“ Brand: MAC Cosmetics / Type: Facial Wash / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
Today I'm going to review the MAC cremewash. I got this as a sample size pot but I have had enough use of it to test it out. I hope you enjoy this review.
The product normally comes in a plain white tube with a black screw on lid. It has MAC and the product name on the front and ingredients and details on how to apply on the back. A pea sized amount is ideal for my face as it is very thick and lathers up very nicely when mixed with water. The cremewash is white in colour but has a very slight pearly glow to it which really lights up your face.
The scent is very nice but I cannot quite pick out what it is. To me it smells ever so slightly citrusy and it smells clean if you know what I mean. It also smells like the kind of body butters you can get in shops sometimes which don't smell of one thing and smell of a general scent.
The cremewash is meant to restore the skins natural lipid balance and have a super hydrating formula too. I really like this wash and I use it in the morning and evening. It really makes my face feel very fresh and bright, ready to start the day. The tube costs £14.50 and has 100ml in it. I only use a tiny amount so it would last me probably quite a few months. For some of you it may be quite expensive but for those of us who like to lavish our skin then its just right !
Have you tried MAC Cremewash? What do you think of it ?
Over the years my make up obsessions have changed somewhat, I've had obsessions with both Benefit and Clinique but most recently with Mac make up... as you can see "loyalty" is not a word that features in my vocabulary when it comes to make up brands. Now in an effort not to bankrupt myself I always try to use up old products before buying new ones and I finally finished off my Clinique face wash last week which meant it was time to buy a new one. I selected Mac's Cremewash which comes in a white, quite clinical looking tube that stands upright on a black screw on lid. It clearly showed the brand and product name in black on the front while information regarding application and ingredients was outlined on the back.
To dispense the cremewash you simply need to unscrew the lid and gently squeeze the tube and you'll find it comes out really easily. A pea sized amount is more than enough for me to cleanse my face and upper neck too. The cremewash itself is white in colour and has an almost pearlescent glow about it which makes it seem to illuminate in the light. It's quite thick in terms of consistency and isn't at all like Clinique's liquid soap that I'd used prior to this, it's like a thick face mask and isn't at all runny. It has a wholesome smell about it and as it contains Muru Muru butter this is very evident, in fact in terms of smell and consistency I'd associate it with some sort of naturally scented body butter. Overall it's got a very pleasant smell indeed.
To apply it simply spread it over your skin and you'll find it lathers up quite easily, it feels quite thick when going on and covers my face in an almost white clay like gel - in fact it reminds me of a clay face mask! To remove the cremewash simply splash water over your face and massage it off with your hands gently, it does take about thirty seconds or so to get it all over as the clay like consistency seems to stick to my skin. My skin is left feeling thoroughly cleansed, smoothed and softened - there's no skin dryness or tightening at all even with daily usage. I tend to use this just at night to remove my make up and any impurities from the day. I find I still need to use eye make up remover but the cremewash will remove everything else quite efficiently.
The cremewash is advertised as helping to restore the skin's natural lipid balance and as a super hydrating formula too. Now while I'm not sure about the first claim I would agree with the second, I suffer from dry skin on my face and I've experienced no problems while using this at all. It leaves me skin feeling soothed (from the shot of caffeine it contains) and moisturised (from the advanced moisture complex it contains) too. Overall I'd thoroughly recommend Mac's cremewash and would be giving it the full five stars if it wasn't for the one downside... the price. Now this currently retails at £14.50 for a 100ml tube which arguably is quite expensive, I estimate with daily usage mine will last me about four to five months... ah the price of beauty!
Thanks for reading.
