With a name like Purity Made Simple, I assumed this would be non-irritating. Boy, was I wrong. There's nothing pure about this cleanser. I mean, look at the hefty ingredient list! It was my mistake for giving into all of the hype and avoiding the ridiculous ingredients.

Purity Made Simple really irritated my eyes. I even had someone at work ask if I had a case of pink eye emerging. My eyes were bloodshot and itchy.

Oh, and this made me break out. It caused a total of three cystic zits for me -- one on my forehead, temple, AND CHEEK! Which is horrible because the cheeks are where I avoid breaking out most, as they are extremely prone to hyperpigmentation. This should take quite a while to heal, especially since my crappy skin takes forever to heal the cystic ones. :( NEVER again will I let this touch my face.

The ONLY plus about this cleanser is the cute packaging. That's about it.
