I have been on the hunt for something to help with my red/irritated skin. I cannot afford Murad, etc right now so I gave this a try. I was pleasantly surprised! I love the packaging. It foams and cleans nicely without leaving a film on my face. I have only been using it for a week along with the moisturizer and my face already looks less red. I am very happy I gave these a try. BTW.... I purchased them at Target and they each came with samples + they were 10% off. Now I have full size for at home and samples to take to the boyfriends.
I love this cleanser. I've been using it for about a month now and it has totally reduced my acne (i'm not completely clear yet but i have hope). I had been suffering from severe inflammation for about a year. I was trying all sorts of OTC acne products but nothing was working.
I think this product will be good for those who know that their skin is sensitive and are having no luck with traditional acne products. I will definitely be repurchasing. EDIT: I did use this for a while but it never got rid of my acne and my face was always very red. I've switched to the Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar which is working much better.
Wow! I really like this. I use this as an evening cleanser and it takes off almost all of my makeup, including MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. It doesn't irritate or dry out my dryishg-yet-breakout-prone skin at all, and my skin has improved since I started using it (I still use SpectroJel in the morning, since it doesn't remove makeup as well; I had been using L'Oreal Visibly clean in the evenings before switching to this). I will definitely repurchase.
This has been the best cleanser for my acne prone skin. I am fair skinned so blemishes look worse than they really are. After about 2 weeks of use my skin is clear, pores look reduced, and my skin has a nice tone. I use this in addition to Clinque's total turnaround, the Ultra calming day lotion, and Pond's microdermabrasion. My face has never looked better!
After giving up on foaming cleansers for years, I tried this because of the great reviews. This cleanser is truly perfect - it is as gentle as Cetaphil but gives a more satisfying clean feeling. My face looks less red and, as a totally unexpected side benefit, actually feels less oily than usual.
After reading the raves in August's Elle, I had to get this. For those who didn't read this piece, Johnson & Johnson researched the herb feverfew and its significant anti-inflammatory properties. You should really read this article, it is very informative. At any rate, J&J uses a specific feverfew product that has its allergenic properties removed while leaving the benefits of the herb intact.
Now, on to the product itself. This cleanser is almost perfect. The packaging is great -- it dispenses the exact amount of product required and is sturdy. The foam is the loveliest: cushiony and rich, it cleanses the skin like nobody's business without stripping the natural moisture. And it's dirt cheap.
Why the 4 star rating you ask? It stings the eyes, so do not use it for eye makeup removal. That's okay, as I still use my Pond's at night. But this is a wonderful morning cleanser and will refresh your face without irritation.
I agree this cleanser seems to cleanse well and remove makeup but can we say stings the eyes? Yikes. This is about the worst I've come across - don't open your eyes with this on your face.
I've been using this for about 2 weeks now, and I think what's not to like? IT's gentle, it cleanses well, it's cheap. . .
This may just become my new non-irritating stand-by cleanser. So far so good--no adverse reactions to this--I recommend it.
I absolutely LOVE this soap. I loved it so much that I bought everything from the Ultra-Calming line. It is very gentle, and it cleaned very well, considering I have combination/yet very sensitive skin. I like it much better than the Aveeno brightening line, as well as any high end department store cleanser such as Clinique, Estee Lauder, or Lancome. It is a true foaming cleanser that will remove all your makeup, but won't dry your skin out.
i love this face wash!:) it really works well to take off all my makeup, without drying out my sensitive skin! it also doesn't make me breakout or get oily!
