La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser
This is a moisturizing cleanser that does not leave your skin feeling dry after use. I find that it doesn't always remove my makeup, so I remove it first, then cleanse. I can't stand the dry/taut feeling that some cleansers give, but this is very gentle and I've had zero irritation since using it. I have normal to oily skin, so I was concerned at first that the creamy consistency would cause breakouts, but I haven't any issues with that at all. This is now my daily cleanser and I love it. If it also took off my makeup more effectively, I would have given it 5 stars, but I don't mind removing my makeup first anyway. I would confidently recommend this product to anyone.
Gentle, Not Ultra-Gentle
My skin is super sensitive. In the past 15 years or so I have only found one face cleanser that has worked for my skin type. I was in the mood to try something different so I purchased La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser. It feels wonderful and I do not have an immediate bad reaction to the product. However, after a month of using it I noticed my skin is redder than usual and slightly irritated and hot feeling.
I unfortunately cannot continue to use La Prairie. I would assume that this product works wonderfully for those who do not have super, super sensitive skin. Reason being-it felt great being applied and didn't have an immediate negative effect on my skin. However, I cannot agree that this product is ultra-gentle. Gentle yes. I would still recommend to friends after discussing their skin type.
Those of you with sensitive skin and/or rosacea will understand.
If you want smooth skin and a youthful face this is the product to use. I've been using this product for over 20yrs.
This is a very mild and gentle cleanser! I have been using it for 4 years and I repurchased it all the time.. It is great for winter and even summer as I would say that my skin is dry and it did not pull my face after I used it. Good for removing make up too.. I love using this cleanser and the La mer cleanser too but this is a little better! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who have dry skin or for winter usage!
