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!
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.
