This is my favorite facial cleanser, hands down. I have been using it for over 9 years (I know it was before my daughter was conceived), and I am amazed & relieved that Prescriptives has not discontinued this fantastic product. I use this nightly after using a make-up remover to remove most of the stuff off of my face first. (Before I used foundation on a daily basis, I would wash my face at night with just the All Clean... and that was all I needed.) I have repurchased this many times over the years, and I do agree with previous gals who said that "a little goes a long way" and "a tube lasts forever." You get a ton of product inside, and you only need a small strip of ribbon to get this to lather up and thoroughly wash your face. (This is why I don't mind paying $21 for a tube.) Lasts MUCH longer than the $4- $8 drugstore foaming cleansers that lasted me about a month... and came with a stinging, obnoxious, offensive, cheap fragrance to boot. I've given up on trying to go "cheap" and just primarily use All Clean now.
My only complaint about this product is the packaging, but it's not bad enough for me to stop using the product, because the product INSIDE the package is great! I wish Prescriptives would repackage this in a pump bottle- or just a better tube- because I have had 2 tubes fall apart on me. (Maybe becuz I have handled them for so long?) The first tube ripped at the seam, and product would ooze out from both ends of the tube. I wrote to the company about this, and they sent me a free, full-sized tube for my troubles. Now on my current tube, the top cracked off so I can't close the tube, and it pops off every time I squeeze it to release product! There is still alot of product left inside... so I can't throw it out. Naturally, the receipt is long gone... but I am thinking of bringing this to a random Prescriptives counter and see if they handle this as generously (exchange mine for a new one) as the company did the first time I had a problem with the tube. If things go well, I will come back and update this to let you know how good (or bad) Prescriptives customer service is... :o)
UPDATE 6/9/08: So, I took my broken tube back to a Pres. counter at Nordstroms (thank you, sarahandj!), and it turns out the SA had experience with this sort of problem. We compared it to another cap on the tube, and realized mine wasn't cracked... it just needed to be snapped on a certain way. So she snapped and twisted it on the right way... and voilà, problem solved! Didn't need a new one, afterall... :o)
