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

        I like to think I don't have sensitive skin, more combination without any breakouts but this cleanser dried my skin out horribly. Even using a thick moisturizer didn't help the dry flakes on my face. I definitely don't recommend this or the exfoliating wash.

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

          I decided to try this face wash after Jaclyn Hill bragged on it so much. I tried it and after the first use I was sold! I struggle with redness and kept small bumps all over my face. The redness is so subtle now and the bumps are gone! I love the smell, so light and natural! It's doesnt foam up, which I was iffy about, but I've gotten used to it and it melts my Kat Von D Lock-It foundation right off!! I was very surprised with how much it removes being that it doesn't lather up. Another plus is that it didn't dry my face out after using. Every other face wash I have ever used makes my skin extremely tight immediately after use because they dry me out terribly. I would say I have combination skin. So thankful for this face wash!!

            This is my favorite cleanser! Started with a sample that came with a Clarisonic, and it works great with that or on its own. Since then I've bought nothing else. Removes even stubborn waterproof makeup without an extra step.

            I have always loved this facial cleanser. I've been out of it at times and tried others but always return to Philosophy's Purity. It takes off all traces of makeup but is gentle. It leaves your face fresh but not dry, and with a smooth feel.

                  I'm only giving it a 2 star cuz it did a good job at removing my makeup. I never breakout but this made me breakout like there is no tomorrow. It's named Purity but it has parabens, sulfate, fragrance and full of chemicals.I have oily skin but after cleaning my face with this, my skin felt stripped. I don't recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin. My clear skin is full of acne scars now :(
