Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Cleanser Love the smell and how it makes my skin feel. It does take off my eye makeup including mascara, I just notice when I dry my face off, some of my powder foundation is on the towel. So I now wash my face two times with it to make sure. Don't want any left over residue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice non-drying cleanser This is a nice creamy cleanser that removes makeup easily and leaves skin soft. It's moisturizing and non-irritating and Swanson has it priced very affordably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Facial Cleanser This creamy facial wash is a pleasure to use. It feels so relaxing to massage into my face and has a light pleasant scent. It rinses easily leaving behind fresh supple skin. It really feels like it cleans my face yet doesn't leave it feeling dry and tight. I will definitely be back for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best out there This is the face wash I've always wanted. It's not soapy and goes on really smooth. Washes away completely clean, leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and moisturized. Couldn't ask for anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleanser For years I used another brand of organic facial cleanser....but the price of it now is outrageous!!! Found this one & tried it!!! Love it much better than the other one. Cleanses well, soothing & non drying. Just makes my aging skin feel younger & look a bit more vibrant. And the price is fantastic!! Thanks You Swansons for offering such quality items at such a reasonable price. You are a Blessing!!!
