I recently hitched on the Philosophy hype and cult bandwagon and bought a bottle of the Made Simple One-Step Cleanser. I’m usually a cleanser snob/nerd so trying this brand was a new experience for me. Was it hot or croc? Read on to find out.
I bought the 90mL bottle for $18 and I reckon that was a superb price compared to what my snobbery determined I was paying for other higher end products previously. To be honest, with such a reasonable price tag, I wasn’t expecting much.
Philosophy say it’s a one step makeup remover and cleanser but habits of old and a dogged determination to have pristinely clean skin means I still do a makeup remover step first and then cleanse. Philosophy reckon this product not only cleanses but also tones and hydrates. Again, my ancient habits mean I still tone after cleansing.
I’ve been using this product with my Clarisonic (my holy grail cleansing tool for every day) for about three weeks now each evening (I use my Paula’s Choice Resist Cleanser every morning) and I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised. It has a light fragrance (which is Ok given it’s only on the skin for a short time) and it’s light and creamy. It certainly leaves my skin feeling cleansed and refreshed but not stripped, tight and dry.
Is it hot or a croc? I quite like it. I’m not obsessed with it and I’ll probably compare it to other cleansers but for now, it’s staying on my bathroom sink and I’ll keep using it. Any product that cleanses my skin without stripping it, drying it out or making me break out, is certainly worth hanging on to.
I’d be keen to hear about your most loved cleansing product. Please comment below and share with me your fav cleanser.
Smiles and hugs,
