It all starts with cleansing & this cleanser is the best. Takes off every drop of makeup, sweat, yet in winter it's just as wonderful to my sensitive skin.

Works well, non-irritating

I have been using the face wash for at least seven years and I have never switched. It works well to clean my face without irritating my skin.

Best Cleanser Ever

I have been using this product for a couple of years. My skin tone is normal and this gentle cleanser never leaves my skin dry or taut after using. This is the only face cleanser I will ever use from now on!

I have used this product for over 20 years and have passed it on to sisters and daughters - all of us very satisfied. So hoping the price and bottle size changes won't affect the wash as it did the renewal lotion.

Best make up remover

My cousin told me about this product years ago . It is fantastic and can remove any make up and especially mascara without stinging in one's eyes.I have recommended it to many friends.Leaves face clean and soft.

Best Face Wash Ever!

With the new name, I was concerned the face wash might have changed. No worries there! It is just as terrific as ever. My face always feels soft and clean. I have tried more expensive brands, but they can't hold a candle to Refreshing Face Wash! I am 60 and have used this for 25+ years.

the best!

This is the best face wash! It cleans effectively without drying and removes eye makeup. The alpha hydroxy acid exfoliates, combats acne, evens skin tone. It is great for every age skin.
