                    I am currently on Accutane and use this every morning when I wake up. It's great and doesn't irritate my dry sensitive skin, but I always feel clean and refreshed. I can't speak to how well it removes make up because I do only use it in the morning and have a different cleanser I use at night. Also, the smell is AMAZING.

                      • 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.
