Retinol Anti-Aging Cream Cleanser
Anti-Aging Anti-Acne, gentle...
This cleanser does have EDTA & sulfates in it, but they are light, it barely foams & I love what retinol does for my skin. Other cleansers may let my skin break out every now & then but this one does NOT! It keeps my skin clear. I would buy it every month if it were not for the possible overuse of retinol, sulfates & EDTA on my skin. Retinol is great for anti-aging, in moderation & certain surfectants can be safe in low doses, but I have to give my skin a break from this type of cleanser. That's why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. It smells wonderful, its creamy & lasts a long time, also doesn't take much to cleanse. So this is great value. The day cream was a bit packed w/ sunscreens & parabens for my taste but it did work really well too. Retinol can thin skin out overtime so I would suggest just taking a break from it ever so often. Also another thing I noticed w/ this cleanser is that if u use it 2xs in a row it gives a sort of micro-dermabrasion effect leaving skin shiny, moisturize immediately after doing that however. :)

More than expected!
This is the first cleanser I've ever used that gets my skin squeaky clean without making it dry! Removes all makeup easily, totally cleanses my skin and my skin feels softer after cleansing...this has never happened before.
I love all items in this line, I started with Retinol serum...love it. Then I went to Retinol night cream....love it. Next will be the eye cream and day cream and I have no doubt I'll love them also.
I can't believe I've spent so much money in the past on skin care products claiming to work. This line is very reasonably priced and I see results within a few uses...rather than after a couple bottles as with the other lines.

Cleans and Renews!!!
After finding great joy with the Retinol day creme (with SPF 20,) I decided to try their cream cleanser. I don't currently need an anti-aging agent as I'm still very young; however, I have had severe acne problems since around the age of 10, including having to be put on Accutane for several months to remove cysts that made my skin appear burned, thus leaving a very uneven, dull skin tone behind.
With this cleanser, I felt how deep it went. No, it is not like other teenage or hip brands that rely on the selling of little beads that burst and clean your pores, rather, this cleanser is like liquid silk that that cleans and is very gentle on the face. And it washes off easily, which is always an on-the-go plus!

I absolutely love this cleanser!!! I've been using it regularly for two weeks and have seen a huge difference in my skin - it feels softer, firmer, has a smoother appearance, and I've even noticed an improvement in fine lines. I have sensitive skin and have had absolutely no negative reactions from using it, my experience has been only positive.
I will say that I don't know why the words "foaming" and "lather" are used in connection with this cleanser - it's more like a very thick, rich cream - like washing with a thick cold cream product. When you squeeze the bottle a small amount is dispensed, but that's okay because you don't need to use a whole lot to get great results, and that makes it a great value too!
