Product Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for rosacea and oily skin I have been using this for 10 years. Last year I started the medical grade ZO skin care line. After 6 months I stopped and went back to this. I get compliments all the time on my skin. This is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEED THIS PRODUCT!!!! I have dealt with acne for years, and this product is my favorite to keep my skin clear. I am like the others on a hunt for this product as well. The foam works, but the cream is way better. I can not even find the pads. I love this product PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUED IT. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face soap for acne prone skin! I have been using this face soap every night for over a decade. I love it! I combine it with Aveeno’s ultra-calming daily moisturizer, and it keeps my face soft and acne-free. I highly recommend this facial cream cleanser - the foaming cleanser doesn’t work nearly as well for my skin type as it drys out my skin. The only problem is I now can’t find this product anywhere. I purchased a one year supply on Amazon last year when I first couldn’t find it, thinking it was a COVID related supply chain issue. However, I still am unable to find it in stores. Please don’t discontinue this great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy, Cooling, Soothing! I don't have acne...I just love the way this feels on my face. I wash with a foaming face wash, then, use this too cool, soften, and moisturize. It feels AMAZING...and I have even gotten my husband to start using it. DON'T EVER STOP MAKING THIS PRODUCT!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Non-Drying: Good but could be Great I've been using this for a while and I like this a lot, I have dry skin and i was bracing myself for a drying cleanser since it has 2% BHA but I surprised when i found that it wasn't drying. I love how creamy and nourishing it is, its prefect for morning. It's helped a reduce my breakouts, this cleanser is so close to perfection, but I have some issues with it. 1st I'm not a fan of the smell, Aveeno has some beautiful scent products, but this isn't it (but it something i can get over). 2nd is the cooling sensation from the Menthyl Lactate, i hear this less sensitizing than Menthol but i just know this going to irritate my skin if my barrier is comprised, plus I don't find the sensation soothing, i would much rather this was in it. The 3rd and last issue is how difficult it was to find, I wouldn't find this cleanser in any store near, and trust me I looked everywhere for almost 2weeks. This made me wonder if it was being discontinued. Eventually I had to order it online but took several weeks to get to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I’ve ever used!!! I have been using this for YEARS. Nothing can beat it. Every time I try to use something else it’s never the same. Nothing makes my face feel cleaner than this product. It makes my skin feel moisturized. I have no more texture and my skin tone looks so even. I am 25 years old and I’ve been using it since I was a teenager. I can’t find it anywhere I had to order it from Amazon. I normally would always get it at Target. Please don’t discontinue it I cannot live without it!! It’s a staple in my daily and my nightly routine. It’s a must have!!!! Aveeno please please please bring it back to stores! Thank you for making this amazing product!
