I have been eyeing this cleanser for a while now. I kept picking it up and putting it back at the store. I was really worried that it would be too drying for my skin. Yesterday, I finally just took the plunge and purchased it. This morning, I reluctantly tried it. WOW! It was truely invigorating! It smells really nice too! With all that aside, it did not strip my face and my skin felt comfortable. Not overly dry, just right. I have combination skin with the tendancy to become dry, I am just one of those stubborn people who hate cream cleansers. I have to have lather (I know I'm not the only one out there)to feel cleansed. I say, try it!

I can't stand the smell and my hair couldn't possibly be any frizzier. I don't even want to give it away. I am so disappointed that there are no words to describe this crap.

My new foundation
I noticed this at the store and was fascinated by the term "Sweat Proof". I purchased this in the color 03 Sand Beige. I had read reviews about this being hard to blend so I purchased some disposable sponge rounds and proceeded to apply it this way rather than with a foundation brush. I did not have any trouble blending this foundation and I really love the fact that it really does keep my face shine free during my work hours. It is a very light foundation, yet it covers up all of my areas where I have some broken capillaries. This truely is Colorstay and where I live with the humidity, it really stands up to the challenge of staying matte. I have not had to retouch and I really don't see a need for powder although I purchased the Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder just in case. I really feel that this would be a great alternative for those who have an active lifestyle and those with oily skin as well. I have combination skin and I find this to be just fine if I apply a moisturizer prior to application.

My title says it all! I have to tell you this story...I happened to be researching this cleanser and discovered it is a Johnson & Johnson Product, then I did a comparison to this with Purpose Gentle Cleanser because I was debating on purchasing this on a budget thought. Anyway, I noticed that the ingredients are exactly the same! So Purpose is about $6-$7 for 6 oz. and this cleanser is $4-$5 for 8 oz. What a bargain! You get more for less $$$! WAIT! This is even better other than the ingredients list being in a varied order Johnson & Johnson's Head to Toe Baby Wash also has the same ingredients! WOW! So, I purchased a 28 oz. Bottle of Johnson & Johnson's Head to Toe Baby Wash for $6 and put it into a smaller pump bottle I had laying around! All in all I find this to be a great cleanser and I often switch from this to Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar. Both awesome products.

I finally decided to purchase this item after using the matching facial cleanser for quite some time now. I am impressed! It is very refreshing and smells wonderful. It doesn't dry out my skin, it only enhances my skin to feel smooth. I was scared to try this toner as most can be pretty irritating and I do have sensitive/ reactive skin. I am pretty happy with this toner so far.

I recently started using Retin-A Micro and my Derm told me that I have to use a suncreen everyday. He recommended this product to me in SPF 85 or 100. I chose to use the SPF 85. I really was hesitant as I felt that the higher you go with SPF the greasier sunscreens become. Not in this case. Neutrogena has a gold mine in this product! This is a wonderful solution to those with acne-prone, oily, sensitive skin folks who are looking for great SPF. I wasted so much money trying other products out there, only to discover how sticky and oily suncreens can really be. The smell is really faint (fresh) and disappears quickly. It doesn't even feel like you have anything on. Honestly. You can't glob it on though, that is when it can be greasy and sticky. Just start off with maybe a dime size first.

I purchased this along with the St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer. I have combo skin, sometimes dry, sometimes oily. In either case I have many of those sensitive days and this is so soothing. I don't wear much make-up, but the little bit I wear comes off very easily with this. I think it smells nice too. I think for anyone on a budget, you can't beat St. Ives for budget & quality.

I just purchased this item from all the great reviews. Let me start off by saying it was $3.50 @ Wal-Martfor a 10 oz jar. WOW! I came home & applied it to my chin(I have been suffering from flakey skin there) I was pleasantly surprised to see my flakey skin disappear, PLUS, it isn't greasy!!! I have combo skin, sometimes dry or oily. It is really humid here this week & this stuff is far from greasy! It absorbed so nicely & did what I had hoped it would do. My skin is very soft and smooth! What a great bargain with quality. Try it!

Ahhhhhh! A little peice of Heaven!!!
Let me start off by saying that I have combination, very sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I love this treatment because I have seen a dramatic difference in my skin! I look in the mirror after 2 months use and I see my skin glowing!!! The best part about this treatment is that it absorbs so quickly it allows you the opportunity to follow up with a moisturizer on dry days or just an SPF on those humid days. Did I mention the heavenly scent? Fabulous! I can't live without it. This is the first thing you see when opening my medicine cabinet. 1st thing I apply after cleansing! I have been using the same jar now for 2 month's and I just ordered more. I am in love with this product!

I had to leave this review because my son's complexion is on its way to becoming normal again. Yes, I purchased this item for my teenage son. It happen to be on sale and it has two things in one product! Retinol and Blemish fighting ingredients. If you take your child to a Dermatologist. This is what they would prescribe. Retin-A or Differin and an acne fighting cream. My son raves about this because it doesn't irritate his skin and he is able to apply this twice a day. The only thing he has to be religious about is the use of SPF over this cream. His face stopped being red and stopped being so shiny. He was so thankful to me for bringing this home for him. I just had to write this review. If your fustrated for your teenager, this might be something worth trying.
