I was excited to try pur~lisse’s pur~delicate gentle soy milk cleanser because it’s sulfate-free. If you follow me, you know I’m anti-sulfates — especially in my hair, beauty, and body products. Sulfates are really drying to my hair and skin. Its rare to find sulfate-free facial cleansers and body washes. And this one literally arrived at my doorstep. (Thank you Fabfitfun!)
Product claims are that it’s sulfate-free & non-drying. It gently washes away dirt and soothes sensitive skin. It retails for $36.00.
This soy milk cleanser is soap-free. The best way to describe it is as a non-sudsy face wash. If bubbles and foam equate clean, then this is not the facial cleanser for you. Pur~delicate felt like a lotion. I applied a small amount to my wet face, maybe the size of a quarter. It was a very smooth application. At times I wasn’t sure I was getting a thorough cleanse because the product’s consistency was so light and lacked bubbles. But to my surprise, my face was really clean. In following up with witch hazel as a toner, my cotton pad picked up little or no dirt at all.
Although it’s a gentle and sulfate-free cleanser, I still got that tight, dry feeling after each wash. My combination skin also had dry patches. I won’t blame the cleanser though. It’s just time for a good exfoliant. After toning and moisturizing with a little avocado oil, that wasn’t a problem.
All in all, I was happy with this product. It was gentler than other facial cleansers. I think less is more with this one. Only a small amount is needed for a super thorough cleanse. I like the soap-free formula. I don’t need bubbles; I was convinced it was doing its job. And it did a great job.
