as someone who has bad acne i've used everything. i was put on acutane and that helped but i still break out. i used proactive for years but i just feel like exfoliating that much everytime i wash my face probably was too much and it was very drying. i love love love this stuff. it smells natural and great and is so gentle but really cleans. love it.

I wish I had read the reviews in here before I rushed to sephora to pay 20 bucks for this. I heard all the hype about this stuff. t's not bad though. The price is not high to me. In fact, I believe it's even cheaper (per ounce) than some drugstore cleanser, and I only need a tiny bit every time of use, so the bottle should last a while. I really like how it cleanses off the last trace of my makeup, no makeup remover or toner needed. The smell may be strong to some but I like it, very energizing.So why the long face? It's seem to be too harsh for my weird used-to-be-combination-but-now-turn-to-flakey skin. Those with more oily skin may like it but not me, it dry out my skin too much. I now only use it to remove my makeup, the job that it is best for. Using it after swiping my face with some jojoba oil make it ok for my skin. But after i'm done with my bottle, I won't repurchase.

As far as my face goes it didn't do anything mind blowing. My acne didn't improve. I gave the Purity a month. It's successful as far as cleaning my face, and as I've learned from other Philosophy girls it works well to clean hairbrushes, hair(removes product build up), make up brushes. I won't be buying the giant 32 oz. size since I have a 2 oz. and it seems to really last long for all it's other uses since it didn't work out for my face. As long as I find it on eBay reasonably priced, I'll definitely buy the 2 oz. size again!

It's a little too harsh for me right now as my skin is very dry, but when I was more combo it worked great! I like how it removed all of my makeup

I got this as a sample from Sephora and I truly regret it. It has made my face break out the three separate times I tried it. Breakouts being rare for me, for some reason I couldn't believe it was the cleanser. I have pretty normal skin, not too dry or oily. Watch out!

I received a sample of this product when purchasing another Philosophy item. I'd been using harsh acne cleansers, but after I went on antibiotics to get rid of my acne, I didn't really need them much anymore. I started using this cleanser, and I really like it. I actually like the smell, and it gets all my make-up off in one pass. I only use it at night, and I follow with Philosophy's On a Clear Day retinol lotion to help clear up my acne scars. I might not buy more because it seems expensive for a facial cleanser, but once I'm out of school and not on a restrictive budget, I will probably come back to this.

I can't say I love this cleanser. It's ok for it removes my make up decently and doesn't sting my eyes. The smell and bottle design could be better for given price. Meh... Not impressed despite the hype. I'm going back to my Shiseido Gentle Foaming Cleanser.

UPDATE: Decided to give this another shot, now that I've gotten my acne somewhat under control. I started using it again two weeks ago, and I haven't broken out from it this time, which is a huge relief. My mom has tons of Purity bottles, so when I ran out of my Biore scrub, I had to rely on this for a while. It cleaned my makeup really well, but that's the only reason I gave it even 2 lippies. With regular use, I developed big, painful, inflamed zits, and I'm still recovering from the scarring. Once I stopped using it, my face started to clear up so that's how I know for sure this was the culprit. Horrible.

Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
I really like the way my skin feels after washing my face. I have oily skin and it feels clean, yet not stripped after using this. I have also not had near as many breakouts since I started using this over a year ago. I buy it from QVC because you can get a 32oz with a pump (which all sizes should come with) for only $36. At Sephora, the 24oz will cost you $40! I have recommended this to many friends and family members (w/a wide variety of skin types) and everyone loves it.

oh this is my HG cleanser for sure. This cleanser makes my skin feel SQUEAKY clean but does NOT dry me out AT ALL and has not given me a pimple since I have started using it. My skin texture feels better, my skin tone is brighter and my pores. But the best part about it is that it takes off every single trace of makeup including mascara.I think honestly though if you want a cleanser to be supercleanser and do the job of an exfoliant, cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and acne treatment then you're expecting too much. This is a great product to cleanse your skin, remove make up and leave your skin in very good condition to moisturize. If you have a lot of acne this isn't going to cure anything, you need acne medication. If you have a lot of clogged pores and skin buildup, this is not going to get rid of it. It is going to keep your skin clean and minimize it but you def do need an exfoliant or maybe glycolic acid/salycilic acid mask. Take this for what it's worth: A wonderful daily cleanser. I would say with this you're going to need a good exfoliant to use every few days and if you have acne I would suggest a salycilic acid mask. That is what I use anyway. Never using another cleanser again.
