This is not a super-hydrating formula. On a scale of 1-5, it is about a 3 in hydration for my oily, sensitive, acne-prone, but dehydrated skin. It lathers very well (if like that quality), removes all my makeup (non-waterproof), and does not irritate my skin or dry it out. No breakouts so far. I left off 1 lippie because it's not very hydrating. Also, of the ingredients, there are Imidazolidinyl Urea, a formaldehyde releaser, citric acid, and SLS. Not sure why they would put these in a "gentle" formula.

Pros:

Hygienic pump dispenser in a plastic bottle
Great value (8oz for around $5)
Removes non-waterproof makeup

Cons:

Contains Imidazolidinyl Urea ( a formaldehyde releaser), SLS, and citric acid

EDIT: I had to come back and comment on the lather of this product. Granted, lather is not necessarily what you want in a sensitive skin formula, but, it is so luxurious, rich, and it feels fabulous on your face.

I am NC 30-35, combination Asian skin prone to hives and milia. I prefer a non foaming cleanser and picked this up by accident. This gel is more drying than Cerave hydrating cleanser and may be the cause of some slight skin irritation. It may work better on someone who has more oily combination skin than I have. I just read the review of lvdrew315 below who recommends adding a bit of moisturizer or jojoba oil to a pump of this before washing, which I might try. I should add, my husband, who has great skin, no issues, likes this (he finds Cerave hydrating too lotionlike and this provides a 'cleaner' feel).

This product doesnt contain any perfume nor colorants which makes it a good deal for sensitive types. However, it does foam up. That's the only reason for low rating. I love Eucerin products, but I prefer non-foaming formulas.

One of my favorite cleansers because it is extremely gentle on even the most sensitive skin. The texture is very lathering and does not have added fragrances that can irritate skin. I use this almost daily to remove my makeup and i am happy so far with the results. It is also fairly inexpensive (around $6.00). It can be purchased in the regular grocery store or at Ulta.

This is a gentle facial cleanser that didn't break me out or cause any allergy to my rosacea skin, which is awesome. Great price, too!

I have had good luck with this affordable drugstore cleanser. It removes makeup well and my face doesn't feel over-stripped after I use it. It's fragrance free, which is a feature I've learned to look for. I like this much better than the Cetaphil cleanser people used to recommend for me.

I have bought this a few times over the years. Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is about $6 for 8 ounces, a good value if you like it.

I have extremely sensitive skin and I'm able to use this without problems, but I realize that everyone is different and what worked for me may not work for everyone with a sensitivity.

Eucerin makes another cleanser called Redness Relief Soothing Cleanser that I actually prefer to this one and some people with inflammation & acne prone skin may like it better. It is formulated for people who have real issues like eczema and rosacea, but it's a few dollars more - $9 for 6.8 ounces instead of $6 for 8 ounces.

I also had good luck with First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. That one is pricey at $20 for 5 ounces, but you can buy small sizes of this from Sephora which are great for sampling the product before committing to a full size.

Eucerin Sensitive Skin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is a great inexpensive option for most people with combination or normal to oily skin. If you don't love it, Eucerin's Redness Relief Soothing Cleanser is very good for sensitive skin that is also combination to oily. Very dry skin may not like any of these choices.

This is a good cleanser for first thing in the morning, but not for the end of the day because it doesn't remove dirt, makeup or impurities from my skin. This is the third step in my cleansing routine (first I use a makeup remover wipe, and then micellar cleansing water). Even after using two pumps of this cleanser on my face, my toner-soaked cotton rounds (4th step) still have a decent amount of makeup on them. I suspect this was the culprit in some recent breakouts.

Wonderful for my acne prone sensitive skin! It does not sting my skin. It cleans my skin nicely without drying it out or clogging my pores or provoking acne. It works pretty good as makeup remover too! I highly recommend this product! The price is also reasonable.

After reading all the great reviews, I went ahead and purchased this cleanser. I want to add that I'm using tretinoin(Retin-A) for acne. For the first week my skin was fine. No signs of irritation or breakouts. Shortly after one week, I developed rash like irritation. Broke in tiny inflamed red bumps all over my face. This was definitely a delayed reaction/hypersensitivity to the product because the inflammation worsened with use *sigh* now back to searching for a perfect cleanser :(
