I received a sample size of this from a friend who works at a dermatology office. I have moderate adult acne and use 3% Differin gel with a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide wash (also Neutrogena) as prescribed by my derm. If I use these products together any more than 3 times a week, my skin is irritated, red, dry, and flaky. So I have to find a gentle cleanser for the really sensitive days. I've tried just about EVERY product there is, and this is the only one that has ever NOT made me break out in the interim between using my acne RX.

It leaves my skin feeling very clean and not dry or irritated. The scent is a barely noticeable lemony fragrance (I personally like fragranced products, but I understand why some people don't). My only complant is that the bottle says you should lather it in your hands before applying, but I can't make this happen unless I use a large amount (over a quarter-size) and mix with a drop of water; otherwise there's not enough to cover my face.

The best part, though? It removes my long-wear foundation; the proof is in the makeup-colored water droplets in the sink basin! I've never used a cleanser that removed makeup so well, especially without stripping my skin or irritating it.

I unfortunately can't speak for how it does as a daily cleanser for more than a few days at a time because of my acne regimen that I'm afraid to quit, but it works great for my needs.

I bought this product locally when I was having an outbreak of eczema on my face, along with other Neutrogena eczema products. Although it didn't make the problem worse, I think I would have been better off using my old cleanser, Aveeno Ultra-calming Foaming Cleanser which I've used for years with no incident. (It was a new face cream that set off the eczema, which I immediately discontinued.) The other Neutrogena eczema products are what fixed my skin. I found this cleanser thick (but clear) and hard to rinse off. I was especially put off by the fragrance. Like other reviewers, I do not understand why they would pare down the ingredients to make a healthier product for sensitive skin, then turn around and add fragrance? I will use up this product, alternating with my Aveeno cleanser, but will not buy this again.

    Best face wash. It takes all my eye makeup and cleans my skin without over drying it. This is a huge bottle for such a great price. I would recommend this for people who have sensitive skin. It is nice it foams up too!

            Comments about Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

            I bought the product because I have sensitive skin, and I was looking for a good gentle cleanser. However, when I first smelled the cleanser, it was much more perfumed that I would have wanted. After using the product my face was red and irritated, and just felt burned. That doesn't usually happen to me. I think this stuff is much too strong to be called "gentle".

              Comments about Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser, 12 fl oz:

              I chose it b/c the price was great and b/c of the name. I mean, I used Neutrogena 25 yrs ago in high school and just didn't think I would like the Cetaphil.
              It is easy to pump out and whip into a foam. It glides over my sensitive/combination skin and rinses beautifully. My skin does not feel tight after rinsing, there is no residue and no makeup left behind-except some mascara but that is what eye makeup remover is for. I am only left with clean skin. I will say I read the reviews after I bought it and I was a little apprehensive. I saw where others complained about the smell of this product and I almost took it back! I am highly sensitive to scents and I have to say it may not be a scent I would want to spray around my house but to me it isn't offensive and goes away once my face is rinsed. Since I started using this product I have had no irritation, my skin looks brighter and I know it is clean. I may write a follow up when the bottle is about empty. For now though, I am pleased with what looks to be my finally finding a facial cleanser I want to use every night.

                  Seriously Neutrogena? You market this to people with sensitive skin but then add cheap smelling fragrance? My skin definitely doesn't react well to any kind of harsh fragrance on my skin. I bought into the ads Neutrogena is putting out comparing it to Cetaphil (which is genuinely fragrance free), so definitely my fault - I should have looked more closely. But still, you would think if you're going to market it for sensitive skin - you may want to look into what generally irritates sensitive skin.

                    In my opinion this cleanser is very similar to Cetaphil, only better. It foams alittle during cleansing, leaves a nice clean feeling & I did not experience irritation or dryness. It did a fantastic job removing make-up too. I've always felt that Cetaphil left a film/residue behind after cleansing - a not so clean feeling. This cleanser rinses cleanly and your face will feel clean & refreshed. It's a great gentle daily cleanser that thoroughly cleans & does not strip the skin. Like it alot & will repurchase.
