Bare minerals cleanser
I recently bought the Bare Essentials make up range and decided to have a go with the skin products. This appealed to me because it is a kind of cleanse and go product with no need to wipe off the face,
This promises to leave the skin leave skin feeling perfectly clean, hydrated and renewed. The cleanser contains the 100% Rare Minerals ActiveSoil complex (I don't know what this is but it sounds as though it should be good). As well as removing face make up it will apparently also remove eye make up, so this gets better and better as one product can do it all. It is designed for all skin types and it is also suitable for young skin; Little Miss has also been using it and it has had no adverse effects on her skin. It has no parabens synthetic fragrances or artificial oils so should be kind to most skins.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The product comes packaged in a box with information and instructions on the sides of the box. Inside the box is an information leaflet telling me all about the brand as well as giving further information on the benefits of the product. The bottle itself is white and quite clinical looking again with more information about the product. It has a pump action dispenser and a couple of full presses on the pump usually dispenses enough of the product to cleanse the face. The cleanser itself is white in colour and looks slightly creamy, which is good because to me this suggests that it wont dry out my skin.It has a very faint almost medicinal smell but nothing overpowering.
HOW TO USE THE PRODUCT...
The instructions on the bottle tell me to splash my face with water ad then massage the cleanser over the entire face to create a creamy lather. This creamy lather is easy to achieve and the product does feel really gentle as I massage it into my face. It should then be rinsed off using warm water and for best results used morning and night. There is another way to use it as the lady in the shop told us. If in a hurry, the product can be massaged into the skin and then wiped off using damp cotton wool. I have tried this several times and it really does still seem to get rid of all make up and traces of dirt.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
The product is available online and also in large department stores; I bought mine from Debenhams. It costs £15 for 177ml, which seems pricey but only a little is needed and it lasts for ages.
I really like this cleanser. It is easy to use and leaves my skin feeling really cleansed. I always moisturise after cleansing but on the odd occasion I haven't done so, this hasn't left my skin feeling as though it has dried out. It does as it says and also removes eye make up without stinging my eyes.
I will certainly be buying this again for myself and Little Miss.
Thanks for reading
