Rated 5 out of 5 by RMMinst PERFECT for MEN or WOMEN...
i'm fairly certain that this review will be read by more women than men, so i'd like to share a man's perspective on these two AMAZING products...
I am an African-American man who is rapidly approaching 40, and I have used both these products for the past 15 years. NO OTHER SKINCARE PRODUCT has done for me what these two products have done.
before I was introduced to purity made simple and hope in a jar by my wife (girlfriend at the time), my skin was blotchy, oily, and acne-prone, though I was in my early 20's. now, my skin is perfectly smooth and even, and i am certain that these products have helped (along with age, i'm sure...) to significantly reduce the oiliness and breakouts that used to drive me CRAZY.
if only these products existed when I was a teenager...
I even use purity made simple when I shave; it works SO MUCH better than any shaving cream or gel I have tried. it leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft, helps me get a closer shave, reduces razor burn and ingrown hairs (a BIG skincare issue for African-American men), and helps prevent nicks and cuts. it is so slippery smooth, the razor glides over it. and, in my opinion, there's NO better after-shave lotion or moisturizer than hope in a jar; it doesn't burn or dry my skin out like alcohol-based aftershaves or lotions tend to, prevents my face from becoming a post-shave oil slick, and has DRAMATICALLY helped to reduce the amount of ingrown hairs I experience.
BEST OF ALL, unlike a lot of skincare products on the market, these two products have a NEUTRAL scent, so you won't walk away smelling like a fruit salad or a flower shop. if you're someone like me who is VERY sensitive to smells, you will definitely appreciate these products.
so, ladies... though you may be considering these products for yourself, consider buying them for your husbands, boyfriends, or teenage sons... I PROMISE you that they will thank you after just one use.

I ordered this set a while back (Oct. 2014) I think. I just love the Purity made Simple. I have not had a single problem with it at all. I also like the Hope in a jar but have switched to a more nourishing moisturizer as the Hope in a Jar left my skin still feeling dry. Don't get me wrong it is a wonderful light weight moisturizer but I also have very dry skin and needed "more".
I am looking into ordering the Purity Made Simple and the Purity Mask duo on my next order. I would love to try the mask. All in all I would say do not hesitate to purchase this set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ravenblue very impressed
I have mediterranean skin and it cleanses and smoothes my skin. I am very happy with it and I would order again. It help heal the crustiness around my husbands nose and he was excited about that and made sure I did order the product.

Wow! I have debated over ordering this , finally did and I love this!!! I noticed a difference right away, this is the best cleanser and moisturizer I have ever used.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gina 125 I LOVE PURITY AND HOPE IN A JAR
I am an African American female, in my 40's with very oily skin who has searched for years to find products that were right for my skin. I LOVE Philosophy! My skin has NEVER felt so clean and beautiful, no more oil and no more breakout. The Hope In a Jar gives my skin just the perfect amount of moisture without the greasy feeling, yet it is so gentle, even my pre-teen daughter uses the products now. Thanks Philosophy and QVC for bringing this product to me at a great price!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Linda1147 Very drying duo
I had hoped that these items would be as wonderful as claimed. The Purity cleanser leaves the skin feeling dry though I liked the idea that a toner isn't necessary. Hope in a Jar doesn't moisturize the skin at all. It's not creamy as you'd expect a moisturizer to be, so I had to pat it on my skin. I will keep the set but use it in the warmer months or occasionally use the Purity with my Clarisonic. So disappointed in 'philosophy'. I do prefer using Josie Maran's skin care in comparison as her products are much more natural & definitely not drying - FYI!
Rated 5 out of 5 by religious best yet for my face
I have used this product for several years now and would not prefer any other. It's great for my face and I always get compliments on how smooth and pretty my skin appears.
