Most Helpful Positive

Great for congested skin

Roannah

I use this morning and night with my foreo and love it. It's not harsh on skin, yet it's effective enough that you feel like your skin is properly cleaned.
Smell is peppermint-y which is nice and fresh.

Mixed feelings about this

Jo

I loved the product when I first purchased it however it can make my skin feel dry after use. It lathers well and only requires a small amount of product to cover the face and neck. It's a decent product but I'm not sure I would buy it again.
  1. Love this product but use as needed

    Nicola

    I do love this product for controlling my break outs, however I have found that I only need to cleanse with it at night, as cleansing with it twice a day was too stripping for my skin.
  2. Great for congested skin

  3. Great multi tasker

    Brett

    This cleanser helped dramatically reduce my redness and breakouts. It is gentle for my sensitive skin but it still feels so refreshing! A must for any skin type. I also love that you can use it as a mask!
  4. Best Cleanser

    HZE

    This is by far the best cleanser I have used for my adult acne prone skin. It feels soo nice on my face. It doesn't strip the skin but yet gives me a really deep cleanse. I have wasted soo much money on expensive cleansers, but this cleanser is a really good investment. I have been using this for over a year now and I will not use anything else!!! Tip: don't damp ur face too much while cleansing w...

  5. Love!

    Sammy

    I’ve gradually been adding new Cosmedix products to my skin care routine and love this cleanser. It gets all make up off. I love using the oil cleanser and follow with this for days that I’m wearing make up, love it. It also doubles as a face mask if you leave it on dry clean skin, which I really loved!
  6. Unbeatable cleanser for combination/oily skin!

    ALS

    I'm 29 and had cystic acne in my teens, and was dragged around to every dermatologist in my small town (there were 2) to have it treated. Everything from Phisohex to being marked for Roaccutane. Now nearing 30, I'm much more in control of my changing skin which after having a good skincare routine has changed my complexion from oily to normal-oily, with only a few acne scars. The Purity Cleanser f...

  7. Love it

    Hayley

    My absolute favourite cleanser. Excellent exfoliating cleanser that doesn’t leave the skin dry.
  8. Great non -drying cleanser for those with combination skin

    Eloise

    I've got combination skin and am beginning to deal with the first signs of ageing, and this product works really well for those skin concerns. I find it doesn't dry out my skin despite containing active ingredients which assist with any little breakouts. I use this cleanser in the evenings after I've used the Cosmedix oil cleanser.
  9. Hands down BEST ever cleanser for oily/acne prone skin

    Charlotte

    I naturally have oily skin type, and am very acne prone with sensitivity. This was recommended by a friend who is a dermal therapist. It improved my skin SO much, minimised amount of breakouts and texture within about 1-2 months of using. I have pretty sensitive skin too, and this didn't cause any tingling or burning that products so often do which is amazing. I feel like it is the best cleanser I...

  10. Can’t go without

    Karen

    I got recommended this cleanser as part of my regime given to me by the girls at Melanie Grant. I love the peppermint smell, the texture and how clean it leaves my skin feeling. I also like to leave it on as a mask for extra exfoliation. I use it every night and can’t go without it. Highly recommend.
  11. Get rid of zits with this great cleanser

    Joy

    I use this on alternate nights as my second cleanse to keep zits and blackheads at bay. If I get congestion on my nose or a spot, I concentrate on that area and leave it on for a bit longer. But it’s a bit drying so don’t overdo it on dryer areas if your face eg cheeks and neck.
  12. Excellent effective cleanser

    Ro

    I have combination/oily skin, and use this in the evening as a 2nd cleanse after a cleansing oil to remove my makeup.
    My skin loves it, feels and looks clean without being tight or dry, and I swear it has helped with my visible pores on my nose. I love it so much I've bought my boyfriend one and insisted he use it.
  13. Love It

    Gemma

    After having used this cleanser once or twice daily for a week I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin. Not only does my skin feel completely clean, but the texture of my skin has improved drastically. As someone who has used more abrasive exfoliants in the past, I was hesitant as to whether something so gentle would work, but I have been pleasantly surprised. I will be keeping this cleanser ...

  14. Go-To cleansers for Minty Freshness

    Emi

    I have used this cleanser on and off for many years. I particularly like it during the summer, and in winter I could recommend only using this at night-time rather than AM+PM if your skin is quite sensitive/dry.

    I use this after the cosmedix purity oil cleanser.
  15. Perfect Cleanser

    Lauren:-)

    This cleanser helped dramatically reduce my redness and breakouts. It is gentle for my sensitive skin but it still feels so refreshing! A must for any skin type.
  16. Perfect For A Deep Cleanse

    Caitlin (Adore Beauty Staff)

    I use this product as my second cleanser at night time to really clean my skin deeply and remove any excess or leftover dirt and makeup that my first cleanser has missed. It smells nice, a tiny bit really goes a long way so a bottle lasts me forever and it doesn't leave my dry skin feeling stripped. Leaves my skin feeling super soft.
  17. Holy Grail!

    PRB

    I have very sensitive skin and I'm prone to hormonal break outs, this is the only cleanser I have used that has not irritated my skin but managed my breakouts and oil control at the same time!
  18. Gets rid of oil and left over makeup residue effectively without stripping off the skin

    paris

    By far this is probably the most effective yet gentle facial cleanser that I have used. I am almost finished with my 10th bottle and honestly can't switch to any other cleanser without going through major breakouts and irritation.
    It's a little pricey but worth every cent.
  19. super good

    sally

    Removes make up extremely well, I was quite impressed! Another great product from the line.
  20. Love the smell

    Roisycheeks

    I love this cleanser. It is a little expensive, but I love the peppermint smell and it works great. One bottle lasts a long time too.
  21. Gentle but so effective

    Erin

    I love this cleanser because it feels fresh while also gently exfoliating. I notice when I haven't been using it regularly as my skin feels dull.
  22. The best cleanser on the market

    Linda

    I've been using this cleanser for years. It is by far the best cleanser on the market. I double cleanse, oil then this cleanser. It removes all make up really well, thoroughly cleanses the skin but does not dry it out. It is a non abrasive exfoliating cleanser that can be used twice a day without drying your skin out. Highly recommend!!

    Lachlan

    Great brand and really wonderful product. I love it and use it all the time!
  25. Cleans all traces of make up off!

    Mel

    Love this cleanser, it has a nice tingle to it, almost a pepermint scent to it. love it, foams up beautifully and doubles as a mask! run on skin and leave for 5-10 minutes and then wash off for a deeper cleam!
  26. Soft skin

    Grace

    I have been using this for a week now and definitely seen an improvement in my skin. My skin is much softer and my breakouts have cleared.
  27. It’s great!

    Lachlan

    Great cleanser and gets all the days dirt and oil off my skin. I really really love it!
  28. No improvement in skin condition

    Laura

    I purchased this after seeing Victoria Beckham posting pics of her daily skincare routine on Instagram which included this product. I have combination skin with hormonal acne and ongoing congestion around the chin and jawline. I used this morning and night after cleansing for 2 months and was disappointed that I saw no improvement in the congestion and blackheads. It has a fresh minty scent which ...

  29. Cosmedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser

    Zhaowei

    It strips the gunk and residue off of your face from the day but doesn’t dry out your skin whilst doing it. It is very hydrating actually and the consistency makes you feel like your squeaky clean.
  30. Nice but expensive

    Emma

    I like this it feels extremely cleansing but can be drying if used too often. I wish it wasn’t so expensive
  31. Will make you love Lactic Acid again.

    Kimera

    I've previously had harsh and drying effects from using other Lactic Acid cleansers, However, this is the real deal, it's gentle on my very dry and often reactive skin, yet still active enough that I notice results with prolonged usage.

    I would suggest if your skin is dry or sensitive, that do the two-step process: using the Cosmedix Purity Solution Deep Cleansing Oil, then this. The...

  32. Worth the investment

    Great product! Helps with congestion
    I like to put the cleanser on my dry skin for a couple of minutes like a mask and then wet my hands to start washing my face for an extra tingles exfoliation
  33. good product

    Nicole

    This is a very gentle exfoliating cleanser. it leaves the skin fresh and thoroughly cleaned. It has a a peppermint smell and has a cooling effect on the skin.
  34. Great for oily/acne prone skin

    Jessie

    This cleanser leaves skin feeling super fresh and clean. It lasts a really long time, so I think its worth the price. I've loved using it, but I'm still having a trouble with my skin, so I don't want to label it as a miracle product. However I would buy again to use as a simple every day cleanse
  35. Awesome

    Lara

    gets to clean the skin from my excess oil but i dont see the exfoliant aspect of it, makes my skin feel super soft though, highly recommend
  36. Holy grail of cleansers

    Rebekah

    I have very sensitive skin and I'm prone to hormonal break outs, this is the only cleanser I have used that has not irritated my skin but managed my breakouts and oil control at the same time!

    I made the switch 2 years ago and won't change now :)
  37. Excellent and effective cleanser

    Hannah

    This gentle exfoliating cleanser leaves the skin fresh and thoroughly cleaned. It has a a peppermint aroma and has a cooling effect on the skin.
  38. excellent

    Laura

    This is such a good face wash!!! it makes my skin feel so clean and soft, it definitely gets all the dirt out and even helps clear my acne I love this so much
  39. Great cleanser for breakouts.

    Becks

    I tend to only use this only once a day, in the evenings before my heavier serums etc. It’s significantly reduced my breakouts/congestion and a little goes a long way, which I think makes the price more reasonable. I can smell the peppermint and tea tree in this and something else that’s quite metallic and not so nice, but it’s not off putting enough to stop me purchasing again.
  40. Really good!

    Isabella

    Nice and refreshing. Makes my skin feel clean without making it dry!
  41. great product

    Raha

    i am absolutely obsessed with this range!I have pretty oily skin that can be sensitive at times. Would definitely recommend to anyone with a similar skin type! Cleans my face super well without leaving it feeling tight.
  42. Game Changer

    Natalie

    After trying all the top brand cleansers, I have finally found the one! Only 1 pump needed and leaves my skin feeling fresh, my pores happy, and my complexion bright. I've stopped wearing makeup to work because my skin is now so smooth and clear.
  43. Love it

    Karen

    I have been using this cleanser for years now and occasionally I’ll try something different but I always comeback to this one, gets your skin really clean, love it!
  44. The best cleanser

    Dee

    This really is the best cleanser. Use with a Clarisonic to really boost results. Also recently read this is Victoria Beckham’s favourite!
  45. Brilliant Deep Clean

    HeidiS

    One of my favourite cleansers. I am over 40 yet still do have skin prone to congestion and breakouts yet also concerned with ageing. This cleanser removes makeup, excess oils and seems to clean much deeper than any I have tried yet leaves skin feeling lovely not stripped bare yet still super fresh and clean! I think this is great for anyone that wants tighter pores, more glow, smoother and definit...

    Di

    This was recommended to me by my facialist. I have acne prone skin and ever since using this cleanser it has kept my pimples at bay. My skin doesn't feel stripped of its natural oils after using it and it has a lovely peppermint scent. It hasn't improved my blackhead situation however I don't think anything will. I only use it once a day to avoid causing any sensitivities. This is my 3rd bottle no...

    This cleanser literally changed my life. I was constantly getting huge, angry, cystic acne around my chin, and all I wanted to do was squeeze & pick to try and get rid of it. I was so self conscious about it, and wouldn't want to leave the house. I knew that squeezing & picking made it worse, but it was a relief to get rid of those ugly white heads.

  53. My favourite cleanser so far

    Kimberley

    I have normal to oily skin, depending on the time of the year and find this great as my PM cleanser at the end of the day, and it manage my hormonal acne at that time of the month. It also works well as a superficial peel if you leave it on for 10 minutes or as a spot treatment due to the concentration of lactic acid. Highly recommend this product if it’s within your budget.
  54. Great night cleanser

    Larissa

    I was recommended this product by my facials to use nightly as a second cleanse as part of a double cleanse routine. So far I have found it to be fantastic. It leaves a thoroughly clean feeling and the peppermint smell is great. I personally think it would be too much to use twice a day, but it has been perfect for a nightly cleanse before serums/moisturising.
  55. Buy it now!

    Lauren

    This is the best cleanser I have ever used! It cleans your skin better then anything I have used before. It has not only cleared a lot of my blackheads but has reduced the redness in my trouble areas. This cleanser will save your skin!
  56. Bright beautiful skin

    Ella

    I have switched back to this product after using a couple of other cleansers (this was recommended to me a year ago after having clean + brilliant laser treatment on my face) and my skin was noticeably smoother, brighter and balanced within one day of using it. I will be using this for a long time to come! Highly recommend
  57. Its good

    Abbey

    Skin type: Oily/combination

    I really enjoyed this face wash, its cleared up my skin and I will continue to use.
  58. Best face wash

    Hanna

    Been using this product the last four years. Good for deep cleaning and get rid of makeup
  59. Pretty Good

    M

    A great cleanser that seems to strip away dead skin cells, and leave a nice bright complexion. You do have to be careful to not overdo it with exfoliation though
  60. A must have cleanser - good for dry skin that still needs exfoliation

    Erin

    I have sandpaper dry skin and this cleanser keeps me hydrated while also exfoliating. I notice a difference in my skin texture when I don't use it. It's gentle enough exfoliation for dry skin but really works well to remove dead skin and build up. Would 100% recommend.
  61. Go to cleanser

    Chloe

    I love this cleanser and I consider myself to be a skin care snob. The active ingredients are just right not too overpowering but not under active either. The peppermint scent is delicious I will Definitely will purchase again!
  62. Be careful not to overuse

    Gemma

    First impression of this product is that it leaves your face feeling lovely and fresh and you feel like it’s really getting into the troubled areas for a deep clean. Only problem is I was told to use it twice daily which I think is just too much! It really dried my skin out and in turn I started to get big blind pimples that just couldn’t penetrate the skins surface. I now just use it every second...

  65. Best cleaners I’ve used

    Penelope

    I love this cleaner! I have problematic skin and this cleanser was recommended to me and it worked so well without drying out my skin. It is a little too expensive but if you are desperate to clear up your skin, this will work. If it was slightly cheaper I would absolutely recommend it to everyone.
  66. Not worth the price tag unfortunately.

    Michelle

    I tried this cleanser and it worked well enough, but didn't really make a lot of difference to my skin compared to cheaper cleansers. The minty smell and fresh feeling was nice, but overall not really worth the price tag.
  67. Really good, highly recommended!

    A.S.

    I have used gentle cleansers for a long time and always felt there was something missing. Using this has solved that issue its a really good, thorough, high-quality cleanser and does not overdry the skin

    I love this cleanser and don't think I could ever get sick of using it. It's designed for combination/oily skin and gives a really deep cleanse but it is definitely not stripping. It's a gel formula which foams only slightly, and it feels really high quality on the skin. If you've used cheap cleansers compared to high-end cleansers you'll know what I mean by that.
