I wasn't too impressed with this face wash. It is a very basic cleanser for sensitive skin; it doesn't cause any breakouts or dry out your face and there's no initial purging but I also felt like it didn't thoroughly cleanse my skin either since I had to use makeup remover before using this so that I wasn't left with any eyeliner or mascara on my eyes. On certain days I tend to wash my face 3x or more (once in the morning, once before I workout so I don't sweat with all my makeup on, and once at night) and on these days I'll use the aloe cleanser for my mid day face wash since it isn't very harsh and I don't want to dry out my skin. I did like the foaming dispenser since it takes the effort out of lathering the face wash with your hands and the slight scent it has isn't bad either. However, I will definitely not repurchase this since I feel as though there are much better basic face washes at a cheaper price.
About as effective as washing with glycerin soap, but with what I can only call a sort of “green” equivalent of new car smell attached. Tried using daily for 3 weeks and was able to keep it up for 2 days per week. Very bumpy cheeks, chin and forehead coming up 2 – 5 hours following each wash and staying for about half a day afterwards with no benefit.
This Aloe Vera Facial Wash face is a pleasure to use. It cleanses my skin really smoothly. My skin looks radiant and feels as smooth as silk. Even in winter I don’t feel any stretch or dryness on my skin. It’s smooth to touch and refreshes my skin like no other face wash. I recommend the Aloe Vera facial wash very strongly.
I gave this a shot as it is recommended by Paula Begoun and I was looking for a basic cleanser that wasn't too pricey. Probably the best thing is the pump. It works very well and pumps out every last bit. It cleanses okay; I don't use waterproof foundation or eye makeup, so don't have problems with removing that, but sometimes it struggles with mascara, leaving some residue under my lower lashes. I use 3-4 pumps, which is probably a bit more than needed, but since it's a relatively thin foam, I feel I need that much to really cover my skin. So, it gets used up rather quickly. Didn't cause any breakouts for my combo skin, but I do find it a bit drying, particularly around my eyes, so maybe I can only use this in the summer. Overall, it's okay, not something I'll run out and replace. I said I'd repurchase only because it's hard for me to get my preferred cleansers where I live, so it's always easy to pop over to The Body Shop and pick this up if I'm in a pinch.
Bought it in the Aloe Mini Sample pack for $25 CDN, My skin is overall too sensitive for clinique so I tried this on advice of a friend. The facewash did seem to make my skin smoother after the first try but didn't feel as clean like other reviewers said. But I still use the toner and creams and my face is still smooth and not red!
I was looking for a gentle and water soluble cleanser and this did quite a good job in comparison to what high end brands such as Lancome and Dior had to offer.
Ive been using this now for almost 3 months and I quite like it as it is super gentle and wouldnt strip off my skin. It is a tiny little bit drying but this is normal for foam cleanser I think. I agree with other users here that it doesnt do miracle for your skin, however it is good at removing debris and definitely gentle enough to use twice every day.
I would rather recommend this to people with normal - combination skin though and for 8 GBP i think its decent for a basic cleanser.
This product is definitely great! it really soothes my irritated skin, and calms down the redness. the only downside to this product is that it smells really really bad. like mixed chemicals. im really having doubts that it smells like aloe vera :/ but then either than the smell, this product is working great for me, so yeah! :)
I've been using this for almost a year now. I don't really know why, it doesn't do wonders for my skin or anything, it's just that it always makes my skin feel clean. It doesn't remove all makeup, but I just use the toner afterwards to remove all excess dirt. Also it's created for sensitive skin, and it doesn't make my face itchy or red. I also love the packaging, it's really hygenic and simple to use.
I use this when my face is really dry- other than that it does nothing for me... not worth the $$.
My boyfriend bought me this. I have skin that hates almost everything, and everywhere is sold out of my regular Yes to Tomatoes products. How is this supposed to be for sensitive skin when it has sodium laureth sulfate in it? SLS makes my excema go PSYCHO.
