I've been using this for years and it's an all-time favorite of mine. I have acne-prone, relatively oily skin, but it's also a little sensitive to skin products sometimes. I've had acne since I was in 5th grade and now, a freshman in college, it's not nearly as bad but I still have it occasionally. I've found that the times I stopped using this and used a different cleanser are the times my acne showed up again.

What I do is I first use an oil cleanser to remove my foundation and other makeup (only if I'm wearing makeup of course), wipe that off with a cloth, rinse my face, then cleanse with this. For moisturizer, I've used the Positively Radiant moisturizer and I loved it, but I'm currently using the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer since it works just as well for me and it's a bit cheaper.

This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean with no residue, but it's not drying. I feel that I should use a moisturizer afterward, but it's not overly drying and I could definitely get by without a moisturizer afterward without my skin feeling too tight or uncomfortable if I needed to.

I love the luminous color about it. I've never used a cleanser that looked like that before. It also has this really sweet, pleasant fragrance about it and usually I don't like face washes that have any smells because they end up being too irritating or have something I woul be allergic to in them. This was not the case. It definitely gives me a more brightening, radiant looking, less dull, complexion. It is gentle and has a very mild lather. I don't recommend getting it in your eyes though or putting it on your eyes. It does sting, alot! Also if you get any in your mouth, it tastes gross. Also I don't recommend using this 1st if you have on a full face of makeup. It doesn't really remove it, just swoosh it around. Use wipes 1st then the Aveeno or use the Aveeno and then a second face wash to make sure everything is fully removed.

Lthough I typically opt for a more natural cleanser, Aveeno's foaming cleanser really hits the spot during breakouts. It's very gentle on my super sensitive skin and the amount of salicylic acid is minimal but still packs a punch for pimples. I'm able to use this cleanser twice a day without over drying. I was slightly skeptical of the foam not doing very much compared to a cream cleanser, but about 1.5 pumps applied to a wet face goes a long way. I pair this cleanser with a light, SPF moisturizer during the day to prevent over drying.

I give it only 4 stars because Aveeno has a big "natural" market, but their products aren't that natural. Compared to Burt's Bees, Nature's Gate, and Simply Natural, this product contains more chemicals than I'd like, but is to be sort of expected for a complexion clearing product.

For someone with combination skin, this is the only face wash I will ever use. I started using it in high school after trying thousands of different products, and this is the only thing I trust to completely remove make up (even the stubborn stuff), and fight acne entirely. I'm not sure if acne-fighting is something this product advertises or not, but I do know that it does just that. I've hardly had any kind of break out problem since I started washing with this cleanser many years ago. It feels great on my skin, rinses easily, smells terrific, and lasts a pretty good while. I will only ever purchase this product for a face wash, following with the positivity radiant moisturizer which is also flawless.

Currently using this guy in hopes of lightening discoloration due to acne. So far I've noticed a slight improvement I don't think I've been using it long enough to expect anything great (a couple of weeks). But as far as cleansing goes this product does an excellent job when I use my toner after there is never a trace of anything. My only complaint is I wish it had a bit more of a lather to it as I can't really use it with my clarisonic because it doesn't get sudsy enough with it however when I wash my face with my hands it's perfectly fine. For me however the clarisonic aspect is a big deal because I did not pay all that money for the clarisonic to not use it because of 1 facial wash.

At first i was really upset by the product. It claims to reduce redness and brighten completion, but the first time I used it, my face was hot, red, and irritated for about an hour after having washed my face. Because the pump allows for the product to foam, it seemed as though one pump wasn't enough, but it is!! Using multiple pumps to saturate my face was the reason my face became irritated. The more I have used it, I have come to like it, and my face is no longer irritated after use. It leaves my skin feeling soft and oil free, I just use it in moderation.

I bought this cleanser in hopes that it would help freshen up the look of my skin. It does exactly what it says it does. My skin feels clean and has a glow to it And as a bonus, it smells absolutely amazing. It's so refreshing. The only thing I'd say is a con for this product, and this may just be for me and my skin, but it left my skin feeling very... tight? I definitely need to apply moisturizer afterwards. Also, it hasn't improved the mild acne I get. I have yet to try the Positively Radiant facial lotion, but my Olay works just fine.

This product is great for the price. I have oily skin, and it helps reduce the natural production of oil in my skin. It helps keep my skin hydrated, yet not oily! It does help the face look brighter, especially if you use the face washes int he Aveeno Positively radiant line.
I have acne prone-extremely oily skin and this did not break me out at all. It didn't make a huge difference in the amount of acne I had on my face, but that's okay because this is not an acne specific product! I enjoyed this for the reasonable price tag!

So far I've had pretty good results using this cleanser. Aveeno is a brand I trust, being that I have pretty sensitive skin and their products never seem to cause me any breakouts or other troubles. That also goes for this cleanser. It made my skin less dry where it tends to dry out (namely around my eyes), caused no irritation, leaves my face feeling clean and not greasy, and does a pretty good job (though not the best) of removing makeup. I've been using this for about a week in the shower at night, and so far, so good!

This has become my go-to cleanser. It's not lifechanging by any means, but I have found Aveeno products consistently work well with my skin (somewhat sensitive, acne-prone, combination). I love the foam - it feels like you can use less product for more. The smell is very fresh, and overall using it leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed, but not completely stripped of oils. I've tried many other cleansers but always seem to come back to this one, especially during the summer.

Is it just me, or after using this product for a little while, it starts to smell kind of weird? Not bad, just like different.
