    Comments about Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme:

    This product was recommended to at Ulta. I have dry skin and needed something gentle. I love the smell and I like the way it feels after; however it does not remove foundation and forget eye makeup, that was a mess. I wanted to like it but will be returning it. Very pricey

          Comments about Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme:

          This face wash is basically a lotion that is supposed to gently clean your face, however, it is JUST a lotion that barely cleans your face. I had to use makeup remover afterward to get the rest of my makeup off, and I don't wear much, to begin with.

          I was at ULTA the other day buying foundation and I was putting different types all over my face and neck, at the makeup applying stations they had this bottle of cleansing cream, I decided why not and tried it. Immediately fell in love, I have combination skin and it left my skin balanced, soft, clean, makeup free, and smelled like coconuts. I love coconuts. Unfortunately I didn't get it that day because it was expensive; but I WILL be back to get it somehow because I need it in my life.

                Comments about Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme:

                There was an Exuviance event at my local Ulta the other day. I was aisles away looking at Mario Badescu skincare when an associate came and found me and talked me into trying out the products. I ended up buying this cleanser instead of the over $100 products they were trying to sell me. Even though I told them my skin was oily/combo, they did some kind of scan on my skin and convinced my skin was actually dry. I was skeptical, but decided to try this cleanser anyway. Well, I have used it twice and I don't like it at all. Does NOT remove eye makeup, as stated. Also, looks and feels like I have a layer of Vaseline all over my face even after thoroughly rinsing. Nope. Returning first chance I get.

                          We recommend seeking the advice of your physician before using any product with Retin A. Gentle Cleansing Creme can be used with other serums, as tolerated. We recommend trying Vespera Bionic Serum.

                          Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser would be a great choice for anyone with acne and rosacea. This foaming formula dissolves impurities such as makeup, dirt and excess oil and reduces bacteria that can trigger a breakout, while light conditioners including botanical Tea Tree Oil soothe and improve skin texture.

                          We recommend moistening hands and face then massaging the product onto your face and neck in an upward circular motion. Once you have massaged the product into your skin thoroughly, rinse with warm water to remove then pat dry skin.
