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:

    My teenage son is on acne topicals, and I have Rosacea-prone skin. We both are able to use this cleanser because it is so gentle. He doesn't tell me when he is almost finished, and once we needed to switch to another cleanser for a few days. The difference was noticeable, and now I keep back ups. I find that it works effectively to remove the daily grind, including makeup for me without drying. I use makeup remover for my eye makeup, and this as an entire face wash and it works well.

    Aquanil was recommended by my dermatologist, years ago. It's a gentil cleanser, no scent, wonderfly gentle. I highly recommend it for facial cleansing. It won't remove all eye makeup, but may remove most.
    This is a very nice facial cleanser.

        Use it especially to wash off eye makeup as it does not burn and does a good job. My dermatologist recommended it years ago for my sensitive skin and I have been using it ever since.

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

          After stopping birth control pills, I experienced terrible, seemingly unstoppable acne on my forehead, cheeks, and chin. I'm in my late 20's and never experienced any acne in my teen or college years. Over 8 months, I tried every product imaginable. I bought expensive brand-name cleansers, masks, moisturizers, supplies, etc. and even tried at-home herbal remedies and tea tree oil. Nothing seemed to work. Until I tried this. I've been using this for 2.5 months and my acne is almost completely gone. I was skeptical about using it at first because it smelled like vaseline and seemed like it wasn't going to clean my face thoroughly. It doesn't give you that "squeeky clean" feeling that gel cleansers give you. But, that's a GOOD THING if you have acne and sensitive skin. I started to notice real improvements in my face after about 6 weeks. I love this stuff and will be a lifelong user!

                  My dermatologist recommended this and it beats anything else I have ever used as a cleanser. I have dry skin and this never leaves my skin tight or dry. This beats cleansers I have tried that were very expensive and highly rated. I have not been able to find this in a store, so I order it here online. Nothing beats it.

                        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.
