Two weeks ago, I went to my local drugstore and bought a new cleanser, cream and toner. I wanted to get a cheaper alternative for my skincare regimen.

After 2 days of using all these products, I started to develop red bumps on my face. I was thinking that this should be normal since my skin is getting used to the products and will eventually subside. I guess I was wrong. :( 10 days later, a lot more came out. So I was thinking it was either the toner or cream that's causing this. I ruled out Purpose because it's such a gentle wash. I stopped using the cream and toner and decided to finish my old cleanser (philosophy purity) and since it was too late for me to go out and buy a night cream, I was lucky enough I've gotten the philosophy take a deep breath sample from myglam. That night, I washed my face with my old cleanser, used my juju aloe toner and tried out the sample cream. Voila! The next day, the red bumps were half gone! I was surprised! So I kept using my philosophy cleanser until the bottle was empty. Yes, my face started to clear up and I'm a happy duck again. Last night, I started using the Purpose cleanser again and to my surprise the next day, I had those red bumps again! Oh my! I found the culprit! It was the Purpose Cleanser!!! I was shocked because I've read a lot of great reviews about this product. It's gentle for your skin and it's dermatologist recommended. Also, the price is great! ($4)

I'm sorry that I have to post my nasty cheek (also have the same amount of red bumps on my other cheek). I just wanted to show you guys how bad it is. I've never had a skin reaction in my life like this before. I am devastated!
Today, I went to Sephora to purchase philosophy Purity and also bought the full size of philosophy take a deep breath cream. I am quite scared of trying new skincare products right now after this incident.
Again, this is my opinion. I've had a bad experience with this product. You may have a different opinion with this cleanser. Anyone with a good experience with this facial cleanser then I'm happy that it worked out well for you.
