"I bought this cleanser in my local Ulta after seeing it there several times and waiting to see how others were reviewing and getting along with it. I was very impressed with the ingredients; it is difficult to find a gentle milk cleanser that is truly acne safe! Or really any cleanser for that matter. I have just finished a protocol with Roccoco Botanicals to heal my skin barrier and was looking for something to maintain my clear skin and continue to cleanse effectively without stripping the barrier I had just built back up. The value for money here is incredible, I thought at first it was just too good! I decided to buy it and I am so grateful I did. I do not use any foaming cleansers because I have inflammatory acne prone skin post childbirth. My skin is rather normal with oil control and can tend to be on the dry side at times. This cleanser isn't the most hydrating, but it rinses off like a gel and leaves no residue on my skin. It is a white milky-gel with about a medium viscosity. It is just right really and spreads on the skin really well, damp or dry. I wouldn't recommend for makeup removal, this is a skin cleanser not a remover! I use Bioderma Sensibo H2O to remove makeup and go in with this on dry skin, then add a few drops of water on my fingers after working it in about 30 seconds dry. I use in the morning also and apply it on my dry skin and leave it as a mask for a few minutes in effort to benefit form the niacinamide and ceramides in it, then rinse. It leaves my skin soft but also feeling cleansed, without any squeakyness, dry tightness, or dullness often accompanied by cleansers. I have noticed that this helps maintains my skin barrier well since my skin isn't red or pink after cleansing. I would absolutely recommend this for every skin, especially acne prone since there are no real clogging ingredients in this apart from the Tocopherol which is not only last on the list, but is getting rinsed off. Prefer this over my Glossier Milky Jelly!" - ulta user
"At 61, I used the milder Cerave (non-SA) cleanser for years, often with a Sonicare brush. My skin was pretty good, with occasional breakouts (probably from experimenting with a variety of moisturizers and other treatments). I didn't think I needed the extra exfoliation of the SA products on my face, but decided to try it on my thighs, hips and rear end. The smoothing effect was noticeable almost immediately. I had recently also begun to use a Cerave SA lotion and cream, but the cleanser made the most obvious difference. I expected my skin to feel dry, especially since I was layering SA products. No dry skin on legs, arms or the places I was using the Cerave SA cleanser. It doesn't lather up much, but a little goes a long way. I wouldn't consider it a discount product, but I think it's a good value. It's clear, so it's hard to realize how much I'm pumping out, so there is probably some waste. My fault. I'd prefer a non-pump; a squeeze top would be easier to control. (And sometimes the pumps malfunction.)I also use this on my face (without the brush) every couple of days, probably more in the warm weather and less in the worst of winter. It seems gentler than exfoliating beads or scrubs, which are too harsh for my skin. On other days, I used the regular (non-SA) Cerave cleansing lotion. I expect I'll use the SA cleanser daily in summer, because I have trouble removing the heavy-duty, supposedly waterproof sunscreens I use daily. Overall, I think the skin on my face and body feels surprisingly smooth. I love these products. « less" - drugstore.com user
"I have had perfectly clear skin my whole life with the exception of a couple small patches of blackheads here and there, but in the past year or so, I have been struggling with adult acne. My skin did a complete 180. I tried so many different products. Some of the "best out there" and all I experienced was redness, peeling, and completely dry skin that was literally flaking off. I needed something different. I went to the Macy's in my city's mall and decided to look around. I had never tried any of Clinique's products but what drew me to the Clinique counter was the fact that they seem to focus a lot on skin care, acne solutions, and on healthy skin care routines. The woman helping me was so attentive and really seemed genuine and honest and knowledgeable about what products would work for me and my skin type. She recommended this bar, and the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I have been using both twice a day, every day for 1 month and I am honestly so surprised at the change in my skin. I no longer have this awful cystic acne that I was experiencing before, no more clusters of acne on my cheeks like I had, no more dry skin, no more peeling, no more flaking!I realize that everyones skin is different, but whatever is in this stuff REALLY worked for me. No Joke. I had tried EVERYTHING. I was over spending money on products that only made my skin worse, or just didn't help at all. This was my last try at an acne solution and I could not be more pleased with my results. I recommend this product to anyone and everyone that I know that struggles with acne. Its truly helped me gain my confidence back. I now have smooth clear skin but I do have some hyper pigmentation which is normal after acne. I purchased the Even Better Dark Spot Corrector today and I absolutely can't wait to start seeing results. I now know and trust Clinique products and they've got a lifetime client in me! « less" - Macy's user
"If I could, I'd give 10 stars. STOP HERE because this is the ultimate facial cleanser and the only one you will ever need. This is a must and staple for your daily skin care regimen for any woman who takes skincare seriously. I've tried everything from Cetaphil, Aveeno, philosophy, Murad, a special egg white facial soap from sweden, to shu uemura's cleansing oil.... I'm in the beauty industry and I'm notorious for taking hours reading ingredients of the products that I will put on my face in the store because I have a client who develops and formulates many of these products and she let's me know what's good and what's not.This cleanser has great ingredients and is concentrated so you only need about the size of a dime. It removes all the sweat, dirt, and oil from a busy day. It removes all the eye makeup and foundation I wear as well as those "raccoon eyes" that get left from mascara. It's not formulated to break down waterproof formulas so I suggest using a separate cleanser for that. (most waterproof anything cosmetic- no cleanser fully removes it) This soy cleanser is AMAZING!!!!! It didn't leave my face tight or dry like most foaming cleansers, and it didn't leave it feeling "not clean" like most milky cleansers do... This one is the perfect combo of foamy and creamy and really cleans your face... My skin feels soft and supple and CLEAN! I love the way my face feels after using this. It's a high sticker price but well worth it since a little goes a long way so it lasts a long time, and it's made with really good ingredients and a high concentration of them. It's as gentle as cetaphil but way more effective. I recommend this product to everyone!!! I'm 25 and have combo skin with occasional pimples and it keeps the breakouts at bay while making my skin feel clean and look radiant. TRY THIS!!! YOU WONT REGRET IT! : ) « less" - Sephora user

"The bar soap for Oily Skin transformed my sensitive oily enlarged pores skin!!! I recently re-discovered their bar soap for "Oily Skin" and I have been totally wasting my time on other cleansers. Why did I ever stop using this bar soap? Any way, my skin is oily in the t-zone and I have a few dark spots and few fine lines. I have been using their Clarifying Lotion #3 for around 20 years. Yes, I am honestly saying this and it is true! It's gotten so many bad reviews and so much negative attention for I don't know why! The soap removed my makeup (face & eyes) although I know it may not be recommended for the eyes. My skin felt completely cleansed completely comfortable and not tight or dry or over stripped of moisture. Hard to believe when the soap is for "oily skin" but it's true. The result... my skin is poreless and porcelain like. Very smooth, very conditioned, and not a hint of dirt or makeup was left behind when I used my #3 toner on the cotton round. That's my fave part about toning is I see the result of truly clean skin! If I stop using my toner, I get patches of dryness on my cheeks and the corners of my nose get flaky and full of dead skin. Your foundation will never go on the same after using the toner! I promise :) This is not in my opinion a "line for teens only" since I am 44 years old and it works perfectly for me, I know that's not the case. I have no redness or sensitivity to using this soap or the Clarifying Lotion #3.

"I first tried the Olay Pro-X Exfoliating Cleanser when the sample size came with my Olay Cleansing System. I knew after using it for one day that I would need to purchase a bigger bottle, and I did. It is a soft and creamy gel with just enough exfoliating granules to clean my skin without being too rough. My skin feels cleaner and softer and looks brighter. After using it one time I could feel a difference in my skin. My wrinkles and pores are not as visible and my skin looks and feels clean and bright. I started out using it in the A.M. and the P.M., but now I use it in the morning to prepare my skin for makeup. It is well worth the price for great looking skin. " - walmart.com user
This all-in-1 cleanser effectively removes waterproof makeup, cleanses and refreshes. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin clean and refreshed without over-drying.
"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
"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
First aid beauty skin rescue deep cleanser with red clay is a jewel-red gel cleanser that helps draw out impurities, remove excess oil and unclog pores. After use, the complexion is left feeling deeply cleansed, supple and pure.
"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

"Wow this cleanser is amazing! I've never had acne before, only the occasional break out/pimple when its that time of the month. I turn 24 this year and all of a sudden my skin started to break out under my eye brows and a few days later I got acne on my cheeks.. I didn't change anything in my skincare routine, if anything I thought it was an allergic reaction to food so I took benadryl for 2 nights, it didn't work. Then I used 10% benzoyl peroxide gel for 2 days.. it didn't really do much.. if anything my skin got worse.My last resort was to go see my MD. I looked up so many cleansers/scrubs/etc and this one in particular stood out to me and the reviews r amazing. for $15 why not? I started using it in the morning & right before bed. After just 1 wash, my acne lightened. It did dry out my face the first few times using it but not to a point where my face was stiff/uncomfortable. I used Vitamin C Serum after.I do have oily skin, so hours after using this my face got oily (which is normal) I would say introduce this cleanser to your skin routine slowly.. maybe using it once every other day. I wouldn't recommend this product to people who already have dry skin.. if so just use it once every 2-3 days.This product cleared up my acne in 5 days! I was so happy!!! My skin started to peel 2 days after using it. I now use this product every other day (just to keep the acne away), Im so happy with my purchase :) Less" - Target user
Bareminerals oil obsessed total cleansing oil is an ultra-lightweight oil facial cleanser that glides on to dry skin to dissolve makeup and impurities. Just add a little water to transform into a weightless, milky emulsion that easily rinses away.
"I'm in my early 20's and acne is new to me. I have never really had a problem with my skin before, but once it started, it has been a challenge to keep away. I actually have combination skin with most of my acne on my forehead and occasionally on my chin I breakout. I have tried all the drugstore acne skin washes, Murad Clarifying cleanser, Dermalogica Anti-bac wash as well as the newer Clearing skin wash, DDF Blemish Foaming Cleanser, MD Formulations wash for problem skin, Bioelements Spotless cleanser, Bliss Clog Dissolving Milk, and found all have been extremely drying and didn't really help clear anything up even when used with a regular acne treating regimen. I hate washing my face and having it feel tight after, which is what most of the cleansers have been for me. I like that pHaze 1 for oily/problem skin never left my skin tight after washing especially on the parts of my combination skin that are on the dry side. I also like how it's been helping me keep my breakouts to a minimum. It's amazing how gentle yet effective it has been for me. I am glad to have finally found a great cleanser for acne and combination skin!" - dermstore user
"I love this product! This is a great way to incorporate a toner into your routine without having to think about it. I was surprised at how moisturized it left my skin, normally toners leave my skin dry. I use this after work before I go to the gym in place of facial wipes. It did a good job of removing my face makeup and it feels super refreshing. The citrus scent is really nice. I will definitely continue using after this bottle runs out!

Got rid of some redness, removes makeup.After just a few days of using this product my skin feels so much smoother and looks a lot healthier. In just two washes it reduced the redness where my skin was irritated. It removes all makeup very nicely and moisturizes my skin but doesn't leave it looking oily and shiny.If your skin is sensitive to scents and soaps, this product is great. It cleared up my acne quickly, and it makes me feel so good about my skin that I don't even need foundation anymore :)This is an overall good product. It really has cleared up my skin dramatically. I'm so glad I decided to try this. :]Doesn't dry out skin, gently cleanses and removes dirt/oil/makeup, evens out skins color/texture, scent-free, great for use every single day, and I can buy it at the grocery store next door!Soothing to skin, removes impurities, doesn't dry out skin, makes skin soft.In my opinion, this face wash is even better than the one sold on the DK website. It's more moisturizing, which means less irritation to my skin. I use it with the BP lotion at night and my skin looks great! Since I switched, my blackheads have completely cleared up and I have not had a single pimple (eve though I am smack in the middle of my PMS week).

The Dermo Purifyer cleanser is gentle however it can effectivly eliminate excess sebum, while removing dirt and make up.I have oily/combination skin, my skin is very stressed right now causing me to have breakouts and blemishes. I've been using this cleanser as I wanted a gentle cleanser that would combat my oily skin and cleanse my skin leaving it feeling soft.I have to admit I wasn't a massive fan of the gel-like formula to begin however you apply the cleanser to hands and work into a lather which is a much nicer formula to then apply to the face. I like to work it in circular motions into the skin. I have been concentrating on my problem areas chin, forehead, nose and cheeks.What i've found so far is that this cleasner has left my skin feeling very clean and soft after intial use. after using this for over a week i've found my blemishes have reduced and less oily. It hasn't completly combatted my Oily skin but I didn't expect it to in a week. It's a good cleanser and I would recommend it to someone looking for a clinical and dermatological proven product.

"I was skeptical of using oil to clean my face for a long time and I tried many of the highly rated brands before giving SK-II's Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil a chance because of the steep price but there is absolutely no going back now, trust me I've tried, but there is simply no substitute. This cleanser removes all traces of make up, including waterproof mascara without any harsh rubbing and one bottle with nightly use has lasted me for over 1 year. This product is absolutely worth the investment, you only need 1/2-1 full pump to remove a full face of make up and all traces of sunscreen and trapped dirt, sweat, and oil. Apply to a dry face gently pressing it into the skin and lightly massaging. Next add warm water to your palms and the oil turns into a light foamy emulsion that lifts impurities away without any wrinkle, roughness, or flake causing tugging or rubbing. It rinses clean but softens without any oily residue, it is non-stripping, non-drying, and super satisfying to see everything melt off of my face. I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin and I use this cleansing oil year round with the changing seasons and pollution of New York City. The SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil pairs perfectly with the luxuriously gentle cream to foam SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser as an evening double cleanse method. I change my skin care routine with the seasons but both of SK-II's cleansers have been daily staples that I just can't switch out. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

I've used for the longest time the biore pore strips but goodness am I NEVER buying those types again. This product cleans out my pores like a little vaccuum. It goes on and has the consistency of a mud mask and tries very quickly. A little goes a long way so don't use too much. While washing it off it has a really gently exfoliate. While also not leaving the skin feeling super dry or overworked. A little hard to wash off but that just means more exfoliating time.

"I have used this cleanser for about 10 years. Prior to that I used the amber bar since my teens. It is very gentle on the skin and cleans thoroughly but does not strip the skin, so my skin is left fresh and hydrated after use. I only need a tiny squirt not a full pump and each bottle lasts about 4 to 6 months. I use it with my Pro-X to remove make up. I have used other expensive cleansers such as La Roche Posay, and Clinique but can not justify the price when I have this cleanser that does same job. Because it is so mild I find that it is the perfect accompaniment to any high end moisturizer or serum. It has been part of my staple skincare routine for decades and part of the reason why my 40 something self can easily pass for a 20 something.

"I have been using AO Biome for 5 weeks now and have noticed a big difference in the look and feel of my skin, particularly on my face. I am in my mid-50s and for the past year, had been experiencing extremely dry skin on my face. There wasn't a moisturizer I could find that would combat the dryness without clogging my pores. Since using AO Biome, I no longer use any product other than water on my face (no soap, moisturizers, wrinkle cream, anti-aging products, etc). My face is no longer dry and scaly. My large pores seem to be smaller and my skin is softer! I spritz AO Biome on my entire body in the morning after waking, and then in the evening before bed. Since doing this, I've been able to reduce my showers to one every other day. This is truly amazing because, living in the hot, humid weather of Florida summers, I used to shower up to 3x a day! Here's an example: I had not showered for 2 days, and went to a friend's house to help her put up a bird feeder. I was standing "downwind" of her and out of the blue she commented, "You smell so GOOD!" I am so pleased with AO Biome and would recommend the product to anyone. Less" - motherdirt.com user

"First I want to write a disclaimer that everyone's skin is different, therefore reacts differently to different products. My results may not be your results but I will write of my experience.I have extremely oily and acne prone skin. I've tried dozens and dozens of different cleansers - drugstore, highend, you name it. This cleanser is the only cleanser that I've had promising results with.TO USE: I pump roughly two pumps into the palm of my hand and massage the oil into my face, focusing on problem areas. I rub the oil for a minute or two before adding a touch of warm water. I would NOT recommend using a clarisonic with this cleanser, as it cuts the life of a brush head in half. The oil builds up and it gets pretty yucky and impossible to clean. This is my only gripe with the product because I LOVE my clarisonic as well, but only use it when trying other cleansers. I usually use this cleanser at night so that my skin can heal overnight, and I can use my clarisonic for a deep clean in the morning.The brilliant thing about this cleanser is that it balances my skin so perfectly, I never need a toner. My skin feels perfect and refreshed. I then go on with my skincare regime, but using this cleanser I generally only feel the need to cleanse and moisturize most nights. I moisturize sometimes with the actual argan oil, and the combination wakes me up with a glow and no clogged pores. I don't break out from this cleanser, my skin actually renews itself overnight and my acne scars have faded a bit. (But like I've said before, your skin may react differently to argan oil or the other oils in this cleanser. )I will say that although extremely oily, some products I use to treat my hormonal acne will dry my face out to the point where it does burn to work the oil into my face. I think this oil is great for dry skin, but if your skin dries to the point of peeling or you're looking for a cleanser with moisturizing quality, maybe this isn't for you. This cleanser BALANCES, but does not moisturize nor does it strip the skin (I find that when my moisturizer is delayed when my skin is that dry is the ONLY time I have a problem with this )REMOVING MAKEUP: Please note that this is designed to remove products used over the skin, it is not designed to be used as an eye makeup remover or for lips. It works incredibly well to remove facial makeup when time is spent working the product into the skin. It's unrealistic to expect washing your face in thirty seconds will remove ALL of your makeup, no matter what product you use. I wouldn't say to put this on a cotton pad to use on your eyelashes and remove eyeliner, but it is gentle around the eyes and removes all of my undereye concealer. As for the bad taste, you really aren't supposed to eat your facial cleanser and it's surprising to me how much of a dealbreaker this is! I try as much as possible to avoid my lips and as I've adjusted to using the oil, I haven't had the problem of getting it in my mouth for months. As for the chemical smell, I trust Josie Maran products, they work for me, and I believe they are good for my skin. The smell doesn't bother me, it's similar to a citrusy pinetree sort of smell but I can see where people may say it smells like chemicals. Like I said it doesn't bother me and I don't believe that I'm washing my face with windex, especially with the results I have.Overall, this cleanser is extremely gentle and effective at working WITH my skin -not against it, not to fix a certain problem - but as a general do gooder for the way my skin looks and feels. As always, I do switch my products in and out at times, but nothing comes close to working as well as my Josie Maran.Some other notes: If your skin is DEHYDRATED, as in you don't drink enough water, having nothing to do with oily versus dry skin, this product may tug more on your skin. I've had this problem of the oil feeling heavy only a few times and it's been when I haven't been drinking enough. Remember that drinking enough water (and just taking care of yourself internally and externally!) is... « less" - Sephora user
"My face started breaking out terribly and I realized I needed something a bit stronger than the face wash I was using (Mario Badescu's acne wash). This has done an amazing job of that. I use this at night and it typically gets 90% of my makeup off (mascara is still a pain) and my skin is left feeling super fresh and clean. The only issue I had is that when I would use this at night and in the mornings, my face got extremely dried out, moreso than usual because it was the middle of winter. I now only use this at night or when I need to remove my makeup and something a bit gentler for the mornings." - ulta user
"I am in my early 30's and was doing some research on gentle products for sensitive and dry skin when I came across Simple skin care. I typically NEVER leave reviews but I was certainly compelled to give my two cents on these products after my experience. After learning that your products were sold in CVS, I went ahead and purchased the Water Boost Micellar Cleansing water as well as the micellar makeup wipes and the night cream. I have to say that my skin has NEVER felt so fresh and clean! I have very dry and sensitive skin and these products are an absolute game changer for my skin and my new routine! I use the makeup wipes at night to remove everything from the day and then go over what was missed with the micellar water on a cotton round. my skin feels SO HYDRATED! I will 100% repurchase. Job well done! Please never stop making these products :-)" - walmart user
"This is by far a Holy Grail!!! product for me. It's an amazing cleanser for any skin type, especially with those that have very dry, dry or sensitive skin. Even though I have extremely oily skin, this cleanser does an amazing job at cleaning my face without stripping it of its natural oil. This is important because it keeps my natural oils and makes my skin feel so soft and supple that my skin in turn does not need to produce oil (which if your oily and acne prone like me is a huge plus). Another great thing is the smell, it smells like sunny delight!! Best part is there is no synthetic fragrance added, it all comes from essential oils in the citrus. Anthony is an amazing skin care line because it is formulated without parabens, sulfates etc. This face cleanser, like all other Anthony face cleansers, also doubles up as a mask. I like to leave it on for 5 min then I cleanse my face with it and rinse it off. Your face will thank you! And ladies don't be hesitant to try Anthony because it is a men's skincare brand. The only difference between men and woman skincare is the scent, skin is skin so go ahead and give it a go! « less" - Sephora user

"I've always had acne problems. A few months ago I decided to start using serious acne treatments to try to clear it up. I used Philosophy's "Clear Days Ahead" for about a month, and after seeing poor results switched to Murad, which I was told to stick to for at least 2 months. My skin had never been worse. It was bright red, peeling, itchy and I had deep cystic pimples all over my face, mainly surrounding my jawline. I started canceling social events and making excuses to not leave the house just because I was so embarrassed from my acne. Yesterday I decided I was fed up, so I made an appointment with a dermatologist for next week, and went to Walgreens after work to pick out a new (hopefully less irritating) product. I decided maybe I was over irritating my skin, so I bought the most natural and sensitive product I could find. When I went home and washed my face with this cleanser I couldn't believe how much better my skin felt after ONE wash. Now, 24 hours later, I've washed my face a total of 3 times, and I'd say I've already seen about a 30% reduction in redness, and all of my big stand out inflamed pimples are already much flatter. I never thought I'd fall in love with a cleanser in just 24 hours. I can't wait to see the results after using this product for a week after what it's already done in the past few hours. It's unbelievable. So so so happy to have stumbled upon this product. If you're using harsh chemical cleansers and acne treatments and not seeing results give this a shot!" - walmart user
"Clinique makes quality products that are customizable to many different types of skin (from sensitive, to oily, to combination, etc.) and of course products with this amount of success and customization come at a premium. As frugal as I tend to be, there are some things on which one just can't scrimp -- and effective facial care is surely one of them.Can you wash your face with soap and water and effectively get your makeup off, racoon-eyes and all? Yes. Eventually. You can slather some Intensive Care moisturizer on there while you're at it, too, but at what cost? Dry, damaged skin with clogged pores and/or *gasp* wrinkles? No, thanks, none for me. I'll stick with my Clinque Take The Day Off in the purple bottle. It even takes waterproof mascara off with ease (and without an oily mess)! Follow it up with the face wash in the green tube (or, my preference, the pump bottle) and you're good to go in a matter of minutes. It's not one-stop shopping but the effectiveness of this combo simply can not be beaten.In fact, since I've discovered this particular product line, I won't be going back to any of the "daily facial" or other assorted pad make-up removers. Haven't they always seemed unnecessarily messy and costly? With Clinique Take The Day Off make up remover and face wash combo, it's easy to control just how much of the product that you use, so none goes to waste. Just dab Clinique Take The Day Off onto cotton balls or pads (or toilet paper, in a pinch), don't forget to shake the bottle gently to mix the layers, then hold the wet pad/ball to your eye for a three count before just gently wiping away the day; no pulling, no scrubbing, and therefore no trauma to your skin. You'll feel clean, plain and simple. Just clean, clear, and shining. Two pumps of the face wash is all you need for a luxurious foaming wash; never a greasy or tight feeling. Just clean, clean, clean!Everything from foundation to mascara to liner and lipstick, gone in a flash; no pore-clogging wrinkle-inducing residue.I follow Take The Day Off with the Clinique three-step program (wash, astringent, moisturizer) and feel cleaner than a whistle. While it's not necessary that you use all three steps, the products are chemically designed to work together and enhance one another. This quick (and painless, but perhaps for your wallet) process has helped ward off signs of stress and aging. True, you might pay a little more for Clinique than you would some generic drugstore brands, but the effects will be noteworthy.Consider this our little about-face-frugal-beauty-secret; it's better to pay up front for something that works than multiple times over searching through the many brands that don't! I couldn't recommend this product line more. « less" - viewpoints.com user

"This 3 step system dramatically improved my skin in many ways. I noticed it came in different sets for different skin types so I wanted to make sure I was getting the right one by really analyzing my skin at home. This whole time I thought I had combination skin, but after doing research on how to determine your skin type, I found that I had dry skin. So that's when I decided to try this kit with the #2 clarifying lotion. In 1 week my complexion softened up and by week 3 it was brighter. The moisturizer conditions my face just right and does not leave me oily or shiny. It feels great on and absorbs really well. And I just love the mild facial cleanser. I believe it help balance my skin so that it does counteract the dryness. Going on week 5, I am convinced these are the 3 products I only need and will use going forward. I don't know why I overlooked Clinique all these years while trying other brands. With a little patience, you will see it improve your skin. Before this kit, my skin was lack-luster, shiny on the cheeks (which is why I thought it was combination skin), tight on the forehead, with acne scarring on my cheeks and chin. Now, it transformed into something amazing. Healthy skin I didn't have for a over a decade. And that dewyness Clinique is known for, yes, I have it. It's not oily or shiny, it's just...healthy looking. I even feel confident not wearing makeup because my complexion is naturally healthy looking and amazingly, my acne scarring is fading and I havn't had any breakouts since using this product. Amazing! Thank you Clinique! You have changed my life. P.S. I proceeded to buy full sizes of the #2 Clarifying lotion and mild facial cleanser. This kit includes a full size dramatically different moisturizer and it's a great deal as you are getting the other 2 products free to try. It's worth it. « less" - Sephora user

"So many people rave about the wonders of the Bioderma Cleansing waters and now I can see why!Due to its excellent reviews, I decided to try Bioderma Sebium after my current cleanser had run out. I've always been the person to opt for whatever was best value for money or what was on offer at the time, but after using Bioderma I can safely say I'd be happy to repurchase this product despite it being a little more pricey than the products I'd normally go for.I use the Cleansing Water every night before bed, to remove make up and any dirt or oil from my face (I use a cleansing wash in the shower in the morning). It removes even heavy, stubborn, waterproof eye make-up with ease. It lifts the products from my skin instead of smearing it around like so many other cleansers or make-up wipes.Having combination skin, I opted for the Bioderma Sebium as my skin can become more oily throughout the day, particularly in the summer. Usually, cleansers that are designed for oily skin contain ingredients that leave my skin feeling dry and tight. This product however leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed but without feeling like I've stripped my skin of all things good.Although I'm not acne prone, I did get the occasional breakout around my hairline. Using this product all over my face and into my hairline has reduced the amount of blemishes I get from 1-2 a week to perhaps 1 a month. I also find that my t-zone doesn't get as oily throughout the day, meaning I don't have to worry about reapplying powder to avoid shininess.I'd definitely recommend Bioderma to anybody, as their range has a formula to treat all skin types. « less" - Escentual user
