Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser

Perricone MD Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser ($39; Press Sample) is a mild, detergent-free cleanser for dry and sensitive skin types. It contains olive polyphenols that claim to help cleanse without the dry, stretchy feeling.

The cleanser comes packaged in an 8oz, huge glass bottle that I'm being extra careful about using. A couple of pumps dispenses what I need for one use. The gel texture is smooth, almost like an oil, with a nice slip to it. I don't detect too much of a scent though - just a mild, medicinal scent that doesn't bother me. It foams up quite well and washes off clean, not squeaky clean, but clean enough to get all the gunk off. On days when I have a full face of makeup, I do use another cleanser prior to this and then use this to wash off the excess. It does a fabulous job of getting rid of whatever's left behind and doesn't strip my skin of its natural oils. It doesn't completely take off stubborn waterproof stuff though - I had to go over a couple of times, only to see a few smudges of waterproof mascara left behind. It definitely is gentle enough for my dry/sensitive skin. Unlike many other gel based cleansers, I can wait a few minutes before using a moisturizer and my skin doesn't feel too dry and tight. Overall, definitely recommended for sensitive skin types or for just about anyone who wants a gentle, everyday cleanser!
