Do you shy away from any skin-care product with "regimen" in the name? 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've been using this product for 15 plus years, absolutely love it. Basis leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. Anytime I've been forced to use another product due to unavailability my face feels oily and breaks out. Try Basis, you won't regret it.

        I have used this twice a day for YEARS. Being a redhead, I always had sensitive skin & this product has always worked for me. I like that you're not touching & retouching like a bar soap. The cleanliness & results cannot be beat.

          Comments about basis cleaner clean face wash, 6 fl oz:

          This face wash has been my holy grail since I saw it in a walmart over 3 years ago. Now I can only seem to buy it online, thank goodness for drugstore.com! I am out of town and almost ran out of my current basis bottle and so I decided I needed to buy something from the store... Tried another cleanser and boom little pimples all over my face... I was distraught so I came to drugstore.com to ship a few bottles to the place I'm staying for a little while. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!

              Leaves your face feeling super refreshed. I have sensitive skin and it doesnt irritate it. Smells nice and a little goes a long way! However if you have acne im not sure if this would clear it up. I use st. Ives anti blemish and blackhead scrub about 3x a week then use this the other four days and that has been working for me. Dony forget to moisturize after!

                  Been using for YEARS because of sensitive skin. Love that its not a bar soap that gets icky after use so less messy & more hygienic. Other places are not carrying this product any more so I'm thrilled that Drudstore.com has it & its reasonably priced.

                      I love this cleanser because it is so light and fresh smelling as well as gentle and effective. It works great on my skin, no matter what "mood" it's in. It never irritates my skin and washes off well, making my face feel clean and fresh. I have sensitive combination skin and it's great for it, because it cleans without drying or leaving residue. I highly recommend this.
