Gentle cleanser does not remove makeup

This cleanser is wonderfully gentle and soothing for my sensitive, mildly-pink skin (rosacea), but it did virtually nothing to remove mineral makeup and sunscreen, even after three times trying. I’d consider using it just for mornings, when my face is already clean, but I can’t really be bothered with lots of different products.That said, this cleanser did not irritate my skin or turn it red, so it is an excellent option for Rosies. I did not use the wipe-off option because wiping a cotton pad across my skin is irritating, but it rinsed relatively easily.

Fast shipping but product ok

Product makes your skin smooth – I put it on when I showered – than rinsed even though it tells you not to. But for rosacea – didn’t work at all.

sensitive skin

Love this cleanser. In the mornings I use it with my Clarisonic. Picked it because of its rating on the EWG list but was glad to find that it was a good cleanser as well.

It’s reduced my rosacea symptoms

I love this stuff. It’s the best I’ve found so far for reducing my rosa era flare ups. It took a little getting used to because it’s creamier in consistency with no foaming and I have to use more than other La Roche-Posay and various cleansers I’ve used in the past, but the results are worth it when I use it religiously. I also find no need for creams or moisturizers in addition to this – so that helps the budget a lot.

Very gentle and soothing

I have sensitive skin that is also oily and subject to hormonal acne. I’ve been using theLa Roche-Posay Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream (125ml) 4.2 Fluid Ounce Tubefor a few years and really like it, but when I need a quick wash in the morning or on a day when I haven’t been wearing makeup, the Effaclar is a bit much. Although I’ve only been using the Toleraine cleanser for a few days, I really like it!This has no smell to it, and is very soothing to sensitive skin. It goes on as a milky cream, and you only need a small amount, so this bottle should last a really long time.It rinses off easily, but since it doesn’t seem to clean foundation very well, I use another cleanser beforehand on days when I wear makeup, and then this afterwards, in the Japanese “double cleansing” model.I’m impressed with La Roche-Posay’s products, and this is another nice one!

Must have for sensitive skin

I have an extremely sensitive skin, but this product works for me. It takes off eye makeups when used on a cotton ball. I have been using this product for a long time. You don’t need any moisturizer with this, just some serum after washing the face with this.
