I can't believe that I haven't reviewed this product yet. I have purchased this so many times over the years. It is my go-to for facial cleansers. I stray from time to time - I sometimes succumb boredom and fancy advertising, but eventually come back to this. It's a great, no fuss, no fru fur, just does what it sais and it does it well.
I love that it has no fragrance, no dies, no silly 'beads' or wild claims. It's just basic. It cleanses well without irritating my skin. It's gentle enough that I can use it around my eyes to remove makeup without a problem. I can use quite a bit to remove my makeup without any remover before, and it gets everything off. love it.
After using it because it's what I have always used. my SO has come accustomed to it, and it's all that he will use. Anytime I buy something else he doesn't even want to try it.
The only other cleanser that I have liked this much is the L'oreal 360 for senstive skin. The reason I like that one is because of the scrublettes it comes with (which I save, and use with this cleanser - or whatever one I currently have) and that it us more moisturizing. However, this one is half this price, and I like the foaming action - I feel like it gets my skin cleaner then any other cleanser, which is amazing because it's also the most gentle. In terms of ability to cleanse and remove makeup, C&C does it better I think. L'oreal sometimes takes a few passes to get all my make up off. I like the packing of this better, too.
The packing of this is great! The pump is convenient. Sometimes it's hard to get the last few drops at the bottom, but no biggie.
This is really economical as well - It's about $3 and it lasts me a few months using 2x daily since you really don't need a lot because it foams up nicely and cleanses so well.
I recently bought a few other cleansers because I wanted to try out some other brands, since this is all I used for so many years. I thought maybe I was missing out on something, but most of them irritate my skin with their added dies and fragrances. I actually can't wait to use them up and buy this again.
I will likely stick to this in the warmer months, and the l'oreal when my skin needs more moisture.
Excellent cleansing product! I love that is comes in a pump, is very gentle on my skin, effectively removes make-up and gunk from my face, and actually has not dried out my skin! Bonus is it is cheap too and available at any d/s.
Update: I'm now on my fifth bottle and this has become my HG cleanser. I love the lather, removes m/u, doesn't dry out my skin, and have had no irritation. Plus it costs around $5!!
My holy grail! I have been using this since I am 16 years old and I have to say, I had acne as a teen but once I started using this, it really subsided. I use it once in the morning and once at night. It's a great basic cleanser and makeup remover. I pray this never gets discontinued. I have noticed several stores don't carry it anymore.
I thought I really loved this product for about a year. I have oily/acne-prone skin so I really loved the foaming aspect because it cleaned my skin really well. However, I recently googled "acne detective" which is a website that tells you all the comedogenic and irritating ingredients in products. This cleanser had a lot of those ingredients including sodium laureth sulfate which is pretty much a poison to your skin. I immediately stopped using this product and did some research and I started using a Noxzema cleanser. I rarely ever break out anymore and when I was using this cleanser I was getting at least 3 breakouts a day. I think my skin is just very sensitive to harmful ingredients. So my advice for you is to check the harmful ingredients in products and be aware of what you are putting on your face. I won't buy this product again.
Great price, packaging, and easy to find.
This cleanser is very simple, and calming. You can't beat it. Must try!!
Really good basic cleanser. It removes all dirt and oil off my face, even really stubborn make-up like waterproof mascara, leaving my bare skin fresh and clean. It is gentle enough to use everyday; no stinging or irritation. This cleanser also smells sooo good! I love the smell. My only complaint is that it's a bit drying and I already have dry skin, so I've reserved using it only once a day at night before a more heavy duty moisturizer. Besides that, I definitely recommend! (It's also super cheap! $3.something at Target!)
This product was sensitive on my skin, it did not remove makeup well for me (I do wear full coverage makeup). So I would use this after a makeup remover. The packaging works well. There was not as much lather as I would of liked. But my biggest issue with this product is that it is test on animals, and I'm afraid that's a no no for me.
This is a great cleanser for sensitive skin and wanting to good makeup remover at the same time. It can burn the eye area a little. But great at removing face makeup. I have very sensitive skin and this was great for me, plus its cheap.
This is a really good cleanser - in my opinion, definitely the best out of all of Clean and Clear's. It's gentle but VERY effective at removing non-waterproof makeup, and never leaves my skin feeling dry or tight like other cleansers have. True to its name, it's also great for if you have sensitive skin or rosacea. The pump also makes it super-convenient. At around $4.50 for 6.78 fl. oz. ($.66/fl. oz.), you can't go wrong with the cheap price tag. If you're a fan of the formula but not the packaging or the brand name, Olay's Gentle Foaming Face Wash, for Sensitive Skin with Aloe is basically the same thing in tube form. Hope this was helpful! :)
