This is a good gentle face wash, removes make up really well, but I don't know if it's contributing to my acne/clogs or not. It doesn't help, but then, it doesn't claim to. My main problem is with the price and what it does for the price. It's good but does not work miracles, actually it doesn't really do anything other than being a basic cleanser that removes makeup well and does nothing else really. So far the only thing I've found that I like better is a LOT more $$$. I said yes I'll repurchase this but only if I don't find something better. This is my 3rd bottle of this, 1 of which was a liter, and I've been using it for 2 years, so that search hasn't been going so well lol. But honestly im sick of spending the money. I think I'll try cetaphil next.

I had a little 3 fl oz sample of the purity cleanser and it has lasted for a decently long time for how small the bottle was. I always used a cream cleanser to remove my makeup first before using this cleanser so I don't know how well it removes makeup but I think it was good for removing whatever might have been leftover from my first cleanse. The cleanser is gentle and it left my face feeling clean without feeling stripped. I love the creamy texture. I will try other cleansers out and if nothing seems better then I will repurchase it.

I was scared to get this since I usually get anti-acne face washes. I tried it and Ive had it for about 4 months and wow!! It makes my skin happy to say the least. I feel good when I use this, but I dont feel "pure". my face still has some slight acne scars and bumps and I need to look for some anti-bacterial face washes(: If I dnt find anything after I finish my bottle I might repurchase it, but I feel like I can do alot better(: oh also when I wash my face, I open my mouth to get down n deep on my nose ridges and above my lip and let me say THIS STUFF TASTE NAAAAAAAASTY!!! The first time I got some on my lip I had to stop and rinse mt mouth cuz it taste soo toxic and bitter UGGGH ive never had a face wash taste so bile :/

LOVE this product. I am pretty lazy when it comes to taking off my makeup at night and this does the trick. I have pretty good skin (normal/dry), but get the occasional pimple every once in a while. This is a simple cleanser that does a great job at taking off my makeup and leaving my skin feeling clean afterwards but not tight and dry. It's gentle enough to use on my eyes and has a slight herbal, clean scent that isn't overpowering. My only negative comment is that it is a littler more expensive than the other cleansers I have used, but you get a lot of product for the price and it is definitely worth it.

So.. I was really excited to try this product because I've never found a face wash that I have liked and been able to stay with. But this was just another average face wash. It comes in a super cute bottle, but thats about it. It didn't do much of anything for my face and I wasn't thrilled. I might buy it again, but hopefully I can find something better.

I love this cleanser. It smells freshly soapy, and it cleans my combo skin without drying it out or leaving a residue. It's thick and it doesn't foam very much. A little goes a long way, making it more economical than the price initially implies. I will repurchase.

Not "pure" at all. Totally irritated my skin. Made me blotchy looking. I now use CeraVe and it has been great.

This cleanser was average for me it wasn't anything special i would buy it again only if i don't find anything better

I thought it was suppose to be a simple mild cleanser that I could use with my clarisonic but it has been breaking me out so badly! It reminds me of my trial with cetaphil, nothing but little spots all over my face and painful under the skin acne! I have sensitive, acne prone skin so please be wary of this product if you do too. I read the reviews and thought it might be the purging stages but it got so painful after about a week I laid off it as as my esthecian advised and noticed an improvement almost immediately. Trying to give it the benefit of the doubt (and since I bought 2 big bottles at a very good price) I wanted to try it again and it's only been 2 days since and my skin is already getting as bumpy as last time! Such a shame, since I had such high hopes for it. I would not recommend this product, especially if you didn't have luck with cetaphil.

For what it is, I think this cleanser is overpriced. It's very nice and gentle, but Burt's Bees makes a cleanser very similar that actually foams a little better. It's worth a try, but I wouldn't repurchase this cleanser because it's a little underwhelming.

This is by far the best face wash I have ever used. I've got combination skin that clogs pretty easily and this wash works wonders. Does not dry your skin and after use with my Clarisonic it does not make your skin tight. I use it every evening just after removing my make up with MAC clean off oil.
Bit on the pricey side but well worth the money.

I recently purchased the Philosophy "Purity Made Simple" face cleanser at my local Sephora. The price was not too bad and from what I have heard from some other people, it lasts you a long time. I was using the Clinique Acne Solutions but it seemed like my skin was not agreeing with some chemical in the skincare line which was making my face dry and my breakouts were worse than ever. I do not have acne prone skin but I do have combination so I have to be careful about what I use on my face. I love this stuff. It smells great, it does everything it says it will do and it leaves my skin feeling very clean and glowing after I use it. I will be re-purchasing this whenever I am done. I hope to try the "Hope In A Jar" moisturizer next :)

eed to I have repurchased this like 5 times! I learned that any new product you use on your face, you need to give it 4 to 6 weeks to work! So I did that with this product, and after initial break out a tiny bit on my chin, it really balanced out my skin, and keeps it in great shape!! it is light, but gets my makeup (even waterproof) off my face, and makes me feel clean, without that tight skin feeling i get from a lot of drugstore cleansers (esp clean and clear and aveeno). I almost never break out anymore, and my skin is in great shape, and i think its thanks to this! even after i changed moisturizers, it helped my skin get through that change!!

This definitely isn't a product that agrees with my skin. Since I started using it, I've had terrible acne around my chin and mouth area, which has never been a problem for me in the past. It doesn't do a very good job at removing all of my makeup and I don't wear it very heavily. I'm not a fan of the fragrance either, but that's just personal preference. Overall, I'm quite disappointed after reading so many favourable reviews and I would definitely not purchase it again or recommend it to others with a similar skin type to my own.

In general, I'm not a fan of Philosophy products but I really like this cleanser. It has a light herbally scent and a milky, creamy consistency that leaves my skin feeling clean but not squeaky clean or tight. It has a hard time taking off waterproof mascara though, especially if you use a eyelash primer (I use Shiseido primer with L'oreal WP false fiber lashes mascara and I had to follow up with DHC oil cleanser to remove the rest of my mascara from my lashes). Unfortunately this contains parabens so it doesn't achieve HG status in my book - that spot still belongs to Boscia's Purifying Gel Cleanser. But for those who don't care about parabens, this is a nice cleanser, just don't count on it to remove all of your mascara.

When I first started using this product, I believe it did cause me to breakout heavily. However, after continuing to use it, my breakouts have lessened considerably. I really like that this cleanser removes all of my makeup easily and leaves my face feeling clean but not overly dry.

Eh, this was good, but it's not great. It'll do what you expect it to do: it cleans... but you won't get amazing results with it. I would suggest using makeup remover or Vaseline if you have heavy eye makeup on because it won't get everything off. I found this cleanser to be a little bit drying, but most cleansers are, I suppose.

Broke me out originally when I used it and over-time my skin got used to it...ish. Still some concerns but nothing huge at this rate. Bought a small bottle (ridiculous price) at Sephora but never finished it. Didn't quite like the product.
For the make-up cleaning aspect of it, my eye make-up was cleaned not too bad. Waterproof mascara cleaning, no but still not bad. Not totally worth the hype for me.

I got this as a Sephora perk and I love it. I never have spent too much money on cleansers, sticking with whatever I could find in CVS, Duane Read, whatever.
As I am aging I am noticing some of my skin is red, wrinkles are coming ahhhhhh - but mostly anything I wash with leaves my skin feeling so dry. It can't be quenched.
This is 20 bucks for a small bottle and 40 bucks for a large size, sorry I don't have the amounts.
I think it is absoluetely worth it!! It does have some skin conditioning elements in it, and my skin does not feel sucked dry after I wash my face.

Out of all makeup removers/ cleansers, this topped my list. It completely removes makeup and eye make up, just love it. Does not burn my eyes. Not only that, a bottle last me 11 months, a little goes a long way. It also never made me break out. I am in love with this, try it you wont be dissapointed!!!!
