    Default I Need A Facial Cleanser - Fast!

    I received an email today from the company that provides my facial cleanser. It's a very small company, and the person who coordinates the business is retiring. Subsequently, the business will be closing.

    I'd really appreciate your suggestions for a facial cleanser for EXTREMELY sensitive skin. Specifically, I'm looking for a liquid cleanser that lathers.

    If you use one that fits the criteria above, or you know of one, please let me know.

    Thanks for your help!

    yeah, that would be linda sy. I liked her oatmeal cleanser too.

    Right now I'm just using jojoba oil and water to clean. I may try Eucerin at some point..
    take care,

    Default Dermaveen

    I have absolutely no idea if the following information will be of any use or not, but I thought I would post the website anyway.

    Some of you are worrying what you will do when the Linda Sy product line becomes unavailable. I don't know what her oatmeal cleanser is like, but I do know that Dermaveen includes colloidal oatmeal in their products.

    I will be getting some samples shortly, so I can let people know what they are like.

    Currently, I am using the Environ Cream Cleanser, which seems to suit my hypersensitive skin.
    They also do a foaming one.
    You can walk into any clinic that sells these and get free samples in a tube.

    I have very sensitive skin, and I use Fresh cucumber cleansing foam for sensitive skin. It is a foam cleanser, but is botanical (no SLS). It works well for me. Good luck!

    The best thing ever (dermatologists agree) - La roche posay's toleriane cleanser. it's meant for people with really sensitive skin.

    EK1, I can't use the Toleriane cleanser anymore. I used it for a few months with no problem, but then it seemed to make my face itch and burn. I think it was the dipropylene glycol (i know I haven't spelled that correctly, but it's 03:16...lol). I think it can impede the barrier function of the skin and make it more succeptible to irritants.

    I use Avene tolerance extreme now, but I put a drop of jojoba oil in it, because i find it doesnt quite get my makeup off on its own.

    Best wishes x

    Thanks for your suggestions, everone! I'm looking into all of them.

    Another cleanser I came across is "Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser." Has anyone had any experience with this one? Good? Bad?

    Any particular reason why you're looking for a foaming cleanser?

    I've been using Avene's 'Extremenly Gentle Cleanser', and Olay's 'Gentle Cleansers Conditioning Milk', on skin that could not be more sensitive (its probably only one step down from being burn-skin), and both have been absolutely fine. However, neither are foamers.

    (The latter is a little difficult to find and goes under various slightly different names).

    I've tried several non-lathering cleansers, and my skin never feels clean when I use them (i have slightly oily skin). Also, I have occasional issues with acne, and the non-lathering cleansers don't seem to effective in keeping my skin clear.

    Thanks to all who've responded, and additional suggestions are appreciated always appreciated. Thanks!
