    My husband and I use this cleanser everyday. I use it to remove make-up and it works great. It really cleans my skin without the harsh chemicals. My husband uses it to remove dust and dirt from working in the warehouse all day. He has very sensitive skin and eczema and it works great for him. I was really shocked that drugstore.com carries it. I was buying it from my local healthfood store and spending about twice as much.

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      I have many allergies and also have sensitive, oily skin w/large pores. This is a great product geared for oily/large pored skin and yes it burns some (see algae is high in salt - it's going to burn some) as it penetrates into your pores or acne areas. I'm 50 yrs old and still getting those. This is a product that I can use with all my allergies and with sensitive skin. It even balances out and softens my dry ares.

      If bunring or tingling skin bothers you because of the product's natural algae salt content then this is not the product for you.

      I like this product. I have roseacea and it is very gentle on my skin, my skin feels clean and fresh and it does not burn or irritate my skin. I work in the medical field. And upon doing a ton of investigation for skin care products for sensitive skin I decided to try this product. Now, I won't use anything else. Kudos ZIA...

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      If I could rate this product a 0 I would. I got this as a present several weeks ago and couldnt wait to use it. I should have kept waiting... it burned my skin, and made my face beet red. At the time, I assumed it was a weird 'first time' reaction. Then I tried it again the next day. This time it burned even worse. I would never recommend this stuff.

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      I'm so frustrated... I looked long and hard for the right cleanser, and the original formulation of this product was IT. No parabens in it (no, the previous formula of this product didn't have them either), gentle - really effective. Zia changed a bunch of their products to remove parabens - but there was no apparent reason to change this one. The new formula burns my skin - look at all the new chemical ingredients in it! No more Zia products for me and now I have to search yet again.

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      I, too, am highly disappointed in this new formula. The old formula was the ONLY product I could find that worked on my rosacea. Now my rosacea is back worse than before! Zia, why would you change something that worked so well already?? I am done with Zia products unless they return the old formula. So sad to lose such a great product.

      I have been reading the reviews of the new formula and don't agree. Have been using this cleanser for a month and haven't seen any redness or had any burning. This is one of the nicest cleansers I've ever used!

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      I would rather have the parabens back in the formula than have this new one that STINGS like the dickens. The new formula is awful and burns like mad. Didn't they have anyone test this stuff? I have used the old formula for years and it was a lifesaver, but this new stuff is making me burn and feel betrayed. I trusted it enough to recommend to patients. Not now or ever again will I do that. What were they thinking?!?

      Comments about Zia Skin Basics Fresh Cleansing Gel with Sea Algae, 8.3 fl oz:

      I too was a huge fan of the old formula. It did wonders for my skin and was very gentle. I ordered the new formula, thinking surely they would not change it that much. Boy was I wrong! The redness returned right away. I still tried to have faith in the product, so when my boyfriend got another tattoo, I knew he needed something gentle to clean his arm, so I gave him the cleansing gel (new formula). Within seconds of applying it, he was almost screaming in pain! This is a man who experiences no pain getting tattoos! I felt so awful... we had to rinse it right away with cool water and only then did his pain subside. Big mistake, Zia! I don't know what you were thinking... my trust in this product is zero and will never purchase or recommend this new formula again.

      This is a far inferior version of the previous one - I recommend trying to find the old formula online somewhere. Don't waste your time with this one. It stings, and if you read the ingredients, there are a bunch of new chemicals in it. BAD IDEA, Zia - what would make you change such a great product? I have moved on.
