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 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.

        This face wash takes care of everything. Cleans your whole face, eye make-up too! It just melts every bit of goo off, and you are left with a clean face, never dry nor greasy, perfect balance.

          I use this product daily and am very pleased. I appreciate the lack of perfumy odor. I always buy it on sale as it can be pricey. I do use a toner, then moisterizer after cleansing. The Philosophy toner, however, is a major disappointment.

                This is a perfect cleanser .It's mild, deep cleansing, removes make up well, and even mascara !
                But with the trend of natural stuff going on currently , I wish it had no Parabens or Phthalates in it's ingredients. The ingredients do have some good stuff but it is also loaded with some strong chemicals...
                If one doesn't care much about natural ingredients and just care for a good cleanser, it's for you !

                  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.
