Dr Dennis Gross All-in-One Cleanser with Toner

Have you been searching for that cream cleanser which helps to remove makeup and does not leave a film after cleansing?

Well guys, this is it! I have tried a few cream cleansers (not all since some are oil based – ah congestion!), and this one is one that I have bought continually over the past 2 years.

I use this only at night time, and I will double cleanser with it or with other cleansers. But it is one which leaves the skin soft, cleansed and not stripped.  I think it does so with its smart formulation which includes a toner in the mix, so skin is left nice and soft after cleansing.  The texture is a non oily cream cleanser, see below:

Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates and plumps skin Vitamins A,C and E: Provide potent antioxidants that protect against free radicals Green Tea Extract: Protects against free radicals and environmental toxins Witch Hazel: Soothes the skin

It contains a whole bunch of good ingredients for the skin such as (below is excerpt from website):

Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates and plumps skin
Vitamins A,C and E: Provide potent antioxidants that protect against free radicals
Green Tea Extract: Protects against free radicals and environmental toxins
Witch Hazel: Soothes the skin

The use is so easy – following the instructions on the site, I apply directly on dry skin and massage to dissolve the days impurities and rinse off with tepid water. Dr Gross’ instructions as extracted from website is:

Apply to dry face with clean, dry hands.
Allow the product to work best for you by massaging face gently:
10 seconds – dry skin 30 seconds – oily skin
Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
For morning and night use.

I normally get the 180ml size (6oz) but if it were available in the mega 480ml (18oz) I’d get that for sure!

Have you tried this cleanser – what are your thoughts? Or have you used any other cream cleanser which doesn’t leave that filminess – I’d love to hear what you’re using!

Enjoy

Sunday Riley Brightening Enzyme Water Cream aka Tidal Cream

Sunday Riley tidal brightening enzyme water cream

Under review today we have the Sunday Riley Tidal Cream.

Not available in Australia, I purchased from Space NK.

I have been using this for most of this year, so about 10 months and I can not rate it highly enough.

This gel-creme or what beauty world now call these as “water creams” is a gem for anyone with dry skin.

Seasonality: This has worked for me in winter, giving me a dewy makeup look. In summer it might produce a bit too much glow but will quench dehydrated skin.

Scent: very light, natural scent, reminds me of exotic flora – keep in mind it does have bird of paradise extract in it!

Texture: gel-creme, that gives skin a dewy glow – see images below.

Ingredients: oil free – perfect for anyone who gets congested easily. Has your usual hyrdrating suspects such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, jojoba esters.

As to the whitening? I haven’t seen any whitening/brightening of my skin despite have the alphra arbutin – but the hydration and lightness I get from this was my primary driver to purchase this. And for me, this cream does its job – to hydrate.

Summary: 10/10 – a must have for anyone who craves deep hydration during the day.

I hope this has helped anyone wanting to try this but just not sure of whether to take the dive.  It is worth every cent for me!

ENJOY!

CAUDALIE INSTANT DETOX MASK

What can I say, it is fully used up!

I didn’t use this as a face mask as it wasn’t working for me- but waste not, it was the PERFECT body clay mask for DIY at home. The hip-pocket friendly way to pamper yourself without  spending a fortune or taking too much time out!

The scent is a gorgeous LAVENDER which transports me to lavender fields in Provence.

The perfect indulgent moment on a Sunday afternoon. Just give yourself a quick body brush – to help stimulate lymph flow, mask up, grab a book and make sure there’s sunlight coming through into the bathroom!

et voila – instant detox chez vous!
