Smells like Pine Sol
Purchased

I really wanted to love this product. I've only used it a couple of times and it seems to work well and not irritate my skin. However, I can't stand the Pine Sol smell! It's technically "fragrance free," but I'd rather use a product with fragrance than one that smells like this!

Just ok

I am a fan of Philosophy products, but I am not a major fan girl when it comes to Purity. I found that it worked great when I was washing my face after a day of no makeup, but it does not leave my skin feeling fresh and free of makeup... I do not cake on my makeup either, but maybe it's because I use waterproof eyeliner. I would still end up looking like Ozzy Osbourne after washing my face--it does not remove my eye makeup entirely. I still have to use makeup remover on my eyes before and sometimes prior.

Not a Fan

I'm not a fan of this product. I hate the smell and the way it makes my skin feel. It would leave my skin really dry and it felt like all the natural good oils had been stripped away. Would not repurchase.

Didn't work for me

Ok so I must be the exception here but this product made me break out so badly. I have sensitive skin and thought this product would be great for that but it just made my skin go crazy. Really disappointed :(

won't buy again
Purchased

This didn't hurt or help my skin. I would not choose to buy again. I was expecting my skin to be soft but it left a residue.

Really liked this face wash. Fantastic smell, removed make-up just OK- sometimes I'm lazy and don't use makeup remover first so I like a cleanser that is more foamy and removes all make up. This wasn't that for me, but I still really liked it.

doesn't do much good for my skin but it doesn't do much bad either. actually makes my skin very soft but it will not be enough to prevent the occasional breakout.

Not understanding the cult following...
Purchased

Purity is a great facial cleanser. It removes makeup well, leaves my face feeling and smelling fresh and moisturizes pretty deeply. I really enjoy using it (especially with my Clarisonic Mia!) but I have to say I don't understand the legions of people that obsess over it! I have great facial cleansers that have similar effects that I have purchased at the drugstore for less than half the price. It was a great product to try but I'm not sure that I would purchase it again.

Just ok

I really wanted to love this product, but it's just ok. I use it with my Clarisonic and it works well without overly drying. I was disappointed by the ingredient list though since it contains parabens, despite the "purity" name.
