God sent! My son was born with a extreme case of Atopic Dermatitis and all the "sensitive" baby products would just make him break out even more. It was horrible, until one day his dermatologist recommended this brand and now that he's 3 I don't trust any other brand on his skin. It's helped for us and now we all use it as well, can't recommend Vanicream enough!

Best cleanser for my sensitive skin
I've been searching for a great cleanser for months ever since my skin started to randomly break out. This cleanser is gentle but leaves my skin feeling super clean. I've incorporated it into my skin care routine and my face has gotten a little better! I've only had it for a few weeks but I probably won't go back to another cleanser.

Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser
This stuff has drastically changed my skin--and I only switched to it a week ago! The persistent redness I'd had for over a decade is now non-existent, and this is the only cleanser I've ever used that I can put directly on the seborrheic dermatitis around my nose and it doesn't irritate it at all! Also, since starting this cleanser, my hyperpigmentation has cleared significantly, and all my dry flaky areas are gone! This is truly a life-changing product at such an affordable price. I actually look forward to washing my face now.

College student here! PLEASE DON'T STOP MAKING THESE! I have tried everything under the sun to calm my acne. Cetaphil dried me out while Ceraves reformulated cleansers and moisturizers break me out BAD I stumbled upon a few YouTube videos talking about vanicream being perfect for people with really bad acne and skin issues so I gave it a shot and instantly after 2 days of using the Gentle Cleanser and moisturizing cream my acne has gone down SO MUCH like dude I'm so shocked I haven't tried these sooner. This is now my forever go to brand! To people looking for an alternative to Cetaphil and Cerave stop right here!

My HG cleanser
I recently started my tretinoin treatment for my acne. Before this, I was using Cetaphil daily cleanser for oily skin skin with other skin care products,. However, since starting with tretinoin, my skin would get so red and irritated every time after using the Cetaphil cleanser. After watching YouTube video and hearing how Vanicream cleansers & moisturizers help with skin sensitivity caused by tretinoin usage, I went to Target and bought this cleanser and moisturizing skin cream. WOW!!! My inflamed and irritated skin instantly calm down after washing my face with Vanicream face cleanser and the moisturizing cream felt so soothing on my skin. Nothing else worked for me. Thank you Vanicream for creating such miraculous products! I don’t ever want to use anything else! Please never discontinue with this product or change the formulations, because it’s just so perfect as is! :)

Vanicream gentle face cleanser
Over the years, I have developed a lot of allergies to ingredients used in face cleansers. I stumbled upon a blog by a dermatologist, recommending this face cleanser. I have tried so many of them and all have given me redness and even worsen my condition but the Vanicream gentle face cleanser. I highly recommend it. The best ! As soon as I washed my face with it, redness instantly healed and disappeared after a few days. If you are highly allergic to natural or chemical ingredients, I advise you to try that cleanser. It saved my face.

Best face wash ever!
I have been using this for several months now and my skin is so much happier! I have tried so many different "sensitive" face washes over the years including Cetaphil and Cereve with terrible results. After Lush left my skin seriously angry and inflamed, I started using this and it was like night and day. It even removes all my makeup without the need for makeup remover. My skin feels nice and clean afterward without the dry, tight feeling a lot of cleansers leave. My skin was very oily and a lot more acne prone, now I don't have that issue. Please never change! This stuff is a miracle.

Excellent Cleanser
I use nightly after my oil cleanser. Foams slightly but does not dry my skin. Also does not burn my eyes! Lovely cleanser for my sensitive, eczema and acne prone skin!
