I will not buy this cleanser again not for me

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

      First of all,
      This cleanser smells horrible pure chemicals. The bottle is super hard plastic so everytime I press it I have to eat a hearty meal to get the product out because it is very hard to squeeze in my opinion of course. Then, when the product gets to the end it gets even harder to get it out. It's just nor for me. It stinks, super hard to squeeze and with the amount of cleansers out there not worth the trouble. I bought Neutrogena facial cleanser and that one even comes with a pump and un scented. I really reallyyyy wanted to like this cleanser but it is just not for me. Thank you can keep it.

          One of the best cleansers out there. I've worked for 3 major cosmetic lines. I have sensitive combination skin. Always thought I needed an eye makeup remover. This product is a work horse and does a great job.
          Simple packaging, great results. Ladies, it's not that pricey if it eliminates an eye makeup remover. Plus I'm going to try it on my brushes another product eliminated. Yes!

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

            I have always had sensitive, acne prone skin. I tried this after reading amazing reviews online. I'm not sure exactly what the hype is all about. It definitely took all of my makeup off with one wash and could clean my brushes. But it didn't clear my skin or do anything miraculous like other reviews claim. Bottom line, this is a good cleanser for removing makeup but it was not a miracle worker for me.

            This is amazing. I've had some skin problems that left me with sensitive skin. Anything that plumps, tightens, or pulls moisture out is a no go. This makes my skin feel soft and clean. It removes some makeup but not all of it. Mainly waterproof.

                  • Q:

                    Why does philosophy use sulfates in this so called 'purity' cleanser when it has been proven to be stripping and drying to the hair let alone delicate skin??
                    Wanted to try this product but when i saw the first few ingredients listed were sulfates.Not so pure i think .and not needed when there are so many alternatives.
