If you’re plagued with oily skin you’ve no doubt tried many facial cleansers over the years. From my experience most cleansers for oily skin fall into one of two categories, cleansers that do not wash all the oil away, and cleansers that completely strip all of the moisture from my skin. I’ve had the Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Skincare Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser in my beauty cabinet for a few weeks. And since my beauty product collection has grown considerably it was now or never to give it a test drive.
This Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser is a bit different from other cleansers, it’s a water-activated powder. To activate the cleanser simply pour a small amount into wet hands and rub together to produce a light lather.
This particular cleanser is part of the RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex line that is 100% pure. These “active” minerals help with cell renewal and provide antioxidant protection for maximum skin renewing benefits.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this cleanser cleaned my skin, there was no irritation and my skin somehow managed to feel squeaky clean without feeling dried out. It took a few washes to get used to mixing my own cleanser but it’s very effective at removing makeup while leaving skin exfoliated and refreshed. As someone with sensitive skin redness is always a concern when trying new products and I did not experience any irritation at all. This cleanser provided excellent exfoliation without the use of harsh abrasive substances or harsh chemicals. The key exfoliating ingredient in this product is the RareMineral ActiveSoil Complex which has been shown to improve texture and make pores less noticeable. Overall I was extremely impressed with the results, this is a holy grail item for sure!
