    I've been using this cleanser for about a week now but I wanted to ask if it should be used day and night. I just saw in the previous questions that this one can also be used as a mask, does that mean it should not be used more than once a day?

    Asked by: Laura BR
    Hi Laura BR, How frequently you cleanse with this product depends on your skin type but we suggested building up frequency if you want to see how often if it best for you. Additionally, if you're seeking a mask we love our Claymates mask duos!

    Is this product recommended for daily use? I have been using the Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam, which I like, but I'm about to run out. Should I give this cleanser a try?

    Can Clay Chameleon be used to remove eye makeup?

    Asked by: Agnes
    Hello Agnes, The Clay Chameleon would be suitable for makeup removable as long as you are emulsifying it in your hands with water before application to your face. We also recommend OIL OBSESSED™ TOTAL CLEANSING OIL as a makeup remover and cleanser.

    Have you replaced "Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and "Purifying Facial Cleanser"? If so, with what?

    What has replaced "Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser" and "Purifying Facial Cleanser"?
    Asked by: jester
    The Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser has been replaced with the Skinsorials Mix, Exfoliate, Smooth. It is very similar to the original treatment cleanser. It is a little more abrasive to smooth out your skin and get rid of dead skin cells. The Purifying Facial Cleanser has been split into two products. One being Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil. Cleansing oils have been very popular throughout 2016, so bareMinerals came out with a revamped version. This is their second oil cleanser they have launched. This oil is purposely used to cleanse your skin of makeup (including waterproof makeup) just like the Purifying Facial Cleanser. The second product to use is the Clay Chameleon Transforming Purifying Cleanser. This product is not used to cleanse skin of makeup. But it does cleanse from impurities in your skin. It is made of red clay. I recommend in using all three products if you are looking for something close to the two you liked before.

    Linalool in cosmeceuticals is bad!

    Why does bare minerals put linalool in their cosmeceuticals? Research since 2004 show it is very damaging to skin, is cytotoxic, and damaging to collagen formation, and an irritant! Why do they not stop doing this? It takes very, very little to cause the damage.
    Asked by: rutbhyc
    I seen your question and did a search for that ingredient. It's actually used in a ton of essential oils and is seen as very beneficial and actually helps calm your skin.
