Skin Care Review: Philosophy Purity one-step facial cleanser

by Cheri Lauters

Adverse Effects

Easy to use for cleansing and exfoliating skin

dries out the skin, especially the top layers

I used this product twice a day, morning and evening, for approximately one year. It seemed to do a good job of cleansing my skin and preventing build-up of dead skin. My skin was clear and clean looking without blemishes. I did have some reddening of the skin around my cheeks over time. What I didn't notice was how dry my skin was becoming and that wrinkles around my mouth and eyes were becoming deeper. I thought it was due to natural aging. When I finally had a facial done by an esthetician, she told me I should use products that hydrate my skin more. I had also developed tiny white spots over my lower face around my chin which she thought were due to the top layer of my skin drying out. I have been using some samples of more hydrating cleansers and lotions and notice softening of the wrinkles and a glow to my skin that looks much healthier.

At 61 years of age, I need to use products to keep my skin hydrated.
