which for me works best during the summer months
This is a gel product, not a cream. The gel helps remove more oil from your skin, which for me works best during the summer months. I move back to the cream during fall so my face retains more moisture.
What I like the most about this product is it works on your eyes in a gentle way. Most face wash does not go on your eyes, and if it you do use it on your eyes it will dry them out or burn. Not with Philosophy products. Please be sure to read the directions.
How to use; wet your face, use a dime size amount and rub together on damp hands, rub in a circular motion on your face for 30 seconds to 1 minute then rinse.
I generally use this in the am and pm during the hot months. I follow it with a good moisturizer as well.
The bottle lasts me about 1 year, when used moderately. Well worth the money. I also buy this on BTA-MALL to save on the shipping!

Packaging leads to waste.
This is a fine facial soap and I haven't had any issues with drying skin or breakouts, but the packaging is not great. Mine seems to leak constantly so I have to keep it hung with the cap up. It also comes out really quickly and a TINY bit is enough to wash your face and neck so I constantly feel like I'm wasting it or it's being lost down the drain because of the poor packaging. I love Philosophy overall but this is definitely not one of my favorites of their products.

As good as th cream cleanser
Works just as well as thas cream cleanser. I bought this to take to work with me since I work in super hot humid conditions for 10-12 hours a day. My face gets dirty and really oily. I tried going with washing 2 times a day. But I was breaking out massively from so much sweat, dirt and oil. I wash with this in the middle of the day and my face is much clearer now.

Not what I meant to buy, but still fantastic!
This stuff is great. I meant to buy a different product, but didn't realize there were several different products from the "purity" line. I accidentally bought this instead of the 3-in-1 cleanser, and I almost like this one better. It's hard to say for sure, but I love that this one foams up when you use it so you really feel like you're getting clean. But still so gentle! Would buy again.

I love this face wash. I got a sample of this at my local Sephora and I loved it. I wear makeup daily and also have some issues with my combination skin. It gets dry and irritated in spots and then broken out and oily in other areas. This facewash helps remove my makeup and help with my oily areas but is gentle enough where it doesn't cause the irritation and dryness that a lot of other face washes cause me. I can't say enough good things about this face wash.

I had been using Aminogenesis Really Really clean and it hadn't made me feel really really clean, when removing eye make up (mascara only) it would leave me with raccoon eyes, not completely removing the mascara, however Philosophy Purity gel cleanser does the trick, I use a smaller than dime sized amount and have no raccoon eyes, the mascara is gone, my face is left feeling clean and refreshed, no residue is left behind. I'm 100% happy with this product, it is my new forever make up remover!

Not the real thing
I've purchased philosophy Purity in store before and loved the scent. This is not the same product. This title is misleading calling it a gel cleanser. It is a facial gel cleanser and make up remover. The scent is not the same and smells more like a household cleaning product. Avoid and buy in person to know you're getting a real philosophy product.

Have used Purity for many years. Does a great job getting the daily crud off the face, but doesn't dry out your skin.

Best Face Wash Ever
I love the consistency of the Purity gel face wash and the smell is so pleasant. I am always in the search for the best of everything which means I usually never repurchase the same product twice. I have purchased this face wash 4-5 times! It is the only face wash that controls my oily skin but does not make it dry. I also have acne prone skin and this does not break me out at all. If you have normal/dry skin I recommend the original face wash because this may make your skin too dry but this is great for oily skin. This bottle lasts for a very long time so the price is totally worth it to me. One bottle has lasted me 4-5 months which is amazing. Love, love, love Philosophy products and the Purity gel face wash is by far the best I have used!

I have used this for quite a few years. I like the way it dispensed other than a big bottle. My 19 year granddaughter asked me to order her this after she tried it at my house. She is now hooked over the past year. Her brother, my grandson who is 18 tried hers. Now I have to order for him too!
