Philosophy Purity Made Simple

EdieEdie Registered Users Posts: 16
Has anyone tried the Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser? I've been looking for a new face cleanser/makeup remover that won't break me out or dry out my skin, and have been eyeing this one. It's pricey, so I don't want to buy it without reading many reviews first.
I have combination (leaning on the dry side,) sensitive skin.
Any reviews would be appreciated!
2c/3a, coarse, medium density, low porosity curls

    I use it and I really like it. I do not have sensitive skin so I cannot speak about that point. I buy mine from QVC. You can get a really large size and use the easy pay option. It lasts forever. You could check their website for reviews.

    I haven't tried this specifically but purity was not a friend to my sensitive skin. I used purity and hope in a jar and my skin turned sand papery and it took several months for it to heal. I've stayed away from that line since.

    My skin is combo/oily, but pretty sensitive. I've used Purity Made Simple, and it did calm my skin down after a pretty bad allergic reaction. I stopped using it because I was looking for a whole product line that I could use together, and Philosophy just wasn't it.

    Do not use it, especially if you have sensitive skin, it's extremely perfumed, expensive and it dried my oily skin out. The fragrance, colours and oils are irritating and they have no place in skincare.
