Philosophy Purity Made Simple High Foaming Daily Cleanser Review

Philosophy Purity Made Simply High Foaming Daily Cleanser ($21.50 for 60z)

I’d been meaning to review Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple High Foaming Daily Cleanser for quite awhile now but for one reason or another had just never gotten around ot it, but thanks to some gentle prodding by a reader here it is!

So to be frank I still have approximately half of this sitting in my bathroom as I didn’t really like it all that much. Don’t get me wrong it it’s a nice, super gentle cleanser, but for me it just doesn’t do what it claims to do. Here’s the description from Sephora:

Philosophy Purity Made Simple High Foaming Daily Cleanser deep cleans, tones, and removes all makeup, including eye makeup, with a high-foaming formula that leaves skin feeling refreshed, never tight or dry. It’s enriched with botanical extracts to soften and soothe skin.

Now maybe I wear some heavy duty industrial-strength makeup, but this stuff really didn’t do the greatest job removing my makeup. After using it my face didn’t feel all that clean, and of course my eye makeup was all still on my face, just smudged around and no longer on my eyelids.

I will admit that the cleanser was softening and soothing. My skin felt nice post-wash and I did enjoy the fun-factor of dispensing the foam into my hand. This cleanser definitely worked better for me when I used it to wash off my SK-II Cleansing Oil, but as a stand-alone cleanser this just didn’t cut it.

Now I also happen to not be a fan of Philosophy’s original Purity cleanser, so if you happen to like the stuff please disregard everything I’ve said since I had essentially the same complaints! As always, this is just my opinion and really what do I know? =)

RATING: 3/5 (the packaging and dispensing mechanism I did like after all!)
