    It was alright

    I like the lavender scent and I like that it is a "natural" type product. It dried out my skin a little too much though. I used this cleanser as part of the Bare Minerals "Youth Revealed" skin care system. In general, I wasn't too happy with the system. My skin was very unbalanced. I had oily, red, acne prone areas on my face such as on my chin and cheeks and then I would have super dry, peeling morereas like around the sides of my nose. After giving it a full two month trial, I switched to another skin care system. The balance problem went away after I switched. I think the cause of the problem was that the cleanser was too drying, the cream was to greasy, and then the night serum created a bacterial breeding ground during the night. And then the price for this stuff compared to the benefits/results is outrageous! This cleanser reminds me of this stuff by Avalon Organics called Vitamin C Renewal Refresing Cleansing Gel, except the Avalon cleanser works better, is less toxic, is way less expensive and you get way more, too. Plus, you don't have to go to the mall or order online to get it. They might even sell it at Walmart, pretty sure they do. So overall, I would not recommend the Bare Minerals Purifying Facial Cleanser. It's a waste of money.

    My Bathroom Staple

    About 6 months ago I went on a quest to find a facial cleanser that I could use everyday and would just do its job without over drying/greasy feeling after using it. I tried about 20 different kinds of different brands and in the end I loved the results of Purity but could not stand its smell! Luckily I ran into a friend that suggested this little doozer and ever since I've been in love and more all my other cleansers. BM Purifying Facial Cleanser is a milky cleanser that removes all but the toughest makeup and is super gentle on the skin. It does not foam but that does not effect the cleansing action. I saw right away that my oily breakouts started to decrease and after a while my dry spots started to lessen. Despite the hype of "Rareminerals" and "ActiveSoil Complex" I feel that the simplicity of this wash is what will make me come back for more over and over. It offers that simple clean feeling without being stripped, and there isn't added crap to mess with your natural chemistry without a weird smell. There is a slight scent, but it just reminds me of soap. The couple things that bother me really don't have to do with the quality of the product at all: 1) I think that this is quite expensive given the size and amount of cleanser you receive, even though I don't use more than 4 pumps in a given day, and 2) I am really ethically bothered by bareMinerals green-washing. One example that continues to tick me off is the quote "Love Your Mother--Please Recycle" yet they make the plastic of the bottle #5, which most cities cannot or will not recycle! Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who struggles to find a face wash that is simple and just "fits" their skin.

    All-Around Great Cleanser

    Having normal/combo skin can be challenging...different issues in different seasons. I used to use an Oily/Normal cleanser for summer and a Dry/Normal for winter. What a pain. Until I tried this cleanser. I love that it's good for my skin whether I am dry or oily. This is truely a great cleanser for ALL SKIN TYPES!!! Last a long time too.
