philosophy: we come into this world with all the right instincts. we're innocent, and; therefore, perceive things as they should be, rather than how they are. our conscience is clear, our hands clean, and the world at large is truly beautiful. to begin feeling young again, we must feel clean. to feel clean we must cleanse ourselves daily with a little soap, lots of water, and love each step of the way.

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.

philosophy purity made simple facial cleanser 16oz. is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1063.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from caused dermatitis! I received a sample of this product with a purchase. Normally I love philosophy products and they've been great for my skin. However, this product made my entire face break out. I don't have sensitive skin and I've actually used a sample of this before that didn't cause any issues, so I wonder if there was a defective batch. I noticed another reviewer said that he/she has used this product before and recently had a break-out, so I think there was a defective batch. Either way, not happy to have bumps all over my skin. Also, I'm Black, so the residual scarring is going to take months to face away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cleanser But Doesn’t Remove My Mascara This was my first Philosophy purchase. I think I will reorder as it is cleaning very well. But I do have some pros and cons: Pros: My face has never felt cleaner ever. Wow. First use and I was shocked how clean my face was. Made me realize how poor of a job my prior cleanser was doing. I also really like the unique scent. Cons: Does not remove mascara as advertised. One of the main reasons I purchased this was to replace all other facial cleansers. I must still use eye makeup remover because this product doesn’t work on my Mally Waterproof mascara. Also, product was advertised as leaving skin feeling dewy. My skin, tho cleaner than ever, feels slightly stripped and in need of moisturizer soon after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has anyone else had a reaction? I recently bought this and I am in LOVE with the way it makes my face feel. However, the past week my eyelids have broken out in some sort of red itchy rash. Anyone else have this issue? I'm hoping it's not the face wash, because I absolutely love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Runny I've used this product for years. I liked it so much, I got my daughters and granddaughter to use it as well. I always found the consistency to be thick and rich. However, the bottle I received from QVC in August is thin and runny. I can't get the product to stay on my Clarisonic brush. It's no where near the same high quality it use to be. What's happening to QVC's quality control? I'm very disappointed and won't be reordering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Another great product changed..... I have been using Purity for over 10 years. The last bottle I ordered had a very strong alcohol smell. Low and behold I checked the ingredient list with an older bottle and found a complete formula change. Without notice as well!!! Do they think we won't notice???? The new formula has so much alcohol that I wouldn't even attempt to remove my eye makeup with it....Oh well. Add it to this list of once an incredible product now changed for the worst.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be still my ❤️ This product is EVERYTHING! Removes makeup with ease, and doesn't leave my skin feeling extra dry. I have sensitive, dry skin, and I swear I hear my face thanking me after each use. I've tried MANY cleansers in the past that have all left much to be desired. I may very well NEVER AGAIN use another cleanser as long as I live! If I change to a new product, God himself would probably have to make it, hand deliver it, and personally apply it to my face! To be honest, I think He just may have had a hand in Purity's development anyway :-) . I was so pleased with it, I shipped one to my mom and cousin in Cali. I know everyone's skin composition is different, but I recommend at least trying the small travel size first. You too may begin a new facial cleanser love affair! If you are concerned about the price tag, a little goes A LONG WAY! I believe I bought a large bottle (with the pump) near the beginning of the year, and it's not yet at the halfway mark (it's mid Sept. now). I foresee it lasting well into the new year. BTW, I usually don't write reviews for items (I think this is only my 3rd review of a product EVER), but I felt I had to share. Happy facial cleansing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complection life saver! Most of my life I've been a single mother and money prevented me from splurging on skin care. So, I always settled for drugstore brands. Finally, this year I decided I was done settling for mideocre skin and products. After reading many reviews I decided Philosophy was my leap of faith for achieving a complexion I loved. Purity has literally changed my life. It's 100% hands down, the best facial wash EVER. It's convenient as it's also a makeup remover, simplified one step process. But, that's only the beginning of my new complexion journey. Literally the very first use, I noticed a firmer, brighter, more even toned and textured skin. It left my dry and dull skin feeling hydrated and not tight and dried out, simply glowing. I've expanded my Philosophy product family and I adore all of it. I never thought I would achieve a healthy, moisturized, clear and toned complexion, but Philosophy's Purity Made Simple has given my face a new life and it's one I'm so very happy with. THANK YOU.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purity: The perfect skincare for any skin, any age I struggled with "problem skin" all my life - until I found Purity by Philosophy. Cleansers all were "too" something - too irritating, too drying, too weak - my skin was too oily but too dry, not delicate at all but too easily made raw and itchy! Then I found Purity. It's perfect: It cleans, but leaves my skin soft and fresh; super clean but not dry or red. It also made me feel that I must have been allergic to a great many ingredients in other cleansers, just by the lack of itching and unaccountable redness. Purity is simple, easy and it works if I'm wearing makeup or not, summer or winter, in any climate. My skin looks great. I get compliments! Thank you so much! Really - thank you!
