I LOVE this cleanser. I've been having a rough time with cleansers lately. My normal cleanser is the ZIA cleanser which is green. It usually works great for me, but my skin has been feeling a bit dry, probably because it's late fall and I am, sadly, getting older. I've tried at least a dozen others but have not found one I like. The moisturizing cleansers, or the the ones that are "creamy" or "for mature skin" just feel yucky, don't leave my skin feeling clean, and generally cause acne. Of course cleansers for oily skin are OUT and cleansers for normal skin are too drying as well. What's a girl to do? March right into your local beauty supply and ask a lot of questions. After speaking to two associates and asking tons of questions I was finally told that most of the staff at their store use this cleanser. Good enough for me. It is an excellent cleanser, but I still have to remove waterproof eye makeup seperately. It leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry. I have had 0 acne since I started using this. It does not sting my eyes. In fact, I can open my eyes with this cleanser on my eyelids and not feel a thing. It also works as a 5 minute enzyme mask. I tried that but didn't notice much difference in my skin. I really LOVE this cleanser. If you feel you need something a less drying than the cleanser for normal skin, but the cleansers for dry skin are too yucky for you, try this. It is a bit expensive and I would prefer a pump to the flip-top bottle. However, the bottle is large. I think you'll like this.
