This is the perfect cleanser for my combo/acne prone/sensitive skin. It never overstrips, and yet does not over moisturize (even though the name is "Gentle HYDRATING"). It actually removes all my m/u, even mascara, and all the other "gentle" cleansers I've tried could not do that. My skin is soft and smooth, not tight and begging for a moisturizer, after I wash. It's so inexpensive too! Definitely a HG! I just hope they don't d/c it. :)
I bought this after reading the cosmetic cop's reviews. I was looking for a great inexpensive cleanser that would not strip my skin. I have combo skin in summer and winter. Winter tends to be a little dry but still have those areas where, if I apply a heavy cream, I will get break outs. I HATE BREAK OUT !!!This was the HG of all cleansers ...NEVER 1 SINGLE BREAKOUT. I buy it online 4 bottles at a time. Even turned my husband on to it and now his oily skin looks great. Best cleanser out there. Really removes makeup easily. A must try!!!!!!!
Very mild and gentle on your face. Great when coming home and have that I HAVE TO WASH MY MAKEUP off my face feeling. Also I like to mix it with scrubs from other brands to lessen the concentration and harshness on my skin. I would compare it to Cetaphil just not as well known or easy to find. Plain jane pump container.
This low-lathering cleanser rinses well and leaves my sensitive, combination skin feeling really fresh without any tightness. Though it's labeled "hydrating" - I think people w/ dry skin may find they have to follow up w/ a moisturizer immediately after use. I plan to alternate this cleanser w/ Aveeno's Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads (my all time fav) or OoO's Daily Facials for sensitive skin.
I find this cleanser too drying for my dry skin. It left my face tight.
Well, I finally found a worthy cleanser! I was using Dove's sensitive essentials but I realized it was leaving a film on my face. So I started trying different face washes and this one was just right, non drying, no fragrance, and it removes makeup well enough. I like it so much I'm trying to get my sister to use it! (I just love convincing her to do things my way!) It works great on my oily, sensitive skin.
This is a good "general" cleanser. I have oily skin, but it gets very dry on the cheeks, especially in winter. This cleanser effectively cleanses (proof is on the clean cotton pad I use for my toner after cleansing), it doesn't overly dry my skin, and it does not sting my eyes. I have occasional breakouts and this has not appeared to cause any additional problems. In fact my skin is looking very clear. It is not extremely moisturizing though, so if you have very dry skin I would recommend a more hydrating cleanser.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. I've been using it daily for a few weeks now, and right now I'm going to say it's just average. Not good, not bad. It has a nice lather and takes off makeup well, but my face is tight every time I use it, and I get dry flakes on the corners of my mouth and chin. However, I don't know if it's this product or just the ultra dry winter air, I've been having a hard time with my sensitive skin this winter. I'll come back and change this review in the spring if it starts to work better... but for now, it's nothing special.
This is a soap/fragrance free cleanser that suds up really well. It seemed to wash off my makeup well and leave my skin feeling okay afterwards. It comes in a pump bottle that will last me for months. However, I went back to using my Loreal dermo foaming cleanser which has more of a cushioning feel when I wash my face.
I am happy to say that I love this product! I've been searching for the perfect cleanser and in doing so bought both high end and drugstore types. This cleanser is easy on my wallet and cleans my dry/sensitive skin beautifully without any residue feeling. I've been using it about 3 weeks now and have not found it to be overdrying as others have mentioned.
