Review: PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash and Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion

Over the years, besides being oily and acne-prone my face has become quite sensitive.  My cheek area is prone to redness that will flare up any time a product does not agree with me.  For this reason, I was eager to try PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash and Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion, both for sensitive skin.

PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash ReviewPURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash comes in a handy pump bottle and has a medium consistency, not too thick and not too watery.  It provides a light and airy lather and has a fresh scent.  It is soap-free, hypoallergenic, and oil-free.  I like this cleanser for use about every other day or when my skin has been irritated by something.  Because my skin is also oily, I can’t use this as an every day cleanser.  I feel I need a cleanser with exfoliation/pore clearing most days.  PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash did not make my skin dry or tight.

PURPOSE Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion ReviewPURPOSE Moisture LotionPURPOSE Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion also comes in a nice pump and has a lighter lotion consistency.  It is oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic and includes SPF 15.  I like this moisturizer for my oily skin!  It sinks in quickly and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy.  It is great for my day time moisturizer.

Overall, I am pleased with both PURPOSE products and am happy to add them to my skincare routine now and then.  Gentle Cleansing Wash, 6 oz, $5.99; Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion, 5 fl oz, $9.99, at drugstores and mass retailers.

    I’ve used the Purpose cleanser for years. I like that it takes eye makeup off and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes. I’ve never tried the moisturizer though. It looks nice!
