This is the best cleanser I have ever found. I used to use Cetaphil but I found that it didn't do a great job at removing my makeup. Purpose is just as gentle, it's super inexpensive, never irriattes my skin and easily takes all my makeup off. It is gentle enough that I can even use it to take off my eye makeup. This can be a little hard to find, that's the only downside. Otherwise it is a fantastic product!

I loved this product but I can no longer find it anywhere in my area. I have dry skin so I loved this version but have reverted back to the classic cleanser. It works but can be drying.

I feel clean after I am done, it removes makeup and grim. Sometimes it takes more then a few splashes to get all the product off. No fragrance-bonus!

I really enjoyed this cleanser. My skin was drying out from all the acne killers I was using so I bought this at Big Lots for 1.99. It is soap free, fragrance free, and oil free - so it doesn't irritate the skin. I don't know if it moisturizes, but it does not dry me out and it removes oil and makeup well. I think this is better than Cetaphil and it's cheaper and lathers better. It's a perfect winter cleanser. I better go back to Big Lots and buy the rest since I think it's already discontinued. At 1.99 a tube, what a steal!

Combo,sensitive, mild rosacea>>I finally got around to trying this as I have been totally devoted to Olay's Sensitive-Skin wash for years! Pros: creamy, no offensive smell, lathered nicely, gentle! Cons: I found it left a somewhat tacky residue that didn't feel like moisture to me. I prefer Olay's "residue" as it leaves an almost silky-soft moisture behind..This cleanser made me want to run to my toner quick! Back to the Olay I go!

This is the most gentle cleanser in the drugstore, and Purpose discontinued it. What are you doing J+J? My skin is normal to dry and sensitive, and this was way better than Cetaphil or anything else in the drugstore. It still dried out my sensitive skin a bit, but it was unmatched for the price. The other cleansers I now use are Zia Fresh Cleansing gel and PC Skin Recovery, which are both sulfate-free.

Fantastic product for those that are drying out from Retin-A. I use this at night in rotation with the regular Purpose Gentle Cleanser.

This was my winter alternative to the regular Purpose cleanser when I was on the East Coast. I always keep it on hand, but only use it occasionally when treating myself to an at-home spa night and want something a bit more moistruizing. Regualar purpose works best in the temperate So. Cal winters. Overall, raves for this if you need something with a ouch of moisture that cleans well and doesn't irritate.

Every so often I decide to go back to this and start using this again. I usually do that in the winter when my skin needs an extra gentle cleanser because of the cold dry air. This does a good job of cleansing my face without stripping it. It doesn't remove all of my make-up though.
