my first time ever buying this cleanser, I read so much reviews and some of them are negative comments. However, I rather tried it by myself, and I feel great that I did because I can feel the soft and gentle from this cleanser. I use it twice a day. I have make up on during the weekday because of work. I use this cleanser to remove my make up and the follow with Cethaphil. My face is super clean. Then in the morning routine, I use only philosophy to wash my face. Think about buying the bigger bottle. OH, and the smell doesn't bother me at all.

I don't know about this..I tried it because of all the great reviews on it..although it does remove makeup very well it dried out my skin and made me breakout I do have sensitive skin and it claims to moisturize but not so much for me..so I think this would be better for someone with oily/combination skin ..I liked the smell and wish it would have worked out for me but I guess it just wasn't for me..

Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

After first trying this product, I was hooked on its ability to shrink pores, even out skin surface, make skin radiant...after using first bottle up, went back to less expensive 'big name' products...their performance didn't come close. don't often splurge on myself, but this is worth it.

    Best Uses

      Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

      Read the reviews and had high hopes. I'm not sure why it received such top ratings and an Allure Reader's Choice Award. I use L'Oreal's Waterproof Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara (which is excellent I might add) and it barely makes a dent in getting it off. It doesn't do half the things it claims to as a one-step cleanser. Also, it has a clinical lemon smell to it and it's runny, almost watery. I found no benefit to this product at all and for the price it was very disappointing. I don't recommend it.

        Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

        I have never found a better face wash that leaves my skin as clean without feeling stripped. I didn't give this product five stars for one reason and one reason only - IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE.

          True love! The best cleanser I've ever used. This is my third bottle. Super clean, not dry, even capable of removing makeups. Recommend to all sensitive-oily friends.

            Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

            Although a budget buyer, I have no qualms spending my dollars on Philosophy Purity. First, it is gentle and does not irritate my rosacea. Second, it leaves my skin clean with no residue, nor is it dried out. Third, it may require an outlay, but you only need a tiny dab each washing, so the product lasts forever.

                Cleanser has a great light fresh scent, leaves skin feeling clean but not dried out. I alternate with Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit to manage breakouts while balancing moisture. Easily removes make up including mascara. The only reason I don't use it more is because I don't like splashing water all over to rinse at the sink -much easier to use in the shower.
