Rated 5 out of 5 by jaygray413 Light Cleanse
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BeautifulOstrich 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bellefille 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!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelle17 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieLisa 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!

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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by AnneW 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy7 Impressed
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.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PenNameNJ Great cleanser
I have been using Bare Minerals and this cleanser for just over a year. I've tried all kinds of cleansers and I truly feel that my skin is cleaner and healthier looking after using this product for a while.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blissful 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by keegs218 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by elizey7 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by azooeydejesusgirl 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rummyk08 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by AmandaAKL 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PeachesandCream My Favorite
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.

Makes my skin so soft and smooth and deff helps with acne and acne scars
Rated 5 out of 5 by sunlover 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!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Gracie2006 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by blondehzrd 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by NaturalBeautyAdvocate Instant Gratification
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dw 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!!!!
