Okay, but not great
Purchased

I purchased this with high hopes it would be the simple, effective, mild cleanser I've been searching for. It might just be a little too simple and mild...I don't even feel like it's cleansing my face. It isn't the worst, and I use it for travel/ emergencies...but I definitely won't be purchasing again.

Average Cleanser

Purity is a very average cleanser. It didn't do anything amazing for my skin, nor did it irritate it or break me out. If you're looking for a basic cleanser with a slight lather, this is it.

Meh

An average cleanser. I didn't love the milky texture and didn't think it smelled particularly good. I know it comes in a variety of sizes so I thought it would be perfect for travel - I was disappointed.

won't buy again
Purchased

This didn't hurt or help my skin. I would not choose to buy again. I was expecting my skin to be soft but it left a residue.

Really liked this face wash. Fantastic smell, removed make-up just OK- sometimes I'm lazy and don't use makeup remover first so I like a cleanser that is more foamy and removes all make up. This wasn't that for me, but I still really liked it.

doesn't do much good for my skin but it doesn't do much bad either. actually makes my skin very soft but it will not be enough to prevent the occasional breakout.

Not understanding the cult following...
Purchased

Purity is a great facial cleanser. It removes makeup well, leaves my face feeling and smelling fresh and moisturizes pretty deeply. I really enjoy using it (especially with my Clarisonic Mia!) but I have to say I don't understand the legions of people that obsess over it! I have great facial cleansers that have similar effects that I have purchased at the drugstore for less than half the price. It was a great product to try but I'm not sure that I would purchase it again.

Just ok

I really wanted to love this product, but it's just ok. I use it with my Clarisonic and it works well without overly drying. I was disappointed by the ingredient list though since it contains parabens, despite the "purity" name.
