I've been using this product for about a week now. It's actually not bad. The scent is a bit strong, and smells more like shampoo than a face wash, but it's not unpleasant. It definitely gets every stitch of makeup off of my face, and I have not had any breakouts since I started using it (either from the cleanser or in general). The only drawback is that it is a bit drying for my skin, especially around my eyes. I noticed that I really need a moisturizer afterwards (daytime I always follow up with a moisturizer, but at nighttime I usually go without, not so with this product). Overall, it's a good face wash. I like it because there isn't any salicylic acid in it. It's been difficult to find anything without at least 2% salicylic acid!
Great Product! I have oily, acne prone skin & wanted to banish the use of salicylic acid. Shockingly this product has worked great, I use it twice per day & follow with an oil free moisturizer. The only set backs with this product for me is the fragrance is a tad bit strong for a face wash & also it can be a little drying if not followed by a moisturizer. For now this is my fav, I have used this for a while now & just purchased my third bottle. As always with any good skin regime, trial and error is necessary to find what works for you. My suggestion is to purchase it at Ulta, that way if you don't like it you can return it. Good Luck! continued >>
I like this cleanser so far. I've been using it for about two weeks now, and I must say I absolutely LOVE the scent. If you don't like overly scented products, stay away from this cleanser, but I don't mind them at all and I think it smells delicious. I have extremely sensitive combination skin that breaks out in tiny bumps from almost everything I put on it, but haven't had an issue with this cleanser. It gets all my makeup off in one go and leaves my face feeling clean and soft. I appreciate that this product doesn't contain any acne-fighting ingredients in it, as I try to keep my skin away from them so I don't develop a tolerance to it. That said, I haven't had a single blemish since I started using this cleanser, and I would probably buy it again, but it isn't my HG. I also bought the Nighttime Moisture Infusion from the same line, and am excited to try that as well!
This cleanser is perhaps the most gentle cleanser I have ever used. It is similar to Cetaphil, but this has a better fragrance and is non-drying unlike the Cetaphil(Normal/oily skin) that I have previously used. It keeps its promise on purifying the pores. However, it does not perform specially on anything else. My skin feels clean afterwards. I am uncertain on it removing makeup, it seems way too gentle for that. It does not break me out and my skin is sensitive to all types of cleansers and reacts right away. I did not have any unpleasant reactions with this cleanser. I would recommend this as an everyday cleanser.
I'll start out with the good: I love the smell, the way it lathers up, the softness of my skin after using it, and the super-cute packaging! Unfortunately, I believe this is the culprit of some breakouts I have been experiencing as of late. I'm actually really surprised at the breakouts, because Aveeno has natural products! I think I was sucked in by the pretty bottle and the fact that other Aveeno products have worked for me. It sucks cause it was about $7, and for only 6 fluid oz I think it's a bit pricey! I've been using it for about a week and a half, so there's still SO much left in the bottle. I don't want to waste it, but I can't use it. D: Maybe I'll have my little sister try it, because she doesn't have very acne-prone skin (SO jealous!). I guess I'll go back to using Purpose for now and continue looking for my HG cleanser...
I wouldn't buy this again. The scent is very strong and unpleasant. I like that the package is super cute, and it takes off all makeup, but it smells too bad for me to buy it again.
I like that it is sulfate free, as I am sensitive to it. I use this at night only (when I'm washing off makeup), and use a creamier one in the mornings. Overall I am very pleased with it! I wish the scent was lighter but I am pretty used to it now.
I love Aveeno, it's one of the few brands that always works for me! (mainly because of my sensitive skin). So when I tried this I had high expectations, which were met! It smells amazing,cleans my skin with 2 pumps, plus is cheap and easy to purchase!
OMG LOVE this! HG!!!!! Finally a face wash for my terribly irritated skin that has made the redness go away and keep breakouts away as well.
I use this twice a day with the 360 L'oreal scrubbie (scrubbie is great for gtting rid of forehead bumps and clearing out pores on side of nose). It says to use 2-3 pumps, but with the scrubbie I only need 1. Then 3-4 pumps for getting rid of make-up. This stuff really isn't that great at removing make-up though, so I stick to other products for that.
My one big complaint (why a 4 and not 5) is the fragrance. It is VERY strong, some kind of floral scent. The very first time I washed my face I felt sick because it was like washing with perfume. Also, the price is kind of a lot but that's typical Aveeno.
I hope this stuff stays around and I'm going to stock up when there is a sale. I'm just super excited to have my red face finally back to its normal shade after trying sooooo many other brands these past 2 years. I wonder what the "magical" ingredient in this accomplished it.
Me and my sister HATE this product! It made us breakout so bad after a few times of using it. NEVER gonna buy it again.
