Most Helpful Positive Review Great
Love Aveeno products in general, but this one is something special! Such gentle, nourishing care for my skin. I love to wash my face mornings and nights with it, as my skin is very sensitive, tthis really helps not to irritate it, not harsh, but such a gentle cleaning. Great smell and doesn't require much of a product. I love it! Totally recommend!
Most Helpful Critical Review Close but not exact replacement to ulta calming cleanser
I tried this new release when I saw that Aveeno discontinued the ultra calming hydrating cleanser. The calming version has been a staple in my routine and I'm sad to no longer see it on the shelves. Every cleanser is one of a kind and no two people respond the same. My review of this latest version is mixed. The scent is barely noticeable which is a plus for any sensitive product. This one is milkier, less of a surfactant and more like a cleansing serum. I can't decide if I associate a slight stripped feeling to a higher level of cleanliness but this one is definitely more mild. If you're looking for that squeaky clean sensation you are not going to find it in this cleanser. I can see how this might work for very dry skin in a cold climate but I'm not sure I'll get used to this product.

Bryn from Oklahoma
This made my skin so soft! Usually I prefer foaming consistency, but this came with such good results I don't even mind. It also left my skin feeling clean but not stripped. I wore a pretty heavy sunscreen and it worked very well getting it off! Super happy!
bv from Bakersfield
I love the consistency, that's about it. The formula is AWFUL. I have dry, sensitive skin and somehow this dried my skin out even more. If you have my skin type or eczema, I don't recommend this!
I also broke out overnight:(
I will repurchase
rz from Ellington ct

I will buy this product again
GZ from Ohio
I'm using this to wash my face once a day. It makes your skin very soft and has cleared the dry patches.
Wish I could give this product -5 stars
C from Fort Wayne, Indiana
This product literally ruined my face. I'm still recovering from it 6 months later. I want to cry looking at my face as I've NEVER had acne. I'm breaking out so bad everywhere and it's leaving horrible scarring, I honestly just can't believe it
Waste Of Money!!!!
SL47 from Fayetteville
I have very sensitive skin, and rosacea. Almost all beauty products burn my skin. I really like two of the Aveeno lotions, so I thought I would try this face wash. It does not make my face burn, but it left my face moisturizer behind on my face. I dried my face and looked in the mirror and I had white residue all over my face from where it left my moisturizer behind. So I had to wash my face a second time using my Dove bar soap. This stuff is a waste of money!!!
Natasha from USA
There's something about the way this cleanser feels on the skin that makes the experience of cleansing so nice. It feels like a creamy, cooling, and soothing gel. This is a non-foaming cleanser that definitely doesn't leave my face feeling as dry traditional foaming products do. People with sensitive or dehydrated skin will probably want to check this one out. I also like to use it to wash my hands when they feel too dry.
If you wear a full face of makeup, you'll definitely need to double cleanse with an oil or a balm before using this as your second cleanser, because it won't get rid of all that grime on its own. If you don't wear makeup or maybe you only have to remove sunscreen, you can probably skip a first cleanse and just use this on its own.
great gentle cleanser

was looking for a extremely gentle cleanser while using a retinol prescribed cream, and this cleanser has calmed my irritation and redness and sensitivity I have been experiencing. love this cleanser and would recommend
I Always Come Back To This
N.P. from Silverdale, WA
When I first tried this it was a tad off-putting. We are not used to cleansers that mimic more of a cream & have zero foaming to it. I have grown to love this cleanser because it's nourished & healed my skin when my skin barrier was compromised. Many are unaware but barrier acne is a thing; it's a reaction to your skin not being properly hydrated/nourished. When I started getting what I suspected was barrier acne, I ditched the foaming soap & picked this up & my skin thrived. In the evenings we all, or most of us, should be double cleansing. If you do that with a good/proper oil cleanser or balm & then follow with this, you should be properly cleansed. Also, we're not all used to feeling like we have a film on our face after rinsing & with this particular cleanser I had to get used to that because that layer, the natural oils/lipids, are great for our skin or for those who tend to be dry or normal so it's actually healthier than we realize. Side Note: Whenever I have a raw area from an open wound or really inflamed area & I go over with this cleanser, I do feel a warm/tingly sensation so I can see where severely dry skin users will claim that this burned their face but that unfortunately the case with many formulas if you go over sensitive/opened skin. Patch test alway.
My face loves this: Never discontinue pls!!!
Outtybaby from Fort Myers
This cleanser and the serum is the best duo. I use the gel moisturer only a few times a week but I use the wash and serum everyday. This cleanser is the first cleanser that doesn't leave my face dry, tight, or irritated/burning. Please do not discontinue my skin had been the best it has ever been in 17 years. It healed my acne and has stopped the outbreaks. I have tried all types of "acne" products from various price ranges. I have combimation and sensitive skin which makes product testing a nightmare. I'm glad I stumbled upon an article which suggested forgoing acne products if you have sensitive skin and go for products designed for sensitive skin and that is what lead me to this particular line from Aveeno keep these products for ever they are a godsend and a true game changer. Less is truly more.
Stopped itchy dry skin it it's tracks
JennD from CT
Wow! Winter skin is a real thing. Where I live, the climate just got colder and the sensitive skin on my face, especially around my nose and mouth become very itchy and dry. I have tried several cleansers, but this cleanser was nourishing and calming to the skin on my face. I was about to call my dermatologist, however, after one use, I am feeling the relief. Worth a try
What is this!?
J. Yang from Wilmington, NC
I love trying new cleanser as my skin is not sensitive and does well to trying new products. But y'all ,what is this!? This is not a cleanser. It does absolutely nothing for my face, not even cleansing! I had to go in with another cleanser. Not worth the try. Next please, Aveeno.
Domenique from Patterson
This make me break out SO bad my skin has never looked worse before been using for awhile because I thought I'd take some getting used to but no 0/10
zimmert from Cincinnati
I bought this cleanser because I have always liked Aveeno products, it was fragrance free, and for sensitive skin. It is the worst cleanser I have ever used. I had to rewash my face with Olay cleanser to clean and condition my skin.
Chemo-Friendly, Soothing Skincare
mjames322 from Lake In The Hills, IL
I have never had sensitive or dry skin. I usually have extremely oily, cystic acne prone skin. I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and started chemo and was not prepared for how drastically and quickly my skin would change within a matter of days.
It's very difficult to find products that work for the rashes associated with chemo because they look like acne, but your skin is very dry, which makes the rash worse. I researched for skin calming moisturizers and found this line. I purchased this with the restore and calm serum and moisturizer and within a day, my irritation began soothing and within a week, the rash was almost completely gone!
My skin looks and feels moisturized, less irritated, smoother, and less textured. My makeup blends well right over. Wonderful product for sensitive, irritated skin.
Surprised how much I love it
Markie. from Tx.
This doesn't lather or even suds at all, which I like. I'm in my mid 20's and the older I get I more I like soap free cleansers. This doesn't strip or dry out my skin at all. I'm oily and I'm prone to acne but this doesn't make me look oilier or even break me out. It's also seemed calmed some of the facial redness I get. Important to note that this isn't a makeup remover, in my opinion. I tried it on a very light natural makeup day and it barely removed anything. But for a light cleanse in the morning or at night on a bare face, it's perfect.
julia from north carolina
I like this product because it is one of the only cleansers that doesn't bother my skin. It doesn't dry my skin out which is really great! Overall I would recommend this!
Doesn't remove makeup

Doesn't Clean Well
Hbananas89 from CA
Wanted to try a new cleanser and picked this up. Feels soft and gentle but leaves a residue and doesn't actually clean your makeup off. I've even tried two passes with this and still has to use a micellar water to get my eye makeup off - I don't even wear much beside a neutral eye and mascara (not waterproof).
I was so excited
Nightowl from West New York
I was so excited to try this out because I've used other Aveeno products and loved it but this one started burning the minute I put it on my face. It made it red and itchy I didn't even got to try the moisturizer or oil .
Stay away from it
AndyG from Orlando
I have oily dehydrated skin and this make me breakout terribly! A lot of small bumps on my cheeks that instantly disappeared when I stop using it.
