Foaming Face Wash is a water-soluble cleanser with a slight foaming action. Expect this to do a sufficient job removing makeup and consider it recommended for all skin types except very oily. Foaming Face Wash is also fragrance-free.
This non-drying formula gently cleanses away the toughest makeup, dirt and environmental pollutants while maintaining skin's moisture level. Does not strip skin but leaves it looking and feeling soft, smooth and fresh.

Alpha Hydrox At-A-Glance
Strengths: A good selection of well-priced, effective AHA products utilizing glycolic acid; also excels with skin-lightening and retinol products; a small but workable selection of cleansers.
Weaknesses:A couple of moisturizers with oxygenating ingredients; reliance on jar packaging for some products with antioxidants.
Known primarily for their well-formulated AHA products, Alpha Hydrox got an impressive image update recently. Although the improvements were more visual and packaging-related than formulary-driven, the fact remains that Alpha Hydrox has a formidable range of effective AHA products, all with definitively researched glycolic acid. Kudos to the company for continuing to be direct about the AHA content (and pH) of their exfoliants, something most other lines selling AHA products prefer to keep a mystery. Should the folks behind this brand choose to go back to the drawing board once again, they would do well to reconsider their current jar packaging if they intend to keep adding antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients to their efficacious but still predominantly basic products. Until then, you can rely on Alpha Hydrox for supplying AHA products that really work, and a few other surprises too, all affordably priced and readily available.

This product wasn't terrible...I have dry skin and I did get the somewhat tight, dry feeling after using it. Also, I don't care for the scent at all. Somewhat medicinal? Otherwise it gets the job done without being overly harsh and it is pretty affordable.
I never thought I'd use the term "best" in regards to a facial cleanser, but never say never!! This does a great job without stripping my skin. And the real test was that I can use it over my eyes, no stinging!! Best cleanser on the market, especially at this price. I will repurchase as long as this company makes it, and stays a Cruelty Free brand.
Although I try many other cleansers, I never fail to come back to this one. I like a cleanser that I can use on my eye area; and this one is great for removing eye make-up. Better than Purity Made Simple and MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE!
Rinses off well and leaves my 58 yr old skin feeling clean & soft.
