I have struggled for years to find a face wash that works for extra sensitive skin. I feel like I was taught as a teenage, that for whatever skin type, you must use a SUPER harsh cleanser twice daily. However, now that I'm older, I have learned. Not all skin types are the same. I use this one daily because it has the best moisturizers out on the market. Yes, it is expensive, but you get a lot for your money. It is so gentle and I see results already. It does not have a tingly "feeling" when you put it on your skin, which I like. It does not have fragrance, which would irritate your skin. I use it in the morning and at night. It does not leave behind a residue of any sort.

I love the packaging - pumps are the bomb! It is in a white container, so that ingredients that are light sensitive are not denatured.

Overall, I will be buying this product for years to come.

I have fair, dry, sensitive, skin and use a Cerave moisturizer also.

I swear by this product. I have combination skin, which is prone to breakouts if I am stressed or do not take care of my skin (sleep with makeup on, don't wash my face after a workout, etc.). My skin isn't too oily or too dry. I started using this scrub after my dermatologist recommended that I stop using products with salicylic acid or are labeled "acne control", since it dried out my skin and made it prone to irritation. This scrub doesn't have parabens or salicylic acid, and has 100% natural exfoliants. I use this scrub every day in the morning as my face wash, and moisturize afterwards. I would recommend it for people who are looking for a face wash without "acne controlling" ingredients, or who are looking for a more natural cleaner. It is clearly an exfoliant, though, so if your skin would be irritated by regular scrubbing.

I have tried so many other face washes (Clean and Clear, St. Ives, Neutrogena, Clearasil) and none compare to good ol' Cetaphil. I am a 26 year-old with an extremely fair skin tone and my skin tends to get irritated if I'm not careful. I have slight rosacea on my cheeks and combination skin, meaning my cheeks and upper forehead are SUPER dry all the time, but my t-zone tends to be an oil slick. Cetaphil leaves my face feeling clean without overdrying, and in the year I have used it I have noticed a positive change in moisture balance. Because I do not have breakouts all that often, I would not be able to say if this wash is effective for acne sufferers, but with how gentle it has been on MY skin, I'd say it's a safe bet.

The cleanser is crystal clear (no annoying, gimmicky micro-beads or shimmers) and even their normal formula is gentle enough for my skin - it doesn't aggravate my rosacea! I can even use it around my eyes to get off eye make-up without a lot of crying. No heavy fragrances, either. This face wash is simple and perfect, just like the bottle it comes in. 16 oz will last you a few months, as 1 pump of this stuff goes a long way. Definitely a bargain, and worth purchasing and using for life!

I was a little skeptical about using charcoal on my face but decided to give it a try. Boy I'm glad i did! Its very refreshing with an almost cooling sensation, exfoliating without being overyly so and definently helps pull some of the nasty gunk from your pores. I had pretty bad blackheads and had tried so many different products to get rid of them to no avail. But now that I'm using the biore charcoal cleanser i can definitely see a difference and big reduction in the amount of blackheads. In my opinion my skin just looks better all around since starting to use this almost two months ago. To anyone who is skeptical about using charcoal in a face cleanser, don't be! I urge you to give it a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the results just like i was. Oh and i have found it to not be drying to my skin either and doesn't take much product to get the job done. Mpst certainly a MUST TRY!

My favorite facial cleanser ever and I have tried a ton...Proactiv, Murad, Kiehls, anything you can think of I've tried! But this by far is my favorite. I love the smell first off because it smells so fresh and citrusy! In the mornings when I get up and take a shower the first thing I do is use this and it really does make you feel awake and energized for the day! Opens your pores and you can feel the cleanliness after using it. It's design is bright and appealing! I love he bursting beads and they really help to exfoliate when needed! It lathers very well which I love. It also has helped my acne which nothing ever has helped my acne but usually makes it worse but this does! It hasn't gotten completely rid of it and it isn't a dramatic difference but I feel like it has helped control it better and just makes my skin feel better! Makes me happy and feel ready to start the day! Thanks for a great product! Will keeping buying it!

This is my favorite scrub! I've been using Aveeno scrubs for a few years but this one is the best. I feel like it definitely brightens your skin and also helps with breakouts. The scrub itself isn't too rough on the skin and it smells good. I think its priced a reasonable price especially because it is super effective! I only use a little more than dime size amount and it works wonders. The product itself lasts me about 3months since I usually only use it at night unless its that time of the month then I use it in the mornings as well, since thats when I tend to break out a lot (sorry too much info, I know). I also had issues with dark spots on my cheeks and I feel like this helps them a lot. Overall I LOVE this product and I will keep buying it! I definitely recommend to anyone to try, you won't regret it.

Pond's Cold Cream has been on the shelves for decades, and there is no question of the reason for it's longevity. This is a thick, creamy, moisturizer that will remove any makeup, including waterproof. The oils in the formula break apart makeup and waterproof makeup completely and it leaves your skin feeling soft and supple. It has a light fragrance that I honestly quite like, and it doesn't leave your skin feeling oily or greasy. I was using coconut oil to remove makeup prior to purchasing this, and honestly this is comparable to coconut oil, both in its ability to remove makeup and its moisturizing properties. I also have acne, and this hasn't clogged my pores or caused any breakouts. Its also so affordable. Honestly, I would never buy any fancy bottle of makeup remover when I can spend less than $10 on a jar of this. Its been around for decades because it works.

I have very oily skin and break out very easily, and I was having trouble finding a cleanser that wouldn't make my skin more oily or too dry and still get rid or and prevent my breakouts. But this stuff is awesome! I've been using it for maybe 2 weeks and already my skin is so much more clear and I have a lot less oil. Everyone is noticing how great my skin looks, and the only thing that's different is that I've started using this. The only complaint I have is that the exfoliating scrub that is a major part of this cleanser is very fine so it gets everywhere. In my hair, eyes etc. And I still can feel it after I've rinsed my face. But I will 100% deal with it because of how great my skin looks!
