        This was a nice find. I bought it actually to clean my beauty blenders, so I haven't tried this as a face wash. However, it's gentle and does a great job of cleaning the sponges, so I can only assume it would have a similar effect on the face.

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

            I've tried this out more than one time with the hopes of being proved wrong, but I just don't see what the hype is all about. I always remove my makeup with a wipe first, and then cleanse my skin with a cleanser using my Clarisonic. That was not the case with this one. I still would have a great amount of makeup left on my face and found myself needing to use another makeup wipe, or try using more cleanser. However, I've tried to gel formula by this company and I like it SO MUCH better.

                        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.
