I loved this cleanser! The cream was light and fluffy and didn't leave you greasy like cold cream. I used it as a teenager around 1970. Even though it went off the market a couple years later, I continued to wash my face with cream, not soap. At 61, I still don't have a wrinkle. I search the Internet for Happy Face every few months hoping that it will be back in the market. (That's how I found this page.).

I really want to have this Happy Face Facial washing cream back to the market. I used it daily when I was in teenager.
