I haven't trusted Paula since she recommended Cetaphil cleanser and hydrogen peroxide to treat acne (in her earlier books). Cetaphil has sodium lauryl sulfate, which breaks me out even more and is greasy, and hydrogen peroxide is HORRIBLE on the skin. Gah.

If some of those cleansers don't have SLS in them, they'd be okay. I haven't used any of them, though. Aveda would probably be good, their products tend to have less harsh detergents in them than other products.
