        I use my cleanser every morning and night with my Clairsonic. It easily removes all my makeup with out much effort on my part. My skin feels clean and moisturized after each use. I'll never go back to those other cleansers!

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

          I've used this product for about four months and have really enjoyed it. It doesn't irritate the skin at all. In fact, that has been one of the things I like the most about this product. In the past, even when using a cleanser for sensitive skin, my face would still get red and very dry. Not with this one! I love how it smells... Hard to describe, but it's a light, clean scent that really does leave you feeling completely refreshed. Another plus is that it seems to last forever. I've been using the same 8 ounce bottle for over two months, once in the mornings and again at night and there is still a decent amount of product left. I use a dime-sized amount (which is more than enough) on my Pro-X. The only things I could say that some people may not care for is that it doesn't do the greatest job at removing makeup. (I use a lotion-based remover, prior to cleansing with this.) Also, it doesn't really seem to help with breakouts but I don't expect that from such a gentle cleanser. Overall, good product and definitely worth the money.

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

              Best face wash I have ever used - I've gone through a lot of different brands over the years and this one beats them all - I have combination skin that is sensitive and this product makes it so I can go with out cover up if I have too without feeling like a mess. It also lasts a very long time one of the larger sized bottles will last me all year very much worth the price

                  • Q:

                    I have combination skin, always breakout in my t-zone. So far nothings seems to keep my random breakouts away. I'll try a new face wash and it seems to work at first and then weeks later my breakouts are back again. Does this cleanser work for combination skin? And will it keep my breakouts away for good?

                    it says use "end of each day *or* at the beginning of each morning"-- is it not recommended to use this product twice daily? I would like to start using this once my clarisonic cleanser runs out but want to make sure it's fine to use morning and night.

You may prefer Clear Days Ahead Acne Treatment Cleanser, which is oil-free and formulated with 1% salicylic acid to combat breakouts without causing irritation:
