Purifying Facial Cleanser
I have sensitive, combination skin, prone to breakouts when it's grumpy. I LOVE this cleanser! I first tried it about a year ago when I moved, switched salons and saw it at my new salon. I loved it, but felt like I was spending too much money. After that first bottle was gone, I tried a variety of less expensive cleansers, but none matched up. I must avoid silicone and dimethicone in my products and a dimethicone-free product line is hard to find. I finally decided that even though I was buying cheaper cleansers, it wasn't worth it. I was wasting money on products that irritated my skin and had to be discarded.
This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and balanced and looking radiant.
I'm back to BE products for good!
Great product! My skin feels wonderful!
Even my boyfriend loves it!
I've been using this cleanser for almost a year now and am just getting around to reviewing it haha. It is the best cleanser I've ever used! It never makes me feel dried out afterwards and it gets rid of mascara so easily! I recently left it at my boyfriends house on accident and have since caught him using it more than he uses his own cleanser! And we both love that it smells like vanilla cupcakes : )
So far, so GREAT!
So I've only been using this product for roughly a week and, therefore, do not have an "in the long run" opinion....yet!
I wanted to give BE skin care another shot as I had used the Deep Cleansing foam nearly a year ago and truly LOVED how healthy my skin looked. Unfortunately, the results only lasted a month and the foam no longer kept my blackheads at bay :(. THEN I got pregnant and my skin went completely berserk! I had to switch back to a benzoyl peroxide based regimine which cleared my skin but, ultimately, left my complexion over-srubbed and drab. It wasn't totally destroyed, though, as I was still using my BE Purely Nourishing Moisturizer. So there was still a hint of healthy skin underneath what was being abused on top. What I love most about BE skin care products is the "glow" your face has from using it and you just don't get that from any other product.
Comparing this cleanser to the Deep Cleansing Foam, I definitely prefer this one. I simply do not feel as though the foam cleanses as well as this product does. This cleanser removes all my face makeup (Bare Minerals, of course) with NO trace left behind. It even passed my "toner test." The first time I used it, I followed up with a cotton ball and toner of a different brand to see if there were any traces of makeup behind. The cotton ball came back CLEAN! Even the benzoyl peroxide cleanser left makeup behind, despite removing a layer of skin. So I KNOW the Purifying cleanser is getting it all off. This product is super gentle and I do use it all over...including my eyes to remove the majority of my eye makeup. However, it doesn't remove it all and I have to follow up with a cotton ball and a SMALL amount of makeup remover. I even pumped extra JUST for my eyes and still couldn't get rid of the racoon look. That is the ONLY reason I give this product 4 stars instead of 5.
Even the packaging is great. I love that you can lock the pump "closed" for times of travel.
Overall, I am pleased with how this product has expedited my night time routine. I'm really diligent about sticking to my regimine but it's nice to know it won't take me long to get ready for bed. Just two pumps and a minute or two of massaging is all it takes to get my skin completely clean and gorgeous-looking.
This cleanser also pairs perfectly with the exfoliating treatment and Purely Nourishing Moisturizer; I HIGHLY recommend using them together! Once again, my face looks super healthy and is glowing, even after just one week of use.
Love, love, love!
Great cleanser for dry skin
This cleanser is wonderful for my slightly dry skin. It leaves my skin feeling balanced and smooth. A little of this product goes a long way, too.
The double size is well worth the price! I use the recommended two pumps to clean my face and saw an immediate difference. I had bad acne breakouts because of pregnancy hormones and BE facial cleanser along with the mineral collection has cleared it up. I have always used the makeup but now I'm a believer of the mineral collection.
So Fresh, So Clean
I love this cleanser. My skin feels so soft and clean when i'm done using it, and it works great to take off makeup. It's making me want to try other BE cleansing products! I love it!
I love this cleanser
I love this cleanser because it doesn't dry out my skin and gently cleans. Doesn't irritate my eyes or skin at all. I use it morning and night. I also love that I really only need one pump to get a really nice lather so I expect this product to last me a while.
Healthy, clean skin
I have rosacea, and dry, sensitive skin. Therefore, I am very reluctant to try new products on my face. I have been using the same cleanser for over 10 years and I was fairly happy with it until I started reading more about argireline. I saw the new bare minerals purifying cleanser in a display and for some reason was compelled to buy it and give it a try. I am so glad that I did! It is so gentle yet it cleans well without stripping my skin. It even removed my mascara without much effort, and no burning, or blurred vision. The scent is very light and not offensive. It is very concentrated, so you only need a small pump or two for cleaning your whole face. It is easy to rinse off with a few splashes of warm water. It leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh, and ready for my moisturizer. I am relieved that it was gentle on my skin and I am glad that I gave something new a try, and was pleasantly surprised by it!
Love this but....
I loved this cleanser from day 1. I loved how it made my skin feel so soft and how CLEAN my skin felt afterwards. However, I started breaking out with really BIG pimples on my chin after using it. Because I loved it so much, I convinced myself it wasn't the cleanser and it was just my skin changing. Once I finished the bottle I went back to my old cleanser and sure enough....the breakouts stopped! I don't have sensitive skin or prone to breakouts by any means so I cannot figure out why this product gave me this reaction. I'm sad because I loved it....but it's not worth sacrificing my clear skin!
