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

      (Unfortunately, I have dry skin.) I had been using Philosophy's "Purity"...it really does take all your makeup off, and as when the day it was recommended to me this product can also clean your brushes. To use a little and WOW it lasted me for about 4-5yrs with the big bottle. There was only one down fall. As I said my face is dry and when I used it it was dry after putting it on. So like always I put night cream and all was good.
      So when it finished it, I was looking for a face wash that not only cleaned off your makeup but left your skin soft. The lady in the store recommend Clinique's "Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser". Still dry and barely took off my makeup. Went to the little I had left of the "Purity" and of course did the job.

      Returning Clinique's "Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser" and getting the big bottle of Philosophy "Purity" again. ☺

                        A:

                        while we do provide a full list of ingredients of the products, we cannot guarantee our products are gluten free due to not knowing how the ingredients are sourced and could be sourced with shared equipment which may have been in contact with gluten. a medical professional is better equipped to evaluate the ingredient list or drug facts label and assess whether that product is right for you.
