Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Leaves my skin feeling soft, but burns during use I'm not sure what to make of this product. I had used CeraVe moisturizing face wash, which is similar to this product at least in consistency (the creamy texture) but that one left my skin feeling somewhat dry after washing my face with it. After I ran out of that facewash I went to buy more and saw this one on the shelf. It cost less, had fewer ingredients, and contained the same amount of product (ok it was 1mL less but I don't want to nitpick) so I was somewhat excited to try this product out, especially since I liked the fact that it had so few ingredients in it. Sometimes I feel as if skincare companies almost overload their products with too many different ingredients. Well, here's where the confusion begins because I noticed that when I apply the cleanser on my face, my face begins to burn. When I wash it off, the burning goes away, and my face does not really feel dry afterwards, but I am wondering if it is a good idea to keep using it when a burning sensation obviously is not a good thing to feel from a skincare product. While I'm satisfied with how my skin felt afterwards, I am going to discontinue using this product due to the way it irritates my skin while it is on my face. :( Jul 17, 2015

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NOT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN This cleanser is anything but gentle. the very first time I used it it burned my skin. I thought i should try it again and it would go away but it got worse. This makes my skin dry and burn. Something in this product is not for sensitive skin. Mar 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So gentle, so fresh, so clean This cleanser cleans off all the dirt, dust and soot that I pick up from Kampala streets, but leaves my skin hydrated and soft. I love it! Mar 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE LOVE LOVE. Please Don't Change a Thing!! I usually don't write a lot of reviews but OMG, I love this!! It's so different from most cleansers. I had to write this in hopes that this formula will never be changed or discontinued (PLEASE) and that it might help someone else. This product changed my life. That Might sound extreme unless you've been battling with dry, sensitive, acne prone skin for over 15 years into your adult life. It's doesnt foam, it's Unscented, feels elegant and doesnt leave any residue. I've tried everything from prescription to holistic cleansers and moisterizers to no avail; just dryer skin, more acne, and itching, resulting in fine lines and scars. After the first week of using this my skin was soO friggin soft! Since it doesn't foam it doesn't make my skin feel tight and stripped. instead it feels really hydrated and calm. No irritation or dryness so my acne blemishes are healing really fast and my complexion is starting to look a lot healthier and refreshed. I've never been able to use a moisterizer either so I decided to try the oil free sensitive skin moisterizer. its fragrance free and very light so it feels really good on and I havent Had any breakouts with this product either. This Might not be the miracle solution for everyone since everyones skin is different but itis definitely worth a shot. It's amazing.!...Please don't change a thing! Jan 25, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Burning/tingling I agree with other reviewers: this product gives my skin a burning, irritating sensation. I didn't feel it the first couple of times I used it but I definitely do now. I used the product over twenty minutes ago and I still feel my skin burning slightly. It's not painful just irritating on multiple levels. I do like how creamy the product is, how my skin feels less dry, and the way it feels when I use it,, but the after effects aren't worth continuing using it. Jan 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I have been looking for This is exactly everything i have wanted in a cleanser. ultra gentle, moisturizing,affordable,minimal ingredients and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft, supple and not the least bit dry. my skin has never felt or looked better. i like to use this cleanser right after the shower and then rinse off my face as opposed to wetting my face first and then lathering. please dont change this exceptional cleanser I am completly sold and will continue to repurchase for a very long time well done Jan 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful I had previously went to a dermatologist and was given Neutrogena's oil free acne wash, retina-A micro and Epidou. I was told not to go out into the sun while using the prescribed medications. However, I live in Florida which made this very difficult. I ended up with chemical burns on my face from the retina-A micro and Epiduo. I have since then not been using anything on my face besides regular soap and water. During a college fair at my school, I obtained a trial size tube of Neutrogena"s ultra gentle hydrating cleanser, I tried it and have since then have people tell me that my face has been clearing up and asking what products I have been using. I am really pleased with this product. Even from the first wash, my skin has felt rejuvenated! I have noticed many other reviews of people saying that they felt a burning sensation when using this product and would suggest for them to stop using it immediately. Dec 30, 2014
