I use this cleanser in the morning to prep my face for foundation. It is a light exfoliating, non-irratiating cleanser. I have used it for years and absolutely love the way my skin feels after i scrub off the dead skin, it almost glows. It lets my moisturizer soak up easier and my mineral makeup set smoother. would defiantly recommend!

This is a product I wanted to love but it is just to hard. I do not want to have to put alot of thought into cleansing but this does just that. I never know exactly how much to use. I either use to much or not enough. It does not do a very good job at cleansing but does a so-so job at exfoliating. Definitely would not repurchase. I need something a little more simple at the end of the day when washing my face.

I am completely unable to stick with a cleanser. I buy a new one, use it for awhile, get tired of it and switch. I almost bought this when it first came out, but decided it must just be a gimmick. Well, I finally decided to give it a try, and I wish I had sooner!After using it morning and night for the first few weeks, I am impressed, but I'm curious if the results will last. I've really wanted a detergent free cleanser, especially for the winter when my combo skin gets dry, but I could never find one that really got my skin clean. This cleanser is a different story! I will admit, mixing it with water is a bit of a pain, and the smell is not great, but it doesn't last, and these are things I can easily live with for these kind of results. My Clarisonic started dying, and I was frustrated because I couldn't find a cleanser that really felt like it was getting my skin clean without it. Until this one... the Rare Minerals cleanser leaves my skin so clean, fresh, soft and smooth. The difference was noticeable after just a few uses. I kept looking in the mirror all day, thinking I must be imagining things, but each time I was amazed at how great my skin looked. I use more than the directions call for, so I get that elusive foaming action everyone has mentioned (it doesn't foam like a cleanser with detergent, but it does get bubbly). I also like to let it dry on my face after I've massaged it around, and then take it off with a washcloth. The number one ingredient is clay, so if you have dry skin, this is going to leave it feeling tight. This doesn't bother me, because my skin doesn't look dry or flaky, it just feels a bit tight which is completely remedied by adding the rest of my skincare regimen. I don't feel that this cleanser is stripping or drying my skin out. In fact, my skin has never looked or felt better after just cleansing. One more thing to mention, I can see how this would not be ideal for removing heavy makeup. It handles powder and mineral foundations just fine, but I can see it struggling with heavier stuff. So it is probably not for everyone.Now I just have to wait and see if these results last. I had a fling with Fresh's Umbrian Clay bar, and had similar results at first, but after a bit it felt like it was no longer effective. So we'll see... I'll update!UPDATE: This is the first cleanser that I have bought and bought and bought again! I am in love. Even after using it for months on end, it still leaves my skin bright, fresh, soft and smooth every time. I wouldn't use it to remove heavy makeup, but this product has helped my skin become makeup optional, so that really isn't an issue. Never thought I'd get a deep clean feeling from a soap-free cleanser, but this one proved me wrong! Now that it's so much a part of my routine, I don't even think about the whole mixing thing.

This face wash did make my skin smooth, but it did nothing for my breakouts. My skin never felt completely clean after I used this cleanser. It made my skin feel very nice, but I just was getting too many breakouts. I used this cleanser for about 2 months.

If I could give this product a ZERO I would. It was a free gift with purchase and I end up throwing it away. It felt like I was washing my face with corn starch or something. No lather, just made an odd grey paste. YUCK!!!! It went straight into the trash can. I would not even give this one away. I am very shocked it got such good reviews.

I actually got this when I bought a RareMinerals set at Sephora. First, I love the smell. It is very easy to use. Oftentimes I use this as a mask by adding only a very small amount of water. It seems to do a good job at removing my makeup, but it is not so good at eye makeup. Plus, I don't think you are really supposed to get it too near your eyes anyway. The powder also acts as a light exfoliant. It's great. Not my HG, but definitely pretty awesome.

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Not Sure
I didn't think I was going to like this, but after getting a few days' worth of samples I gave it a try. Even after the first use, there was a noticeable improvement in my skin. After three days, the improvement was so remarkable, I was hooked. I have sensitive skin and am prone to cystic acne on my chin. I had a particularly bad patch of acne on my chin when I first started using this cleanser, and within those first three days, the improvement in my acne was so dramatic I was astonished. Not only that, but the rest of my skin felt smoother and softer. I used to have "bumpies" in certain areas around my eyes and nose, but this smoothed it all out. I LOVE the smell of this product; it's a nice soothing smell that I really enjoy while washing my face before bed. No nasty perfumes here! I like that you can add more or less water to suit your needs; add less water for more exfoliation. It exfoliates, but it doesn't burn (like my previous cleanser sometimes did) or leave the skin feeling dry or flaky. One of the BE professionals that recently was in town here suggested that once a week, you can mix the cleanser with just the smallest amount of water to create a paste that you can use as a mask. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse. I love this cleanser and can't say enough good things about it!

Oh BM how I love thee.... I tried to stray from you, but it ended up being a disaster! Please forgive me!!!I have combination/acne prone skin and need some exfoliation without stripping my skin too harshly since my skin is very sensitive and will turn really red very easily. This product is PERFECT for every day use for me and I do not have to use a separate product to exfoliate.The only thing is that you MUST make sure it's rinsed off of your skin very well (just rub circular motions on your face to ensure the fine product rinses all out) otherwise you'll be left feeling slightly dry. If you make sure to rinse it off very well your skin will almost feel perfectly moisturized, but of course a separate moisturizer is recommended.

I had mixed feelings about trying this, but after a few weeks, I am finding that I really love it. Leaves my skin silky soft, not tight, but clean. It removes all my makeup--nothing left on the towel! My skin feels so soft that I forget to moisturize now.

I received several general samples of this with a recent Nordies order. I had enough packets to use it for almost a week. I don't like scented facial products, so the natural, earthy scent of this product didn't bother me. It does have a weird, pastey texture. It reminded me of drywall spackle. It is hard to determine the right amount of water to get the product just right. It cleaned my combo skin well and did not leave any residue and caused no irritation. I did not find that it was too gritty. Overall it is a nice, basic cleanser.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
