        Great gentle cleanser, leaves me feeling clean but not dried out. I have combination, acne-prone skin and this is the only cleanser I've tried that keeps my skin clear. A bit pricey, but worth it.

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

          I use this every night to remove my makeup. It's great at removing most of it - foundation, eyeshadow, and lipstick. It's not great at removing waterproof mascara but I can get that out with a little bit of micellar water. A little bit of this goes a very long way. My skin feels clean after each use. I have been using it for a few months now. I get the ocasional pimples but I have seen a decrease in breakouts since using this product. It's become an essential part of my routine. If you buy in bulk, make sure to have a smaller bottle to put it in. The larger bottle is big and can be a bit hard to handle.

          Best Face Wash I Have EVER Tried

          By eshybee

          from LA

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

          I used this cleanser faithfully for about a year and a half, along with some other products from Clinique. My skin has always been consistently broken out, until I put this product into my skin care regimen. I didn't notice how much it did for my skin until I traded it for another cleanser. I have repurchased and within one wash, I remember why Ioved this product and one of the reasons my skin was the best it had ever been. This product is worth the money and the hype it gets! Invest in your skin care.

                  I have absolutely fallen in love with this cleanser! I have never found something that cleans so well (even gets off eye makeup, ie. mascara, eyeliner) and doesn't strip all the moisture out of my face. It's gentle and creamy (doesn't really suds up), but gets everything off. I'm hooked for life. :)

                    • 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.
