Product Review: Purity Cleanser by Philosophy

What is it about Philosophy products? The packaging alone makes me want to be a better person. [Edit: After I wrote this entry, I thought I'd read up on the brand a bit more. That is exactly what their mission statement says. CRAZY. Read here]

Purity Made Simple by Philosophy, $20 (8 0z)


Gentle. Smells like heaven. Still not a “cream” so it won’t add moisture, but  sage, chamomile and carrot infusion leaves skin feeling so soft. The scent reminds me of a fancy spa. After a stressful day, the last thing I want to do is spend time at the sink primping, but this works like aromatherapy and can relax me in just the few minutes I spend washing my face.  Mabe not worth buying full size, but the $10, 3-oz mini bottle is worth the splurge. With only occasional usage it lasts forever. Great for traveling, esp when you want to feel “Hilton” but can only afford “Holiday Inn”!
