- The company's is one of its most popular products and I've been using it consistently for years.
- The gentle cleanser works for all skin types, never dries out skin, and can be used daily.
- Travel bottles start at , and the standard eight-ounce size is . The largest is 32 ounces for , so bigger the bottle you get, the more you'll save.
There are few companies with cult followings quite as intense or as far reaching as . I have a theory on why, and yes, while it has mostly to do with how well its products work, it also has to do with the brand ethos and its packaging.
On each bottle of 's products, you'll find a paragraph of text with some small reflection on it — a short meditation on the literalphilosophybehind whatever your using, and how it ties in to the greater rituals and traditions of our shared humanity. Philosphy's products force you to pause, appreciate what's before you, and take a second to care for your body in some way.
This is, most likely, what draws people to it — but what keeps people coming back is how well the products work.
One of the brand's most popular lines, , features a collection of gentle moisturizers, wipes, and a that are barely scented, a departure from the rest of the brand's lines that are largely similar save for the fragrances. The specifically is one of Philosophy's hero products (it has over 150,000 "hearts" on Sephora with over 11,000 reviews and 4.5 stars), and one of my personal favorites.
Selecting a face wash will almost always come down to your skin type, but what makes special is that it's formulated to work for everyone.
For me, that means it's the ideal year-round cleanser that works as well for my dry winter skin as it does for my slightly dewier summer skin. The formula is never drying, nor is it so hydrating it leaves a film of what feels like lotion on my skin after using it. It's just an all-around great cleanser that can remove grime, leave your skin feeling soft and even, all without irritating even the most sensitive skin.
It's formulated without phthalates, but it does contain parabens, in case that's a setback for you. I know I should probably be more attuned to the ingredients in my skincare products, but I generally just want what's going to work best for my skin — and that's why I've been loyal to the for so long. It helps with my redness, gently cleans out my pores, and removes even my most stubborn makeup when paired with the .
As part of the , you'll also find supplemental products like eye gel, a pore mask, lightweight moisturizer, cleansing cloths, and makeup remover. Though I've never tested them personally, I can confidently assume they're all wonderful, considering that I've never met a product from Philosophy that I didn't love (the is one of my other favorites).
As a long-time fan who's been using pretty consistently for the past few years, I highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a great face wash. It's simplicity is exactly what makes it so special, and though it's a little more expensive than what you may be used to from the drugstore, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to say it's worth the price.
