RED SPLOTCHES.

By Oof

from Red splotch vil

Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

I have tried the Clinique dramatically different lotion and had red splotches all over my face just like when I put this on. I don't have very sensitive skin but I would not recommend this also cause it has fragrance which's dries your skin very badly.

Best moisturizer I've ever used

By J

from Portland

Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

I've struggled with consistent acne as a teenager, (w/ combo skin) and this is my savior product. I can't believe it took me so long to find it! Overnight, it completely transformed my skin and people have been commenting on it. I have never really left reviews before Bc honestly I don't really care that much to leave them, but I had to leave one for this because it is ridiculous what it has done to my skin. Even though it doesn't claim to help acne or anything it doesn't have the bad products that can cause it, and I have seen a huge difference in my skin.

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

    Haha I never tried philosophy before and then one day YouTube started brainwashing me with ads after almost every video so I impulse bought a sample and a week later I went back for the full bottle.
    Im more oily in summer and very dry in winter and this worked for me both seasons and doesn't make my skin feel icky if I use sunscreen with it aswell.
    It smells amazing and leaves you super smooth!

    Helped My Acne Prone Skin

    By Nat

    from United States

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

    I was so scared to try this because I couldn't remember the last time I used a moisturizer with oil in it. I've struggled with acne for awhile now and it was finally starting to settle down. When I first used this, I got a couple little whiteheads and got pretty upset. I decided to keep using it and eventually my skin got used to it. It's kept my skin tone so even and my acne is settling down. Don't give up if at first it breaks you out!

    Not for dry and sensitive skin

    By Hannah G

    from Myrtle Beach, SC

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

    I wanted this to work because of the price, but it did not hydrate at all and after a week of using it not only did I have dry patches but also small bumps all over my skin.

    my favorite moisturizer

    By kschimm

    from Missouri

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

    Ok so I've had oily/acne prone skin for pretty much my entire life and every moisturizer I've tried has left me feeling oily and gross, I got so frustrated that I actually just stopped using moisturizer (which is bad I know lol). I tried this moisturizer and I love it! It makes my skin feel amazing and not greasy/oily at all. I really recommend this for people with oily skin because it's enough moisture without feeling gross.

      Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

      I've used this brand for sometime. I was more of a bares essential buyer. As my skin changes with mature age it's been expensive to find what moisturizer is best and won't kill my bank account. Imagine my surprise after months of using this product. I've even replaced my wrinkle cream. Will definitely be purshasing again. I'm hopeful they'll have some gift sets with this mosterizer for the holidays. Ladies over 50 give your face (skin) a couple of uses before you turn away from this product it works on wrinkles

      Not for my skin type

      By grek

      from Minnesota

      Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

      Even though I used the ultra-light version, it was still too much for my skin and made my forehead break out. My skin does lean towards oily in the summer, so if you have oily skin this probably isn't for you. However, it is more effective for drier skin.
