Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar Review





One word: perfection. At least for my skin. This is how I can describe Purpose gentle cleansing bar from Johnson & Johnson in my honest experience. This is particularly amazing for the face when I don't have my PCA Skincare cleanser handy.  It is hypo-allergenic and oil-free, and won't clog pores.  To be honest, though (please don't laugh), I use Purpose cleansing bar to wash my underarms. Even under the scorching heat of the desert sun, I gotta say that this never made my underarms sweaty (or even smell like they are) at all.

I perspire a lot especially during the summer and when I work out. I wasn't pleased with my beauty bar soaps or body washes because they leave this scent on my underarms that didn't seem to go well with my body chemistry. Let's admit it - we want something that will make us smell fresh and keep us smelling fresh throughout the day.

I only found that freshness with Purpose.  Even when I use other soaps or body washes on my body, I always wash my underarms with Purpose.  It leaves a clean, fresh scent that doesn't clash with my anti-perspirant or body chemistry. It significantly reduced sweat on my underarms and even when I perspire all over after a workout, my underarms don't smell bad at all.

I honestly suggest that you try Purpose if you want a soap that will really help curb that embarrassing sweaty smell, especially during summer or when you work out or play sports. This soap has become my lifesaver, and I will be buying this soap forever. This is definitely holy grail material for me.

I'm very picky about using soaps, because I am a bit of a germaphobe...but I love the Purpose oil-free gel cleanser...it is amaaaaazing. It has transformed my acne-prone skin into, well, perfection. I only get acne around "that time" and it has faded my acne scars as well...I will NEVER be w/o this cleanser.
