Comments about Garnier SkinActive The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser:

I don't hate it, but I've used better. Has an odd smell that's off putting and if you happen to get it in your eyes it will burn like the pits of h-e double hockey sticks. Does not remove eye makeup such as mascara or eyebrow gel (if youre heavy duty like me) I mostly bought this because I'm allergic to sulfates, but I think I'll go more expensive next time.

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser:

    I had never tried this line of skin care and I am really pleased so far. My previous face wash left my face red and felt harsh (expensive, name brand). Using the SkinActive The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser I feel like I can remove all my make-up and any other product without scrubbing. I paired this with the SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream. My face feels so fresh after using this duo, I would definitely recommend purchasing these if you are a budget buyer or not.

        I love this. I bought it as an temporary solution until my fancy schmancy face wash came in.
        I have acne prone skin, especially around my chin (which I have been told is hormonal) and blackheads all in my t zone. This made such a difference in my face and acne. Love it

          Comments about Garnier SkinActive The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser:

          I'm both a brand buyer and a budget buyer. Garnier's Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser performs as good as Philosophy's Purity Made Simple and I prefer Garnier because it foams and is super effective. I purchased one bottle, tried it, was blown away by how great it works and went back and purchased 4 more (on sale for just under $9.00!!). I have extremely dry skin and this has no negative effect on my skin since my moisturizer takes care of that, no matter what cleanser I use.

              For a foaming cleanser it is pretty gentle to sensitive and problem skin that I have tried. The cream cleanser just don't seem to do the best at cleansing the pores.

                Ok it's only my second time washing my face with this cleanser but so far both times it left my skin dry. Maybe I just have to get used to it but I hope I see a difference and enjoy it like everyone else does.

                  I bought this on a whim but I love it. A tiny pump is enough to clean my whole face and it doesn't leave me feeling sticky or oily.

                    Comments about Garnier SkinActive The Gentle Sulfate-Free Cleanser:

                    I've been looking for an affordable makeup remover cleanser and found it! Better than the neutrogena and olay cleansers I've used that need me having to wash my face twice and still have raccoon eyes. This requires one wash, minimal scrubbing, non-drying, odorless, no ingredients you want. What more can you ask for? I feel Like I need to buy it in bulk in case it gets discontinued Btw ulta's price on it is the most I've come across. Even my local supermarket ralphs had it cheaper.

                      I have combination skin (very oily T-zone, dry cheeks in winter). I'm having trouble of finding a cleanser that works and sticking to it. Will this cleanser be good for everyday use, and reduce my constant white heads and breakouts on my forehead ??
