        Comments about Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel:

        I went into Ulta and an employee came up to me and asked me about my dryness and what I do to help it. I told her I just use neutrogena to take my makeup off and wash my face three times a week. She then showed me this product that washes my face, helps with my dryness AND takes my makeup off all in one go. At first I just thought it was an expensive product that she was trying to push a sale but I bought it and I've been using it just like she told me (morning and night) and also started exfoliating twice a week and moisturizing after each face wash and my face has never felt better! The dryness in my T-zone was horrible and always noticeable when I wear makeup and lately I've gotten tons of compliments about how nice and smooth my face looks! The dryness is gone, if not almost gone! I've recommended this product to two people already and I've only had it a little over a week!

          I was looking for a new great quality face wash, I'm a man but I find many male focused products are either to harsh or ineffective. I was a bit concerned when I saw how much product you get for I believe 32$. I then realized you only need a tiny pea sized amount, the formula is extreamly concentrated. A little goes a long way. This product is soap free so my skin has no residue or yucky feeling after use it's great! I have very sensitive skin and this product didn't dry my skin out! I was very hasadent beacaue of the acids, but it works great! Just make sure your using a heavy moisturizer after use to ensure your skin won't dry out.

          Comments about Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel:

          This cleanser is very effective and removes makeup well. It also leaves the face very smooth due to it's exfoliating properties. However, used on a daily basis it left my skin very dry and a bit red. I also did not care for the medicinal smell of it. It may be okay as an alternating cleanser but it's a bit too harsh for my skin on a regular basis. Would probably be great for someone a bit less sensitive but did not love the creamy cleanser either. Contemplating returning.

                        A:

                        For your skin concerns, we'd recommend Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser. It's a soap-free cleanser, specifically created for problematic skin. This foaming formula dissolves impurities such as makeup, dirt and excess oil and reduces bacteria that can trigger a breakout. A blend of Salicylic and Mandelic Acids exfoliates pores to clarify and help control oiliness, while the antiaging Polyhydroxy Acid formulation helps maintain skin's natural pH balance.

                    • Q:

                      I recently bought this product and I'm wondering if I should switch to the gentle cleansing cream.

                      For about two weeks , twice a day morning and night I've washed my face with the purifying gel then use the soothing toner followed by the protective day cream during the day and hydrogel night cream at night. At first my face broke out which I think was the purging because it seems to clear day by day and my skin has a glow to it but my skin is peeling horrible it's like a desert . Not sure which product is causing the dryness . Should I switch to the gentle cleansing cream? Will switching just that product in my regimine aid with the dry flakey skin I'm having ? Please help . My skin seems to be improving but the dryness is terrible

                        A:

                        To address the dryness you're experiencing, we recommend reducing the frequency of use. Try using Exuviance Soothing Toning Lotion once per day, or every other day.
                        If your dryness persists, try reducing usage of Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel to once a day or incorporating Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Cream.

                        A:

                        Exuviance does not use raw materials derived from "specified risk materials" of animals, including cows (bovine) or other ruminants and, therefore, there is no Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) risk. In addition, Exuviance does not use any ingredients derived from sheep (ovine), pigs (porcine), or goats (caprine).

                        Exuviance may use certain ingredients that are produced by animals, for example, beeswax (produced by bees), lanolin (found in the wool of sheep), lactobionic acid (oxidized form of cow's milk sugar/lactose), silk (from the cocoon of the silkworm) and N-acetyl glucosamine, (an ingredient derived from the shells of marine animals) which are a bi-product of the food industry. There is no risk of BSE transmission from these materials as well.

                        Exuviance does not conduct animal testing or solicit animal testing on our behalf, except where required by law, for its marketed skin care products including the Exuviance and CoverBlend brands. All routine product safety and claim support testing is carried out on human volunteers or using in vitro models.

Our Antiabacterial Cleanser reaches deep into pores to dissolve impurities and help reduce problematic bacteria.

                        A:

                        The two cleansers are similar. Both feature a foaming gel formula that is suitable for all skin types and are formulated with AHAs to brighten skin, improve skin texture, and combat the signs of aging. Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel is formulated with Glycolic Acid (AHA) and Gluconolactone (PHA), while Moisturizing Antibacterial Wash is formulated with Gluconolactone (PHA) alone. Moisturizing Antibacterial Wash is especially ideal for acne-prone skin, as it helps reduce problematic bacteria.
