This stuff was prescribed for me after I had radiotherapy to put on my burns. I noticed that it could also be used as a cleanser so I tried it on my face. Now I am a cleanser snob, I only use Clinique or Liz Earle, occasionally Freederm when I am broke but aqueous cream rocks. If you have sensitive skin, as I do and cannot use soap without dry patches appearing try this. You can't lose because this stuff is really cheap and can be used on burns, babies butts etc so you can keep it in your meds cabinet. I have found it to be a brilliant facial cleanser. Massage a little into your face and rinse with a clean washcloth then splash with tepid water. No hype, no high price tag just great skin.
