Purifying Facial Cleanser
Gentle but mighty
I've used many cleansers over the years, most of which leave my skin feeling dry or not fully clean. Then I tried the Purifying Facial Cleanser which gets my skin clean, even removing makeup easily, and leaves it feeling fresh and normal - not like it was just sand-blasted. In the summer, I don't even need to moisturize after cleaning. It's gentle on my sensitive skin, but leaves me feeling clean. Best cleanser ever!
Breaks Down Makeup
It breaks mascara like no one's business, but I haven't mastered how to get it off without stretching my skin to the max. I use extra makeup remover once I wash my face then it's fine. I do love this one since I use the bareMInerals Exfoliator, it's a good change when my skin is getting too dry.
Love this product
I have very very sensitive skin. Even some dove sensitive skin soaps have sent me to the emergency room because my face cannot handle what it contains and swells up. I thought I would try this since I have tried the hydrating eye cream and had no problems with sensitivity. I use two squirts of this in the shower every morning and it has lasted me a long time probably close to 9 months and i still have a little left. when you pump it- it really seems like there is not enough to wash your face thoroughly but I assure you; it does the job really good. Since I have started using this I don't even have to moisturize my face after the shower; this does it all for me.
OMG is what I think
I was recently told at a facial that I had oily skin that was very dehydrate. It made sense cause I did not have a good skin care regimen. In fact, though I dont want to admit this, I used Apricot scrub to wash my face and astringent when it felt oily. I went to a Bare Minerals Boutique and the the wonderful rep got me both this face wash and the moisturizer. My skin loves me now!
My acne has always been pretty bad, and everything I tried never got rid of it. I tried everything; neutrogenia, proactiv, etc. and it never cleared up my skin. My aunt recommended I try the bare minerals cleanser and I started seeing results faster than I ever did with any other product, I was really impressed.
A good gentle cleanser
I've been using this product for a few months now. I have normal skin. When I first tried this product I thought, no way, the texture seems so gentle like it doesn't have any oomph. I like a good lather in a cleanser. But I have been pleasantly surprised that a product I would consider to be a gentle cleanser has been so effective and actually improved my skin. I am 40 but occasionally experience a mild acne breakout during that time of the month. Since using this product I am no longer getting breakouts, I feel like my skin looks clearer and feels smoother. I'm really liking the Bare Mineral Skin Care line. I would definitely recommend this product. My only complaint is I wish it came in a bigger size with a better pump. I feel like the packaging is a little cheap and needs improvement so that is why I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
Love the product, hate the bottle
I love all Bare Mineral's skin care products but EVERY TIME the pump on the bottle breaks! At first I attributed it to putting the pump in my travel case. This last time I only used it in the shower so it was never packed anywhere - AND IT STILL BROKE!!
Perfect for breakouts
I love this face wash...though I only use it when I break out...It tends to dry out my skin so I have to use a lot of moisturizer when I use it but otherwise an almost perfect product.
I have a New Cleanser!
When I received a sample size of this cleanser and the Purely Nourishing Moisturizer, I didn't realize how well they would work for me, and they have not left my bathroom sink since!
The Purifying Cleanser is so light and gentle, but also so effective on my combination skin. It rinses clean, and leaves nothing behind (like a scent or residue) and I Love it!! I see that it can also be used as an eye makeup remover, but I am going to have to make sure I have a lot MORE of it than just this sample before I do that!
Thank you for allowing me to be a Fab woman and receive these new arrivals early so I know what I am looking for onsite or in-store :)
Love this stuff
I recently bought this cleanser and have fallen in love!! I have always had troublesome skin on my face and have used numerous skin care lines and prescribed face creams. I have never found anything that has helped my skin any more than this line! I am in love! In just a small amount of time I have noticed my skin looking better and this stuff makes your skin feel like silk!
I have tried numerous cleansers and just about all leave my skin dry and red because I have
This product is wonderful. It makes your skin feel clean and soft. I used it in the shower and it removes my eye make up as well.
When I am done using it just makes my skin feel refreshed.
I love it!
I've been searching for a good skin care line and I've really found it in the bare minerals line. I bought this as part of the youth revealed collection (which I highly recommend because you get more bang for your buck than buying everything individually). It takes of all my makeup including my liquid liner that stays on through just about anything and it leaves my skin feeling great. I also use this with the glow pads to get a deeper clean. I've never understood what smaller pores looked liked, but I finally see it on my skin now that I've used all their skin care products. For the first time, I'm comfortable going out with just a little bit of mineral veil powder and nothing else because my skin just glows!
Love BE but not for me
I have been using this product for a couple months now. I love it because after using it started clearing up my breakout, but it does not help with deep cleansing, and diminishing the pores. I use it with the purely moisturizer and after a while my skin appeared dry especially around the mouth area. I will try the advanced moisture and the exfoliating cleanser next. Maybe this cleansing combination is for the summer. I def could use more moisture during the winter months.
I have used a lot of products that have not lived upto the hype. This product is not one of them! I have been using this product a few weeks now and I can already see a difference in the way my skin feels. It is much smoother and my makeup stays on my face so nicely. I have the same skin issues as many women and I truly believe that this product will be a tremendous help. I also love the fact it smells so cleans. Great product overall.
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.
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.
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!
