What's your face wash?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I used to be able to wash my face with just normal soap, then moisturize...but lately I need more than that...I need something new and I was considering the Nature's Cure brand of face care.
Does anyone else use it?
How about Proactive?
What's your opinion on the different kinds you've used, what kind is your favorite/ works the best for you?

I use Oil of Olay Dual Action Cleanser + Toner. It's amazing!!! It's soo gentle on my skin and keeps my face looking great!!!


I also use St. Ives Apricot Scrub once a week to exfoliate my face

I have Rosacea, so I have to be pretty careful. I use Clean & Clear Sensitive foaming wash at night, and Purpose in the morning. Currently I'm trying a sample of Clean & Clear Morning Burst with Shine control, but probably won't buy a big bottle of it. It's a little too perfumey for me.

Proactiv is not on my list of favorite facial washes...I tried it for a week, and shortly after that I developed the rosacea. It started with a reaction to the Proactiv, then never went away.

I have mild/occasionally moderate acne and I used Pro-activ for awhile and I didn't like it. It didn't really make a difference, bleached my towels, and dried my skin/lips out. Now, I use Neutrogena Acne Stress Control (has micro beads) with the day lotion and overnight lotion. Since I started using the stress stuff, I haven't noticed any breakouts. I think it also helps to take vitamins.

I use clinique products, but if my skin is really dry and sensitive I use Epiderm, which is like a Parrafin soap, great for dry skin.

I use this:


I've been using this microfiber wash cloth for about a month or so & its cleared up my skin better than ANY product I've tried! I dont have to use a special soap or cleanser, just water! I swear by it- my face has never been so clear before! I've never had a problem with acne before, but my skin is softer & a lot better now!

I have eczema & really sensitve skin, so I've never found a product that doesn't dry out my skin or make me break out awfully, so this is a dream come true for me!

Whoa!...sounds like Pro-Active is a no go. Which is good because it was WAY expensive.

I like the idea of Nature's cure because it includes: A pill/vitamin to regulate acne from within and a cream for the skin. I don't know if they have a face wash though...

If anyone has used it, let me know!

Simple foaming facial wash.

No perfume or colouring added

I've actually had pretty good luck with Proactiv. It's worked well and made my face smooth and clear. A con I would say, though, is that if I washed my face regularly for a while and missed one session I would break out immediately. :/
I use a certain sort of mint mask, which I prefer to the Proactiv, and it makes my face feel great and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

I use Vichy's cleansing milk. I have used proactive in the past. It worked really well for about 6 months and then it just seemed to stop working for me.

BAH I say to Proactiv. I used it religously for months and still had really bad breakouts. I'm a huge fan of anything Oil of Olay related. Also I recently started using Neutrogena Acne Stress Control and have seen better results than I ever did with Proactiv. Anything to do with those two brands I say you can't go wrong. I've tried Biore and clean and clear they were kinda meh and seemed to have my face oily within a few hours.

I used Proactive and it seemed to make my face worse. I have roscea so im careful to what i use. I have also tried Clinque 3-step BUT im too lazy to keep up with it. TOO MUCH WORK! Now i use Avon ANEW RETROACTIVE+ 2-in-1 Cleanser (Cleanser and Toner in One). It seems to help with my oily skin. I like it....smells so refreshing!

My skin is super oily. I thought as I got older it would get less oily, but it seems to have gotten worse over the years. At 45 years my skin is more oily than it was than when I was a teenager. However, despite the oily skin I've never really had a problem with acne/pimples other than the odd one during "that time of month" when I was a teenager. It's been many years since I've had a pimple.

I usually use "Biore Shine Control". Sometime I use "Noxema", and sometimes I just use regular liquid hand soap. If I'm really lazy I'll just wash my face with the shampoo suds as I'm washing my hair. I've even been known to use Pamolive dish soap! LOL

I don't have an acne problem, but I think I might end up going back to "Clearacil" soap to combat the oil.

I haven't used anything on this mug of mine except Noxema since I was a pre-teen. I put lotion on afterward. My mom is 81 years old and has been using Noxema since the Stone Age, and she's not all wrinkly. Staying out of the sun helps, too.

Proactive dried out my skin but my sister uses it and it's fine with her.
I use a pomegranate natural scrub from Bath and Body works. It leaves my face so smooth and hydrated and I have yet to see any pimples. I have really oily skin too so I use it everyday in the shower.

I used to use St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub, but now I use the "Equate" version, which is cheaper and works fine. For me, the medicated version is much, much better than the regular... I end up feeling really smooth and fresh, and it seems to even out my skin color, too.

For moisturizer, I use the yellow lotion by Clinique (can't think what it's called, and I'm out of it right now), because it works well in combination with my Clinique foundation. Excellent line of products!

I used to use Proactiv but I stopped because 1) It's too damn expensive, and 2) It really didn't work very well. Now I use Clearasil Ultra Cleansing Cream Wash and it works a hell of a lot better and it's MUCH cheaper...

I am currently using Garnier Fructis face wash, but I hate it. It feels like lotion-it doesn't lather up at all. The only reason I am still using it is because it is so expensive (even though I had a coupon ).
I like Noxzema the best. I dont' remember what kind, but its in an orange and blue tube.
I used to use Clinique as well, but found it is overpriced and overrated for me.

I use DHC products; an olive oil wash, clear soap, toner and olive oil. My skin has never beens so soft. This is their basic product, they have a lot of different products. It's mail order and I get it in three days usually.
I'm in the group with sensitive skin, (eczema, dry skin) and I'm so happy with DHC.

I have been using Dove Daily Fash Wash for quite awhile now and am really happy with the results. I have a bit of a dry skin problem and it seems to work well.
post #21 of 42
99% of the time just water .... if any cleaning is needed I have a clinique bar and a kiss my face bar
post #22 of 42
I use the dove beauty bar AKA soap It works fne for me though, I rarely break out, and I get compliements on my skin a lot.
post #23 of 42
Oh, it might sound weird, but I read in a health magazine an idea and I've used it a few times. It's a little milk mixed with raw brown sugar to use as a face wash.

Mmmm...sounds delicious!

I just picked up some all-natural (Nature's Cure) acnre treatment that includes some vitamins...which is what I really need.

I also got a walgreens version of the Biore face wash. I just used it and it feels SO refreshing!

Love that just-washed feeling

I use Aveeno facial wash. I believe its got some soy protein inside to help brighten the skin.

I follow that up with Garnier Skin brightening lotion and Aveeno eye cream (for my dark circles...although that doesn't help at all).

I've tried everything...really and Aveeno is the only thing that will keep my skin feeling like skin instead of being brittle, dry or smelling like rubbing alcohol

For the past 12 years I have been using Enfuselle. I guess it works for me so why change?
post #27 of 42
Oil of Olay foaming face wash for sensitive skin. I've tried so many products and this is the only one that works for me.
post #28 of 42
I use water!

Every now and gain I'll use the St Ives apricot facial scrub, but that's it.
post #29 of 42
Ok so I have older skin.
After reading some reviews I have been using Dove Pro age foaming face cleaner for dull and tired skin along with Aveeno positively ageless daily exfoliating cleanser.
In the shower I have Burt's bees Peach and Willowbac Deep Pore scrub that I probably use about every 3 days.

I have really sensitive skin and sometimes even hypoallergenic products that are supposed to be suitable for sensitive skin make me itch like mad. Then I use Lavera cleansing milk for sensitive and delicate skin or some of the Lavera face washes. If I have a bit more money to spend I buy A'kin or Barefoot Botannicals. I love the A'kin orange blossom body wash. They are all free from SLS, parabens and other chemical nasties that can cause skin problems.
