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 fl oz:

      I had to write a review only to warn that this is not really as "pure" as I expected. After using and developing itchy bumps, I did a little research and discovered a number of people who experience breakouts or irritation due to harsh ingredients. Although the reviews are really positive, just wanted to warn those with sensitive skin to maybe try the smaller sizes first, unlike me who immediately went for the biggest size possible!

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

      I love this facewash, It gets my eye makeup off quickly. My only gripe is that it can dry my face just a teeny bit. However, I use a moisturizer right after washing my face so it's not a big deal.

          This cleanser did not work for me. Right away, I began to break out, my skin tone was splotchy and uneven, and my face felt oily. I thought a hydrating cleanser would be fine to use in the dry winter months, but apparently not. I'm going back to my Skinceuticals cleanser!

              I have been using purity for a few years now and I love the way it cleans my face. It removes face makeup too. My last cleaner made my face feel dry and still there was makeup on my toner pad.

                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.
