I’ve been a licensed skin care therapist/makeup artist since 2003 and I can’t even begin to tell you how many products I have tried. I wear a full face of makeup fairly regularly and am always looking for the least amount of steps that lead to the best results. This leads me to the Purlisse cleanser that I received in my Ipsy bag this month that has completely replaced my former cleanser. This is huge. Trust me.
They tried to think of a long name for the cleanser, but they just decided to go with this. I’m kidding. It’s 9 words! But seriously – This. Stuff. So good! Despite the fact that it’s a creamy consistency, it works for all skin types, including true sensitive skin. In fact, it’s even great for oily skin because cleansers with sulfates can strip your skin making your skin produce more oil as a defense mechanism. Cruel irony. I know and I’m sorry.
This is a soap free gentle cleanser that will completely remove your makeup. I have put it to the test with long wearing liquid eye liners and waterproof mascara. Wash hands, then apply a nickel sized amount onto your face with your wet hands, gently massage across your face and even onto your eyes! Rinse with a soft cloth (I like to use baby wash cloths), repeat. Skin rinses clean with no residue and no trace of makeup. Soft, clean and healthy skin.
