I have combination skin thats also sensitive. This cleanser cleans gently without irritating my skin. Leaves the dry areas moisturized. I follow with a light moisturizer (olay sensitive lotion with aloe). Another really good product from neutrogena. Edit: I started to get really oily from using this and I started to break out on my forehead and chin. A little too emoilllient to use right now.
Great simple, gentle cleanser. Doesn't irritate skin and leaves me feeling clean with out a film or too squeaky clean feeling. I do use Ponds Cold Cream to remove makeup before using this.
This product is a very gentle but effective cleanser. I have combination skin, with areas of normal, oily and dry skin. I am also prone to blemishes so I need to make sure my skin is clean but not irritated. I love this cleanser because I can use it on my whole face including my eyes. It is not advertised as a makeup removal but I find that it takes off my mascara with the same ease as eye-makeup removal. I use it by wetting my first first then massaging it on and finally rinsing it off. An easy product to use and it doesn't smell like much of anything, which is great in a cleanser. I recommend to anyone who is seeking a gentle and non-irritating cleanser.
I wasn't impressed with this cleanser. It felt very oily and left a strange residue on my skin. I don't think it cleaned my skin well enough, overall a bad product.
it's a good, basic cleanser. doesn't strip my skin. removes MU. doesn't sting or irritate.
It doesn't dry my face out and makes my face feel nice and clean. I like it. The bottle has pump on it so its easy to use.
I think i found my HG!!!! I have been using principal secret for half a year and it just made my skin dry and tight. So when i saw the reviews here about Extra Gentle Cleanser, i thought i should give it a try. I am still on my first bottle and i could already see the difference!!!! My skin is so soft and clear. It didn't make my skin break-out and the redness are gone! Amazing! Definitely would buy this again! Highly recommended especially for people who have sensitive skin like mine!Update: After using it for a long time it stop working, I started to break-out sadly. i would not buy it again.
I was looking for a less-drying alternative to my Alpha Hydrox cleanser so I tried this due to the positive reviews. I liked the fact that my skin didn't feel tight after using it but unfortunately it made me break out after prolonged use. I couldn't tell if I was breaking out because of the oils in the cleanser or because this cleanser doesn't clean my skin well enough. Anyway, after I went back to my AHA cleanser, my skin cleared up again.
This is my HG. No matter what I try, I always end up coming back to this. It even improves your skin, calming points of irritation. This cleanses well enough without stripping your skin, it won't contribute to acne either. Sometimes I have to cleanse twice if I use heavier makeup, but it still doesn't strip my skin. One bottle lasts forever, too :)
Edit: After over a year of use this cleanser just isn't cutting it anymore. I've been having some pretty bad acne for a few months now. And I've noticed it just hasn't been cleaning my face well, anymore. Back to the drawing board, how sad :(
I finally found a cleanser I will repurchase! This has been fabulous for my combo skin. It cleans well and afterwards my face feels .... well, clean! Not tight or stingy. The texture is kind of milky and it's very soft. I personally don't like foaming cleansers so this stuff works great for me. It also takes my makeup off well. My face looks very clean after using it.
