I got so much skincare at Christmas I wasn't 100% sure what to do with it all, however I will always find a use for it! I had just ran out of my Origins Checks and Balances cleanser that I wasn't that bothered about repurchasing so I welcomed this new cleanser with open arms.
Estee Lauder's Perfectly Clean Cleanser retails for around £22 which is quite standard for high end cleanser's. I hadn't really heard any hype surrounding this product so I probably wouldn't have purchased it myself, but I love receiving things as presents as it gives you an opportunity to try out products you wouldn't have necessarily picked for yourself!
(I accidentally binned the bottle so apologies for the boring stock photograph!)
This is a 2 in 1 foaming cleanser/mask that slightly reminded me of my days of being obsessed with the Neutrogena 2 in 1 mask... didn't everyone have that? Anyways, when mixed with water this creates a relatively thin froth – sounds really bizarre – and you massage it in! I usually spend around 2 minutes doing this just to ensure its really getting into your skin. I also tend to use either a face brush or a muslin cloth, with this particular cleanser I was using a face brush from Sally's that I bought years ago.
I really like this cleanser, it gives you that “clean” feeling which I know some people don't like but I actually really do! It could leave my skin feeling a little tight immediately afterwards but after applying my toner and moisturiser it wasn't really noticeable. I felt like it really did clear my skin up, although near the end of the product I felt like my skin was going a bit rubbishy looking? Not entirely sure if this was hormones or other factors, but sometimes I do feel like that after using the same cleanser for a certain amount of time? Is that just me?! Overall I would recommend this product, all be it not my favourite cleanser of all time but it is definitely in my top 5! It's a really nice product to use that gives your skin a good clean, especially when you leave it on for a little while as a mask!
Hope this post was helpful :)
