    I really wanted to love this product after I've heard some raving reviews from my favorite youtubers but it has dried my face out a lot. My face is usually dry but this cleanser has made my forhead, chin, and around my nose flaky and itchy.

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

      This face wash is a face wash that is raved about all over youtube because IT IS AMAZING.. I have struggled with redness in my face and acne for 11 YEARS now. I am in my mid 20s and I am so sick of having acne so I went out on a limb and bought this face wash. At first I hated it, for the first week it dried my face out a bit, but after that first week my face balanced out and it wasn't oily or dry. It became pretty normal (and still is). I loved how this face wash removed all of my makeup and made my face feel clean and hydrated. I also began seeing immediate results in my overall skin tone and also my acne cleared up within the first few weeks. I have now been using this face wash for 7 months and I am still in love. I get a few breakouts every now and then but only around my time of the month. But because I use this face wash the breakouts instantly clear up within a matter of 1 or 2 days. Now that I found this cleanser I will not use another cleanser and I will continue purchasing this one because it has truly improved my face. Who knew that to help my acne I just needed to use a gentle cleanser that didn't say "acne clearing" on the bottle.

      So wanted to love this cleanser after all of the good reviews. Unfortunately while this did clean my skin it left me feeling extremely tight and super dry to the point of flaking!! Will not repurchase.

          I wanted this cleanser to work for me so bad, with all the great reviews it just didn't. Obviously it is good for a lot of people, I would say not for people with dry skin. I used it for a week and each time my face would feel tight and dry, like all the hydration was gone.

          It's ok. It did clean my face very well but my skin just felt so dry afterwards I felt like I had to use extra moisturizer after washing my face. I'll stick with my garnier and neutrogena cleansers

            I really wanted to make this face cleanser work. I noticed that I started to breakout more and in areas I typically didn't see acne. I didn't feel much of a difference after using this twice a day. On the other hand, my husband loves this. Works wonders for him!

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

              I use this after using makeup wipes to cleanse my face entirely of ALL traces of makeup! It works beautiful and is so gentle/non-irritating. I have oily acne prone skin and this cleanser is very gentle on my skin. I also use it to clean my makeup brushes. I mix Purity in a bowl with boiling water and let my brushes sit for a little while. After about 5 mins, the makeup has literally melted off and all I have to do is rinse and let them air dry. This cleanser is a game-changer and I'll probably be purchasing the large value size!

                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.
