DO NOT BUY THIS TO REMOVE MAKEUP! if you want to use this twice daily you've got be somone who either uses a different product for makeup removal or someone who does not wear makeup at all. That said, I wear makeup everyday so i use a different cleanser at night. in the morning i use this. it definitely does not lather at all, but it does moisturize. idk what happened to my skin but for a while it was very very dry and itchy so i bought this in hopes it would bring some relief to my newly-sensitve skin and it has! *cheers* like other reviewers have said, give it about a month and you'll feel the difference in your skin-mine has become more soft, moisturized and radiant and you feel better b/c the list of ingredients in this cleanser is a very short one so you're not putting any harsh chemicals on your skin. i would compare this cleanser to cetaphil, but better!
ordered this based on MUA reviews, wanted something simple and effective...this did not remove any makeup oil or residue, it definately did not give me the clean feeling, very dissapointed...maybe im just a lather type of gal...this def does not lather up
I was so excited to try this, because of the rave reviews. I ran out to Superstore and bought a 500ml bottle for $11.50--cheap! When I got home, I slathered this on my face and struggled to get all my makeup off. After I rinsed my face, it turned all itchy and red. I will not be buying this again.
My dermatologist recommended this product because I have very sensitive skin that becomes irritated and dry. I have used it upon his suggestion for about 6 years now and my face is looking and feeling great! It not only works as a facial cleanser but also a makeup remover. Since it is so gentle, I also use it to wash my makeup brushes. For better bang for the buck buy this product at Coscto cause you can get the big economy size bottle for only $15 and it lasts a long time!!!
Ever since I was a teen, I have searched and searched for that one "miracle" product that would actually make my skin look and feel beautiful. Well, I can now say that I think I may be that much closer.
I purchased Spectro Jel for Sensitive and Problem Prone Skin because it said that it was ph balanced, contained no soap, and most of all, because it claimed to "wash away surface skin bacteria and dead skin cells". Well, I can say that since using this product (it's been about 4 months, I use it only at night, and I still have half a bottle left!) my skin has improved immensly. My once bumpy, irritated cheeks and chin are now smooth, and do not feel tight after washing. Also the redness has pretty much disappeared. Finally!!
I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who has sensitive, combo/dry skin like myself.
Price: about $8 Cdn from my local Shoppers Drug Mart
I would definitly buy this product again!
***as a side note...the temperature here recently took a nose dive to minus 50 celsius (no that was not a typo) and I still use this product...although I have noticed that my skin tends to be a little more dry now, it still remains very soft. I am now in search for the "perfect" moisturizer.
I usually use the Spectro Jel cleanser for Oily/Combination skin, however now that I am pregnant my skin has become red and dry/flaky. I switched to this cleanser and even after 1 day of use, my skin looks almost transformed. The redness is gone and the flakes are almost completely cleared up. My skin feels clean and soft. I will definitely continue to use this cleanser throughout the rest of my pregnancy and when/if my skin returns to its normal state I will go back to using the cleanser for oily/combination skin.
I've used this product for two weeks and I like it so far. I use it every morning and night and it doesn't dry my skin at all, unlike other drugstore cleansers. My skin feels slightly moisturized after using it. I have combination, acne-prone skin. I still get pimples, but not as much as I used to before. My cheeks feel incredibly soft too. I think this does a decent job when it comes to cleansing my skin. It doesn't take off all my makeup, but I use baby wipes for that. At SDM, I bought it on sale for a 500ml bottle, which was crazy. I will definitely repurchase this product again.
This is a great light cleanser for most skin types (definitely not for oily skin). It is a gel cleanser so I believe it absorbs dirt well when massaged unto the face. I use this very frequently in conjunction with other cleansers, and will buy over and over again. Definitely a staple.
I've used this product for a number of years. I have very allergic and fussy skin, so I love using this because it's non-irritating. I find it especially effective for me in the summer - where it leaves my skin very soft, smooth, and in no need of moisturizer after. My skin feels very, very clean when I use it.
However, I took off one lippie because in winter, it dries out my cheeks a bit (so I use some Eucerin afterwards). I've now switched to generic Cetaphil (Shoppers Drug Mart version) because I feel it's better for my skin in winter, followed by Neutrogena Alcohol-Free toner.
I have been using this product for more than 5 years. My face is VERY sensitive as I use prescription acne creams. Even Cetaphil was a bit strong for me. My dermatologist recommended this to me and I am so glad that this product came into my life. It is so gentle. It won't remove your eye makeup so you will have to use eye makeup remover prior to cleansing. It does remove my foundation though. Obviously it doesn't have the appeasing lather and the scent. But those are not important as long as the product works! I think most people need to realize that a cleanser will NOT clear up your skin alone. If you have something more than mild acne (i.e. 2 or 3 pimples here and there), you will most definitely need to use something stronger (i.e. prescription creams or oral medication) than just a cleanser you buy at the drugstore or department store. All in all, Spectro Jel has helped keep my face clean and moisturized. I just wish they had travel sizes so I can take it with me everywhere I go =)
