Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

I've used this brand for sometime. I was more of a bares essential buyer. As my skin changes with mature age it's been expensive to find what moisturizer is best and won't kill my bank account. Imagine my surprise after months of using this product. I've even replaced my wrinkle cream. Will definitely be purshasing again. I'm hopeful they'll have some gift sets with this mosterizer for the holidays. Ladies over 50 give your face (skin) a couple of uses before you turn away from this product it works on wrinkles

Not for my skin type

By grek

from Minnesota

Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

Even though I used the ultra-light version, it was still too much for my skin and made my forehead break out. My skin does lean towards oily in the summer, so if you have oily skin this probably isn't for you. However, it is more effective for drier skin.

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

    This product is truly amazing. I suffer from acne and hormonal acne. I have only been able to use proactiv moisturizer which was leaving my skin dry.

    I made the big mistake of picking my face which left it with red marks all over. I've used this lotion may 4 days now and my skin is almost clear with NO marks!

    Holy grail!

      Best product ever. I had pretty regular acne and after using this product I have been able to stop using my harshier acne products and my skin has stopped being oily almost completely. Amazing product smells nice and is so easy to apply and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy at all!

        • Not Greasy

        Cons

        • Doesn't Hydrate

        Best Uses

        • Daily Use

        Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

        I got this purity after a break-down, I just wanted something for hydrating my skin while I am taking care of my skin with deep cleansing. I wanted something to delivers hydration and be light and doesn't make my skin to go through in another breakdown. The result I got was basically not a lasting hydration just a light moisturizer and not very effective in moisturizing.
        I hoped that this one would work because of the Philosophy brand and since it was a bit cheaper than other I thought maybe no harm in paying this much to try a new product! but I guess I have to return this and try a bit more expensive products :(

        LOVE THIS!

        By Raquel

        from Oregon

        Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

        I have oily skin and struggle finding a moisturizer that actually adds moisture to my skin without it getting greasy or clogged. So when I decided to try this moisturizer I didn't have a lot of high hopes but I was pleasantly surprised. Just after a week of using it my skin already looks 10x better. It's so soft and smooth and when I finish this bottle I'm definitely purchasing it again

        Best moisturizer I've used!

        By Ayla

        from Thornton

        Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer:

        Before I bought this product, I saw the price and was incredibly sceptical, until I saw how much product you get. I've used it for 4 months now, and I'm still barley to the middle of the bottle. Two to three pumps is enough for your whole face, so personally this is worth the investment. It feels amazing on the skin and has left me dewy and it is the first moisturizer my skin has been content with for the months I've used it.

        This feels like a product that cost less than 5 bucks. Doesn't absorb and is sticky and heavy.
