                        Would you need to use a moisturizer in addition to this product? I am used to following a 3-step cleansing routine (cleanse, tone, moisturize) and didn't know if this truly eliminates all those steps.

                          purity made simple would replace your cleanser and toner. we do recommend using a moisturizer to ensure your skin stays hydrated all day.

                          This product is not oil-free. It contains botanically derived oils that help to nourish and condition the skin. It does not contain pore clogging mineral oil.

                      • 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.
