New holy grail cleanser! They reformulated the formula and now it's perfect!
I don't look for anything fancy when looking for cleaners since you just rinse it right off your face anyway. I just need something that doesn't have harsh ingredients, fragrance free, and doesn't dry my skin or irritate my skin while still makes me feel clean and can get makeup off if need be. This fits the bill! It's cheap and makes my skin feel lovely and soft without that tight feeling after which I heard is not good for you. The only con is that the packaging drives me nuts! The lid will sometimes not close all the way and you get product everywhere or it'll close so tight it puts up a fight when you try and open it.
But other than that I will be repurchasing 100% :)

I bought this while on a trip because I forgot my facewash...I really like this for my normal/acne-prone skin. It's not drying and I felt that it did a decent job removing makeup, and felt soothing and cushiony. My face didn't feel tight afterwards, and I liked that it was gentle and fragrance-free.

I am satisfied with this. I needed a change from my usual neutrogena oil free acne wash which was drying out my skin. This gets the job done without overdrying or agitating my sensitive skin. I like it. The price is nice too.

Tried the simple products a few times now, but they make my skin feel worse after a few uses. This cleanser started off ok, but then started to dry my face out, I have normal skin! (If there is such a thing as normal) but this gave me dry patches

I have dry skin, so I look for cleansers specifically targeted for dry skin. I saw this, and the price was very reasonable, so I bought it.
The product does not have any noticeable fragrance. It cleansed my skin very well, as in it did remove every trace of makeup from my face, but it left me with that very tight, taut, dry feeling. After rinsing, as soon as the water started to evaporate from my skin, that tight feeling set in. I have experienced this from other cleansers too. So on a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least and 10 being the most), this would be about a 5 on how tight/taut it leaves me feeling. It did not sting, burn, or irritate my skin in any way. It did not cause any excessive physical dryness, that I noticed. I do like to pat my skin dry just a tad, leaving it just a bit wet when I apply and pat in my moisturizer. But, I just can't tolerate that tight feeling from cleaners. I can use a dab of this mixed in with my CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. Sometimes, when I've used a long-wearing foundation formula, I feel like I need a bit tougher cleanser, so I can use it that way without any problems. So I've mainly dedicated this to cleanse my makeup brushes and sponges.

So, the bottom line is this, it's a very affordable cleanser that does cleanse well, doesn't irritate the skin, but leaves me with a very tight feeling before I moisturize.
I don't think that I would repurchase, unless I need something cheap and effective for cleaning my makeup brushes and sponges.

**Note** Make sure the plastic lid actually closes well! If you don't, product will leak and pool inside of the lid.

It is just ok. It really burns if it gets into your eyes, but this is the case with a lot of facial cleansers. It is not too expensive but I don't like it as much as Purpose

My skin is sensitive and oily/dehydrated. It's so dehydrated that it produces more oil on my face than Crisco companies make. I know that's an exaggeration, but it's not fun living with such oily and sensitive skin.

Anyway, I am not going to lie, I've been using this for 2 years. I haven't posted a review on it because I was scared I'd jinx myself and then return to my horrible acne days (because I just got it cleared up from using the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation back in September).
Overall, I really like this. It's so gentle on my skin and it does moisturize my skin a little bit.
There's no scent, which I like, and it's just pretty much a clear/white soap and it lathers nicely on the skin. This helped clear my skin from the FIRST round of awful, awful breakouts before the ELDW, and I've used other products to clear my acne for the ELDW breakouts, but I always go back to this. My skin likes it. It's nice and gentle and soothing and SIMPLE (lol see what I did there?). No frills. It is what it is. I don't expect it to perform miracles like get rid of my premature wrinkles or bring back the dead or anything like that.
It's nice. I like it. Will repurchase.

First of all I hate the packaging. There is always a little pool of soap on the inside of the cover. The word Simple is perfect for it. It's a simple face wash. But, I didn't find it moisturizing at all. There is no scent to it. It's just a no frill, simple type of facewash so if that's what you're looking for then you might like it.

I don't think this is especially moisturizing. It is a fragrance free. That said, it contains sodium laureth sulfate, propylene glycol, sodium chloride, potassium sorbate, disodium EDTA, sodium benzoate, and other not so simple ingredients. It made my skin tight, and even though I am pushing 60, I still get breakouts and clogged pores. It does clean well. It burns like crazy if you get it near your eyes.

Possibly the most annoying aspect is that once opened, you really cannot store the tube upside down on its flat cap, the way you are supposed to, because the tube leaks and product drips down the shower walls.

Update: What I thought was a leaking cap was actually a split at the bottom seam of the tube. I lost most of the product, and in the process learned that it dissolves latex paint. I am not sure of the significance of this in terms of it being good for your skin, and I will leave that up to the chemistry majors.
