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.

      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.

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

          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.

            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!

                    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.

                            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.
