my holy grail

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

I've tried probably every single face wash ever made because I had horrible acne when I was a teen, and nothing ever worked for me. I started using the purity cleanser and my acne finally started going away! Sometimes if I use a different brand of face soap it'll clog my pores and break me out! Purity really does work because it has cleared my skin up!

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

        I've always struggled with sensitize, combination skin but never had tons of zits. Usually a breakout on a certain part of my face and blackheads. I tried a new moisturizer and my whole face broke out with big zits. This was recommended to me so I tried it. Only used it for 3 days and I'm never using it again. I can definitely tell it's shrinking my zits but it had dried out my skin sooo bad! And when I moisturize after I wash my face with Purity, it BURNS. Just doesn't work for me.

          I have used the Purity Gel Cleanser for years. My skin has been getting dryer so I thought I would try the One-Step cleanser. I use it twice daily and feel like my skin is cleaner than with the gel and it's more moisturizing.

                  The Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser contains a toner to eliminate a step. It helps to remove dirt, oil and debris. You may want to try the Purity Made Simple Exfoliating Clay mask for the removal whiteheads.

                Some of the Purity Made Simple bottles say "3-in-1 cleanser" and others say "1-step cleanser". Are these the same product/formulation, or has the product been reformulated?

                  The Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser and Purity Made Simple Foaming 3-1 Cleansing Gel for Face and Eyes are two different products. Both providing the same superior removal of dirt, debris and makeup. The difference would be in the consistency of the two products, one is in an emulsion and the other providing a foaming lather.
