Great cleanser for my combo skin. Yes, it cleans my face gently...though I'm leaving one star off (only want to do 1/2) because I still have to use eye makeup remover for waterproof mascara. I still love this product because it does clean thoroughly yet doesn't dry my skin! After more than four years of use, I'm buying the largest bottle now, which lasts months and makes this product affordable. Love the soft scent. And, yes, works great with a Clarisonic brush.

I'm so/so with this cleanser.. I mean I like it for lazy days but other than that I wouldn't say this is my HG cleanser. I got this as a gift and started using it for 2-3 months (morning and night) to see how I liked it. At night I wash my face twice with this to ensure I've taken all my make up off even though I don't wear much, just want to make sure nothing is left behind so I can start putting my other night care stuff on. It says its a 3-in-1 product: this I do agree as it cleans well, tones and of course removes make up but you must clean your face twice for that to work I can't see how this would work for one wash - it's too gentle. For reference I have oily skin, and I still had to use a scrub of course 3x/week in conjunction with this.

Other products I want to try from this line: Gel moisturizer (take a deep breathe?), serum (no reason to hide) and the exfoliating wash (micro-delivery something)

Ive gotten this product as a gift and I've used it almost everyday for a year as a face cleanser and makeup remover.

I scrub for 40-60 seconds before rinsing and it leaves my skin looking fresh. Although it claims to be a makeup remover it does not remove all of my Maybelline waterproof mascara. I always have little bits of product left on my lashes. It does however remove my eyeshadow that's partnered with Urban Decay's primer potion.

All in all it's an okay cleanser. I feel like it could do more for the price you pay though. I'll probably find something cheaper that can do just as much or more when I'm done with my current bottle.

This is a fantastic, holy grail product. It's a great value as it has a dual function-makeup remover and cleanser (it removes even stubborn eye makeup effectively, but it's very gentle overall) and one bottle lasts about 8-9 months. I have oily, acne prone skin and this doesn't break me out at all. There is a slight vanilla scent.

I bought this online at sephora and got the large size since it came in a pack with the purity cleansing oil.ni probably should have gotten a smaller size first because I don't enjoy using it because of the scent. Overall it works great and I have noticed a lot of the acne on my forehead has cleared up, which is probably the most important thing. All the other reviews that I saw on makeup alley and the sephora reviews say that the scent isn't too strong, or that it smells nice, but I guess my nose just doesn't like it. It's probably just my personal preference is different, but Overall I would buy it again if not for the smell, which is kind of flowery.

The best! I use coconut oil to remove makeup at night and purity in the morning. My skin has never been better.

This is a nice gentle, non stripping cleanser. I really like this on my combo/oily/sometimes acne prone skin. Most cleansers designed for my skin type are too drying and leave me feeling dehydrated, even with a moisturizer, but this did not. I cleansed twice and followed up with an eminence toner and moisturizer. It left my skin soft and clean. I checked the ingredients and it is all good stuff. No added fragrance that I saw so it won't irritate sensitive skin types. I think I will go back to ulta and buy the bigger bottle once my travel sized one is all gone. Only complaint is the price because it's not technically a "professional" product but is still pretty pricey.

During Sephora's black friday and boxing day specials, i went a little overboard and bought a bunch of these. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that they've changed the formula of Purity. It doesn't feel the same and it doesn't clean the same either. I don't feel like I get a good clean after using this product. I also felt like I needed to use more of this product to get some sort of clean. I don't think that it had provided my skin with the same kind of benefits as before. Disappointing.
