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.
Reviewed by 8674 customers Great cleanser
Jenn from Nevada
It's honestly a great cleaner. It's makes your face feel soft after you use it. It takes off make up great. I have combination skin and I pair this cleanser with the moisturizer and it works wonders! It doesn't really do anything for my acne since I have hormonal acne I just treat it as it comes since I can't really prevent it anyway. But since this cleanser paired with the moisturizer keeps my skin hydrated, it speeds up the healing process for my acne. I do get oily towards the end of the night but I've always been an oily grease ball so doesn't matter too much, a little oil blotting sheet/ powder will do the trick.
I haven't bought a new once since summer 2020 and I heard they revamped a couple products so not sure if the quality or ingredients have changed.
ONLY Facewash I will use!
Kay from LA
This facewash removes all traces of makeup and grime in just one cleansing! It doesn't strip my skin and also doesn't leave any residue. I will never use anything else. Anytime I try to, I always come back.
Nice clean without sensitivity
Heather from Indiana
This is a great cleanser for anyone who has experienced sensitivity in the past. I love the pump, but I think it gives just a little too much. I can use this every day without having my skin develop any sensitive areas which I've had in the past with other cleansers claiming to be gentle or for sensitive skin.
My favorite face wash
All I from Lancaster, Ca
I use this product at night and in the morning because it's so gentle on my skin. I love it because it feels my skin feeling moisturized and not dry and stiff.
Summer from Vermont
This cleanser used to be my HOLY GRAIL!!! When I went in to get a new bottle, I noticed the packaging was different. Usually when the packaging changes they change the ingredients too. I was right. They added isopropyl alcohol high in the ingredients list and switched up the rest of the ingredients. My face used to feel cleansed but not stripped at all. Now it leaves a sticky residue and is too drying. Such a shame :(
Didn't work for me
Meghan from N/A
Let me start off by saying this — I have combination skin & this did not dry my skin out at all. The smell is fairly strong which I didn't enjoy. This cleanser does not lather well!! Regardless of how much you put on, it just does not lather. I wanted to try this out because it got so many good reviews, but it just didn't work for me. The texture on my skin only got worse & my pore size increased. Wouldn't recommend.
I would buy this product again
Charley from Milwaukee, WI
I'm normally pretty skeptical when I want to try mew products. I'll read the reviews and see that most people love it and then there is one person who doesn't. I'm always afraid I'll be like that one person and have a bad reaction. But with this product that was not the case. I received a trial size after buying the nature in a jar moisturizer (also amazing!!!) and I've only used this for 3 days and my skin is amazing! I love how it feels on my skin, lathers just a little but not too much. Super moisturizing, you can just feel it taking away dirt and makeup. I'm very pleased with this product and think this is the answer to my skincare needs!! I would highly recommend this product (and no I'm not being paid to say this! I really do love the product!)
I love this product !

You on need a little bit !
Busy Mom from Canton, GA
I use this to remove my makeup, including my eye makeup. My eyes are sensitive and it doesn't bother them at all. It's not sticky and leaves my skin soft and clean. I couldn't live without it!
Purity made simple really helps.....
MamaG1 from Brentwood
I buy 'purity-made-simple' for my 17 yo son...he has mild acne/breakouts. Once I got him started with Purity... his acne/skin looks so much better!!
Best face cleanser ever
April from Orlando
Let me start off by saying that I have very dry skin. This cleanser never leaves my skin feeling stripped or dry like other cleansers, and it is great at removing makeup. You can tell it's actually cleaning. I also like the smell and texture of it. Will repurchase for life.
Amazing. Stopped all breakouts.
Sclifford86 from Missouri
I've never had a great skincare routine but decided during covid it would be a perfect time to get one set. I cleanse day and night with this and my pores immediately got smaller and all breakouts stopped. I use this and follow up with Boscia toner, serums and moisturizer.
Noomie from USA
My grandma got this cleanser for me because I've always had sensitive skin. Now I've been using it for 6 years and all my family members use it now. It's the best cleanser you will ever find
JEMburn137 from South Carolina
I have been using for years. It is a great cleanser and takes the makeup off with ease.
Skinlover from MA
You may as well use dial soap to wash your face..at least it would wash makeup off. This product is so drying. Advice-dont bother wasting your money on this trash.
Purity feels like liquid gold.
Rio Rita from NJ
Love Purity; it feels like I am washing my face with the softest velvet.
So gentle and pampering
mommymc from NJ
I love using this cleanser in the morning as well as in the shower to wash my face. It's super gentle and the scent takes me back to when I was a kid when my Mom would buy Ivory soap. However it doesn't dry out my skin the way Ivory soap does. Has a nice creamy lather and skin feels soft and smooth after using it.
Only cleanser that I use now!
Kimberly the gardener from Del Mar CA
Love this face wash. Won't go back to any others.
JRK2010 from Tennessee
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
PK from Washington
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.
