      One of the best cleansers out there. I've worked for 3 major cosmetic lines. I have sensitive combination skin. Always thought I needed an eye makeup remover. This product is a work horse and does a great job.
      Simple packaging, great results. Ladies, it's not that pricey if it eliminates an eye makeup remover. Plus I'm going to try it on my brushes another product eliminated. Yes!

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

        I have always had sensitive, acne prone skin. I tried this after reading amazing reviews online. I'm not sure exactly what the hype is all about. It definitely took all of my makeup off with one wash and could clean my brushes. But it didn't clear my skin or do anything miraculous like other reviews claim. Bottom line, this is a good cleanser for removing makeup but it was not a miracle worker for me.

        This is amazing. I've had some skin problems that left me with sensitive skin. Anything that plumps, tightens, or pulls moisture out is a no go. This makes my skin feel soft and clean. It removes some makeup but not all of it. Mainly waterproof.

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

              About 2 months ago I received a sample of Philosophy: Purity and ya'll!!! It has changed my skin care routine for life. I was totally "happy" with Origins Checks and Balances. It worked well enough for the most part, but it was beginning to over dry my skin and I was getting dry patches even though I was using a moisturizer and started spacing my face washings further and further apart, which in turn lead to more breakouts in the areas I wasn't dried out. So I decided to give it try and I swear I have not looked back... This face wash removes like ALL of my makeup, including my base (which is 24 hour wear), mascara*, & eye liner (*I have found some mascaras come off easier than others, but it still does a pretty good job regardless). To top everything off, I don't think my face has ever been clearer or more balanced - I could totally go sans lotion if I wanted to, but I'm trying to take better care of my skin. This lead me to trying their face moisturizer, Renewed Hope in a Jar, as well, and to my surprise and satisfaction - it also does not break out my face! It feels buttery soft after using it, which is a big deal for anyone who has combination skin, because one my life's biggest struggles in skincare has been finding one that doesn't leave my face feeling like a grease pot/break it out, but also is actually moisturizing where I need it.

                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.
