I usually use a cleanser with a salicylic acid wash due to acne, but this is a great gentle wash, and it cleanses really well. I can skip my other wash and use this no problems! It's great!

It may not be good for every day since I have such acne prone skin, but I love it on those days when my skin needs a little more tlc.

This is the only the second Philosophy product I've ever tried. I would have to use it a little longer to say what type of long term effect it has on my skin, but I tried it today and thought it was a nice facial cleanser. It left the skin on my face feeling refreshed, cleansed and soft. Normally when I use a facial cleanser and still have makeup on my face, I can see mascara on the towel when i dry my face. I feel like most cleansers don't thoroughly cleanse my skin the way they claim to. The Purity seemed to do the job. It was gentle but cleansed my skin enough that I saw no makeup residue when I dried off my face. Overall, I liked the product and would consider possibly buying it in the future.

I LOVE purity made simple. This has been a staple in my facial routine since I discovered the philosophy brand. Absolutely love this cleanser because it is a cleanser, toner, and makeup remover all in one. This is also a perfect cleanser to help prevent my occasional hormonal breakouts, etc. GREAT cleanser, I cannot live without it!

Gentle yet does a great job of removing makeup. Great for combination/dry skin.

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

Like other products from philosophy, I find that Purity almost works for me, but ultimately doesn't. It lathers and cleanses well, and feels nice on the face, but it dries my skin out like crazy. For people who tend towards an oiler complexion it might be better, but it definitely isn't for my dry skin.

I cannot say enough great things about this cleanser. First of all, it has a GREAT scent. I feel like it smells slightly like fruit loops, and that definitely makes me smile. This cleanser definitely gives me a feeling that my skin is really clean--it takes off my makeup very well. Also, it leaves my skin feeling very soft! Hoping to get this product soon.
