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 product is gentle and soap free. It is perfect for my face. You do have to get used to when you first start using it. Unlike traditional facial cleansers, it does not remove all of your natural oils from your face. You just have to make an adjustment to a different kind of clean feeling. I wouldn't use anything else!

        My Dermatologist gave me a sample 2 yrs ago because my face was inflamed and everything I used on it burned. I cleanse my face twice a day with it. It is gentle and effective. I LOVE it! The 16 oz lasts a long time so it is a good value..

          Simply, this is gentlest cleanser on the market. I have extremely sensitive, reactive skin, and this is the only cleanser I'm able to use without adverse reaction or sensitivity. The cleanser is also very effective; despite being gentle, it actually cleans your skin. It is noncomedogenic, so it does not cause acne; in fact, my acne has improved because my skin is calmed and not assaulted by harsh chemicals/products; it also does not aggravate my rosacea. I highly recommend this cleanser to everybody with sensitive skin!

            For years I've used Aquanil as a facial cleanser every time and anytime of the day and night. It was recommended to me by a friend who has extremely sensitive skin by her dermatologist. Whenever I try another cleanser, although I have my favorite line of facial products and cosmetics, I always go back to Aquanil. There is never a dry or burning sensation. It's not easy to find as I learned over ten years ago when we moved and I was thrilled to learn I could buy it at drugstore.com and the price is great. I love this product.

                  I've used this product on my face for many years because of skin problems I experienced. It is fragrance free, not oily and makes my skin feel smooth. As long as I use this, the "eczema like" dermatitis is kept in check. I am not sure if it is for anyone, but it certainly is a terrific product for me. I have tried similar products but they didn't work. I highly recommend Aquanil Cleanser.

                      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.
