A couple of weeks back I have received a bottle of Philosophy Purity one-step facial cleanser from Habchi & Chalhoub group to give it a try. The timing couldn't be more perfect! My daily cleansing cream from Dr. Hauschka is about to finish (By the way! Thanks to my lovely friend N for introducing me to it!), and since Dr. Hauschka is not stocked in Kuwait, I needed a good alternative.
Philosophy Purity came with a beauty book which gives an introduction about their skin care and beauty lines, plus it had some smart and positive messages throughout the book like the one shown in the photo above. I loved the vintage images used in the book too, gave it a whimsical touch.
Now back to the product, Philosophy Purity is formulated to gently cleanse, tone and remove all face and eye makeup in one step while lightly hydrating the skin. This was very convenient for me because I like to keep my skin care routine plain and simple. I have tried the product for the two weeks maybe? And I found it to be very impressive in terms of melting away my make-up, some products I have used in the past required me to wash my face twice at least in order to have all my make-up removed. It doesn't foam up much, but I've heard that they do carry a foaming type of this product. So far my skin didn't break out, so that's a good sign. However, I did get an irritated skin a day or two, not sure if it's a case of allergy or from the product itself. But overall, I'd give it four out of five stars.
You can find Philosophy Purity at Sephora boutique in the Avenues Phase II.
