smells bad, burns eyes, tastes bad
Purchased

I had heard a lot of great things about this, but was very disappointed. I don't like the smell (smells like lemon wet wipes) it burned when it got near my eyes and it tastes really bad if it gets anywhere near your mouth. (When I'm washing my face, my cleanser is going to get near my mouth. I haven't had any other cleanser I've used leave a bad taste in my mouth.) It also made me break out.

Not much of a fan

It done a great job cleaning and removing makeup and didn't irritate my eyes but I hated the way it left my face feeling. It felt tight and a little drying. I would prefer Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser.

Must have!

I actually got this as a gift from my cousin and it's amazing! I usually use such harsh cleansers because my face is so oily but this is gentle and it works! I've never been able to say that about a cleansed before!
On average I'd get between 4-7 new pimples a week and since using this product I'm now down to just 1!

The best

I've used tons of face cleansers and I have to say this one is my favorite by far. It makes your face feel great and doubles as a makeup remover. It's a little pricy but completely worth it. It's great to pair with a Clarisonic, too.

Fantastic product.

Love this product. The scent isn't overwhelming and it cleanses so well. Philosophy products are the best! The packaging is cute too.

I love, love, love this cleanser! It makes my face feel clean, smooth and removes eyeliner and mascara without burning my eyes. It doesn't break me out or dry me out. If you are looking for a gentle, non drying cleanser for acne prone skin this works great.

This product does exactly what it says it does. I would use it at night to take off the rest of the make up that my make up remover left behind. I just hope it was more soapy.... I just love bubbles.

The BEST.

I've tried dozens of different cleansers and none have even touched this product. Purity leaves my skin clean, smooth, and hydrated. I recommend the entire philosophy line.
