My Thoughts
I have skin that breaks out very easily.  Pretty much if you look at me the wrong way, I get a breakout!  I've got to be super careful about the products I use on my face.  I bought a sampler kit of Philosophy products several months ago and was introduced to this product.  I've been using this ever since!

This retails from Sephora.com between $10 - $45.50. 

- A little bit goes a long way!
- Within a few days of starting to use this, I noticed a significant reduction in black heads.
- It removes makeup VERY well, including eye make up.  After I wash my face with this, I usually don't even need eye makeup remover.
- It doesn't irritate my eyes.
- It is not drying and gentle enough to use several times a day (if you want! lol).
- The condition of my skin has improved tremendously since I started using it.  So much so that people now tell me "Wow!  You have such clear skin!"  Considering my mother once affectionately referred to my complexion as looking like "hamburger meat" that means a lot!

- Pretty much my only con with this product is the price.  But it works, and it works WELL, so I'm willing to pay for it! :)

Final Recommendation:

This is an amazing skin cleanser.  If you have problem skin, especially acne, I would definitely recommend you try this!  It's made a huge difference in my complexion.

I give the Philosophy Purity Made Simple facial cleaner 5 out of 5. 

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask in the comments!

i really liked purity made simple, but the lack of any foam made me gravitate to the equally soft/gentle Korres milk proteins foaming cream cleanser.
