philosophy purity made simple facial cleanser 16oz.


What is it: A deep-cleaning but gentle 4-in-1 emulsion that removes every trace of makeup, dirt, oil, and debris in one step.

Who is it for: Anyone shopping for the cleanest and best skin of his or her life.

Why is it different: philosophy knows that when a cleanser is well formulated, there is no reason for the second step of toning. The deep-cleansing agent in this fragrance-free formula acts as a remover, cleanser, toner, and light hydrator, all in one easy step.

How do I use it: Apply to a dry or slightly damp face. Massage for 30 to 60 seconds. Rinse thoroughly.

From philosophy.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 992 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection! I have rosacea. It is very safe with my skin's tender condition. Cleanses well leaves my skin feeling refreshed. My skin looks healthy. 06-23-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Best for young people Since I am a senior, I would prefer a facial cleanser with more hydration. This didn't have it. Yes, it was very clean with no scent but it would be better for a young person with oil on their skin. It was too strong and lacked the smoothness of hydrated skin. I would also prefer some sort of scent - even a little would have been better. People who need softness and hydration should look elsewhere. I do, however, like Philosophy's Lemon Custard body cream. Smells wonderful and is very hydrating. 05-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by My First Philosophy Purchase This is my first purchase from philosophy. I find it to leave my face soft & not feeling stripped of moisture It also is able to cut through makeup while remaining gentle on my skin. I haven't been using it for long, but it seems as if it will last awhile. Enjoying my switch from another brand. 04-24-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best I first tried this about ten years ago. I remember liking it. But, I love to try new products, so off I went.....for ten years. My skin is changing in a few but significant ways. Thank goodness I tried Purity again. It is the best cleanser on the market. It has resolved my issues, then continued on to just be wonderful. I like the light fragrance, the texture, the way it feels on my skin, its makeup-removal properties, the way my skin feels afterwards. I watched Dara Lyn last week and there is something she said that is so basic and so true....that you will discover your true skin type when you use Purity. I finally have. I'm sticking to Purity for once and for all time! 04-22-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's Great For Your Skin And Your Pocket Book I've been using Purity for about 12 years. It's the only face cleaner that I'm not allergic to. I use Purity twice a day. It does not dry your skin out. It's a great for your skin and your pocket book. 04-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great For Clear And Healthy Skin I love the scent and this product really keeps my skin looking very healthy!!! I have used many products over the years and this is one of my favorites! Your face will feel very fresh & clean with a nice scent!! Follow with Josie Maran Aragon Oil and your face will be flawless!!! 01-13-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Purchase Ever I started using this product and I am very happy with the results. I used cheaper brand name from stores, and they made my face break out in pimples. Ever since I started using this cleanser I have been pimple free. It's so great. I was surprised and very excited with the results. I actually told my face looks better. 01-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous This is by far the best facial cleanser I have ever used. It leaves my skin soft and smooth. I use it with my Clarisonic most of the time, but have also used it just with my hands. Either way, my skin feels wonderful. I highly recommend this facial cleanser. 12-06-15
