Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body by Clinique

"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

Soy Face Cleanser by fresh

"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

Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser by Michael Todd Beauty

"I've been seeing more and more products out there toting charcoal as the new "wonder" ingredient but I "wonder" if it's not just a passing fad. I mean, we use charcoal to grill hamburgers in our barbecues and artists use it for drawing portraits. It is also a main ingredient in aquarium filters to remove impurities from the water. But it is also used to remove toxins from the body and is given to overdose patients and to people who have ingested poison (under a doctor's supervision). Therefore, charcoal must be a pretty hardcore ingredient! And it's now popping up in everything from toothpaste to skin care products to dietary supplements, and even drinks! So when I received the opportunity to test out this Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser in exchange for review, I was very intrigued. The consistency is a thick black gel. You just pump a little in your hands and run it under warm water. It does not contain sulfates, so it does not lather. But it cleans your skin so beautifully without drying. And the best part is how effective it is at removing makeup. You will not have to use a separate makeup remover which saves so much time. It features a gentle, sulfate-free "no tears" formula that does not irritate eyes so you can even take off waterproof mascara without any issues! It has cleared up my blackheads and my skin is looking fantastic. I seriously love this product and I highly recommend it for those of us with oil and acne-prone skin." - ulta 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

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

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

Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel by Clinique

"I bought this set for my partner and I 2 months ago. We are both 25. REVIEW 1: He works in a kitchen (lots of oil and grease in the air), his skin frequently breaks out in larger pimples & blackheads and gets oily enough to be shiny. His skin is like this in Winter as well as Summer, though in Summer the breakouts and shine are worse. The Anti Blemish regime didn't visibly dry out his skin and make it flaky, or dry it out where it looks fine but feels uncomfortable and tight. It really helped get rid of existing blemishes while preventing new ones. He has broken out in a few new pimples due to stress but has not developed any blackheads, which I would say is a good sign that this regime is working. He currently uses this twice a day (once in the morning before work, once when he gets home in the afternoon) but will bump it up to 3 times. Between showering in the afternoon and going to bed at night, his face gets shiny again. We are hoping that cleansing a third time will completely eliminate the pimples. REVIEW 2: I work in an office (dry air conditioned atmosphere), my skin infrequently breaks out in smaller pimples & blackheads and doesn't get oily enough to be shiny. My skin is dryer in Winter (not dry enough to get flaky) and I have less breakouts. In Summer the breakouts are worse but there is still no shine. The AB regime visibly dried out my skin and make it very uncomfortable and flaky. I'm certain this was more to do with the toner rather than the cleanser and moisturiser. In week 2 I started layering another moisturiser on top but my skin was still really dry. In week 3, I bought a trial skincare pack for skin type 2 (dry combination). I had been using the mild liquid facial soap and toner type 2, but found the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion too heavy and have returned to the AB moisturiser. I continued to break out in small pimples while using the milder cleanser, but the toner felt great and didn't dry out my skin like the AB toner did. I have since gone back to the AB cleanser. My current regime is AB cleanser, type 2 toner and AB moisturiser. I have stopped breaking out and my skin is no longer uncomfortably dry and visibly flaky. SUMMARY: If your skin is oily enough to get shiny, use the 3 step Anti Blemish regime. If your skin is dryer in Winter, oiler in Summer, and year-round doesn't get shiny, use step 1 and 3 of the AB regime and use a milder toner. « less" - ProductReview.com.au user

Creamy Cleanser by PCA Skin

"This cleanser is the best I have every used! I have rosacea (subtype 2) which means I get pustules/pimples and this cleanser in combo with some other PCA products makes my skin look almost like I dont even have rosacea! I use this cleanser, hydrating serum, anti redness serum, silk coat balm and I just started their new dual active redness serum! I have tried every line out there (Dermalogica, Rodan and Fields, Obagi, Eminence, Exuviance. etc) without any success and this line has been a miracle for me. Ill never be without my PCA products and THIS CLEANSER!! Hoping soon I can add in some type of retinol for anti aging! " - dermstore user

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

Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse by Erno Laszlo

Since using it, I've noticed that my skin is smoother and doesn't produce as much oil. I do think there is a risk of drying out certain skin types, but I have oily skin and large pores, and I think it's perfect for my skin. The packaging is amazing. The bottle is super cool with the charcoal suspending in the gel. I was given this product for free for testing purposes. " - ernolaszlo.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

Raspberry Clarifying Bar by arcona

"I tried this line after my sister recommended it to me. I've had acne, blackheads and clogged skin my whole life, with nothing really helping it, and I've tried many, many lines to no avail. I've had the most success with Arcona, though it is a little intense - I equate using it on your skin with starting a new, radical diet. Both shock your system, and you go through withdrawals of one kind or another before finally becoming used to it. I saw results within the first week of using this bar (along with the other items in the Problem Skin Kit, which they do not offer here for some reason), and continue to see good results a few months later. They recommend using nothing but their products for the first chunk of time, and again I equate this with a diet - you have to get your skin accustomed to healthy ingredients first, then you can start adding other things back in. My skin, while usually frustratingly oily, has begun getting dry patches, but all I have to do is apply some of my favorite moisturizer to the dry parts and all is well. This bar smells great, yields a good amount of llather without being an actual soap, and rinses off easily and completely. It is gentle, yet effective enough for even my oily, oily skin. The only con i found was that if left in its original container, it starts to disintegrate unless it's completely dry. I followed another reviewer's recommendation and cut it into eighths, and also bought a small plastic soap holder to allow it to drain and dry properly, and because I did so, that first little eighth has lasted me three and a half months! I would recommend this regimen to anyone with problem skin. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-8683656003982443585-full" data-show="-8683656003982443585-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Beauty.com user

Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Monoi Cleansing Balm by palmers

"I had heard of Palmer's before but had never really tried any of their products. The Palmer's brand isn't something I associated with facial skincare but this product has changed my stance on that! The Palmer's Coconut Water Facial moisturizer is quick-absorbing, non-irritating, non-greasy, layers well under make-up, and gives you a refreshingly hydrated and smooth-to-the-touch feel. I've worn this in the morning and at night as the instructions are to apply twice a day however I find that you needn't use it twice to see reap the benefits and notice a difference in your skin. The formula really is light and refreshing although it has many oils and extracts and it has no greasy feel which is surprising but also a huge plus as it is easily compatible for different skin types. The scent is kind of like a sweet cream and coconut mashup but it dies down as it dries. The moisturizer has calmed redness around my nose and cheeks which continues to be reduced even after I remove my makeup and the next day after use. This, however, is not a claim the company makes but it has been my experience with the product so insertion of this effect seems relevant. The product comes in a jar so I wish they would provided a spatula for hygienic purposes. This won't be an issue if you have extra spatulas or generally like using your fingers instead of a spatula. I also really love how natural this moisturizer is, I think super moisturizing and beneficial moisturizers that are natural and don't cost a ton are super hard to come by so this product really is a gem. Overall, I really enjoyed this product and will continue to use it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new moisturizer and/or anyone trying to use more natural, non-irritating, products on their skin.

Time Release Acne Cleanser by murad

"In a nutshell this is what you need to know… My skin before I was 19 had: - a good complexion - more on the oily side -only maybe one pimple on my forehead during that time of the month After I turned 19 my skin became (most likely due to hormonal changes): -Dry -Crazy cluster of breakouts on the center of my cheeks only -Extremely sensitive *Proactive contained benzyl peroxide which was not effective on my acne, burned my skin, and caused terrible peeling. *Natural/Organic products did absolutely nothing * Salicylic Acid proved most effective on my acne however all the products irritated my skin and caused peeling. * I have a terrible habit of popping pimples which left a bunch of dark spots, and discoloration  * I saw an esthetician that had suspected it was due to hormonal changes, and I could’ve developed adult acne. There were no changes in my diet or anything significant. I struggled with this new type of acne for more than a year, and was so close to going to the dermatologist. The acne wasn’t extreme like some may have it, but it still didn’t look good. My confidence was down the toilet, and I just wanted it to get better. I was looking for a product that was paraben free, and when it specified this was for dry/sensitive skin and adult acne it caught my interest. When I found this product I didn’t have much hope but I am so glad I took a chance! I have been using this product for a few months now, and already have repurchased. What I like about this product: - I was pretty happy with the amount of product I got - It does NOT dry out my sensitive/dry skin or leaves that tight feeling - It feels refreshing on my skin, and no obnoxious scent - My acne is now under control! I may get a ONE pimple every now and then but I can live with that. **As an FYI this product doesn’t lather or foam up. It applies like a thick lotion of some sort, HOWEVER it does NOT leave a film when washed off. It actually does make my skin feel nice and clean without it being stripped of moisture.***** I have not had any breakouts on my cheeks since using this product. The only thing I have now is still some discoloration and dark spots from my previous acne. Since I don’t get breakouts like that anymore my complexion has greatly improved and is starting to look like it once did before all this happened. I highly recommend this product, but the reality of the matter is that everyone reacts differently to things. Hope this helps! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Clean It Zero 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm Purifying by banila co

"I was skeptical at first as to what difference double cleansing can make but I'm glad I decided to go through with it. The consistency of the cream is wonderful and gets rid of everything sitting on my face (BB cream, mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow) with little to no effort in scrubbing. It emulsifies easily so I have no worries of residue on my extremely acne prone skin. This is an essential in my routine and I feel guilty (almost dirty) when I'm lazy and skip this step in my night time routine. I've noticed my breakouts have reduced and my face feels clean after I wash (never dry, due to the product leaving your face soft).Although the tub is on the pricey side it does last a long time; I've had mine for a good four months using once a day and I can still go without a replacement for another 2 months or so. I especially like the fact it comes with a spatula, since I hate dipping my fingers in product. « less" - sokoglam.com user

Organics Vitamin C Hydrating Cleansing Milk by avalon

"A few months back I went through a bad bout of acne, both on my face and back. I decided to try this on a whim, and because of the bad breakout and the organic ingredients, it made a worse result, which if I had stuck it out, more than likely would have cleared up. I stopped using it. Last week I went back to it. I have seen better results this time, which I'm very satisfied. I use the vitality serum, this cleanser and the moisturizer (not oil free one cause I am naturally dry.) I do notice that the redness in my face is slowly receding! And when I do get pimples, they're gone within a day rather than staying for a few days. My acne is clearing up steadily and I will be sticking with this product. I do notice that my face seems a bit too dry with this cleanser, I'm going to try the cleansing milk and see if that will remedy that. Over all, definitely give this a try and see how it works. I'm glad I kept all the products for the second time around. It's truly working. :) « less" - walmart.com user

Clearing Skin Wash by Dermalogica

"I've never had major issues with my face [related to acne]. But my face has always been overly-sensitive and dry in areas making it more prone to random breakouts. I had a temperamental t-zone in my teens and early 20's followed by little to no issues in my late 20's to early 30's - during which time I was using a basic gel cleanser and oil free lotion. Suddenly, at the age of 35, I started to experience pore congestion in the t-zone area again. I was off the pill for the first time in years and I was older. Yay. Because my pores were so clogged [mostly on my upper cheeks near my nose, on my nose, and between my eyebrows], I figured I should be looking for a product with Salicylic Acid. Unfortunately though, all of the products I found in the drugstores were meant for teenage acne, nothing mild enough for adults. Of course, out of desperation, I tried several products [with 2% salicylic acid] and the results were terrible. They made my face blotchy, dry, itchy, and even more oily which resulted in more pore irritation and breakouts.Finally, this past fall my friend suggested I check out Dermalogica products. Because I'm a creature of habit, I first tried the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. It didn't make my skin worse, but it didn't make my clogged pores any better either. So then I ordered the Clearing Skin Wash with 0.5% Salicylic Acid. My face looked better immediately. It looked better, it felt better, and here I am a few months later and my skin continues to look amazing. All of the congestion I had is completely gone. I can run my finger over my skin and it's smooth and not covered in tiny bumps anymore. Most days I wash my skin with this cleanser morning and night followed by my usual lotion - I haven't found a Dermalogica moisturizer yet that's light enough for my skin.My only wish is that this product would have more anti-aging ingredients coupled with the Salicylic Acid, but other than that, it's perfect. Please don't ever discontinue this product - I love it! « less" - dermalogica.com user

This has caused no irritation like many other cleansers. I purchased a regime of items, so I can't say for sure how it is on it's very own, but I love the clean hydrated feeling it leaves and pleasant smell. I use this once a day before bed paired with the willow serum, clear skin spot treatment, and probiotic moisturizer, as well as the probiotic mask every other night. In the morning I only use the serum/moisturized because it still feels clean. Would definitely recommend. I only hope my skin doesn't get too used to it. " - buynaturalskincare.com user

Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm by IT Cosmetics

"It is expensive, it would be great if they would do a supersize. Surprised they haven't??I do love it. For a variety of reasons, not relaxant, it is important for me to remove all of my eye make up but for health reasons my eyes are extremely sensitive. Something harsh not only sends them burning, but Scarlett red for hours.A lot of QVC products remove eye make up, but they all left that sexy slept in my liner look or not so sexy raccoon residue. I find the trendy "oil cleansers" leave the raccoon rings, and because they are oily the residue left is super tough to remove. You end up really being rough on the delicate eye skin, lashes and cornea ( Bobbie Brown's oil big offender). Purity, great when I want a calm gentle morning wash, and true enough that make up does come off, but absolutely you get that thin liner of black.I should mention, I have large eyes, long lashes but deep set eyes. I have always played up my eyes and love lots of mascara, layered shadows, primer, concealer, do my brows, line my water line, and enhance my lash line, so there is a lot to remove.The melting balm has never sent my eyes burning or bothered them. I usually take a small amount of balm and rub my lashes between two fingers gently, this takes off the heavy mascara without rubbing it into my undereye skin. Then I take about 1 tablespoon for my face, neck and back of my hands, Clarisonic, washcloth rinse paying attention to the lower lash line and done. No residue, eyes and lashes happy..When I said loving for now...I loved IT mascara when it came out. After my first purchase I placed an auto ship, fine, great...this last auto ship apparently ordering two sets; I noticed that both tubes were dry, chunky, I had trouble putting it on. Obviously they did not last as long as they should have, and there use added to my day, good products should save you time giving you more day to enjoy. The next shipment; one of the caps wasn't even screwed on all the way. I found the lack of product quality to be exactly the same: dry, difficult to apply, chunky, it was very hard to lengthen my lashes, no working time. Again they didn't last as long as they should have. This time I felt that it must be old, past date inventory that IT had gotten rid of on QVC. I didn't catch the 3rd shipment but don't care to test my theory: they are going back. So, if IT and QVC don't get us hooked and then switch the good stuff out for some cheaper less effective look alike, the I do recommend « less" - QVC user

The Cleansing Micellar Water by La Mer

"I wanted to try this cleanser and luckily I received a deluxe sample of this with an order. Well, I am so glad I did. This is wonderful! I use the cleansing gel which I love and then I use the Micellar Water with a cotton ball to remove excess makeup and dirt. It does a wonderful job. My skin actually feels very soft like I used a tonic or the treatment lotion. I use this now in place of the Treatment Lotion. After I use it, I continue with a serum, Concentrate, and/or the Soft Cream. I also wash my face with the Cleansing Gel and then use this right before working out. I like a clean, no cream face for workouts but my skin would feel dry. Now with the Micellar Water, my skin feels soft and fresh during my workouts. Thanks again La Mer and keep sending samples...that's how I have incorporated new products into my routine. I love La Mer and that's all I use! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - La Mer user

Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash by Dermalogica

"*First off, I would like to say that I received this complimentary for testing purposes* I first tried this cleanser when I turned 13. I never had acne or anything but I just used this as a daily cleanser. I only had a travel size version so when I ran out, being only 13, I couldn’t afford to buy the full version. I just got this sent to me and I was so excited to receive it! I have fallen in love with it all over again! I have pretty sensitive skin and this does not irritate it or make it red at all (which has NEVER happened to me with any face product before!). I use it in the morning and before I go to bed. I’ve only been using it two days, but immediately all of my breakouts are gone. I don’t have acne, but I get little pimples here and there in random places. I was so shocked when I woke up to completely clear skin! The button on the top to open is so easy and convenient and this stuff smells amazing! I would recommend this to anyone." - sephora user

Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil by palmers

"I have combination skin, my T zone is super oily while the rest of my face gets unbearably dry. I use creams from my dermatologist because I also have acne prone skin. Every other moisturizer I've used has broken me out or given me a rash but I didn't get either of those with this face oil! It's absolutely wonderful, I've been using it for 2 months now and I'm so glad I bought it. My dry areas stay moisturized, my oily areas surprisingly are less oily, my acne scars have faded much quicker, and I've noticed my acne has calmed down now too. All of that combined has made my skin smooth, radiant, and better than it's ever looked before. Using it with my acne creams, I apply 3 drops of the oil to my face after washing, massage it into my skin, and then apply my acne creams. I find applying the oil after the creams causes the creams to ball up and flake off. I only use it at night as it does a sheen to the face that you probably wouldn't want during day time." - walmart user

Micellar Cleansing Water by Caudalie

"I have combo oily/dry skin frequently sensitive to vitamin c products (make me breakout). Main concerns are dark circles, pores, blackheads, texture and staving off fine lines & wrinkles.This is the best cleansing water I've ever used. I've tried several others, cheap and high end but this is my favorite. I don't use it to remove eye makeup really, but if I miss some it seems to clean up the remains well.My favorite thing about this product is it doesn't leave my skin feeling too day or too oily, and it makes it look like I've freshly washed my face. If you have an oily prone t-zone, are suceptable to black heads and large pores you know what I mean. My pores appear smaller, no sheen but my skin still look hydrated and supple. I have loved most the caudalie products I've tried since first being introduced to them in my early 20s (I'm 31 now) and have searched for years for my personal "holy Grail" products. quite a few I switch seasonally but this is great year round. I was honestly taken aback my the negative reviews but them realized most of them were sensitive or dry skin types- which is why I included all the background. plus, you always want to know if a product is going to help with what your looking for in it! Less" - Sephora user

Facial Cleanser by SkinMedica

"The cleanser is very gentle and yet totally cleans the make-up from my face effortlessly (with no srubbing.) Afterward my face feels smooth and moisturized! You need ONLY a small, SMALL amount (less than the size of a small pea) to do the job. I had a severe allergic reaction to some medication I was taking which casued a VERY BAD break out and within 2 days of using this product along with 2 other SkinMedica products (which I will also highly rate) my face looked 100% better! I love this product and will never use anything else!!!" - dermstore user

The Cleansing Lotion by La Mer

"I am allergic to sodium laurel sulfate which is found in the majority of facial cleansers. Most cleansers without that ingredient don't clean very well but this cleansing lotion does the job. It cleans well, doesn't irritate or make me break out, and when using the tonic afterward gives me clean, clear and fresh skin. This is not a cleanser that will give some the squeaky clean feel of a cleanser that rinses off with water (chlorine) but for those of you with chemically sensitive skin this may be perfect. I highly recommend finishing with the tonic. The two together are a great combo." - Nordstrom user
