Latest in Beauty Advent Calendar Opening - Day Eight!

Philosophy 'Purity' 3-in1 Facial Cleanser

The 'Marmite' cult product of the beauty world, you either love it or you hate it. I've been toying with myself whether just to take the plunge and risk spending a ridiculous amount on a product that I could potentially hate. Now I don't have a posh Clarisonic Mia 2 to pair this with, I just have good old fashioned water and my hands. It promises a lot of things:  dissolves dirt, oil and make up, while maintaining skins moisture levels, and it's gentle enough for sensitive skin and for use around the eyes. I'll give it that, it is very gentle. I, like a lot of people, like to wipe the majority of my make up off with a wipe before cleansing, so I'm a bit useless in letting you know how the dissolving went, but if it helps, it didn't appear to leave any stubborn mascara or foundation on. I'm an avid user of Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, I love the stuff, so any cleansing competitor had a lot of work to do anyway. But for some reason I just don't think that it has anything on Liz Earle, she seems to agree much better with my skin than this does. My skin felt a little bit greasy after? Has anyone else had that feeling? Well it just didn't feel clean. Also looking back on my Day 6 Product Review, I mentioned one or a mixture of these new products had given me a slight skin irritation, which I'm not happy about, whether it's this, I'm not too sure. I certainly don't think this is worth the price as it did no wonders to my skin, but I like the size, it will be perfect to take away with you.

What are your thoughts on this product? Are you a philosophy lover or hater?
