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

    I had bought the Philosophy exfoliating cleanser during Ulta's 21 days of beauty and really liked it. It was starting to get too much for my skin so I decided to try the Purity cleanser to use after seeing all the rave reviews. It has not disappointed! I use it morning and night with Renewed Hope in a Jar and my skin has been great. I suffer from hormonal acne on my jaw line and it is gone! A couple nights a week I mix it with the exfoliating cleanser and the combo is great. The scent is a refreshing lemongrass and is very soothing. The only thing I regret is not trying Philosophy before. I am hooked!

      I use this to take off makeup. I have tried others but always come back to this. I will not try any others. This is the best and has a clean feeling to the face. I have very sensitive skin so I need to be careful what I put on my face.

          This is super gentle cleanser that I have been using for years. It leaves my skin feeling clean, not tight and safe on my sensitive skin. It also removes makeup like a dream. I use it every day and would not be without it.

            I have used Purity off and on for years and find it to be a great basic cleanser that removes makeup and is easy to use. I wish it came with a pump dispenser but other than that it's a good product.

            This stuff it so awesome! My roommate uses it and got me hooked. I've struggled with my pores being too big as well as acne here and there for years and this is the first thing I've tried that actually works. It's definitely worth the price!!

              I bought this product in hopes of balancing out my combination skin but so far it doesn't seem to be making a difference. I have been using it for a month. I wouldn't buy it again just because I could get something cheaper that does the same thing. The plus side is that it removes my makeup and smells great.

                    purity made simple cleanser does hydrate lightly, however if you are interested in longer lasting, deeper hydration you may prefer the purity made simple cleansing oil.

                    because rosacea is a diagnosed skin condition, we always recommend that you check with your physician before using any new products.

                    You can certainly use one as part of your AM cleansing regimen and the other as part of your PM cleansing regimen.
