I just bought this again after not using for awhile. It doesn't dry my skin and I didn't experience any breakouts so big pluses there but what I realized is that it didn't remove my makeup.

I cleansed with an oil cleanser. Then I used the One Step Cleanser Normal Dry on my Clarisonic finishing with another round of the One Step. My face should have been pristine as this …

I have used 3 samples of this cleanser, so I cannot judge this by it's performance for a longer period, but what I can say is that it is very very drying. I have oily sensitive skin and this cleanser made my seb. derm much worse in only a few days. Normally I like the Paula's Choice cleansers, but this is absolutely not suitable for normal to dry skin as she claims. I also tried the …Read more

Fabulous cleanser. My skin is combination and it gets the makeup off, doesn't feel greasy and doesn't dry out my skin. As I have oily skin in the T-zone and large pores I need to use a grainy scrub a couple of times a week and Paula's Choice 2%BHA which keeps that area smooth and unblocked. For years I've been using Clarins cleansers because I love the foam up feel however …Read more

I have been using Cetaphil for years, but I wanted to try this Paula's Choice product when I heard that it can also be used to remove eye makeup, and that it is more effective at removing makeup from the skin than Cetaphil. I love it! I had been experiencing some dryness, even from the gently, non-foaming Cetaphil, due to the fact that I use Retin-A to keep my acne at bay. No more flaky …Read more

My new HG! I was using the Skin Balancing Cleanser, however, I found it to be a little drying. I saw a review on youtube about this One Step Cleanser for Normal to Dry skin and I took the risk. I even bought the huge 16 oz. bottle. I use this with my Clarisonic and it is perfect! It has a slight lather and it rinses cleanly, plus it doesn't dry out my face. For a product that does not …Read more

PC Cleansers are my HG! They don't strip your skin and leave it dry yet they leave it super clean and take all your make up off. I barely need eye makeup remover anymore.

I've tried three of hers and I actually like the one for Normal to Very Dry better (Skin Recovery Cleanser). The reason is just for consistency. This Skin Recovery Cleanser has a milky texture like …

This stuff is good, but a smidge more than I would pay for a cleanser, when you factor in the shipping and duty. I think it cleaned sufficiently but didn't knock my socks off. It also left my face feeling tight after.......which isnt a huge deal because I load up the moisturizer, but should be noted. I *would* but this again, but probably won't ..unless they have a sale.

Best cleanser ever. After trying some samples of this product, I really wanted to purchase the full bottle, but I still have to use up my Cerave cleanser.

This actually feels like the Cerave cleanser but has better skin nourishing ingredients and takes off all my makeup!!

I love this cleanser because it is very kind and gentle to my combination, sensitive skin. When I first started using Paula's Choice products almost 10 years ago, I used her One Step Cleanser For Normal To Oily/Combination Skin. Since my skin has been changing during my 40's, I no longer can use that since it's too drying now and have switched to this and the Skin Recovery …Read more

I tried a sample and thank goodness it was only a sample. Horrible stuff. Made my skin red and aggravated instantly. Let's just face the facts, my skin can't tolerate Sodium Laureth Sulfate in high concentrations at all. All in all, I just don’t seem to have much luck with most PC products... still experimenting with samples though.
