If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know by now that I am a huge fan of Philosophy (you can read my past reviews here and here). I’ve heard so many good things about Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil that I decided to give it a try.
I was a bit hesitant at first because this is a cleansing oil and I was worried that it would make me break out. Thankfully, the oil-free mineral formula did no such thing. The cleanser is applied on a dry face which does take some getting used to, but the oil itself feels so luxurious and moisturizing on, that you forget that you haven’t used an ounce of water. The mineral cleansing oil literally melts away makeup, leaving your skin clean, soft and balanced. The oil can also be used to remove eye makeup, although I haven’t tried it yet on my eyes. My only complaint is that I can’t really use it with my Clarisonic MIA because I prefer to use cleansers that lather up a bit, because I feel they work a bit better when combined with the MIA. For the days I am giving my Clarisonic a rest, this is an amazing cleanser that deep cleans my face while maintaining my skin’s natural moisture levels at the same time.
