Review: philosophy purity

 I have been really loving this cleanser for the past couple of weeks! I have been using it with my Clarisonic Mia and the consistency is pretty much spot on for me with is creating a slight foam without being over the top which makes my face feel lovely and clean.

I have given a brief description in a recent video but I thought this really deserved a review all of its own!
I was quite afraid of purchasing this after reading a comment online about it smelling like lemon pledge but I can 100% confirm it doesn’t smell like that at all! It does have a slight lemony smell and if you really take a strong nose in bottle kind of sniff then it has an ever so slight chemical smell but not enough to put me off using it however I’m not a massive fan of the scent as I’m not a big lover of lemon but hey ho!

The consistency is quite creamy but slippy and takes a bit to foam it up which is a huge plus with a Clarisonic as you avoid the foam up the nose scenario which is always a good thing.

It leaves my skin feeling clean but not stripped although it does feel a tiny bit tight after my face has dried so if you have very dry skin then maybe this wouldn’t be for you but you oily/combo skin types this is definitely worth a go!

You can pick this up from Boots although my local store didn’t stock it but it is available online. This bottle costs £18 for £236.6ml but you can by a smaller travel sized bottle for about £8.

    Not a fan of this cleanser as there's too many nasties in it for my liking, but atleast it works for you! 🙂
