Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Cleanses better than anything else I have tried
I was really shocked by this product. I was skeptical that a powder could cleanse my face better than a liquid cleanser. Its amazing though. It does take some getting used to, there is no guideline on how to mix the powder with water so it takes a little trial and error to figure out how much of each to use. Its better to start off with very little water. I love that I can fly with this product and not have to worry about it being liquid. When I used liquid cleansers my face would seem clean and then I would dry my face and find make up left on my towels, not the case here. Plus, after cleansing my face isn't left feeling dry and in need of serious moisturizer. Plus I can use it as a mask. Its a great multitasking product, and even though your not supposed to use it on your eyes, it takes my mascara off!
An Exfoliator that actually Exfoliates!
Exfoliators have taken a drastic turn over the past few years, they're now called "exfoliating cleansers" and I find it very difficult to find one that actually exfoliates!
It's not as abrasive as some others.
My disappointments with this one are: the smell. I do not like the smell at all! But because it's the only Cruelty-Free exfoliator I've found that exfoliates I'll just have to get used to it. I also don't like that it's a dry powder that needs water added, it's weird. I was used to exfoliators past that were a creamy consistency.
At the end of the day, YES, I would recommend this and YES, I would buy it again because IT WORKS!
I tried this product after reading a review that had me thinking about my skin. I got it on my birthday and have been using it since. I love how it makes my skin smooth and has been making the noticeable dark patches of skin look more even on my cheeks. I use less moisturizer because it keeps my skin feeling smoother. After adding this to my morning route I will never go back to my old one. Thanks for making such a great product.
Best cleanser I have ever used!
I am amazed that in just a couple short weeks how much better my skin looks! My pores seem to be shrinking, and I am even noticing a reduction in the creases on my forehead and between my brows! I am using a variety of the cleansing products both morning and night, I actually look forward to washing my face twice a day now!
will never use another cleaner!`
After getting a "make over" in the boutique, where they used this on my face, I bought it immediately and I haven't looked back! My skin has never looked or FELT better! It smoothed everything out and my face feels like silk. I LOVE this cleanser and I am a convert! Trust me, try this and you will fall in love with it! Just like I did!!!
What a surprising product!
I didn't know what to expect of the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, especially when I shook the bottle and it sounded like sand inside. I thought, how am I supposed to use this?
But I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this product! First, I rinsed my face and then while my hands (and face) were still wet, I shook the exfoliant into my hands and applied it to my face. I rubbed it thoroughly all over my face and neck. I really like that it isn't harsh on my skin (as some exfoliants can be). When I rinsed it off, my face/neck felt refreshed and renewed :-) Can't wait to use it again!
#1 Perfect Exfoliator = cleanses & smooths skin!
I am completely head-over heels in love with this product & 100% dedicated to this product thanks to my clear skin!! It's amazing how well it works, especially for my complicated combination & uneven skin tone. I can't count how many products I have experimented with, from Neutragena - St. Ives - Burts Bee's - even Proactive, to get the clear skin I have with the Bare Minerals Exfoliating treatment.
It's seriously the only product I'll use to wash my face with, i have 2 of the travel size bottles for the gym and as a back-up, on top of my regular bottle. I've also discovered its the only exfoliator I can use day to day without making my skin raw
I don't know where my skin would be without this product, if anyone was going to ask me for a good face wash or daily facial cleanser, this product would be, without even second guessing, the first thing I would recommend.
Such an amazing product
I really like this product and use it every morning. The fact that it washes away all of the dead skin on my face to make way for newer skin and keeps it moisturized makes me really happy. I have oily skin. It can be used while one showers, or simply over the sink with a wet wash rag.
Gets the dirt from down under
I use this in the morning then the Purifying Facial Cleanser at night for removing my makeup. This really gets the dead skin and if your skin gets dry very easily make sure to moisturize. If you scrub extra long in certain places make sure to wipe it or some of the exfoliate could stay there. It starts off the day great.
I am so glad I gave it another try!!!
I have been using BareEscentuals since 2008. I have problematic skin...that is slowly improving. I had tried this product in the past and was not the biggest fan. I struggled with making the right consistency of a "paste" to feel like the powder was actually cleansing my face well. A few months ago, I had a transforming experience at the Mall of America boutique (on the 2nd floor). I have been a long time user of the purifying facial cleanser; however, one of the associates did a demo on my hands. One hand did a combo of the purifying facial cleanser with the exfoliating cleanser, gently patting the powder into a paste, cleansed the top of my in a circular motion, rinsed. He proceeded to add the moisturizer and it absorbed instantly. With the other hand, he cleansed with water only, dried, and also added the moisturizer...with gentle rubbing, it finally absorbed completely. The end results with the purifying facial cleanser and exfoliating cleanser combo revealed smoother, brighter skin. Since then, I have solely been using this combo on my face and neck...morning and night. My face is smoother, less red, and less problematic. I am so happy with all of my BareEscentual products!!!! You must try this combo...you may never go back to just one!!!!
