    I've used this face wash for a decade and still love it. It's great at removing makeup at the end of the day (mascara, eyeliner, liquid lipstick, etc.) It always leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. Great for combination and acne-prone skin.

                  I like this cleanser, but I don't love it. It definitely does a good job at cleansing my skin and removes most of my makeup while leaving my skin feeling very soft afterward. However, it seems to slightly irritate my sensitive skin. I wish Philosophy would make a version without sulfates. Also, love the smell!
