Nothing special about it. My skin does feel clean but that's about it, it doesn't really remove any makeup or treat blemishes. It really is gentle I guess.

Don't know why I stopped using this. Wonderful cleanser, no need to buy anything else (but I did, shame on me!) Agree that you can't travel with it no matter what, it leaks everywhere.

Great, gentle cleanser for combination or oily skin. I use it in the morning and haven't had any problems with my skin becoming dry. Only gave 4/5 lipsticks as the packaging isn't great for travel.

This is a very gentle cleanser. I really like this better than cetiphil because it gives a slight foam, whereas cetiphil feels like snot being rubbed on my face. It does not irritate my eyes, even when I open it to search for my face cloth. This is so far the only cleanser that I have bought twice already. It smells like baby shampoo. Great stuff. Very basic and it works great for my skin. But i'm still trying to look for more natural cleansers. If not, i'll still come back to this. A cleanser that doesn't sting your eyes can say a lot.

ok this is probably the worst cleanser ive ever tried. i have oily, non-sensitive skin and this "gentle" cleanser somehow managed to completely dry my face out little by little each day. i used this for 2 weeks, thinking it was something else making my skin dry...and it finally dawned on me that it was THIS. it made the skin around my nose super dry and flakey. the skin on my chin was also dry, flakey, and bumpy. after i'd finish cleansing with this, i would get a ton of little red pimply bumps all over my face and they'd go away after i'd use a moisturizer. how is this gentle if it did this to my face? i dont get it. this didnt even remove my make up properly either. whenever i followed with a toner, there was still residue left on my face that would show up on the cotton ball. i will never buy anything from purpose again.

I personally like this better than Cetaphil. It foams to a fabulous lather and gets your skin really clean without over-drying. Defnitely would recommend but if you want the best gentle cleanser, I recommend Purity Made Simple by Philosophy. Give this a try though; a great drugstore buy.

I just used this for the first time last night, and I was so pleased with the results I had to review it! I've walked by this product for a long time, not really giving it a second thought, since the packaging wasn't really anything special, and it didn't seem to be made by a major brand (like Neutrogenia, Noxima, etc). Then I tried Cetaphil, and wasn't crazy about it (over drying, yet at the same time seemed to leave a film on my skin, which eventually my face erupted from), so I thought this would be the same, but the reviews on here convinced me to spend the $4.77 for 6oz to try it. And boy I am so glad I did. It is a tad on the watery side and isn't super foaming, so I was nervous at first, but it did an EXCELLENT job at cleaning and removing ALL my makeup (I don't wear any waterproof formulations, so I can't speak for that) in one wash!!!! I can't believe how easy it removed it!!!! It left my skin feeling SUPER clean and not overly dry (no more so than with cleansers made for dry skin). No strong fragrances, no stinging of the eyes....I love this product! I am going to use this as my nighttime cleanser to wash off all the makeup and grim from my face before bed! I actually look forward to washing my face now :) I will update if things change....
UPDATE: I'm officially promoting this to HG status. I still look forward to washing my face with this every night. It still gives me a deep fresh clean feeling. I follow with a moisturizer.
I LOVE that it does NOT have any acne fighting ingredients in it. I feel like it is so effective at doing it's job as a cleanser, it doesn't need any irritating products to fight acne. Your face is a clean slate, all residue removed (which keeps my skin acne free and under control). There are plenty of products out there if you want to choose to use acne products after. I find what works best for my acne is NOT using the "acne fighting" products, and use gentle effective products instead. I can't recommend this enough.
UPDATE (1/27/09): I am still in LOVE with this product. Zero new breakouts, and I am now using it in the AM as well. I put some in a 3oz travel bottle and keep it in the shower. If I ever travel I can also just grab that bottle and be good to go. ♥ Definitely HG!!! ♥
UPDATE 8/13/09: Still using this and still loving it! It has radically changed my skin, I barely breakout now if at all. I am now only using the Purpose line, cleanser and moisturizer and I don't have to use another other skin products to keep my skin looking fresh and healthy.
This actually saves me so much money as I can toss all the acne-fighting products I've been using and more expensive cleansers. This is soooo much better than even the h/e cleansers that are $20+ dollars. I ♥ Purpose! I hope they never stop making it....although if they changed the bottle design to make it more travel friendly (not the formula) that would be okay.

This is a great cleanser, but here's a secret. it's the EXXACT same as Clean and Clear gentle foaming cleanser for sensitive skin. you get TWICE as much for a cheaper price. it's even made by the same company.
this is gentle for people who have normal skin types, but i think my skin may be too sensitive for it. it made my skin somewhat tight and dry, but it gets all my makeup off completely and never caused breakouts. i use it to get makeup off and cetaphil gental wash after so my skin doesn't dry out.

HG facial cleanser / soap. Its basic and does the job perfectly. Its the right price and I have heard several gorgeous and young looking older women swear that this is one of their skin secrets.
