Philosophy
Purity made simple is the first product I've ever bought by Philosophy and I think it'll be my last. From the very beginning it made my skin itch and it felt like I had acid on it. I used it for 4 days and this morning I thought "i'll try it one last time". Well, when I looked at my itching skin in the mirror one hour later my skin was red, looking horrible.

So it's been 8 hours since I used it but my skin is still itching (but I don't itch back.. but it is hard).

Have ANYONE an idea on what to do? It says this product works on dry, sensitive skin but I really doubt it. I've had to skip put moizteriser on because my skin is so irritated that everything hurts.

I have to add that I've tried a lot of products and have NEVER EVER had any problems. This is the first time

And because how I feel and look I'm staying in this evening and feel sorry and hope this'll stop soon.

Im not familiar with the product so im not sure if its supposed to itch/burn...Does it contain acetylic acid by any chance?

The way you describe it, it seems like youve had an alergic reaction ..If thats the case you have to stop using it, it wount get any better........

I've used Philosophy products before and I have never experienced any reaction like you have. In my opinion you are most likely having an allergic reaction. I personaly enjoy Philosophy products, they are rich and really good. Infact yesterday I bought their Shampoo, it is nicely scented Cinamon Bun. Oh God I sound so gay lol.

I've never used the make-up, but the scent "falling in love" smells good.

I do like the make up. I love the lipstick called vacation, it is creamy sheer pink. I love the little black book make up set too. It is perfect to throw in your bag and the shadows go on really well. I do not like any of the other products, I do not feel that they work.

I always see their presentations on QCV and I am tempted to order them. Has anyone used their products lately? and how do you like them?

I got their Exfoliate kit today and used Greatest Love. My skin has never felt smoother. I was a bit schocked actually by how soft my skin is Haven't tried the Great Mystery yet.
You should read reviews on makeupalley.com

I love their On A Clear Day blemish serum. It dries up the pimple fast.

Yesterday I used their Microdelivery Mini Peel Pads for the first time... My skin feels amazing today!
