philosophy purity made simple cleanser 8 oz.
I received this in an auto delivery shipment of the TSV last winter along with several other Philosophy products. I gave a 3in1 shower gel and the Purity cleanser away as a Christmas gift, and kept the rest for myself. I was pleased with everything I kept including the Micro-Delivery cleanser. When the 2nd shipment arrived, I put the Purity away to use after I finished my normal cleanser. I should state that I have normal to combination skin, and only break out at that time of the month.Upon opening the bottle, my first thought was "Peeuu! This stuff stinks like bug spray!" (However this was also my first though went I opened the Hope in a Jar cream, as well)
I have used this cleanser a few times a week for a couple of months now, and while it doesn't make my skin break out, it dries it out so much that my eye cream, the Hope in a Jar and sunscreen doesn't take away the tight feeling my skin has. I live in MN where its very dry in the winter, and very hot and humid in the summer time, and usually only use sunscreen in the summer. I will have to go back to my normal skin care. Its a shame too, because I LOVE the 3in1 shower gels and use them exclusively for myself and my children. An off brand drugstore cleanser will work just as well, and smell a lot better than the Purity, and will most likely be less drying to the skin as well. I am sorry I gave this as a gift.
Best Product Ever
I have used multiple cleansers over the years but none have left my skin feeling as good as Purity. I bought a trial size a couple years ago and fell in love. My skin gets so clean and feels so soft and I'm amazed every time. I simply love this product and would never use anything else on my skin again.
Amazing All-In-One Cleanser
Purity has become my all-time favorite cleanser! I use to use an eye-makeup remover that left my skin (and sometimes my contacts) oily, then a facial cleanser that left my skin feeling tight, and then a toner that seemed to do absolutely nothing. Since I discovered Purity, I've thrown out everything else. This is all you need. It washes away all my makeup (even the bulletproof stuff) and leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean and refreshed. I actually look forward to washing my face at the end of the day! LOVE!!
Caused my skin to breakout
After reading so many positive reviews, I wanted to try this product. It's nice to have a cleanser that takes eye makeup and mascara off well, but after using the product for only a few days, my skin has broken out everywhere! The scent is also not very pleasing, smells just like citronella candles to me. I'll have to send this back.
I use Purity cleanser with my Clarisonic and I love how my skin feels after cleaning. It does not feel tight or dry and just seems to glow. Do not hesitate ordering this product!
Fabulous Wash, But Bad Packaging
I love this face wash. It is simple, refreshing, and clean. It removes makeup nicely - especially waterproof mascara! However, because I have arthritis, the bottle becomes too difficult to squeeze once the product gets low. Please make the packaging arthritis-friendly and you'll get five stars from me!
I treated myself to this for Christmas. True, it does remove your makeup, but does not remove mascara 100%. I was disappointed, as that is one of the reasons I bought this. Also, it states in the directions to avoid direct contact with eyes, so this concerns me, as the presentation does not focus on this and is a bit misleading. I recommend the product for makeup removal, but not for eye makeup removal.
Thank you Sooo Much
I finally found a facial cleanser that doesn't irratite my skin. I've tried other name bands that irratited my skin and thought that was something that I had to live with unit I tried Purity made simple. My skin is softer, brighter,even skin tone and the redness and dryness has gone away. I even had my neighber comment on how good my complexion and skin looks and asked me what I was using, so I told her about Purity. And it last such a long time. I purchase the 8 oz size first just to try and after almost 6 weeks of use, I'm still using the 8 oz bottle. I'm almost out of it, so lucky, I've already order the 32 oz duo size of the Purity. One I'm keeping and the is a Christmas present.. Thank you.
It's a Keeper !
I got a small 1 oz sample of this and have used it all up. I'm back for the bigger bottle. Love it! I have sensitive dry skin and this doesn't dry me out.
Love Love Love this product. I switched to something else a few months ago. What a mistake that was. Love this makeup remover. Please Do not 'Improve" this makeup remover. Perfect the way it is.
Thank you philosophy.
My aunt gave me this to try and I absolutely LOVE it! I will never use anything else! It does everything described, and you can clean your whole face because it is safe and gentle, so it won't hurt your eyes. A must-have for any woman.
I Like It
A friend gifted me with Purity Made Simple. I've stayed away from Philosophy because I think it is overpriced. However, I've tried a number of other cleansers and they have dried and made my skin flakey. This does not. In addition, my friend gave me a small jar of Hope In A Jar, and i like that too. I've read the reviews of both products and my conclusion is that we are all different and have different skin care needs. i still think Philosophy is too expensive and with shipping, Wow. And i don't care to purchase "kits" that include products that i won't use. However I do like Purity and Hope, and if I save my pennys, I might purchase it at another time.
