2018

    I really want to like this because I have acne prone skin and the ingredients seem like it would be perfect. Unfortunately, it irritates my eyes. I don’t put the product anywhere near my eyes, but it still causes my eyes to sting if it’s used anywhere on my face. I wish I had gone for the more gentle cleanser.

  • So refreshing!

    Lindsay M. August 19, 2018

    Love the Ocean Cleansing Mudd! Feels so fresh and clean when I use it and totally wakes me up or cleans off the day whenever I use it. Would definitely recommend. I also use it in combination with the Blemish Balm face lotion.

  • Great cleanser!!

    Brooke H. August 18, 2018

    Love this cleanser!! I’ve been using the same product for about 10 years. It wasn’t cruelty free and I tried to switch to a new product multiple times. Every time, I would experience breakouts and skin irritation. this has by far been the easiest transition. I’m so happy I found OSEA!! I can’t wait to try other products.

  • For me it’s a necessity

    Grace B. August 14, 2018

    This is the only wash strong enough to keep my super extreme combination skin oil slicks at bay without making my skin so dry it starts to flake. I also love this company. They have been extremely generous over the years and I believe in their products.

  • My favorite

    Cayley T. August 10, 2018

    Love this face wash! The best! Super refreshing, I love the tingling sensation.

  • Keeps acne away

    Leah S. December 28, 2018

    I love using this after I’ve oil cleansed my make-up off at the end of the day. I will sometimes mix it with the Vit C polish for extra brightening and exfoliation. Its a great combo and still gentle and non-irritating.

  • Great Cleanser!

    Melissa M. December 22, 2018

    I love this cleanser! It makes my skin feel so clean when I finish washing it. I truly feel like I’ve cleansed my skin of all the dirt and pollution and whatever else got on it throughout the day.


    Elizabeth B. December 21, 2018

    Had a tough time finding a good cleanser in the hot, summer weather. This cleanser cleared up my oily skin, I also have very sensitive skin. My twenty-something daughter also loves it!

  • Awesome!

    Angelica G. December 19, 2018

    I love the tingly feeling I get from this cleanser! I truly feel like my pores are being deeply cleansed, especially will toxic free ingredients (which I absolutely love).

    I’m very picky with my skin care nowadays because my skin is very sensitive and will react negatively to so many of the ugly products companies put out. Since I have very large pores, I make sure I buy a cleanser that really penetrates deep into them & the Ocean Cleansing Mudd doesn’t disappoint!

  • In LOVE

    Ashlyn H. December 18, 2018

    I truly love this cleanser. I have struggled with huge pores and blackheads ever since I can remember, and in the last couple of years, they have taken over my chin as well. I have always dealt with minor breakouts, but my pores and blackheads have been my main concern. I will preface with the fact that I have started getting monthly peels, which has probably also contributed to my skin improving. However, two weeks before I started getting regular peels, I started using this stuff, and I could tell within 2 days that it was what my skin needed. My skin was softer, and my pores, although they were still there, looked much smaller, and I had to look closer in the mirror to see the blackheads on my nose. I had been using cleansers and scrubs with salicylic acid for YEARS and my skin never truly improved until I used this and stopped using such harsh chemicals daily. I also use the Ocean Cleansing Milk and the Atmospheric Protection Cream (but didn’t start using these two until a month or so after the Cleansing Mudd).

  • Perfect for breakouts

    Wendy F. December 12, 2018

    The best cleanser if I’m feeling a breakout coming on.

  • My favorite

    Amber H. December 12, 2018

    Ive been using this facewash for over 6 months now, and I have less black heads and blemishes. I love how fresh my face feels after washing too!

  • Love Mudd

    Nicole C. December 06, 2018

    I have combination skin that is prone to breakout. I have used this mudd two to three times a week for three years and it has kept my face totally clear since I started. I’m a customer for life and have actually purchased this bottle for a friend as a gift (who I gave the travel size bottle to and loved it).


    Maura M. November 20, 2018

    I absolutely fell in love with this product from first use! I have combo skin that occasionally breakouts and this product has changed my skin. It is super refreshing, I felt it working right away. My skin looks fresh and clean after every use.

  • This changed my life

    Tiffani B. November 16, 2018

    I started using Ósea cleansing milk and mud cleanser almost 2 years ago. i have very sensitive, fair, yet combination skin. specifically the mid cleanser has changed my life. it totally works with my skin, keeps it balanced, clean, and fresh. it’s not an acne miracle but i have to say that it doesn’t cause acne whatsoever. that’s what i mean by balanced, along with exercise and water this is the perfect solution for skin care. i use a different toner and serum but i use it every other day. this cleanser i use very morning and night. sometimes if i use it in the middle of the day my skin gets a little bit dryer but that’s my fault for washing so much but k love in florida and things get hot and sweaty here! thank you Osea i love your brand and how much you care for skin care!!

  • Most amazing product ever!

    Rachel L. November 14, 2018

    My skin has never looked better! I will never buy anything else for my face but OSEA!

  • Tingling - cool- and healing

    Gina E. November 13, 2018

    I started with the ocean cleanser- but quickly changed to ocean cleansing mud. This is a wonderful product. I rinse my face before applying the cleanser. Note: this cleanser seems to work best with a minimal amount of H2O. The tingling happens immediately- so nice that I like to keep it on until the end of my shower 🚿. The healing process is evident. And … I have aging skin (56) blemish prone but sensitive . I do not find this product drying at all, yet it is very healing. Once a day seems plenty for me. I follow with the sea mineral spray. Which… continues the healing and cooling of the skin. My pores seem closed and my skin feels fresh and ready for the next step of my regimen

  • A Must Have!

    Anna S. December 30, 2018

    My boyfriend and I both use the cleanser daily. We look how fresh and clean our skin feels afterwards.

  • Finally something that works!

    Lisa July 23, 2021

    I am not one to write reviews on products but I have been so impressed with this face cleanser and I’ve only been using it a week. I have oily skin with cystic acne. I have used so many products before. What I love about this cleanser is that is so refreshing (tingly/cooling feeling) and it is not drying. My face and blemishes are instantly less red after cleansing. Also, there has been no purge effect like so many acne products. Breakouts are clearing up quicker and do not progress forward as much as before. I’m also using the blemish serum and moisturizer. Started out with the travel size to try out and a week in I’m already ordering the full size. My husband who is not acne prone also loves this wash because it is so refreshing. Best part is no toxins!

  • Love the Tingle!

    Krista April 12, 2021

    I have been using this day and night for 2 weeks and I can already tell my complexion is less congested. I love the tingle and minty cool feeling, so refreshing! the wash does not foam or bubble, but I use my rotating facial brush and I love the effects.

  • Fantastic for acne-prone skin

    Andrea March 06, 2021

    I love this product, it helped me make major, persistent strides toward clear skin after years and years of wrestling with hormonal adult acne. I use it as the starting point of my nighttime routine, followed with Ursa Major’s toner, pai’s rosehip regenerative oil, and when I have blemishes a benzoyl peroxide + green tea oil treatment. I’ve also started doing facial gua sha every day, which might be helping. While it might not be right for everyone, and you should absolutely be careful around the eyes if you use it, I highly recommend it as part of an overall healthy facial care routine for those struggling with acne.

  • love this mud

    Alexandra January 11, 2021

    i have sensitive/blemish prone skin so for me this is great for every day use. i would recommend cleaning or exfoliating face with a wash cloth first for best results. i use circular motions and let it sit for a minute or two. it does tingle and have a minty smell- most likely from the tea tree oil- but i enjoy it.

  • Good TIngle, But Doesn't Clean My Face

    Chase July 19, 2020

    Maybe it’s because I’m a man with a beard, but this stuff doesn’t work that well. It’s too thin & watery and doesn’t seem to clean my face, BUT the mint tingle is really nice. Only other gripe is that I have to use 4 pumps to cover my face which feels like a lot to waste everytime I shower.

  • Ocean Mudd is Crud

    Karli D. April 06, 2020

    I tried the smaller version of this product initially because it had such great reviews and I like the idea of ocean mud on my face as a cleansing agent. However, I was extremely disappointed in the product as a whole. To be honest, it stripped away all the natural oils on my skin and made me super dry (and I am typically oily in the T-zone). It smells like feces on your face, but I did enjoy the super strong tingly feeling I experienced every time I washed my face with it (and I like the convenient packaging of the product). I feel like I may use this more in the summertime when my skin tends to be a little bit more greasy, otherwise I would not purchase this product again.

  • Unsure

    Brittany February 24, 2020

    I love the smell of this product and how it makes my face feel refreshed and clean after I use it. I have been using it for a week now and I am having an abnormally bad breakout around my mouth/chin (where I usually tend to breakout) and I can’t tell if my skin is purging or if the product is irritating my skin. I want to keep using it but im afraid it will make my skin worse over time 🙁

    • From Follain:

      Hi Brittany,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to write this review. I’d recommend only using this product a couple of times a week as it is more of a treatment rather than a daily cleanser. See if using it a bit less helps to calm your skin. If you have any further questions, please feel free to send us a note at help@follain.com and we’d be more than happy to assist you!

  • Love

    Claire December 19, 2019

    Zingy in the best way – wakes me up in the morning! This cleanser has drastically decreased my acne and evened out my skin (I’ve been using it for over a year).

  • game changing

    Halle December 18, 2019

    This cleanser helped clear my skin if cystic acne. I give it 100% from the texture, to the smell to its longevity – I use day and night and has lasted me half a year.

  • Effective but strong

    Angela C. December 16, 2019

    This face wash has actually really helped the appearance of my skin. it really has a strong scent and tingling though. It’s a little intense, but I will keep using since it’s done a great job on helping my acne and reducing redness.

  • best face wash ever

    Amy F. December 15, 2019

    This is the best face wash. I use to get acne, usually due to stress. My husband did as well. We’ve been using this stuff for the last few years because it got rid of our acne and kept it off. I’ve never had a product that worked this well before. I’ve convinced many friends to switch to Osea as well.

  • refreshing

    Connie S. September 26, 2019

    This tingles and cleans my face. Helps my breakouts and cleans them out. Feels good on my face. Really like this cleanser.

  • Burned my eyes and face

    Bea N. July 13, 2019

    It is too strong. If you have sensitivity to peppermint oil, do not get this. I was rinsing my face for 5 minutes.

  • Smells like fish!

    Travis A. February 05, 2019

    I wanted to like this, I really did. But, it smells like fish and made me want to gag. I just can’t handle the smell so it’s a waste of money. If you can get over the smell, I hope it works for you.

  • Tingly

    Jen D. January 02, 2019

    This tingles so good but feel it leaves a residue. Rinse extra well!

  • Intense and Refreshing

    Zach S. December 25, 2018

    This cleanser is incredible! I have combination/oily skin, generally pretty sensitive, but this product didn’t bother me at all. It made my face feel very clean, less oily than usual, and the tingly feeling of the mint and rosemary lasted for over an hour. It’s a much thinner consistency than I thought it would be – much easier to apply. I’m very satisfied with my purchase!

  • Once A Week Deep Cleanse

    Caitlin V. December 05, 2018

    I have sensitive skin so I usually wash my face with the Ocean Cleansing Milk in the morning and occasionally the Ocean Cleanser if I have a lot of makeup to wash off at night. I was worried that this cleansing mudd would be too strong for my skin, but so far I haven’t had a bad reaction. I only plan on using this once or twice a week for a good deep cleanse because the cleansing milk is very light and this is much stronger. The peppermint smell is very powerful and refreshing on my face. If you like that sort of tingling experience then I suggest you give this one a try.

  • Tingly clean!

    Melissa S. November 30, 2018

    I love all thing minty and tingly (especially lip balm). I never thought I’d feel that tingly sensation all over my face, but you def do with this cleanser. It was jarring at first, but it’s great for waking you up in the morning! My skin loves this stuff and it makes me look forward to washing my face!

  • Moody skin

    Jeanne S. November 22, 2018

    I have aging hormonal skin. I have found this to be a great cleanser without stripping my skin. I have congestion in the chin area and this is helping clear up my stubborn pores with out drying my skin out. It’s has a pleasant tingling as it does it’s magic.

  • Love this cleanser!

    Maria November 11, 2018

    The mud texture seems like it won’t sud up at all but you rub it around in your hands (you can see the green of the seaweed!) it starts to foam a little. the peppermint actually stung a little at first use but after that it felt so tingly and refreshing! I’m prone to being oily by noon and this has really helped. I also use with the blemish balm and I love it- definitely needed if you’re oily and it smells delish

  • Obsessed! But it took a bit

    Allison October 30, 2018

    I love love love this product! I am 23 and have been suffering with acne for 10 years. I have tried almost everything, with hopes it will clear up my face. I got it in the sample kit with a spot treatment and mask. The first time putting it on, I described it as what it would feel like chewing minty gum. An intense minty freshness. After washing it off and my face caught a slight breeze, it felt like drinking water while chewing minty gum, like a little blast to the face. But in a good way. I’m glad I didn’t let that peppermint note deter me, because I now love this product! I don’t have super oily skin, so I only use this at night. But I started to see a difference in a couple days. I plan on getting the Osea Ocean Cleanser to add to my morning routine.

  • Rebuying / adult acne cure ???

    Jennifer C. October 22, 2018

    At first I thought I was going to have to throw this product out after the first use. The peppermint BURNED my sensitive skin. But after a couple uses I got used to sensation and I’m so glad I toughed it out. I’ve only used this product a couple weeks daily and I’m already seeing improvements in my skin. I’ve been dying to find something for my adult acne and this may be my holy grail.

  • It cleared my skin!

    Ahana W. October 19, 2018

    I bought this product with 2 other samples for $15. It does wonders! It cleared my skin and feels so refreshing to use. I definitely recommend it.


    Kayla October 06, 2018

    This mudd cleanser came in a package of two other sample sized products I bought for $15. I am IN LOVE! I love how refreshing it is and that the tea tree oil works to kill bacteria. Within 2-3 days of using it, along with the blue tansy mask and the spot treatment, I noticed a significant difference in my skin. My boyfriend even noticed saying that my skin looked “refreshed.” And with one of my concerns being dull skin I am happy with the results so far and excited to have found these effective and CLEAN products that are actually working for me. 😀 I am now obsessed with Follain and am so excited to try more products. I just added the OSEA Blemish Balm to my routine and so far so good!

  • Not my favorite

    Lesley P. September 24, 2018

    A little too much for my skin. But for very oily /acne type skin probably great.

    • From Follain:

      Hi there- yes, this cleanser works for everyday use for oily skin types! If you don’t have oily skin, this can be used once or twice a week as a treatment.

  • Tingly and clean

    Brittany D. September 16, 2018

    This cleanser makes my face feel incredibly clean and also tingly from the peppermint extract. A little goes a long way!

  • Effective and very refreshing

    Tessa M. September 16, 2018

    This is a burst of minty, tingly facial exfoliation. I use it one or twice a week, and it feels and works well to exfoliate and brighten my skin.

  • wish i loved :(

    Carolyn H. September 12, 2018

    I recently ordered this in the mini size along with a few other skincare products to help with acne/combination skin. I LOVE everything else I ordered but for some reason this product burns my skin. I don’t know if maybe mine just has too much peppermint oil ???? I’ve tried using it 3 times now and each time it cools my face and then starts burning to a point where I just have to rinse it off, and can’t even cleanse my entire face…..

  • The perfect pick-me-up

    Rachael B. July 25, 2018

    After using Osea’s famed Ocean Cleanser (love), I was eager to try out this cleanser because of the unique color and ingredients. It’s amazingly refreshing, so it’s perfect for sluggish mornings. The peppermint smells amazing and really feels like it’s working hard on your skin. Would recommend to anyone!

  • Good for the men in your life

  • Cooling

    Jenna M. June 01, 2018

    I love this cleanser for days I want a light cooling sensation with a deeper cleanse. Works great and a perfect mini size to try it out before buying the full size one.

  • Hard working cleanser

    Jessica F. May 07, 2018

    As someone who spends a lot of time getting sweaty at the gym or yoga studio, I need a cleanser that works. I love this product so much that I even bought the travel size for my gym bag!

  • Great cleanser

    Mandy D. April 03, 2018

    I’ve seen a dramatic improvement in my skin since starting this cleanser in combination with the Hannes Dottir mineral mist. It does burn a bit, but my skin adjusted after the first use.

  • Favorite cleanser

    Reganne D. March 27, 2018

    This is my favorite cleanser. My acne prone skin really loves this combined with the blemish balm moisturizer

  • Great Cleanser

    Natalie K. March 15, 2018

    I love this cleanser – controls my combination skin without overly drying. The smell is a little offsetting at first, but I have gotten used to it.

  • Amazing

    Ariana M. March 14, 2018

    I’ve been using this cleanser in the morning for the past couple of weeks.

    My pores have shrunk and it awakes my skin once I use it. I’ll keep it on for a minute or two while I make my coffee and it’s definitely a staple in my routine now.

  • Great for oily skin

    Abby A. March 14, 2018

    Since my skin is on the oily side this has been a great product for me. I think using it in the shower is probably the best way to get results. The peppermint smells great and if you leave on a minute you can feel your skin tingle. Definitely recommend.

  • Refreshing

    Dani S. March 05, 2018

    I didn’t expect the minty, refreshing smell! I’m excited to keep using this in my routine. I struggle with acne so I’m hoping this products helps!

  • Lovely tingly cleanser

    Courtney M. February 14, 2018

    I love how this cleanser feels – it tingles just enough that you know it’s working. It has a bit of an interesting smell but feels really refreshing when you use it. I’ve purchased the travel size two other times because I don’t use it often but find that the consistency is a little thin so I feel like I have to use more than I normally would with other cleansers. Also, the travel size packaging needs work – there’s a decent amount of product left in the bottle but it’s nearly impossible to get it out because of the design of the pump.

  • Great For Acne

    Malin B. February 14, 2018

    I usually switch over to this in the summertime or if I’m having a particularly breakout-prone spell. The tingling sensation makes my face feel super clean, but sometimes is drying. During winter months I reach for something more hydrating. I have combo/sensitive skin, so I bet it would still be a good choice for those with more oily complexions.

  • Great for acne prone skin

    Roberta R. January 22, 2018

    I use this every morning in the winter and twice a day in the summer. it is so refreshing. The tingle makes your face feel clean & fresh.

  • Refreshing and invigorating without conventional dryness

    Christina C. January 01, 2018

    Feels great and tingly, only desire would be to have a little more grit to the product to feel like it’s really exfoliating.

  • Feels lovely and clean

    Doria W. November 20, 2017

    This cleanser makes my skin feel very clean and fresh after using it. The peppermint oil gives a tingling sensation when washing which I love. My face is very finicky with products and it didn’t clear my acne (which could have been from other products I was using), but I definitely noticed a lessening of breakouts when I started using the cleanser. Really solid product. It didn’t miraculously clear my skin like I was hoping (nothing ever does because apparently I’m a mutant) but it feels lovely on your skin and always leaves me feeling very fresh and clean.

  • i've never thought a cleanser would make that big of a difference but it did.

    Larisa B. October 31, 2017

    this cleanser has transformed my face. love it.

  • Watch it around the eyes, but great otherwise!

    I keep this Cleansing Mudd in the shower and use it to wash my face while in there (seemed like the cleanest and easiest way to use this cleanser). I like this because of the texture (smooth with super small exfoliating grains) and scent (tea tree oil). It also seems to do a great job at keeping my combination skin under control (oily spots are managed, drier spots aren’t too dry). Just be careful using this around your eyes: the tea tree oil can irritate a bit!

  • Test before you buy.

    Tried this as I love the normal osea cleanser, but it just didn’t work out for my skin. It caused weird dry patches and my skin to flake.

    • From Follain:

      This cleanser is best for oily and combination skin. I would definitely stick with the Ocean Cleanser or Cleansing Milk for more moisture!

  • Tingly

    Megan S. September 29, 2017

    I have very sensitive skin and I haven’t had an issue with this cleanser. The peppermint makes it very tingly on my face, which sometimes feels great, but other time kind of hurts. I do feel like my face is getting cleansed, and I love the color and consistency, but overall, it hasn’t been life changing for my skin quality or acne. I probably wouldn’t purchase again. Its not bad, its just, meh.

  • Clean and refreshing

    Cristina C. September 28, 2017

    This cleanser has made taking my makeup off and washing my face at night routine something I look forward to. It’s so refreshing, and gives a slight tingle feeling. I have acne-prone, super oily and dry skin. I use this twice a day, and every now and then if my skin is feeling extra dry this will be a bit too harsh for me, but for the most part I’ve been loving the way it makes my skin feel.

  • So refreshing!

    Sara N. September 28, 2017

    I love this cleanser. It feels SO refreshing and smells so good. I use it almost daily on both my face and body. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I don’t think I could use it to take off eye makeup, which I consider to be a 5 star requirement.

  • Good stuff

    Catherine S. September 28, 2017

    I started out with the 1oz bottle of this to test it out, and so far I’m a fan. Great for mornings when you don’t have makeup on. Love the tingling sensation then, too. I do feel as if I need to use more to really feel its affects, but all in all, really nice product.

  • Great to alternate with stronger cleansers

    Christine L. September 28, 2017

    I am prone to breakouts and typically use strong medicated face washes. However, I have started alternating with this face wash and love it! It leaves your skin feeling fresh! I typically use it in the morning when I do not have to take makeup off.

  • Great Cleanser, Especially for Price Point

    Ace September 20, 2017

    I love this cleanser and the tingly feeling it has on my skin when I apply it. It really feels like it is working. I let it sit on my skin while I brush and floss so it can really soak into my pores. My skin feels very clean without feeling dry or tight.

  • Tingling Mud Goodness

    Gigi September 04, 2017

    This stuff does smell like the ocean, a bit fishy…but as someone who does not enjoy the smell of fish, I liked it. It has a tingling sensation from the peppermint and tea tree oil, which were helpful in minimizing my breakouts. Although it works better as a mask instead of an everyday cleanser.

  • Feels amazing on my face!

    Judy August 29, 2017

    I have the most oily skin ever and this cleanser does a great job of cleaning the gunk off my face at the end of the night. I love the way it tingles at first because I feel like that’s how I know it’s working. With my oily skin, I tend to be more acne-prone. When my face is breaking out, I’ll use the cleanser and my breakouts won’t be as visible the next day.

  • Great!

    Alex August 18, 2017

    Great product, my skin feels very good after using and not too dry. The tea tree/peppermint oil are a little too strong for my liking, but the product works very well.

  • Works!

    Allison July 28, 2017

    I loved the tingle of the peppermint oil, and I really do think it helped my skin. Just be aware that It has a bit of an earthy smell (I guess because it’s mud!).

  • New favorite!

    Whitney December 09, 2015

    Having oily skin and large pores, I’m always looking for cleansers that focus on these problems areas. This cleansing mud is amazing! I could feel it tingling immediately and my skin definitely felt cleaner afterwards. Blackhead extractions were much easier to do after using this cleanser. Highly recommend it!

  • Perfect Alternative

    Laura D. November 02, 2015

    I used to use the Shamanuti Charcoal cleanser but I have since switched to this mud cleanser and it is the most perfect alternative. This is great for more oily / acne prone skin. It had a little bit of peppermint oil in there so it is nice and minty fresh feeling!
