My Review: Philosophy Purity Made Simple

Updated on March 11, 2013

At last, a facial cleanser to remain loyal to!

I admit. I don't usually pledge my loyalty to any product, let alone skin/beauty items. But when I decided I'd give Philosophy's Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser a try, I got converted and have been a user for over a year now. (This is very long in my loyalty-to-a-specific-product-year!) So here is my personal sharing why I love this cleanser so much.

A bit about this user

My age..., well, let's just say I belong to the Gen X group. I've got sensitive Asian skin that tans easily but not easily sun-burnt. I grew up with Clinique, Clarins, Lancome, Revlon, Olay, drug-stores branded products, and the list grows, thanks to the commercials. I believe my skin is a combination of oily and dry, but as I live in Australia currently, the climate and water combination equals dryer skin. So, whatever cleanser I use, I have to make sure that a moisturizer is nearby!

I don't shy away from the sun, don't wear heavy make-up, and rarely have break-outs. (Just don't mention the blackheads!) I like being practical, meaning one extra step to just clean my face equals good bye product.

How the product converted me to be a regular user

  1. It is relatively cheaper than my previous facial cleansers from Lancome or Clinique, and I don't mind it being pricey in comparison to Dove or Nivea, as their products don't meet my expectations.
  2. One bottle goes a long way! All it takes is a pea-sized amount of the creamy lightly-scented cleanser to clean my face at the end of the day, from dirt, sweat, and make-up - I can actually see my eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara dissolve!
  3. It is the only product I need: toner is not needed! (When I first tried the product, I used my (ex-) usual toner to see just how clean my face is: the cotton soaked toner looked like it wasn't used!)
  4. It leaves my skin neither oily nor dried out. I was always worried that I won't find optimal facial cleanser under the Australian climate, but not anymore now.

The verdict

The product is worth every cent I, and it does what the producer promotes. I'm joining other users: highly recommended!
