Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser
Please don't discontinue!
At 57 I still have skin that pours out oil. I have used this cleaner since inception. Cleans without drying. The company is slowly discontinuing all the products that made me a bare minerals consumer.
LOVE THIS STUFF
Please don't get rid of this!!! This is the best face cleanser I have ever used! It's so great for sensitive skin. My skin is sensitive and oily so I have to be careful with what I use. But this cleansing powder never made me break out and it makes my skin look so nice! So sad to see it's going :(
So sad it's being discontinued
I have been using this exfoliator for years. It's the only gentle exfoliator that works well on my sensitive skin. I used to get a lot of blackheads until I started using this product. I'm so sad that they are discontinuing this. I don't know what I will be using now. I hope they bring this product back!
Devastated it's discontinued
I am so sad! I started using this cleanser when it was first launched and have used nothing else since! I thought it was weird to have a powder cleanser at first but tried it and my skin has never been in better shape. My acne cleared up, my skin tone was more even, and my face felt clean and less oily. I don't know what I'm going to do now...the new clay stuff already broke my face back out again. Some things need to stay the same. I feel like I'm losing a best friend.
PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS!!!
This product is amazing! It leaves my skin feeling smooth, refreshed, super soft, and moisturized in the mornings. I absolutely HATE that they are discontinuing this so much so that I might leave off using all Bare Minerals in protest.
A Sad Ending
OMG! Please do not discontinue this product. I am 54 and I have been using this product for 9 years. It is the only cleanser that does not irritate my sensitive skin and truly leaves my face fresh and ready for the day. Restocking my cleanser is what brings me into your store every few months when I inevitably update some of my makeup choices. Will I come into the store just for eye shadow?
Perfect cleanser and exfoliant
I have used this product for over 10 years. It truly pains me to see it in the "Last Chance" section. I am 65 years old, yet still have oily skin and the occasional pimple. This cleanser is perfect for cleansing without any residue. It cleans off makeup perfectly. It leaves my face feeling healthy and glowing. A true bonus in this day and age is that it is a dry cleanser, therefore can be taken with me on airlines without difficulty over liquids.
I am so disappointed this in under "Last chance". I LOVE THIS CLEANSER!!!
This product is amazing, I Am absolutely in love with this cleanser, it is actually the only cleaner i have even been in love with. It gives your skin such a clean feeling without making your skin feel tight and dry. It helped me with acne issues i struggled with for years and it gave my skin a healthy glow. I am so sad this will no longer be a sold product. Hopefully they will change their minds and see that sometimes the old is better than the new. A girl can hope, right?! I will be stocking up on these for sure
Love this facial cleanser!
I am so sad to see this in the last chance section, but I will be stocking up.
I have used this for years and love it. I use it in the shower, put some powder on one wet palm rub the other on slightly to moisten, and then rub both hands lightly over my entire face. Never leaves my skin feeling either dry or greasy.
this powder is kind of hard to get used to, once you add water it starts to feel more like clay. it smells nice and does a good job at cleansing. I would buy again. a little goes a long way and I have gotten many uses out of one bottle.
Best ever Exfoliating Cleanser
I have dry skin and I love using this my face. It never feels dry and I love the my my face feels after using it
This stuff is amazing! I use it along side my oil cleanser and it makes my skin so silky smooth!
Easy on Face, Tough on Dead Skin
This cleanser, I feel like is good enough to remove all the dead skin build up. I don't really feel like it gives you that "deep cleaned" feeling, but overall it's a good product to remove dead skin and to have glowing skin and cheeks for at least a little bit. I do wish however the powder was a little thicker instead of so fine, which in turn has to make you use more of the cleanser than you start with, and that the bottle was a lot fuller than just about halfway full making you run out faster.
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!!!!
I love, love, love the Original Foundation, but the Exfoliating Cleanser is my first pick for that deserted island. I gave it to a friend to try and the next day her skin just glowed. I will never use anything else - and never is a very long time.
I don't usually gush over facial cleanser!
Due to budget constraints I've been out of my cleanser for several months and have just used facial soap and a cleansing scrubby pad. I just happened to have a bit of good luck and found a travel size underneath my bathroom cabinet this morning and took it to the shower. OMG!!! I had forgotten what a great product this really is! After using it this morning my whole face actually took its first breath of fresh air and oh what an AHHHHHH! moment it was. Even my hands felt cleaner and softer from rubbing it on my face. I remember thinking the first time I ever tried this at the store that it made my skin feel so soft and fabulous and most of all CLEAN! I can't believe the difference and will definitely be making a trip to my Haywood Mall store to buy more before this runs out! Leslie, my face thanks you!!!
Such a Great Cleanser
Such a great cleanser. It's gentle, effective and doesn't clog my pores.
Don't use with a more abrasive agent, such as the clairisonic, or your skin will freak out and get dry due to the over drying going on.
Cleans and repairs.
It's a very good stuff to use for those who has oily or combined skin. I have combined, mine is oily around nose area. I can tell, that it becomes better, and my pores become less visible.
My favorite cleanser!
WOW! WOW! WOW! i love this product! I use it every other day and it makes my face look great! It really washes away all the dirt. I wish it was a bit grainer bc i like to feel like my cleanser is scrubbing the dirt off my face, but even though it's soft it really works. My favorite way to use this product is like a mask! I promise you this is the best thing to do! I splash water on my face and apply a thin layer on my face. I wait for about 15 minutes and wash it off. OMG the after product is amazing! It leaves my face feeling very tight and clean. My skin actually glows after this treatment and my pores look waaay smaller. I would recommend this to any one!
Amazing Everyday Cleanser & Exfoliater!
I love the exfoliating treatment cleanser! It helped to clear up my skin in problem areas (t-zone & monthly break-outs) without the harshness that so many other exfoliaters/cleansers have. It really keeps my skin feeling fresh without drying it out. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to try a new cleanser that actually works on break-outs without damaging your skin!
I've been using the foaming facial cleanser for years until it ran out and Sephora stopped carrying Bare Minerals skin care products. I ordered this without trying it but wanted an exfoliating cleanser. I wasn't expecting a powder but no complaints. This doesn't feel like it's exfoliating but once my skin is washed it feels so smooth. This cleanser has also evened out my skin tone and I've only been using it for about 4 days. I've tried it as a face mask and loved it. It's almost like a clay mask but you don't need very much powder. It doesn't smell great, it smells almost earthy like soil which i don't mind at all. Some people might not like it though.
My favorite cleanser is the Deep Cleansing Foam, but I cannot use that morning & night because my skin dries out easily. So my current skin care routine is to use the foam cleanser at night, and the Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser in the morning. I love it. It is so gentle on the skin, and I have clearer skin with my current routine (been at this routine for about three months) than I ever have before.
Speaking to ease of using this as a powder...
The powder substance took me a few tries to get used to, but once you figure out the right ratio for you, it's very easy. I keep this cleanser in the shower, and when my hands are wet, I sprinkle the cleanser in my hand (It takes two small shakes for me to get my desired amount). Then I rub my palms together and then rub it into my face. The only water I need is what was already on my hands, so it is very easy. Don't knock it until you try it a few times! Plus, you can take a full size bottle of this on airplanes because it is a powder.
It also lasts a long time. I use this once a day and have been using it for about three months and I think I'm close to halfway down the bottle.
