Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Gentle but cleans very well
I love this product! It is a little messy since it's powder, but it is worth the mess! If I feel like my skin needs to be cleaned more than usually I use this (I use the Purifying Facial Cleanser and Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin twice a day). Two or three days a week I use it as a mask, where I just keep it on for a few minutes before I take it off. After using this face wash line, my skin tone has gotten more even, less blackheads, less acne, and smaller pores.
Best Exfoliator Ever
I have tried a lot of other exfoliating cleansers but this one is the best one I've used so far and it doesn't contain any of the harsh rocks or materials in it. I already had the other cleansers from this skincare line but one of the girls at the boutique told me that she also used it on her body and it worked well. She was right and I'm glad I included it into my skincare routine. Unlike other exfoliating cleansers, this one is gentle but packs quite a punch. You can also use it both as a cleanser or as a mask. I like to mix mine with the deep foaming cleanser to give it a bigger boost when I use it as a mask. I use this one about twice a week. My skin is ridiculously soft, even the skin on my body. I don't mind the powder form because I know other natural beauty brands also use powder form cleansers or masks. This is definitely a good investment for your skin.
You're missing out if you pass on using this cleanser. I was reluctant to try it when it was recommended to me in store - I have extremely sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin and even when a product promises its delicate, it doesn't work for me. But this cleanser has lived up to all it's claims and then some. It's non-drying and cleanses your skin without it feeling stripped. My skin is incredibly soft, much more even-toned, and breakouts reduced. There is marked improvement in the overall health of my skin since I've been using this cleanser. I use it in the morning and evening. I love it so much. Really impressed with this cleanser, and I think you'd be too!
I gave this product a three mainly because of it's odor. I like the fact that it's an all natural cleanser, it's not harsh or gritty as are most exfoliators, but the fragrance of this product is just not very welcoming.
Works well on oily skin
But I haven't really noticed that my skin is smoother. I can go the entire day without shine when I use this and the combo skin moisturizer. Which in itself is a miracle. It is not gritty and it does take a while to get used to the powder to foam consistency. The directions say that you need to use a small amount but I feel like I need to use a quarter size to get the cleaning action I want. I would still recommend it if you have oily skin.
Love, love, love it!
I use the Purifying Facial Cleanser on a daily basis and the Exfoliating Treatment when my skin needs a little extra love'n :) It works wonders and gives my skin that extra glow. Thank you BE for making such awesome products!!
I use this as my morning cleanser and it makes my face feel nice. I use the purifying cleanser at night and this one in the morning. I do not find that this is great at exfoliating hence the 4 heart review. I usually add natural, unbleached sugar to this cleanser when I wash my face and it helps boost the exfoliating power.
I love the way this product makes my skin feel! I have very sensitive skin, and this product doesn't irritate my skin at all. Even though it doesn't feel "grainy", it is exfoliating - try it on your hand to see. My only complaint is that I find it difficult to get the right consistency with the powder. Sometimes it's too runny, and sometimes too thick. I've been using this for a month and I still haven't found the right mix. Someone at the store suggested that I mix it with a cream cleanser, but that kind of defeats the purpose. I will continue to use this product, but again, the powder is not very user-friendly.
Extremely Happy with this Product
I don't normally leave reviews for items but I do read them when deciding on making a new purchase, so here it goes. This cleanser had me skeptical because of its powdery form but I had tried nearly everything else from other skin care lines. I have combination skin and break out on a regular basis. Acne cleansers would work for a while but my skin would eventually become too sensitive to the active ingredients and I would have to stop using it.
I started using this cleanser, not because of my acne issues but because of the sensitivity to most other products my skin had developed. After a week, I noticed my skin feeling smoother. Another week and I saw my skin become less oily throughout the day. After a month, I noticed that my acne was clearing and wasn't coming back! Again, not what I had been expecting but definitely a bonus.
Can't say how much I love this product.
Out of all the BE cleansers I love this one the best. It is very gentle and effective. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry just soft and smooth. I use this every morning and as a mask 1-2x a week. Wonderful product!
