Say It Isn’t So, Prescriptives!

I just read on Blogdorf Goodman that Prescriptives will be closing its doors in 2010.

While I don’t use their makeup line much, I have been a hardcore fan of the Prescriptives All Clean Fresh Foaming Cleanser for years. In fact, it is the ONLY cleanser I have used in 2001!

Does anyone know where I can stock up on this fabulous facial cleanser for cheap (aside from eBay)?

Do you have any recommendations for a replacement cleanser? FYI, the reason I love All Clean is because it is unscented, gentle, and leaves my skin squeaky clean!

  1. Have you looked into Gone but not forgotten? Estee Lauder sells leftover discontinued products through here and Prescriptives is part of their company!

    I’ve been a loyal fan of Shiseido’s Benefiance Creamy Cleansing Foam for the past… 8 years? It’s super gentle and cleans really well! Plus it’s got only a very light clean scent. It’s a little pricey, but one 4.4oz tube will easily last you 4-6 months since you only need a pea-size max (I usually use more at night before bed, and less in the morning to wash up).

    I personally like Nars foaming balancing cleanser. It’s very gentle and unscented.
    I’ve heard that Shiseido is the parent company of Nars. You should look into it. =]

    I use the Origins cleanser and found to give me the squicky clean effect.

    NOOOOO!!!!! I use All Clean too! If you find a good replacement let me know and I’ll let you know if I find one too!

    I happen to know a bit about skin care as I have used three different lines in the past year. Origins is great! Very gentle and unscented, great because I have sensitive skin. The only problem for me was that it was a bit TOO gentle (even for the exfoliating scrub) that it started leaving my skin a bit dull.

    For the past month, I have been using Aveda’s “Enbrightenment” line. Perfect!! Really…can’t rave about how magical it is. I pair it with the Enbrightenment toner as well. My only problem with Aveda’s moisturizer was that it was a bit too watery/oily. So I found it best to still use Origins moisturizer.

    Probably gave you way more than you needed or wanted to know, but I hope that helps! Good luck!

    They usually have stuff you don’t always find in stores …. I love getting my Yardley powders from them …

    Good luck – and BTW – first time reader, loving your blog.

  9. I know I’m late to this post but…. I love this cleanser too! And since it lasts so long, I’m just learning that it doesn’t exist any more. Did you ever find it anywhere or find a replacement product?

  10. Val:

    It’s pretty much non-existent anymore. The old ‘large’ sized was a bit over 6 oz. You could find the 1 oz sample sizes still being sold on Ebay for $20 (!!). The 3 oz. ones on Ebay around $32 (!!).
    What I wish is that Prescriptives didn’t keep reporting that they’ll be continuing their lines online just not in stores. It’s ashame Estee let this company fail – they had great potential.
