philosophy: purity is natural. we come into this world with all the right instincts. we are innocent and, therefore, perceive things as they should be, rather than how they are. our conscience is clear, our hands clean and the world at large is truly beautiful. it is at this time we feel most blessed. to begin feeling young again, we must begin with the most basic step of all, the daily ritual of cleansing.
Philosophy products are made to enhance the skin as well as well-being and that is translated into uplifting messages on each bottles and jars. Philosophy said that each of their product has a story and each story speaks to the heart of the brand.
One of my best kept secret is the simplest and shortest time I take to remove all my makeup, cleanse and tone. Obviously the secret is out now that I’m telling you that the secret is this Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes.
The Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes is the easiest and the most simple 3-in-1 cleanser I’ve used. It is made to remove makeup thoroughly, cleanse at the same time and lastly, tone. This means I don’t have to double cleanse because this unique gel, non-foamy cleanser gave me a squeaky clean face. And I can skip toner too. However, on days where my skin is particularly dry, I still use a toner. It gave a peace of mind but there is absolutely no harm if one would want to continue the normal skin care routine.
I’ve tried using this cleanser to remove my eye makeup as well. Now, if you know me you will know that all my eye makeup are waterproof and long lasting. That means removing is a pain most of the time. I don’t have an issue with removing eye makeup with this cleanser except for mascara. It’s not a problem for me since I always remove my mascara separately but if you are looking for one product to remove everything, you need to work on the area more. I hate to say this but this cleanser stings my eyes unless I close both eyes tightly, work faster and quickly rinse thoroughly with water thereafter.
Some time ago Philosophy had a workshop and a few of bloggers went. Right after the workshop, a few of the bloggers actually told me that this cleanser also make a great brush cleanser. I never doubted this cleanser in any way before and I could totally see why it is able to remove dirt from makeup brushes. But then again, I might not spend that much for brush cleanser lol. This bottle I have is so precious to me and I wouldn’t want to finish it up so soon 😀
If you want me to recommend one product from Philosophy to try for a beginner, I would say get this Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes. Not the shower gel but get this. If you want a skin care that is more targeted, I’d always recommend the The Microdelivery Peel, which I’ve gone through two sets 😉
