This is my holy grail first cleanse (I always remove my makeup with Bioderma, then use this, and if I don't use makeup or SPF, go right into this, then second cleanse with a balm or clay cleanser). I have oily/combo extremely dehydrated skin and this does not strip my skin at all, yet removes all of my excess makeup, including all of my eye makeup, like a charm, without stinging or causing any irritation at all. As the name says, it is gentle- extremely gentle, and I love the scent. I could never see myself without this cleanser. There may be ones cheaper but none will truly compare to this one in my eyes. Highly recommend for ALL skin types.
