Gentle Cleansing Wash is distinctly preferred to Purpose's Gentle Cleansing Bar, and remains a gentle, effective water-soluble cleanser for all skin types except very dry. For the record, this cleanser is identical to Clean & Clear’s Foaming Facial Cleanser, Sensitive Skin (which costs less yet you get a larger size). Both companies are owned by Johnson & Johnson.
This foaming cleanser is 100% soap-free, so it removes dirt, oil and make-up without stripping or drying like soap can. And it won't sting your eyes, so it's ideal for removing eye make-up.

Johnson & Johnson–owned Purpose is a very small line of products that make a big deal out of their gentleness and suitability for sensitive skin. We have a lot of respect for many J&J products, particularly in their Neutrogena and Aveeno lines; however, Purpose is best summed up by a purposeful "don't bother." There is only one great product in this line, and it can also be found (for less money) in the Clean & Clear line (and that line also offers a fragrance-free version of the cleanser). The remaining products are absolutely not "gentle enough for all skin types, even sensitive skin." That's because none of them contain ingredients that are what sensitive skin needs to look and feel better. The bar soap is drying and the fragrance irritating, while the daytime moisturizers contain potentially sensitizing ingredients, including active sunscreen agents that no research anywhere has proven capable of reducing facial redness.
