Facial Cleansers Review

March 3, 2016

Fresh, Soy Facial Cleanser

This cleanser was a big disappointment for me from all the great reviews I heard about it. I really tried to like this product and I used 3/4 of it before deciding that I really didn’t like it. I love the smell of this cleanser, it has a light fresh cucumber scent and makes my skin smell clean. I found this cleanser did nothing to remove my makeup and on days I was not wearing any makeup it did nothing to remove the dirt and oil from my skin. I think the problem is this cleanser was too gentle, and as a result, it did not clear out my skin at the end of the day and I noticed an increase in my blemishes as a result of not getting my skin totally clear of makeup, dirt and oil at the end of the day. I loved the consistency of this cleanser, and I do have very sensitive skin, but this cleanser was just too gentle and did not clean deeply enough for me.

Soy Face Cleanser


Philosophy, Purity Facial Cleanser

This product is hands-down my favourite facial cleanser and the best one I have ever tried. I love cleansers that have a creamy consistency and do not lather. This cleanser melts off all my makeup and clears the dirt and oil from my face within seconds. The Purity cleanser doesn’t dry out my skin like other harsh cleansers do. This product is really expensive (not as expensive as the soy face cleanser though)  but I will be repurchasing it when I run out because I love it so much. The only thing I don’t like about this product is how awkward it is to squirt out of a fat bottle and I just love things with pumps.

Purity Made Simple


Soap and Glory, Peaches and Clean 4-in-1 Wash Off Deep Cleansing Milk

This cleanser is my favourite drugstore facial cleanser. It smells so peachy and good. The packaging is awesome because it has a pump. I find the way it works is so similar to my Purity cleanser but it’s just a tiny bit less potent. I’d recommend this product if you’re on a budget and want your dime to go a little farther. I found it took me longer to go through this cleanser than to go through the Purity cleanser, even though they have the same amount of product, and I think it’s because you can regulate how much product you dispense easier with the pump and I accidently squirt out too much of the Purity cleanser all the time.
