Very gentle

This is a great, gentle cleanser. For me, it felt a little too gentle and I wasn't sure it was effective combating my summertime acne. I love using it in the winter though, when I'm not dealing with flare-ups. It pairs great with a Clarisonic.

It's ok

Not sure what the hype is about this face wash. I gave it 3 stars because its affordable and its a pretty big size. The only reason Im not crazy about it is because it did not help with my break outs.

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.
