          Comments about BareMinerals Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser:

          I am on my second tube of this wonderful facial cleanser. I first purchased it when I attended a presentation at Ulta and a gentleman from Bare Minerals and a beautiful young blogger (I forget her name) explained some BM products. This cleanser goes on like a thicker cream onto a dry face. ~breathe in deeply through your nose and enjoy the aromatherapy fragrance. Then I wet my fingertips and massage it in where it turns more like a cleanser. Finally, I rinse with a damp warm cloth. Note: if using a white washcloth it will turn a little orange, but it comes out in the wash using hot water.

              My skin dries out with products very easily. My face feels clean, but not stripped. I actually forget to put moisturizer on after I use this because that tight/dry feeling usually prompts me.

                First of all, I love the Bare Mineral product line so I bought the latest line Ageless Genius, along with the Clay Purifier Cleanser thinking it would give my skin a good boost in help in the wrinkle department. Not at all impressed with this line. Will go back to my original Bare Mineral regime. So disappointed.

                            You would still apply and massage into dry skin using your fingertips. Once you begin to see clay begin to transform to white cream, dampen your Clarisonic's brush head and continue to massage using your Clarisonic device. Remove with splashes of warm water or a damp washcloth.

                            This cleanser is formulated with papaya fruit extract, which is a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids, so we would suggest reviewing the ingredients list provided in the product description prior to use. You may wish to consult the manufacturer of your chemical peel or the physician/aesthetician who administered your peel to ensure this cleanser is safe to use.
