Life-changing for my 13 YO daughter

My daughter recently turned 13, and along with the birthday candles came an intense breakout of cystic acne. Happy Birthday! We promptly visited the dermatologist - twice - and received two different prescriptions and a series of hyper-ventilation-worth bills. Neither Rx worked and her condition was worsening by the day. I gave it some thought and then hip-checked my husband in the bathroom and stole this cleanser and the toner. I had my daughter use them. The first two days her face was bright red - not painful, just red. Then it settled down. She faithfully used the cleanser (2x/day) and toner (1x/day). A week later, I looked at her and realized her face was CLEAR. Alas, she has a few small scar areas that I'm hoping clear up on her forehead. However, her face is clear as a bell, has a lovely radiance, and looks healthy and happy. We just visited the Aveda store to purchase some refills and add the sunscreen. Superb service and advice (as always) and I even bought my husband some refills (this line has worked wonders for his adult breakouts). Highly recommended product for young and old alike. I love that this product not only works but is an effective, healthy alternative for a growing body.

Not a substitute for a makeup remover; AMAZING gentle

I use this as a second step after I remove my makeup (using another tolerant creme makeup remover). It really cleans up anything left behind and leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean and radiant. I am very sensitive and dry (very dry in winter), and this is so gentle and rich I don't need to run for the moisturizer immediately following rinsing. Probably my favorite cleanser over everything I've tried, I always come back to this staple!

Lovely Cleanser

Now that I am over 40 and have "mature" (aka dry!) skin, I use this Creme Cleanser every morning and night (At night I use it for my first cleanse and follow with one pump of Outer Peace Foaming Cleanser.) This product is great at removing makeup and gently cleanses, leaving my skin feeling bright and smooth and not at all tight or dry. It has a nice scent. It is a creme cleanser so it does not foam up. I use 2 pumps and smooth it over my face, and add a little bit of water to emulsify, then rinse off and pat dry.

Made my make-up run

I asked two different ladies at two different salons about this product and both of them were not supporters of this product. However, because my skin is dry in the winter, I bought the sample-size anyway. This product might be helpful for someone with extremely dry skin, but if you don't have extremely dry skin, I do not recommend this product. I'm not a fan of lotion cleansers, but this one didn't feel all that bad. However, I felt like my skin was getting too much oil into it with this cleanser. My dryness cleared up, but my break-outs continued. The number one reason why I wouldn't recommend this product is because it makes your make-up run. Just when you think you've gotten all of your eye make up off, more runs off your eyes and onto your eye lids or eye pads. During the day, the oils are still around your eyes and in your eyelashes, so your mascara smears. I hope others have a better experience with this product than I did. Less

Nothing compares

I've looked around for other skin care products, but I've never found anything that compares to the Botanical skin care line from Aveda. My skin is transformed by using it - literally. I use the cream cleanser, exfoliant, and moisturizer daily. It's a bit expensive, but I compare the money spent on these products that I know work to the money I waste on trying new products, and the choice is clear. I didn't use Aveda for a couple years, trying to save money, but I got fed up with the blotchiness, the acne breakouts and the dryness. When I started using Aveda again, my skin detoxified - for a few days it was rough and dry as old, damaged skin cells sloughed off and the new smooth young skin emerged. I am so happy to have my face back!!!
