Favorite cleanser on the market!!

I was introduced to this product at Ulta a few years ago. I was a little turned off by the price (I didn't yet understand the value in purchasing higher end products) but they assured me it was well worth the price. They were right! I love this stuff so much and a bottle lasts FOREVER! I use it 2-3 times a week and an 8 oz bottle lasted me almost a year. The beads that are in it are smooth round beads so they don't scratch and feel as harsh as other exfoliators. You also don't have to worry about it drying your skin. After use you feel smooth and refreshed and I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone! As long as they keep making this product, it will be apart of my skincare routine =]

nice and gentle

I got this wash from another source, but wanted to tell you all how much I liked it. I have fair, combination (from dry to oily) skin that I have a hard time balancing. Between all my lotions and potions, and all the daily makeup wear I find that I need to exfoliate at least once a week or more to keep my skin looking soft and supple. This wash does a fabulous job of keeping my skin in fresh condition. It is gentle, which is a plus for me bc my skin can become irritated very easily. It does not strip or leave my skin oily. I am left with fresh, comfortable skin that is gives me smooth makeup application. I am so glad I made this purchase and you will be too.

I Love This Product

My friend recommended it too me because my face was usually really oily and I had a lot of breakouts. This product helped deal with my oil while leaving my face feeling moisturized and clean. It is expensive but it is this way for a reason!

Awesome product

I love Philosophy products. The best part about this face wash is that you only need about a dime size because a little goes a long way. I find that if I'm struggling with my face ( meaning dealing with redness or constant bumps that just won't go away) if I use this, within 2 days any blemishes are dried up and gone!

Adore this stuff!

This product is AMAZING! My 30-something daughter loaned me her bottle so I would give it a try. After just one use I was hooked! I bought my own bottle. After using it once a day for a week my skin shows marked improvement. The pores on my nose have never looked better and the dry patches on my cheeks are gone and my skin is smoother and softer. The fine lines around my eyes look smoother, and between this product and my dark spot corrector (been using that for months now) the pair of age spots I was sporting are almost gone. My husband grabbed it and gave it a go and now he uses it all the time, too. Recommended it to a friend who is now hooked, too.
