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)

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).

    I use every day. Removes even the toughest eye makeup without burning eyes. Does not dry out your skin. Can be used with clarisonic. A must try and you will be hooked.

          This product leaves skin very smooth. It is not greasy or overdrying. I have oily skin and my husband has dry skin. We both use it every morning/evening. Would be perfect if it was natural, but anyway I will be buying again.

          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.

                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.
