bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser


RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $20 for 6 ounces

THE SKINNY: The sales girls usually don't get to me. But I had been struggling to find a cleanser that worked well on my sensitive skin. And $20 later, I am trying out bareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser.

It was $20 well spent.

The super-liquidy formula only takes one, yes one, pump to clean your whole face. (So this 6 ounce bottle will last a while.) And it goes on so smooth. The cleanser almost feels like a lotion. And my face feels smoother four hours after cleaning.

And it does the trick with makeup removal as well. It removes everything and does not burn if you get a little too close to your eyes.

The only downside is that for the first week or two I did notice my skin was drier after the switch from an Aveeno foam cleanser. But after my skin figured it out, it has looked better and felt much smoother.

KEEP OR TOSS: This is a keeper for sure. Let's just hope the company does not change the formula any time soon.

CHECK IT OUT: It also gets great reviews on the Bare Escentuals website.
