this a great mild cleanser. i have sensitive/normal/oily skin and i was looking for a soap type substitute. it seems to remove all my facial makeup, but i still use cold cream with a cotton pad to get rid of eye makeup.

i used to remove my makeup with Cetaphil, then rinse afterwards so this is a little more work. however, I think Cetaphil caused milia...

this is your basic no-nonsense foaming face cleaner, works pretty well, doesn't dry and costs 4 bucks a bottle.

i would buy it again (i have a new bottle of alpha hydrox foaming cleanser too now that MUAers rave about, so we'll see which i stick with)

This has been my favorite face wash of all time! It is good at taking my make-up off, it makes me skin feel soft, and it is dirt cheap. My HG!!!
UPDATE: I am still using this product, even with the new packaging it works great. Still no break-outs and it makes my skin feel smooth, fresh, and clean.

After trying almost all of the Cetaphil cleansers, I noticed that they didn't remove makeup as well as I hoped. My derm then suggested the OoO foaming face wash, and can I say I am impressed!! I love the fact that it totally removes all of my makeup, and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. It also has no additives, so it doesn't change the PH level of your skin (prompting breakouts, dryness, etc.). I've been using it a little over a week, and have already received compliments on my skin complexion. It has definately given me greater confidence when I choose not to wear my makeup because my skin looks and feels great!

This is the best gentle foaming cleanser I've ever tried. It's not luxurious at all (no scent, no cool disposable washcloth), but it gets the job done and does it well. I really like how it takes off all my make-up (including eye make-up) and doesn't sting at all, even when my eyes and face were irritated because of allergies. While I do miss my Olay Daily Facials, I had to give those up because I needed a non-BHA cleanser, and this one is absolutely wonderful! Plus, it didn't break me out at all (even Cetaphil causes cystic acne on me).

this is my grail cleanser for the morning. i have combo skin (oily in the t-zone,) and it doesn't strip my skin at all. this will not leave you squeeky clean, but will give you nice soft skin. since i started using it my random breakouts have stopped, and i am less oily.

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.
