Best all around, gentle yet effective, cleanser!!

I've been buying this cleanser for years. My skin is sometimes oily, dry, pimply, etc. ..it has its good days and it's bad days. I have tried so many cleansers- my dermatologist told me its best to stick with one cleanser because switching can irritate your skin- this cleanser was it! It effectively gets rid of all of the oil, dirt, makeup, & toxins from the day with ease, while being gentle and not ripping your skin of its natural benefits!

A gentle cleanser that lasts forever!

This was my go-to cleanser for YEARS. I have oily, acne-prone skin and although I can't say this product improved my skin, it definitely was gentle enough to remove all of my make-up (even water-proof mascara) without stinging my eyes or irritating my skin. The amount of product that you get in the 16 oz. goes a long way! All you need is a dime-sized amount of the product to wash your entire face. I am currently experimenting with other cleansers but I will keep this on my favorites list for sure!

All In

I was given this product as a gift and was frightened to use it due to skin sensitivity experienced with other cleansers. I finally got brave- AND I LOVE IT!! I was my face (no sting if it gets in eyes) and my body! Smells great. Skin is soft and complexion is clearer- ALL OVER!

MY FAVORITE CLEANSER EVER

I have been using this cleanser for 6-7 years now and I adore it. It's gentle enough to not dry out your skin and as someone who struggled with acne as a teen, once I started using this, my face cleared up beautifully and aside from the stray zit here and there, my complexion has remained clean and clear for years. I wish I could give this 6 stars!

It is the perfect daily facial cleanser. It leaves skin soft and balanced without stripping away all the moisture. The bottle is pretty big so it is a great buy.
