Decleor Cleansing Water
Advantages: No irritation for sensitive skin
Disadvantages: Does not remove make-up on its own
Cleansing water is described by Decleor as a make-up remover for face and eyes, ideal for sensitive and reactive skin.
Frankly I do not find it effective enough to remove make-up on its own, but, after experimenting I did find probably an unintentional benefit. If used after cleansing and toning it does remove residue which is surprisingly left behind by regular toner which you would not normally see.
I tend to remove make-up in the evening with separate cleansing and toning products and use this in the morning as a one step cleanser, when there is no make up to be removed, or after using a facial wash.
The clear liquid contains Rose, Sweet Clover and Mallow Essential Waters 2.2% along with Camomile, Neroli, Lavender and Marjoram Essential Oils 0.1% and, although it is again stated by Decleor is fragrance free it does have a pleasant smell (perhaps derived only from the ingredients) which makes it a pleasure to use.
You only need to apply a small amount to a cotton wool pad and seep over the face and neck, including eyes. No rinsing needed. After use your skin feels fresh, looks bright and feels really soft and slightly moisturised with no tightness.
It's quite pricey if you buy/use it as an additional cleansing product. Normal price is £21.50 for 250ml from Decleor but it can currently be purchased from Cheapsmells.com at £14.95 for 250ml or £17.95 for 400ml, but it will last ages. I've had a 250mil size for around 3 months and still have half left.
Packaging is disappointing given the price tag. It comes in a rather cheap feeling plastic bottle with a plastic flip lid. Something a little more substantial would probably make it more appealing.
For me this is an excellent addition to my cleansing routine, especially when time is of the essence at 5.30am when getting ready for work, but I would not use it as a replacement for my existing routine.
Overall: Not sufficiently effective to remove makeup on its own therefore expensive so you would have to decide if buying this product is justified. Nice product to use though and definitely no irritation.
Summary: Nice as an additional cleansing product but not as a standalone product
