Comments about Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme:

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.

            Great cleanser for pm can also use am removes makeup & all impurities without leaving skin dry or stripped out feeling. Still recommend using eye makeup remover for mascara but it does remove any residue left over.

              I usually do not spend a lot of money on face washes etc but i purchased this at least 3 times already. My skin felt great after and i can notice a difference after i use this face wash. It is long lasting as i go back and forth with this face wash and Clinique.

                Comments about Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme:

                My mom was actually recommended this product by an employee in Ulta, due to her age and having dry/sensitive skin during the winter months. I myself have very sensitive skin and rosacea so I ended up buying it as well. It doesn't irritate my skin whatsoever which is awesome. It's very creamy and gentle and it works at removing make up as well, even hard to get off mascara. I do sometimes notice after I've cleansed, when applying my metrogel and lotion using a cotton ball, a little bit of leftover makeup from my face is on the cotton ball. Maybe I need to rub it into my skin a little harder while cleansing, I'm not sure. Still a great product though, just wish it wasn't so pricey!

                It's says it's supposed to take off your makeup but it's doesn't it soaks into my pores and doesn't take it off! I mostly use this when i'm not wearing makeup and it'll leave my skin feeling good and smooth.

                        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.
