Okay this is the best face wash I have tried yet!! It's not too expensive and it is pretty gentle. I have dry and sensitive skin and this doesn't strip my oils and make my face feel dry or tight.
I bought it at target cause I really needed a new cleanser and this one had very good reviews so I gave it a try. It doesn't make your face look shiny either. I would recommend this product if you are low on budget or you have dark spots on your face. To be honest it also cleared my acne as well.

I wanted a gentle cleanser for my acne-prone skin. This type of foaming cleanser (texture and gentle smell) is what I was looking for. I also bought this because it claimed to control my break-outs, but I don't know what I was expecting; the salycic acid is 0.5% I believe, which is extremely low compared to other acne medicine. I understood that this is a daily cleanser, so it shouldn't have a high content; but it does nothing at all for my acne. It cleans oil pretty well, but it cannot get rid of any type of waterproof liner. I would still end up with panda eyes going to bed if I relied solely on this wash. It still dries out my skin though! So it's at a balance between: too weak to wash makeup and too harsh that i dries out my skin. I do love the way it feels on my skin though. It comes out as foam and it feels extremely soft to use, so I was a bit surprised that it left my skin dry. I'd only recommend this if you have fairy normal skin and plan to use it in the morning. Effectiveness PRO - Gets rid of oil CON - Doesn't get rid of makeup - Doesn't help my acne or breakouts - Dries out my skin Ease of Application It feels extremely nice to use since it is a foaming cleanser. Scent Light scent but it's nothing special. Aveeno doesn't have much strong or distinct scents to begin with.

I really enjoy the Aveeno positively radiant cleanser. I use this in the morning to give my face a nice cleanse from the night. I love that it has a pump and it fits nicely in most bath rooms because it is slim and tall. I give this a four out of five because I think it does make my skin smoother, less blotchy all while not drying it out. I would recommend this if you are looking for a non drying facial cleanser.

I used this cleanser for over a year and I still continue to love it and rotate it into my routine. It has a very pleasant mild scent and lathers very nicely without foaming. It has a gel like consistency that really feels like it’s cleansing, but not stripping my skin the way sulfates do. I use this as a second cleanser after my oil based cleanser and it removes all of the oil residue while balancing my skin out nicely. I would recommend to friends and family!

I use this once daily, sometimes twice, when I shower. I’ve tried it for about a month and half now. My mother had told me she loves it and I needed to give a try. It’s very gentle but I felt like sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. I would see amazing results after not using it a couple days but then the more I used it the more I felt like I was breaking out even more. I used it after using Aveeno® Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser in-shower.

I have sensitive skin and I'm always hesitant to try new products on my skin. Once I started using Aveeno cleansers, I stuck with them. These cleansers are one of the only products that seems to work well with my skin. It works really well with fighting my acne and keeping my skin clear. I don't get really irritated after using them and my skin feels refreshed afterwards.

This cleanser feels light on the skin but does a great job of actually cleansing. I always feel really clean after using this and it never dries my skin. Before I started using this, I couldn't use a cleanser on my face daily because it would dry out my skin. However, this formula is gentle enough that I can use it twice a day, every day, without drying my skin.

If you have skin sensitivities, this cleanser is a must! It is specially formulated for dry/ sensitive skin . It is gentle enough for daily use and won't irritate or make worse any dermal issue you may be having. It is easy to use and comes in a great little bottle that is convenient and can easily put I your purse for travel. After use you are left feeling clean and refreshed, not dried out like some cleansers can leave sensitive skin. I'd reccomend this to anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors, especially men who may work outside, after a long day in the sun , skin can be quite Sensitive due to exposure..its a very gentle, effective formula.

To be frank my skin has always been all over the place unfortunately guys. I have a combination of oily to dry skin and it fluctuates with the seasons & time of the month. I’ve honestly tried almost every face wash/scrub under the sun both high end and prescribed... but this Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser has honestly been the cure for my complicated skin. It doesn’t dry out my face nor is there any kind of filmy build up left on my skin after using it. It’s light yet gets the job done without irritating my skin. I’m so glad I happened upon this product it’s both cheap and affective. I pair it with the Aveeno Lotion as well as the Aveeno Exfoliating pads for a complete face routine, absolutely love it!

Best cleanser for dry skin. It leaves my skin very clean and feeling hydrated. All the ingredients agree well with my skin. If I ever stop using it, it’s not long before I return to it. You need a small amount for great results. Great value!Aveeno Positively Radiant CleanserAveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser

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.
