Most Helpful Critical Review philosophy purity Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer
i received this product free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review.
i wanted to ensure i was able to get a thorough review, so i took more time with it as it takes a bit to see results with skincare products.
the first thing i recognized was the overwhelming fragrance. i know tatcha has fragrance in their skincare, so it was unfair to completely disregard it based on that. however, fragrance does irritate the skin.
i used it in the morning and in the evening. in the morning i applied this product and then sunscreen for my work day. in the evening, it was my last step in my skincare routine, coming after toning. i found that it sometimes stung my face when i put it on, but that feeling did not last.
i had some pimples form along my jawline, but i honestly attribute that more to having to wear a mask at work daily. i use this product as my barrier between my face and my mask.
my favorite use for this was under makeup. it is noticeably mattifying, so its great for oily areas. i really liked how my makeup looked after i applied it over the moisturizer, although there were some spot under my eyes that would lift up when i applied my concealer because i use my fingertips.
i cant say i would recommend this product. it is definitely mattifying, and if thats what youre looking for go for it. you also get a lot of product. however, it does have a strong scent, which to me was off putting. i believe i will continue to use this in my t zone and under my mask.

I bought this because I have oily and sensitive skin. I use the purity mattifying cleanser. I was using hope in a jar after my cleanser but I wanted something a little more light weight. I have only used it once but the day I did use it my face wasn't oily by the end of the day. I usually get pretty shiny by mid day and by the time I get home my face feels so greasy I can't wait to shower. I will be making this product apart of my beauty routine!

I have the oilers skin, and it's been even worse with having to wear masks. This moisturizer literally keeps my skin oil free all day. It is my saving grace!!!! Seriously the best. Trust me!
CJ2015 from Florida
I wanted to just try this product, didn't see any smaller sizes at the moment so I ordered the full size since you really can't go wrong with philosophy. This is my new go to moisturizer, usually by mid day I have a heavy some what oily feel on my face, this product was all day strong.
Good value, but not for me
Tiffany from Irvine, CA
I have really oily skin and was looking for a moisturizer that wouldn't feel greasy or heavy. This fit the bill, but it was not quite hydrating enough and my face still felt tight after using it. I also wasn't a fan of the scent. It's great value for the price, and it didn't break me out, so might be worth a try, but I'll keep looking for my holy grail.

This product is really amazing. My skin has been clearing up really fast. Its been soft, glowy, and clear. I would usually wake up and wash my face and put it on and then at night do the same process and it did wonders for my face. It is actually mattifying. I would definitely recommend Purity Oil-free Mattifying Moisturizer to anyone
love the oil-free of it

My skin has become even more complicated since giving birth 3 months ago. This Purity Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer by #Philosophy i received complimentary via #Influenster is great!! One pump is all I need (some days require a tiny bit more) after Ive cleaned my face in the morning and at night. My face has been a lil but on the drier side lately, but if you have oily skin (like I used to) this product is for you!!

I think its a pretty solid basic moisturizer. I have combination skin, and in the humid summer, its nice to have a mattifying first step in the morning. It is extremely lightweight and refreshing, although I find it can pill with makeup due to all the silicones as mattifiers.
Purity Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer
lilyluv_lopez from undisclosed
I was pleased to be part of the Purity campaign, as well as testing the new oil-free mattifying moisturizer. I loved that it was super light weight. Since my skin type is oily, the oil-free mattifying moisturizer was able to maintain a matte look for most of the day. It does say its a 24 hours matte finish look but it was more around 12, but since I am active throughout the day that can contribute to it becoming less matte. It did not make my face any more oily than it normally is which was amazing. If your skin is oily or a combination I recommend it if you are looking for a light weight moisturizer.
i really love this!

The moisturizer is one of the best i have tried! Its lightweight and really hydrate my dry spots. I have combo skin and i really enjoy that its oil free so i dont get any other oil besides the oil i produce. I def recommend!
Deborah D from Golden, CO
I think this is the best moisturizer I have ever used. It is not greasy and does not irritate my skin. I live where it it very dry so I need moisturizer yet it can not be heavy or I break out. This one does the trick. I will buy again.

I liked this product. It mattified my skin and made it feel really soft. The price is not too expensive. It does good under makeup.
Definitely mattifying. Lacking in moisture
E_Harris from Tampa, FL
I'm a big fan of the rest of Philosophy's Purity line. But the mattifying moisturizer left my skin feeling dry and tight. I switched to this one to save money over my previous favorite brand. My skin always felt soft and moisturizer without being oily. I was hoping for the same result with this one, but it hasn't lived up to those expectations. I've also been experiencing breakouts on my cheeks and forehead since shortly after purchasing this product. I don't know if the product itself is to blame, or the overall change in my skincare routine. But I'm unlikely to purchase again.
This is awesome!

I love this stuff. I have combination skin and get really oily in the t zone area, but I need the moisture this stuff is amazing!
mochahontas from undisclosed
This is probably one of the best moisturizers Ive ever received! It is super hydrating! It has a gel feeling to it but blends into the skin like lotion almost. Very pleasant and instantly makes my skin look hydrated and supple.
Mattifying while moisturizing
stace_stagram from undisclosed
I absolutely love this Moisturizer. Especially for summer when my combination skin is a little oilier. It smells like a spa and feels amazing when putting it on. Then it dries down to more of a satin finish rather than a totally matte finish. Since I don't really wear makeup these days, it gives my skin a really beautiful blurred look. I received this for free in a voxbox from influenster.

Purely Sticky Purity Moisturizer
meaghanlc63d from undisclosed
This product goes on sticky and leaves your skin shiny and wet. I used as a nighttime moisturizer and couldnt imagine trying to put on under make-up. Overall underwhelming as Ive typically found most Philosophy products to be outside of their packaging.
josee_2013 from undisclosed
So Ive been testing this product out for a few weeks and Ive got to say Ive seen a huge improvement in my skin tone. My skin is less oily at the end of the day, my skin is softer and brighter. The scent is light and not overpowering, the texture of the product is nice. I like that it has pump for easy use.
love this stuff
jennybrew from undisclosed
I love this moisturizer so much. Its perfect for summer. It helps keep my skin from getting oily during the day. Make up goes on well over it. Smells lovely!
love this everyday product.
sarahthomasadb3eb457 from undisclosed
Ive worn this moisturizer under my mask to work for the past few weeks. Its a great lightweight moisturizer without being greasy or breaking out. I havent been wearing much more than a light tint on my face over it but its been working.

I received a bottle of Philosophy Purity Oil Free Mattifying Moisturizer complementary from influenster This product is an absolute game changer! I have oily skin and it has always been extremely difficult to find a moisturizer doesnt leave my skin looking super greasy and shiny. I use this moisturizer after cleansing my face both AM and PM.I loved how easy it was to apply and how it absorbed easily into my skin. I really loved the smell. It was not overpowering at all! What I enjoy most about this product is that a little goes a long way which it great from my pockets lol! I will definitely recommend this product and have added it to my daily and nightly skin care routine!
Specific Uses for Product
boldbeautyandrea from undisclosed
I have been playing around with this for a new weeks and I had an interesting experience.
Up front, as a daily moisturizer my skin hates it. When used the way I normally use moisturizer, the skin on the lower half of my face and neck broke out.
I did find this works pretty well if I use it more as a moisturizing primer under makeup. Having this on for limited amounts of time rather then all day reduced the breakouts some and the foundations I've used over it have looked incredible through their wear.
I do have sensitive skin that breaks out over a lot and I'm very oily in my TZone. This was great under makeup as a primer, not so good wearing it all of the time as a moisturizer.
great for oily skin!
tokyojuliya from undisclosed
Super light weight. Adds just a little moisture when needed for oily skin. Drys super quickly and has a pleasant scent!
This stuff is awesome!
hellsbellebeth from undisclosed
I was so excited to get to try this! and I was not disappointed. In fact I was really impressed. I don't normally like using moisturizers on my face often because they tend to break me out. But this one does not. It absorbs into your skin almost instantly. It doesn't leave any kindof sticky or greasy or oily residue and did not make me break out. The packaging was nice and it has a really nice natural, clean and pure smell, not too strong at all but just right. I would definately recommend this to my friends and anyone thinking about trying it, even if you don't have oily skin.
