"This is great for oily and sensitive skin. It treats the pores to a deep clean without stripping the skin or causing irritation."
Marie Claire
"...this purifying formula, deep-cleans pores while maintaining hydration and suppleness. It also calms my redness and has significantly brightened my complexion over time."


  • Purifying Face Wash by Renée Rouleau is a soap-free, low-foaming cleansing face wash for oily skin to deep clean the pores without leaving the skin feeling tight, dry or irritated like bar soaps and many foaming cleansers will do. Leaves the sensitive, breakout-prone skin feeling calm and comfortable by maintaining the skin's protective moisture barrier. The result? Calm, clean and refreshed skin.

    Size: 6 fl oz
