I love this!

This is the best face wash I've ever used hands down! It removes all of your makeup, even around your eyes! And it leaves your face feeling soft and smooth

Not Bad, Not Great.
Purchased

This cleanser did not make my breakouts any better. However, It did not make them worse either. I was disappointed because I had heard wonderful reviews on this and I was not very impressed. Especially for the price.

The "It" face wash for makeup removal!

I found this stuff about 3 years ago, and decided to try it because even after using eye make-up remover pads; I still had "raccoon" eyes in the morning. There would be lines left of my waterproof eyeliner, and tons of it loaded into the corners of my eyes. The promise was it would remove all hard to remove eye products. I had my doubts, but it works! I still out of habit more than need use eye make-up remover pads, but I wash with this anytime I am removing makeup. It takes every last drop of it off without leaving residue or leftovers. I haven't switched since, and this is my best friend every night before bed and other products. I urge you to try it for yourself, and be just as pleased as I am. It also washes off extremely easy without having to soak down your sink to do it.

Perfect Balance!
Purchased

I've wanted to try Purity for a long time, and finally decided to buy it. I love this stuff! It's every bit as good as I had hoped. My skin is combination, with very dry cheeks. It's difficult for me to find any cleanser that works well for my whole face. This does. My cheeks aren't dry, and my whole face feels comfortable and balanced. It's not perfumey, but has a clean scent. And a little goes a very long way. I've been using it with my "spinning brush face scrubber" (we aren't supposed to name other brands, right? Ha.) and it's ideal. The 8-ounze bottle is also a great size to buy if you're not totally sure whether you'll like it. But I will get the larger bottle next time.

Removes makeup!!
Purchased

I have been using this to take off my makeup and it does the job!! I bought this cleanser because I read really good reviews and a couple of friends recommended this product to me. I can see why it has a high rating because it really does leave your skin clean and hydrated!! I can't wait to use it with my spin brush.

Very gentle

I didn't get this is my birch box, but I needed a gentle face wash when my skin was being sensitive so I did a bunch of research and found this one. This face wash is very gentle and has a nice natural smell. It doesn't irritate my eyes and is a very milky consistency. My only complaint is that it doesn't take off all of my eye makeup, but when I remove my eye makeup first, then use this, everything looks and feels refreshed and clean. It doesn't tingle, or dry me out. I have drier skin, and this has helped with that. I haven't been breaking out from it, and I have breakouts usually when I change face products so I'm happy with it.

Routine Staple

After my prescription acne face wash started leaving my face dry and irritated, I needed a cleanser that was gentle and soothing enough for my poor skin. I found this product a few years ago and have used it ever since. It is gentle enough to remove eye makeup and does not leave my skin red, dry, or irritated. Except for the occasional zit or pimple here or there, my skin has been happy and healthy while using this product.
