    I have used this for years. I have aging acne prone skin and this is the best! I am disappointed in the new packaging. We need a pump bottle for this product. I transfer it into another flip top travel bottle. The new packaging results in more product than you need coming out with each use. This leads to waste. It appears to me that the company repackaged it so you would use more and buy it more often. That is very frustrating from a loyal SkinCeuticals customer, especially when the products are already pricey. P.S. confused about the Nickname. Trying to post my review using same nickname I used for a review I just posted on another product and I cannot use the same nickname.

    My skin has always been very sensitive and in the past it has been difficult to find a product that checks all the boxes for me. It is such a relief to have found a product that works so well. It cleanses thoroughly and without drying or irritating and foams up just enough, but not too much. I’ve used this cleanser for a little over two years and continue to be happy with the result. I use it in combination with the LHA toner (great product as well). I will say that the new tube packaging has been a huge disappointment. Its very difficult to manage how much comes out and it leaks quite a bit. Please repackage in the pump bottle! I wish I would have kept one of the old bottles to transfer it into.
