Cleansers:Part 2

My daily routine includes 98% double cleansing and when I’m lazy a makeup wipe followed with micellar water on a cotton. The following morning, I’ll massage a quarter size of  the dermalogica pre cleanse balm and another cleanser because I can’t bear the thought of my morning face with any leftover makeup…I worry about clogged pores, acne sunspots wrinkles…im just at that age now. Oh how I wished I was still 19–

I don’t know why but this spring, everyone’s giving out cleansers, nice ones that I had never tried.  Today I’ll write about 2 of those.

Kiehls calendula deep cleansing foaming wash: Very clean light scent almost herbal, the cleanser is almost gel like its thicker and clear, I initially used too much I recommend using a little bit because it does foam and the end results no feeling of stripping or dryness. It is not for dry/combination which is my skin type but I absolutely loved it. Rating this one a 9/10 price is decent, feels nice.

Peter Thomas Roth water drench cloud cream cleanser: No scent, thicker and richer texture, you can remove your makeup or so it says I went on the safe side and removed the thick layers of makeup with my KGD wipes first…hours later I read the instructions where they tell you to mix it with water. No feeling of dryness it reminds me of a cleansing balm but maybe mixed with a cleansing milk…its unique and it felt nice on my skin. I did not use anything after this except for a moisturizer. I rate this 8/10


Products I Absolutely Adore.

I was in a funk for what seemed like forever but great products always cheer me up. I am a big fan of the sister channel of QVC is it beauty iQ i anyway long story short, I ended up purchasing two things after seeing different episodes.

The first item I bought was the Philosophy purity made simple cleansing cloths. I always loved the cleanser so I thought it sounds great. Every time I wipe my face with it I feel clean. I dont know if its really taking off everything but dont generally expect to get everything off with a wipe. I think its really just taking off what you can without being abrassive on your skin and then getting your zzzs that matter. The scent is clean and wonderful just like the cleanser and overall its no Koh Gen Do but its very good. I would repurchase! I’d rate this one an 8.5/10 It lost a wee bit of points because it could seem more wet but maybe its made less moist to be more exfoliating who knows.

Now onto the Peter Thomas Roth firmx peeling gel exfoliant-no scent to it really maybe a natural fruit like scent nothing that stands out its not grittier like most exfoliators very velvetty when it comes out smooths on nice and let me tell you the instant gratification I felt when my old skin was resurfacing without the burn…so great. I like to use it in a circular motion and repeat for 30 seconds then leave it on for 1-2 minutes and rinse it off. If I was to rate this product I’d give it 10/10. Its so gentle but effective. Huge tube so this will be my main cold season exfoliator.
