    i have battled red, dry, flaky parts of skin on my face since puberty hit; particularly the folds of my nose and my eyebrow area(s). at 28 years old, i had literally tried everything over-the-counter intended for use on sensitive skin. they only made my situation worse, so i avoided washing my face altogether and just relied on a prescription steroid cream for the frequent flare-ups i endured. i was afraid of getting my face wet at all because when it would dry, my sensitive areas would be redder, drier, and flakier than before. my dermatologist told me that it is essential to wash my face of dirt and grime daily. when i told him about my problems, he told me about aquanil. not only is aquanil the ONLY product i've ever used that didn't worsen my problem areas, it's the ONLY product i've used that's actually helped them! in conjunction with a lighter prescription cream which i apply once a week, i use aquanil every morning when i shower (and sometimes before i go to bed if i've been particularly active and sweating during the day). i cannot tell you how much this product has literally changed my life. the persistent and seemingly unending red blotches and flakes i lived with for 15 years are all but gone (occasionally, the folds of my nose will still flare-up, but only during seasonal/weather changes - and the aquanil knocks them out in 48 hours). if you've had similar trial-and-error disappointments with alleged "sensitive skin" cleansers like i had, worry no more and look no further than aquanil.

    My dermatologist suggested this cleanser for me since I have sensitive skin and acne. I am not convinced that it works all that well for me, but I am willing to give it a while. It feels greasy when you put it on, but rinses clean. No strong odor, no foaming. I use it in the shower. I have not noticed any major improvement in the number of or frequency of break-outs and I have been using it for over a month.

        Comments about Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser, 16 fl oz:

        This is the best cleanser I have ever used -- if they ever discontinue making it, I'm in trouble! I have extremely reactive, sensitive, and dry skin. Even Cetaphil irritates it. In my opinion, Aquanil is the most gentle, yet effective, cleanser on the market.

          My dermatologist recommended this cleanser for my sensitive skin. Works really well. Easy to use in the morning and evening. Just doesn't do well to remove eye makeup. But is good for sensitive skin, doesn't make skin dry.

                Comments about Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser, 16 fl oz:

                This is a "soapless" cleanser. You won't get much lather, so don't expect it. Gentle enough to not harm facial skin, but strong enough to remove most makeup. Have been using Aquanil Cleanser since 2005 after healing from rosacea. I won't use anything else. I keep a small refillable squeeze bottle of it in the shower and the pump bottle by the bathroom sink. In the morning, I wash my face in the shower and the sink before bed to wash and remove makeup. Don't be put off by the price. You won't use that much each time, and a 16 ounce bottle will last quite a while. I am a healthcare practitioner and I provide Aquanil Cleanser for my patients with sensitive or allergic skin.

                          My dermatologist recommended that I use this after using the washroom to
                          clean up afterwards, if you know what I mean. I've been following his advice for years now and can't imagine not using Aquanil for this purpose. No need to feel itchy or soil undergarments after "going" anymore.

DR. recommened Aquanil to cleanse dry, senstive vaginal tissues (post menopause),but I use Aquanil for bathing my whole body--face to feet. AHHHH....please don't stop making Aquanil! I need to use cold cream and warm wash cloth to remove makeup first, tho.

                            Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser

                             – No matter what your skin type is, your complexion requires daily cleansing to remain in the best of health. If you have sensitive skin, cleansing can be a challenging step in your skin care routine, as many traditional facial cleansers can irritate and dry out delicate skin. Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser is different from traditional harsh cleansers in that it was made specifically to cleanse and purify delicate complexions like yours. Adding it to your daily regimen can help you thoroughly wash your face with less risk of irritation.

                            An Ideal Cleanser for Sensitive Skin



                            Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser uses gentle surfactants in place of soap to dissolve oils, whisk away makeup and purify the skin. The formula is frequently recommended by dermatologists for those who are prone to hypersensitivity reactions, as it is hypoallergenic and fragrance free. As it cleanses, the formula leaves behind emollients to soften and moisturize delicate skin; however, the product does not clog the pores, and it is does not contain fat-derived moisturizers.

                            Simple-to-Use Cleansing Formula



                            Using Aquanil Cleanser A Gentle, Soapless Lipid-Free Cleanser means getting the benefits of a deep cleanse without having to rely on a complicated skin care routine. Just a small amount of the cleanser is needed to completely clean the face. After massaging it against the complexion, you can rinse it clean or wipe it off with a tissue or a cloth, making the formula simple to use at home or on the go.

                            Helping People Have Healthy Complexions for Over 70 Years



                            Aquanil is made by Person & Covey, a company that has been providing high quality personal care solutions since 1941. The company was started by a top chemist and continues their founder's legacy by carefully researching and testing every product in their family of brands.
