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).

    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.

    Have been using this for a very long time. It is the only cleanser I've ever found that absolutely does not sting my eyes. That was the biggie for me. Looked forever. I love this stuff!

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

    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.

        I use this to remove my Laura Geller face make-up. Leaves my skin clean, soft and not greasy. No lingering smell. The only thing it doesn't remove is waterproof eye mascara. I have to use a different product for that.
