    I struggled to find an affordable alternative to the expensive products offered at the dermatologist's office and this is it! I have used so many products that boast it's use for rosacea or sensitive skin, but they all left my face dried out and with chronic peeling. I can actually get out of the shower without my skin feeling tight. It feels clean and refreshed! The peeling has completely stopped. I do use another product as a moisturizer, but I can skip a few days without any problems. This will be my face wash for life! I read the ingredients and there is a sulfate (only one) and the paraben is the 4th last ingredient in this product. I just LOVE this product for my sensitive skin!!

    This has always been a great product for removing all makeup (including eye makeup). But, I am disappointed that they have changed the formula to be runnier, thus, using more product every time. I used to be able to use a bottle in about a year. Now, it looks like I will have to purchase every 3-6 months. I like Philosophy usually, but I don't like it when they cheap out.

    check your ingredients-parabens in this

    Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

    this used to be my favorite face wash until I heard about the possible harmful affects of parabens in beauty products. Until I feel they are safe, I will not use any products with parabens.

      Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

      Before buying this product, I decided to read all the reviews first, and I started using expecting that would help, but I got a very bad rash, very bad to a point where I can't use this product anymore. I was so sad cause it seems to be a great product, but unfortunately it didn't work for me.

        I LOVE this cleanser. I have searched high and low for a nice, facial cleanser that would clear up my skin and not cause any irritation. This does everything I wanted. It smells unique, not really great and not bad, and the texture is nice and creamy. I use it with my Jane Iredale "The Mitt" and my face is squeeky clean but not dry at all. Very nice product.

          Purity is gentle enough to use around the eyes. It takes off make-up great. There is no foam so it doesn't dry out your skin. My skin feels clean and soft after using it and I trust Philosophy.

              My skin is combination - dry but with regular breakouts. I bought this after trying literally every cleanser from [...]...I am so happy! The other reviewers were not kidding. I don't know what is in this cleanser that makes it so wonderful, but I have seen a noticeable difference. No I don't have Jennifer Aniston's skin - and I never will - but my skin has shown a clear improvement in that it is nearly glowing, even in the dead of winter. I will never buy another facial cleanser again!

                Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 8 fl oz:

                I have rosacea and super dry skin in winter. I've tried EVERYTHING with no relief. Someone recommended Philosophy so I tried it and my skin is A) no longer dry at all, and B) no longer red/inflamed, but rosy and clear and smooth. I'm using this with the Hope In A Jar for dry and sensitive skin. It seems to keep getting better with use.

                The scent isn't that great but at least it's all natural, no perfume.

                My only complaint with beauty.com is their no returns policy. When I try something new that I'm not sure that I'll love, I shop elsewhere. Once I know I like it I purchase here.

                    I. Love. This. Cleanser. I know it's a bit spendy, but it will last you a long time (I got the largest one). It is the first cleanser that cleans ALL of the makeup off my face - and I wear waterproof liquid liner and mascara. Not a speck of it left after washing my face. It's got a great clean smell and feels great on your skin. Love it!!!
