Consistently, this is the most gentle, most truly non-irritating or sensitizing cleanser I have ever used. I am so relieved the full Hydralight line is back especially in time for warmer weather, and really put all my stock in Paula's company on the promise that this and the Moisture Boost line will stick around for the long haul, especially given all the recent changes. I have very sensitive combo skin that dries out at the drop of a hat but also congests easily. I am also prone to reactive breakouts that are redder and more inflamed when using something my skin dislikes, and this cleanser calms my face much better than any of the Calm line products. Finding a balance is a chore, but this is the only cleanser I have ever found that *really* doesn't bother my skin ever. It is cool and refreshing, especially when getting more sun at this time of year. It doesn't strip my skin, but also truly cleans it -- in the past, I have flip flopped between cleansers that claim to help with pores but dehydrate for the cost of clean, and dry skin formulas that feel soothing but do nothing for keeping pores gunk-free and smooth. This one is always the ticket.
