I have oily skin and realized years ago that using soaps and cleansers that in any way, and I stress any way, are designed to dry out or control oily skin only make the oil glands produce more oil. Most acne cleansers do the same. It made sense -- strip the oil, dry the skin, and the oil glands become hyper-active to compensate for the dryness. The skin becomes even more oily, you try it control it more frequently, it becomes oilier. A nasty cycle I would image a lot of people are experiencing.

So, I went the other way despite the extra skin lubrication I was born with and tried to find a cleanser that was hydrating, gentle, would not clog pores (very important), and make my skin feel clean without over-stripping it. I tried a couple of brand name gentle cleansers over several months, giving each one a fair try by letting my skin adjust to them (important). Eucerin worked perfectly to balance out my skin. It's very gentle, leaves my skin feeling clean without drying it out, and oil production has been significantly reduced.

I think Eucerin proved my theory that using cleansers designed for oily skin only make the skin oilier and can even lead to break-outs because if you dry out oily skin, the skin sheds more cells inside the pores and on the surface. The cells mix with the increased oil production, clog the pores, and blemishes can form.

I have been using this cleanser for over 8 years and have recommended it to many people with dry, oily, and sensitive skin. They all love it. Check the ingredients to make sure you are not allergic to anything. Then give it a try for a few months. I don't think you will be disappointed.

By the way, this is the first product review I have ever written. There are so few things I purchase and consume that are worth the time to comment on. Hope this review was helpful.

Oddly enough for a cleanser that has the word "hydrating" in its title, this cleanser did dry out my skin. It is fantastic for makeup removal, and is very gentle for sensitive skin, but I don't have particularly dry skin and I had to stop using this product. It just made my skin too tight, and I had to use too much moisturizer to make up for that - and then I started breaking out. I wanted to love this cleanser, but I think my skin responds better to creamy cleansers. I wouldn't use it again, but for oilier skins or for use during the summer, this might be just perfect.

        Eucerin developed the perfect combination in its cleanser balancing humid summers and dry winters. I just hope they keep making this product for years to come. I've used many different face soaps, some too leaving an oily feel, but most others stripping too much natural oils. Eucerin's cleanser is truly worth a try if you're shopping around. It's the best I've found.

          I've used this product daily for many years and it is the BEST. It does not dry out your skin and effectively removes makeup - even eye makeup. I recommend it for anybody.

            I was in search, and losing hope, of finding a face wash that would not irritate my sensitive & eczema prone face. I was using Cetaphil, which worked great but I didn't feel like my face was clean and it was dull looking. Plus, being in my 40's, I was looking for a product to deal with fine lines. My friend found the Eucerin Q10 products and thought I should give them a try. After reading the reviews, I decided I would. Within a week of using the face wash, lotion & cream at night I couldn't believe the difference. No more red itchy spots and my skin was glowing. Even my husband noticed how much better my skin looked. So, I'm hooked and pray that these products stay around.

                  I love this product. i use the wash at night and it gets off 99% of my make up. There's a little residual mascara but I use an oil on them at bedtime and that takes care of it. In the morning I use the lotion and love that too. Eucerin products are just my favorite.

                    I don't know why all the product reviews disappeared for this product, but I'm re-writing my prior review.

                    This cleanser is the best cleanser I've ever found for sensitive skin. I've tried all the expensive stuff but this truly works.

                    I got this tip from an article on good skin care from a dermatologist in France: If I have makeup on, I rinse with warm water, use one pump distributed evenly on both hands, lightly rub all over my skin and my eyes where mascara and liner has been, then rinse. I do that quickly and lightly. Then I do a second quick wash and actually massage my skin. It removes every trace of makeup and leaves my skin clean without drying it out, and without any irritation. I have hyper-sensitive skin, so if you have sensitive skin, give this a try. I always stock up when it's on sale. Excellent cleanser!

                    I purchased this cleanser from a recommendation by a friend. And i also read all reviews for this product and wanted to give it a try. My skin is very sensitive, break out prone with rosacea. I really like the cleanser the first couple days using it, it really did calm the redness of my rosacea, and clearing up my bumps. Unfortunately, on my 2nd week, it started to dry out my skin, the redness came back, so as my bumps........I really want to like this because it seems very good at first, but......now I'm back to my Simple Refreshing Wash Gel, which is so far my skin acts the best with (after trying tons of cleansers ranging from drug store, [@], Department stores, and high-end brand names)...............

                      I use this product before and after shaving to help my sensitive skin with shaving bumps and irritation. It works well. It could be a little more fragrant, a manly smell.

                      Thought it would be a milky nourishing cleanser for dry skin, not as expected. It doesn't make skin feel moisturized for me. Will use the product when my skin isn't as dry in summer.
