This may sound strange - but this is the best face wash I've ever used. After positive reviews for this product (standard, 'no more tears' formula) as a eye makeup remover I tried it as that (extremely sucessfully). I noticed that as some of the product got on the rest of my face, like under eye area and cheeks in the process of removing my eye makeup I didn't suffer any breakouts. One day I was in a hurry and didn't feel like getting my alternate, standard, Cetaphil facial wash out, and already had the baby shampoo on my hands, so I decided to try it out all over my face just to see what would happen. The result: my skin was extremely clean, my pores appeared minimized, and I had no need to follow up with moisturizer as it didn't dry out my skin. After a week and a half my skin is clearer and more even toned. I've been using it for this purpose with no followup moisturizer (I have oily skin) and paried with aspirin mask, my skin has NEVER looked better in years. I think my skin may have been suffering due to a barrage of product use, and lots of switching up moisturizers or treatments - the simplicity of the baby shampoo is superb and my skin has responded positively. I'm hesitant to say this out loud since my luck is that it will change BUT I've gone without foundation/concealer for the past two days as a result of using this product as a face wash, avoiding my usual heavy moisturizers and using aspirin mask religiously. No, my skin isn't "perfect" but it's quite a bit better than it was when I started, AND, I've not gotten one single zit in the week and a half I've used it - which, normally I'd wake up with about 3 new zits per day, minimum, and then try to combat it with aspirin mask, salt mask, hydrogen peroxide, Aquaphor, etc.... Try it, you might like it. ***UPDATE*** It's been about 2 months now, and I'm STILL raving about J&J baby shampoo as a facial cleanser. I can't see me switching to anything ever again. I have one in the shower, one in the medicine cabinet and a tiny one for travel. Still people, STILL have not had one full fledged made-it-to-the-surface zit since I started using this 2 months ago. It's my HG facial wash for sure. So glad I tried it.
