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.

Heavenly but try the gel product first!
Purchased

Heavenly scent. The gel product for me lasted a bit longer (nice given the higher price point of this item) but overall this is a great find.

nice
Purchased

I LOVE Philosophy products and I like this face wash but I am not in love with it. I was hoping for a great smell too like the other products but that was only ok too.

Used to like more
Purchased

When I first started using this product I thought it was great, but after using it for awhile I noticed it started breaking me out. I think that it's better for dryer skin or during the wintertime.

Nice, refreshing cleanser

I have dry, sensitive skin, and this cleanser did not strip my face of any natural oils. It has a nice, refreshing scent. It feels good and lathers well in the shower.

Clean and gentle
Purchased

I bought this because I'm pregnant and can't use anything with acne s. acid or b. peroxide. I don't have bad acne but do breakout occasionally. Combined with pregnancy breakouts I wanted something effective. This was recommended on what to expect. It fits the bill. My face feels super clean and my breakouts have gotten better.

Best face wash for the money

This face wash is amazing. It does so many things for my skin at the same time, and it lasts longer than other facial cleansers I have used. It makes my skin soft, glowy, and also removes makeup in one easy step. I have very sensitive skin and this face wash is one of the few that I can use and have zero problems with. I also have problems with acne, and this particular face wash seemed to have an anti-inflammatory effect for me. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is just because it is a little on the pricey side. However, I do think it is worth the splurge, because I have had to throw countless cheap facial cleansers away after I had an allergic reaction to them. I am a Philosophy fan for life!

Easy morning wash

I took this sample with me to my morning showers at the gym. I wanted a light facewash that makes me feel clean and refreshed after working out, and this does just that! It lathers well, and it's very light on the skin, but makes you feel sqeakly clean when you are done! I would order this when I finish my Birchbox sample.

simple clean feeling!

I received this sample in one of my boxes, turned out to be great! One step for sure, made the skincare routine much easier and a lot less steps. My face was left clean and fresh!

Nice fresh face

I like how this face wash leaves me skin feeling clean but not too dried out. It helped wash away my makeup and the oil.
