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

    I have sensitive skin and very picky up what I can use. Reasonable priced and makes my skin feel great. I have an older young adult son who is acne prone. He started using this on his face daily. It cleared up his skin. He likes it doesn't have a smell and easy to use. Since he started using this I saw a huge difference in his skin.

    I was given a much more expense sample of men's Clinique. He preferred this one. The best part it's great for the whole family to use. It's not really great just for one specific type.

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

          I switched over to this a few years ago after having random breakouts. While I did make some other changes to my skin care, I really believe this was a large piece of the puzzle. Its super gentle so I'm now worried about drying my skin out. I like to use this with apple cider vinegar as a toner and then the Breath moisturizer. Ever since, I've been acne free. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the cost.

                      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.
