In case you haven't noticed, I NEVER review skincare items on here! Why? Because my skin is a warzone. Its acne-prone, hormonal, baby skin. Yes, baby skin. That is the name I earned from the girl who waxes my brows because my skin is so delicate and when she waxes the ginger caterpillars above my eyes, she exclaims "OH, SO SORRY! YOU HAVE BABY SKIN!". To say it gets red is an understatement.
I've tried every cleanser. One of my roommate's even let me try her Proactiv, which lead to an allergic reaction. Nothing. Nada. Every single acne-fighting cleanser does nothing but leave my baby skin red and irritated.
Until I met Philosophy's Purity Made Simple Cleanser. This stuff is GENTLE. G-E-N-T-L-E, GENTLE! It doesn't irritate my skin! It genuinely cleans it.
Its a rich-milky lather that just cleans my skin. It removes my makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and not irritated! Yeees!
Now, it hasn't helped with my acne, but now I'm planning on getting a pink Clarisonic Mia to really help with that. But Purity just cleans my skin!
I mean, its so gentle I can use it in the morning to clean my eyes do get the mascara hangover off! And do it with my eyes open! AND THEY'RE NOT IRRITATED EITHER!
No burning, no nothing, just a great cleaning milk-like lather! LOVE!
I know I'm saying this for the 2533161x but it just CLEANS my skin! Its such a nice feeling and to clean my skin and not have it be irritated?! LOVE!
It comes in a few sizes, a small trial-size for $10 and up to a Costco like ginormous size! I have the 16oz which is the same size as their body washes (which I equally adore) and it retails for $32. But I started with the little $10 trial and fell in love! Sephora even gives out the little mini-travel size as a 100-point perk! WOOHOO!
So yes, lovelies, I love this. While I still have blemishes, this helps their redness!
This can be purchased at Sephora, Sephora.com, QVC, wherever Philosophy is sold!
