Has not made my acne worse like several cleansers have, so I will keep using it! Does not have any acne-causing ingredients (proof on [link removed]), however the fragrance in it is very irritating, specifically around the eyes. Avoid that area, and it will be a great cleanser!

Removes makeup well but makes face tight and sticky feeling. Yes, I rinse thoroughly and it still leaves this feeling. It hasn't made my acne worse but hasn't improved it either.

My Go-To Cleanser.

Been using this for months. Gentle but effective for acne-prone, oily skin because it has a small amount of natural salicylic acid (from Willow bark extract) in it. It doesn't irritate my dry patches or make my skin feel tight, and I do notice a difference in the oiliness of my T-Zone when I use this compared to other washes that I've tried. I've tried a lot of different washes in the past 6 months but I just keep coming back to this!

Nice Gentle Cleanser but Nothing Special

Pretty much said it all in the title. It's not going to do that much for you...but it's not going to hurt you either. I think I would reccommend this more than any Foam cleansers because it has that non-dryng Cetaphil gel texture we all know and love. It also has a very interesting smell thats truly pleasing. I used this cleanser in tandem with a more acne fighting cleanser & it worked well at the time.

HOTTAKE: Average....but the best of all the average cleansers out there.

Love this cleanser!

I use this as my morning cleanser every day--makes my face feel fresh and clean, definitely doesn't bother my acne, and seems like it may help somewhat with oil control. It's non-irritating and lathers well.

It was really drying for the first few weeks but the my skin got used to it. I'm on my second bottle now and i would say it's a good cleanser but i can be a little harsh.

Solid cleanser for oily skin
Reviewed on February 13, 2015

I have been using this cleanser for a while now and I feel like it's gentle enough to use on skin that's being treated with acne medications, but cleans well, removing makeup, oil, etc. It is sometimes a little drying, but I've only noticed that this winter, so I'm considering adding in the Naturals cream cleanser to the mix until the Spring (maybe in the mornings). As other users have said, I wish it was truly all natural and while I personally like the scent, I would prefer fragrance free products.

Slightly too drying
Reviewed on July 30, 2013

This left my face feeling clean and fresh immediately after washing, but later in the day my face would begin to feel tight even without having put on benzoyl peroxide (I am on the Regimen). I think the drying agent must be the salix alba extract, which I had no idea was a natural form of salicylic acid. I chose this product because it was "natural" (not really all-natural) and didn't have any comedogenic ingredients, and also because I usually like Neutrogena products. But I could easily buy a cleanser that is less drying, smells better (the smell was too fruity for my taste), and lathers better as well.

Really like it

My skin is usually very red and bumpy, and this cleanser completely smoothed it out. My skin is very oily and this cut through all the oil and makeup, and even made parts of my skin dry, which no other product has been able to do. When used with a light moisturizer, this is perfect for my skin.

This product looked attractive for its "natural" qualities. However, it did not feel natural. This product left my face tight, red and irritated which broke me out.
