bomb !...My Fave...COMBINATION/SENSITIVE/ACNE PRONE SKIN...Pros: I have very sensitive skin which becomes easily reddened by many products--doesn't happen with purity, great smell, skin feels very soft afterwards, non-irritating Cons: doesn't exfoliate ( a con because dead skin cells can build up and clog pores), doesn't seem to help with blackheads, wouldn't recommend for acne Overall, I feel like it is a better morning cleanser since I prefer something a little stronger for night time before I use my AHA/BHA products.

best !...My fav...It didn't irritate or cause breakouts....It also seems to remove makeup well, so that's good... Basically, if you're looking for a cleanser that's relatively inexpensive, cleans well, and doesn't kill your sensitive skin, I would give this a try... but I would try and remove at least your eye makeup before using it, it does a poor job of breaking down mascara.

Top 5%...It's ok...And as a bonus it helps keep my breakouts to a minimum, I won't say it keeps my face 100% clear as I am prone to stress related acne but I can tell a difference when I use this product....My only complaints are that it's a little pricey (while a little goes a long way, and one bottle lasts me approximately half a year, $26 is still a lot to pay for face wash) and that while the packaging is nice, it'sn't recyclable... which sort of defeats the purpose of buying a more eco-friendly beauty product.
