I've used bareMinerals make up for a few years now on and off but it's only within the last six months or so that I tried some of their facial care products. My Mum knew how much I like the brand so put me together a little set of a few different products for my birthday. One of the items I received was the bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser which currently sells for between £11 and £14 online so it's worth shopping around a bit before buying.
==bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser==
The cleanser comes in a 177ml pump top plastic bottle which is white with a faint flock pattern in the background with the product name displayed very plainly in black. The bottle is much understated but in my opinion it looks good, it also comes in a lovely card box which has the flock pattern on it again but this time in bright pink. This is said to be a very gentle, purifying cleanser which removes make up and gets rid of impurities whilst rebalancing the skin giving it a soft and smooth complexion. Skin is said to be left feeling clean, hydrated and renewed.
Dispensing the cleanser is really easy, only a small amount comes out of the bottle but as you only need a pea sized amount this is ideal as it stops you using too much. I usually lather the cleanser up in the palm of my hand before applying to my face as I find this more effective, you get lots of lovely foamy lather which I like in a cleanser. I then massage the lathered cleanser into my face and rinse with warm water, the cleanser is intended to be used morning and night. When applying the cleanser to my face the first thing I noticed was how light it felt, mainly because it lathered up so much, but it almost feels silky on the skin which is lovely. The cleanser has a very faint floral scent; I wouldn't usually be a fan of this but as it's so subtle it's quite pleasant. When removing the cleanser my skin always feels really fresh and clean, I find it removes make up well, even waterproof mascara. I suffer with sensitive eyes so have to be careful about even using eye makeup let alone what I use to remove it but I've found bareMinerals to be really gentle. It's rare to find a cleanser good enough to ensure you don't have dark circles under your eyes the morning after trying to remove waterproof mascara but this does the job perfectly. Initially my skin does feel hydrated but I often find that after using this cleanser if I don't moisturise my skin feels a bit dry and tight which is obviously disappointing. It's not often I don't moisturise but it's worth mentioning especially as it claims to hydrate the skin.
I've really enjoyed using this cleanser; I alternate between this and a few other products though mainly because it can leave my skin feeling a little dry, especially over the winter months. The cleanser isn't badly priced, although it isn't that cheap but as you only need a tiny amount the bottle lasts for ages. It leaves skin feeling really clean and does a brilliant job of removing makeup.
