I really wanted to like this product because everyone raves so much about the line. Unfortunately, it just wasn't right for me. The texture of the cleanser felt odd to me, and while my face did feel fairly clean after I used it, it also felt very dry and tight. I wouldn't buy this for myself.

I'm pretty particular about what items I use to wash my face, and I had high hopes for this product. Unfortunately it left my skin feeling overly dry and tacky to the touch. Definitely NOT what I want to go to bed feeling like. Not for me, but I'm still going to try other products from Philosophy!

I really liked how creamy and luxurious it felt. My skin is just too oily though. I think it would be perfect for dry, normal, or even just less oily skin. Nice light smell though!

The facial cleanser reminded me of washing my face with hand soap. But maybe it's bc I'm used to using Kiehl's Facial Cleanser which is more creamy than soapy texture.

I really like the Philosophy brand. This product is nice, but it dries out my skin (face). So, I am going to use it as a body wash.

Like the scent

This product is clean and simple. In the winter it leaves me a bit dry. In the summer it is one of my go tos.

good basic cleanser

Good basic cleanser but leaves my skin feeling a little dry after using. Also for the price I think there are brands that give you more bang for the buck and perhaps do not leave that tight feeling. Still a decent choice for an all around cleanser, removes makeup well except for waterproof mascara.

Pretty good

I like this product fairly well, however its not by any means perfect. It gets my makeup off wonderfully, but I use this along with other purity products because this alone is not enough for my skin as far as acne goes.

i like the creaminess of the wash, and i think the formula works well with my skin. it feels good and not too dry afterwards. but i have an oily complexion, so really only feel i get a good cleanse with scrubs and some exfoliation. not a bad product, just not for me.

While I liked the fragrance and the product did its job, I prefer a cleanser that makes your skin feel tighter and smooth after using. This one, meh. I usually use Neutrogena's Deep Clean which is a cream cleanser as well. Deep Clean has an okay scent, but it gives a nice tingle to your skin and frankly does a better job for my money.
