Great cleanser! It seems to cleanse and balance the skin well. I don't feel like I need a toner after using this product to take my makeup off. It's gentle and not over drying at all. Yet it gets all my makeup off.

This is alright, but there are better cleansers out there. Philosophy's Purity is extremely basic and straightforward. Lathers up nicely and rinses off easily.But that's about it. My HG cleanser is Peter Thomas Roth's Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, and their Irish Moor Mud Cleanser is excellent as well. I also really like Bliss' Fabulous Foaming Face Wash too. I would recommend any one of those cleansers over this one.For reference I have skin that is combo-oily, clog-prone, not sensitive. This particular cleanser does a fine job (it even removes my mascara) but it's not something that I would buy again.

I bought the Black Friday deal and am so happy I did! Love this cleanser! I was using Vichy ProEven for about a year before switching to purity and it was ok but on the extreme end of fragranced which always kind of bothered me. Purity has a nice fresh scent that isn't over-powering and removes even my waterproof mascara without drying out my skin. I use this twice, first to remove my makeup, then again with my clarisonic.

I have been using this product for at least five years now! Excellent makeup remover and cleanser all in one! Also use this with my clarasonic. Not irritating or harsh to the skin! Will continue to buy!

I love this cleanser! It smells like lemon cream and doesn't break me out. I'm acne prone and I use this in conjunction with a 2nd cleanser. I use it as a first step when removing my make up because it contains oils that helps break down foundation and powder. I do think that it doesn't spread far and also doesn't lather so you have to use alot to cover your whole face. But I do like it for a gentle cleanse plus the ingredients are good and contain great oils and vitamins.

I love this stuff.......I always first d myself coming back to it after failed attempts to look for something even better. I get it from QVC when they run specials, so for the size of the container its not absurdly priced. This is a cream, it does not foam. Do not expect it to foam. If you wear layer upon layer of product do not think that this will remove it all in one go. If you wear a foundation, some concealer, mascara and shadow this will take it all off. The best thing about it is that it will not burn your eyes, even if they are sensitive. The second best thing is that it leaves your skin smooth and never dry. It really is good stuff, I hope they don't change the formula.

I've used this 5+ years exclusively with my clairisonic. I always remove my makeup with another cleanser before I use purity. I don't know if it a good makeup cleanser. However, it's an excellent facial cleanser. A little goes a long ways. No complaints! My face feels very clean.

I am disappointed in this cleanser! I wanted to love it i really did! I went ahead and got the 240 ml at £18 because i trusted the many youtubers who raved about this! Smell - clinical ish quite strong not necessarily bad..Consistency - oily runny liqud - not a thick cream as you might expect with a cream cleanser. Breaks make up down VERY WELL and doesnt sting the eyes when removing eye makeup, not very foamy - have to work it in. Downfall - break outsI have quite clear skin and my only struggle are those under the skin flesh bumps from time to time.I usuaully use either an elemis cleanser or liz earle and have never broken out so i assumed my skin wasnt sensitive. To be fair just prior to this i used a cheap botanics cleanser from boots which broke me out and bought this to treat me skin to an expensive cleanser. Used for a week - my skin didnt improve from the first reaction and i got new spots. Overall my skin didnt look great or clear, this done nothing and broke me out more!! For a person with usually clear skin i am disappointed that this gave me issues that werent already there:( I googled it and others have same issue and it got a very poor review on Paulas Choice.I dont want to bash it because many people do love it but i think the abundance of OILS in this didnt react with my skin so beware!!! Suggest getting a smaller size to try first.

In love with this product! Removes all makeup but gentle on the eyes. Skin feels clean but not stripped .. have repurchased several times.. wish wasn't so expensive but going to buy a giant bottle on QVC and it will last

This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh without being stripped, which is always a plus. This also doesn't break me out and has kept my skin calm for many months, but I don't feel it has necessarily improved it either. So in that sense it does it's job well, but it leaves me wondering what else is out there.At first I thought it was extremely pricey but wanted to try it anyway, but this has lasted me at least over 9 months or so, so I would say the price is really fair actually. Sometimes it feels like this bottle doesn't ever finish.Will def repurchase if other cleansers don't perform as well as this one.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
