I have used the KaplanMD Cleansing Lotion for transitioning skin twice a day for the last month. For background information, I am 57 years old, have normal skin type with small to medium pores and some wrinkles in the eye and forehead areas. Most people don't think I look my age and are surprised I'm a grandmother of three.

The KaplanMD cleansing lotion is described as a purifying facial cleanser that thoroughly, yet gently, lifts away makeup, dead skin cells and other impurities, while helping prevent occasional break-outs. Soy, panthenol and apple extract increase softness and elasticity by moisturizing skin from within, restoring youthful, healthy-looking skin. Natural botanical extracts of chamomile and hawthorn flower calm and soothe the skin to help reduce flushing and redness.

I found the product effectively cleansed my skin and left it feeling soft. As far as elasticity and restoring youthful, healthy-looking skin, I don't know. I have a little redness in the nose and chin area but didn't find the cleanser made any significant difference. I don't have break-outs so I can't really comment on that area. I don't know the price of the cleansing lotion but I thought the prices of some of the other KaplanMD products that I saw on TIA were a bit pricey.

Overall, I can recommend the cleanser and perhaps used in combination with other products in the line it would be very effective. One would think they could trust any product produced or recommended by a dermatologist!
