My bottle looks different than the pictures, it is all blue. But I like this stuff, it is simple and no frills and does not break me out. Suds up nicely with my clarisonic. Doesn't dry me out at all, and I am prone to dryness. Love it and would buy again.
In general, I don't believe in using foaming washes on any skin type as they are simply too aggravating. Although this didn't strip as much as others I have tried, it contains a variety of sulfates which are known skin irritants. I cannot get my head around how companies can market products with these ingredients as "sensitive". Having said that, this cleanser was better than I thought, it wasn't too harsh but I will definitely be sticking to more (truly) gentle products such as Moogoo.
I'm not that impressed with this. I guess I have to stick with a cleanser that has some kind of active acne-fighting ingredient (which this doesn't) to help with cleaning pores out. I wouldn't really say this was suitable for sensitive skin either. The pump bottle is okay if you leave it upright but DO NOT through it in a travel bag without locking the pump dispenser, the product leaks out the top if you tilt it over!! Got all over EVERYTHING! Kinda my own fault...they do I think make this in a tube with a cap which would have been better but I don't think I will be repurchasing this again anyway.
Great basic cleanser, removes my face makeup easily, and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Love this.
I have been using this for several months now. I have highly reactive, sensitive skin thats mostly tight and dry due to a dry skin condition. I can use various moisturizers though cleansers are another story. Funny stuff that stays on my face all day does not effect me as much as stuff I put on for a minute then rinse off, hence my inability to find a suitable cleanser. I am sure there are better, but for the price and availability, this works well.
I can also use it to remove my mu including wp mascara (be cautious around eyes as always, will sting if it gets in them), or use it after a makeup remover. One bottle has lasted me quite a while and I will buy again because its non irritating. No bells and whistles to promise anti-aging effects, but maybe thats why its non irritating, its just that basic. Everything else in the ds, and even high end products, were problematic for me till this.
I bought the sensitive skin version of this by accident. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this little gem could easily remove all of my makeup, including WP mascara and still leave my face feeling smooth and moisturized. My hubby has even used it and commented on how nice it makes his face feel afterwards. :)
Great product for about $5.00 from the DS.
Works great at not stripping my sensitive facial skin, while still giving a clean feel. Will repurchase!
This face wash worked great for my sensitive skin. It takes off my makeup without stripping my skin. Love that I can get this at the drugstore. Most face washes are too harsh and make my skin red, including cetaphil. This is one of the few products that didn't do that. Will buy again.
I have been using this cleanser for the past 2-3 months and I think it works really great for my skin. I have combination skin, my skin is oily but I do get random dry patches especially during the winter. I think this cleanser helps balance my skin better, it doesn't feel as oily anymore and with the warm weather approaching my skin isn't getting any dry patches. I love the way it foams because it makes my skin extremely clean after I finish washing my face. And I have been breaking out less lately, the only problems I have are the redness in my cheeks, scarring and the occasional pimple or two but it isn't as bad as it used to be. I think this cleanser also helps calm my redness just a little. I am almost done with this product, while I am tempted to go try new products I think I will repurchase this again.
I know this cleanser has a cherished spot in the hearts of many, but it's just not for me. I originally bought this product after seeing rave reviews online. I've tried the pump version and the tube version (they're the exact same product, check the ingredient labels). I used it for a few weeks at first, wasn't too impressed and moved on to other products. I tried it again after trying other cleansers and concluded that I just didn't like this particular cleanser. While I felt it cleaned my face just fine, I did not like the filmy feeling left behind after cleansing and rinsing thoroughly. When one has oily skin, one wants his (or her) face to feel clean and not dirty after cleansing. It wasn't a slimy feel, just felt like something didn't rinse off all the way. I don't know what would cause the filmy feeling but I suspect it might be the polyquaternium-10, which is often used as a texture enhancer in hair conditioners. Also, I think this cleanser dried out my skin too much. Might be worth considering if your skin is on the dry side and the filmy feeling doesn't bother you.
