I had to try this because of the big hype!
Not bad! I had no complaints. It didn't break me out at all or make my skin too dry/oily.
The only downside is that it didn't really say what is what living up to. It didn't really cleanse my pores or take off that much makeup. When I used my toner after, there was a good bit of makeup (more than usual;not a lot though). I wasn't expect much because of the price. It definitely is a great cleanser if you plan on using it in the morning before you apply makeup, not at night taking it off.
Can't say enough great things about this cleanser. I use this most days and it takes of my mineral foundation with ease.
Ok so first background check on my skin, it it combination, and supeeeeeer acne prone. Really oily on my nose, dry around my mouth, and slightly oily on my forehead and normal everywhere else. I love this wash!!<3 It is so good and dirt cheap! Just a little under 4 dollars. I have been using this for about 3 months and it truly is amazing. It really cleans and remove all my excess oil while not stripping my skin. I would choose this over cetaphil any day because it actually contains beneficial ingrediants that keep the skin healthy. The only thing i wish was different is that it came in a pump, not a tube. KEEP IN MIND, when switching face washes your skin might actually tweak out a bit to adjust because you're using a different product, and that is what happened with mine. After a week, it really was amazing.:) Now though, I'm on a retanoid at night, clindamycin, benzoyle peroxide wash, and minocycline in the morning so I just use this at night. It is being a tad drying now because of all the acne medications so sadly, and this really kills me, I'll probably have to find a more suitable wash for my dryer skin right now.:( I really cannot wait to start using this wash again, it's just that great!! Try this product out and stick with it, you will love it.:)
This is a great, price friendly product. I have been using it for about 10 months now and have gone through two bottles. It does what it claims. I have very sensitive skin and are very prone to acne. I use this wash faithfully, two times a day and would not change one thing about it.
This has got to be MY FAVORITE cleanser!
I just feel so clean afterward its amazing. I wear a lot of make up so nothing feels better than a fresh clean face after a extremely long day. After a while my face did get a little tired of it so i had to take a break, but I will be back on it soon! Just wish it had a pump or an easier cap.
In short, Its amazing!
Really wish this face wash worked for me, but it broke me out like no other face wash has before, barring Cetaphil. Wil stick with Purpose for now.
I am so happy I discovered this product exists! It has become my BFF. First of all, I love the smell! It smells so refreshing and clean! I love how my face feels after I use this cleanser...so soft and clean. I do use a moisturizer right after so I don't know if it is too drying but I will say my face doesn't feel tight or extra dry or flaky after cleansing and before the moisturizer.
After I started using this, my face has been so clear! I get breakouts here and there, especially at the time of the month. I have maybe been using this for a month now and *knock on wood* I am clear! I have noticed that it has helped me get less oily throughout the day, which is a huge plus for me! I only use it in the mornings, so I am not sure how it is at taking makeup off, I use another makeup remover, but I am sure it does the job because it cleans down deep. So far I am loving this cleanser...I might update this review after using the cleanser and not using a moisturizer right after to see if it is too drying.
Still loving this cleanser! The only drugstore, that I know of, that sells this is Walgreens and it isn't all Walgreens that do which is a bit of a bummer. I stocked up on these the last time I was at the Walgreens near me that does sell it (I basically bought all that were left haha), I did try and see how my skin would be if I didn't use a moisturizer after using this cleanser and I have to say that is isn't drying at all! Yay!
Best Cleanser in every way!!!!!!! dirt cheap and took care of my acne in no time. I'm in my 5th bottle. love it and wouldn't trade for anything!
My HG of facial cleansers. I have sensitive, normal to dryish skin, and this soap-free cleanser has been the best I've tried. It never clogs me up and it's always there for the rescue whenever I stray to another cleanser/foundation that breaks me out. I use mineral oil or Clinique's Take The Day Off Balm to remove makeup & sunscreen first, then wash with Basis to remove any residue. It doesn't leave my face dry or moisturized really, just perfectly clean. I will repurchase this forever.
I picked up this product at WalMart the other day when looking for a cheap cleanser to clean off my makeup prior to using my acne face wash. I was intrigued because it claims it has no soap in it which I liked because I'd rather not use soap on my face because it is so drying. I have found that this product claims to lather, but not anywhere near a foaming face wash. I'm curious as to how much it would lather if I used it on my Clarisonic. Ultimately, it does what it is supposed to and it smells quite pleasant, therefore for the price and what I'm looking for, I'd definitely purchase it again.
