Q & A

CLAY CHAMELEON Transforming Purifying Cleanser is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good in store A nice lady at my local bareMinerals store suggested this facial cleanser to me. I was really attracted to the smell and the description of it, so I decided to buy a tube. I feel like this cleanser has an identity crisis; it's not thick like a clay mask and it doesn't lather like a cleanser. After using it, my skin feels soft but it doesn't feel clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Produt I have never used a cleanser like this before. It is creamy. non-drying, soothing, and easy to use. My face is definitely clean but not drawn and tight like with other cleansers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Cleansers I have looked forward in trying out bareMinerals new skin care line and I have nothing to say but good things about it. This cleanser really works well. It's not meant to use to cleanse off makeup. It is used to help clean off dirt, oil, and other impurities that are in your skin. Since it is a clay cleanser, it's purpose is great for congested skin. After applying and washing off, I see a difference in my face. Leaves a bit of a healthy glow. Also, can double as a mask if left on for a while. I have used bareMinerals for 3 years and have tried every skin care product they have launched. I'd say this is a lot better and a lot more variety compared to the last one where they were just using the Active Soil Complex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this cleanser! I was skeptical about this cleanser when it was recommended to me because it seemed more like a mask than a cleanser but now I absolutely love it! I have struggled with acne most of my adult life and nothing seemed to clear it up. Finally this new skin care line from BM has cleared up my skin and kept it clear even through pregnancy! I definitely recommend this cleanser for combination skin. It has not dried out my skin at all and my skin looks better than it has in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Cleanser I love this product. I have used other BE cleansers and was even going to try a couple of the other newer ones, but this is the one for me. Maybe it's the earthiness of the clay and the naturalness of it. I am 74 (75 in five days) and love the feel of this on my skin when I'm using it and how my skin feels after using it. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice natural feeling cleanser. I was hesitant to try this product after reading mixed reviews. Glad I gave it a chance. I disagree with many of the negative comments made. I think this is a nice overall facial cleaner, no complaints, and have purchased it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the Buisness This is by far the best cleanser out there. I have tried all of their cleansers and this is my favorite. But they have different ones for different skin types and preferences. The clay smells amazing and works amazingly. Don't let the "clay"throw you off. It's not hard or anything. I will never use any other cleanser on my face again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser This is the best cleanser I have ever used! It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft! I use it with the Skinlongevity and Bare Haven moisturizing cream. My skin has never looked or felt better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cleanser!!! I love this cleanser! It's so nice to use & leaves my skin feeling so soft & clean without over drying or irritating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clay Chameleon Cleanser This cleanser seemed heavy and a little harder to wash away. It caused a slight tingling and redness to my face when applying, and itching to my eyes when rinsing away. I have sensitive skin and rosacea,. I have since tried the foaming cleanser which I like so much better than the clay.

Q & A

Have you replaced "Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and "Purifying Facial Cleanser"? If so, with what?

What has replaced "Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser" and "Purifying Facial Cleanser"?
Asked by: jester
The Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser has been replaced with the Skinsorials Mix, Exfoliate, Smooth. It is very similar to the original treatment cleanser. It is a little more abrasive to smooth out your skin and get rid of dead skin cells. The Purifying Facial Cleanser has been split into two products. One being Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil. Cleansing oils have been very popular throughout 2016, so bareMinerals came out with a revamped version. This is their second oil cleanser they have launched. This oil is purposely used to cleanse your skin of makeup (including waterproof makeup) just like the Purifying Facial Cleanser. The second product to use is the Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser. This product is not used to cleanse skin of makeup. But it does cleanse from impurities in your skin. It is made of red clay. I recommend in using all three products if you are looking for something close to the two you liked before.

Linalool in cosmeceuticals is bad!

Why does bare minerals put linalool in their cosmeceuticals? Research since 2004 show it is very damaging to skin, is cytotoxic, and damaging to collagen formation, and an irritant! Why do they not stop doing this? It takes very, very little to cause the damage.
Asked by: rutbhyc
I seen your question and did a search for that ingredient. It's actually used in a ton of essential oils and is seen as very beneficial and actually helps calm your skin.
