This is not the cleanser for me. I feel like it never really cleaned my face. I use make up everyday, as in primer, liquid foundation, bronzer, blush, and setting powder.

Just something that is not for me.

Not Bad, Not Great.
Purchased

This cleanser did not make my breakouts any better. However, It did not make them worse either. I was disappointed because I had heard wonderful reviews on this and I was not very impressed. Especially for the price.

not for dry skin
Purchased

I really wanted to like this, after all of the hype I've heard. But it made my skin feel tight. After using for about two weeks, I gave up. Ended up giving it away to a friend.

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 :(

I have adult acne and during the winter my face does dry up in some areas. I thoght this cleanser would help, but It really did'nt do anything great for my face.

Very gentle

This is a great, gentle cleanser. For me, it felt a little too gentle and I wasn't sure it was effective combating my summertime acne. I love using it in the winter though, when I'm not dealing with flare-ups. It pairs great with a Clarisonic.

Not sure what the hype is about this face wash. I gave it 3 stars because its affordable and its a pretty big size. The only reason Im not crazy about it is because it did not help with my break outs.
