Bliss Steep Clean Cleanser
Advantages: Only a small amount needed
Disadvantages: Doesn't remove makeup well, doesn't help with blocked pores, strange scent, expensive
I can't afford to spend a lot on skincare items so whenever it comes to birthday or Christmas my sister always gets me some lovely expensive things to try. The last time she bought me a gift it included this Bliss Steep Clean Cleansing Milk which cost around £20 for a 245ml bottle.
The bottle is made of a thick white plastic which makes it seem high quality but make sit difficult to see how much you have left. It has quite a clinical look about it which is a bit boring really. It has a flip top lid which makes it easier and more convenient to use. The lid fastens nice and tight so you don't have to worry about spillage if you're taking it away with you.
The cleanser is really strange, it's very runny and an odd blue colour and weird consistency. What's strange about it is that although it's really runny it has an almost sticky feel to it that you would only expect from thicker substances. It also has a very odd scent that I can't make my mind up about, it's very fruity and quite fresh, but also quite acidic which is what makes me unsure as to whether I like it or not.
The milk should be massaged into dry or damp skin and then rinsed off. I've tried it both ways and I don't think it makes any difference whether you use it damp or dry, it still does exactly the same. It's so runny it just glides over the skin as you massage it, and you don't need a lot at all to cover your face. It doesn't lather at all though which makes it feel to me like it's not really doing much, but I guess that's just because I'm used to foaming gel cleansers. It does feel nice to massage onto my skin, and it rinses off easily.
After using it my skin does feel quite clean and fresh but not as much so as with any of my other cleansers. My skin looks shine-free and fresh but apart from that there's not really anything to say about it. If I have been wearing makeup I don't find that this removes it very well and loads comes off onto my cotton pad when I use my toner afterwards.
I have now been using this regularly for a few months and I haven't seen any noticeable difference in my skin. It's supposed to help unblock pores and get rid of blackheads etc. but if anything I'm sure I have more blocked pores than before I started using this. I've used cleansers for less than a fiver that had better results than this so I definitely won't be buying this one again!
Summary: Not worth the money at all
