I misjudged this cleanser after using a few 1oz samples provided to me at my dermatologist's office. It very well may have been that the samples were outdated, or I simply didn't figure out how to use this product properly, but when I first tried it with samples I was disappointed. The nurses in my dermatologist's office all really like it, and the reviews here are so positive, that I decided to buy the full size and it's like a completely different product (and no, it isn't a reformulation). This is a light textured gel that foams slightly with water. It glides across the skin nicely and did a very good job of dissolving all of my sunscreen without leaving my skin dry or tight. It did what it says on the bottle: left my skin hydrated and refreshed. The only lingering issue I have is that this product is fragranced and although I didn't have any outward signs of irritation, as I have rosacea it still leaves me with concerns about potential latent irritation. That said, it is a rinse off product, so that fragrance issue is of less concern than in a leave on product. For 6 ounces this is an expensive cleanser at $40.00. However, it is convenient for me to get and my skin isn't reacting to it at all negatively and as my skin has been a bit volatile lately I'm going to carry on with it.
