4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a second try, August 13, 2010

This review is from: Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, 16 Ounces (Misc.)
I first received this in the sample bottle, and honestly, I wasn't all that impressed with it. I wasn't crazy about the smell, it didn't lather, and it just didn't seem to do anything special. I kept it around for "bar nights" when I needed to really scrub out all the cigarette smoke from my pores, or nights I was too lazy to take off my eye makeup. (This works great for eye-makeup, and I use waterproof everything.)

Fast forward to my senior year of college. I got mono, and my skin completely freaked out. I would get huge cystic pimples around my chin, on the corners of my mouth, and in between my eyebrows. NOTHING I tried seemed to work. I used Proactiv, Neutrogena products, all the over-the-counter acne sets. I was starting to get desperate, but after a night out, I used the Purity and went to bed. I woke up, and my skin felt smoother, it wasn't as dry and sensitive from all the acne stuff, and my breakouts seemed smaller. I kept using it every night, along with my acne cleanser in the morning and spot treatment at night. The Purity kept my face from getting too dry, breakouts were few and far between and healed faster. Within a week or so I saw a huge difference. In three weeks my skin was almost completely clear.

I've completely stopped using any acne stuff other than the spot treatment, and my skin has stayed clear. I don't even need moisturizer. I still have blackheads and the occasional pimple, but the ones I get now are small and go away within a day or two. I can go into public without concealer- which is awesome, because I spent so much time dabbing on concealers and powder to hide my skin.

I can't promise that this will work for everyone, but for my skin, which is dry, slightly sensitive, and breaks out due to hormones/stress, it worked great for me. It is expensive, but it lasts a long time. I'd recommend trying the 4oz sample bottle first- it lasts a good two or three months and isn't priced much higher than your typical drugstore brand.
