Just a Friendly Way to Wash Your Face: Johnson & Johnson Purpose Soap Review
Soap, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Muse on a never ending mission to explore new and exciting ways to cleanse her face and boldly go where no woman has gone before….
That’d be by washing my face with a big old bar of soap.
I’ve been watching WAY too many Star Trek Generations reruns on BBC America. I swear I can play a part in Generations, I know like every line, plus I realized my Wesley Crusher lust is still as strong as evers.
Yeah well you probably won’t take to washing up with soap anytime soon but honestly, on occasion, when you’re feel a little lazy, soap is ok particularly soap that’s MEANT for your face.
What is it?
A big old bar of soap to cleanse your face with!
Purpose Soap is an oil-free, hypoallergenic beauty bar that won’t clog pores. It produces a mild lather to remove dirt, oil, etc…without drying out skin or clogging pores. Not alot going on here really…its simply bar of soap for cleaning your face so if you’re the lazy type that wants a quick clean this is ideal for those days you simply aren’t up for using 10 products to get all your makeup off. Mind you, it’s not going to remove waterproof mascara but it does do a fab job scrubbing your face free of foundation, blush, etc…and doing so with a very sensitive formula that won’t dry your skin out but still manages to get you super squeaky clean.
On occasion I’m lazy as hell so honestly reaching for a little soap and water isn’t such a bad idea which is why I LOVE the Clarins Beauty Bar however if that’s a little above your budget you can spend a simple 2 bucks on a bar of Purpose and it’ll pretty much perform just as well plus it’s easier to travel with. Slap that bad boy in a little plastic soap carrier and you’re good to motor.
Not much bad about it, it lathers up and you’re good to go.
Who might like it?
- Anyone who wants a no nonsense way to clean up!
- Anyone who doesn’t wear a ton of makeup.
- Chicklets with sensitive skin and in need of a gentle cleanser.
- Those of us feeling a little lazy at the end of the night and wanting a quickie clean up.
Who might not like it?
- Anal types who embrace a long term cleansing routine they don’t veer from even when they are feeling lazy.
I don’t embrace or recommend cleansing your face with facial soap daily as I do think your skin deserves a good cleansing routine that doesn’t involve one step. However, for days you’re just off your game and feeling a little lazy or just got home later after a long day at work and want a quickie way to clean up….facial soap is a great solution! Particularly one that sets you back a buck or two.
Anyone use facial soap?
