Didnt work for me!

I have been using this product for a few years. I always felt like my makeup was taken off since it removes eye makeup. Then I used a cleansing pad after washing my face twice! The cleansing pad had so much left over makeup. I have been suffering from breakouts for the last 2 years and after 3 days of making sure my makeup is removed my face has already cleared up. I would only recommend this product for removing eye makeup and following up with another product.

It's not a makeup remover. Try the without water directions

it's so gentle that I don't feel that it cleanse my face. but it works well with my diy regimen ( while waiting for my order to arrive.) and there's this weird feeling when you just let the gel sit on your hand, like your blood isn't flowing in your hand but maybe it's just me hahaha. it works better than those harsh medicated foamy and very expensive type of cleansers in small bottles so thumbs up!

I suffer from very bad acne and semi oily skin . I have used every kind of face wash Clearasil, Neutrogena, Clean and clear, oxy, and Proactive. Nothing worked it made me brake out even more plus gave my cyst acne as well. My mom told me to try this face wash and I fell in love!!! This is the best wash I have ever used!! It didn't make my acne totally gone but it made it 80% better with use of a cream given to me by my doctor. I will never use any other face wash again!!!

from moderate acne to light

been using this product for two weeks. Its very gentle on my skin and I think my skin looks healthy now. It made my skin oily however it's tolerable. After washing my face using this product, i wait for about 30-45 min to apply a sulfur cream, because i have read on some blog that if your skin is still damp when your apply something, it will be irritated, when it's irritated, more acne will form.

I have sensitive and dry skin that gets irritated easily. I decided to try this cleanser since EVERYONE was raving about it. I don't see why though. It does calm my skin, but doesn't feel...clean. It doesn't remove makeup well and makes me feel like I'm rubbing Vaseline on my face. It does make my skin soft, but it just doesn't clean well enough for me.

Best cleanser ever!

This is definitely a product I will stick with. It works great with my sensitive skin that is super dry and flaky due to BP. It leaves my skin feeling soft and ready for a new dose of BP. It is fragance-free and my skin feels like I just applied lotion after washing my face with this. Loooove this product!

Love this cleanser

I find it funny that this cleanser feels like you're rubbing lotion on your face, yet it doesn't leave a filmy feeling afterwards. This isn't helping my acne, but it's keeping my breakouts at bay as opposed to when I was using harsh cleansers, astringents, etc. (That would normally be ironic, but I know better than that at this point). I still need to add something to my routine to see some acne-clearing results, either Rx or BP from the regimen, but this cleanser is a definite staple.

Perfect gentle cleanser

I love this cleanser. It is so gentle, does exactly what I need it to do. It works better for me than the cleanser. I found that to be drying. This is not at all. It doesn't foam at all, but that doesn't bother me. I'm still able to put it on in a gentle way. It's the perfect cleanser morning and night. Fits into my Regimen: cetaphil cleanser morning and night, Benzoyl Peroxide morning and night, cetaphil cream and aha+ at night, Olay spf 15 or L'oreal sublime sun liquid silk during the day.

In LOVE with this product! Super soothing product :)

I love this product, I wish I had of found this cleanser sooner! It does not strip my face of oils and I can feel my skin does not get irritated after I use it. I would recommend to any of my friends who are not happy with their cleanser they are currently using :)

Fantastic Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
Reviewed on August 26, 2013

I have so much love for this cleanser. My skin's extremely sensitive and has looked so much less irritated since I started using this cleanser instead of some of the harsher acne-treating type cleansers. Feels lovely on the skin, no fragrance or other things that irritate the skin. As some other reviewers have said it doesn't really lather but I don't find this a problem at all because it cleanses nicely if you just apply it as it is. My only criticism is that it's not powerful enough to remove foundation so I have to use cleansing wipes for that before using this cleanser at night.
