I don't know if it's whether my expectations for this product was too high or what but I was a little disappointed with this cleanser. My skin doesn't look visibly better than it was before I started using this cleanser and I'm not sure if I can say it did anything for my blemishes as well. I do feel like my skin is clean and soft afterwards though. Ehhh ... I don't think it's a bad cleanser, it just didn't stand out for me.
I really, really liked this at first. It seemed to help heal my blemishes quicker than anything else I'd ever used and prevent breakouts as well but after about two months of using it...it all went downhill. I had been neglecting this cleanser and decided to use it again and it broke me out super bad. It's also pretty drying which is kinda typical for an acne-fighting cleanser but it was getting to the point that I couldn't use it anymore (the reason I stopped using it in the first place).
This is a very gentle yet effective face cleanser that removes all makeup and does not contain any irritating fragrances. I use this with my clarisonic and have been very happy with the results. It does a good job in removing all my makeup (I always use a cotton ball and eye makeup remover beforehand).
Amazing. I use it every night (with a washcloth to rub it in a bit), followed by Neutrogena's Fight & Fade toner, the Boots serum, and the night moisturizer. Lifesaver!! continued >>
Didn't take off make-up and broke me out like crazy. I tossed this.
Excellent, gentle cleanser. Won't dry out your skin, no fragrance or irritants. If you have heavy makeup on, you may need a washcloth to remove it all since this stuff is gentle. I like using this in the mornings, and often use a stronger cleanser (clean and clear pore cleanser with microbeads) at night to get off all my makeup.
I don't really have a problem with acne but I use this especially in the summer because it is such a great overall cleanser , very effective without SLS or fragrance, What surprised me what how well this removed stubborn makeup so well. HINT This is the best wash for makeup brushes ever ! it removes all the makeup and grime with just 1 sudsing, try it !
I agree with the poster who said this is very inoffensive...I only use it in the morning, because I don't feel it's strong enough to handle my post-work-insane-oil-makeup face at the end of the day. However, it's light, gentle, has no odor, is crazy-cheap, and doesn't strip or irritate my skin. A nice little product that basically does what it says.
I tried this along with the other anti-blemish products and found that none of it works for me.
When I washed my face with this it didn't get all the make-up and dirt off my face.
It also caused more acne for me as well. Will not buy again
Absolute HG. Cleans my face fabulously (even taking off all of my mineral makeup) on only half a pump!! No breakouts, and it cleans but doesn't strip skin of moisture. I've been using this since last fall and I'm on my third bottle of the stuff!!
I started using this around the same time I started using aspirin masks, so I can't say for sure that it cleared up my complexion all by itself, but it definitely helped and hasn't irritated my skin. Give it a shot -- it's worth it! (and only $6 at Target... if they ever drop this line I'm going to be very sad)
