    Comments about Algenist Purifying & Replenishing Cleanser:

    I have used Algenist's products and loved them. When I saw this cleanser 50% off I thought I would give it a try. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. It does remove makeup, however, it doesn't remove mascara as well as Purity.

      I got the 32 oz size cause I love a pump. This will last years in my shower. I use it with the clarisonic, and it remains frothy for my whole face, neck, and dec. Face is squeaky clean afterwards.

              Like this facial wash. It is thick and creamy---almost reminds me of a hand soap texture. I still need to apply eye makeup remover.

                    Bought to replace night cleanser. It's much harsher than previous brands i bought. It cleans, but I fell it is too harsh for me.

                        I absolutely love this cleanser. I have sensitive skin topped with a moderate case of rosacea and I tried multiple washes and cleansers over the years. I'm so glad I discovered this product. I use it twice a day - in the morning before applying makeup and at night before bed. It removes all my makeup, leaves my face feeling clean and the best part is that I have had zero breakouts from my rosacea or my sensitivity since I started using this about a year ago.

                          Is Algenist Cruelty free? I only purchase products from lines that don't conduct animal testing and would like to try this line.

                            Here is Algenist's official statement regarding animal testing:

                            "Algenist is committed to eliminating animal testing. Innovative solutions are core to our brand and these solutions do not start or stop with a finished product. We are committed to the entire process of product development — from R&D, to production, to how products are brought to market. Ethical practices and procedures are important to us in every step of the value chain, and we believe in finding new, innovative solutions to product and ingredient testing. To that end, we do not conduct animal testing, nor ask others to test on our behalf, unless demanded by the government or regulatory processes to do so. We evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels. Algenist fully supports the development and global adoption of non-animal testing practices."

                            We hope this helps!
