Top Reviews

Skin Type

philosophy's cleansing oil works well, really loosens up my combination skin loaded with makeup and grime at the end of the day and leaves it soft and clean

- Ulta User

i have dry cheeks with an oily t-zone, and it works well for both areas

- Sephora User

hydration

hydrating

takes my makeup off beautifully and my face feels clean and fresh and not dry afterward

- Sephora User

it leaves my face feeling clean and hydrated, with no greesy residue

- Sephora User

gentleness

gentle

my skin suffers from hormonal/adult acne along my chin/jawline, and this oil cleanser does not irritate my skin at all; instead, my skin is soft and heals quickly from blemishes

- Ulta User

this cleansing oil gently melts everything - sunscreen, foundation, long-wearing eye products and lipstick - leaving almost no residue, no teary eyes or blurred vision

- Sephora User

texture

smooth

after cleansing, my skin felt healthy, velvety smooth, and very soft with no oiliness hours later

- Philosophy User

it leaves my skin *so* soft and smooth, and removes all my makeup just like the original purity

- Philosophy User

acne

good for acne

i have also noticed that this is actually really effective in reducing the length of my breakouts (more so than the classic purity made simple-which i use every morning)

- Philosophy User

i follow it w the philosophy a purity made simple face wash & it doesn't dry my face or give me breakouts

- Sephora User

uneven skintone

evens out skin

the first time i used it i was in love, see i have been going throu some crazy things with my skin & what i have read looks like i have melasma, dark spots patches you name it

- Philosophy User

is that not something i pray god 'help me' & look he lead me to 'help me" & this oil it is removeing the dark spots & patches my pores are no more they are gone it is doing this slow, but everytime i use it i see more of my skin again & it is smoothing fine lines

- Philosophy User

this not a one step cleanser

I try do like this product a lot. I'm VERY impressed. I have very oily skin that I fight by using oil (crazy but it works) and this has helped control my oil so so much. I love love using coconut oil to remove my makeup but sadly that clogs my pores :( I've tried many Micellar waters and other cleansing oils and this one is just gentle and it removes my makeup wonderfully. But don't get confused this isn't a one step thing, this is a prep for washing your face which a lot of people don't like, but most cleansers don't remove all of your makeup well. I use the purity cleanser too sometimes and together they are fabulous!! But even if you use a different cleanser this is 100% worth it. I also have cystic acne and this has been a huge part of getting rid of that and fighting the oil. Very pleased

Now that I am using it PROPERLY, freakin' AMAZING

At first it didn't do much, then I read that you apply it to DRY skin first. I have oily, acne prone skin, and now I use this a makeup remover before I wash my face at night, and I LOVE it! I always follow with purity face wash to remove the oil, but it literally completely melts off all makeup, even waterproof. And no irritation at all. Buy it!

Ok Philosophy You Sold Me

I am a product junkie and I tried everything from shisiedo, clarins, proactiv, well clinique was ok and over the counter drugstores but anyways most of them left me with zits overdrying and oily skin but this one was very sensitive and gentle and no break outs!!! And plus this is like a cleanser/toner in one just like the purity made simple cleanser. The clinique three step cause me $51 but this the rep said all i need was this and a good moisturizer I would save a couple of bucks so true! I love this I would recommend this to my friends... works good on my combo skin with my tretinoin I am taking right now please do not discontinue.... you sold me philosophy!!! What is Clinique hahaha sorry I have switch...

Started out good, not so much now

I looooooved this cleanser. After trying out the original purity made simple, and liking that, I wanted to try this, hoping it would work better. Also, just the idea of cleansing oil has always intrigued me, I thought this was a good way to test it out.Now for removing makeup, this is amazing. I read several reviews about this irritating people's eyes- I used this on my eyes to take off mascara and liner, and I noticed no fogginess, itching, or irritation, and I happen to be a contact lens-wearer. The original purity, however, irritates my eyes a ton, which is why I liked this better. No more using wipes for my eyes, and a cleanser for my face!However, after a while, I noticed how bad my skin has gotten. It broke me out like nothing else. I have usually clear skin (I'm 17), maybe a pimple here or there during that time of month, but it really is not sensitive at all, and I break out verrrrrry rarely. But this (the only thing I've changed in my routine) caused me to break out into fairly large clusters of big and small blemishes on both my cheeks, and my forehead. I even had people comment on how my skin was getting progressively worse. I've stopped using this for only about 4 days, and my skin is already clearing up so much. So while I loved it for how great it was at taking off my makeup, I can't justify buying this again, seeing how bad my face looks. « less

A PRAYER ANSWERED, THANKS TO THIS GOD SENT OIL!

I MUST FIRST SAY THAT 5 STARS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THIS OIL !I HAVE only BEEN USING PHILOSOPHY FOR a few weeks, AND ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW...WOW! what an awesome brand! i started with hiaj org. formula got it at sephora. i then placed an on line order & got a 1oz bottle of this oil (it last a long time). the first time i used it i was in love, see i have been going throu some crazy things with my skin & what i have read looks like i have melasma, dark spots patches you name it. its been so hard going throu this & i never thought is was going to go away. but after so many prayers asking god to "help me" he did he took me to your web site & said ladonna this is it, it will work! "i felt so good about buying your products" ok thank i'm crazy well thats ok i dont care. cause that is what he did. and yes i'm using the "help me' cream also. is that not something i pray god 'help me' & look he lead me to 'help me" & this oil it is removeing the dark spots & patches my pores are no more they are gone it is doing this slow, but everytime i use it i see more of my skin again & it is smoothing fine lines. as i cry telling you about my miracle from god & philosophy god only knows how happy your products have made me. the oil also removes my make up & a sweep or two with my finger my mascara is gone. if your using the pads & see more makeup & dirt comming off that is because the oil makes the old dead skin loose then the pads can remove it more (see these proudcts are designed to work togather,"one enhances the other") & the pads are awesome as well. their is a trick i have found to using this oil what i do is use purity cream cleanser first then this oil to remove mascara & rub in the oil in, let it set for a few, then wet the tips of my fingers with warm water shake off extra water then rub in curcles lightly till water has soked into my skin then i start to feel the dark places come loose but it only does this a little at a time. but trust me this oil works i love it. i won't to also thank your formulators at an awesome job. they have a god given talent, with out them we would not have this oil.god bless you philosophy & thanks for making me me again! « less
