            I usually use Biore deep pore charcoal cleanser. I got the Purity in an Ulta offer. I agree with most reviewers on this site I can't think of anything bad to say about this product. if I saw it in a future sale I would grab it up.

              I love this. I love it in the shower in the morning. I love it in the evening. It's definitely a thicker consistency than the regular purity but I kind of like that about this.

                I used to use the normal purity face was, but now I switched to the gel. The gel purity face was does a much better job removing makeup! I am a huge purity fan; I have been for years!! It's super gentle and I'm just in love with it. It may seem a little pricey, but it is totally worth every single penny!!

                  Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleansing Gel:

                  Love Philosophy's products! I debated about buying this cleanser for a bit prior to finally purchasing it, and I am glad that I did. My skin is super temperamental so I am super nervous about trying anything new. It says its for oilier skin types which fits perfectly with mine. My skin is super oily, acne prone and easily irritated. This cleanser isn't harsh on my face, doesn't break me out and does a really great job taking off makeup. It takes a little more work to erase my eye makeup, but does really well otherwise and I don't need a lot of product either. It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy or tight. Its the perfect amount of clean feeling. The 'bottle' is huge, so I anticipate this lasting me a long time, which is awesome! For the quality, price and effectiveness I think this was a great purchase.

                    I started using this gel cleanser after I had to see a dermatologist for a really bad breakout. It has kept me clear ever since. It's super concentrated so a dime size cleanses my face, neck, and chest. This product usually lasts me about 4-6 months. I highly recommend this product to anyone with oily, combination skin. I use it twice daily with no irritation at all. Love it!!

                        purity made simple cleansing gel tends to work better with normal to oily skin. it also foams more than the purity one step cleanser. if you prefer a foaming cleanser, this may be your perfect match!
