I absolutely love this cleanser and so far, this is the best by far. I have tried a lot in all price ranges. I love how it foams up and it doesn't have any fragrance. My skin feels so soft and clean after. I'm so glad I read the reviews for it; otherwise, I would have never given it a try. Thanks MUA members!

Overall, I'd say this isn't a bad product if it suits your skin-type. It removes make-up pretty thoroughly for a "sensitive skin" cleanser and is one of the few foaming cleansers I've found that doesn't leave my skin feeling dry and tight immediately afterwards. Unfortunately, after using this for a while I developed those dry red patches on my cheeks that are a clear sign of overly-drying cleansers. I now use Paula's Choice Skin Recovery, which has become my holy grail cleanser. If your skin isn't too dry or sensitive the Olay may work for you, but be aware that the company uses animal testing.

This cleanser is amazing! It is gentle but it removes all my makeup. It is not drying and does not leave my skin feeling tight. It doesn't irritate my skin and it all washes off easily without leaving residue. The pump bottle makes life easier. At $4 a bottle, you really can't go wrong with it.

I think this is my second time reviewing this item.
I've been using this face wash for the past 6 or 7 yrs. Seriously, its the only face wash that really cleans my face without leaving any residue. I will buy this til it discontinue.

This is a great cleanser for my combo, acne-prone skin. It removes all of my makeup, rinses well, and doesn't leave my face feeling dry at all. There's no annoying scent, and I only paid $3.70 for it at Walmart.

I really like this cleanser for winter since my combo skin has become prone to dryness. I don't have sensitive skin but tried this after reading the reviews and find that it works wonderfully for me :) It doesn't foam a great deal (which I sort of like) and does NOT break me out so I really like this alternative. I still prefer my PC cleanser for summer since it handles my oily side better. -------------Update: I knocked a lipstick off b/c I've noticed increased dryness after I use this cleanser as compared with my PC or Sage for regular skin. Still a good drugstore cleanser but not my favorite.

Holy Grail finally!! This is the ONLY cleanser I have found that doesn't leave my skin dry after washing (and I have tried ALOT!) No breakouts, pump bottle, and smooth skin!!!**Update** I still use this once a week for deep cleaning, BUT realized it was the culprit of my flakies. will use in the summer instead.

This is my "Holy Grail" cleanser. It was first brought to my attention on GMA which did a segment on the top cleansers..I have rosacea and this is one of the most gentle cleansers I have come by..It has no fragrance, leaves skin soft, cleans well, and does not irritate..For $3.60, you can't beat it..It beats my $35.00 Clientele Elastology wash by a longshot..One of those cases of, "expensive doesn't mean better."

This is the first face wash I've found that really cleans my skin without drying it out, even in winter. It foams well, rinses clean, and has no scent. I just bought my fourth bottle--a miracle!

i use this to wash my face twice a day, every day. I have mildly sensitive skin that is also dry. I find that it works great and makes my skin feel really smooth. It foams well and i would surely purchase it again. It also does a fine job of removing my makeup, including mascara.
