Most Helpful Positive Review GREAT except for the alarming chemicals
I've used this product for about two years now, after trying out the $10 travel size purchased while waiting in line at Sephora. It works wonders to remove makeup of all kinds (even some heavier mascaras) with ZERO redness while leaving skin so supple and soft. My ONLY concern and one I wish would be addressed, is the presence of harmful parabens in this product. I go out of my way to avoid these in sunscreens and other products, and think it's a shame that a brand like philosophy, and especially a product called "purity," hasn't figured out how to replace these.
Most Helpful Critical Review This product didn't work for me.
I loved the idea of this product - - I really did. It sounds great. It smelled fine, felt nice on the face. Unfortunately, it wasn't strong enough to cleanse my skin. I still had breakouts and redness. It was unable to take off my make-up. It didn't dry my skin, it didn't irritate my skin - but it really didn't do ANYTHING to my skin, either. I've switched to other products and immediately seen a difference.. there are other sensitive skin options out there that WILL clear skin. Maybe this is a good option for people with minimal skin problems? Not for me.

Love this face wash. Won't go back to any others.

So the lady at the store told me that this product cleans your makeup off and is an excellent cleanser. I didn't believe it would do such a good job at cleaning off my makeup! I washed my face in the shower and it took it all off!! Eye makeup included! No mascara or liner streaks under my eyes.. seriously amazed!
Prior to this product I had tried neutrogena makeup wipes and they gave me BAD CHEMICAL BURNS! But this product is awesome. You need this in your life.
Andra from Covington
I don't normally feel obligated to write reviews, but if you're someone looking for a great skin care routine this is it! Gentle on the skin, smells amazing, and leaves me skins soft tight and smooth. I pair this with the exfoliator and moisturizer and my skin looks and feels amazing. Clears my break outs, gets rid of red irritating skin, shrinks my pores
Great face wash
R from Nj
Great for all skin types
Makes my skin feel soft!
Leslie from Los Angeles
I usually just use a bit and massage all over my face and then use my luna2 to wash my face, but it makes my face feel and look great when I rinse.
It was okay

Did not work for me. Irritated my skin. Gave me breakouts
Best face wash only
Teeny from Torrington ct
Takes my makeup off with ease and does not make my face feel dry afterwards
Only cleanser I will use
Kstack from Denver
I discovered this about 7 years ago. It's the best. It's gentle on the skin but takes off all makeup. Will never use anything else again.
Kimbaybe from Sacramento CA
OMG this is literally the most amazing cleanser in the world!!!!! I use it every morning and every night. I've tried to replace it cause there's cheaper options let's face it but there's no replacing it. This stuffs amazing! AMAZING for removing makeup but honestly just does wonders for your skin. If you're a die hard fan already like me don't get the one with the pump because the pump is horrible! It leaves globs and globs of the cleanser on my counter/shower wherever I put it. So just stick to the 16 oz!
This is the best face wash I've ever used.
kk from Utah
This product is creamy and gentle and literally melts the make up off with out stripping oils.
Love this stuff!
I wanted to love this
Jess from Temple, Tx
I wanted to love this, but I never had so many break outs before using this product! I heard to many great reviews with this brand and decided to just go for it. I was going to get the original one but the lady at my Ulta recommended this one since I have oily skin. I must say it did help control my oilyness but had lots of break outs!
Must Have Cleanser

I have used this cleanser now for about 2 years and have nothing but good things to say about it. After use my face feels clean and fresh!
Do yourself a favor, do NOT buy this
Roni from Texas
About a year or so ago, my mom gifted me a travel size bottle of this. I used it, along with my other normal skincare, and I started getting a horrible reaction. I had a red rash that ran under my eyes to about mid cheek. My skin was dry and scaly and it burned horribly. I eventually figured out it was this face wash causing the reaction. It took weeks for my rash to go away and even when the redness left I was left with dry scaly skin. I had to work very hard to get my skin back to normal. If you have sensitive skin, DO NOT USE. This product is everything BUT PURE.
Refreshing and Soft
jules from michigan
Such a good cleanser! I am 23 and have horrible acne plus combo-skin. I use it twice a day and have used it for about a month now. It has cleared up all of my acne and my skin feels soft and balanced. I highly recommend using if you are struggling with acne and have combo-skin.
Love this one
Kat121 from Los Angeles
First, the scent. It smells like a day at the beach. A little of this goes a long way. Nice mild lather, and my skin feels clean but not stripped after. Rinses nicely. We're having a heatwave in Los Angeles as I write this, so when I washed last night I didn't follow with a moisturizer as I wanted my skin to breathe. When I got up this morning I didn't feel greasy or yuck. I forgot how much I love this cleanser
Used this for years, wish I could take it all back
Bacchante from Alaska
I used this twice daily for many years. I don't know how I didn't notice it's horrible, but it is. The formula is irritating, drying, just every bad thing you can think of. Many irritating ingredients, and dried my skin out. My skin was constantly red, breakout prone, and dehydrated while I used this. Do yourself a favor and switch to CeraVe or Cetaphil. There is no reason to use an irritating cleanser. There is nothing good in this bottle.
Me from Slc utah
Bought in a sample kit during Christmas time. Smells like an old mildewed towel, and not seeing anything special. I wanted to love this product but can't over over awful smell, plus not life changing.
Kay from CA
Love this cleanser! It removes makeup so well & best of all, they reformulated it without parabens!! I've always wanted to try it but never did due to it having parabens, so I'm happy I'm able to now. Removed my makeup & cleansed my face at the same time (left no trace of makeup). Ignore the other reviewer who said it's full of parabens because it's not anymore!
Aly from Katy, Texas
I really loved this product! It's been a staple for the woman in my family, since I can remember. This face wash is amazing for my skin (which is prone to acne). It makes my skin feel so soft and literally melts off my makeup. It leaves my face feeling fresh and hydrated. I 100% recommend:))
Best Facial Cleanser!
MedicMama from Lansing, Michigan
This is my nighttime cleanser, and it's amazing! I prefer to do 2-step cleaning especially if Ive worn makeup, and this is my 2nd step. It is amazing, works so efficiently yet gently. I'm 51 years old and plagued by acne breakouts but still need to care for aging skin. A little goes a long way so it's worth the price!
Excellent for teen with sensitive skin!
SoFloMom from South Florida
My teen daughter has severe skin sensitivities to Cetaphil and Cerave- she develops large red patches that take a week to resolve, dermatologist explains it's a sensitivity to stabilizers or preservatives, who knows. This is the only cleanser gentle enough for her to use daily!
MJD from Pittsburgh
This is the BEST cleanser, I've been avidly using it for 7 years. I have such sensitive skin I used to think I was acne prone until I realized my various cleansers were causing the problems. I wear full face makeup 4-5 days a week, and this removes ALL of it. I don't need a balm or a wipe to start the process, one pump of this takes off everything and then I rinse and use one more with my Foreo and my skin is ready for toner and moisturizer. It's natural, never burns my eyes, causes zero irritation, and fully removes all makeup and debris from my pores. I've recommended it to my friends and family and they all love it too!
LJ from Greensboro NC
I wash my face with purity twice a day with a clairasonic and my face has never looked better. It always feels clean and hydrated and smooth. I e been using it for years
Jackie from Bronx
Full of parabens, don't recommend.
Don't use for sensitive or acne prone skin
skincare from San diego
It left me with red inflamed pimples the next day. don't use for sensitive skin. Has a lot of essential oils that are not good for your skin
