I recently broke out with eczema all over my face, ears, neck, chest...you name it. I'm not sure if the cause was chlorine from the pool or bad detergent...anyway I used prescription creams and antibiotics, which I found didn't really work well. 10 days into treatment, though, I saw a big display of Sebamed at Costco. (I had tried their moisturizer when it was BOGOF at CVS). The vendor at Costco gave me a good deal and I walked out with (4) 1-Liter bottles of Sebamed products for $100. The face and body wash, shampoo, and body lotion have all REALLY helped relieve my eczema. I like the multi-use of the products, the lack of fragrance (though the face and body wash does have a bit too much of medicinal smell compared to other Sebamed products), and how clean and comfortable I feel afterwards. The body lotion is creamy enough for the the whole body, but I use it on my face too. While it may be a bit greasy, it settles into the skin pretty quickly. My new favorite product, though, is the shampoo! I get a thorough rinse that seems to last a lot longer than other hair products I've used. I also appreciate finding something that doesn't smell like everything else, you know, the flowers and peaches :) I am now a devoted Sebamed user and will shell out a few hundred dollars a year because the products work!

I have sensitive/combo skin, sometimes breaks out / acne prone during period. This cleanser does a good job cleaning without drying but can still remove excess oil for my t zone area. Does not irritate my skin with daily use. Been using it for 2> months now and still get consistent good results for cleaning. strong smell but doesn't feel harsh on the face at all. Price is very reasonable for the amount you get.

I got a sample of this and I love it! I've used it three times so far and the first time I didn't like it because I used too much product and didn't lather it like it says in the instructions, so it left my face tight and dry, which I think it happened to a lot of people. The trick is to use a penny amount or less and lather it up and once you do that it will work wonders like it did for me! I have used it twice like that and I can already tell how different this product is from others. It leaves my skin so soft and not dry like most cleansers do. I will buy a bottle and update this review after I've gone through a good amount of it, but two uses have made me seen how good this is.

best facial wash ever! this product is my life saviour :D after trials and errors of different products that made my face kinda damaged, sebamed got my skin back to it's normal state. it's a bit pricey for me but it's totally worth it. i looove the smell. i just don't like the packaging, with the 200ml bottle,it's quite hard to control a small amount coming out without spilling it all around xD. and when i take it travelling i always have to wrap it with plastic because it's leaking (i don't know how). well it's not leaking a lot, just a tiny bit.
but overall im thankful i got this face wash, best ever :)

I found out about this product through Costco, they had a table set up with various Sebamed kits to purchase. The soap does a great job of cleansing, however, after as I used it on my face, my chin started breaking out like crazy and started getting extremely flaky/itchy for a whole week! No amount of lotion/moisturizer fixed my chin until I completely stopped using it. I will never use this product on my face as it seems like it's too harsh for very sensitive skin. I also read reviews that though this soap is targeted for sensitive skin, it does contain dye & fragrance.
For now, I'll just use it as body wash & a make-up brush cleaner. It's definitely not going near my face again.

Tried this because I was looking for a soap free product in the market for my keratosis pilaris skin. It was on sale at that time, cost about $30 for the 1L with a 200ml extra small lil bottle in a bundle.
Color's green, smell's strong but it's GENTLE. The smell is the reason why I cant give it 5 stars. Other than that, this soap is amazing. Cleanses really well yet makes your skin soft. For my oily Tzone and dry Uzone skin(face), its a little drying and it does makes my skin feel a bit tight after washing.
Still I would buy this again for the body.

I have been using this product for about 12 years, back before distribution in the US I was purchasing from a distributor in Canada and would pay additional shipping and conversion rates but felt the product was totally worth it. I have very sensitive skin and am diabetic and this product serves me well on both accounts. The lower pH doesn't allow for bacteria growth making this ideal for diabetics. The packaging that is being sold at CVS stores is less than desirable, I prefer the large liter bottles with the bar pump and so far have only been able to get these through mail order. I have recommended this product to numerous people and some have reported that this works better on acne than Proactive.

I bought this because the packaging touted its suitability for sensitive skin. However, I was dismayed to find that it has a strong fragrance which can be irritating. It left my face feeling tight and very dry. I would not repurchase this for my atopic skin.

this cleanser is so gentle and the scent is soft but didn't do much on my skin. I think i won't buy this again

I'm confused as to why this is marketed towards sensitive skin types when it's so heavily fragranced. I bought this to use in conjunction with Epiduo which has been drying my skin out, but this only seemed to make the dryness worse! After just a week's use my face feels flaky, tight and irritated. I also have a few cystic bumps lurking under the surface which only appear when I have an adverse reaction to a new product. It doesn't lather well enough to use as a body cleanser so I guess I'll use it up on my hands.

My sister and I LOVE this product- but we're so upset that we can't find it at Costco anymore! We bought a huge pump bottle of this for only $10 last year but now everywhere we look, the same bottle is being sold for $40. So sad!
Believe it or not, this is my HG shampoo. I know it's supposed to be a body wash but I don't use it for that. I find that it cleanses my hair without stripping it and my hair is soooo shiny after using this. My mom even noticed and asked my why my hair was so shiny- it's because I use this!
My sister uses it as shampoo, face, and body wash and she loves it as well. We have very breakout-prone skin but she says it cleans her skin without drying it out or leaving a residue. I taught her that keeping the skin's pH levels intact can really improve her skin's health and she hasn't had cystic acne like she used to.
I just wish we could find it at Costco at that dirt cheap price again- I'd stock up and buy 10 bottles!

After all these years I have found the perfect facial cleanser...I love this stuff and not only can I use it on my face with great results but I can use it in the shower on my body and I have even used it as bubble bath. Great stuff.

My current HG. My skin is oily but sensitive, prone to hormonal breakouts and congestion, and eczema flareups. This takes care of all my needs. It removes my face makeup and leaves my skin soft and clear. I follow with a toner and moisturizer and I'm set. The smell is strong as others have mentioned but I'm able to tolerate it. It also doesn't have the best packaging. It lathers well and rinses clean. I have been using this for two months and so far no problems. Hopefully it stays that way. For now I'll just enjoy it for what it is.

I do not understand why this is sooo heavily fragranced if it's created for sensitive skin, ph-balanced, created by dermatologists, etc. It has an overwhelming smell that I don't think I could overlook, regardless of what it did to my skin. That said, I didn't even like it as a cleanser. It made my skin rather pink, tight and shiny, which for me means stripping and irritating. So I've only just used it once, but it's going back. I've had better luck with Simple cleansing gel.

PH balanced at 5.5 I believe--this cleanser is fabulous! I have oily skin and this leaves it soft and clean--LOVE IT!! Love the price too :-) The body lotion is nice and very gentles as well.

I am so impressed with this cleanser. I saw it at Costco for under $10 but had never heard of it, so I checked out reviews on MUA and thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm in my late 40's and still have fairly oily skin and occasional breakouts - I feel like I have to baby my skin and be sooo careful about every product I use or else I'll have zits like a teenager! I am so glad I tried this cleanser! It does have a strong smell to it but it does go away pretty quickly, so I took off one lippie for that but as far as doing its job? Hello!!! My skin feels clean, soft, not tight at all and looks the best it has in a long time. I'd been using PanOxyl recently but it is so strong - I may use it in the warmer months when I'm super oily - but right now for cold weather, I am loving Sebamed. I've been using it for less than a week and I swear my pores even look smaller! This is the first time in years I feel like I may just be able to pull off a minimum coverage foundation such as a tinted moisturizer but I'm too chicken to try for now ;-). I say give this cleanser a try if you run across it!

I've struggled with adult acne for 12 years (I'm now 39), but after 6 months with this is my exclusive cleanser, I'm ready to make that past-tense. Truly, I feel like I've tried literally everything out there -- from Proactiv to MD Forte to Shaklee to Cosmedix -- with little to no help. I've had peels and even a laser treatment, and I finally decided (on my own) that my barrier was compromised. I started looking for a cleanser that would maintain my face's ph, which is why this caught my eye. At $13.99 for 32 oz, I was skeptical, but it was worth a shot. Within a week, I noticed a significant difference. My skin felt clean without being stripped. It took my pricier moisturizers better. After moving through the first month with not one break out or cyst, I knew I was onto something. Overall, my face is less red, more hydrated and above all, acne free!

I too bought this at Costco on a whim out of sheer curiosity but I'm glad I did I have oily non sensitive skin and wear a full face of makeup on a regular basis and this stuff does a great job as a no fuss facial cleanser it removes my long wear foundation as well as mascara and does not feel tight or dry. I have gone through the whole liter and plan to repurchase a little off topic I pour it into smaller bottles put one by my sink and one in the shower and you the liter for another body wash ^_^

I have been using this for a year now. I don't use it on my face though.
It deep cleanses my skin without drying it out. I used to have some acne on my shoulders but not any more. I love this shower gel!!
