I ordered the Castile Cleanser and R&R Toner.

I must say that the Castile Cleanser is indeed gentle. In addition, a little goes a long way. Castile will definitely live on for 2 to 3 months. The Castile Cleanser removes oil and dirt; however, it does not dry out the skin. I usually spend more than 20 bucks on a cleanser; yet, I think this is by far the best I have ever purchased. This product is definitely for all skin types. I am also looking forward to purchasing the cleansing milk. It is always nice to alternate between cleansers of different consistencies.

My skin frequently misbehaves due to working at this Photo Lab. I seem to break out more than usual. I also notice that my blemishes take a lot longer to heal. Although, I am only 24, my skin isn't the same as it used to be. It is a lot more sensitive. This R&R toner shocked the heck out me because it seemed to speed up the healing process of my skin. My skin looks brighter, the spots look smaller and I'm not breaking out. Wow! I love the feel of it. I can spray my face quite liberally and the bottle is still full. In addition to spraying in the morning and in the evening, you can use it whenever your skin feels irritated or dehydrated. It really does wonders. This toner is for all skin types.

Prior to PSF, I could not find a product that could truly handle my skin. PSF is affordable and is of great quality. I am so happy that EDS sells PSF products. Very Happy

Plus, I like how these two products don't have harmful ingredients. It is all natural; it does not contain carcinogens like parabens.

This is a gel cleanser right?.. But it contains oil so I'm wondering if this is greasy or not? Cuz I have a tendency to break out from oily cleanser. Thanks!

I am about to buy these 2 items here on EDS... basing on your reviews. I hope they work for me too. My skin is actually sensitive yet dry, not oily. I have read a lot of good things about PSF and hope not to be disappointed.

Your review is very helpful! I just ordered the bha solution in 5% and it hasn't arrived yet but I agree with the others in that PSF's products seem very natural and effective.

The R & R toning mist is great. I have sensitive skin, and I really like how it feels refreshing.

i'd just like to add on my point for these items that i just bought and have started using. The R & R toner seems to be quite effective in keeping my skin calm and unirritated. I never could see what a toner could do but for now, it hasn't gone bad and my skin does appear to be improving... either from this or the H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating treatment. This toner has a strange cucumber smell when you first smell it but after a while, you kind of like it because it gives you a sense of calm. I genuinely believe the ingredients are helpful in calming my sensitive skin.

as for the cleanser, i have to say it was only ok. i can't see much difference and even though it says that it doesn't dry your skin, it can't beat a milk cleanser for after washing, you still feel a wee bit of tightness since it is not milk based. but it does give you a clean feeling however you can't use it on your eye area which sucks.

so i use it as part of my make up cleansing ritual but use the Dr H milk cleanser for my eye area.

Castile Cleanser is very gentle, removes dirt and keep skin wet.
But the products of PSF lines increased 2 days ago, crying...

I used this with my Clarisonic to remove makeup which is does very well.

I've used it for about 6 weeks now but my gut tells me that it's the clean is too squeaky clean. Maybe because I used the brush with it? Or maybe my skin prefers an acidic face wash (as this is neutral). Not sure but it certainly doesn't make things flare up Smile

I have already posted on R&R toner but wanted to add in my view on Gentle cleansing Castile. Previously I have been using Vichy - which I considered to be a very good (meaning thorough) cleanser but I have moved continents and my skin got really dry as a result of the climate change and the air-con so Vichy seemed to be way too drying! This PSF cleanser is much more gentle! My skin still feels a little tight before I apply the toner but I think that may even be just due to the water. It doesn't have a distinct smell, consistency is a gel but creates a nice foam on the face. The only thing is I am not using much make up these days so I'm not sure how well it gets rid of heavy make up. If it stands the test of make up I'll definitely re-order.
