This cleansing cream works very well; Simply Bee products are great...
31/03/2022, By Erica
First time user of simply bee products. This cleansing cream lives up to its description - my face feels fresh after using it! Love the glass bottle.

Good product at a very reasonable price. Thank you!

Calming effect on sensitive skin.

I love this product and have purchased it twice now. I have normal/ sensitive skin and this wash is perfect. It leaves my skin feeling soft and not dry, washes off makeup and prevents breakouts. I will keep using it and Simply Bee products!
19/10/2021, By Martine
Does a great job of removing make up and sunscreen - especially mascara. Does not leave my skin feeling tight and dry. My skin feels soft and supple after using.
17/10/2021, By Courtney
I have a very sensitive skin and this cleanser is perfect, it is not soap either which is an added benefit for sensitive skin!!
14/10/2021, By Claire
It's a lovely cleansing milk/cream. I love the smell and it does a good job of removing eye make-up. I will definitely get it again
09/09/2021, By Deidre
Divine smelling cleanser and very gentle on the skin.
09/09/2021, By Charlene
Great cleanser to remove eye make-up.
10/08/2021, By Heidi
I always use a gel.cleanser , so it took me a while to get used to this cleansing cream. It does clean well and wasues off easily. Smells nice too.

Great for sun-tired skins
23/06/2021, By Greg
Was a bit skeptical as this was my first cleansing cream, having grown used to foaming face washes, but after the first use I was sold as it left my skin feeling very soft and clean. Great packaging and a great scent too
26/05/2021, By Marnie
I had to get use to the cream formula, but as soon as i got use to it I loved it. cleans beautifully and leave my skin so soft.
06/05/2021, By Anelda
The cleanser does cause any breakouts, yet it doesn't feel like it's removing the oil around my nose and chin. The smell is a bit strong for me.
06/05/2021, By Ingrid
I bought it for my husband who has a really oily skin. From using it the first time, his face has cleared up and the smoothness lasts up to 8 hours.
04/05/2021, By Dristi
Lovely cleanser. My skin has really changed using these products.
27/04/2021, By Fella
Lovely cleanser but I just wish they could remove essential oils from the recipe. The lavender irritates my skin terribly.
22/04/2021, By Susan
Excellent product
26/03/2021, By Heather
gentle and cleansing without drying
18/03/2021, By Umm Yusuf
Rich, creamy, and gentle. Does not dry out the skin.
07/01/2021, By Niki
I have been using this product for about 5 months now. My dry skin loves it. It lasts a long time and so is an affordable buy.
06/01/2021, By Sarah
I'm on my 3rd bottle of this, and have even started giving it to family members as gifts. Sometimes I put it on my skin and leave it for 5-10mins to let it all soak in like a mask. This range has completely cleared up a longstanding skin issue of perioral dermatitis. I swear by it now.
14/12/2020, By Gabby
Honestly one of the first cleansers that leave my skin feeling soft and refreshed!
14/12/2020, By Hanlie
Awesomely moisturising with a slight oiliness (for extra moisture) on my dry skin. It also removes make-up effectively.
11/12/2020, By Martine
I love this cleanser! Cleans my skin without leaving it dry. Removes make-up effortlessly.
27/11/2020, By Jordyn
This cleanser is amazing! I use it to cleanse my face in the mornings and remove make-up as a double cleanse step in the evenings, and it does the job! I have super sensitive, acne prone skin and I find that this product is not reactive on my skin.
08/11/2020, By Lizelle
I love this product. Out of all the simply bee hand washes this os my favourite (although not really a handwash only!) as it is non drying and leaves skin leaving soft. Only downside is the plastic bottle unlike the other simply bee glass bottles Im usually used to!
28/10/2020, By Jo
smells divine and seems to do the job
11/10/2020, By Melissa
LOVE LOVE LOVE This product. Very creamy. Awesome for Joburg winters. Use a little ... at times i don't even add moisturizer feels like a 2 in 1 ... Well done simply bee
27/09/2020, By Bev
Does the job but I found the lavender a bit overpowering. Also it is runny for a cream, its more like a milk cleanser.
23/09/2020, By Rosemary
This is a light cleansing cream that is gentle on the skin.
23/09/2020, By Paige
This is the second time I purchased this product. It is a great cleansing cream especially if you have dry/combination skin. The product have a great rich and creamy texture.
20/09/2020, By Simoné
I recently bought the Simply Bee sample kit and I love all the products! The cream cleanser is amazing! It moisturizes while cleansing and it leaves my skin feeling soft. I don't think I'll ever use other face products again. I just hope this range helps with my hyperpigmentation skin.
18/09/2020, By Roseberry
gentle and long lasting
14/09/2020, By Summer
It is so gentle on the skin and feels as if you are moisturizing whilst washing your skin. Not the best at taking off eye make up but worth it.
11/09/2020, By Maggy
This product is awesome. My face has improved after using this. There are no harsh chemicals in it and my sensitive skin is loving it
07/09/2020, By Malene
This cleanser works so well and removes all my make-up too!! love it!!
06/09/2020, By Carina
Love it! Love it! Love it!
25/08/2020, By Leana
My grandma use to clean with castor oil and it just shows you, what our parents use was still the best, will definitely buy this cleanser again!!
25/08/2020, By Martina
Best cleanser I have every used!! If you have not tried it, you really need to!!!
13/08/2020, By Magret
Just bought my third bottle of this cleanser and my skin just love it!!
11/08/2020, By Haley
I do agree with the Karen below that said the product is not vegan, Simply Bee does not claim to be vegan. I know the owner of this company and they are very ethical and will never harvest anything in their brood boxes. They have utmost respect for their hives and will never harvest anything out of the colonies brood boxes.
11/08/2020, By SANDY
Best ever cleanser, leaves your skin moisturised and it is very soothing and gentle on the skin.
07/08/2020, By Karen
this product is NOT vegan

Bees are animals too. Honey and beeswax are not vegan
03/08/2020, By Given
Still to use...if the reviews are anything to go buy I'll be ok
30/07/2020, By Dre
Simply Bee, Simply Good

I bought another bottle and I will buy another when it's finished! :)
22/06/2020, By Manjula
Found that it left my skin feeling greasy. Didn't like it so much.
18/06/2020, By Celia
Love the refreshing feel on my skin and the way it absorbs and doesn't leave my sensitive, combination skin feeling oily. Has a lovely smell. Will definitely keep using it!
09/06/2020, By Sune
This toner is so refreshing and just a must have, I will definitely buy this again.
25/05/2020, By Shany
Never used a cleansing cream before, but I love this brand simply bee so this cleansing cream makes my skin feel amazing and fresh
23/05/2020, By Alex
Great for sensitive skin! I've been using it for a few months now and love it
22/05/2020, By First born
Excellent option
20/05/2020, By Robin
Received a sample of this with my previous order, and I absolutely love this! Left my skin feeling soft and moisturized. Will definitely purchase the full product of this :-)
06/05/2020, By Chantelle
Love this cleanser, skin feels wonderful, not dry. Smells divine.
05/05/2020, By Hanny
so disappointed with myself for buying this.
its way to thick and pumped with oils all it does is clog and congest the pores.
leaves behind a very grimy oily residue.
smells bad too
05/05/2020, By Joy
Wonderful. Makes skin super soft
05/05/2020, By C
Enjoying this cleanser, feels a bit watery when you first use it, but it does leave your skin feeling lovely and not tight at all.
05/05/2020, By Lisa
I bought this for my dad as he's never used a facewash before, and suffers from dry/eczema skin. It's a daily reminder to get him to use it, but when he has to says he is really impressed and loves the feeling that it leaves. I'm looking forward to buying myself one next time.
26/04/2020, By Candy
21/04/2020, By Farieda
Great ingredient list!
13/04/2020, By Jarel
gentle on skin
04/04/2020, By Kaye
Effective but not oily. Really love this!
02/04/2020, By Diana
Not like chemical stuff
01/04/2020, By Marisa
Would recommend for dryer skin types, was a bit heavy for me but I should have known to get a gel not a cream.
19/03/2020, By Deidre
Like this product, doesn't dry my skin and has definitely helped with my acne. We tried tons of products and they were all very astringent. This cleans my skin better than any of the so called ''must have expensive cleansers''. Works great with the toner
15/03/2020, By Micky.D
I love it! It works very well for me. It is extremely gentle but very effective. Will buy again and again
14/03/2020, By DD
Lovely smell. Removes make-up, but makes my skin feel oily and congested afterwards.
20/01/2020, By Samantha
This face wash is very creamy and gentle on the skin. The wash leaves your face feeling very smooth. It does not foam up but works very well! Simply Bee is a great skin care brand.
19/01/2020, By Lauren
Love this product. Leave my face feeling soft and smooth. Lovely smell too.
12/01/2020, By Mianca
This cleansing cream removes all dirt and leaves my face moisturized and soft after every wash! It doesn’t make my sensitive skin red or break out at all.
11/01/2020, By Micaela
This is my new go to face wash. I'm in love! It smells great, is gentle enough to leave the face feeling moisturised but effective enough to leave you feeling clean and refreshed all day. LOVE IT
26/12/2019, By Lara
Got this part of Simply Bee Bundle for my mom.
She loves theses products
18/12/2019, By Penelope
Lovely and soft, cleans well.
18/12/2019, By Samantha
Doesn't feel like much when you wash your face but it leaves your face feeling silky, smooth and clean for the rest of the day. It comes in a glass bottle which is always appreciated. Will buy again.
17/12/2019, By June
Love that my skin really feels moisturizers after using the cleanzer
30/10/2019, By Stacey
My skin feels great after using it. Usually my skin is dry after washing but not with this. Will most definitely buy again
14/10/2019, By Chantelle
2nd bottle purchased. I love how it removes make-up
11/10/2019, By Nicole
A lovely creamy face wash that is gentle on my skin. I chose it because its made with natural ingredients and moisturizes my dry skin.
23/09/2019, By Candice
I love the smell of this product. It feels amazing on your skin. It can feel a little oily... so if you have an already oily skin you might not like it
28/08/2019, By Renee
Cleanses well without drying out the skin. Smells lovely
06/08/2019, By Jackie
All simply bee products are great!!
16/07/2019, By Milly
Definitely recommended for dry skin, awesome.
15/07/2019, By Nokhanyo
I received this as a sample but loved it so much that I put it in my basket. It's so creamy and moisturizing and a godsend for my dry skin. I hope my opinion stays the same once I start using it full time.
23/06/2019, By Meggs
So creamy. I have pretty dry skin. This was great. So far no breakout.
28/05/2019, By Erika
I have rosacea, so usually quite scared of changing skincare products, but I'm pleasantly surprised with this cleansing cream. I agree, it's creamy and 'heavy' on my skin, but I rinse with a sponge which takes the oily feeling away and makes my skin feel soft and moisturized. This product removes my make-up easily too.
15/05/2019, By Kay
This cleansing cream is beautiful. The texture and feel on the skin is amazing but I would say it is more for dry to very dry skin. Despite loving this cleansing cream, it caused a slight breakout on my normal skin.
14/05/2019, By Vee
Didn't really lather up as more of creamy texture. But really makes the skin feel softer
07/05/2019, By Nomcebo Millicent
its such an awesome product for sensitive skin
24/04/2019, By Cindy
I switched from the cleansing gel to the cleansing cream some while ago because, it seems, as i get older my skin gets dryer. The cleansing cream is lovely and gentle and my kin not as dry. A really lovely product.
21/04/2019, By Jean
Works great for my husband, natural and mild
13/04/2019, By Janine
Second review. After using this twice I started to notice red notches and pimples. I think it was too milky or didn't clean my skin as well.
05/04/2019, By Nikki
This product is so gentle on my dry skin, no more tight tingley skin after washing. It's great.
03/03/2019, By Christie
Fine cleansing cream. After a good rinse, it leaves your skin soft, with a film of moisture.
01/02/2019, By sabeeha
I always felt that - with previous cleansers - my skin was unhappy. A few washes in and I can honestly say: Simply Bee cleansing cream is the one I'm settling with. Love everything about it!
30/01/2019, By Janine
Did not work with my sensitive skin at all.
30/01/2019, By Janine
Tried this cleanser after using a very harsh one. After the second bottle I ended up with blotchy skin and pimples. So this is definitely not for me.
17/01/2019, By Bea
SO nice! You don't have that awful tight, dry feeling as with soaps and cleansers with sulfates. The pump is convenient when you have dripping wet hands and face. I'm converted.
02/01/2019, By Happy skin
I think this cleanser can be used on any skin type out there. It soothes inflames and red skin, and I've even noticed my blackheads clearing up more with this. It won't strip the skin of its vital oils.
24/12/2018, By Aviv
Smells great, very cleansing and sooyhing for my sensitive skin
30/11/2018, By Hananja
This is my favourite cleanser by far. It leaves my skin soft and looking lovely. I won't change to a different cleanser ever again!!
16/11/2018, By Corné
I suffer from mild Rosacea (the redness in the face, itching, burning sensation, dry/scaly patches,etc) and almost every cleanse I have tried has made it worse. But THIS cleanser is a miracle in a bottle!!
My skin is cleansed without being irritated at all and it doesn't dry my skin out like other cleansers do. The smell (the lavender oil) is something to get used to, but becomes pleasant after a few uses. I recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin. Simply Bee has gained a customer for life!!
09/11/2018, By Claire
It leaves an oily film on my skin
23/10/2018, By Dedre
Cleans quite well as far as I can see, but a bit too watery which means it ends up on the floor.
17/10/2018, By Fazela
I have just purchased this cleanser and have used it a couple of times already. It has a strong fragrance which I'm not used to yet. I love how it does not dry my skin out at all, I have dry sensitive skin with rosacea.
16/10/2018, By Robyn
It’s very kind to the skin and makes it feel soft and smooth
16/10/2018, By Robyn
My husband loves this cleanser he has eczema on his face and this is very soothing, non-irritating and nourishing for his face.

I personally need to use a gel cleanser first and then I follow up with this to put the moisture back.
08/10/2018, By Romyne
This cleanser is AMAZING! I love how it lathers and the how it gives me the softest skin ever... I would highly recommend this product to anyone whose skin needs its youth back!
24/09/2018, By Ivy
This is a very creamy cleanser which leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry. I like this cleanser.
09/08/2018, By Inge
Smells lovely. I usually massage it into my face and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing off. It's like I can almost feel how it hydrates my skin as it sits. I'm a big Simply Bee fan. Will buy again.
*Note. I have a fairly normal skin and have never been sensitive / prone to reactions. So what works for me, won't necessarily work for others.
30/07/2018, By Aj
The best non-foaming natural facial cleanser I have used. Mild, non-drying and lovely natural fragrance. Removes make up well.
30/06/2018, By Getruida
Has a lovely smell. works well. what more?
28/06/2018, By Janine
I love this cleanser. At first I was skeptical as I've only ever used gel face washes, but this products changed my mind. My last gel face wash left my skin feeling and looking terrible, but this gentle cleaner left my skin feeling clean and soft.
20/06/2018, By Brigette
I normally use Clinique and found this cleanser very close to what I'm used to. The fragrance was strong in the beginning but Im used to it now. Would definatly recommend this!
13/04/2018, By Getruida
I really like simply bee's products, this one especially
11/04/2018, By Getruida
This product is really value for money, I love the way it's smells too!
11/04/2018, By Getruida

09/04/2018, By Mari
Works well as cleanser. Face felt softer from wash 1 and smell is pleasant. 1 week in so will have to see long term effects
31/01/2018, By Jenna
Dried my Skin completely and made me break out. I have such sensitive and dry skin as it is and this made it 100 times worse!
14/01/2018, By Monique
I didn't like this much, i didn't like the scent mostly. The texture was ok. Nothing special about it for me, won't get it again.
09/01/2018, By Janine
This cleanser appears to be very creamy but unfortunately all it did was dry my skin out.
19/12/2017, By Aj
Love! Perfect for the winter dry months.
15/12/2017, By Judy
Makes my skin feel soft and moisturised.
21/11/2017, By Janneke
Will see how it goes as I have sensitive skin. Up to now my skin seems to love this product
10/11/2017, By Dominique
Not sure what happened to my review below, I selected 5 stars but it changed it to 2 stars when I submitted the review.
I’m new to a cream cleanser and am really enjoying it. Having previously used a foaming exfoliating face wash I’m amazed at how my face feels cleaner even though the product is so gentle.

I love this product as a makeup remover and facial cleanser. Makes me skin feel great.
13/10/2017, By Zelda
I love this product as a makeup remover and hand wash.
12/10/2017, By Claudia
Leaves skin really soft and moisturised, very gentle but effective! One bottle goes a long way!!
24/09/2017, By RdP
Love the cream base of this cleanser. I'm hooked on natural skin care products and this is my favourite cleanser.
20/09/2017, By Jeni
I like it as it washes off nicely with water
31/08/2017, By Curious Buyer
Milky wash. Does not foam but removes make up well. Leaves skin so soft.
08/02/2017, By Kim
I have been using Cetaphil for about a decade, so this is a very nice transition - as this product is a cleansing cream just like Cetaphil. Don expect for it to lather up. I love the way it feels when it glides on to my face and that, after washing it off, my face does not feel squeeky clean or dry but rather soft and moisturised. I then apply Simply Bee daily moisturiser, which is a perfect duo for locking in the moisture all day.
11/12/2016, By Clair
I use this cleanser every day, it is so gentle on my sensitive skin. It does not foam up and I thought initially that it was not very effective, but after using it, my skin feels clean and not dry at all. I will use it for ever!
23/11/2016, By khenzi
Not worth it, it doesn foam up at all waste of money....
14/10/2016, By Noelle
Wonderful product.. Have a sensitive dry skin prone to couperose. Simply Bee Cleansing cream works wonders.
25/08/2016, By Jessica
This is such a gentle cleanser. Works very well and leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturized.
01/03/2016, By ELIZA
I really like that it doesn leave ones face feeling dry.
09/02/2016, By Verena
Unfortunately this product burns my skin and I will not use it any further
03/10/2015, By Elizabeth
A very gentle and effective cleanser. The bottle is economic and a good size, and lasts a long time. A little goes a long way. No irritation on my super super-sensitive skin. I am hooked!
28/08/2015, By Viana
Very gentle on the skin and it wipes or rinses off easily, with warm (or even cold) water.
04/07/2015, By Carol Anne
I really like this cleanser - creamy and gentle. Reasonably priced and good size bottle. Will definitely buy again.
28/04/2015, By Palm
Gentle cleansing, handy container, it feels like a treat, you can massage your face and know that you are applying only good/ all natural and non abrasive ingredients to your skin. Perfect for the winter, as it is creamy and moisturising.
15/04/2015, By Zen
Thick consistency. So a little goes a long way. Good for dry highveld weather. Skin feels clean and moisturized.
05/03/2015, By Nancy
This cleanser is very gentle yet cleans well. My skin is soft and smooth. Highly recommended!
06/11/2014, By Megan
I started using this cleanser when I was struggling with severe eczema on my face. I found it incredibly nourishing and soothing and it was one of the few products that my skin could tolerate. I still use this product now that my eczema has cleared and I apply it daily in the shower - rinsing with warm water- as I would with any other cleanser. It also has a great scent and leaves your face feeling soft and moisturized. I would definitely recommend to anyone with sensitive skin.
27/05/2014, By Jay
I use this when my skin feels a dry and irritated. It does a really good job of making my skin feel hydrated and clean. It also helps calm any red blemishes. Once applied, it has to be removed with cotton wool or a damp cloth, so I wouldn get this if I was looking for a cleanser to use in the shower.
10/03/2014, By Masadi
Cleanses well, softens the skin and easy to wipe off (not oily at all like the BN Cleansing Balm). Im not a big lavender fan but the smell is subtle.
24/02/2014, By Chanell
Lovely smell, effective cleanser and leaves skin incredibly soft
