Faithful Purity User!

I've been using this face wash for close to two years now, and it has changed my skin care regimen! It really does take off your day, but is not over-drying at all. I use it in the morning and every evening. My face never feels tight after using it, it has the right amount of cleanser and moisturizing benefits.

The best cleanser
Purchased

I have tried almost every single face wash out there, from high end to drugstore, and this is the only cleanser that REALLY cleans off all the dirt and day from my face. I pair the cleanser with my clarisonic and it works miracles. My skin is literally addicted to this product to the point that when I try a new product for a few days, my face starts to break out. If you are having trouble finding a cleanser that keeps your breakouts at bay, please consider this one. You will not regret it.

LOVE
Purchased

Love, love, love this stuff. It is now a staple in my skincare routine. Nothing too fancy about it, but it does its job and is great at cleaning my skin and taking off ALL of my makeup without stripping my skin of all its moisture. Highly recommend!

Great Product

This is a great facial cleanser for sensitive skin. It does tend to leave some makeup on my face so I have to wash my face with something else first.

Didnt work for me

I have breakout-prone skin, and this cleanser made me break out more! I was really hopeful because it works well for so many people I know, but for me it backfired! I would be careful and try a sample first before buying it full sized if you have breakout prone skin!

Favorite Cleanser

I absolutely love Philosophy products, but the purity made simple cleanser it by far my favorite. This cleanser is a make-up remover/face cleanser all in one. It's tough enough to remove my waterproof mascara, yet gentle enough to use everyday. I use this both at morning and night.

Perfect for sensitive skin

I have extremely sensitive skin and this is one of only a handful of cleansers that not only cleans my skin but also does not dry it out too much. The entire philosophy line is great as well.

Gentle yet strong enough to remove makeup

I've been using this for over 5 years. It's gentle, doesn't cause breakouts, and removes makeup - including mascara. I will use this until the company goes out of business or I die - whichever comes first.

Only makeup remove I use

This is the only makeup remove I have used in four years!
It gets all of my makeup off - eyeliner, mascara, cheek stains everything!
The one thing I don't like about it is if I apply it to a dry face (which I've done on nights where I'm just exhausted and forget to splash some water on my face first) it will break me out.
But as long as I splash water on my face this stuff is the best!
