An effective, GENTLE cleanser!

I bought a sample size of this product after reading reviews on Birchbox and was not expecting amazing results. I have sensitive, combination skin that I struggled to find a balanced cleanser for. Though it does not foam like other washes I have used, this cleanser removes every trace of makeup at the end of the day. I do not need to use as much product as they instruct, but I do feel like I am using more than my other washes. This only bothered me at first because the results were absolutely incredible. It actually cleared my acne without feeling like it was damaging my skin. I love the smell, soft and pretty. My face is less red and becoming brighter and more even-toned. I can finally say I am no longer looking for the perfect cleanser! I will not purchase anything but this. Absolutely addicted (:

its a skin saver

I've used philosophy for years, and have been in love with the gel version of this cleanser for pretty much my entire adult life. (why don't you care this BB???) My skin has gone nuts as a result of age and medication and this has been a god send. It's a really soothing wash and never irritates my poor skin, which sometimes sports out and out burns from medication reactions. My skin is softer and more hydrated now than ever before. I will say I like this better in the shower than washing in the sink - like most non foaming cleansers, it seems to do its best work when you can give it lots of rinse time.

Amazing cleanser.
Purchased

This was a recommendation from Juliette on the Birchbox team for my sensitive, dry skin. I have tried many cleansers, but everything makes my skin break out. This Philosophy cleanser is perfect for. It's gentle enough that it doesn't make my skin break out, but it's tough enough to remove stubborn make up. Highly recommended for sensitive skin.

Horrible

I got this product as a sample in my birchbox subscription. I have never used anything related to this brand before but it seemed really popular so I decided to give it a try. It was a let down, to say the least.

The first thing I noticed was the rancid smell it had. It didn't smell fresh or clean but I pushed through and thought maybe the results were what gave it such a following. It left an oily film on my face after washing thoroughly and did not leave me feeling clean or refreshed at all. I had to wash my face twice with another cleanser in order to get the film off.

I do not know how they call this a cleanser. I would not use it again or recommend it to anyone.

Didn't work for me

Did not work with my skin. It just wasn't a strong enough product for my skin but that's not surprising since I have really bad skin. If your face is not bad I would recommend you trying it though.

Average Cleanser

Purity is a very average cleanser. It didn't do anything amazing for my skin, nor did it irritate it or break me out. If you're looking for a basic cleanser with a slight lather, this is it.

BEST FACE WASH EVER!

This stuff is heaven on earth! So gentle but still strong enough to get all the dirt and make up off. Works perfectly with my clarisonic!
