        I bought this because one of the sales girls st ulta said it was just like the purity wipes but better. I throes to use it that same day to clean off my face I was only wearing mascara. It did t remove anything instead my mascara flakes off and went in my eye this did not remove the Macaria at all.

              Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing Water:

              I was looking for a good, simple makeup remover/cleanser to use on nights when I use my exfoliating masks, since my regular cleanser has an exfoliator built in. At the recommendation of the store associate, I went ahead and purchased this - they told me it could be used as much as necessary throughout the day to remove excessive oils, etc.

              Well - using this product once a day left my skin feeling so horrifically tight and dry that it took three times as long for my normal treatments and moisturizer to be able to soak into my skin - this is after a toner meant to help prep the skin for further treatments that had been working well thus far. And even after my moisturizing treatments soaked in, my skin still felt incredibly dehydrated - while producing more oil in one night than it had in the prior two weeks before introducing this product into my beauty regimen.

              On the bright side - Ulta has a FANTASTIC return/exchange policy. I look forward to getting something better, that works well for my skin.

              Really enjoyed the product. I don't use it for my mascara / eye shadow but to remove my brows & face makeup. It works very well.

                  I have been using Philosophy products for close to six months. Until recently I had only used the cleanser, day cream, and night cream and I love all three! I was excited when Philosophy created their Micellar water. Thus far I love it! It can tend to lightly dry your face but if you use the Renewed Hope in a Jar day cream after using the Micellar water it works wonders! Good luck!

                    Honestly, I use this right after washing my face full of make up at night. I squirt a little onto a cotton pad and just wipe it all over my face and eyes. I love it. Ive been using this for 3 weeks now and my face feel so much smoother. I had bad acne in the beginning of this year, and let me tell you... I've seen less and less acne. It's minimized my pores so much. I use this also in the morning right after I wash my face as well.

                          What is the best way to use this product? I have tried using it after cleaning my makeup off with purity face wash and using it alone as a cleanser. I have started to break out and I'm not sure if I'm just using it wrong or if it is the product

                            The Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing Water is a stand alone cleaner. Combining the cleansers may cause the breakouts or "purging process' to occur. Saturate a cotton pad and gently wipe over the area, this will remove makeup and dirt. This will cleanse the area thoroughly.
