Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer To Squeeky Clean
I don't like the way this makes my skin feel. I feel like it strips all the moisture out of my skin to the point of squeeking. I miss the active soil cleanser.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Redhead99 I love this cleanser!
I have super sensitive, dry skin that is prone to breakouts (usually due to reactions to chemicals in products). This cleanser is fabulous! It has a lovely, light fragrance (usually my skin can't handle perfume of any kind), it is gentle and it feels delightful. I don't find it drying at all and I use it once a day. Best of all, it cleans my skin without causing any negative reaction!

Definitely love this new product, yes it is a little drying but I still love it. I had a pimple on my face and used this, in 2 days the pimple minimize. I also feel this cleanser leaves my face feeling very clean unlike the ones before. My face didn't feel as clean with this one. Definitely recommend for oily & combination skin

I never used the "old" BM cleanser that so many reviewers reference but I LOVE this cleanser! It has a wonderful fresh scent and it lathers into a silky foam that really cleans my face. My daughter loves it too.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Too Drying
I am 74 years old. I do not need this very drying cleanser. Please bring back the original Purifying Cleanser. I loved it and it did not dry out my face.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Karrieem Go back to original cleanser
The original facial cleanser worked so well with my skin. After each use my face would feel so silky smooth and I never got acne until Bare Minerals switched to their new facial products. Now I developed acne on both sides of my face around the cheek and jaw areas. The acne is so bad I have a scheduled appointment with my dermatologist. Sorry Bare Minerals but I can no longer use your products.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sasha2016 Not What I Expected from Bare Minerals
I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for 12+ years, it has always been my favorite as it is the ONLY foundation that does not break my face out. This is the first cleanser I have used from them and I am not impressed. I immediately felt like I was using cheap hotel soap, I hated the texture it left on my face afterwards and it did leave my eyes burning slightly. I have combination skin that is fairly sensitive and I can think of many other brands that cost less and work better. Sorry Bare Minerals!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Bring back your previous skin care line
I have been using the new B.E skincare line for 9 months now. I use plush cleanser, their skinlongevity serum and their bare haven face cream. Unfortunately, this new skin care line is a major down grade from their previous skin care line that contained the "ActiveSoil Complex"
When I used to use their face cleanser, serum, exfoliator, and face creams with the "ActiveSoil Compex" I could actually see that these products worked. My skin was radiant, smooth and always look polished. I used to get a lot of compliments on my skin but now, my skin looks drab.
I've given this skincare line 9 months and my skin does not look smooth, radiant or polished well rested.
I've been using the B.E skincare line since 2011 because it was the only skincare line my sensitive yet oily skin could handle but now I'm going to stop purchasing and I am going to hunt for something else because this skincare line does nothing for me.
As far as the plush cleanser, it does not fully remove all my makeup and it doesn not keep my skin smooth like their previous deep clean facial cleanser with the "ActiveSoil Complex" did.
Please, please, plead B.E bring back your skincare line with the "ActiveSoil Complex"
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Very disappointed
I really wanted to give this new line a chance, despite LOVING the old purifying facial cleanser. It definitely gets your skin clean and feels very creamy as you apply it. Unfortunately, it burns my eyes. What is in this? Also, it definitely dries your skin very quickly as you are washing your face, and makes it to where you can't rub your face because your hands get stuck. Literally. Others may have described it better. Very sad about this cleanser and wish they would go back to natural products without ingredients that burn your eyes.

by Bee8915 MASSIVE BREAKOUT - extremely drying.
This face wash literally sucks every ounce of natural oil/moisture from your skin. Some people may benefit from that... me, not so much. While your rinsing after washing, you can feel/hear a squeaky clean sound, thats how drying it is. This is a great face wash for people with extremely oily skin, or people who cake on their makeup and need a heavy duty wash to get it all off. This is NOT for anyone who has normal/dry/sensitive skin.
I bought the Bare Haven Moisturizing Soft Cream with this, and even that didn't get enough moisture back into my face. I am going to continue with the moisturizer, because it's not greasy and it's light enough for under my Bare Minerals loose powder.... But I will be steering clear of the face wash.
See photos for breakout :(... Covered up with makeup but still obvious. Without makeup, it's little red bumps/blemishes all over, and I can't go to work like that. It's not an allergic reaction, they don't itch or anything, I've had hives before... It's a breakout from I'd assume, lack of moisture. I'm 26yrs old, and haven't had a breakout like this since I was like 14, ha!
