This has to be the most gentle, kind-to-skin cleanser out there. It's so gentle and harmless but it's so hard to describe that great feeling when you apply it to your skin (you have to try it to...

Saw this on Lisa Eldridge's list of favorite skincare product, and as I trust her judgement, I decided to try this. I really really like this. I use this together with my clarisonic, and the result...

Love this cleanser! I used to use Clinique redness solution cleanser but it didn't seem to take off all my make up and made my skin burn slightly. I haven't had a problem with this at all. It...

Just your average gentle cleanser. I think Cetaphil could easily be a cheaper alternative to this one. I like to use it as a precleanse and it does a very thorough job at taking off my makeup. I...

I use this in the morning, in the winter and when my skin feels a little bit dry and patchy. It does not remove makeup, but gets your face clean. No squeaky clean feeling, but no residue either....

Did not take off my makeup, I couldnt believe how much makeup was on my cottonball after using a toner, it left a residue on my skin as well.

If you have dry skin you MUST try this. The fact that I can leave out one or two daily washes with water in my skincare routine has worked wonders for my dry skin. I realise now that all that water...
