Review: Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleansing Cloths

Today I'm going to be doing a review of these Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleansing Cloths. That is quite a long name for this product! I've already used up about half of the package so I feel like it's time to share my thoughts on these wipes.

This is old packaging with 45 wipes and I bought these at Sephora. The new packaging has only 30 wipes and is $15. Not the best deal in my opinion, but I've had my package for ages so I honestly can't remember how much I paid for them. I will say, even though I've had this package for a long time, the wipes are still very wet, which is pretty amazing. I do make sure to tightly seal up the package and I store it upside down so the wipe I pull out next is still wet.

So these are basically just your normal makeup remover wipe that you use at night, or you can swipe it over your face for regular cleansing. It says these are good for all skin types and they're very gentle on the skin. These do remove my face makeup nicely, but not my eye makeup. It actually burn my eyes a bit, so I have to use an eye makeup remover first, then when I use the wipe, lightly go over my eyes to remove any excess eye makeup. Other than burning my eyes a bit, these are pretty gentle on the skin. They also feel a bit exfoliating as well, which to me helps to remove makeup a bit better.

After I use these wipes, my skin feels soft and clean, but I still always do my skincare routine of cleansing, toning, moisturizing, etc. Once in a rare while when I feel really lazy, I'll just use one of these and go to bed and I still feel like my face is clean, but I do notice the next morning that I have a little bit of makeup left on my skin, which isn't good! This is why I'm going to say this isn't the best makeup remover wipe to use by itself. I'd recommend doing your whole skincare routine afterwards.

I am happy with these wipes as a whole, but I might not repurchase these because there are so many options in the drugstore to choose from that are probably better at removing makeup, at a fraction of the price. I'm still a big fan of Philosophy products, though! You know how much I love those awesome shower gels, and their other skincare is amazing as well! 

What are some of your favorite makeup wipes?

  3. That is pretty steep for wipes! I usually get mine from the dollar store and they get the job done. They're surprising soft and work decent. :)

  5. Philosophy is leaving the country (Philippines) and had these for sale. Sad I passed up on it :( I'm in need of decent wipes! I think it was selling for a third of the price you mentioned :)
