Philosophy Review: Purity Made Simple, Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash, Hope in a Jar

I have been using the same skincare regiment for a little while now with Philosophy products. I thought I would share a review of these products with you. I have strange skin lol! It is oily and dry at the same time, I have large pores and I break out quite easily. It has been a constant challenge since I was a teenager to keep my breakouts under control and my skin looking decent. These three philosophy products have done me well but I am still on the search for that miracle product….if it even exists!!






Purity Made Simple ($26 CAD at Sephora):
I use this product morning and night. I really like the feel and it has a nice light pleasant smell. My face definitely feels clean after using it. The product does not seem harsh on my skin so I would say it is suitable for sensitive skin. I really do like this face wash but I haven't noticed much of a difference in the size of my pores. It did however keep breakouts to a minimum. A little bit goes a long way so it is worth the money.









Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash ($27 CAD at Sephora):
I only use this product at night. Because I have sensitive skin I found it to be too harsh to use twice a day (but some may be able to). It doesn't have much of a smell at all. My face feels clean and smooth after using this product. It is a little bit gritty (but in a good way). Again I didn't notice much of a difference in the size of my pores and there was no change in the oiliness of my skin. A little bit goes a long way so it is worth the money.










Hope in a Jar ($52 CAD a Sephora):
I usually just used this in the morning but sometimes at night too. It has a very light smell. It is a non-greasy formula and dries really fast. This is a good thing for me because of my oily skin. Although I like this product and it does provide moisture I find it to be a little expensive.






Overall I really like these Philosophy products because they are great for sensitive skin and they don't seem harsh. I think they would work really well on a lot of skin types. If you have complicated skin (like me!), I would still give these products a try. I am happy with them but just not blown away. I will be forever searching for that perfect skincare regiment! If you have any recommendations let me know!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I think your skin looks great. The best results (smaller pores, less oily) i've had was before my wedding when I consistently used cleanser, toner and mousturizer routine from the vichy normaderm line. I need to start washing my face at night... bad habit.
