I purchased this a month ago when my skin was dry and desperately flaking with red spots at certain areas. I found the reviews here quite helpful in helping me make up my mind about purchasing this. I like how it leaves the skin supple and not tight at all, although as most of the comments highlight, it probably only removed 60% of my waterproof eyemake up if its used in one wash. Its better as a make up remover and used again as a cleanser for thorough make up removal. Its a gentle cleanser that did help curing my desperately dry skin yet combo skin though I wouldn't recommend it to those with oily skin. I actually prefer this to Biotherm, Estee Lauder, H2O and Dior. My theory is that cleansers shouldn't cost the earth because you wash it off anyway, but it should function well enough for your skin to benefit and for the price, this is real value for money. It also helps to apply the 'massage on face for 30 seconds' direction to obtain the best results from this cleanser. I also applaud the packaging for its convenient pump that helps keep the cleanser bacterial-less, unlike most cleansers with their flip top/screw top lids. Will continue with this find.
This cleanser is really mild, very gentle. I am trying to get rid of the pimple problems I've been having for a long time, so I need a really gentle cleanser, nothing experimental.. And I'm not disappointed! I've been using this product for about 3 weeks, and my oily, acne-prone skin seems to really behave. I did not get anymore spots when it was my time of the month, which is really saying something about this product....! I think this product might be suitable for any skin types. Too bad the packaging isn't exactly right for traveling, and a bit pricey. But I really think it's worth it! My skin is now constantly soft and clear.
Bought this cleanser about 2 months ago. As the name suggests, it's a gentle cleanser that cleans my face off at night (not eye makeup though) and leaves my combo skin feeling moisturized, not tight and stripped. Seems similar to Cetaphil, but with more moisturizers.
This is a nice cleanser for those who don't want to strip the skin of moisture, though it won't remove makeup very efficiently. If it didn't say "cleanser" on the label you'd think it was a thin lotion! I would have liked to use it at times when I need something gentle, but it started making my eyes feel "raw" after a few days. I then started getting red irritation "specks" around my eyes. I've never had these problems with cetaphil, so I'll stick with that for now.
This is a very nice cleanser. I have an oily t-zone with normal to dry cheeks. My face never feels dry or taut after this and it cleanses my t-zone nicely as well. I would not recommend this for very oily skin.
This is a great cleanser that I always come back to. I use a harsh acne cream that makes me dry so I need a very gentle cleanser like this to not irritate my face. My only gripe is that it doesn't remove my mineral makeup as well as liquid makeup, so I sometimes have to wash twice with it or was with something else at night to remove the makeup fully. I will continue to use this product.
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.
