I cannot say how happy I am that I found this product and after reading the reviews decided to give it a try. After 20 years of dry, irritated, break-out prone skin, using this along with MD Forte moisturizer leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean and soft and my breakouts are GONE!! I've always had horrible skin but now people compliment me saying I look like I'm glowing (and I'm 41). Even though I'm a "budget buyer" I've tried products two or three times as much money in desperation to try to clear up my skin so Purity seems like a total bargain to me! And since a little goes a LONG way the large bottle lasts a very long time so it's very cost effective! I am just so delighted with this product!!!

THIS CLEANSER USE TO CONTAIN NO SULFATES, NOW IT HAS 2 DIFFERENT KINDS! I ORDERED THIS OFF THIS SITE BECAUSE THE INGREIENTS LISTED FOR IT WERE THE OLD INGREIENTS- W/ NO SULFATES, IT IS LISTED WRONG, IT DOES CONTAIN THEM AND PARABENS TOO. THIS WILL DRY YOUR SKIN AND MIGHT MAKE YOU BREAK-OUT. I KEPT IT BECAUSE I DID NOT WANT TO MESS W/ RETURNS. I WILL NOT BE ORDERING PURITY ANYMORE, WHY CHANGE SOMETHING THAT IS PERFECT?... TO SAVE $ PEOPLE! SHAME ON YOU CHRISTINA.

    Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 16 oz:

    I have heard great things about the Philosophy brand, but with this I was not impressed. I really wanted what the bottle says "Purity made simple," but I just didnt find it. I still found that I needed to use a toner, and overall the product just didn't work for me (I think I would have preferred Dial bar soap). Before I had been using Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleanser but now I dont think I can use anything other than MURAD Clarifying Cleanser.

            I use Purity for removing my makeup, including eyemake. It is wonderful. Leaving my skin feeling so soft and smelling so clean and fresh. I have been using this Purity for over 8 years now. My daughters and now my granddaughter use it as well. If it didn't work my whole family wouldn't be using it. But we all have a testimony of have WONDERFUL it is.
            The only negative thing about it is, you want ever want to be with out it.
            Thank you Philosophy for making such a GREAT product. We love it!!!

            I have finally found my HG cleanser. Philosophy sure got it right when they formulated this baby. I have combo skin that more oily during the summer and more dry during the winter, and I find this works great for me year round. This works well to dissolve my makeup and clean my skin. I use it in conjunction with my Clarisonic Mia to get a really deep pore cleaning. With those two products, my skin has never been better!

              Comments about philosophy purity made simple, one-step facial cleanser, 16 oz:

              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!!

                There is nothing "pure" about sulfates and parabens. This stuff is good marketing gone bad. I bought it in a hurry without reading the ingredients and 5 days using it caused me major dryness and irritation (which took a month of other products to fix). One look at what's in it explains everything. Too bad - I had high hopes as it at least smells good.

                I received this in a kit, and after one or two uses, my skin was so dried out. I have bad reactions to a lot of Philosophy cleansing products causing dryness. My skin also was red with some reaction to something in the ingredients.

                I would not recommend this to anyone it is a waste of money-buy something at the drugstore instead that is tried and true for your skin.
