Dupe for Philosophy's Purity?

with 3 comments
This past month, I received Philosophy's Purity one step cleanser in my Birchbox.  I was really excited to try it because so many people have raved about how good it is!

It's a natural product (no harsh chemicals), which is fantastic for those of you with sensitive skin.  It claims to wash away dirt, oil, makeup, even waterproof mascara.  I've been using it with my Olay Pro-X spinning brush and have gotten fantastic results!  My skin has been transformed from dull and lifeless to glowing and clear in just one use!  Now, the downside is that it's too expensive for my taste.  I mean $20 for an 8oz bottle of face cleanser?  Come on.  I'm starting to run out of the sample they gave me, so I've been on the lookout for something that gives the same result and is easier on my wallet.

Behold.. I've found it.  It's the Neutrogena Naturals Cleanser.  Both have a light, fresh scent.  Both have the ability to remove all traces of makeup.  It's even gentle on my eyes.  It doesn't strip my skin's natural oils and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean.  Not dry like other drugstore products do.  Pair this cleanser with the Olay Pro-X Brush, and you will have the best skin of your life.  Just be careful...this formula likes to foam when used with the Pro-X brush.  I got suds alllll over my mirror the other day!  :)  And the best part...the Neutrogena cleanser is only about $7 at drugstores.  YES!  You're skin will thank you for it!  :)

I will say this though...I absolutely love both cleansers.  if I HAD to choose one (money no issue) I would go with the Purity.  Reason being is that I feel like it gets my skin just a tad cleaner.  Not by much, which makes the Neutrogena a fantastic alternative.  It really comes down to just a matter of budget and personal preference!  :)

Stay Gorgeous.

    Purpose cleanser is really good too. Around 5-7 bucks. Super mild. No toner or anything in it but it does great!
