I'm reviewing their skin cleanser for oily/combo skin. It's a blue gel wash with a little bits of exfoliating beads. Love the scent of it and love applying it on my face and washing it off! It's definitely refreshing. As much as I like it for cleansing purposes, it's kinda ineffective for preventing or treaing acne. In it's defense however, I don't think it's meant to fight acne. I bought this maybe 2 years ago and prefer less-scented and more natural face cleansers, but this was nice to use and I will use it here and there. It didn't strip my skin at all- haven't used it as a makeup remover so I can't say anything about that, but overall it's a nice cleanser.
First of all, I have been looking for a good facial cleanser for a while. I have normal skin that's a little dry. And I need something that will clean without being harsh or leaving a film on my skin. You do not need a makeup remover with this cleanser. I did use an eye makeup remover, though.
This cleanser makes my skin feel very clean, but not dry or stripped, just clean. I also suffer with contact dermatitis and cannot use heavy scented products. This product has no noticable scent and does not leave an oil slick on my skin or strip my skin dry. Since I have been using this cleanser my skin has a very smooth appearance and feel. My make up stays on all day without needing any touch-ups or looking oily.
I only wish it came in a pump instead of a tube. It called a foaming cleanser, but it does not foam. I like a cleanser that foams, but this one works and I like the results, so I can live without the foam. ( I use the normal skin cleanser, toner and gel moisturizer).
Very good cleanser. Takes off all my makeup, rinses clean.. however, I am not too fond of the scent.. but I'll learn to live with it.
$8 for a little over 3 oz.. it's not really a bargain, but it sure cost less than my other cleansers.
I love this cleanser. It does not dry my combo skin out and removes all my face make-up and even most of my eye make-up, except for the waterproof stuff. I am already on my second tube and I like this a lot better than either cetaphil n/o, or sage facial shampoo.
