    All in one facial cleanser + make up remover + toner.

    This seems to be strictly a gel cleanser- doesn't particularly foam or lather when applied with hands, or directly to the skin... was a bit odd at first because in my head i felt like my skin wasnt clean due to the lack of suds or lather or any kind of reaction when massaged with water but after using it as strictly just a make up remover on my eyes, i had no doubt my skin was being cleaned cause it worked VERY well at removing my face and eye make up... even waterproof. The only problem was i didnt like the texture of it as a make up remover it was way too thick and doesnt get absorbed by the cotton or whatever you're using to take off your eye make up with and it seems like its so gunky and seems like you cant just wipe it off you have to wash it off after. Other than that its very effective and smells good. I personally wouldnt purchase this again unless it was on sale.

    Lovely cleanser which is safe for eyes and stabilizes skin

    SO I've tried a few products by philosophy and none of them have really excited me, however this facial cleanser I recently got in a beauty box is a seriously good. Now, I know we all probably have a gazillion cleansers and cleaners and toners and so on, but what sets this one apart for me is the fact that you can use it on your eyes! As someone who hates being oily I have ruled out most eye make-up removers altogether because they are all so damn oily, so I was quite keen to try this right away when it came in my beauty box. It actually works wonders as a face cleanser, and makes my skin feel SUPER clean and ready for a moisturiser, but the best part is that you can rub it on your eyes (no stinging!) and seriously like magic all of your make up disappears! I keep coming out of the shower expecting to have raccoon eyes, but they are sparkling clean and not oily at all! I don't know if anyone else hates eye make-up removal products, but if you do, you might want to try this product. The only faults I can give it is that there is no real scent (but that is probably why there is no stinging) and that the packaging is seriously boring, but those this might not be as important to someone else. As I said I normally find them a bit boring, but maybe sometimes boring is good when it comes to skin care.

    Amazing, multiple purpose, and gentle

    Love this product. I use it to take off my makeup, cleanse my face, and watch my makeup brushes. It's gentle and tough at the same time.

    I have eyes that can be irritated easily but this stuff is ok for me to remove my makeup. Love love love

    Skin feels clean & refreshed

    I absolutely love this cleanser. It's gentle enough to use every day, it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. It doesn't strip my skin or leave it feeling overly dry.

    I especially love using this product after a long day, when I don't want to use a separate eye makeup remover, this does the job and gets everything off in one easy cleanse.

    Would definitely recommend it to others, in this case - a little goes a long way!

    Love it!!

    I like that this face cleanser is gentle on the skin. However, it still gets your face clean, removing all traces of makeup. I have been using it for a couple years now and plan on continuing to use it.

    Not a good match

    I have sensitive skin and this face wash did not work for me. It left my skin irritated. I’m not really sure what it was in it. It is a creamy cleanser. I didn’t feel like my face was fresh and clean after using it. I tried it a few times years apart just in case it was a fluke.It was reoccurring. I did not have a good experience with this one.

    over hyped

    For years and years I've heard great things about this cleanser. I finally bought a bottle. I was so disappointed. Made my forehead dry, doesn't remove all of my makeup, face didn't feel like it had a deep clean and smells like rubbing alcohol.

    Good facial cleaners and makeup remover

    First off I have to say this lasts forever, you are 225ml and only need a very small amount to cleanse with. I liked the fact that this is paraben and SLS free and had a lot of natural oils and ingredients. This cleanser does have a very herbal scent so if that isn’t something you enjoy it may not be for you. I felt like it did a good job of cleansing my face, it foamed nicely and washed always cleanly. I did not feel that it left my skin overly dry or oily. I did not try this for removing my eye makeup as I only really use cleansing waters around my eye area, so I can’t say how it works for eye makeup removing or if it stung at all. Overall I did enjoy using this product and I would repurchase it in the future.

    Amazing cleanser

    This is exactly as the name says - simple. This cleanser is a very basic everyday cleanser that makes your skin feel fresh, clean but moisturized. Amazing value. Huge bottle for a great price. Highly recommend for any skin type. I have very sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate my skin at all (Psoriasis & eczema).

    Repurchased 3 times already!

    My face feels clean and all my makeup comes off so easily, AND this is the one cleanser that my face feels fresh and moisturized after each and every use! Best moisturizing cleanser I have ever used.
