Purifying Facial Cleanser
I have used several products on my face and they either leave me too dry and red or my face is back to being oily a half hour after use. I love this product. I have been using it for several years now and it is refreshing and does not over dry my face or leave it red. I also like the smell of it. It is also not harsh and I use it to wash away my eye makeup as well. I will definitely continue using this facial cleanser.
Works wonders on my skin!
I had walked into the Bare Escentuals location at Destiny USA in December of 2011. I was speaking to one of the attendants and was asking about a more natural and gentle cleansing solution for my sensitive skin. My issue was that some cleansers tended to be harsh to my skin and would become dry when irritated from the ingredients of those cleansers. About a week after I started using this purifying facial cleanser, I could feel the difference. This cleanser was kind to my skin. It's safe to say that I haven't turned back and used another. This is my second on-going year and I've only purchased two bottles, within this time frame. It's long lasting and works wonders. I would definitely recommend this product!
I have very sensitive skin, it was difficult for me to find a product that removed all my make up and prevented break outs. This product has worked for me for over 4 years now, I will never try something different.
The only thing that would make this product 5 stars is if they made a travel size. My job requires me to travel frequently and a travel size would be perfect!
On a side note Bare Escentuals is the only product I put on my face, make up, eye shadow, lipstick, face wash, and lotion.
best cleanser ever!!!! Love it!!!
I've used many cleansers including proactiv, neutrogena, cetaphil, aveeno, and philosophy. This is the BEST. I don't pack on makeup but it definitely removes all of what i wear: mascara, liquid eyeliner, eyeshadow, and Bare Minerals foundation & concealer. It does it in a very soothing, cleansing, softening way. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and therefore choose this Purifying Cleanser over others bc this one doesn't irritate my skin. I will simply stick with this one always.
I brought the trial version as this was my first time using BE skin are products. I absolutely love the way that this makes my skin look and feel. I was going through some skin issues but when i started using this, it cleared right up!
Finally I found a good cleanser!
I'm not much of the person to enjoy using drugstore cosmetics or skin care products at all so I'm ecstatic that I finally have this. I love everything at BE especially their skin care. This doesn't have an appalling smell like most do, no strong chemical smells. Only reason I give this 4 stars is because I don't like close to transparent the wash is. I like to see the cleanser on my face so I know its not just water on my face but other than that, this is truly amazing. I use the combination skin moisturizer afterwards and my skin is literally baby butt smooth.
Highly recommend for oily skin!
I've been using the Purifying Facial Cleanser religiously for over a year and can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet. I have oily skin that can break out easily if I don't wash my face before going to bed and after waking up. But my skin is also sensitive to most other "gentle" cleansing products. This is the first cleanser I've ever used that I feel lives up to its name. One or two pumps removes all of my BE makeup using just my hands, soothes, calms, and freshens my skin without leaving any residue that other cleansing products do. But the best part is how my skin feels after using it. I'm amazed at how incredibly soft my skin feels afterwards - baby soft describes it best! I break out less and I think it has minimized how oily my skin gets during the day. I will NEVER use another facial cleanser again, and I can't believe this hasn't made the customer favorites list. It should!
What a Life Saver
For YEARS I have experimented with over-the-counter cleansers provided by Walgreens and other grocery stores. They always made my pores red and irritated after I cleansed. I have used Bare Minerals makeup for years now and had a lightbulb the other day: "Why haven't I tried their skin care line?" I got a starter kit that came with a cleanser, night serum, and moisturizer, and feel in love with all three! Minuscule bumps I always had on my skin were gone in just a few days, and my skin that was always peeling was glowing and looked as healthy as ever! I can now officially say I am a Bare Minerals addict.
My go to cleanser when not wearing makeup
I have perioral dermatitis so I've got to be very careful when it comes to the ingredients I use on my face. This cleanser is amazing! I use it twice daily, morning and before bed and my skin loves it! It doesn't remove makeup very well so I use the BE Foaming Facial Cleanser for that. Yes I wash my face three times a day but my skin is much clearer than its ever been and I have the BE products to thank! I think that shows how gentle on your skin these products are. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it doesn't work well at removing makeup, but it's a 5 star product otherwise!
I used a specific cleanser for years since I have sensitive skin and it's hard to find something that works. They recently discontinued this line so I was desperate to find a replacement. I need something that can get in my eyes without stinging, cleanses without irritation or break outs. I have been really impressed with this. A bonus is that the pump can be turned to lock for travel.
