Question need a good cleanser on tazorac

i am on tazorac cream...i have oily skin yet it dries easily and then becomes mad and gets even oilier when it dries....i need something gentle (i have tried that cetaphil norm/oily skin but the scent drives me nuts and kinda stings, and i have tried neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser but feel sticky after i wash.....HELP

Try cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, or neutrogena gentle skin cleanser. If you use any irritating face wash with a retinoid like tazorac it will only make things worst.

i have tried those, but they are too rich for my skin and they don't take off makeup....i need something that can take it all off without being harsh

Have you tried Purpose? I use this and my skin is ultra sensitive-even when I am not using harsh topicals. What I do to make it even gentler is put some on my hand and then add water to dilute the cleanser even more.

It breaks you out probly because of the fragrance in it or the sodium laureth sulfate i it. Try the purpose if the cetaphil is to rich for you.

purpose has sodium laureth sulfate listed on the back of the bottle as well .. I personally found purpose to be way to drying for me .. it's not a good option for people with dry sensitive skin

I agree that Cetaphil for oily has a crappy smell, but is just mediocre as a cleanser in my opinion. I don't break out from it. I do like the Purpose gentle wash. If you feel that it is too drying, you could try their new Purpose moisturizing formula which is also a great product.

Another option is Eucerin's gentle hydrating cleanser. These I've mentioned are gentle and are suitable for persons using prescription topicals that can be drying.
