I have to say this has really been working for me, even with my cystic acne and drying BP regimen. I am on my 4th or 5th bottle and just stocked up. It removes makeup (I wash once with my hands and once with clarisonic) and does not dry skin or break me out. After using everything from Darphin to Dove bar soap, I have found a real keeper facial cleanser in this product!
Really good stuff- I read about this cleanser here on a skincare board post and it was so cheap, I thought there was nothing to lose. I'd been looking for a less-drying cleanser to use as it gets colder and here, because my regular Clinique stuff (while great for hot, humid weather) is too drying now. This product is very mild and creamy, has a very light almond scent, and feels great on my skin. Doesn't foam up much and removes makeup really well. Has not irritated my skin in any way- no breakouts, no itchiness.
After reading reviews on here I decided to give this a go as my Christian Dior makeup remover was getting too expensive as I was having to use more and more of it to remove my mascara. I found this at Priceline when it was on special and only paid $8AUD for it. I've been using this for a couple of months now and just love it. No other makeup remover (prestige to budget) as ever removed all my eye makeup I would have to use a seperate eye make up remover after washing my face as I still had mascara on my lashes. I use this as other reviewers, with a little water and massage on my whole face for 20 seconds or so, it rinses beautifully and adds softness to your face, plus without having to tug on the skin around your eyes is a bonus! I've only used about a quarter of it and that's using it daily so it will last you a while, would be good if you could buy this in a larger bottle with a pump as it's quite thick but that's a very minor picky observation. Interestingly I haven't lost any eyelashes since I've starting using this so either the less rubbing on my eyes or the conditioning properties of this wash are helping my lashes, either way I will always use this!
This works extremely well as a face wash for my dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin! I dampen my face with water, then massage it in as a cream cleanser for about 10-20 seconds. It seems to take that long to break-down my mascara (haven't tried it with waterproof mascara). Then I get my hands wetter and wash my face again for another 10 - 20 seconds. With the extra water, it foams up and works like a foaming cleanser. Then I rinse everything off really well with water.
This does an extremely good job removing my makeup. I like the fact that I don't need a separate eye makeup remover. I've been using it for about two months and really love it. FYI--I found it in the baby section of my local discount store, not the beauty section.
PROS: Moisturizing. Removes antiperspirant well. Unscented.
CONS: None for me, really, except that mineral oil is in it, so I don't use it on my face. If you're looking for suds, you won't really find them here.
APPLICATION TIPS: This is a great dupe for Bath and Body Works' Lay it on Thick Shower Cream, except without the heavenly smell.
