    Comments about Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel:

    I really enjoy this cleanser and I use it morning/evening. I have seen a difference in my skin in just a few days of applying it. If you want something good on your face this product is budget friendly and you only need small amount so it will last for quite some time. I enjoyed this so much that I also invested in the moisturizer

      I bought this to be my everyday makeup remover. It dries out my skin so much I put on face lotion afterwards. It also seems to react with my acne wash if I use them within 24 hours of each other (burning, redness).

      I really wanted to love this cleanser because of the great reviews. I went through 2 entire bottles to give it a good shot. During that time, I have never seen so much acne on my face. At any given point, they'd be at least 10 pimples.

      Within days of me switching to another cleanser, my skin started to clear up dramatically.

            I generally find something that works for me and stick with it. I have oily skin and this cleanser is the best I've used ever. It makes me feel clean, controls my oil along side other products I use. May cost more than drug store brands but so worth it.

                      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.

                      Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel does offer a deep clean to remove impurities but we would recommend Exuviance Moisturizing Antibacterial Facial Cleanser for help with more oily/acne-prone skin. 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.
