    Have used this product for over ten years. It cleans my skin without making it feel dried out or "tight" when dry. Also works well as a shave gel.

      Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleansing Gel:

      I have never found a cleanser that worked as well as this one. Usually after using a cleanser for 3 months, I will have to switch cleansers because I will start to break out. But I have never had this problem with this cleanser. I have been using it 2x a day for 4 years!

                Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleansing Gel:

                I love this product and have been using it for a long time. A tube will last you for a very long time. It leaves your face clean but not streaky clean. (not overclean). It doesn't strip your face of all its natural oils. Leaves it just perfect.

                Service and delivery comments:

                The employees inside the store were rude and did not care about my needs. I am handicapped and when I asked if the product was far, the lady said, "just follow me". Then she pointed at the Philosophy area and walked right past it and left me there. I accidentally grabbed the sample tube. The top was broken and I had to walk all the way back and get a new one. These people are uncaring and I will never go back in the store again. I will order directly from Philosophy next time.

                    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleansing Gel:

                    I have extremely oily skin and was so excited to try this to help control my oil and take my makeup off. It may just be my skin, but I have NEVER broken out this bad from facewash. I have painful, red whiteheads all over my chin area after using this wash for over a month. I'm always looking for something to help control my oily skin and this seemed perfect. However, this face wash dried my INTENSELY oily skin out completely. My skin is flaking on my forehead and nose area. My skin has never been dry in my life and it is painful how dry it is now. I was hoping that it would get better after using it for a while and didn't want to get rid of it just yet, but I am heading back to Ulta to return this. Definitely not worth it.

                      A little of this goes a very long way. I have used it with hands only, washcloth, and with Clarisonic and no matter how you use it, it works great. My fave is with the Clarisonic. It lathers well and rinses clean. Takes off any and all products I have tried. Even better than the original.

                      I absolutely love this cleanser. It's a one stop cleanser. I can take off a fully beat face all with this one cleaner and have no raccoon eyes. Once I'm done cleaning my face with this I feel fresh and have no traces of make up left anywhere.
