This $24 Facial Cleanser Has Been Selling Out at Sephora Since 1996

Updated 02/08/18

As far as cult skincare brands go, Philosophy has reigned supreme since it launched back in 1996. Topping ts list of best-selling products is the Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser ($24), which reserved a place in every '90s girl's skincare routine and has amassed a casual 10,758 reviews on Sephora, 9550 of which are four or five stars.

As Refinery29 reports, the cleanser has been a best seller in the face-wash category at both Sephora and Ulta for more than a decade, garnering another 3318 reviews on the latter beauty site. It's remained so popular over the years that Philosophy has released several extensions to the Purity line in order to meet demand.

Per the reviews, the product's secret weapon apparently lies in its versatility. The cleanser hydrates, tones, balances, and clears the skin of makeup and oil, all in just one cleanse. Best of all, it's formulated for normal, oily, dry, sensitive, and combination skin, so there's a pretty low risk factor if you're looking to try a new cleanser.
