I'm conflicted. I feel like this product is not as concentrated and thick as it was the past 2 times I bought it. I purchased it right from the website all 3 times. It also went up in price. I liked it enough to rebuy it 3 times, 4 if you count the first tube that I lost while traveling. This last time though, I'm a little disappointed.

I bought this as part of a set from Sephora because my rosacea was bugging me and my current routine seems to have stopped working.
The good news - it didn't irritate my sensitive skin
The bad news - it has sucked all of the moisture out of my skin
This might be ok for the summer when it's 100 degrees and humid but it's not for me in the winter when it's dry and cold.
Edited: Makes a great body wash so it wasn't a total waste.

I just used up an entire tube of this and have a new tube in my shower already. After trying several cleansers to try and clear up my skin with either no or worse results I picked this up on a whim at Sephora. It's a gentle formula that cleans the skin very well and removes quite a bit of makeup. I use it in the morning and in the evening after removing my makeup. It has reduced the amount of blemishes and frequency of my breakouts significantly. I love that it is fragrance free, there's no need for irritating fragrances on your face as far as I'm concerned. It can be a little drying so just ensure that you moisturize well. I will continue to repurchase this, it's quite an amazing little product.

Received a generous sample of this from Sephora. Have used for two days and I have to stop. My face is dry, red and peeling from this. Way too strong for sensitive skin. The only positive was it took off makeup very well, but not worth it. Would not buy this.
My favorite cleanser is CeraVe.

A wonderful cleanser that does everything it needs to at an affordable price! After reading glowing reviews I ordered this, and upon opening the tube noticed the pearlescent, creamy texture. My heart sank, for it appeared very similar to other cleansers I've tried in the past that ended up drying out my sensitive, oily skin. Luckily, I had nothing to fear as this cleanser has been nothing but a joy to use!
It's not a foaming cleanser, but just a small amount mixed with water is enough to remove all of the day's dirt as well as the stubborn mineral sunscreen I wear. It does all of this without a hint of irritation, and leaves my skin smooth and soft, not slimy like a lot of cleansers do. I tend to use this in the evenings only, instead opting for the much cheaper, less potent Boots Simply Sensitive Foaming Cleanser in the morning. This is in no way because I prefer that to this product, it just makes sense to save this for occasions when a more thorough cleansing is required; that way the tube will hopefully last twice as long!
This is probably as close to HG as I'll get in a cleanser, and I'd strongly recommend it.

I love this, and it's not too expensive. I use it once to take off all my makeup -- it takes it off quickly -- even eye makeup. And then I use it again with my Clarisonic. It foams, but does not dry at all. It left my skin clean AND soft. I will purchase again.

I like this cleanser. It's got a creamy consistency and true to word it does feel as though it maintains your skin barrier layer yet removes dirt. No breakouts or bad effects using this and although I don't use it on a daily basis anymore, I still do use in when I'm having a dry day or when my skin is feeling sensitive. Will most likely purchase again when my tube finishes - especially good for winter months.

I bought this product after receiving the sample packaged version from sephora. I loved it! I haven't even heard of this brand before either, but because it was a sample just given by the cashier sales associate I figured I had nothing to lose. Most face cleansers would either dry my skin out or feel like there was residue left. But I was surprised with this one because of the way it felt on my skin and the way my skin looked and felt after. My skin felt softer AND looked brighter. The smell didn't bother me and the mild lather felt good, not drying. The only con is it's a bit pricey ($20) but I feel it a worthy investment. If something drastic happens within the next couple weeks like breakouts, etc., I will leave an update post.

I have very bad psoriasis on my face, ears and scalp. Around my nose I get these nasty ozie patches of red skin. This lady at Sephora recommended I try FAB, and for the price I decided to give it a shot.
The first thing I noticed when using the cleanser was that my face didn't feel dry and nasty after washing. For once it felt like I got a nice deep cleanse on my skin. I used the cleanser in conjunction with the Ultra Repair Cream...and let me tell you, in a few days the redness was going away, and after a week you would never have guessed that I had psoriasis on my face! While my skin is still slightly dry (by my own fault of not moisturizing every day...) my skin condition has improved so much! If I neglect moisturizing for a few days I will start to get some redness, but once I remember to moisturize it goes away. If you have psoriasis, you don't need to grin and bare the redness and itchiness you get. Try FAB's cleanser and moisturizer...and if you see results you should try their other products. If you get their special kits they sell at Sephora you usually end up saving money.
I have a post I wrote on Ipsy that showed what my skin looked like before I used FAB products. I will also include a link of what my skin looks like now.

The dates are not consistent with my use of FAB. It took me a long time to build up the courage to show others what my skin had looked like before I started using FAB.

I really like this facewash a lot. I usually use a Murad cleanser because it doesn't irritate or strip my skin, and I've been happy with it, but I thought I'd give FAB a try. I've been using this FAB cleanser for about 2 weeks now, but I'm just going to share my initial thoughts when I first used it and then complete my review with my final thoughts after continued use.
When I first used it the first thing I noticed was the texture, it's kind of like the texture of Jergan's moisturizing handwash or those moisturizing bodywashes that look and feel like a creamy moisturizer and gel liquid soap were whisked together. I applied it to my dampened skin and the second thing I noticed (and was really turned off by) was the scent. The scent is faint, but it smells like a much weaker version of those public restroom handwashes that smell like someone drank dish soap and then barfed it up. You know, like it has got that stomach acid vomit kind-of-smell to it. Anyway, the vomit scent quickly dissipated but I was nervous this facewash was going to strip my skin because it had the scent, though faint, of harsh public bathroom soap. I got a little bit of a lather, but not much, it lathered more if I added water but still, not a lot of lather, which is fine. It felt very light and gentle on my skin during the facewashing, and rinsed away very easily leaving no residue which I was very happy with. But what really impressed me right away was how bright and how calm and balanced my skin looked. I'm usually a little red after washing my face from the rubbing motions of my hands and the towel, especially around my nose and chin, but there was hardly any red in my skin. My skin also looked clean and felt soft and smooth and not stripped. I still moisturize afterwards but I was sure I'd be scrambling to get my skin moisturized after using this because the scent smelled like something that would have sucked all moisture out of my face, but I really didn't have to, my skin was very comfortable and felt happy. So, that was my first impression. Which hasn't changed really in the past 2 weeks.
With continued use this facewash noticeably brightens my complexion, noticeably reduces redness, and noticeably leaves my skin soft and smooth. That it leaves my skin smooth is quite interesting, and a bit of a puzzle for me, because I don't think this is an exfolient? But yet it somehow makes my skin feel so smooth, like how my skin feels after using a gentle glycolic peel. So that result was a pleasant surprise and how it accomplishes that result remains a mystery to me, lol.
My skin is also clearer and less congested and less oily/shiny than it was 2 weeks ago. By clearer I mean that I haven't had any zits since using this. Usually when a zit goes away another one shows up (just to make my life my interesting, I guess?) so that I haven't had any new zits and my oil production seems more balanced has been very nice.
Anyway, I'm really pleased with this cleanser, I like the results it gives more than the Murad - which was my favorite. And I like that the results are noticeable enough that I don't have to wonder if I'm just imagining results. So this cleanser is going to be replacing my Murad and I'm going to see about trying other products from the FAB line because I was so impressed by this product.
Deducting one star only because of the scent. Otherwise, highly recommend.
**For reference, my skin is dry/combo and prone to being dehydrated and I get large pores on and around my nose and shiny in the t-zone.
