Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Unsafe product! This product is dangerous and should not be marketed as a makeup remover, especially not for the eyes! I have used Neutrogena's Oil Free Makeup Remover for years and never had an issue. I tried this new "one-step cleanser" on a whim and regret it immensely. When the "oil free" remover gets in your eyes it rinses out easily, no tears or pain. This "one-step" stuff is sticky like liquid hand soap, and I got some in my eyes before it was watered down. It hurt so badly I screamed. I hate putting drops in my eyes, but this hurt so much I put my eyes under cold water from the showerhead like an emergency eyewash station. That only made the stinging worse. I tried gentle saline rinses for the next half hour, but everything felt like fire in my eyes, and nothing dulled the pain. On the verge of heading to urgent care, I finally held an icecube against my eye and got some relief. I slept with a cool cloth on my face and when I woke up the next morning my eyes were still red and painful. This cleanser went straight into the trash can, it is NOT safe. Jul 23, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Make-up remover!! Neutrogena Gentle One Step Cleanser, 5.2 Ounce Not understanding why this excellent product is being taken off grocery/drug stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doctor says my skin looks great. I am 68 years old and my skin is really younger looking. I have used this product only, no soap for over 15 years. People have asked me about what I use on my face because it is so clear. I would give this product the highest recommendation. Aug 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Cleanser Is simply the best cleanser I have ever used! I used it about 2 years ago and thought the product was discontinued. To my surprise, it's back and loving it again. Thanks! Jul 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Face is Clean! I have tried everything to find a product that will actually leave my face clean...product after product and even those spin brushes...nothing worked until the one step gentle cleanser! I can wash my face quickly with this product and there isn't any make-up residue or dirt left behind like other products. My skin texture has improved too. I love it! My only complaint is that I cannot find it locally. So glad for online orders! Thanks Neutrogena! Jul 25, 2014

Wet face and hands with lukewarm water. Pump cleanser into hands and work into a foamy lather. Massage lather onto face with a gentle, circular motion. Massage around eyes several times until all makeup is removed. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
