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.

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.

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

    Finally a cleanser that is inexpensive, removes sunscreen or makeup and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. just wish it was fragrance free although it is apparently not a lot since it doesn't cause my rosacea to flare up.

    Yeah, I have oily skin and it does absolutely nothing for me. Also have some acne around my temples that it doesn't help with either. However, my mother has normal skin and uses it.

      I love this gentle wash for my skin. I was using another Neutrogena face wash product and it was drying my skin out. This does a good cleansing job without any drying whatsoever - and I just love the very subtle refreshing fragrance.

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

        I'm surprised to hear from a few that this product smells bad? I think just the opposite. It has a very fresh, clean smell and I absolutely love it! I initially bought this for my daughters who were 10 and 12 at the time. I wanted something gentle they could use daily. I loved the fresh, clean smell after they used it. In fact, I was using an 'Origins' cleanser and decided to try the Ultra Gentle by Neutrogena. Loved it! ...and have not gone back to the Origins cleanser I was using. I would say I have normal skin. Unlike a lot of other cleansers that leave your skin with a tight or dry feeling, this does not. It was developed for sensitive skin and it probably works for most people with sensitive skin but not all since there are levels of sensitive skin. The fragrance used is very light and in fact, the very last ingredient. Again, I love the slight fragrance in this cleanser...and I love the way this cleanser leaves my skin feeling. This is the absolute best cleanser I have ever used...and the price is right!

        I use Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser to wash my face morning and evening. It's an excellent cleanser. It leaves my skin soft and clean, without a dry or tight feeling. The only problem is that I sometimes have dry areas on my face, but I use moisturizer to resolve that problem. Unlike other cleansers I have used (which were more expensive, I might add), this cleanser doesn't cause breakouts or skin irritation.

            Don't usually post comments unless a product is really bad, or really good. This one is really bad. It's not gentle- has frangrance added, and left my skin tight and smelling like perfume. I acutualy had to wash my face with anothet product after to get the smell off.

                My older (48 yo) skin is combination/oily and acne prone. Many of the acne skin cleansers are just too irritating and drying for me. However, this product, gets the job done (removing makeup/oil) without leaving my face tight. I'm not a fan of it's smell, which isn't bad, but otherwise this product is perfect for those who are looking for a gentle cleanser for oily/acne prone skin.

                    Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser

                     – Thoroughly remove dirt, excess oil and makeup residue from your skin without disrupting its natural balance with Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser. The dermatologist-developed formula works in a new, skin-friendly way, without leaving the skin dry or clogging the pores. Simply massage onto wet skin, allow the foaming formula to lift off the detritus of the day and rinse off, for clean, soft and great-looking skin.

                    Gentle Enough For Every Day



                    This cleanser is formulated to deliver the best of gentle with the best of clean. Although it is designed for the most delicate sensitive skin - it can be used on complexions suffering from the effects of acne, eczema and rosacea. The patented technology provides a fast, simple, effective means of removing the daily build-up of materials from the skin. The non-stripping formula does not leave a residue. It is free of soap, dye and oils. The pleasant, natural scent comes from a hypoallergenic fragrance that is free of potentially irritating essential oils. The non-comedogenic, non-greasy formulation keeps the skin free of particles deposited from the environment, removes excess oil from the pores and foams away what makeup removers miss.

                    Part of the Neutrogena Family of Cleansers



                    Emanuel Stolaroff had already been supplying beauty salons serving the film industry in California for more than 20 years when he discovered Neutrogena in 1954. It had been developed by the Belgian cosmetic chemist Dr. Edmond Fremont, with a patented formula that was at once both effective and gentle to the skin. It became an instant success when it was introduced into the United States, but it didn’t end there. For more than half a century, Neutrogena - the company changed its name to honor its leading product - has been developing still more effective, even gentler formulas to cleanse skin without disturbing its natural, healthy balance.
