I love this moisturizer. I used to use foundation, but this has as much coverage as a foundation does. It is quite thick and goes on smooth and gets rid of all the redness on my face. I also love that it has SPF. The first time I bought it, I thought it was quite expensive--$30. But it has lasted me a year so far and there's probably half the bottle left. You really don't need to use much at all to cover your whole face. I have oily skin, but it doesn't make my face too greasy. I really, really love this stuff!

Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Sensitive Skin

I thought I really loved this product for about a year. I have oily/acne-prone skin so I really loved the foaming aspect because it cleaned my skin really well. However, I recently googled "acne detective" which is a website that tells you all the comedogenic and irritating ingredients in products. This cleanser had a lot of those ingredients including sodium laureth sulfate which is pretty much a poison to your skin. I immediately stopped using this product and did some research and I started using a Noxzema cleanser. I rarely ever break out anymore and when I was using this cleanser I was getting at least 3 breakouts a day. I think my skin is just very sensitive to harmful ingredients. So my advice for you is to check the harmful ingredients in products and be aware of what you are putting on your face. I won't buy this product again.

I like this moisturizer. It is light which is good for me because my skin gets oily throughout the day. I like that it has SPF in it. It has not made me break out which other moisturizers have done to my skin in the past. It is a very simple moisturizer, but it gets the job done. If you have very dry skin I wouldn't recommend this because it is very light. I have a few dry patches on my face so I just dab a bit of Nivea Creme on those parts. Overall, I like this product and I would probably buy it again.
I have oily/acne prone skin so this product didn't work the best on my skin. After I washed my face with it, my skin still felt oily and I like to have that fresh, clean feeling. However, I exfoliate a couple times a week so I found that if I exfoliate my face and then wash it with this product after my face feels really clean but also moisturized. I think this is a great product for people with dry skin, but it didn't work the best for me.

I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now and I am loving it. For years I have had pretty bad acne. I was taking antibiotics for 3 months and my skin cleared up pretty nicely but I stopped taking them to see if my face would just clear up on its own. My acne came back just as bad as before. I researched so many products online and came across this one. I love it because of the foaming aspect. It makes my face feel so clean and gets rid of all the oil. I have also started drinking lots of water and eating more healthy so that might also have something to do with it, but my face is slowly clearing up and I don't break out as easily as I did before. Best cleanser I have tried so far. I hope it continues to impress me.
