      Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

      I've never had a negative reaction to any face wash or moisturizer and was shocked when this immediately made my face bright red and itchy for days, even after I stopped using it. I would be wary recommending this to anyone with "normal" skin like me, and would never recommend it to someone with sensitive skin.

              This does not clean my face well and certainly doesn't "melt off the makeup." It also has a "chemical" smell. My face does not look or feel better after using this product.

                      My skin has always been super oily but recently it changed to super dry, with itchy feeling and what seemed like pimples but they itched ... I was recommended this product by an ultra rep along with the cream and I've never stopped using it my skin is now normal, not oily but normal. Amazing product

                                We don't recommend using any moisturizer on the eyelid. The eyelid produces it's on oils that may cause the moisturizer to irritate the eye. However, the Take a Deep Breath is a great facial moisturizer. It keeps the face refreshed and hydrated.
