To learn more about this fabulous campaign, find the inside scoop on Philosophy’s hero products (AKA Melissa and Vanessa’s new skincare saviours) and the brand’s plan for their amazing skincare minibus ahead…

Introducing: Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Series

What’s the secret behind beautiful, healthy skin? According to Melissa Th’ng, the answer lies in one power-packed lineup of skincare goodies—the Philosophy Purity Made Simple Series. Based on the philosophy that your skincare should reset your skin to its purest, most feel-good state (AKA bouncy, glowing, and makeup-optional), the Purity Made Simple series has been created to help you achieve just that. 

While the lineup is extensive, all you really need for better, happier skin are the three hero products: The Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, the Purity Made Simple Pore Minimising Serum, and the Purity Made Simple Ultra-Light Moisturiser. These products make up the foundation for a thorough, effective skincare routine that will transform your skin with time. How? Let’s break each product down:


Step 1: The Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser

Skip the stripping formulas and opt for America’s #1 cleanser instead. Created for normal-to-dry skin types, this cleanser tones and hydrates the skin to leave you feeling comfortably clean. The paraben, phthalate, formaldehyde, and sulfate-free formula delivers the most gentle yet thorough cleanse possible, while meadowfoam seed oil extract works to hydrate and nourish the skin. In other words, it’s your new everyday go-to, for morning and night. Better yet, it’s quite the multitasker too. BURO’s best tip: Use a pea-sized amount to tackle stubborn makeup buildup on your beauty tools and applicators!


Step 2: The Purity Made Simple Pore Minimising Serum

Say goodbye to enlarged pores and breakouts because this serum is tackling it all. Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of pores both instantly and over time, salicylic acid is the powerhouse in this formulation, working to clarify the skin. Then, lentil seed extract, lilac cell extract, and lemon myrtle extract add an extra pore-tightening effect while reducing excess sebum production and clogged pores. The result? A balanced and perfected complexion that looks so good, you won’t need a filter!

Step 3: Purity Made Simple Ultra-Light Moisturiser

The final step is what seals the deal—this moisturiser delivers 24-hour hydration without the sticky, heavy feel of a rich cream. Formulated with a blend of vitamin C and E derivatives, a Philosophy-exclusive green tea antioxidant complex, and sustainably-sourced meadowfoam and cold-pressed chia seed oil, it protects the skin against free radicals while strengthening, hydrating and nourishing it from within. Ideal for any skin type (including sensitive skin!), it’s the perfect all-in-one product for a radiant, dewy and smooth complexion. 

And there you have it—the perfect basic skincare routine for better, brighter skin. Of course, once you’ve got the foundations sorted, you can then play around with the rest of the products in Philosophy’s Purity line to curate the perfect routine for your skin goals.
