quick question about a product

Recommended Posts

I have been using the Purpose Gentle Cleanisng Bar but I hate it. After washing my face is very tight and dry. I bought Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser and I was wonder if that works well? Its a liquid; kind of like a lotion. Would that be less tightening?

Here is a list of ingredients commonly used in cosmetics and their ratings for comedogenic/irritating properties. Check the list of ingredients in your cleanser against this, to make sure you're not using something loaded with irritating stuff.

That said, most liquid cleansers will at least be gentler than a bar--bar cleansers are more drying because of the way they're made (most bars are soaps, and have tallow or other drying things to keep them in bar formulation). I personally find that cleansers with sodium lauryl sulfate cause my acne to get worse. But that's because i'm highly sensitive to it.
