This product is divine! I picked it up for the harsh winter months that give my sensitive skin the flakies. The results: soft, clean skin even before applying moisturizer. Color me impressed. It lathers nicely, too--strange for such a moisturizing product.
(It also has not made me break out yet, and everything makes me break out.)
I was using Olay sensitive skin face wash but it was not removing all of my long wear foundation. I saw this in a magazine and picked it up for $4.99 at Walmart. I really like it. I only use it at night. It removes all of my makeup with one cleanse. No residue left on my towel like with the olay cleanser. I have oily skin and do not find it too drying. There is also an exfoliating version of this cleanser.
I bought this cleanser after I found one product that actually says it removes make up as a face wash. I went looking for the yes to cucumbers face wash but didn't find it. I didn't like this. I like to wear heavy coats of l'oreal voluminous carbon black mascara and waterproof eyeliner and it took 3 pea sized amounts to get it off. I didn't wanna use gobs of it, because i wasn't sure if it would irritate my eyes, but 3 washes didn't help the situation.
It did work, but took 3 tries. I returned it the next day. I was looking for something to replace my cold cream and this was not it.
First let me say, I used the original Ponds Cream Cleaser in the pot thing. It was good for getting makeup off, but getting the product out was a pain in the butt and I would often get too much since I had to scoop it out. Plus it left a weird oily film on me.
So I got this product in hopes it would work just as well (in the sense of getting makeup off) but without the oily film.
I immediately loved the packaging right off. Having the product in the bottle is 10 times better. It also took off all my makeup. Then, no oily film!
Let me tell you, I wear lots of makeup so the thought that this alone can getting ALL of my makeup off? Yeah. I'm a very happy camper.
Okay, after YEARS (and I do mean years) of searching for the perfect cleanser for my face -- one up to the task of deep cleaning my incredibly oily skin, but also able to remove ANY AND ALL TRACES of makeup -- I have finally found it!
This stuff is the bomb! It removed every single trace of makeup from my face -- even my eye makeup and I only had to wash my face one time! Not kidding about that either. I had been using a cleanser by Oil of Olay and another by L'OREAL that each left traces of makeup after washing, before walking around my local Walgreen's one day and stumbling on this product.
It contains clay -- perfect for my oily skin, and it also makes my skin feel refreshed afterwards. I am not kidding when I say that I literally go, "Ah" after I've used it. It cleans deep down and that for me, is the most important thing. I shouldn't have to wash my face twice OR have to follow with a toner to get what the cleanser didn't.
I think I'd just gotten so used to mediocrity that I just settled for products that weren't getting the job done and just making do with what I had.
Not anymore with this one! Just a pea-sized shape spreads and cleans your entire face. So the large tube will last me for quite a while.
If you're tired of settling for a cleanser that doesn't get the job done, you HAVE TO try this!
Trust me, you're gonna love this product too!
