This is such a wonderful day-to-day soap. I've been suffering from moderate acne since I was a teenager, and after 7 years it's gone away thanks to purpose. I massage this onto my face for 60 seconds every morning in the shower and I have soft, smooth, clean skin. Never over dries.
However, you may want to buy something with more exfoliating power to use every once in a while since Purpose doesn't go beyond the first layer of skin. It's amazing at removing oil but not over drying. It also removes most of the dead skin and blackheads/whiteheads. However, if you still have dead skin and whiteheads/blackheads use supplement your daily Purpose routine with something that has more exfoliating power, such as a Philosophy cleanser or other high-end cleanser. It's okay to spend big on a exfoliating cleanser because the cheap ones will rip your skin off or be irritating.
This bar lasts me 3 months of daily use, since you use so little of it each time to get a great lather. Highly, highly recommended. Just try it, it's so cheap and simple!! Remember, once a day for 60 seconds.

It works good on clearing up blemishes but it also dries out your skin. Seeing how i already have dry skin i've had the problem of peeling skin lately. I probably wouldnt buy this again. I think this would work well for someone with oily skin, but if you have dry sensitive skin like me i would look into something eles.

    Comments about Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, 6 oz:

    I have always LOVED this product. After years of paying [$] for this, I discovered normal Baby Wash has the exact same ingredients in the exact same order for a fraction of the cost (usually around $2) Sorry Purpose, just a tip for all you users out there. Wonderful product tho.

    Comments about Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, 6 oz:

    I had severe acne for many years, and this is what completely cleared it up. All I do is wash my face gently with this soap in the shower every night and put the Purpose dual treatment lotion on afterwards while my skin is still slightly damp. My skin looks awesome now. It used to be so terrible, and I wasted a lot of money on acne washes that only irritated my skin and made my acne worse. Sometimes acne is caused by using harsh products, so if the acne washes aren't working for you, try just using Purpose soap and lotion and nothing else to see if the worsening or cause of your acne is the acne products themselves. Wish someone would have given me this advice when I had problems!

    Comments about Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, 6 oz:

    This soap was recommended by my dermatologist many, many years ago because I had a break-out problem. I've been using it FOREVER---every morning and every night to wash off makeup.
    It is a bit drying so I follow-up with Kiehl's foaming cleanser.
    Now my daughter uses it (followed by Kiehl's cleanser) and has helped clear up minor breakouts.

        Comments about Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, 6 oz:

        Recommended to me by my dermatologist when I was a teenager (acne). I'm now almost 40 & still using it. I periodically try other spa / high-end products -- some of which I have liked ok. But, I keep coming back to this as it works well & lasts forever (so it's essentially dirt-cheap -- why pay more if it doesn't do more?). I usually cut the big bar in half to make 2. My skin always feel nice & clean afterwards. My skin is oily/combination.

                I have very sensitive skin. My Dr. recommended this years ago and it never irritates my skin. I have tried othere brands that are supposed to be gentle and non-allergenic, but they still irritate. This soap is definitely worth the money.
