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!

LOVE
Purchased

I have very sensitive and acne-prone skin, and my prescription Retin-A can make it tough to find a face wash that removes makeup without killing my skin.

This is definitely it!! Smells great, not too drying, removes basically all makeup.

Perfect for nighttime before bed (I still prefer Phisoderm first thing in the morning).

Temperamental skin

I have very temperamental skin, I can break out from the littlest thing. I switched to this about 9 months ago and have noticed such a great improvement in my skin. I have less breakouts and my skin looks so much more vibrant.

Very Hydrating

I love everything about this product! It smells lovely! You do not need a lot, just about the size of a dime to clean your whole face. It removes all of my makeup including mascara without over drying my face. If it wasn't for needing SPF I wouldn't need to put on a face moisturizer at all! So I use a very lightweight lotion otherwise my face would be too moisturized and shiny!

Nice deep cleanser

This cleanser foams nicely, cleanses deeply, and leaves skin feel very fresh. It is great to use at the end of the day to remove make-up and deeply cleanse. I did not find this cleanser hydrating, though, and prefer something more moisturizing for my dry skin.

Great cleanser
Purchased

I have been using this cleanser for a couple of years now. It is my favorite cleanser ever. I have sensitive skin, and it is very gentle with a light scent.
