      I had been using cetaphil and it wasn't taking my makeup off. I switched to this a few months ago and this by far is one of the best face washes out there to take off your makeup. I love this product because it's gentle on my sensitive acne-prone skin.

        Washed as recommended and, even though I wear light makeup and no waterproof types, I'm not thrilled with it's effectiveness in cleaning thoroughly. Others say it "melts" away makeup. Hmmm.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

              I NEVER had bad acne before using this product. I had hormonal pimples every now and then and sometimes a few whiteheads. I switched from my previous skin care routine because I was tired of using a 3 step process. When I bought this cleanser, I used it twice a day, everyday, for 2 months. When I first started using it, I got tiny bumps all over my cheeks and thought "maybe it's just trying to get rid of anything deep down in my pores, my face will get better". Well, my face only broke out worse. I got cystic acne all over my chin and white heads and black heads all over my forehead. I was so embarrassed and felt like I had to wear makeup everyday. I gave this product a 2 month trial because I really wanted to see if things would get better and they never ever did. I would not recommend this product to anyone at all. I will be going back to a 3 step system that uses different ingredients in each step because that seems to be effective in getting rid of and keeping away acne.

              Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser:

              At first when I started using this, I didnt see much of a difference, so I combined it with my DHC pure soap and my clarisonic and it worked well.

              My pores look smaller and my skin looks the best it has in a year or two. My skin doesn't break out as often as it used to as well, and when I can feel a breakout coming this stuff stops it in its track. I ran out of this stuff recently and have been relying on only my DHC pure soap and I started breaking out again. (I combine it with the DHC soap because it seems to work better that way than by itself.)

              I don't wear makeup often, but I found that this stuff removed it quite well when I did. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, which surprised me since every makeup remover I have tried does. It works great as both a makeup remover and a face wash. Highly recommend!

              (If you are trying this for the first time just know there are small carry-on size bottles available so you don't have to worry about spending so much on something you don't know if you'll like)

              tldr; works well as makeup remover and face soap and doesn't irritate

                          No, it is not recommended to use the Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser around the eyelash extensions. You want to look at the Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing Water. Consulting with the manufacturer of the extension to confirm the best cleanser.
