I bought this on a whim because it was on sale at TJ Maxx and I've had good luck with Shiseido sunscreen in the past. I have very sensitive skin which is also oily and breaks out fairly regularly. It is a thick cream which doesn't foam much (which is weird in a product called a foam.) It leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean, but not dried out and stripped. I noticed my skin having a mild reaction when I use it. Though I react to a lot of things, so it is not 100% certain that this product is the problem yet. But I would use and buy again because it does such a great job of bringing down pimples. Last night I noticed breakouts from a new product, so I used the Pureness and Lush Vanishing Cream. (And it's definitely the Pureness, because my Vanishing Cream is old and has been completely worthless at clearing my skin lately.) Today I don't even see the pimples. So I would keep it on hand for days like that, but unless the reaction is being caused by another product, I would not use Pureness as a daily cleanser. Which is too bad, because it really works wonderfully.
Love this product, makes your skin feel squeeky clean!
lovely product! beautiful lather, cleanses gorgeously, lasts ages!! might have a strong fragrance for some but I found it pleasant!!
Shiseido seems to be the only Asian brand that can really be competing in the mainstream US beauty market. I believe it is because their products perform so much better than most other brands. Pureness cleanser is not exception. It cleans so well that I can notice less blackheads right away. It is also very gentle around the eye area. Something that cleans so deeply but still manages to work on sensitive skin. Well done, Shiseido!
Its a good product that i would buy again if i had acne-prone and oily skin. This product cleanses skin very well; it gives your skin a squeaky clean but it feels a bit tight but if you use the softener and moisturizer you should be fine. Overall, its a good product of you use it with the complete line. Its improved my skin to looking quite healthy though I'm planning on switching to The Skincare also by Shiseido since my skin is now dryer than oily
I've tried so many facial cleanser before shisedo's one. and i've to admit that this is what my skin really need, it has something in the formula that leaves my face oilfree and at the same time not dry, this product is like miracle. I've to admit too since im using this product, my face only have one or two pimples (it used to be a lot and hurt) during 'that' time of the month. Its a really good product for combination skin like me
I absolutely love this cleanser it leaves my skin super clean. It removes all my make up and removes the excess oil. I have oily skin so love that it leaves my face dry, so keep in mind if you have very dry skin this might not be the cleanser for you. I always use my moisturizer after washing my face and at night my night cream so my face doesn't feel too dry after. It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way so it's worth every penny.
I LOVE THIS STUFF. I am 22 years old and up until now I have had pretty good skin the beginning of this year my skin started breaking out, not sure why.... anyway I madly tried NUMEROUS products to help my skin (it became oily and I was breaking out on my cheeks and chin), someone had recommended Shiseido but I thought it would be too expensive. A few months later I decided after nothing was working (Aesop, Clinique, phisohex, Aveeno etc) I'd check out Shiseido, I bought the 1-2-3 kit for only $30AUD. I have been using this kit religiously everyday since July 2013 (1+ month) and there is a HUGE IMPROVEMENT in my skin. My cheeks have completely cleared up. It did take a while for a change to be noticed but after one month, I can tell my skin is smoother, clearer and overall complexion has improved! It is definitely worth the price because a tiny bit goes a very long way!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AND THE REST OF THE PURENESS RANGE!
Coming back to comment as I had said earlier in my review in May!!! I just luv this cleanser!!!! It does its job!!! And keeps skin nice and fresh!!! It has saved my skin!
wow... this DEEP cleans and makes your face feel fresh and clean. you need a VERY VERY VERY tiny amount cause this things suds up on your face easily. so for $20 a tube, i know this will last a very long time in the long run. as a makeup remover, i guess it removes a lot (revlon colorstay) but not completely. the cleanser itself is a light blue/white cream with little beads, but i think they dissolve once its rubbed in. i definitley recommend this as an everyday, tho a lil pricey it will last a long time cause you definitley DO NOT need a lot!
