My skin is extremely acne-prone and oily, but my skin is a little drier around my eyes and mouth. And as I'm turning 35 this year I'm noticing thin lines also. So I hoped that I could use this as an eye makeup remover - and only at that area! But I think this made me breakout right on those areas! I rarely get breakouts on my upper cheekbones, right under my eyes (on the outside), but after using this for 2-3 times I had several new small red pimples there!
I have enough of pimples, so I'll pass on this cleanser! I guess I need something non-comedogenic and oilfree even on my eyes....not only on the rest of my face... The hard is to find something non-drying for that.... :(

Rec'd a sample of this in a SDM promo and have fallen for it, big-time. I have very sensitive skin (rosacea) and this doesn't irritate it at all. I use it with my Olay brush and my skin feels clean -- but not tight in any way -- after use. Prefer it to the Nuxe cleanser (rose) I've been using and my old standby, Cetaphil.
I plan to buy a full size as soon as this runs out.

I enjoyed this cleanser, for me it managed to remove my makeup, but I only wear light makeup on my face. It is also good and soothing for my sensitive skin or when I am having bad allergic reactions. I didn't break out from it even though I have extremely acne prone skin, so I cannot fault it.

This cleanser has become one of my cleansing staples, I don't rinse it with water I double cleanse with it 1 to remove make up then 2 for a deeper complete cleanse i am 39 and my skin is different every day it might be clear for maybe 2 or 3 days in a month if I'm lucky . I've learnt through lots of trial and error as with most of you I suppose. My skin is uneven, combination blemish prone, I scar badly and have pigmentation too. I apply this with my hands to my whole face and neck including my eyes. It never stings or irritates. I like the fact there is no smell. I remove it with a hot Emma hardie cloth. I love the texture it's not too runny and goes a long way also. I couldn't afford it lately but as I use it daily I repurchased. It will remain. It never stings or leaves my skin feeling dry, my skin feels clean. I've also double cleansed with it post peel, it did the trick by soothing my skin. It soothes my spotty sore skin without feeling like I've stripped it.

This is my perfect morning cleanser...after i reached 30 my skin changed and my skin is quite dry every morning when i get up so if i use the same thing i used at night it's really too harsh....i've used cetaphil for a while but it's still too drying for me and my face still gets mildly itchy during the day which is very annoying.........and then i also tried washing with just water or the biotherma cleansing water but its still not doing it for me.........and finally i gave this a try and it's working....my face is soft and relaxed after washing and the itchiness has completely subsided..........the reason i give 4 lippies instead of full 5 is coz i'm not sure if it really cleanses my skin...u have to use a toner after to wipe off the residue even after rinsing..........and there's always yellow stuffs on the cotton pad.....but i will really recommend for people who has dry and irritated skin......i dun see how this can be a good make up remover because it's just too gentle for that purpose.....

It works very well to clean the face and take most makeup off. This is by far the best cleanser I've ever used.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
So far I am loving it. This is a great product for sensitive and breakout prone skin.
I actually usually like the washing the face type cleanser but this is a wipe off and it is doing very nice and gentle things to my skin. I have really been convinced by this cleanser that the water/cleanser route is not longer for me. My sister recommended it and has been using it for about a year.
The drawback I have noted it that if I am wearing certain more high coverage foundations, I do need to use quite a bit of this cleanser and many swipes to get off every trace. I agree with another reviewer that sometimes what I do in that case is use a regular water / and cleanser (I like Spectro gel) to get off the makeup and then I followup with this cleanser to rebalance my skin. I don't use a toner after this at all.
My skin looks glowing and is breakout free so I am happy with this.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
i got this because i wanted to change my make up remover. i wanted sth more creamy as opposed to the micellaire waters i was using from avene and sensibio .
it is ok fop my sensible, oily, acnee-prone skin, meaning it didn't make me break out, but it does not do a good job at removing makeup.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
This cleanser has helped me gradually transition to better skin but I am not convinced yet that it will stay in my routine for good. Why? Because it doesn't properly remove all my makeup (especially my foundation) in one wash. Usually, I will have to immediately rewash my face with the LRP Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser to ensure that all my makeup is gone. This process will get expensive in the long run; the bottle runs around 22$ CAN. Instead, I now only use the LRP after I have washed off my makeup with the cheaper Neutrogena All-in-one makeup remover (already reviewed).
Where this product is a winner is in the morning. There is no makeup to remove and it works very great to rinse off my night BHA cream and spots of BP. The scent is also very soothing and appreciated. NB the product is fragrance free and irritant oil-free, so I guess its just the natural smell. The Beautypedia review is also how I got to know about this product (although I do disagree with some of the review on there; take some and leave some). Again, this is another product where I find that the MUA reviews aren't really fair. For sensitive and acne prone skins, this is a great cleanser to consider both for the morning and as a *rinser/toner* to remove residue. (PS I don't think there is always makeup residue on skin, especially since that is what a good cleanser is designed to avoid, but sometimes I might miss a spot on my face and I prefer to be preventive then to have skin problems form there).

Before I had started using this cleanser, my face was covered in breakouts, dehydrated underneath as well as with the oilest slick on top. I had been trying to treat my skin with overdrying, alcohol-filled cleansers and toners which were doing nothing but stripping my skin of its natural sebum thus, causing it to overcompensate which led to spots popping up everywhere!
So being fed up, I went down to Boots, browsed the shelves and came up with this cleanser. What attracted me to this product at first was the no-frills appearance of the packaging and also its very small ingredients list. It has a total of 9 ingredients!
This is the sole cleanser I use, once in the morning and twice in the evening when I double cleanse. I wear heavy makeup for work and find that this cleanser is more than capable of cleaning it all off. I have to mention that I do use a separate eye makeup remover and I think this product would only work for very light eye makeup with non-waterproof mascara.
I have been using this for 2-3 weeks now and already my skin has calmed down with the breakouts mostly disappearing. I am currently using Etat Pur's Salicylic Acid active in the evening to clear up any clogged pores but I have only introduced this to my regime within the last week. I can vouch for this simple, non-stripping cleanser being the product that allowed my skin to finally recover.
To use this, I just squeeze a tiny dab into my palm and massage it all over my face and neck, followed by a just-warm flannel to clean off the excess. It does say on the packaging that you can pat this dry and not rinse but I have not tried this method in fear of my skin becoming even more clogged and spotty. This does not leave the "stripped clean" feeling of foaming cleansers, infact some may find the after-effects slightly uncomfortable or perhaps even greasy but trust me, just keep with it and you will soon adjust to the feel of what is your natural moisture barrier.
One gripe I do have with this product is the price. Call me a cheapskate but I do think £11 for 200ml of a no-frills cleanser is verging on slightly expensive. I would without a doubt buy this again, but not before I try seek a cheaper replacement with similar qualities and ingredients. If the search is unfruitful, then I would always know that I have this cleanser to fall back on.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I bought this product as I wanted something gentle and non-foaming to use with my clarisonic (I found foaming cleansers very drying with it despite my skin normally being oily). I use the micellar solution by LRP to remove my makeup first so I don't know how well this would work as a single step cleanser/makeup remover.
With the clarisonic this is brilliant. It is just enough to let it glide over my skin without feeling too much friction and just getting that 'deep clean' feeling everyone wants.
I always rinse the cleanser off afterwards as I hate the feeling of unnecessary stuff on my skin.
It doesn't actually 'do' anything other than clean my skin. My skin just feels normal afterwards (which is what I'm after).

I've been using this product for over four years. It is an excellent cleanser for removal of facial cosmetic products. The lightweight formula has no harsh ingredients, so I love that it is gentle to my skin. It emulsifies and cleans cosmetic products off without irritating my face.My skin is left clean and soft.
I only use this cleanser, to remove facial makeup. It does not contain special ingredients to treat the skin, it simply removes cosmetics, and leaves the skin clean, ready to apply serums and/or moisturizer.
Since I've been using this cleanser, my face has been in the best condition. I rarely have breakouts but other products would irritate and cause redness around my nasal folds and chin. Since I have been using this cleanser, no problems. As a result, I have stuck with it for four years.
The packaging allows me to dispense only what I need. It does not spill out, so no product is wasted. It is not a fancy container, but it is sturdy and holds it shape. It is a milky clear plastic container, so I can see how much is in the container. Unlike jars or containers with large holes to dispense fluid, this dispenser protects the product, no "touching" product that is not going to be used!!!!

I think very highly of the La Roche Posay brand and count several of their products as holy grail staples. This one, unfortunately, didn't make the grade. As a few reviewers have already mentioned, this cleanser doesn't deal too well with some mascaras and eyeshadows (I don't wear much, and never waterproof).
What's even more regrettable is that the product broke me out somewhat after a while, so it is a cleanser I can only use for short term stints. I was torn between a 2 and 3 star rating and have decided on 3 based on the fact that my skin didn't sting after using this and other, less sensitive skin types will probably enjoy this product. I won't repurchase though.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I really like this gentle cleanser. It doesn't remove makeup well though, so I only use it in the morning. I had always used harsher products until I got clued in by my dermatologist that what I should be looking for is non-irritating products. Thus the switch to milky cleansers - at least in the morning. Some days I need a moisturizer after this and some days not. (I think that might depend on whether my shower cooperates in giving me lukewarm water or not ~) This also ranks as 0 (no hazard) in the Cosmetics Database so :) :)

I began using this last year when I had horrible horrible skin due to a very stressful period in my life. I had red bumps all over my face and neck. Not a rash, not pimples just red bumps that wouldn't go away..
I was desperate. My facialist kept recommending me acne products that only got my skin worse and worse.
Enter this one. Together with clay masks each night for 10 consecutive days, a moisturizer from Caudalie and the fluid foundation from Avene, this Toleriane milk helped clear my skin. I used to take my make up off with Toleriane milk and then clear my face with the Phisiological Gel also from LRP.
The combination worked through 3 bottles of each but then I guess my skin got used to them and they just... stopped working. It gave me a horrible rash on my left eyelid and it's supposed to be for intolerant skin...
So I guess it's a good product in some circumstances.
At least for me it worked at first but then it didn't anymore.

Hmm.... Im very skeptical about this product. I gave up cleansing my face with gels etc a year ago and I only now use cleansing milks and lotions like this one. I bought this after i read a rave review on Paula Begoun web site. I like the fact that comes in a huge container with a pump very very practical and economical. I like the fact that apparently this cleanser is very gentle and soft, not harsh at all and fragrance free. Doesn't irritate my skin its easy to find and very reasonably priced . The negative side now ! its fragrance free yes but has a medicinal scent that i dont enjoy at all. Second i think its a bit too gentle, I dont find that removes my make up well enough. I only use it as my morning cleanser when i dont have make up on or I take the bulk of my make off using wipes or a cleansing oil and then i use this to deep clean my skin.I dont mind doing that but i would like to use only one product for my cleansing ritual .My third complain is that it doesnt give you much time to really massage it onto the skin because after only few seconds it seems to be completely absorbed... all gone... and that for me is the real deal breaker . Also with this the use of a washing cloth is a necessity otherwise it leaves on the skin a film . I adore the fact that doesnt irritate my skin but other than that this product is a failure for me

This Toleriane Cleanser has been a winter staple for me for the last four years. I really love this cleanser.
Price and Packaging: I don't think the price is too terrible, it used to be $20USD and now it is 22$ I believe. During the colder months I use this everyday, sometimes twice a day and one bottle will last me during those months. The packaging is simple and sturdy-it's not so thin that you'll squeeze out more product than you need (if that makes sense).
Performance: The texture of this is creamy and soothing. If I ever try a product or am around an environment that is irritating to me, this is the first thing I reach for to comfort my skin.
Years ago I tried the Olay Total Effect "Unscented," within a few minutes my face was stinging and as red as steamed lobster. I immediately smoothed this on and it helped to take the sting away. I still had red cheeks for the rest of the night, but it felt like that moisturizer was at least off my skin.
I personally do not notice a film, (I do with Cetaphils cleanser, for example). My skin is left softer and comforted. But bear in my mind my skin is very sensitive and thinner in some areas. I always use this at the end of a shower to help my face feel less tight.
If my skin is extra dry in the morning, I will smooth this onto my dry skin. Then I will rinse with the company Thermal Spring Water and tissue it off. (Very hard tap water in my house). I only do this when my skin is extra dry that day, not all the time.
As to this being a make-up or sunscreen remover? Make-up, not so much. Once while traveling I found myself in the clutches of an aggressive Chanel SA who put a full face of makeup on me. (I should have said no but I was caught off guard and sort of didn't know what to do, at least I didn't buy anything and had big sunglasses/shades). This was the only cleanser I had and it took me a long time just to get the foundation off, and the eye makeup...ugh, it wasn't going to happen with this cleanser.
Sunscreen? Well, it *seems* like it's taking the sunscreen off, I don't see or feel a leftover film from the sunscreen, and I don't really get breakouts anymore because my skin is very dry at this time of year. -The sunscreen I am currently using is the Vanicream SPF60.
Admittedly I don't use this in the Summer very much, only if my skin is irritated for whatever reason. At night it isn't enough to remove the sweat and grime of the humid Summer days.
Despite this being a seasonal cleanser in my case, I always have it on hand. Currently I am looking to try a new oil cleanser for night, but the Toleriane Cleanser will continue to be a morning cleanser for me. It's a soothing, very gentle cleanser for my skin I don't like to be without.
Thank you for reading xx

I had no intention of buying this product, But I was persuaded to purchase it by a sales assistant in Boots the chemist. My normal (dirt cheap) Boots cleanser for sensitive skin wasn't available at the time. So I bought into the sales pitch that this was a fantastic product that she used herself. (Really????, I mean really...how often do I hear that).
Wow! Do I regret buying into that nonsense? After my first use, I could instantly tell that this cleanser really wasn't cleaning my face. It had trouble removing my moisturiser and sunblock. Additionally, it left a thin film behind on my skin that I mistakenly mis-took for a moisturising effect; which I really didn't like. After I wash my face, I really just want it to feel clean. If I want a moisturiser, I'll use one thank you very much. A closer look at the ingredients revealed that this contains Ethylhexyl Palmitate (a derivative of palm oil) and Propylene Glycol ( a petroleum derivative) Nonetheless, I persevered, buoyed by the sales pitch that this was a great product for dry and sensitive skin. And also because it cost over £20. Three days into continuous use, my face started to show real signs of irritation. Muted redness and darker areas on my forehead and cheeks, and some tiny bumps. I should add, I NEVER break out.
I promptly put this in the back of my bathroom cabinet, never to be used again. I may use it to shine my bathroom tiles. At over £20 it is a tremendously disappointing purchase. In good conscience, I would not recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin. I wouldn't recommend it full-stop, as it fails miserably as a cleanser.

I bought this product after my regular skincare routine wasn't working for me anymore. I have dry skin and I was getting some rough, scaly patches on my face....ughhh. I agree with the posters who said it really isn't for make-up removal, I use another product for that. But this is light and refreshing and my skin has improved 1000% since I started using it. I use it every night before bed and then put on moisturizer. It's hard to tell if this product is the sole reason for my improvement because I changed all the elements of my routine at the same time because I was desperate.

I bought this cleanser while on holiday as needed something creamy as the water was too drying out there for my usual face wash. I found this cleanser to be very gentle, but it doesnt remove makeup overly well unless it is wiped off thoroughly with a cotton pad. It is very moisturising, and doesnt seem to cause any irritation. Overall very good if you dont wear too much makeup and want something gentle and bland to use on your face!
