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:

    Love Philosophy products in general. Especially love Purity Made Simple for the following reasons:
    1) You only need to use a very, very small amount (dime size, quarter size is way too much).
    2) It smells lovely; clean and nurturing.
    3) It works excellent on my sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin (I am in my early thirties)
    4) Leave skin just a tad moisturized, enough that I don't need to add additional moisturizer to my skin if I don't want to.
    5) Cleans off all make-up, waterproof mascara and others I use.
    6) Cleans pores; my skin feels like it can breath when I remove my make-up with Purity Made Simple.

    Love everything about it.

      I use everyday and have recommended to everyone (including men) I know. I tried other cleansers and makeup removers and none can compare. If you've never tried this, you have no idea what you've been missing.

        I like that this removes my makeup and cleans my face at the same time. I'm all for fewer steps in the get-ready-for-bed routine!

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

          No cleanser comes close to this one. It is very gentle and will not strip your skin of its natural oils. It also removes makeup effortlessly without irritating my eyes. It has a nice, clean scent. I would recommend buying the 16 oz. bottle or larger if you plan on using it on a daily basis. If you like a serious lather in a cleanser, this is not for you. Since it is such a gentle formula it does not lather. If you have acne-prone skin, this will help with irritation and redness. I recommend this cleanser to everyone!

                  Wow, I am impressed. I thought I was using the very best performing beauty brands. I had been using that inexpensive face wash recommended by all the beauty magazines in my effort to offset the cost of the more expensive moisturizers and serums. I received a free sample of Purity Made Simple and in the spring purchased a large bottle. This daily face cleanser is three times more effective than the less expensive brand, requires 1/3 the product per use, smells 100 times better and the packaging looks 200 times better in my bathroom. Great product.

                      I'm a skeptic at heart, so I thought that nothing could be as good as the ratings were for this product, but I was, ah...wrong! I found it to be every bit as good as the ratings and surpisingly better than I anticipated. It gently cleanses and leaves my face feeling amazingly clean and soft. I'm 62 years old and thought my face was beyond help, but not so. I love it so much that I've purchased it for all the women in my family for their birthdays, and also have the men in the house using it as well. It took me about 5 years to finally decide to buy it, because of the cost, but a little goes a very long ways. I use it with my Nutra Sonic facial system and I Just simply love it.
