do you know if this is a soap-free cleanser? also how well does it remove make up? I LOVE aloe based products!e
woohoo!! im going to try this when I run out of my normal cleanser!!! thanks for the heads up!Yes, it's soap free!!! I am very, very, very picky!!! I was psyched to find this. It does not strip your face at all, it doesn't feel dry. Aloe is one of the first few ingredients in it, as well! All the properties of aloe remain in tact in the cleanser the way they make it.
I second this - my skin is pretty sensitive as well and LaRoche Posay's Toleriane line has been a godsend!The biggest thing I've done to help my sensitive skin is to completely eliminate any products with salycilic acid and sodium laureth sulfate in them. Sodium laureth sulfate is a lathering agent that is in a TON of stuff including shampoos and toothpastes. Of course I can't do without shampoo but I make sure I rinse my body and face very thoroughly after coming into contact with shampoo. Also I noticed lots of breakouts on my chin and realized that sometimes slopping toothpaste there was causing the problem.
I use LaRoche Posay Toleraine's skin care line. The foaming cleanser is really good and does not irritate my skin. It is pricey but a little goes a long way so it lasts forever. I purchase mine in Canada where it is a little bit cheaper.
I also use Neutrogena dry touch sunscreen. My skin is oily, sensitive and I have rosacea, so I have to be careful about ANY chemicals.
When I need moisture especially around my eyes I use a tiny bit of La Mer cream in that area. For those who swear by Cetaphil cleanser, be careful. It's loaded with sodium laureth sulfate as well.
^ITA!try Cetaphil cleanser it really works for me and it doesn't dry out my skin
