~About the Product / What the Product Says To Do~
Everyone knows cleansing is the most important step in anyone's daily beauty routine. Cleansing is when all the dirt and grime from the day is wiped away and your products can work to their best.
That is why Clientele designed this gentle soy antioxidant face wash. It is for all skin types. It helps to soft, nourish, clean and protect the skin from free radicals.
It is deep cleansing, working deep into the pours.
Take off product with a sponge for best results, as a sponge exfoliates the skin at the same time.
Squeeze the product at the middle of the bottle. The lid is a press down lid so it is easy to operate. Be careful not to use to much as this is waste of product as a little goes a long way.
Mix with warm water in the palm of your hands and massage into face and neck avoiding the eye area. Remove with warm water or a sponge for better results (this way your face is getting exfoliated at the same time) making other products work better for you and you wont have dull looking skin.
Aloe and Vitamins A, B5, D and E
A full description of the ingredients are at the back of the packaging.
Texture to this product is creamy, light and runny. None drying on the skin.
This product comes in different size bottles the one I have is 255ml and it's a clear bottle so you can see the product and how much you have left.
The smell to me is clean and fresh, not to girly so it can be a unisex product.
I have been using this cleanser for about 2 years now and I am nearly at the end of my second bottle. It lasts a long time as you a very small amount.
The product itself is yellow in colour, more of a mustard. It is very creamy, very light; it is also a runny product as well when applied to the palm of my hand.
When mixed with a little warm water it foams very quickly, with this normally if anything foams that you apply to the face I associate it with soap and water and for it to be drying on the skin. This does not do that. Apply to the whole face (avoiding the eye area as with any product around the eye area it can sting). Massage into the face taking a bit of time and wiping away either with warm water or a sponge. Personally I use a sponge. Repeat this step especially at night to make sure all traces of makeup have been removed. There is no need to repeat it twice in the morning, once is significant.
While I massage it into my face and neck it feels light, creamy and moisturising while I know it is cleansing deep down. Once the product is removed my skin doesn't feel tight like it can with other cleansers it feels and looks clean, fresh and feels soft to the touch.
A 255ml bottle, which I have can last me a year even when using it twice in the evenings as you just need so little, so it is very economical and goes a long way on the face and neck.
Afterwards apply your usual toner and moisturiser and your ready to go.
I have never had any problems while using this product in face everything about it is good, I cant think of any bad points apart form the price but that is justified with the ingredients used and how long it lasts for. So all round a great product.

Clientele Elastology Gentle Soy Antioxidant Wash
This is a PH balanced cleanser for all skin types.
It deep cleans pores and leaves skin soft and smooth.
It contains Aloe, Soy Protein, Green Tea Soy Isoflavins and Vitamin A,E and B5.
I love this Cleanser it smells lovely, reminds me of the Bailey's drink and leaves my skin feeling really soft.
It removes what make up I wear really well, for eye make up I would use a separate remover as getting this cleanser near or in your eyes can sting slightly.
This cleanser is good as you can use it all over your body, I use it in the shower and wash my hands with it.
I got a little sponge with mine and it's great for slightly scrubbing the face with as this gentle exfoliates the skin at the same time.
Afterwards my skin is left feeling soft and moisturised with no tight feeling or dryness and it seems to really help with my open pores on my cheeks.
