Well, so far the winners are Diane Yvonne's AHA Cleanser, Earthscience's Clarifying Face Wash, and CeraVe's Foaming Cleanser.

Thank goodness I have a list of backups to try in case the Costco stuff doesn't work out. Y'all rock.

Yep, if DY doesn't work, CeraVe it is. Other options were ruined by ingredients like coconut oil. Sigh, my life was so simple before PSF decided to kill the GCC.

I went ahead and bought some CeraVe (because I had a coupon), but not the foaming one. Is the non-foaming much different from the foaming that anyone knows of?

^^^ No idea. Are the ingredients similar?

I like the hydrating cleanser as well. It's more like washing your face with a lotion, but cleanses well and rinses clean. When using that one, apply to a dry face, then gradually add a little water. Otherwise, it'll just slide off without much cleansing going on.

The foaming cleanser gives a nice, gentle lather. I use that one with slightly damp, but not wet, fingers and face. HTH!

E, the ingredients do vary, but I was inquiring more about if they clean differently somehow and what was the benefit to the foaming. Sorry about that, I should have been more specific.

VTmom, that was very helpful, thanks!!

I meant that if the ingredients are similar, then there's a good chance that they clean similarly too.

I thought I'd update. If there was any doubt about the negative effect PSF's foaming cleanser had on my skin, there isn't anymore. My skin has cleared up and I really like DY's AHA cleanser. I will say that I'm going to get the rose hip oil cleanser, though, which seems to be like the AHA without the glycolic acid. I went a bit overboard in trying to clear my skin with BHA. Combined with the AHA, I dried up my skin pretty good. Should I overdo it again, I want to have a gentler cleanser (the AHA cleanser doesn't leave my skin tight or anything, but if you've dried up your skin like I did, it's not the best option).
So, a thumbs up on Diana Yvonne's AHA cleanser and I'm sure the rose hip oil cleanser works very well also. I'll post on it once I have it.

considering this one when I need a new cleanser...anyone ever try their stuff? It's so hard finding something fragrance-free that doesn't have glycerin way up high on the ingredients list. I need FF for my rosacea and lots of glycerin doesn't agree with me...<sigh>...my skin is so fickle

I still haven't found anything I'm crazy about. Every day when I wash my face I'm still mad at PSF.

VTmom, at least they have a decent priced sample size set for trying out, I like that!

Yes, spring, their prices seem very reasonable...only $10-something for the 6 oz. of cleanser (which is really the only thing I'm interested in)!

Ugh, I'm still pissed at PSF. The DY works reasonably well, but my skin is nowhere near what it used to be with the GCC. I have a lot more acne (it's small, thankfully) and my skin just isn't as smooth. I've been trying to find something to finally take PSF's place, but everything I find is a bunch of "natural", "organic" mumbo jumbo that doesn't get right to the point and have what I'm looking for: 5.5 ph, no detergents. I don't care about the myriad organic extracts of virgin tears you have. I just want a well-formulated cleanser.
**** PSF.

Saria typed a naughty, Saria typed a naughty......

My daughter still has half a jar of the PSF GCC. She really likes it but I bought her a bottle of what I've been using since I ran out of my GCC months ago. It's CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser. I read somewhere that the pH is 5.0 -5.5. I really like it and I love that it can easily be procured from my local grocery store.

I'm afraid of anything with even mild surfactants at this point and that's the only reason I am hesitant to get CeraVe. Considering PSF's Moneygrab Foaming Cleanser did a number on my face, even with its otherwise impressive-sounding formulation, I chalked it up to the mild surfactants used for making it foam. I'll probably pick up some CeraVe anyway, though.

I bought some CeraVe, but didn't like it. I think they have a couple different types so I'll have to look and see which one it is. There is a product graveyard under my sink now.

I still haven't found anything I like as much, either. I've been using a TJs cleanser far, and it's ok for this weather, but it's not the GCC.

Yeah, I mistakenly picked up the CeraVe Foaming Cleanser one time. I found that one to be more harsh, due to the foaming surfactants, I'm sure.

I have used Zia Basics Moisturizing Cleanser before. I could no longer find it at my local Wegman's, but I see that it is available at Amazon. It is a very mild cleanser and I really liked it. I don't actively seek out organic cleansers either, but this one is basic and doesn't have any detergents in it. Don't let the oils scare you, if that's a concern. Even my oily skin was not bothered by this. It removes makeup well, too.

Ingredients:

Quote:
Aqua (Water), Sorbitol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin, Canaga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Glyceryl Stearate, Natural Tocopherol (Vit.E), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Fucus Vesiculosus (Seaweed) Extract, Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, *Certified Organic
Good luck on your quest!
