No Parabens

I went in store and bought the 8oz bottle. Ive been using it for about 2 and 1/2 months now. It works great with my skincare routine. I use a soft bristle face brush to clean it all off when im done lathering it in. I have oily skin and the cleanser helps with that. I also HAD small, acne bumps on and underneath my skin and it is 90% gone. I also saw another review complaining about the ingredients, but this cleanser doesnt have the parabens in it. Parabens have been clinically and scientifically proven to increase risks of developing cancer. So im actually glad I went with this option. Heres how I incorporated it into my routine: Witch Hazel first to remove dirt and oil Equate Gentle Cleanser Wet face brush to deep clean and exfoliate Pat dry; Salicylic acid pad for the acne Organic Aloe Vera gel for moisturizer (add a drop of oil for nighttime) userMay 6, 2016

A total ringer for Cetaphil ...

This soap free skin cleanser is meant to be comparable to Cetaphil. I found it indistinguishable. It gets your skin really clean and neither dries it out like regular soap, or leaves a residue like moisturizing soap.No worries about break-outs either. Does a better job of unclogging your pores than much harsher cleansers. Good stuff.

Works Great! Other reviews are mind boggling

The other reviews are mind boggling to me. This is a gentle soap, as it states on the label. If it burns your skin, you really do have a serious allergy problem (or perhaps a gaping flesh wound to address) that���s not the fault of the product. I use it only on my face after shaving and feel absolutely zero discomfort or burning whatsoever. None. Skin feels clean and soft and never over dried. “Gross?" Not sure how a liquid soap can be gross, but if it is to you, maybe stick to bar soap. I don't use make up, so I can't speak to that, but again, it's a gentle cleanser and says that right up front, not a makeup remover. So it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't excel at removing makeup or combatting overly oily skin. It's often sold out at my store, so it's a popular product and I almost always have to buy it online.

Wonderful morning cleanser

This is a gentle cleanser, not a makeup remover. It's best used as a morning cleanser or a second step cleanser in the makeup removal process. I find it indeed super gentle, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. It rinses cleaner than the Cetaphil counterpart yet is still not over-drying. Great price and great product. userOctober 22, 2019

Horrible experience!!

If I could give zero stars I would! This product is horrible! I use Cetaphil for years with great skin. Walmart by me was out for over a week and I gave this a try let me tell you I regret it horribly. I first noticed a bad floral scent but decided to wash my face with this product. Only to wake up with my face completely red, swollen, and broken out with cyst like zits! It’s been over a week and my skin is coming back to itself still dry as ever putting cetaphil face moisturizer on every couple hours. I swear I had 1st degree burns and this stripped my skin of bad and good. Splurge the extra couple bucks on Cetaphil! Or drive to another store for Cetaphil!
