Liquid Crystal Micellic Cleanser by Evolve Organic Beauty

"When I first saw that Herbal Dynamics was coming out with a Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer, I was truly excited! I know about the benefits of Prickly Pear Seed Oil, so the fact that HDB was using it in one of their products, had me ecstatic!!! This cream is richly hydrating, but light enough that I can still apply my makeup over it without a hassle. It actually makes it go on smoother! The ingredients are little powerhouse workers that have definitely made a noticeable impact on the way my skin looks. It’s healthier, younger looking, radiant, smoother, and so much softer than before. I use it morning & night and the fine lines that once wreaked havoc on my face are GONE! The deep wrinkles that I had on my forehead have decreased dramatically and my foundation no longer leaves creases where those lines use to be. My skin tone has evened out and its texture is smoother feeling. I just can’t get enough of the Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer! I give it 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone that’s looking for a product that actually provides spot treatment for aging skin. Another win for Herbal Dynamics Beauty! Less" - herbaldynamicsbeauty.com user

Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil by Tatcha

"I am 27 and have combo skin (but it gets flaky/dehydrated in the winter) that is easily prone to breakouts year round. I wanted to focus more on my skincare after feeling like my current routine wasn't really doing anything other than just cleaning my face. For reference, I stopped BC about 4 months ago and I would still break out on it, and I still break out off of it. After reading tonsss of reviews for this, I decided to purchase the travel size to give it a try... I am SO glad I did. My pores get so much more clean, my skin looks radiant, it has more of an even tone, and it just looks like it has life. It does NOT break me out which I am so happy about. I wont' say this is a cure for acne because I still do breakout or have belmishes here and there but I know it's not a direct correlation to this..it's just my skin (ugh). I do feel like this is helping care for my skin for anti aging and for giving it a wonderful clean glow. Ordered another one so I can keep my travel sized one for actual travel now! Can't wait to see how this does in the winter on my skin too. (At the same time I also purchased the Caudelie essence water which I use daily, the Tata Harper clarifying mask which I've been using weekly, and the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel which I used 3 times but wasn't sure how I felt about it) Side note for acne prone people, I have also used a wide range of face washes from all natural, drug store acne ones, prescription, etc. and I like this ones wayyy more than any other one I've tried. I will follow this cleanser up with a drugstore acne wash on days when my breakouts are a bit more prevalent. Sorry for the long post! I just know this kind of info helps me make decisions :) Less" - Sephora user

UltraCalming Cleanser by Dermalogica

"I'm telling you ladies, this is the best for sensitive skin types since Cetaphil. This product is better though because for me, it treats hormonal acne, stress breakouts, blemishes, redness and inflammation, dryness, and periodic auto immune disease related excess oil. I have an illness that causes a lot of skin problems for me. I used to be a believer in Proactiv until it turned on me in less than a year. It just stopped working, and I realized how much it was drying out my skin, making it more sensitive, and actually causing wrinkles. I'm 27, don't drink, use tobacco, or do any drugs. So, yeah, it really did that to my face :( This hasn't happened with Dermalogica.The Ultra Calming cleanser is so calming, so easy to use, it feels great going on, and is very easily removed. This is great especially for women on the go. Anytime my face is going berzerk, I can count on it making me feel better. I can leave the house feeling, clean, beautiful and confident. I've always had a problem with products either over drying my skin or making it excessively oily. This does not do that.To the girl who said it clogged her cheek pores--you do need to exfoliate or wear a facial masque to clean out your pores every so often. You can't just put product on your face over and over again and not expect it to clog your pores at some point. That's just nature. It doesn't matter how natural it is. It will happen eventually :) Also, don't spray the hydrating mist on your face excessively. Remember, less is more.I know everyone says it, but I really do have the most sensitive skin on the planet. For so long, Cetaphil was the only thing I could use; even that backfired at times. I have so many food allergies, hormonal, etc. issues. I'm just really, really glad that I found Dermalogica. It even helps when I get the once a month cystic acne breakouts during my menstrual cycle. I may have a couple blemishes on my face, but they aren't NEARLY as red so I can cover them up before leaving the house.I really do hope it continues to work for me for many years to come. I'm going to recommend it to all of my friends in the modeling industry as well as in my autoimmune disease support groups.Thanks Dermalogica!!!! « less" - ulta.com user

Refreshing Cleanser by tata harper

"The Boosted Contouring Eye Mask is magical! It was the first Tata product I was introduced to and is the reason I began trying the line. Despite it's name, this is a multitasker. I use it for fine lines and wrinkles all around the eye area (above and below) and the mouth area. It is also a lifesaver on my lips. Dry patch? Apply some Boosted Eye Mask, and it disappears. I have several pots in various places. I keep it in the bathroom, by my bed, next to my laptop, in my car, in my purse - you get the idea. It just feels so good! I had the world's puffiest eyes, complete with dark circles. Nothing worked until now. The Restorative Eye Cream and the Boosted Contouring Eye Mask are my holy grail products for my eyes and mouth. My eyes don't even need concealer anymore. I have also stopped wearing foundation. THAT is an absolute miracle! I just don't want anything on my skin anymore that is not made by Tata. The lines around my lips are improving, too. It even prevents my lip color from bleeding. When I am using my Tata products for my a.m. and p.m. routine, this is always my last step. At night I smooth it on right before applying my Moisturizing Mask. I love to warm it between my fingers to achieve a more easily spreadable product. I love that it actually fills my lines and makes me look younger. It just makes me so happy that then I know it continues to work to reduce my wrinkles. Tata has made me a believer. There is just nothing else for me. Tata Harper is the gold standard of skincare. I love that it is created from start to finish on her farm in Vermont. « less" - tataharperskincare.com user

Purifying Cleanser by tata harper

"I can't tell you the difference this cleanser has made to my "mid life crisis skin", it's gentle enough not to cause irritatation, has great slip to it so that it's perfect for a bit of facial massage, it feels cooling and calming on the skin and smells lovely but it's the results that are most remarkable.Within days my skin looked clearer, I realised I had no additional flare ups and the ones I had were looking less angry, dry patches were better and best of al the oiliness of my skin seemed instantly more controlled. Over time and coupled with a couple of Tata's other cleansers, (they are all wonderful), the results have got better and better. Iwish I could show you a picture but suffice it to say my skin is completely clear, there are no lumps or bumps, or dry patches. Acne type spots have completely cleared up and even at that time each month any sign of a flare up quickly dissipates rather than getting the chance to form a spot of any kind. Oil production is down to normal healthy levels and my skin feels soft, smooth and hydrated.I don't need to reapply my foundation at lunch time, or cover my face in a powder, mainly because my skin looks so good I don't need foundation or powder. A bit of concealer to disguise and dark circles and I'm good to go.Having struggled all my life with temperamental skin, having gone through a terrible time hitting my mid forties and my skin being worse than ever, I'm stunned that just by buying the right cleanser everything is how I want it, even my pores look normal, not visible from the other end of the room!!!It's taken approx 12 weeks to clear my skin up completely and for me to be sure it isn't going to revert back to the way it was, but when it feels so good to use, has noticeable results in just a few days and those results just get better and better, you know it's worth persevering. I think 12 weeks is nothing to get the skin you have always dreamt of having.Right now off to find a Tata product that is as effective on my wrinkles, as although this cleanser is in my opinion a miracle worker, it can't do anything about those!!!!!!!I can't praise Tata's cleansers highly enough, there is one for you whatever your skin needs, having more than one allows me to use the one that suits my skin that day but if I had to buy just one of them this is the one I would try, it's a great all rounder and the one I reach for most often, definitely on those days when I haven't a clue what my skin needed. Now my skin is behaving normally I don't think it matters which I reach for but I've noticed I still reach for this more often than not, so much so I'm on my second bottle.Best of all one pump of this is all you need, so a little goes a long way, my first bottle lasted months not weeks so is fantastic value for money, especially as I no longer need the myriad of other products to try and treat or cover up the different skin imperfections. Less" - tataharperskincare.com user

Special Cleansing Gel by Dermalogica

"I purchased this after this was highly recommended to me by an Esthetician. I have been looking for a gentle cleanser that would not dry out my face and help with my occasional breakouts. I have been using the Special Cleansing Gel for about 6 months and I am extremely happy with this product. I have been trying different cleanser for almost two years before I fell in love with this. My face always feels amazingly clean and soft afterwards. It is great at removing makeup. My Esthetician was right - a little goes a long way. I got the 16.9oz and this will easily last the rest of the year.Dermalogica products have changed my life! Since I started using this cleanser along with the charcoal masque, my skin has never been better! I can't get over, evenly toned, clear and smooth my skin has become since using these products. I have recommended this cleanser to family, friends. « less" - dermalogica.com user

This has come in handy many, many times when I found myself unexpectedly spending a long time out in the sun. No sun burn!" - dermstore user

Gentle Cleansing Bar by cetaphil

"I use Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Lotion, and I like it very much, but sometimes I wanted my face to feel a little "cleaner" - for example, in the summer, when cleaning with a lotion leaves my face feeling a little too oily. A clerk in a drug store recommended the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar instead. The soap works really well, just like the Lotion, in that it doesn't cause my skin to break out or become irritated. The soap also does not leave my face feeling dry or tight. Another benefit is that the lotion tended to clog up in the pump dispenser, and it was hard to clean it out; the bar of soap obviously doesn't have that problem. And even though I keep this soap in the shower, where it gets wet a lot even when not being used, it doesn't get mushy or gooey like some soaps do. Finally, the bar lasts longer than the lotion. Overall, I recommend this soap for dry or sensitive skin. Scent It has no scent. I like this because I know I'm not adding any additional additives or chemicals from perfume to my skin. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - viewpoints.com user

Superfood Cleanser by Youth to the People

"I rarely if ever write reviews because I pass through products so quickly. i jump from cleanser to cleanser, never really finding a “good” one. My oily skin is so finnicky and many cleansers feel like they do NOTHING! I thought at first, this was just meh. It cleaned my skin and made it clear... so what? But that mind set changed when I decided to use a different cleanser and follow my routine of switching up constantly. My skin started getting pimples in the one place I hated: my forehead. My sensitive, acne prone forehead that is already sheltered by my bangs. I couldn’t believe it! My forehead was always so soft and smooth, so when it breaks out i KNOW something is off. At first, I thought that “no, i’m just purging!” but it just got worse... so i pulled this guy out again. Oh man... within ONE USE my skin was calm, less red, and already some of the acne was started to disappear. I couldn’t truly believe some “boring” cleanser without all of the pretty and cutesy frills that I love cleared up and kept my skin smooth. I was astonished by how much my skin actually liked this product! I do enjoy the beauty of products like Drunk Elephant (i use Protini along with this and no joke... glass skin!) but this cleanser is amazing. However I will be honest and say that I do get weekly extractions for black heads since this doesn’t prevent them or help them out much. If you have oily, acne prone skin and feel like you’ve been searching through a sea of “meeehhh” products, TRY THIS! Trust me, it looks like every other cleanser but it honestly makes my skin look like i’m using 1000 products. I’ve never received compliments on my skin until I started using this product. « less" - Sephora user

Botanical Kinetics Exfoliating Creme Cleanser by Aveda

"This absolutely is my favorite facial scrub ever. I had a bit of a hard time finding one that would give me all the benefits but would not irritate my sensitive skin. This one does! I feel this is a highly effective scrub but at the same time it does not strip or irritate my skin. My face is softer, clearer and more radiant. It really helps reduce pore size too! After I had been using this for a while my mom randomly remarked, that I don´t have large pores at all. I had to laugh, but I think it tells a lot about this product.Btw. I feel it really helps the herbal clay mask to work!If you have sensitive skin like me, start by using it once a week. As I said it is highly effective and it is well worth the price! " - aveda.eu user

Dermal Clay Cleanser by Dermalogica

"I have extremely oily skin. I also suffer from congested pores on my nose and chin, my pores are enlarged. I've been using Dermal Clay Cleanser for 3 years, combining it occasionally with MediBac Clearing Wash (when I get blemishes and skin looks "worse than ever"). I am so glad that I gave this product a try 3 years ago. I was hesitating because of the messy white clay that it contains, but after seeing my skin becoming healthier I realized that I knew why those foaming washes never worked for me and made my skin even worse. At least now I know what is the difference between cleanser for extremely oily skin and acneic skin and how different the result can be when product is chosen correctly. I understood that my skin will always be oily and nothing will ever change that! With Dermal Clay Cleanser in combination with other Dermalogica products I learnt how I can maintain my skin healthy. Dermal Clay Cleanser is removing that stubborn sebum away along with dirt, grease and traces of make-up, soothes the skin, clears the surface of the skin, reduces congestions in pores and cools your skin with menthol. I actually, didn't like 2 things about that cleanser - white mess (I learnt to deal with it) and that cooling feeling. The messy part disappeared as soon as I bought Dermalogica brush and sponge clothes. The Brush make application easier (no white clay on your palms) and skin cleansing process much more efficient! Sponge clothes wipes away all the clay from the skin - again no mess in your hands nor in the sink! These 2 things is a must have with Dermal Clay Cleanser!The cooling feeling - I still hate it but I got used to it in 3 years:)I also recommend to use PreCleanse to those who have very oily skin! Its a paradox, but that "oil" takes to the drain all that stubborn grease, sebum, dust and make-up leaving your skin prepared for the cleanser. This combination really works for oily skin! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6396619406639941292-full" data-show="6396619406639941292-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - lookfantastic.com user

Juju Bar by drunk elephant

"I have tried everything when it comes to my skin, every cream and pill from the dermatologist, accutane, every drugstore product, and a good number of high-end products. I've had issues with my skin (face, chest and back) since puberty, mainly acne and oiliness, and now that I'm almost thirty I have some dryness thrown into the mix. This cleansing bar is the only product that has made a noticeable, positive, lasting difference in my skin. I still have blemishes and oiliness but they are drastically reduced. My dry spots are gone, my skin is more balanced, the texture looks so much smoother. My skin is also sensitive and other than my skin feeling a little dry after using this for about the first week I've had no reactions to this product, even with the exfoliating bits. I've been using this bar exclusively morning and night, with no other products except moisturizer on certain areas of the face, so I think I can safely say that this product is super effective, and the benefits don't decrease with time. It's long lasting, and also natural and cruelty free, which is great. I will use this forever, it's really been a miracle product for me! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Nourishing Oil Cleanser by tata harper

"I have never in my life had a cleanser make such a difference in my skin. I have mature, dry skin and am very prone to dehydration. I usually have to layer a ton of skincare no matter what I cleanse with, and even then I'm left feeling dry in a few hours some days. After using this cleanser one time, my skin looked better overall. The crepiness from dehydration was almost totally gone, and my face felt smooth, and there was no tight/dry feeling whatsoever (which is something I've always had no matter what I used to cleanse). Within a week of daily use, I began to notice my fine lines looked softer and there was no more crepiness at all. I am a believer, I never imagined that finding the perfect cleanser would have such a monumental effect on my skincare and my overall complexion. I don't have to layer tons of moisturizer anymore...just my nightly/morning face oil and serum! So, really, in the long run, even though it's pricey I am saving money because I've been able to use much less moisturizer since I started cleansing with this Tata Harper oil! A HUGE win for me...I highly recommend! « less" - Sephora user

The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser by Tatcha

"For the past year or so my skin was going through some major issues. Eliminating product after product in my skin care routine became exhausting. I was sensitive to nearly everything. I have never experienced this issue before so after trying countless skin care routines, I gave up and was about to book an appointment to the dermatologist. I thought maybe I had a fungal or yeast infection of the skin. Ive always had slight rosacea on my cheeks - but for the past year or so my skin was extra red. My forehead was itchy, flaky, textured, covered in clogged pores and overall appeared very dehydrated. I strolled into Sephora hoping to find yet another new face wash to try, when I found this one. I was not expecting much due to the fact that I had tried nearly everything. Washing my face was a dreadful task because everything made my face itch, burn, turn bright red and extremely tight. I went home and used this product for the first time and was amazed. For the first time in about a year, my face wasn't irritated after a wash. My skin had never felt softer and smoother. I continued using this wash for a week when I began seeing extreme improvements in my skin. Overall, my redness had extremely diminished, my rough patches were gone, clogged pores on forehead were clearing up, and my complexion was brighter and softer than ever before. My combo oily skin finally felt refreshed after washing my face. No longer tight, dry and uncomfortable. Keep in mind I use this product along with the Tatcha Water Cream. This has done wonders for my skin. I've truly never been more pleased by a product. If you are experiencing any skin issues, please give this a try. « less" - Sephora user

"I was absolutely blown away with the PUR See No More Deep Pore Cleanser! My experiences with gel cleanser were not good. I have several and they don't seem to get a deep clean. This PUR See No More Deep Pore Cleanser absolutely does. Just a pea size lathers so well and as soon as it touches my skin I feel a breeze feeling. A tingly sensation that doesn't burn. The instructions don't say how long to leave. I have used it in the shower after I apply conditioner to my hair and before I wash it out. Immediately rinse the cleanser and felt the difference on my skin. It was smooth. My skin didn't feel tight or dry. Even my nose are where i suffer from blackhead was smooth and clean. I haven't seen dry patches on my cheeks since using this product. Have used it every day. It really does exfoliate my skin cleaning out every pore.

Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser by Glow Recipe

"Love this new addition to the Glow Recipe family! It is the only balm I have heard so far that is not formulated with Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs), which is commonly used in cosmetics to give it its thick texture, but unfortunately can cause irritation to the skin and eyes. I’ve had really bad experiences with PEGs, breaking out in red rashes across my face, so I was so happy when they launched this. After first use, my face felt silky smooth and thoroughly cleaned with no greasy film or residue and I was confident enough to open my eyes and was pleasantly surprised there was NO burning feeling! The clean and natural scent allows me to enjoy a nice massage session with this balm, the co-founder Christine suggests using it for Gua Sha as well. It is highly recommended to double cleanse with a water based cleanser after, especially if you wore make up or sunscreen. However, my skin is on the drier side and felt like I didn’t even need to double cleanse since it emulsified so well. I have been recommending this to my friends and they purchased it as well! Glow Recipe nailed the formulation for this balm, so so amazed. 10/10" - sephora user

Foaming Facial Cleanser by EltaMD

"My esthetician recommended this as one of the potential cleansers I could add to my skincare routine. I use this after oil cleansing with grapeseed oil, and after double cleansing with both my skin feels very clean but still properly hydrated and nourished. I have not had any irritation with this cleanser, and I like that it does its job without stripping my skin. The foamy texture is not really my thing (I prefer a gel or balm texture), but I can't really complain since it has been contributing to reducing the severity of my acne. The packaging itself can be a bit annoying since the cleanser product gets stuck/dried up at the spout. But other than that, it's been doing great!" - dermstore user

Vegan Milk Cleanser by Milk Makeup

"This is going to sound so bizarre but i love this cleanser the way i use it. It’s got a really rich creamy consistency and i applied it on my dry skin. It immediately went opaque white and soapy. After about a minute i went and emulsified it. Even with all of the oil inside this product, it immediately broke down and washed away to leave a perfectly clean layer of skin. It didn’t feel stripped but one thing to mention is it didn’t feel soft or too moisturized. Either. I have persistently dry skin and the winter months in Chicago can be brutal so having my skin in homeostasis is a really big feat for a cleanser to accomplish. I really, REALLY, appreciate also that there is no overt fragrance. I’m more lenient with wash of products but their lotion is also this way so i anticipate those to be irritation reducing in the long haul. Scents are so sensitizing even if you have normal skin. Devlook g allergies because of a face wash has never been on my agenda. Regardless, i used both products (the moisturizer and cleanser) and i woke up today feeling soft, moisturized, and balanced. I don’t feel deeply moisturized or like i left i layer of grease from my moisturizer and cleanser on my pillow but i feel kind of just... perfectly balanced. As someone into minimizing her everyday skincare routine this feel luxe without being over bearing and it’s something i can see myself reusing in the future! This product and the moisturizer were provided to me free of charge for promotional purposes, but i actually have the full size moisturizer in my cart right now. Guys. This stuff is good. Try it!" - sephora user

Skin Resurfacing Cleanser by Dermalogica

"The synopsis on the back of the bottle says that you could see results in just one use...seriously? Highly doubtful...until I tried it and found it to be true! It only took ONE use for me to see a subtle change in my skin surface! I know that this sounds too good to be true, but I am at a loss for an explanation of this other than saying that this stuff really works! I'm in my 40's and still have adult acne. I'm not talking about a zit here and there. I'm talking about teenage breakout. I've been using the oily skin line for about 1 week to get my breakout under control, and am now following the care with the aging line that my esthetician recommended. This cleanser actually helped my skin to look more evened from the acne marks as well as I awoke with very little oil on my skin like I normally wake up with. Since it seemed to do so much in one use, I was pretty reluctant to use it day and night, so I've opted for once a day only at night. So far, it hasn't dried out my skin and I'm REALLY seeing results after only about 3 days of using this stuff! It's awesome! I can't wait to see how the brightening system will work with this cleanser!" - nordstrom user

Frxxxtion Stick 3-In-1 Exfoliating Cleanser by Tarte

"I accidentally received this product in a package from Tarte when it first came out. I figured I’d give it a try and it’s been a part of my skin routine ever since! Great for cleaning out pores and yet not too rough on the skin. I have super sensitive, dry skin and this surprisingly doesn’t rip apart my skin (unlike other similar charcoal based products). I have used many and all the others actually hurt my skin when I rub them in. I’ll use the scrubber with this sometimes. Sometimes I’ll let it sit on while I’m in the shower. It refreshes my face so well. I really like this a lot and I’m really picky about my skin products. I use this along with the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea - face cleanser in my daily routine. Great combination for my skin! I have super dry skin and throughout the day skin oils up. My pores tend to get clogged with the grime of the day and I use both the frixxion stick and rainforest cleanser to clean out all that junk. I don’t wear makeup most of the time so it’s great when I find something like this to help my bare skin. I do get acne still and this has helped greatly to reduce my acne breakouts. I work in an environment that creates a lot of ‘grime’ in the air so getting all that out is so important and this really helps get the job done right. I say go put this in your cart right now if you relate to anything I just said! Let your skin enjoy being happy! <3 « less" - tartecosmetics.com user

Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel by dr dennis gross

"I got this as a sample in a set of Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels (which I absolutely love) and was a little hesitant to try it. My combination and acne prone skin is really sensitive and I have exclusively used Philosophy Purity for more than 5 years and it has worked great for me. Anything too harsh causes redness, peeling, irritation and even worse breakouts.Since I love Dennis Gross' other products so much I gave it a shot and have since bought a full sized bottle and banished my Purity into the medicine cabinet. This stuff works amazingly. It has no soap in it so it doesn't really foam up and it feels almost gel-ish on your face. I put it in my hands and work it in gentle circles on my face for a couple minutes. It makes my skin sooooo soft and almost plumps my skin up. It also does a lot when my skin decides to break out into tiny bumps and blackheads, almost like a super gentle exfoliant (which Purity just didn't do for me). Could not be happier with this. Also does a pretty good job of removing makeup -- although good luck with Too Faced Better Than Sex, that's not going anywhere without remover ;) « less" - Sephora user

Daily Facial Cleanser by cetaphil

"I have went back and forth on this product in the past and I never understood why. I used to think that the whole reason my face would break out was because I was not using the right cleanser, right toner, moisturizer and acne topical cream but after years of experimenting and puting my face through drying benzoyl peroxide and powerful salicylic acid I found out what everyone should know. All of these prducts where making actually harming my skin and making it worst. Our skin is not meant to be put through all these chemical so I set out on finding the right products to clear my skin and repair it.After I threw out all my bp products and non oil free lotions and cleansers I went through my drawers and found this again. I wanted to use the gentlest products and I believe this is the best for my oily acne-prone skin type.The only products I use now are this cetaphil cleanser, an oil-free moisturizer that contains no acne medication and every once and a blue moon tea tree oil for spot treatment (but I think I can easily stop using this, it's unnecessary now).Other than that the only other thing I do is TRY to drink 8 glasses of water (which I did on the first week of this new cleansing and honestly I believe it one of the most important things). I now know water makes a different on your body so at least drink 6 glasses and you will see skin clearing results in a couple of days. TRUST ME it does make a huge difference.So now my face is clear 95% i have one small pimple on my face because I stopped drinking water for 2 days and ate some greasy chinese food but it is going away alot quickly than it used to before.The water makes my face brighter and my skin also less red from post acne marks, amazing right. And whatever scars I did have they are disappearing.I know this sounds scary to leave all your acne products behind but your skin will thank you for it. The minimal, gentler and more natural you can go the better.Hope this helps. I am only 21 and I feel like saved myself from alot of acne and spending. My skin has never been this clear and I dont have to walk through the acne aisles in the stores anymore, i found this a little embarrassing. Hope this helps you guys « less" - drugstore.com user

Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter by The Body Shop

"This is a n excellent, inexpensive makeup remover that you can take with you anywhere. It works fantastic on everything from foundation to mascara and I like that it's not liquid because there's no chance of spilling it and also because you can be more precise in what you want to remove without liquid dripping down your face. Sometimes I like to take off only my eye makeup to go for a completely different look at night, but I don't want to waste time redoing my face/eyebrows. This cream works perfectly for that. I gently rub it in and remove with a small towel. It leaves my skin soft and really gets every trace of makeup off. When I'm taking off an entire face of makeup, I use a toner right after this cleansing balm and there's never more than a minuscule trace amount of makeup on my cotton pad after toning. If I'm wearing a lot of eye makeup, I'll reach for the waterproof eye/lip remover from this line just so I'm not rubbing to harshly on my eyes (not trying to start premature wrinkles!). Love this product and I know I will use it for years to come...Also, a little goes a long way! « less" - thebodyshop.com user

Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk by andalou naturals

"This cleansing milk gently cleanses my skin with one use. Does not dry my skin out AT ALL. Also does not make my skin feel oily. Closes my pores while brightening and smoothing out my skin. It has a lotion consistency that may seem weird at first, but trust me it feels amazing... this is the best face cleanser I have ever purchased and will be one that I will continue to purchase. A little goes a long way, so one pump is good for one use. The pump is fantastic and just so convenient. I have been using it religiously for about 2 months now and i have about 1/3 of the bottle left, so it is definitely worth the price I paid. It also smells amazing. The apricot scent is light, calming, and delicious :) My skin before using this cleanser was a mixture of everything but now it is just normal & balanced so I would recommend this for all skin types. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Vitacost user

Deep Dive Glycolic Facial Cleanser by Jack Black

"This face wash/mask has done more for me than I could have ever imagined. I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin with enlarged pores (I'm so lucky), and I have always had to decide between gentle cleansers (i.e. Purity by Philosophy) or cleansers that target acne. In lieu of Purity, I have begun to use a cleansing water to remove all my makeup so that I could use a face wash like this one to target my acne and oil production. After the first week of using this day and night -- and I'm reaching week three now -- I achieved results I could not get with Proactiv or Epiduo. Those 2 products would work at first, but then my skin would get extremely dry and red and irritated. This cleanser has improved my acne, tightened my pores, and actually BRIGHTENED my complexion. I used to wake up looking dull and extremely oily because my pores would just open up in my sleep. If I decide to "give my skin a break" in fear of "over-using" this cleanser and opt to use Purity instead, I'll wake up looking like I did before using this product. This is gentle enough to be used twice a day, and when I'm feeling extra gritty from a rough few days, I LOVE using this as a mask once or twice a week. It really tightens my skin without drying it out, and this is the only product that has done that for me. Not to mention, because my pores are more refined and oil-secretion has been kept at bay, my makeup applies more beautifully and I no longer get oily an hour after applying my makeup. If I apply my makeup at 7am, I will only start to become shiny around 1pm, which is a BIG deal for my oily skin. Love, love, love this product! *Remember to wear SPF while using this product because glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant/AHA. :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap by mario badescu

"I have struggled with acne since I was 13 years old and I always felt helpless. The past few years I noticed I was getting bad breakouts on my chest and back and felt so embarrassed to wear anything low or revealing. I tried everything over the counter cream, Salicylic acid pads, medicated washes. Everything either irritated my skin or did not help at all. I have always really like Mario Basascu's products because they are gentle but really effective! I decided to give this one a try for my stubborn body acne and boy did I see a difference immediately! It's been about a week since I have used the product and I swear all the acne is gone and the scars are sooooo much better!! The smell does not bother me at all however I found this is a little drying but nothing a little lightweight moisturizer can't fix!! Seriously buy this if you are struggling with body acne!! It is super gentle and works immediately!!" - ulta user
