I found it really mild. I use it in the morning, but definitely need something stronger to take off makeup or any residue.

I've actually tried this before but I decided to give it another go since it came in the box. It really doesn't do anything for my skin. I still get small bumps all over my forehead. This is probably great for people with minimal skin problems.

I tried to love this so much and just couldn't! I know it's a cult favorite and despite the claims that it leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated I felt like it left my skin stripped of anything good. Wanted to love it, just didn't :-/ BUT I'm thankful for trying it because it's been on my "list" for a while :)

Simple cleanser, but not something that impressed me over drug store brands

I already had a sample size of this cleanser that I got in my QVC Beauty Tube. I don't like to use products with sulfates on my skin, so I mainly use this cleanser to clean my makeup brushes.

I dont understand what this product is meant to do. It says 3 in 1 but all it did was kind of clean my face, there was no lather and i dont see why you need to massage it in for 60 seconds, waste of time, let down of a product.

Sampled

I know Philosophy is a VERY popular brand, but I just can't seem to understand the fervor. This cleanser is "eh" as far as I'm concerned. Does not remove all of my makeup, does not leave my face feeling clean & is not really formulated for my oily/combination skin despite claiming to be for all skin types. Sorry, Philosophy -- just not a big fan.

I didn't use this product to tell teh truth, I read the ingredients and they are ingredients that irritate my skin so I skipped it. But it did smell nice if that means anything.

It didnt take all my makeup off, which it says that it would. I tried it with my makeup already off as well and it just didnt make my face feel smooth and clean.

I'm sure this product cleans well; I'm just a fan of sudsy/foamy cleansers.
