Dan you've done a great job improving this product. When it first came out it was (to be honest) very poor. You've improved it out of sight. Well done! Very calming and works beautifully with the benzoyl peroxide. Really an amazing product.
6 Reasons I use this cleanser:
1. This stuff cleans without irritating.
2. It doesn't leave my skin feeling very dry (a little dry due to BP use).
3. It doesn't leave a residue on my skin.
4. It removes my (non-waterproof) mascara.
5. I love that it's unscented.
6. It lathers well. I also find I don't need to use two whole pumps to get a good cleansing lather. I use a pea sized amount, which makes it last a long time!
I've been using this cleanser each morning and night for about 3 months. This particular cleanser is not needed to get acne free (the BP treatment gets the credit for that), however, it is one of the better cleansers I have tried.
edit: others have said it's drying. I have an oily complexion and only use a small amount. This may be why I don't find it drying.
I love this cleanser because it's very cheap, non-comedogenic, and does not leave my skin dry or irritated. It was also shipped to me very quickly. A little goes a long way, it lathers up very easily. I probably use less than half a pump to wash my face.
This is a basic cleanser designed to prepare your skin for the absorption of benzoyl peroxide. It contains sodium trideceth sulfate, which is more gentle than the harsh, irritating cleansing agents found in other cleansers. It is completely water soluble, so you don't have to "rub" the cleanser off. It comes off with just water alone. I noticed that the slower you rub your hands together while generating a lather, the better the lather will be, so lather the product slowly and gently in your wet palms. It is liquid, so it achieves a better pH balance. Fragrance free and dye free. It is the best liquid cleanser for use with The Regimen in my opinion. It has no flaws that I can think of.
This cleanser really is gentle on the face. It has no acne fighting ingredients, however it doesn't irritate or dry out my face. One to two pumps of this works into a smooth lather and it cleans my face without being too harsh. Good stuff!
I've been on the regimen for years (3-4) and couldn't be happier. I find the cleanser to be the foundation of good skin health. If you are wary of changing up your skin care routine, start with the cleanser. Don't be put off by its no-frills, unscented quality. This is the real deal! I know many brands peddle micro beads, exfoliating action, tingling sensation, and other magical qualities to make you feel like the cleanser is 'doing' something. Don't slap your face with such harshness! Get it clean and balanced with the low-key, super gentle acne.org cleanser.
