Overall, I really love this product!
It makes my skin feel super clean and even helps with the few breakouts I have every month. I originally bought the 8 oz. bottle for $20 from Sephora. I think it's a good price because although it's a smaller bottle, the product works well even using small amounts. With this product, less really is more! Although the scent may not be the best, look on the bright side; there's no harsh chemicals to make it smell better. And the scent isn't horrible to begin with anyway. Another bad thing is if the product isn't completely rinsed off, it leaves my skin feeling very tight. Besides that, this is definitely my HG cleanser!
- amazing cleanser
- leaves skin feeling super clean
- removes even the most waterproof mascaras and eyeliners
- a little goes a long way
- helps with acne (an added bonus I wasn't expecting!)
- scent may be strong
- if not completely washed off, residue will be left making skin feel tight
I am constantly trying different products so I opted for the 3 oz sample - size bottle, which gets a low rating for packaging as the cap is screw-off. BUT, I noticed in store at Sephora that even the larger bottles were screw off or a squeezy top - didn't they used to sell this as a pump?
I have repurchased this product at least 3 or 4 times over the last 10 years because it is a solid, gentle, nice-smelling cleanser. It doesn't do anything to improve my skin, but it is a solid standby for a basic cleanser. The name "purity" is fitting. I like using it with my Clarisonic because the Clarisonic is so abrasive I like to balance it out with an extra gentle cleanser. A good, mid priced cleanser, I recommend.
I'm not sure if I like this product or not. It cleanse my face very easy and there is no makeup left after cleaning, but my skin feels dry afterwards.. I don't even have a dry skin or so and I also use the 'Hope in a Jar'. Before I started using the product I never had any problems with my skin looking a little too dry. First, I assumed it was my Chanel(perfect lumiere) foundation, but later on I realised that it was the Purity Cleanser.(I used an another cleanser for a while).
Pro; it's very affordable, a little goes a long way and it cleanse your face very good.
I loved this cleanser, it works great at removing make up. I liked that aspect because its nice to wash my face without having to use a separate makeup remover. The downside is that my face felt extremely dry after using this cleanser (even though I have combination oily skin and use a moisturizer). This cleanser also breaks out my skin which is also why I would not repurchase. I wouldn't recommend the use of this as an everyday cleanser since it can be drying.
I wasn't overly impressed with this as cleanser. I don't think it's the miracle cleanser that some make it out to be. Without seriously moisturizing my skin afterwards, I think its a bit drying on my already dry skin. I tend to remove my makeup before washing my face, but it does take off the stuck on mascara and eyeliner well. However, as someone with generally good skin, I just don't think cleanser as important as moisturizers and serums that stay on the skin, so for what it is, I just don't think it's worth the price. It's not overly expensive, but at the end of the day, it's just a cleanser. I was happy to use up my sample, but I don't need to purchase the full size.
So i havent been using this cleanser for very long, but it has already really helped my skin! it takes makeup off VERY easily and it is even gentle enough to use on eyes, plus my skin has cleared up. i have combo skin, with a really oily nose and dry cheeks and yes it did dry out my face a little, but i used a moisturizer afterwards and it fixed that problem. The scent isnt the best but it is bearable and the packaging is so cute! hope this review helped!
I try to be open minded (after all thats what purity simply advertises) about the products I try, though when I read reviews about this I was scared.
Nonetheless, I got a one ounce sample from Sephora and I've been using it for over a week now. It's the best makeup remover/cleanser I've ever used.
All I need is a small amount to remove all my makeup. It not only removes my makeup, Purity provides a sheer glow to my skin, makes it feel clean and supple. My skin just feels awake, alive. I feel like its help my face achieve a flawless look without foundation. I've never been more comfortable without it.
I actually like the smell of it. I plan to get the full 32 oz bottle soon. I just can't get enough of this wishery.
Would I buy this again? Yes, yes a million times yes.
Ha I just realized I didnt write a review on this after using it for so long? LOL
I use this cleanser with my clarisonic. It is gentle, non foaming and effective. I dont believe in spending a lot of money on expensive cleanser. Usually I buy 1 litre of purity cleanser from the philosophy website and this could last like 1 yr. Wait for the philosophy sales.
I started using this product after a Sephora SA put some samples into my shopping bag. I loved the samples enough to buy the full sized (8oz) bottle for $20. I don't feel that this is an expensive cleanser even when compared to drugstore cleansers. Even ds prices have gone up and up recently and I expect this bottle to last me for a long time as only a small amount of product is needed. I have sensitive, dry skin and this removes makeup and cleanses well without leaving my skin feeling irritated or tight. It doesn't cause or contribute to breakouts. I will definitely repurchase this.
I unfortunately spent a lot of money on this cleanser. I was really looking for that miracle product and the sales lady at Sephora said its a best seller. I gave it about three weeks and saw absolutely no results. And then BAM I woke up and had huge red welts all over my face. I stopped using the product and three days later they were gone. I think the ingredients were a bit too harsh for my skin--although the whole marketing is "purity" the ingredient list is quite lengthy.
