Product Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Lightens Hyperpigmentation I used ALOT of inexpensive to expensive well know products that said the lighten hyperpigmentation. But this really works!!! I have seen a noticeable difference in a few weeks and family has saw a dramatic difference. I highly recommend this product for anyone with hyperpigmentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves skin clean and bright I have slightly acne prone skin so I'm always on the lookout for facial cleansers that cleanse without stripping my skin of natural moisture. This cleanser was great. Left me feeling clean and fresh, had a lovely scent. Did seem to brighten my skin overall. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please Go Back to your old formula!! The cleaners formula has changed. I go around searching and can’t get my hands on the old formula. I’m so disappointed I’ve use this face wash for over 15 years it the only product that kept my face on point. I’m starting to break out and my skin is looking greasy, old and cloudy. This is affecting me emotionally. Please go back to the old formula or give customers the option of both. Don’t want to search for another brand. I ran out of my supply without knowing the formula changed if not I would had managed my last supply a bit better. Not even in the black market I can get it. Please return to the old formula keep the good stuff around! Pleased Return to the old formula!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horrible bottle design. I like the facial cleanser but I won't buy it again. I have the 6.7 oz size and I cannot hang onto the bottle and pump the top while I am in the shower. The slim shaped top gives me nothing to hand onto and It slips out of my hands every time I try to pump it. I get frustrated every time I use it so I will not purchase this product unless you change the design of the bottle. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For my sensitive skin recommended by my dermatolog I have been using the pads for well over 15 years on my face since I had a bad reaction with other products. Unfortunately, aveeno discontinued the pads and I found it on the black market for $69.99 instead of the regular price $8.99 I wished that aveeno will return with the pads again which were very convenient and cleaned your face better than the foam. I don’t care if they add the price. Please go back to this wonderful product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from New formula doesn’t work I’ve used Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Cleanser for well over 10 years. The old formula was fantastic- it made my skin look & feel great, but more important kept my breakouts in check. I was surprised by the new packaging when I ran out last month, but didn’t think too much of it. Then I went to use it- the product looks completely different. At first I thought I just bought the wrong thing, but after looking through the products on this website I realized it’s been re-formulated. The new formula leaves my skin tight and dry. I’ve also started to notice breakouts again. Please, please go back to the original formula- I really don’t want to have to search for another great facial cleanser, but will have to switch brands if you don’t. Also, I’m not sure what you were thinking with the new packaging. The pump bottle is convenient, but is far less attractive than the previous version.
