My favorite cleanser to date: Philosophy's Purity. I have used many of Philosophy's products in the past, and even swear by a few of them. It has left me wondering why it took me so long to discover Purity.
First off, I must say that I hate to use a few products to really get to the nitty gritty of cleaning my face. I loathe eye makeup remover, and toner is not one of my favorite' s either. I think that the promise of Purity being a multi-tasking cleanser really drew me to it.
The first thing I noticed was how nice the smell was, so fresh and clean... even pure (nice play on words!). And in my few weeks of playing with this cleanser has taught me that a tiny dime sized amount will do. I gently massage the cream over my face, neck, and even eyes - through my eyelashes! I rub around, ever so lightly, for about 20 - 30 seconds. That is all it takes. Every bit of makeup is removed. There is no oil or dryness left behind. And the feeling - clean. Pure clean - really!
Purity comes in two sizes - 8 oz. for $20 or 16 oz. for $32. Obviously the large size is the better value - and that will be the one I pick up when I am out.
