Philosophy Cleanser?

So I've been really interested in trying Philosophy's Purity Made Simple cleanser and my question is this: can I use it in place of my cleansing oil? I know it's a non-foaming cleanser but my worry is that if i use this and then go in again with my regular foam cleanser, it might dry out my skin. Any thoughts/reviews?


Thanks guys 😄

Re: Philosophy Cleanser?

Purity is a good second cleanser. It's not a replacement for cleansing oil. If you want to try it, it should take the place of your foaming cleanser, otherwise you will run the risk of drying out your skin from over-cleansing. 

Re: Philosophy Cleanser?

It's a good cleanser, and it does lather up like soap.  It don't know if it would be a substitute for cleansing oil.  If you were to use this, then a foaming wash, you'd probably over dry your skin.  I highly recommend it as a face wash though, and there are mini sizes on sale right now if you want to give it a try without committing to a huge bottle.
