I received this product for free from Influenster to test out and give my honest opinion.
My review is my own honest opinion. I have tried this brand before and I was neither put off or impressed. This product, however, stands out from the crowd. First, as silly as it may sound, there is a large bubble in the bottle that was fun to play with. I know that isnt exactly about the product...but the kids and I got a solid half hour playing with it on our first day with this product.
It is beautifully holographic. I like the visual appeal of this product. That is a major selling point for me. I wish the bottle was a little more decorative and I would buy it exclusively for the visual appeal.
As far as the actual face wash goes, this worked very well. Since face wash is only on the face for a short period of time, I do not look for any major skin benefits. This did a great job cleaning my skin. I tested this with a full face of makeup on multiple occasions and it did very well with only a few failures to adequately remove all of my mascara.
My skin felt very clean upon washing. I found the matte but not dry skin very interesting. My dry skin didnt feel as dry as face wash usually leaves it feeling. That said, it didnt remedy my currently dry skin. My skin stayed clear and I had no acne flare ups while using them.
It took me two weeks to get used to the small amount of product needed for each wash. I normally use approximately a nickel sized amount of face wash. This stuff is wildly viscous. I used about the amount of a pea...or between a third and a fourth of a dime if we stick with the coin references. If you use too much it would take a while to scrub it all off. This is the thickest face wash I recall ever using. I believe that I will still have product in the bottle a year (or possibly two years) from now.
I really like this and I am honestly debating making this my permanent face wash. I highly recommend.

Purity is a good name for the brands Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser because it felt very clean and pure on my skin. I waited to review because I wanted to try the product for several weeks to see how my skin reacted. I would describe my skin as combo that fluctuates toward dry when I dont wear makeup and oily when I do.
For the first week of the trial, I used just Purity and a simple clean-skincare moisturizer. At first, my skin felt overt dry but never flaky. If I didnt get my moisturizer on pretty soon after cleansing, my skin felt tight from drying out. At that point, I was really skeptical about the product even thought it cleanses really well.
I continued the trial and by the second week, my skin felt great! Not too dry, not too oily. By the third week, I was wearing makeup again and my face felt oily even after proper makeup removal. Puritys Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser did a wonderful job getting last vestiges of makeup that my normal routine apparently left behind. I was amazed at what was left in my pores after micellar water and blue lotus milk. However, my face felt oily by bedtime and was very oily the next day. Anytime I wore makeup, I had to increase using the Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser to at least 2 times a day, and 3 on some days.
As for the mattifying power, my skin which is normally not shiny at all, had a glossy, clean sheen after using the cleanser. It didnt look bad, but it definitely wasnt the matte look I was expecting. The packaging is ok, although I forgot some days I was using facial wash because the bottle and color look more like shampoo. I found myself over pouring and having to put some back. A taller, thin bottle would be more of a mental trigger that this was a face cleanser and a lot goes a long way.
Overall, I would recommend it if 1) you have skin on the oilier side (def not for dry skin) and 2) dont wear a waterproof makeup. While the cleanser did get the waterproof makeup off, it didnt get rid of the oily sensation left behind. The mattifying power was kind of weak too. From my experience, this is a skip for me.

My go to make up remover. this cleanser is so effective and removes all of my make up . i prefer these 1000% over make up wipes , make up wipes make me lose lashes and irritate my under eyes. This cleanser does not irritate your skin nor does it cause you to lose eye lashes. a little pricey but worth it , lasts me so long! Philosophy Purity Made Simple Oil-Free Cleanser

This cleanser works really well to clean my skin without making it feel super striped and tight. The squeeze bottle packaging is super convenient! It smells very fresh and clean! I would definitely repurchase this!

Fabulous product. Breaks down oils and makeup left over from the day. leaves the skin feeling fresh, but not dry like other cleansers. I personally would add scent to this because I do like scented products, and I feel like this does not smell good, but it wouldnt be a deal breaker for me.
MTaylor from Manchester CT
Love the way this face cleanser removes my eye makeup, without any oils to irritate my eyes.

I have been using this cleanser for a couple of months now and would recommend to everyone! Leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean. Great for sensitive skin or irritated skin. I use it after different skin treatments like microneedling to help with a gentle cleanse.

I was using this product for a long time, I really didn't noticed any difference, and it is overpriced

This really is a great face wash. After using this product for several years I can honestly say is leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated and never leaves that tight feeling that some skin products leave you with.
Ndj516 from Charlotte, NC
After the very first use, I noticed an unrelenting oil free matte finish to my face and a glow that lasted all day. I will be purchasing 2 more and I wish this came in a mega size on auto delivery

I love this cleanser for several reasons. It easily, completely and gently removes all traces of makeup. It leaves your face feeling clean but not dry. Definitely recommend!
Cindy G from Elon NC
I love this product. I've been using for a couple years. Takes makeup off and mascara off easy and quick. No sting if you get it in your eyes. Best makeup remover!

The best cleanser!
Proartisrtybyfrosty from Tampa Florida
This is a very concentrated amazing whipped cream like suds cleanser for combination to an oil your skin condition. Extremely concentrated, water activated foaming cleanser that will remove make up and cleanse my skin.

I have been using this for YEARS. I love this stuff. It seriously is the perfect formula for removing makeup and not removing essential skin elements. It is a little costly, but so worth it because a little goes a long way. I am a repeat customer and can't imagine using anything else.

I have been using this face wash for years. It gently cleanses my skin while completely removing my makeup, including my waterproof mascara! I would not change a thing about this product
karleybb0dd from undisclosed
I used this product for a while but I really didn't see any benefits from using it. I was still breaking out often when using this. I had used it before and tried it again but it really doesn't cut it for me.

This is a very long lasting product! You really only need a little bit, I use it on my bamboo reusable makeup wipes and it is very gentle yet effective. I am concerned about some of the ingredients in this product however, like the sodium trideceth sulfate and the yellow dye used
stephglittersongram from undisclosed
The stuff is really amazing it goes arm really well it stays on really well it works really great for my routine I like the packaging the product itself well put together I will buy again and highly recommend others

I am disappointed in the oil free version of Purity. It is thick, sticky, has a minimal fragrance, and doesn't make my skin feel as clean nor "glow" as does the regular Purity.
Stephie from na
absolutely amazing cleanser that's oil free for those of us with lash extensions!!! no more worries of an oil based cleanser destroying your lash investment! also a huge plus that this is meant for oily skin which I definitely have. thoroughly cleans and gets rid of dirt oil and makeup, and I have noticed my skin is less oily. this is the best oil free cleanser I have found if you have eyelash extensions.
oneidag from undisclosed
Absolutely Love the feeling that it leaves up in your face after you use it. It's my go to facial cleanser to remove make up and her without harming your skin.
kristianw4 from undisclosed
Best face wash I ever used. I have used this particular face wash for over five years and constantly restock on it. It does everything you need it to do and isn't harsh on your skin.
