I'm 36 and have suffered my share of acne and allergies. I've never used a shampoo/body cleanser on my face before because the skin on my face is t-zone oily with sensitive cheeks...well..until now. I only tried it on my face after reading the reviews on this product. (Btw, I love reading the reviews on drugstore.com...thanks all!). I find that most cleansing products don't do a good job of removing SPF; therefore I use a cleansing oil to remove the SPF first and then wash it off with this product in the shower...and it works great! I've used this at home but also think this would be great for travel because it cleans head to toe with AHA as an exfoliant to boot! Only thing is it's a bit pricey for an 8 oz bottle...but then again it does the job of 4 different products: shampoo, bodywash, facewash and exfoliant...AND it doesn't make me breakout. Also, my scalp doesn't feel oily the next day either...so I can skip a day of shampoo. However, must use SPF when using this product...which I absolutely hate but it's necessary. Wow, where was this when I was a teen.

strips hair of color and nutrients

I read all the reviews of this and bought because I use a glycolic cleanser on my face to keep brown spots away and refresh my aging skin.
I was VERY disappointed in this product, too much lather, smells just like Johnson's baby shampoo from my youth, and it striped my hair which is color treated. My hair now looks very dry and brittle, instead of shiney like before.
I do not feel a "tingling" as other reviewers did, but now use it when shaving my legs just to finish off the product. I don't think it works as a body cleanser either, but I'm hoping if it really has any glycolic acid in it (which I doubt) that it will make my legs smoother. So far, I see no difference...I have been using it for 2 weeks.

      Comments about Aqua Glycolic Shampoo & Body Cleanser, 8 fl oz:

      10 years ago I went to my doctor with acne and she recommended this product. "I know it says it's a shampoo," she said, "but their facial cleanser and moisturizer doesn't do the trick."

      Oddly, I even tried the other products in the line and sure enough had to agree with her-- the cleanser alone is too light, the cleanser and the moisturizer both used together dried me out. The body wash and shampoo is a little bit stronger than the cleanser, but not enough to wipe out your skin.

      Recently I went to the #1 dermatologist in NYC (according to NYMag) and he was asking after my cleansers to make sure I was using something good for my problematic cystic acne. I told him Aqua Glycolic and he smiled. "Oh, good," he said. "You've got that down, at least. You're doing that right."

      Bonus? I used it as a shampoo when I'm out of my regular, and it works GREAT. Even on my problem scalp.

        I don't like bar soap as it leaves film on my skin and dries it out. This cleanser is gentle .

            I love this as a body cleanser - it doesn't dry out my skin. My husband uses it as a shampoo and is happy it works on his oily scalp.

                  This product was recommended to me some years ago by my dermatologist to use to exfoliate my scalp when I was suffering with seborritic dermatitis. Use it about twice a week in addition to Nizoral or other medicated shampoo and it greatly elminates the flaking.

                  Additionally, it is a great body wash that gently exfoliates the dead skin cells, which are what produce a lot of one's body odor, and leave you clean and fresh smelling. I use it on my face too (but avoid eyes)

                          This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist as a gentle, oil-removing facial wash. I have used the shampoo and body cleanser daily for many years and always have a clear complexion. Obtaining it became difficult after I moved away from my doctor, but am very pleased with its availability and price at drugstore.com!
