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

      I have been using Purity Cleanser for many years. I would never use anything else. It does a great job cleansing and even removing waterproof mascara. I use it daily with my Clarisonic Mia. I have converted many others to using it also. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and not tight. Highly recommend this cleanser. Once you try it you will stay with it.

              This is the best cleanser. There is no need to remove makeup before cleansing your face. No toner is needed either, so it saves you two steps. It removes waterproof makeup and dirt easily. I use it with my clarisonic.

                        • 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.
