    This product completely removed makeup without drying out my skin. My skin feels soft and not dry or tight. Nice scent. I have tried many other lines and I keep returning back to Excuvience. I'm staying for good!

          Comments about Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel:

          Unfortunately the detailed instructions on the back say that it contains ingredients that increase your risk of sunburn when in the sun. I am not familiar with all ingredients that do that, so I definitely would appreciate the warning/precaution on the "Details" section of this product (@Ulta!!!) While I wear SPF every day, I definitely don't hide from the sun. Don't recommend for people in the same boat.. especially as summer is approaching. This is an FYI post.... don't pay attention to the rating because i never used it after reading the precaution!

            Best face product I've used

            By Fuzzy

            from Washington

            Comments about Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel:

            I've used many products since my teen years into my adult life and nothing has been as amazing as this cleansing gel. It cleans thoroughly without leaving my face feeling stripped dry. One of my favorite things about it is that it doesn't leave my skin with that gross film where if you run your finger down your face it drags, this leaves it smooth and clean.

                I have really bad acne,congested pores. should I use the Purifying cleanser or the clarifying cleanser

                  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.

                  Exuviance Purifying Cleansing is formulated with less than 1% Glycolic Acid along with Polyhydroxy Acids to soothe and improve skin texture.

              • 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.

                I have really dry skin, but, also have problematic skin (clogged pores, cystic acne with occasional whitehead). Would this Purifying Cleansing Gel work for me withOUT over drying my skin? If so, any suggestions?

                  Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel works to gently wash away makeup, surface oils and impurities without altering skin's natural moisture balance. It's non-drying and gentle to skin.

                  Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel is formulated for those with normal or combination skin types. For those with a more sensitive complexion, we recommend Exuviance Gentle Cleanse Creme.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
