I love this face wash, I've always had oily skin and got used to using a harsh cleanser that would strip my skin, and when I tried non- drying ones I felt like it left a film on my face. But after decades of trying different drug store brands, this is great. No matter the season or how my skin is acting, oily or dry this leaves it feeling great! Not dry. Not filmy, just clean! It takes everything off without scrubbing. No need to try anything else!

philosopy's purity smells great. It is fresh and floral, without being overwhelmingly fruity or sweet - smelling. My skin feels clean without feeling stripped of moisture. I'm on my second big bottle and will continue to use this.

Greatest facial cleanser there is!

Purity facial cleanser is soft and light. It goes on very easily and gently. Leaves my face feeling fresher than any other cleanser I've ever used!

My saving grace...ya girl is back!!

As a teen I did not suffer from acne. I am now 24 and have started to suffer from hormonal acne all along my chin and jawline. I went to the doctor and was prescribed product after product after product. Then I found this face wash after reading an article online. I tried it for a week, and my acne was....gone. I still had some redness and dark spots but the bumps had subsided. This is the only facewash that is gentle enough to use with my retin-a and BP. I even found Cetaphil to be a tad harsh on my now-sensitive skin. I like this product because I don't feel as though I'm weighing my skin down with more ingredients. It's pure and simple, and smells amazing.

It's sad how a few spots on your face can strip you of your confidence, even happiness, but we all know it's true. This face wash has changed my life.

My SIgnature Cleanser

This is a perfect cleanser for me. It does a great job of removing makeup, and it makes my skin feel clean without feeling tight or too dry. I have sensitive skin and it helps with redness and itchiness. 16 oz bottle lasts about a year (I have a pump on the bottle, so one pump is enough) so it is cost effective. The wipes are a great companion as well!
