This was one of the few products I had left.
So, I have been using Philosophy for this entire time, and I don't notice any problematic areas of my skin, but my face also never feels "scrubbed". It bothers me sometimes, especially on hot days or when I use a lot of products.
The texture is so smooth, thick, and creamy.
The most important thing about this cleanser: you only need a LITTLE bit. When I used this before, I was cleansing my face by hand and I would use about a dime size. Now I am using the Clarisonic and I use about a quarter size of Purity, so when I used too much of this, I could probably use it on my entire body there was so much. It lathers like shaving foam, but it is really lathery. But it does what it says- it rinses right off!
This cleanser gave my face that sqeaky-clean (yes, I tested that lol) feeling, and I did experience some tightening feeling as well. I love this cleanser, but I would probably only use it once a week since it does have a tendency to dry out my skin. I can see it being beneficial for any skin type, really, and I would totally recommend any of Clinque's skincare. I actually miss my 3-steps, so I am going to go back to those as soon as I get an order in.
