I purchased this a few years back after hearing amazing reviews. I also had a friend who swore by this. I ended up buying a big bottle at Sephora, thinking Go big or go home. Boy was I wrong!
My face instantly broke out after using this. Huge cysts, mostly on my chin.
I stuck by it for a few more days, and I was convinced it was Purity. No other part of my routine had changed.
So in the end, it went back to Sephora. I didn't even think it removed makeup well or leave my face clean. It just seemed overpriced, overhyped, and disappointing.
I bought this product because one of my friends suggested I should buy this and use it right away after she saw my face. I used to have clear skin and I was proud of it. I still don't know the reason, but 2 years ago I start to break out crazily around my cheeks and it was those hard and painful acne that leave scars. Let me tell you that it is not a miracle product that you use it once or twice and see the result of clearing face. I was quite disappointed at first because I did not see any change, I was still breaking out, however after two or three months, I noticed that I do not feel the bumps whenever I wash my face. For me (I guess combination skin but now my face is getting drier), I would give 5 out of 5 because it helped me a lot, but for my mom who has very sensitive and dry skin, it sting her on her first trial, so I guess it depends on different types of skin of different people. If you want to give it a try, I would recommend using a facial brush because it is quite difficult to cream a foam with your hands - I use Olay's Pro-X brush.
I must be allergic to some ingredient in this product. It is fine for every once in a while, I like the smell, which is slightly herbal and I want to love it, really I do, but if I use it for more than three days in a row, my skin starts to flake and burn. I get scaly dry patches that HURT and turn red. As soon as I stop using it, my skin starts healing. This happened to me years ago when I first bought the product, but I was hoping it was a fluke. Nope. Back then I had to use primrose oil to soothe the burning patches and it was the same old song and dance this time around as well. I don't even have particularly sensitive skin.
I purchased this cleanser about three weeks ago and I have been using it every day. I wear dark eye makeup and it would normally take 2-3 washes to get it all off. With this cleanser, it only takes one wash. Be careful as a lot of product comes out of the bottle but you only need a small amount to get a good clean. Overall, I love what this cleanser does to my face. I find that I actually look forward to washing my face. I would highly recommend this product.
I heard great things about this cleanser, so I decided to try it. I was just looking for a simple daily cleanser. If I had known what was in store for me....I would NOT have purchased this product. It made my skin itchy and it would make it turn red! It really irritated it. My skin really isn't too sensitive anyways...it was pretty strange! Anyways, I'm taking Purity back to the store, and I am in hope of finding a better cleanser.
LOVE this cleanser. I have ridiculously dry skin, and this cleanser was the only one that I've tried that doesn't leave my skin feeling tight. It's supposed to be a 3-in-1 product: cleanser, toner, makeup remover. I still use a toner after this because I feel that it makes all of my other skin care products go on much smoother, but I don't have to use an eye makeup remover anymore. I love that I only have to use a dime-sized amount to clean my entire face meaning that this product is totally cost effective AND will last me forever.
For those of you having issues about it not removing all of your makeup, the packaging does say to massage it into your skin for one minute... Do that and you'll find that it'll do a much better job cleansing your skin.
I love this cleanser!! I was used the clinique line for many years, and it became very drying. I switched to purity--my skin feels very good after cleansing and doesn't feel tight. My skin is also very sensitive, I had no problems in that area either. I would definitely recommend to all.
My skin: oily/dehydrated, sensitive, clog-prone
This removes makeup well, but I found it too drying and irritating for my skin type. My skin got very dehydrated, causing it to produce more oil. It's supposed to be ok for sensitive skin, but it has quite a few irritating essential oils. I don't recommend for very sensitive skin, but your results may differ.
This cleanser is so gentle and effective! It takes a whole day's worth of eye makeup, foundation, natural oils, and dirt off in just a few seconds! It's very gentle on my acne prone skin and never overdries my skin. I love it!
I used this product once a day before bed for a little over a week after. I finally caved after hearing such great things about it. The product promises to remove every speck of makeup, tone and moisturize your skin. As promised, all of my make up came off and my skin felt extremely clean. However, as I washed my face I felt a tingle. After rinsing the product off my face felt tight. After 2 days I noticed my nose was flaking and my forehead was breaking out. I gave it a few more days and it only made everything worse. I have since returned it and my skin is back to normal. Never again.
