This creamy, oil-rich cleanser would be a safe, effective bet for dry to very dry skin if it did not contain a couple of fragrant plant extracts that can cause irritation.

The problematic ingredients aren't present in amounts likely to be problematic, but anyone with sensitive skin should still avoid them. A potential problem is that because this cleanser isn't the easiest to rinse you may end up leaving residue of the fragrant plants on your face, and that's not the best.

Skyn Iceland includes a coton muslin cloth meant to be used with this creamy cleanser, and that's great because you will need a washcloth like this to ensure complete removal.
