Love this cleanser for a first cleanse. Reasonably priced and does what it should. No fragrance so safe for sensitive skin. Melts make up easily. Would buy again.

I would be hard pressed to purchase this again. It’s a nice cleanser if you don’t wear much makeup, but I usually do. It doesn’t remove long wearing foundation or waterproof mascara well. I have to...

I love this. It's so gentle, moisturizing, non-stripping, and removes makeup easily. I wasn't impressed with it at first because I was accustomed to the appearance of foaming, bubbling cleansers....

The best cleanser I've ever used. I've been using a double cleansing method for years until I tried this. This one, very inexpensive product is all I need. It comes in a tube and has the...

Very gentle, effective lotion cleanser. It removes both sunscreen and makeup, and leaves neither residue nor a tight feeling. What I especially like about it is that it removes a lot of grits (pore...

I switched to this from CeraVe hydrating cleanser because I noticed the CeraVe wasn't completely removing makeup. They are kind of similar except this one turns into oil after a bit. It's easy for...
