Purifying Facial Cleanser
The Perfect Cleanser!
This is my all time favorite facial cleanser! I have dry patches pretty badly on my cheeks and sometimes my forehead. This cleanser gently cleans my face removing all tracing of makeup. Leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean!
Did not completely remove makeup
I tried this several times just to ensure it wasn't a one off type deal, and for ME it does not remove all of my makeup.
My face looks clean, it feels clean, and my mascara is gone ... however upon using my toner the cotton pad has traces of makeup on it each time.
I use BM foundation, veil, AOFC, blush, etc. So if that is TOO much makeup for THEIR wash to take off then PLEASE make a face wash that DOES remove all traces of your makeup and leave your face clean - as advertised/promised.
This would make a good pre-wash makeup remover (hence 3 stars), but not a one and done type makeup remover and cleanser.
Very Effective Cleanser
This cleanser is very effective! It is gentle, cleans the pores deeply (you can feel it working), and you don't need very much of it. Make sure you moisturize immediately after using, though, because it can dry out your skin pretty quickly otherwise.
Purifying Facial Cleanser
This cleanser is a great morning cleanser (even though it could be used morning and night). It is creamy and smooth, making my skin look and feel soft, clean and luminous. As a makeup remover, because I wear so much eye makeup (eye primer, eyeliner, mascara, all in massive amounts!) it takes a little bit to get it all off (especially from under my eyes) but it is not oily and I am not worried about it pulling on the sensitive skin under my eyes.
Exactly what I needed
I have tried EVERY face wash there is! They either make me break out worse or don't do anything at all. I've never had acne till my 20's and this face wash is AMAZING!
Love x a million.
While this product is not the best at removing 100% of eye make-up (I use a separate remover for mascara after cleansing), it is the best face wash for your skin, IMO. It removes all traces of face make-up and leaves my skin super smooth. I never break out with this cleanser. The bottle lasts FOREVER since you only need one pump for your face. Can't rave enough.
I've been using this for 2 months, and I love it. I have dry, acne-prone, sensitive skin. This is the only cleanser I've found that doesn't make my skin feel tight, and it completely removes all my makeup- even my strongest water-proof mascara, no need for harsh makeup removers. It also doesn't make me break out. My dermatologist recommended a few different brands... I tried all of them, and they made my skin sting! I'm going to tell her about this cleanser next time I see her. HUGE recommend for anyone with sensitive skin like mine.
It has a lovely very light lavender scent.
My absolute fav cleanser
Makes my skin so soft and smooth and deff helps with acne and acne scars
Gentle and safe for my rosacea
I am 55 and recently discovered I have rosacea. Not one to take medications, I am trying to battle this "red rash" other ways. My dermatologist recommended I use Bare Escentuals for my skin. This soap was the first product I used. I am now ready for my first reorder. I love this product! My rosacea has disappeared with the help of Purifying Facial Cleanser. And being older, I like that this product is soft and gentle for my skin. Just 2 little squirts and a splash of water creates a soft "lather". The product lasts a long time and is well worth the reasonable price.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone in my "age group" who battles with sensitive skin and worries about wrinkles. Love it!
Not great for very oily skin
A consultant at the Bare Escentuals store told me I had combination skin and recommended this product. I do have some dry patches but the majority of my face is super oily. I tried this cleanser and it did not cleanse my skin well enough. I had more blemishes with the product than I did with soap. If you have very oily skin and use this, you might want to avoid using the combo skin moisturizer as well.
Fantastic for sensitive skin!
I love this cleanser. I have super sensitive skin and this cleanser has never broken my face out. It does a great gentle job of removing make-up, eye make-up, and oil without drying out my face. Afterward, I use a 10% glycolic acid cleanser and follow with a moisturizer... and my face has never looked clearer or more free from black-heads/blemishes! I have tried using other products, but always come back to this one. Love Bare Minerals....once again, I'm hooked!
After the first cleansing a significant improvement in my skins clarity, texture, and tone was immediately noticable. Its been less than 30 days, and people continue to compliment my skin. Cleansing is the first step to beautiful skin, and this face wash is a super starter.
I got a sample of this item and it will be on my list to buy! Gentle and yet so cleansing... The best face wash product I've tried!!!!
