I hated this soap.
Save your money and use Almay Gently Clean Non-Oily Face Makeup Remover Pads and your skin will love it
I have to say I have used the infamous 3 step system and this could have possibly started my skin on its downhill spiral into combo/acne prone/sensitive hell. But I have found that the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar is exactly the same at almost more than half the price why buy this. The packaging is nice to have the little tray but just buy a travel soap dish at walmart works just as good. Save your money.
I have dry/sensitive skin and I really like this soap. It doesn't leave my face dry or irritated and works well with the rest of my skin routine. Result = great skin ! It may look expensive for soap but it lasts a very long time. UPDATE : I removed two lippies, because I found a better cleanser for my skin. I realised even if this was working, I had more trouble keeping my skin hydrating and I think it was more reactive. It looked good, but was always on the limit of what my skin could endure. Now I am even happier with Avene rinse-off gentle gel cleanser.
This is a terrible product. I've got sensitive/combo skin and this just DOES not work for me at all. Makes me dry and flaky. I might as well take a bar of Irish Spring and rub it all over my face. Yuck. Depletes my face of ANY and ALL moisture, which later in the day, makes me more oily to compensate. Like the cute case it comes in and the cheap price but that is about it. At one point I was using the three step system and complained to the SA that the extra mild soap, take the day off, cl #2 and DDML was too much for my skin, everything stung, and I was still breaking out, she said what I needed was to add a different facial cleanser before the facial soap. ?. That is when I quit the three step all together. Now I just use the toner. And I switched from #2 to mild clarifying toner. Much better. Oil of Olay cleanser and moisturizer work much better for me.
i really really don't like this...it's a pricier soap but it's still soap...doesn't feel like it should be used on my face...and the case is so hard to close...also i have to wash the case every time i wash my face to keep the soap from not stick to it...really disappointed...
It makes a good camp/backpacking soap. Since it's a little drying, I wouldn't use it every day.
Nothing wrong with this product. Lathers just enough, pleasent smell (although it has no scent) and works great on my skin. No dry areas at all. Good product.
PROs: I love the creamy lather, and that it's fragrance free. CONs: It's BAR SOAP! Bar soap is notoriously drying (yes, even this "Extra Mild" soap), and the ingredients that keep it in its bar form can clog pores. And it's $11 for incredibly basic soap.
it's soap, it's a bit pricey but it lasts forever. It cleans my face ok, but doesn't budge eye makeup (i know i'm supposed to use a separate product for this but hey, i'm lazy). I also had to educate my boyfriend that this is not for use on your entire body ("do you have any idea what that tiny little bar cost?") which was a challenge.
I'll probably buy another bar, I like the bonuses.
I have tried both this and the mild soap for my combination sensitive skin, and out of the two I prefer this one. It is lovely and creamy and lathers well, and my skin was left feeling very soft after moisturising. However, the lady at the Clinique counter told me there was a possibility it could break out my combination skin so I decided not to risk it. Just thought of another minus point- I swiped over with a clarifying lotion after use and there was still dirt on my face. I swiped over my face after using another cleanser (just happened to be Simple's foaming cream cleanser) and no trace... so perhaps these soaps don't clean very well. That probably is the reason Clinique like you to use a pre-soap cleanser in addition to the bar. Plus point- these soaps last a long time- they're HUGE! I quite like the look of them- they're sorta retro. Then again that is probably because Clinique haven't improved them since circa 1950!
