Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
Whenever I use harsher, non-TBS cleansers, my face often stings or feels raw. This line feels so gentle but gets the job done. I use other products when I am having a breakout, but this is what I use before bed every night!

Great Gentle Creamy Cleanser!
I bought this aloe cleanser along with the aloe soothing face lotion and the seaweed pore perfecter for my sensitive, red skin with big pores on my cheeks and nose. This aloe cleanser is great if you live in dry, cold weather for most of the year. I have been using it for a little over a month and it has helped to even out the redness on my face and does remove oils and makeup effectively without drying my face out. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was because, in my experience, it is not something you would use in the summer months if you have oily/combo skin, I went on vacation down south where it was 80 degrees and humid, and I broke out so badly,This cleanser is not for acne, and I think in the summer months I will have to get the seaweed cleanser for something that has a deeper clean. Other than that, it has worked great for my sensitive, red, combo skin!

Perfect for Accutane Users
I bought this when I started using accutane, knowing my skin was going to be severely dry and it's been such a life saver. It's extremely soothing and doesn't irritate or dry my skin more than it already is from the medication. Plus, I do feel that it truly does clean my skin, it doesn't leave a residue behind and leaves my face very smooth. If you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, or even worse, are on accutane, this is the staple face wash you need by your sink.

My Sensitive Skin LOVES this Line
I cannot tell you how thankful I am for the entire Body Shop Aloe skin care line. My worst fear is that they will stop making it and I'll have to start my search once again for products I can use on my super-sensitive, reactive skin. I know this is supposed to be a review of the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser but this review goes for the entire Aloe line. All of the products are super gentle. After checking the ingredients list, I see that there is not one single ingredient that is considered "reactive" to sensitive skin--meaning none of the ingredients are harsh or stripping or contain fragrance or other potential irritants. Believe me, I've done my research over the years since I get occasional rosacea and my skin reacts horribly to so many ingredients in all of the expensive, medical or high-end skin care lines. So, this line (and this cleanser) are constants on my bathroom counter. I use nothing else but these products on my skin. My skin is also prone to acne breakouts on the nose and chin. No breakouts with these products. They do not contain pore-clogging oils and are truly non-acnegenic as far as I'm concerned. If you order the sample kit as I originally did, you may well become addicted to this line. If you are like me, and have searched high and low for a great line of products that won't aggravate sensitive skin, I think you will find this line your "miracle" cure. At least I did. As for the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser, it is super gentle and works beautifully to cleanse the skin of makeup, oil and dirt. At night, when cleansing is the most important, I use this cleanser and then follow up with the Aloe Gentle Facial Wash. I like to use both so that my skin is thoroughly cleansed. In the morning I use only one of the cleansers, depending on whether I feel I want a creamy cleanser or a foaming one. Enjoy these products!!
