If you're skeptical about purchasing this, PLEASE take what I'm saying into consideration.
I'm the definition of a budget buyer. Like, I've never owned a face wash other than Noxema and a few other Neutrogena, because my mom bought them for me when I was in high school and I just never switched. I have very clear skin, and I didn't think there really were any fixes for oily skin. I tried a few sample packs of face washes such as Olay, Aveeno, etc., but nothing worked. So for years I've just been watching my makeup basically melt off my face because my skin gets oily.
BUT THIS WORKS WONDERS. I went to ulta recently because I wanted to see if my makeup and skincare routine was the best plan for my skin, and the assistant walked me through many products. I was completely overwhelmed and then she suggested trying this product out. She said it's a great product and she swears by it, as she also has oily skin.
I've only been using this for a few days but my skin has completely changed. My makeup stayed on my face during: a 7am-5pm work shift, a 60 min tempo run, a 45 min lifting session. I will never buy another face wash.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to like it...
I'm very skeptical when it comes to skin care items, especially cleansers, that claim they're for all skin types... I have dry skin and my husband has more combination-oily skin.
We both tired out this cleanser and stopped using it for same and different reasons... His reason was, even though he liked how it made his face feel nice and smooth, he noticed he started getting a lot of blackheads. Something he doesn't normally deal with except on his nose.
The reasons I stopped using it, is because not only did I also start getting blackheads, but it was starting to make my skin feel too dry. Initially, yes, I loved how smooth is made my skin feel, but the more I used it, the more I felt like either it's not cleaning my face well enough or it's stripping my skin. Either way, that can cause blackheads and break-outs... black heads are just dead skin and sebum. If this cleanser isn't cleaning my face like it should and leaving a film, then that could cause blackheads and breakouts. And if it's stripping my skin, then that would cause my skin to become more dry, imbalanced, and create more oil, which again, would equal to blackhead and breakouts.
So, we both stopped using it, and I have decided to go with a cleanser that is specifically for dry skin.
Reviewed by 567 customers Doesn't remove makeup
AB from MD
I wasn't impressed by this. I used it as a second step after makeup removers. It didn't give me a deep clean and definitely doesn't remove makeup or residue. If you don't use any makeup, skin care or sunscreen and need something slightly more effective than water then this is for you. If you need a clean face skip this.
BEL from NJ
I really want it to try this cleanser but reading the ingredients it does have alcohol and it is on the top of the list because I have mild to moderate face Rosacea, this is one of the ingredients I must stay away.
Ang from IL
I am really enjoying the FAB line. This cleanser is non abrasive on my sensitive skin. I use in the am to wash off either my FAB retinal or my FAB AHA in the am. I use at night to clean face and take off my makeup. My face does feel a little tight but this is by no means over trying. I follow with either Retinal or AHA, once dry I put on the coconut gel lotion. I have dry skin I know gels are better for oily skin but this absorbs so quickly I love it.
THIS CLEANSER GAVE ME THE WORST ACNE EVER do not recommend
cow from FL
I had to wear makeup for once in like 3 months to cover the acne this product gave me
Made me break out
M from Las Vegas
I was really excited to try this product but it made me break out
In just one week I saw results !
Summer from Georgia
Within a week I saw results. The texture of my skin is visibly more softer and the feel is softer. I bought the travel kit with the cleanser, pads, sunscreen, and hydrating cream. I used each 2x a day in the morning and night.
Truly the best for sensitive skin!
Whit from California
I have tried SO many cleansers over the years. Some kinda worked but I never found anything that was the one for me. A few months ago I purchased a kit and instantly fell in love. I waited for my skin to break out like it always does with new products - it never did. Not only did I not break out, my skin completely cleared up and I don't get crazy breakouts all the time anymore. I have switched to 100% FAB routine and finally feel comfortable in my own skin.
Love this face wash
Kfeci781 from Plymouth, MA
I bought a small kit back in may to give this brand a try. And I have to say that I'm in love! I have tried so many different brands for my sensitive skin and nothing ever worked. This not only cleared my skin of acne but the redness and dryness as well. Makes my face feel so soft.
Have been using for years
AllyF from San Diego, CA
I love first aid beauty because they're cruelty free, affordable, and everything I've ever tried works great. This cleanser really works and doesn't dry my skin out. It's fragrance free which I prefer.
furelisemelody from Savannah
I have bought this at least 5 times. I personally use this to wash off my makeup and it gets it all off without stripping my skin. will continue to buy!!
Very good wash for summer or winter
Maria from Berkshires, MA
This face wash is very effective for my greasy skin but never leaves me feeling dry and tight even if I use it twice to get all the sunscreen/makeup off. It was recommended by a dermatologist (Dr. Dray in YouTube) because it does not contain fragrance or other irritating ingredients and also doesn't strip your skin of its natural protective moisture barrier.
Snowbum from Fort Collins, CO
I use this as a precleanse because it removes my makeup, dirt and oil very effectively, then I follow with Tula purifying cleanser to get rid if residue and deep clean to improve my acne.
Favorite gentle cleanser
Sal P from Nc
This is my daily morning and night cleanser! I do still use an acne cleanser every few days but this cleanser is gentle enough for everyday use. I first go in with a cleansing balm, rinse that off, and this removes any excess residue!
Perfect for sensitive skin
Kelly from USA
I struggle with finding face cleansers that don't leave my skin irritated. This has been exactly what I've been looking for. My skin feels clean afterwards. I have a bit of redness on my cheeks and it doesn't irritate them at all. I will for sure purchase this again.
This is a product I will always rebuy
K from Dallas
It's a great all around cleanser
Love love love
Bri from Bowling Green, KY
I switched from Neutrogena grapefruit cleanser to this one and I'm never going back! This product always makes my skin feel so soft and smooth after I use it and it doesn't feel the least bit harsh or irritating. I have dry skin and it doesn't feel like it strips my skin; rather it cleans gently and effectively. Additionally, my skin has been clearing up more and more recently and while I did also switch to a new moisturizer, I think this product is part of the reason. I Like the foamy consistency and a little goes a long way so the product lasts for quite a while. The smell is pretty neutral and comparable to Dove soap. Overall, using this cleanser has been a great experience!
Works and goes very far
Coriakin from PA
Suggested by a girl at the McKnight Rd Pittsburgh location, and it's lovely.
Had pimples immediately after 1 use
Belle from Spring,TX
I bought this cleanser like 8 months ago and it's still sitting in my cabinet. When i say this cleanser broke me out ! It broke me out foreal. It's very very drying like over drying and i had pimples appear literally the next day after using it. I tried it for a week or more and my face just kept breaking out with pimple ! And i rarely get pimples. As soon as i stopped using it immediately my skin calmed down and returned to normal, then i found a new brand (peach and Lilly gel cleanser)...For how expensive this is it's such a bad face wash and to claim it's for sensitive skin is crazy because it's literally the worst face wash i have ever purchased.
Miranda from Fort Collins
I love this cleanser. I bought a travel size to test it out then bought the full size. It is a little pricey for what it is but I love the unique texture. It's a gel cleanser but it's also creamy and lathers up a little. I have normal skin but I'm very sensitive so I appreciate that it doesn't have fragrance and doesn't irritate me whatsoever. It also pairs really nicely in a double cleanse.
The best facial cleanser for sensitive and oily skin
Jenny from Chicago IL
This product is AMAZING. I have oily/sensitive skin with harsh chemicals and this product works so well removing any dirt or makeup from my face and it does not irritate my skin.
FAB Face Cleanser
Anne from Hanover PA
I scrub my face with FAB face cleanser and a loofah before i wash my hair. It cleanses and exfoliates but doesn't irritate sensitive skin.
I have been using this for almost 2 years
Izzy from San Antonio, TX
Ever since I've used this cleanser, my skin stays perfectly clear! I no longer have issues with dryness (even in the winter) and it's perfect for sensitive skin.
It's Ok but it depends on your skin type
Nikki from New York
I feel like this cleanser is very remnicient of the one in the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench line so if you liked that one you'd love this one.
BUT, personally, for my dehydrated combo skin I felt that this cleanser didn't do enough. It doesn't clean my skin to a satisfactory level and it's more like the Cerave Hydrating Cleanser in terms of how it leaves your skin feeling, but I can argue the Cerave leaves a more clean feeling.
This would be a great cleanser if your skin is really sensitive and you want a hydrating cleanser because your skin is super dry [or if you're dehydrated leaning dry in the winter time] but otherwise save your money and get the Cerave, you get 13 oz of product at nearly half the price.
Definitely will buy this product again.
Slim from Florida
I have a really bad rosacea, and I can say this is the only thing that had made my face better.
So Drying (Please Read If You Struggle With Dry Skin)
Morgan from Louisiana
I would not recommend this cleanser. I was hopeful and searching the web for the best cleanser and this one had really good reviews. I have struggled with dry skin in the past, but not super bad for awhile. The first night I used this, I was incredibly hopeful because it made my skin feel so soft. Immediately after that, things went downhill. My skin has become so dry. I use one of the best moisturizers on the market, and it can't even fix the dry patches that this product gives me. My skin flakes all over and makes my skin look so dull and my acne scars are even more noticeable because of the dryness. I would not recommend for anyone that has ever struggled with dry skin. This is supposed to be a gentle cleanser, but somehow has managed to completely strip my skin. I am disappointed because I need to use it until it's gone to get my money's worth, but after that, I am never looking back and trying something new. I was really let down and hate leaving bad reviews on products, but I am hoping my dry skin guys and gals come across this and choose to stay away from this product. I am sure this works for others, but this was just my experience. :)
