Philosophy’s cult-favourite cleansing line Purity Made Simple has two new additions: a micellar cleansing water and an exfoliating clay mask, both of which aid in extracting impurities from the skin. The cleanser contains micelle molecules that attract dirt in a magnet-like way, while the mask contains white clay and salicylic acid to unclog pores. “I get a lot of blackheads because I spray-tan quite a bit,” admits Philosophy partner Mario Dedivanovic, who started his career at Sephora when he was 17. “Philosophy is very nostalgic for me,” he adds. “It was one of the few skincare brands carried there at that time.” —S.
