This stuff is seriously disgusting. It smells foul and it leaves a weird residue behind on your face. I hate this and would recommend this to no one.

I don't use this at night as I don't think it's good for removing sunscreen,makeup or anything much really. So I only use this in the mornings as my skin is driest then due to my air conditioning and there isn't much for me to clean off anyway. It's great for me in the mornings as it really doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry and leaves it nice and soft. Overall, you can get something similar/better for much less so don't bother with this!

ok i am hesitantly writing this review. either this or the elizabeth arden 8 hour cream was too much for my skin and it dried it up in a bad reaction type way. i REALLY hope it wa the 8 hour cream becausi loved this cleanser!!!!!my skin looked so healthy and plumped after using it!i will continue to use this week and post the results!
ok no i tried again and it does nothing for my skin, and like other reviews on here i found it doesnt remove makeup well at all, my boots own cleanser is by far better, dissapointed

At first when i tried thsi product, i did not like it at all, felt like it just melted into my skin and did nothing. But my sister likes it and swears by it all the time. One day i ran out of my cleanser and i needed something tha tis moisturizing enough to use with my clarisonic brush. I used this cleanser only because i had nothing else, and for some reason, it worked really well. I ended up finishing the whole tube. I find that it works better when your skin is moist, but not wet. I use about a dimes amount, and just apply that straight onto my clarisonic, and then use it all over my face. It makes my face really soft and clean afterwards, with no sticky/oily feeling and is very moisturizing. I recommend this cleanser for anyone that has a clarisonic brush and neeeds a moisture-rich cleanser. Picked this up at a warehouse sale, so it was not full price.

I got a pretty large tube of this as a GWP and I do not like it at all.
1) does not remove makeup very well - I had to follow with a regular cleanser (whats the point then?)
2) OVERLY fragranced. It irritated my skin.
I really do not recommend. I will be giving this away.

For me it's a pretty good cleanser when my skin feels most dry during cold and humid winter in Taipei. Most of cleansers just make my skin drier after wash in such season, but this one leaves it moisturized and soft.
I don't have problems removing make-up with this cleaser, because I always use cream cleansers after I remove my make-up with Shiseido Elixir make-up cleansing oil.

I've tried quite a few EA products and this one disappointed me as much as the others did. Did not remove makeup.

Pretty useless. Feels good going on, but doesn't remove makeup, and doesn't seem to have any results at all. I would not buy this again.

I used this cold cream type cleanser a few years ago. This is a so-so cleanser. I have extremely dry skin and it works well for that, but only in the morning. Once, I put makeup or sunscreen on it doesn't cleanse that well. It's also pricey for the size. Avon sold a cold cream cleanser years ago called Nutura. It came in a 4oz tube that was creamy textured and washed rinsed off beautifully. I've never found another cold cream type cleanser that has ever matched, Nutura's. You can try Mary Kay's 3in1 for normal to dry, especially for the winter months. Unfortunately, E.A. and M.K. cleansers contain some mineral oil. Some people steer away from mineral oil products, so use your own judgement.

I bought this cleanser years ago, when my skin was drier than it is now (now it is more combo-dry). I have to say I really didn't like it. It had a nice, creamy texture, but it didn't seem to remove makeup or do any kind of cleaning at all. It was very difficult to rinse off, as well. Ewww.

I see all these positive reviews, but this item garners my first very negative review.
I bought some samples of this cleanser from Ebay. I was looking forward to using them. They do not remove all of the make-up from my face even if I scrub hard and thoroughly. I always get a lot of foundation on the cotton when I follow-up this cleanser with astringent. That never happened with the foaming facial cleansers I usually use. I don't like that it doesn't foam. I end up using a lot trying to make sure my skin gets clean. I just don't feel like it does that job in any way. The only positive thing I have to say about it is that it does leave my skin with a nice texture. Maybe if I had all the money in the world I'd use a foaming cleanser and follow it with this product, but as it is I won't buy it again.
I give this product a big thumbs down.

I have tried a lot of Elizbeth Arden products over the years and most of them have been disasters. This however is a really nice cleanser. A thick, pink cream that, unlike most lotion and cream cleansers, thoroughly cleanses and rinses off clean. I haven't tried tissuing it off because I think that would leave more of a residue than rinsing. I have sensitive, dry skin and this doesn't bother it at all. Come winter, when I'm very dry, I will probably switch back to my Dermalogica cleanser, but for now I'm very happy with this one.

The actual name of this product is Ceramide Purifying Cream Cleanser. I don't know that I would have found this product on my own; that is, I wouldn't have sought out my skincare at the EA counter, but I received a generous-sized sample in a GWP. To my delight, I found this water-rinseable cream cleanser to not only effectively remove makeup and sunscreen, it also didn't cause my atopic/rosacean skin to either break out or get red. I have purchased several tubes since then and consider this item an HG in my skincare routine.
I generally apply this cream cleanser to a dry face, then rinse with lukewarm water. I use my regular cleanser to follow (LRP Toleriane Dermo Cleanser), but on my "lazy" nights, I use just the EA (with no negative reactions). Unlike a couple of the reviewers here, I find this product to have no bad fragrance; in fact, it has has no added fragrance, save for a tiny amount of sandalwood oil (to be found at the tail end of the ingredients list).
The only drawback I find with this cleanser is the price. EA has just raised the price on a 4.2 fl. oz tube of this cleanser to $25.00. Since it's not my primary cleanser, over time I might find it hard to justify continuing its use. However, as Clinique has just discontinued a similar product, sources for a water-rinseable cream cleanser suitable for my skintype are diminishing.

THis cleanser is very gentle and it does not break me out!! Actually I think it is the most gentle face wash I have every used. I will buy again only because I sometimes I fell the need for a gentle cleanser!
Also this face wash does not smell at all.

I really liked this cleanser. I like the fact that you can either tissue or rinse it off. I rinsed mine, and it got all the makeup off my face. I have Eczema, and am going through a flare up on my face right now-really sensitive, skin flaking off, etc. This didn't hurt my skin at all!! I didn't notice any smell at all. My skin felt clean, but not tight if you know what I mean. I will repurchase this when I run out. Love this!!

I really love this product. It is a nice pink cream in a big white tube that you rub over your face and can either tissue off or rinse off. Even though my skin is a bit oily I find this cleans it well without stripping it or drying it. I use this when I've been out in the sun and want to be very gentle with my skin. It leaves it soft, smooth and clean. Has no smell or odor at all. Maybe the others here got theirs off eBay or in a swap and the product was old and rancid. I get mine new in the store and there is no smell or greasiness at all.

Ditto with Kealoha! Did a nice job removing my makeup, but left my skin greasy and SMELLS!
