I absolutely LOVE this cleanser :) ! I have normal-dry skin, and i was suprised this did not leave my skin feeeling tight/irritated in the least bit, as i heard here it was not the most *gentle* facewash. I bought the 16oz bottle, somehow, i had a feeling i would not regret it. Has a nice, unique fragrance (not overpowering), washes even my regular mascara off as well as the rest of my makeup, and leaves my skin smooth and clean. I can see this becoming a staple!

So far, so good with this cleanser! I had been using Clean & Clear's acne cream cleanser (with 10% BP!), but since my acne is hormonal, it wasn't really doing much to control it. (I have better luck spot-treating with DDF gel and mask, but that's another review!) So, I switched to Philosophy, thanks in part to rave reviews here on MUA. I'd tried it before and it didn't agree with my skin, but my skin has changed, so I'm giving it another go. I usually like foaming or creamy cleansers, and this is sort of in between, but it's very nice. It really does clean off all my makeup very nicely without harsh detergents, and my skin feels really soft afterwards. Yes, it feels slightly tight, but I like a squeaky-clean feeling. I also really adore the smell, it's like a woodsy-lemon scent, which I find very refreshing. I bought the smaller bottle from Sephora and intend to finish this, and if all goes well, call me converted!

Great cleanser! leaves even my dry and taught skin soft and smooth after using. And above all squeeky clean with no make up or skin care residue left on skin! For those of you who don't suffer from dry skin, you probably can't imagine how great it feels to be able to use a rinse off cleanser on a regular basis that doesn't dry you out, and be relieved from cleanser residue that is so common with cream cleansers designed for dry skin. It has a slight chemical scent, but nothing unpleasant and is very easy and quick to use, for tired nights when you just can't get into your bed fast enough, or for busy mornings. The bottle cap is a bit untight though. (Had the same problem with the former bottle, when this was called "real purity", even though that was a different bottle...). So if travelling with this baby, pour it into another container or keep it secured isolated in a ziplock. I will always keep a bottle of this stocked up at home. Don't want to be without it!

That's it, no more looking for face cleansers. I've been using this for about a week and it's everything I've been looking for in a cleanser. Gets off makeup of all kinds easily yet doesn't seem to be harsh on my skin. Definitely not drugstore price but worth every penny. I got the small, $10 bottle just to try it out, but will definitely be going back for the big momma.

This stuff is a great mystery: how does it manage to work like a paint stripper on my makeup without ripping moisture out of my skin? I adore Purity - I can actually use a lighter moisturizer because of it, and I haven't had a zit in months. Worth every penny!

The only cleanser I use on my very choosy, rather confused combo-sensitive skintype. I first tried a sample & thought "nice, feels good, works wonderfully....but what's that smell? Lemon Pledge?" Once I got used to it (and actually look forward to it in the mornings because it's a refreshing wake-me-up) I use nothing else because nothing else cleans so well but so gently, leaving my skin feeling soft and fresh, not dry or tight, no need for toner or extra rinsing afterwards, and it doesn't break me out. I almost literally glow after I use this. I like the natural ingredients and my skin hasn't looked this good in years. I'm not a huge fan of the rest of the Philosophy line, but this is the one item I always have on hand and continue to repurchase. A little pricey but worth it, especially considering all those horrid detergent-based cleansers I used to use *shudder*

I got a deluxe sample of this last year from Sephora that lasted me for ages! I broke down and bought the full size recently and wow! this will last me forever! I really think this is a very good cleanser and I haven't had any bad reactions to it...It makes my face feel really clean with absolutely no tightness**Update** I'm done with Philosophy products. After using an entire bottle of this I've realized that it's too harsh in my opinion and was a major culprit in all my skin problems at the time. Between this and Hope in a Jar Philosophy has lost me as a customer forever

This is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. I continue to be amazed at how quickly and easily it takes all traces of makeup off my face. No having to go back and spot clean -- all clean in one pass! Best of all, it removes eye makeup instantly without drying out that skin around the eye or causing burning or irritation. I also like that it doesn't get foamy, so it's easy to wash off and never gets up my nose or anything. My skin feels very lightly moisturized after cleansing, so I'm not in a rush to lather on the moisturizer as though my skin had been stripped. I credit this product (along with some others from Philosophy's line) with helping my skin look clearer and healthier over the past couple of months. I could go on and on about this stuff; it's truly everything I need from a facial cleanser. Pricey but worth it!Some people have made comments about the scent of this product. To me it smells faintly "clinical" - not bad, but it doesn't make me want a Purity Made Simple-scented body spray, either. It's a clean, neutral, almost vaguely pharmaceutical smell. To me, it's just the way it smells. I don't find it very strong, regardless.

Wow! So far I love this cleanser with all of my heart. First of all, I love this scent! Fresh and herbal. It's divine! Purity MELTS off make-up, makes my skin feel really soft and clean. Not drying at all for my combination skin. A major plus, it doesn't burn my eyes! This only slightly foams and is more of light creamy/milky cleanser. I actually really want to try other philosophy products now! UPDATE: 02/04/06- Still loving this! I use it at night to take off my MU.

Will definitely buy again. I am 43 y.o. with dry skin. After reading the other reviews, it's amazing to me that this cleanser seems to work on oiler skin as well as my dry skin. I LOVE the fact that you do not need a separate toner.
