My dermatologist recommended this cleanser. I'm so glad I heeded his recommendation! I've been using this product for 4 years and I love it now as much as when I first tried it. It's so gentle on my skin and doesn't strip the natural oils, leaving my face clean, but not dry or tight. It easily removes my makeup with no tugging or scrubbing. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an effective, but gentle cleanser.
