Review: No7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Cleanser

Site Says:
Ever so fresh. Refresh your skin as you sweep away every last trace of make-up and cleanser. This purifying toner helps skin look and feel beautifully healthy and clean. Non-drying and pH balanced, it helps to leave combination complexions rebalanced, revitalized and shine free. Zinc and seaweed extract help control and balance excess oil while vitamins A and E moisturize where needed.
Created with Care. We've created this hypo-allergenic product using only ingredients we know and trust. It has been tried and tested by guests with even the most sensitive skin, so you'll know it will be good to yours. Dermatologically tested. Fragrance free.

How to use:
Apply a small amount to a cotton pad and sweep over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Use quick upward strokes

I paid about 9.00 USD for this product at my local Target.
For the price You get a lot of product. 200ml. !! That's 6.6 US fl.oz

Ive heard a lot of mixed reviews on the product. Some people hate and and some love it! I am going to say I'm on the side of absolutely loving it! I love the product for the following reasons...

I'm a sucker for packaging. It's in a sleek easy to understand bottle. It is        
a shade of light green that has a pearl like sheen to it. All the information you could possibly want to know is stated clearly and willingly on the bottle.

Texture & Application: 
It is a gel like substance that has a pearl like finish as well. It does not hurt while applying & it smooths out upon my face fairly easily. I find it nice that it is a light sort of gel, it does not feel thick or heavy on the skin. It is not sticky or oily, it sinks into my skin like butter really. I have very oily skin so I have to watch out for the products I use, this maintains a matte face throughout my day and does not cause buildup makeup if I wear it over the product. After applying it leaves a cool refreshing sort of feeling on my face just as if I wet my face with cold water. Your skin just feels very clean and perfectly balanced.

Makeup & Dirt Removal:
oki so a lot of people learned to hate the product at just this point.
Ive never used it just on it's own. As you all know I'm a skincare junkie and I don't just use 1 product at night to remove the layer of makeup. I wash my face first than apply product and creams :) After washing my face I use the Cleanser and wiped away with a cotton ball. It removed any other build up left on my face. I didn't see any sort of problem with it. It did not cause irritation or breakouts on my skin and it did not burn in any sort of way.

I plan on going to buy a few more backup bottles. I know that this gets sold out easily at the stores around me so no reason to be  without it when it's gone. hope this was helpful.


  1. It's always great to have backups of the products we love!:D
