I went to the drugstore to find a face wash and came across this gentle cleansing wash. The price was right, very affordable for drugstore face wash! When i tried it, It definitely was gentle enough for my sensitive, already irritated skin; it didn't break me out which is a definite plus. The texture was very smooth, almost felt like Johnson baby shampoo...interestingly enough this product is actually made from the same company. This product is non-comedogenic, which basically means it will not clog your pores or break u out. I eventually stopped using this product because it didn't do much in terms of removing my makeup, and i wanted a face wash that could not only remove makeup but cleanse as well. I would recommend this product to anyone with sensitive acne prone skin -- since it is so gentle!
My skin has been acting up a lot lately in cystic under the skin blemishes that were hard to treat. The Noxzema blemish pads that I usually use didn't work this time. I was at my wits end. I had no idea what cleanser to use. There were so many in the drugstore and super centers to choose from. I wasn't sure what acne cleanser to try. I decided to pick this up because it's a gentle cleanser, and I'd heard such great reviews. (This has the same ingredients as the Clean & Cleanser sensitive skin cleanser, but I couldn't find that anywhere, so I picked this up.) This is quite pricey, but the container with a pump is nice. This didn't work miracles right away, but it's slowly but surely calming my skin down and helping to clear it up. (I actually switched one night to the Aveeno Clear Complexion bar and woke up with a forehead full of small itchy irritated bumps that I'm still trying to clear up! I immediately went back to this, and it's helping.) This is a nice basic no frills cleanser suitable for all skin types. It's very basic and contains no acne medications. I'm glad that I didn't choose a medicated cleanser because my skin is so sensitive and I didn't want a repeat of the reaction that I got my using Noxzema last fall. I have been using this and the Clean & Clear Persa 10 Gel treatment as needed. My only issue with this is that is can be quite drying. (The area around my nose is prone to getting very dry and developing flakey dry patches. I was prescribed cream for this before.) This cleanser dried out my skin (which helped with oil control), but it really caused the dry patches around my nose to flare up. Moisturize frequently with this. Other than that, this is a really great basic cleanser. I can't compare to Cetaphil because it's been 2 years since I've used their liquid cleanser (I had excellent results with it), but this one is worth trying out and great for sensitive skin. I will continue to be patient and use this.
