(Full disclosure: I received a free product from the manufacturer in exchange for an honest review.)
In exchange for an honest review, Refresh Skin Therapy sent me a bottle of its Pre-Peel Rose Glow Cleanser, along with its Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel and Hyaluronic Pure Moisturizing Cream for post-peel reparation and restoration. I used all three products three times a week (the maximum recommended dose for the peel) for about eight weeks. After nearly two months of use, I still have about 80% of the bottle left; ditto on the fruit peel. While on the pricey side, if used as directed, both products should last for quite some time.
The first thing I noticed about the cleanser is its smell. It’s rather strong. Not unpleasant, just…very in-your-face. If you’re sensitive to smells (I’m not), this could be dealbreaker.
The cleanser is moderately thick and manages to work up a decent lather. I found that I don’t need a whole lot to cover my entire face; a dab the size of a penny will usually suffice. The cleanser often leaves my face feeling dry, but this is par for the course as far as facial cleansers are concerned; and I’m sure my combination skin doesn’t exactly help matters. I inherited sensitive skin from my mother, and the Pre-Peel Rose Glow Cleanser didn’t cause any problems – rashes, breakouts, etc.
Though I’m not about to replace my daily cleanser (Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps; I like the Almond-scented and Unscented Baby/Mild varieties) any time soon, the Pre-Peel Rose Glow Cleanser seems to have worked well in conjunction with the Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel to minimize the appearance of some of my acne scars. In particular, I have one flat and one atrophic scar, both of them less than three months old, which bothered me. The Refresh products reduced the redness of these scars, with the most dramatic results occurring in the first month.
I’ve tried other, non-vegan products (such as Mederma) back in my omni days, with lackluster results; so it’s safe to say that my expectations for Refresh were rather low. I’m happy to report that, two months later, I’m pleasantly surprised with the results. And I still have a six month+ supply of cleanser and fruit peel to work with! (After the trial period, I started using the moisturizer on a regular basis, so I’m sorry to say that it’s already half gone. But it’ll be nice while it lasts!)

As I have gotten older, my skin has become drier and it has been a challenge to find effective facial cleansers. I am happy to report that this product is very effective, yet gentle on my skin. The best way to use this product is as a preparation for a facial peel. It helps prepare restores the skin’s pH balance.
Why I like this product:
* It works. After using this, in combination with the Facial Peel and Moisturizer, my skin was noticeably brighter. * It’s effective, yet gentle. My face didn’t sting or feel dry after using this. * The natural ingredients. Some of the ingredients include: olive oil, rose hips seed oil, and Seaweed extract.
If you are looking for a product that will gently cleanse your face, you will enjoy this.
* I was provided a free sample for testing and review.

I am a sucker for fresh scents and this cleanser smells wonderful refreshing for sure- almost like a fresh and clean body wash. It is “pinkish-clear”. It cleans nicely and even though the package said that I should avoid the eye area- I tried it anyway and to my surprise it did not sting in my eyes.
I just love if I can use a cleanser on my eye make up and it is strong enough to get rid of it yet gentle enough to not feel like I stripped the natural balance of my skin. Recommend this especially in combination and for preparation for the Lactic Acid Peel

I’m usually very sensitive to new face washes – even the most “gentle” seems to make me break out, and so for years I’ve stayed loyal to a Neutrogena benzoyl peroxide face wash. But after trying (and loving) the re-fresh acid peel, I decided to try some of the other products. This cleanser is so gentle and has a light, soothing scent. And I didn’t break out! Incredible. I need a break from my medicinal face mask, and this cleanser does the trick.

This is a great cleanser! My skin feels so clean and fresh after using and it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin.

This facial cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and very soft. I have older, normal to dry skin with some past sun damaged areas. This makes my skin feel completely clean without feeling dry and tight.
Smells so pretty and just takes a few drops to thoroughly clean face and neck area. It lathers up beautifully too. Rinsed away completely with a few splashes of warm water leaving no traces of make up or lotions.
I was given a sample of this product to try for my honest opinion. That having been said I really do like this facial cleanser and since I have started using it my skin feels great!

Agreed with all of the reviews above. I returned from a steamy day running around the city on public transportation with a VERY dirty face. This had arrived in my mailbox, so of course, I rip it open and begin scrubbing. Well, I am not a big skin care person so the only comparison I can share is that it felt like my face had been waxed clean. You know that feeling when your eyebrows are waxed and the skin underneath feels so baby soft. Thats what this cleanser did for me. LOVE it.

I really like the Rose face wash. It smells great, applies easily like any liquid soap product, and lathers up well. It does a great job cleaning your face, gently. After use my face felt more alive, fresh and clean. I could actually see the difference, that was nice. I liked this product very much. I used The Rose Face Wash, Glycolic Peel, and Moisturizer together from this company. I have to say these products work well. My face feels refreshed and soft after use. I have sensitive skin and allergies so I must take extra cautions when using a product, but I had no problems with these products and no allergies. I recommend this regiment, and these products. You like what you see in the mirror. I received free samples of these products for a fair and honest review

I was given a review sample of Refresh Skin Therapy’s deep facial cleanser for use prior to applying their Fruit Acid Gel Peel, and I was truly surprised that a very small application of this cleanser is all that’s required to clean my entire face and neck and hands. My skin felt completely refreshed and as if it had been toned by the smallest possible drop of gel the first time I tried this cleanser, and I’ve been enjoying the same wonderful results every subsequent time I’ve used this wonderful product. Not only does my skin feel clean, but it feels a whole new level of clean–clean without any moisturizer having been included already in the wash. That makes this cleanser the perfect partner for the Refresh Fruit Acid Gel Peel, followed by the Refresh Pure Moisturizing Cream, which I also highly recommend.

The manufacturer sent me this product for review as the first step in a triple whammy skin care routine. It’s packaged in a no nonsense plastic bottle that in no way indicates the nature of what’s inside.
The fragrance is simply lovely. It’s rose, but in the real rose sense, not the chemical rose-like aroma that lots of inexpensive products contain. It’s not cloying or overpowering, just definitely there. It makes the product a pleasure to use for the several minutes suggested to thoroughly clean the face before proceeding to the next step in the process.
Before I talk about effectiveness, please know that I’ve used just about every product on the market for face cleaning, from Noxema, Ivory soap, Neutrogena products, Philosophy, Dr. Pericone, Estee Lauder, Lancome, and Clinique, to whatever’s on the bathroom counter wherever I happen to be, like Dawn Dish Soap (don’t ask). There’s a reason Refresh sent me this product, is what I’m saying! Some products don’t clean well at all, some strip the skin, some leave the face feeling greasy, tight, or itchy, some cause breakouts, and some just feel detergent-y (no, not the Dawn–it was actually pretty good). I think I’m qualified to speak as an expert consumer of skin products.
The Rose Glow Gel does exactly what its name suggests. It deep cleans without itching or stripping. It smells heavenly, and left my skin soft without grease, clean without tightness, and ready to accept the next step in the treatment (which is awesome). Whether you use this cleanser as a standalone–and you wouldn’t need to use it every day, it’s that thorough–or as part of the Refresh three part treatment routine, it’s a winner!

You know what I’m talking about…that soft, fresh, glowing face that is hiding under a few years of dry, dull, congested skin. Be it from weather, age, clogged pores (or in my case, ALL of the above!), this is your first step to putting your best face forward. Some of my favorite ingredients are used in this nourishing formulation, like rose hip oil and seaweed extract. It’s a gel that foams a bit with water, thanks to olive oil derived castile. Nothing irritating or artificial here. Not one ‘safety flagged’ ingredient, and no hidden ingredients. Other products that list ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum’ can hide a lot of unsafe chemicals under those names, at least those sold in the USA. Chemicals banned or regulated in the skin care products in other countries can hide under ‘fragrance’ here. After rinsing with cool water, apply your toner and moisturizer. Or, this can be the first step for an exfoliating treatment.
I have skin that can react badly to certain products. I had no redness or irritation with this.
Please note that this product is not tested on animals, and is made in the United States.

Instead of using alcohol or something super drying, this is a great cleanser to remove all traces of oil and makeup for a good peel to skin contact.
This product works exceptionally well. I sometimes use it just to be sure that my skin is totally clean, even when not about to apply a peel.

Refresh Skin Thearpy Reveal Pre-Peel Rose Glow Cleanser is the perfect cleanser to use before you use a Fruit Acid peel. It restores the skins natural PH. This cleanser contains olive oil castile, glycerin, rose hop seed oil, kumquat extract and seaweed extract. I think this cleanser can be used for any skin type but I have oily skin and I notice this deep cleanses my skin. I break out less while using it. You can use this in the shower but I like using it with a washcloth at night before I go to bed. Then I follow it with an application of the Hyaluronic Moisturizing cream.

I received this product free for review. This review is my honest opinion.
Angela Streiff (verified owner) – March 29, 2014
Most of my face cleansers will make my face feel clean, but this one is different. This cleanser leaves my face feeling so clean it could squeak if I rubbed it. Recently my skin has been less that cooperative. My skin has been oily. Yuck. My usual exfoliants and cleansers haven’t helped. So I started using the Fruit Acid Gel Peel made by the same company as this cleanser, combined with the Hyaluronic Pure Moisturizing Cream . I’ve been using all the products together as a 3-step process and have really liked the results.
The cleanser doesn’t leave your face with any kind of medicines or moisturizers on it. It leaves it completely bare so that a chemical peel can work it’s best. I LOVE that about this cleanser. I would use it all the time without being part of a process of prepping for a peel. I love the cool clean feeling I get when washing my face with it. The feeling of having my face completely clean without some residue of acne medication, skin softener, wrinkle fighter, etc is great. Just clean. Love it!
Also something I really like about products made by this company is they are not tested on animals. Each product states this on the label. Animal testing for cosmetic purposes is a thing of the past and I appreciate that this company chooses not to participate in the inhumane and outdated practice. Also noted on the label is these products are made in America.

I used this cleanser as part of a three step skin treatment with REFRESH SKIN THERAPY products. I will start by saying that I absolutely love this cleanser. It goes on really smoothly and takes very little for a thin coating that deep cleans. I use a fair amount of face makeup so I get some pore build up. This cleanser in conjunction with a soft loofah did a fantastic job! This is a great product made with some natural ingredients like olive oil, rose hip, kumquat and seaweed extract. I very highly recommend.. Now on to the fruit acid gel peel by the same company.

In the past, I have tried many types of cleansers for my DRY, SANDPAPER TYPE OF FACE and nothing worked that well. That is until this product! There are many reasons why I am very pleased with it:
+ This worked to removed old skin cells, and really clean my face. To achieve this result, the very first time that I used this, I followed the instructions and did two applications of this due to my super dry and very, very scaly skin. Results: All of the scaly parts came off and my skin is SOFT and does not feel like sandpaper anymore.
+ It has a tingling effect – Noticed even in my first application that it was deep cleaning my skin.
+ Easy to apply according to directions. So I did follow directions and massage this in my face, then I used a rough washcloth that was wet and massaged this in with the washcloth. This helped to further remove the scaly skin and old skin cells.
+ Rinses off easily – Just to be sure, I rinsed TWICE to fully clean my skin.
Will it work for you? Yes, I believe it will because if this worked well for me with my SCALY and very DRY skin, it should work for anyone. Highly recommend this!

I have loved using this natural face cleanser. The smell is so pure and clean and makes my skin feel the same way. I use it with a hand held exfoliating brush and really feel like I am buffing all of the goodness into my skin. Just love this!
