Multi-functional, nice cleanser with light, bright scent
Purchased

I purchased this cleanser because I was looking for a night-time cleanser to remove makeup but wouldn't strip my skin of moisture and would hopefully also keep my pores from clogging. I have persistent adult acne and wanted something that wouldn't add to my issues. This cleanser has been great - it takes off the makeup and leaves my skin feeling clean but also hydrated but not oily. The scent is light and clean, allergen free, almost like a light lemon verbena scent that is refreshing but not overpowering. When I go to bed, my spouse says "mmm, you smell nice" which is a great thing to hear at the end of a long day! I will definitely purchase again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I had hoped it would improve my acne and it hasn't (but it also hasn't made it worse).

pure like the name

Very refreshing, no overwhelming scents during or after application. Great at removing makeup (especially eyeliner). Leaves skin moisturized instead of tight or dried.

Smells so clean!

This is my go-to face wash - it smells wonderful and does a fantastic job of removing makeup. The only problem I've run into is that it can leave me a little dry, but other than that, it's absolutely perfect.

Great Gentle Cleanser
Purchased

I love a cleanser that can be used on my eyes as well. I love this gentle cleanser for the mornings and when I'm not wearing much makeup. It's a fancy version of Cetephil and I love the clean fresh feeling after using the cleanser.

Want More!
Purchased

A friend got this sample in her birchbox but already used the product so she gave it to me. I tried it last night and loved it! It got tons of makeup off my face (after I had already removed by makeup) and smelled light and clean, but didn't dry my face out. After using my skin felt super soft and moisturized.

Nice, mild cleanser

I have very oily skin, but this cleanser is able to fight through that without being too harsh on my skin. Has a pleasant, mild scent as well.
