A no cleanse gelee that melts makeup away – Too good to be true?
I recently started a new position at work, and the hours meant I was getting home in the early morning – with that I was getting lazy at taking my makeup off. After a 11.5 hour shift, I just want to sleep! But, I broke myself out of this “skincare, don’t care” mindset by investing in a no-rinse facial cleanser, ain’t nobody got time for rinsing at 6am. I stumbled upon this one in my local supermarket and was curious about the gelee and hydration is boasted to provide – as well as the ease of use it described.
I enjoyed the ease of use the bottle has, the pump allows the correct amount to be distributed on the cotton pad so I know I’m not wasting product by over pouring. The gelee milk is a very strange consistency – it reminds me of those jelly sweets you get in the straws that you squeeze out. It has a sweet, somewhat fruity scent which is pleasant, although this could be the cause of the sticky feeling the residue leaves.
This gelee milk leaves a sticky, mask like residue – which means for me, it is not completely rinse free as the feel of it this residue me feel uneasy. Although I must add it is nothing a quick wipe over with toner on a pad cant fix! It can easily remove my Rodial Waterproof Mascara in a few wipes along with my heavy duty foundation that has been set with my Slay All Day setting spray – which is a really good feat – considering that some of my rinse off cleansers can’t clear it off completely.
The hyaluronic acid is also a big plus for me – the added hydration this cleanser supplies has cut my dry skin related breakouts so much! I tend to get dry cracked skin on my chin and nose which causes spots – but my skins been supple and hydrated since I’ve started using this in my skincare routine.
Bottom Line: A silky smooth cleaner which removes even waterproof mascara!
