I got myself a sample of the Philosophy Purity Cleanser quite a while ago (I think it was when Debenhams had a code for 7 free samples when buying 2 products online) and recently got another bottle in the BBB Edit Beauty box. I was quite excited to give it a go because I'd heard such great things about this one step cleanser but didn't buy it as it costs £28.50. Having googled it, in Boots you get 480ml of product for that amount which to be fair is quite a lot! If you don't want to invest that much you can get 90ml for £8 which is the size I have below.
Once I saw the runny texture of the cleanser, I was ready to say how it isn't very effective at removing make up but surprisingly it is. It is meant to be a 3-in-1 formula, i.e. cleanse, tone and remove all face and eye make up. It does remove it (including mascara, the ultimate test) and to be thorough there's nothing wrong with having a muslin cloth at hand.
For almost £30 it's too much for me to spend on an everyday facewash. To remove make up, my Superdrug hot cloth cleansers do a very good job at 1/10 of the price (when on offer). I'm also not the most ingredient savvy but was surprised to see this contains parabens and so isn't as 'pure' as you'd think, just in case that bothers you (it isn't a deal breaker for me). Having said that, I would definitely recommend this to those looking for a no faff cleanser that leaves you feeling soft and hydrated.
Have you ever tried this product?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
