Extra Gentle Cleanser provides more than just gentle cleansing for even the most sensitive skin.

This rich, dermatologist-recommended formula adds back moisture every time you use it. Skin is left more moisturized, so it retains resiliency and suppleness. With anti-irritants Chamomile and Vitamin E, its soap-free formula provides gentle yet effective cleansing, and it won't leave a filmy residue that can clog pores.

Adds back moisture every time you cleanse for soft, smooth skin.
  • Non-comedogenic
  • Hypoallergenic

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!! I have been using this cleanser for YEARS, and now it's apparently been discontinued and replaced with a "new and improved" version that's called Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser. The new version is fine, but I was kind of surprised to find that this new version has a "warm" feeling like it's tingling or has some ingredient in it that feels warm or hot, like a pepper. The "warm" feeling is nice, but I'm not sure it's supposed to be there. It almost feels like a Glycolic Peel facial I would get at a spa. The Extra Gentle Cleanser didn't do that. It would be great to have a choice. I would definitely use both products. The old version when I just want a clean feeling with no "heat", and the new version when I feel like I need a little something extra. Thanks. Oct 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Love it Love it Love it Usually cleansers are harsh on my skin, and sometimes even sensitive cleansers don't work out well for me. But this I recommend, it's soft it's gentle and it does it's job well. I use it twice a day and at the end of the day I use this after taking off my makeup and it my skin just feels soft and clean. Not striped and dry. I love it Mar 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hope this was not discontinued. I have been using this cleanser for a few years now, and I absolutely love it. Although I have an oily complexion, my skin is very sensitive. I had been having trouble finding it in the stores but recently cannot find it anywhere. Has it been discontinued? Mar 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this cleanser! I have never used a cream cleanser. I always used a foaming face wash, but my skin had been breaking out terribly. My skin is not oily and breaks out if it gets too dry so I decided to try the Extra Gentle Cleanser creamy formula and have not had one break out in 6 months. I absolutely love it and my skin feels so soft. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has dry, sensitive skin. Jan 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best cleanser for sensitive skin I have ever used Let me start by saying that I am generally a cosmetic/beauty product snob. Unless I am in a pinch, I do not use drugstore brands. That being said, this is the absolute best cleanser I have ever used for my fair, sensitive skin that is prone to dryness. I have used so many other specialty and high end brands and none of them have been as good. This has never left my skin irritated. It always feels soft and moisturized and never tight. I have used enough beauty products in my life to know that the tight feeling that people equate to cleanliness is not necessary. When I use this cleaner my skin looks youthful and free from fine lines. My only concern is my inability to find this anymore. None of my local drugstores or grocery stores ever have it. They only ever have the Ultra Gentle Cleanser which is not at all what I want. If I am out of town and I see it, I will literally buy every single one the store has. I hope that this does not get discontinued as it takes me years to find products that I am loyal to. This is a must for anyone with sensitive skin who normally won't give drugstore brands a chance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very gentle for rosacea skin This is a wonderful product that I have used for years. It is so gentle and soothing on my rosacea problem skin. I would recommend it for anyone but especially for someone with problem skin. Dec 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only cleanser that doesn't dry out sensitive skin! After two rounds of Accutane, my skin cannot tolerate most cleansers. I'd been a fan of Neutrogena's fresh foaming cleanser for five years before completing the second round. It started drying out my face too much after the second round. Luckily I found this cleanser and it's godsent! I love using it as a tissue-off cleanser (was too scared to try, but turns out my skin loves not using water to rinse!). Dec 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves your face clean, not tight and dry I switched to this cleanser when I realized my old "organic gentle acne cleanser" had menthol and added fragrances in it. Menthol is an irritant but is added to products so you get that fresh tingly feeling, which is more likely due to subtle inflammation than being "fresh and clean". I also decided that I didn't want anything in my cleanser that had "added benefits". This might sound contradictory but I just wanted a cleanser that cleaned in the most gentle effective way possible; I get the benefits of vitamins and anti-oxidants from my toner and moisturizers that don't get washed down the drain. It was an interesting switch at the start, as my face didn't have that usual tingle/tight feeling BUT it was still SO clean and fresh! My skin is definitely feeling healthier, and looks great. This cleanser will be a keeper! Oct 21, 2014
