This cleanser is AMAZING! It is the ONLY cleanser I will use in the shower in the morning before applying my makeup! This cleanser is absolutely perfect for people with combination, oily, or acne-prone skin (all of which I have.) It also is perfectly formulated for extremely sensitive skin (which I also have.) It helps lessen the amount of oil that my face creates throughout the day and helps my makeup stay beautiful and flawless all day. This may sound intimidating if you don't have super oily skin, but it does actually allow your skin to retain moisture without getting greasy. The product works even better when used with the Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 protection. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone looking for a life changing cleanser! ...read more

THIS is my most FAVORITE favorite favorite favorite face wash ever! I just recently ran out and I've been itching to go buy MORE! I love this facial cleanser with all of my heart! No wash has ever beat this one! Bioré really changed the game with this one. The charcoal works as a magnet to draw out dirt and icky things in your pores, as well as leaving your face feeling tingly (in a good way) and fresh. The feeling that this face wash gives me is certainly unbeatable. This product has made my breakouts stop all together and I have never been happier with my skin. It leaves my skin looking healthier, which no other product has done for me. Seriously GET THIS PRODUCT!!! This will forever change your skin and the way you view Bioré products, guaranteed! HIGHLY recommend this! ...read more

This face mask is wonderful. I use it about 2 times a week. I use it two ways, either by following the instructions for use on the back, which is wearing it as a mask for 15 minutes, then rubbing it in with some warm water for a full 2 minutes, then washing off. Or I use a little bit in the shower as just a face wash, where instead of letting it sit for 15 minutes, I just scrub my face with it for 2 minutes and rinse off (which I feel works just a swell because the hot, steamy water opens up my pores). After only a few uses, my pores appear smaller and my skin is SO SMOOTH. It removes ALL the dead, dry & flaky skin from my face and my skin looks & feels brighter. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all. If you have sensitive skin and are worried about that when looking to buy this, I would say it's worth a try. I purchased this because I often use the avocado mask they make, and that's great for rejuvenating my skin but not for reducing/cleaning out my pores. I love this mask and definitely plan to buy more when I run out. And the price is fantastic in my opinion.
***The one negative comment I have about this product is that it can be hard to apply, because as soon as I rub it on, it starts to clump in one spot, or I try to smooth it out, and it wipes away from the spot I'm trying to cover, which results in me using more of the product to get my face covered. I will probably end up buying this more often than other face masks because I have to use more of it at a time. Once you get used to applying however, it does get easier. ...read more

This is the BEST make-up remover/facial cleanser I have EVER used in my life!!! It has a very creamy oil like texture and when I first washed my face with this product I couldn't believe how easily it remover my eye makeup without any burning of the eyes! I was so smooth on my face and took ALL of my dark makeup right of the first time unlike other makeup cleansers i have tried and when i got out of the shower i would still have black under my eyes! With this Ponds product NOTHING was left behind and I didn't even have to put a moisturizer on afterwards because the Ponds cold cream was already very moisturizes by its self! I have acne prone skin and was worried the oil feel to it would break my skin out even more but it done the total opposite, my face cleared up in only two days of using this cream cleanser! I REALLLLLYYYYY love this product and now i am a loyal buyer from now on!! I look forward to using this on my face! ...read more

Easiest thing in the world. Especially convenient after a night out or at the end of a long day when I'm too lazy for my usual full nighttime routine.

I even keep a small bottle in my overnight bag for friend/boyfriend sleepovers.

Removes even the most stubborn makeup with ease while also leaving my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I follow with moisturizer and then I'm good to go (to bed 😴). ...read more

This toner is great for after washing your face. It helps get out any impurities left behind, by just applying it to a cotton pad and swiping it across your skin. It's gentle, moisturizing, which is good since it's a toner and most toners dry your skin out. It's also got added goodness for your skin so it's really a great addition to your skincare routine. ...read more

A+++ Physician's Formula. This argan oil is superb. First of all, the packaging is perfect. That's always my biggest peeve with oils, the packaging getting all messy. This has a perfect dropper and the inside of the bottle has a piece that cleans the excess off the outside of the dropper tube as you pull it out of the bottle so oil doesn't get EVERYWHERE! Very well thought out. The product itself is above par for this category as well. It's smooth, light in texture, not a strong scent, and doesn't irritate the skin. I use this at night on my normal to oily skin and wake up to smooth, supple, glowing skin. I also use this on clients with dry skin by mixing it with their foundation. It is absolutely perfect for this technique and anyone with dry skin should try it. If you have a fuller coverage foundation that your skin just isn't liking right now, if it's grabbing onto dry patches, mix a drop or two of this oil in with the foundation and it will glide effortlessly over the skin while still giving good coverage. If you're questioning the price go for it. You'll love it. Plus, most drugstores have Physicians Formula on sale as some point or you get a decent amount of points in their rewards program. ...read more

Best moisturizer hands down. I have very dry skin and was constantly looking for a new and better moisturizer. I kept trying 60-100 dollar fancy moisturizers that promised hydrated refreshed skin but none ever really held my attention. When I was prescribed topical acne medicine they recommended this to apply beforehand to counteract the drying effect of my new medicine and it has worked amazingly. At first I was underwhelmed given the price ( I like many others thought subconsciously that the more you pay the better the product) and the packaging but I noticed a huge difference after 2 weeks. My skin was hydrated and plump but also soft. When I stopped using it during travel my skin became texturized in the worst way possible. From now on I will never be without it and you cant beat the price. If you have more oily skin and don't want the highly thick consistency that the cream offers they also do a moisturizing lotion which comes in a bottle with a pump, something the cream lacks as it is in a jar.
Also if you are worried about contamination given the open jar form of the cream I recommend buying the smaller ones so you can go through it faster and theres less time for bacteria to build up though Ive had no problems with this before.
It also works well for a body lotion given the price point and the highly moisturizing effect. ...read more

Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel-cream for the eyes is wonderful! It really does give the skin around your eyes a smoother appearance as it hydrates. I am amazed as to how fast it absorbs into the skin and makes your skin feel so refreshed. When dotting around my eyes, I experienced a cooling sensation. It even seems to help with a bit of the puffiness around my eye. It is Dermatologist recommended and that means a lot to me because I suffer from severe allergies. I have to be careful when it comes to certain kinds of creams and makeup. This gel-cream is fragrance-free and free of dyes. Those are also big pluses when you suffer from severe allergies. My skin is more on the dry side. This gel-cream is oil free...so if you have oily skin, this would be perfect for you! Another great plus about this gel-cream is that it seems to work all day so you don't need to reapply. ...read more
