If you're tired of complicated, expensive facial treatments, it's time to turn to a simple, effective face wash that's part of a low-maintenance routine. Here's the answer: a pleasing tube of clear cleanser stocked with gentle botanicals, such as mint, lemongrass, and chamomile, that you lather up with, and rinse off. That's it ... no muss, no fuss. Just clean skin.

I worked in a small-town drugstore for 3 years while in college, and while there I discovered this fantastic product. I have never had too many problems with my skin, so I have no idea how this product does against bad acne or anything else. In general, my skin is clear but with a tendency toward dryness. I need a cleanser that thoroughly cleans my skin but doesn't add to the dryness. THIS IS IT.
Pros:
~Smells great. Lemongrass and chamomile help relax me at the end of the day.
~Deep cleans without residue, film, or greasiness. Also gives the feeling of having exfoliated skin without the harsh consequences of over-exfoliation.
~Oil-free and soap-free, so great for sensitive skin (like my sister, who also uses this product) or dry skin (like me!)
~Simple but effective. I hate products that take forever to use, have multiple steps, etc. Lather and rinse and go.
~AWESOME price. The most I have ever paid for a bottle is like $6.50. Online it's even cheaper. Plus, one bottle lasts for almost 6 months. Great deal. I can totally handle $12 a year for great looking skin!

Cons:
~None that I can see. I see a lot of comments about how hard it is to find, and that's somewhat legitimate. Especially in smaller cities or more rural areas. I live in DC so it's not an issue here. Try a major drugstore chain or drugstore.com. Stock up.
~Make sure you have a good moisturizer. I use Pond's Dry Skin Care Cream and it's the best combination.

I would recommend this product without hesitation. It is worth any trouble you have to go to to get it.

I have moderate acne and I was hoping a simple cleanser like this would help because I was tried of all the chemically face washes I had been using. It made my skin great at first. The first week or two, my red marks went away, my face was less greasy, I had a glow going on. Then it got bad again. I think it actually brought out more redness. And I'm very fair skinned so it stood out alot.
To it's credit though, this face wash defintiely took off make up and made my skn feel super clean. It didn't dry my skin out and it smells great. Unfortunately, I think I need those extra chemcals to help fight acne.

                    I have been using this product for years. It is less expensive than the department store brand that I used to buy. It's getting harder to find it in local stores so I was thrilled to get it on drugstore.com. After using it my skin feels clean, without any residue. I also find that it doesn't leave my skin feeling dried out. I have combination skin, so I appreciate a product that is gentle yet effective in cleaning my skin. It's also great for cleaning out cosmetic brushes and pads. Once I tried to use soap to clean a brush and it didn't seem clean. I used this right after and was amazed as to how much built up residue came out. Highly recommend this product.

                      I am an esthetician, so I am very picky about my face wash. This gets all of my makeup off without having to try hard. It smells clean and is very gentle.
