Good TIngle, But Doesn't Clean My Face
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
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.
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 🙁
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be more than happy to assist you!
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).
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
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
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.
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
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!
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.
This tingles so good but feel it leaves a residue. Rinse extra well!
Intense and Refreshing
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
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.
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!
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!
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
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 ???
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!
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.
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
A little too much for my skin. But for very oily /acne type skin probably great.
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
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
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 :(
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
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
Great product for the man in your life or yourself , works wonders on oily skin.

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
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!
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.
This is my favorite cleanser. My acne prone skin really loves this combined with the blemish balm moisturizer
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
This cleanser is best for oily and combination skin. I would definitely stick with the Ocean Cleanser or Cleansing Milk for more moisture!
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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!
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 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.
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!).
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!
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!
