Great for my combination skin!
Purchased

Love this stuff! My face is a mix of oily and dry areas... This cleanser is perfect! It doesn't clog my pores and doesn't dry me out.

Tip: mix a little baking soda in with this cleanser to help exfoliate.

Not a Fan

I'm not a fan of this product. I hate the smell and the way it makes my skin feel. It would leave my skin really dry and it felt like all the natural good oils had been stripped away. Would not repurchase.

Best Facial Cleanser
Purchased

I have been using Purity for the last 6 years. I use a pea sized amount, morning and night, and rarely experience breakouts, or even blemishes. I have normal/dry skin and never feel greasy or too dry with this cleanser. It is the only cleaner I have used that can actually remove mascara smudges completely, as well!

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.

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).

I can't go back!
Purchased

I used to use neutrogena before purity and it just wasn't doing the job. I used to have acne and now I don't. I don't know if it has to do with this cleanser, but I will never stop using it. All you need is a little dot too. I love it!!

This is the only cleanser I will ever use. It is an all in one, it removes makeup and leaves my skin feeling super soft.

Not favorite
Purchased

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!

An everything wash

This is my favorite cleanser out there. It's gentle, but if I feel lazy at night and forget to use my make-up remover it will do a lovely job of cleansing my skin and removing my makeup.

Didn't work for me

Ok so I must be the exception here but this product made me break out so badly. I have sensitive skin and thought this product would be great for that but it just made my skin go crazy. Really disappointed :(
