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

      My first Philosophy product was a great experience! I love how fresh and clean it smells. Its formula is very gentle and mild- I don't find it to be overly drying after I use it. Sometimes the problem with some face washes is they don't leave your face feeling as clean as you'd like, and I have no complaints about this wash. I'd totally recommend this to anyone!! A little side note: I bought this when Ulta was doing an online promotion, so I got a free Philosophy Ulitmate Miracle Worker cream. I was excited until I realized the sample had expired in 2016. :(

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

        This is one of my favorite facial cleansers! I even got my mom using it now. It does an excellent job removing makeup (I always use a different make up remover first, but this actually cleans the residual makeup left behind.) My skin feels soft, moisturized but not greasy. My pores are clean too! It's important to follow the directions and massage a good amount onto wet skin for 30-60 seconds. I think 60 seconds works best. I definitely recommend.

            I always go back to this cleanser. I tried to buy when it's on sale even though it is worth it in my eyes. I have normal to dry so it never strips it. It being a non-foaming cleanser is a plus.

              Gentle to a fault, for the price I expected to feel very clean and it felt like the face wash did almost nothing. I've heard a lot of good things about this but it just wasn't for me. My very oily skin needed something a little more tough on oils.

                        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.
