UPDATE: I am no longer going to use this soap, It is starting to make my cheeks red, itchy and slightly burning. My son has started to experience itching on his cheeks. We are never going to purchase this again and are stopping the use of it today! We are going to try out Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar. I have been looking for something very basic to use on our skin that cleanses it but doesn't irritate it, hopefully this is it cause I would prefer it to be inexpensive.**********************************************
I have only been using this product now for 3 days and so has my son. He is 10 years old and had what looked like the start of acne on his cheeks. He has had little flesh colored bumps on his skin for a very long time, and after using this soap, they are starting to fade and his cheeks are smooth again. I have noticed that my skin is looking smoother and more even toned. So far we are loving this facial bar. I have very sensitive skin and it has not dried my face out yet. I do not use it on my eyes, I use eye makeup remover for that. I also follow up with Olay's basic sensitive skin lotion with SPF. My son just uses the bar. I will update this in a week to let you know if we still love it after that. I bought the fragrance free version.
To me this is a classic... this was the first acne treatment I have ever used in my life.
I bought this in the original bar formula, and I find it to be adequate at cleansing. I use a brush from Merle Norman and gently scrub my face. I follow this with witch hazel, and then Eucerin Co-Q 10 Creme for sensitive skin. I don't like the strange smell, but considering I follow woth witch hazel, one cancels out the other. I will repurchase but in the fragrance free version.
I usually buy expensive stuff for my face because I want to take good care of it. But I used this just because I grabbed it last minute and wow am I suprised. It left my skin feeling so clean. It takes off make-up so easily. I love it. And I don't have to spend 40 dollars on something to wash my face with (although I do use expensive moisturizers after). Loved it, so save your money ladies (and gents) buy this and spend your money on your moisturizers, because truely you just need a clean face to apply the stuff that is actually going to do the anti-aging work. Oh... and I'm giving it a four because I dislike the smell, but I'll get over it. Its a great product.
I just tried this today. It did leave my face feeling slightly coated and congested, but it cleaned my skin without overdrying. The smell is really atrocious, somewhat murky and dank. I wish I had known beforehand that it contains sodium tallowate, which is salt from animal fat. I won't be rebuying this, but my family is fine with using this up.
I'm on the lookout for an all-natural olive oil soap, which is supposed to be gentler than this soap.
I keep buying neutrogena things, even though they aways screw up my skin. I never learn...
This was no different. My skin isn't too bad at all, mild breakouts, clogged pores. Recently I started breaking out ALL over my face, in cysts! Whiteheads too, I thought it was my makeup that I've been using forever. Then I realized this was the only thing different I've been using, and I noticed right now that when I stopped using it for a week, my skin cleared up. I guess to each her own, but neutrogena freaks my skin out, skin care and makeup. This is now my hand soap.
Unfortunately before I realized this I just used it again tonight now that my skin is better, I pray tomorrow my face won't look like pizza.
This stuff was awful, it made me breakout and left my skin really dry. It did not work for me.
I used the Acne Prone formula when I was a teen and it was a godsend. Everything else was too harsh and drying and ended up causing more problems. This product balanced my skin and took me from a pizza faced teen to someone who got compliments on my skin. It took time and dilligence to get there, but I also noticed immediate results. After 6 weeks my skin my skin was as clear as a teenagers could be. I have used it sporadically over the years to boost the condition of my skin as well. You can't beat the price and I would surely try this product for a month before I consulted a dermatologist or bought into the expensive subsription products. (I use ProActiv on and off now because I can, but if I was on a tighter budget, I think this bar would be a close comparison).
I have combination skin which is oily, and I sometimes get pimples. I decided on this bar because it was one of the cheapest ones at the store. It smells fairly strongly, and it doesn't give you mountains of lather, but it's good stuff. The bar tends to get very slippery if you hold it under running water, so what I did was get my hands wet and then lather up the bar. This produced enough lather to wash my face. It rinses pretty easily, and left my skin feeling clean and comfortable. The only thing I didn't enjoy was that the scent tended to linger on my skin for a good 10-15 minutes after rinsing. I'd buy this again for sure, but I'll try the fragrance free version next time!
I'm on my 4th bar and I love this stuff! I use the fragrance free version of this and it just works well for me. I only use it in the morning since I highly doubt this would do anything to remove my makeup. It cleans my skin, doesn't dry me out, and doesn't irritate me. plus it doesn't irritate my acne either which is always a plus. Overall a gentle, no frills yet fabulous cleanser.
