Not for sensitive or dry skin!

I have sensitive skin, plus I use prescription acne cream. It keeps my skin clear (which is great), but it also dries me out. I wanted to try this cleanser since it's supposed to be good for those with sensitive skin and not too drying. Well it didn't work for me! I ended up with dry, red skin, especially around my eyes. It was painful to put lotion on my face! I recommend buying a small amount of this cleanser if you have sensitivity issues, because it seems to affect people with sensitive skin differently.

so far so good

I have only used this cleanser a few days, but it has accomplished removing all of my makeup and made my skin feel so clean. I normally have to use two separate products...one to remove makeup and one to deep cleanse, and this one does both. Two thumbs up!

So soft and so clean

I've never gotten as clean without using a wash cloth as I do with this stuff. I love the simplicity of this stuff. The smell is nice and not over powering!! Works wonders!!

Best Face Wash EVER

I have really sensitive skin, and this is the only face wash I have found that does not cause my skin to break out, dry out, or become an oil slick. It's perfect.

One of my favorite cleansers

Simple and easy to use. Smells nice. Always leaves my face feeling clean fresh. Never harsh on my sensitive skin.

Glad I Switched!

I tried "purity" in college at the age of 20 and it really did nothing for my breakout-prone, combo oily skin. Fast-forward 10 years, and I decide to give the product another try, mainly because of the positive reviews!
And I am definitely on board! I use this product twice a day, once in the morning, then at night in the shower with my Clairsonic (DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION! I feel I could almost use any facial cleanser with this brush and my skin would still be amazing!)
Here is the breakdown of my current skin:
Combination normal/dry
Few breakouts, usually in the hormonal zone
Issues before "purity"-dull, lack of vibrance, areas of flaky dryness. All issues were completely solved with this product (again in combo with the clairsonic)

I have tried many many cleansers, systems, multi-step programs, including: Proactive (way too harsh), clinique 3 step (also too harsh, and really did nothing for my skin), the Clairsonic cleanser (love this, but hard to find, similar to purity)

After washing with purity, I feel like I have completed 3 steps in one. I no longer have to spend 10 minutes removing my makeup first, then wash, and then tone. It is all-in-one for my busy lifestyle!

(I do follow up with a Caudalie serum and elixir that I love!)

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.

Best Cleanser

From my own personal experience I have been through many cleansers from Neutrogena to Korean branded cleansers and I have not found one that works as well as this does. I do not wear make up therefore I can't review on the power of its make up removal but as far as cleaning my skin this is my all time favorite. The main reason why I cling to this cleanser is because the way my skin feels afterwards. Many cleansers on the market do the job of cleansing, don't get me wrong, but to leave the skin hydrated is a bonus you get with this product. The secret is the meadowfoam seed oil so your skin is comfortable and not dry or tight. The smell is pleasant and is not overly perfumed so day and night this cleanser is my go-to for my first step in skincare.

Perfect

This is definitely the best facial wash. Does not dry out skin and gets off even waterproof mascara with no problem

Simple and Clean

I love this face wash. It is so light and refreshing and still get's the job done. I use it twice a day, once with my Clarisonic. Works great for makeup removal and never causes me to break out.
