This facewash...
Purchased

...is the very best facewash I have ever used. A little goes a long way. It doesn't foam but it breaks up oil and makeup that your face wipe missed.

purity made simple

Absolutely love this product. Very fresh, clean scent. I love how soft my face feels after I use this product! Definitely does not dry out my skin like other facial cleansers can.

Great for sensitive skin!

I absolutely love this cleanser. I have incredibly sensitive skin and and this cleanser is one of the few things that I can actually use on my face. Even though it isn't exactly cheap, it is worth it. Because you only need a little bit of product, a 8 ounce bottle will last a very long time. My last bottle lasted for a year and that was with washing my face everyday.

Absolutely Love This Gentle Cleanser

This cleanser is life - it is so gentle, removed makeup, has a faint scent, and does not aggravate my skin. While i do like to use an exfoliant from time to time, i think this cleanser is perfect for everyday use because of how light it is. I like to use it with a facial cleansing brush for a little more umph! It is a little pricey, but worth it - and there is a travel size available that is perfect for travel.

Best Facial Cleanser
Purchased

I am now on my second full-sized bottle of this cleanser. I have combination skin that leans toward dry. Purity gives my skin the clean feeling without drying it. I also like the smell - nice and light without being flowery.

A lovely cleanser

This wash is so fresh and clean. It is very gentle and never drying on my skin. It doesn't remove all my eye make up on its own, so you will still need an eye makeup remover of some kind. But I still really enjoy this cleanser

LOVE IT!!

I am always up for something that simplifies my skin care routine, and holy smokes this does the trick! It thoroughly cleans my skin without feeling harsh or dry afterwards, and it is gentle enough that I use it to take of waterproof mascara and eyeliner in the same wash!

Great gentle cleanser

I have sensitive skin and this cleanser has been great. A little goes a long way. I also use it with my clarisonic cleansing brush for the ultimate clean.
