I like a cleaner that suds up and this one doesn't. I tried using it with my Mia face cleanser and was not satisfied on how my face feels after. I prefer my other cleansers!

Had To Cleanse Again After Use

I know so many people who love this product and have heard so many good things online I decided to pick up a sample size bottle. It looked like a normal cleanser, and didn't feel horrible on my skin (though more on that in a minute), but I absolutely hate the scent. I thought the texture was a little odd while and almost gel like when I went to use it. I tried to use it several times and always ended up washing with normal cleanser afterward. I have liked other products from this brand, and can't really narrow down why I disliked this particular product so much. I gave the sample bottle I purchased to a friend and now know not to buy this again.

Not the best cleanser for combination skin

I tried this cleanser because I had heard great things about it. Unfortunately, it was very drying on my skin and cause it to breakout. It does remove all make up and dirty easily. Probably would work better for someone with less sensitive skin.

Don't like the smell
Purchased

This product is fine as a cleanser. I haven't noticed any improvement or worsening of my skin since switching to this product. I just cannot get past the smell.

It's ok.
Purchased

This cleanser is just ok for combination skin. I have combination skin, but it dries out a bit during Fall and Winter, specially at my forehead and cheeks.

I didn't care about the smell of this cleanser (it's a bit off). It cleaned my skin well, including makeup (I do not wear mascara, though). However, my skin felt super tight after rinsing it off, so I think it works best for those with very oily skin.

Something called "purity" has parabens??

I like that this product cleans off all of my make up. Hence the two stars. However, the scent is off-putting - it smells exactly like I'm rubbing Murphy's Oil Soap on my face. Also, I recently noticed that it methylparaben and propylparaben. Which annoyed me since the name of the product is "purity". I really wanted to like this product, but just can't.

Okay product but not worth money

It leaves your skin dry and the fragrance is nauseating... I expected more for the price and was disappointed. However, it did not break me out.

first purchase and last

This is not the cleanser for me. I feel like it never really cleaned my face. I use make up everyday, as in primer, liquid foundation, bronzer, blush, and setting powder.

Just something that is not for me.

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.

not for dry skin
Purchased

I really wanted to like this, after all of the hype I've heard. But it made my skin feel tight. After using for about two weeks, I gave up. Ended up giving it away to a friend.
