I have stopped using it and may try it again during the summer. Purity Made Simple “deeply cleanses, tones, and removes make-up” according to the label on the back but I still felt the need to use toner afterwards. However, it did do a pretty good job of removing my make-up. The things I liked most about this cleanser are the “foaminess”, the clean scent and the packaging. I probably …
