I've been using the Philosophy line since February...and I love it. I'm 29 years old and have combination/doesn't know what the heck it wants to do type skin. This is the only stuff out there that I can say I will buy again. Everything I've tried before was a one-time purchase.

Purity Made Simple is a beauty staple. Once you try it, you won't want to use anything else!

You might have noticed a few negative reviews...to those who say that it doesn't take off makeup, isn't leaving skin clean, or isn't giving them the results they are looking for: Follow the directions on the bottle. MASSAGE it into your skin with your fingers for 45-60 seconds and RINSE WELL. For the first couple of weeks I used purity, I did my typical scrub-and-rinse-in-20-seconds regimen. It was only when I started taking the time to massage the product into my skin that I began to get amazing results.

I have combination skin with occasional mild adult acne. I've tried EVERYTHING (including Arbonne and Pro-Active...both a waste of money and wrought havoc upon my skin). The acne is almost non-existent thanks to the Philosophy line and looks better every day. My "time of the month" this month amounted to a total of two very small pimples...a huge change from the painful breakouts I had before. My pores are smaller, skin smoother, and I hardly have to put on any makeup at all (I use the Bare Minerals line of makeup).

So, here's my skincare regimen: Wash with Purity Made Simple, moisturize with Hope in a Jar, a little dab of Hope in a Tube around the eyes, and put on the makeup for the day. Once a week I use the Microdelivery Scrub for a quick exfoliation.

Do yourself a favor: Try it. :o)

Doesn't remove makeup well

Based on reviews, I tried this product. It doesn't work-- when I use a toner right after I've washed my face with this product, I still see plenty of makeup come off. It is ineffective at removing makeup, but okay as a regular cleanser, although I prefer Skin MIlk foaming face wash (which I can no longer find).

Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 16 oz:

Place a nice amount on the palm of your hands
and spread liquid to your face evenly. Then wipe with damp cloth and watch all the makeup disapear.
Then wash face and the smoothness tells it all and clean feeling.

        Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 16 oz:

        This product removes all my makeup, including mascara. The drawback for me is it does leave my skin dry after use. However, my skin feels clean. I guess that is what moisturizer is for. When I use creamier based cleansing products my face does not feel clean.

          I have used this cleanser for many years! It is the only one I'll use and I have sensitive skin. It is fantastic. It removes all makeup gently and rinses clean. It lasts a long time too...it's concentrated.

            Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 16 oz:

            I have spent the past 6-8 months trying out various face washes from samples and trial sizes that I have received. This is by far the best I have tried and I just purchased the 32oz here. This is the only face wash that I have ever used that does not leave my skin squeaking, dried out and tight but also removes my make-up and cleanses as it should. It removes ALL of my make-up (I use it with a Clarisonic brush and even go over my eyes/lashes). Sometimes, if I am wearing a lot of make-up, I will do 2 cycles with my Clarisonic (but only one application of the cleanser). I am prone to blackheads and my pores get clogged easily, but with this product I notice a smooth, clean skin, reduced clogging of my pores, it removes all of my make-up (including stubborn waterproof mascara and long lasting liner) and it does not burn my eyes. I highly recommend this cleanser.

            This is not bad...But I felt this is just liquid soup based on its smell. if this is trure, this is not good for skin due to its basic property. I don't really like it..Not as good as what I heard from others.. I won't buy it any more.
