Honest reviews



I can’t tell if it is working or not… but the reason I gave it a three stars is because, when it arrived damaged twice. It leak inside the bag. I sent back the first one thinking maybe it was a process wrong but second one came just like the first one…I will probably not order this again.

Non-irritating, non drying, and a great value

I have been using this for years at night. (In the morning I use Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.) The combination of these two seem to work for me and I have fewer blemishes now than ever. Other products that I have tried have been too irritating or drying. When I was younger I needed a cleanser that would reduce the oil but now I have skin that is getting dry, and yet I still have occasional blemishes. Finding a product that would not break out my skin but not strip it either was a challenge. The Purpose Cleanser is the closest I have come to meeting both objectives. I also like the fact that there is no scent.

Dermatologists say its a good cleanser, but it was not gentle enough for my sensitive skin

If you have problematic skin (rosacea, seb derm, etc etc.) try Aveeno’s “Positively Radiant” cleanser instead. I can use the Aveeno product twice a day without my skin feeling stripped, and with a washcloth it will get my eye makeup off as well (without stinging my eyes.)

Gentle, doesn’t dry out your skin, washes off easily

This is a great cleansing wash that my wife’s dermatologist recommended. It is ideal as a face wash because it doesn’t dry out your skin after using it the way some astringent washes do, leaving your skin scaly or rough. It also washes off easily and doesn’t leave a thin film behind like other washes. It is very good at cleaning but also quite gentle. Highly recommended if you have more sensitive skin and need a face wash that doesn’t completely dry you out.A note on the price:Amazon’s pricing is really quite good and just about as cheap as a big-box store. Shipped to your door free makes it an even better deal. Unless you really want to save twenty or thirty cents, get it from Amazon.

The most gentle cleanser on the market!

I love this cleanser that is so very gentle. Was highly recommended by my dermatalogist. Delivery came early and price was reasonable.

I love this gentle cleanser!

I was looking for something to calm, but still leave my sensitive skin clean, as what I was using for the colder months was startign to leave my skin too oily. I have sensitive but oil-prone skin (only break out ocassionally), so I asked around for something that would be gentle, but still cleanse enough. Purchased a bottle of Purpose after a friends recommendation, and I love it! It has a nice lather and rinses clean. My husband has even been sneaking uses of this, and he’s picky, so that says a lot. Since I’ve been using this, my few breakouts have been more mild and cleared up quicker.I will definitely be purchasing again!

Best cleanser for sensitive skin

My skin is very sensitive and can get dry and itchy, as well as broken out at times. I tried this cleanser on a whim and really like it. It’s very gentle but makes my skin feel clean without drying it. It also completely cleans up oily makeup remover. I will keep using this product.

Very gentle. Not great for oily skin

I like this soap and use it when I get dry and flaky from Retin-A Micro and/or RX benzol peroxide gels. Also good for wintertime when my skin feels itchy and dry. When my skin is normal, it’s oily and acne prone. This soap does not seem to cut the mustard. Soooooo, I keep a bottle of this in my shower so I can use it if my skin starts to get irritated for whatever reason. Nice stuff. A soap in between cleansing cream and harsher foaming cleansers. In between.

Good for Acne Pores Smaller. Takes a couple days to work!

I bought this at target and the first few days I did not think it was working. I was tempted to go buy a new cleanser like cetaphil or cerve but I wanted to give this a chance. My instinct was right It really works well for my acne. It is very gentle and lathers well. Cleans my skin and makes my pores a lot smaller. You can feel your skin tightening after you use it. I am so glad I gave it a chance cause it is so INEXPENSIVE and it actually works! I use This for my cleanser I also use Queen Helens mud mask and the green one for acne, Manuka Honey for a mask to help my scars, and witch hazel with rose hips in it for my toner.

Better than products 5 times the cost!

Use it at least twice per day, and your skin will become so incredibly soft. Since it’s gentle, I’m able to use spot treatment during breakouts without overdrying. If you have sensitive skin, this is the way to go.

SAFE and gentle

Thorough cleanser that never over-dries or damages my skin and is even effective on eye makeup. Can be counted on as a superb cleanser that leaves no unnecessary residue. Have been using it for years.

John Patterson, CA

Best face cleanser!

Believe me when I write that I am a product junkie!! This stuff while inexpensive and without any fancy scents or skin reactions (like cooling or warming) is a fantastic product. It cleans my very combination skin well, minimizes the appears of nose pores, minimizes breakouts and it doesnt dry my skin. This is the best facial cleanser for people with normal to dry OR combination skin.
