Purity is a good name for the brands Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser because it felt very clean and pure on my skin. I waited to review because I wanted to try the product for several weeks to see how my skin reacted. I would describe my skin as combo that fluctuates toward dry when I dont wear makeup and oily when I do.
For the first week of the trial, I used just Purity and a simple clean-skincare moisturizer. At first, my skin felt overt dry but never flaky. If I didnt get my moisturizer on pretty soon after cleansing, my skin felt tight from drying out. At that point, I was really skeptical about the product even thought it cleanses really well.
I continued the trial and by the second week, my skin felt great! Not too dry, not too oily. By the third week, I was wearing makeup again and my face felt oily even after proper makeup removal. Puritys Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser did a wonderful job getting last vestiges of makeup that my normal routine apparently left behind. I was amazed at what was left in my pores after micellar water and blue lotus milk. However, my face felt oily by bedtime and was very oily the next day. Anytime I wore makeup, I had to increase using the Oil-Free Mattifying Cleanser to at least 2 times a day, and 3 on some days.
As for the mattifying power, my skin which is normally not shiny at all, had a glossy, clean sheen after using the cleanser. It didnt look bad, but it definitely wasnt the matte look I was expecting. The packaging is ok, although I forgot some days I was using facial wash because the bottle and color look more like shampoo. I found myself over pouring and having to put some back. A taller, thin bottle would be more of a mental trigger that this was a face cleanser and a lot goes a long way.
Overall, I would recommend it if 1) you have skin on the oilier side (def not for dry skin) and 2) dont wear a waterproof makeup. While the cleanser did get the waterproof makeup off, it didnt get rid of the oily sensation left behind. The mattifying power was kind of weak too. From my experience, this is a skip for me.

This cleanser is super effective, yet mild enough for even the most sensitive skin. I have used this cleanser for several years and it literally takes everything off of your face including makeup however it doesn't strip your face or irritate your skin. I highly recommend this product to everyone especially those who have a very hard time finding a cleanser due to having sensitive skin.

I clearly love this so much that I always get the jumbo size. I love the way this cleanses my skin and isn't harsh or stripping. The scent is very light and it somewhat lathers but not really. I also like using this to take makeup off.

I use this as a second step of double cleansing on the makeup days. It gets the job done and doesn't dry out my skin. Bonus is cruelty-free and clean ingredients!
Heather from Idaho
I really like this cleanser because it is oil free and not drying. I break out if I use any products with oil on my face.

I received this as a birthday gift from Ulta Beauty and I thought it should be fine for dry skin but it's not. It doesn't affect my sensitive skin at all but it dries my skin a lot more after every use.

I've been using purity made simple for years. It's my favorite cleanser. It's gentle on my skin and does a great job. It doesn't really have a scent. It just smells clean.

I use this everyday! Cleans without being harsh. Gentle, doesn't dry out your skin. Not scented but still very refreshing! A little on the pricey side though.

I recently discovered this facial cleanser, and have been hooked ever since. I have both a smaller travel size and the larger tub. It works great on my skin and doesn't cause any sort of reaction. I've noticed I don't even have to double cleanse. It just takes off my impurities face oil and or full coverage makeup up with no issues. The scent is delightful and not over powering. It reminds me of something refreshing you would find out a five star hotel. A little goes a long way so I feel the product as well worth the price.

Love this cleanser! Makes my skin feel super clean without dryness. And a little goes a long way.

Smells good. Leaves skin soft and melts makeup right off. Even black eyeliner and waterproof mascara comes off so easy. I totally recommend using this product.

This product has been a stample in my daily rutine for probably 10 years now. A little bit truly goes a long way and cleans makeup after a long day of wear perfectly. Does not irritate the eyes. I highly recommended it. I have a travel sized one in each of the bathrooms cuz honestly you never know where you'd be taking your makeup off hahaha.

pretty good cleanser for normal, dry, oily, not to acne prone skin. i used this a lot before i started dealing w acne and it worked well to cleanse. i wouldn't recommend for acne prone skin since it doesn't contain any ingredients targeting acne. this would work well for dry skin especially since it hydrates a bit

This is my favorite face wash. It never leaves my face too dry or oily. The price is reasonable as it lasts a long time! Would highly recommend going to buy.

It pretty much did nothing. Didn't feel like it cleaned my face at all and most definitely did not remove any sort of makeup. Tried multiple times but never understood the hype.

One step and it works
Great for sensitive skin. I would recommend this to a lot of people. I love using the product I got it for my birthday and I'm still using it. I'm actually gonna buy another big bottle .

This is the holy grail of face wash. I have used this for over 2 years and I will never switch back to my old product. I have mainly dry skin and this face wash does not dry it out anymore. It doesn't have scent and glides on your face and washes very well. But it !!

I've used this face cleanser once and haven't bought it again I didn't like it at all it didn't clean my skin good after washing my face I still have make up left on my face. It also doesn't do enough foam so your face isn't getting cleaned.I do not recommend this product

I used this product for many years. I use it when I double cleanse. It removes all your makeup. Even the waterproof stuff.
nikkimcgarey from undisclosed
Wasn't a fan of the smell, and it made my skin really dry and itchy. I feel like it stripped my skin of all its natural oils.
suchakitty from undisclosed
This is one of the best cleansers I've tried so far. It's so gentle on my dry skin- leaves it soft and clean everytime. It's great at removing makeup - even water proof mascaras. Highly recommend!

I love using the philosophy purity as a face wash every morning. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't make my skin too dry but also does the hard work of cleaning my skin.
