    Disappointed

    By ER

    from MN

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

    I love Philosophy products. I bought this online when I wanted to meet the free shipping minimum and realized I don't have a great daily cleanser that is gentle for the eye area but can remove stubborn makeup.

    This is not the product. Besides not loving the scent (it smells like bar soap - not unscented as would be my preference, but like Dove bar soap), this product does a very poor job cleaning up makeup. I find I need to use both a makeup remover or cloth cleansing wipe BEFORE this wash. No thanks. And to top it off, I'm breaking out in the creases of my nostrils...which never happens.

    Back to the drawing board.

            I use this face wash every night before bed! I have acne prone skin so it's nice to have a face wash that I can use that doesn't break me out, as well as it doesn't dry out my skin. By far the best face wash I've ever used!

              I use this to wash my face every morning and every night. Smells amazing and after using it for a week my complexion looks brighter and my pores definitely look smaller. Not life changing, but it works well. Will probably repurchase when I run out.

                      A:

                      while we do provide a full list of ingredients of the products, we cannot guarantee our products are gluten free due to not knowing how the ingredients are sourced and could be sourced with shared equipment which may have been in contact with gluten. a medical professional is better equipped to evaluate the ingredient list or drug facts label and assess whether that product is right for you.
