I've been sticking to cleansing creams as my morning cleanse for a good while now. I've loved my Aesop Cleansing Cream and stuck to that for a long time, but did finally decide I wanted to venture out and try some of the other offerings out there. I got this new cleanser by Clarins as a gift a little while back and so naturally I moved on to this when I finished my Aesop tube a few months back.
Clarins' Cleansing Cream come in a large nude pink tube with a white cap, where you squeeze out the product. The tube comes with 200ml of cleanser and retails for 25 GBP. That's a bit more than the typical 150ml, but you do get a lot of 200ml tubes as well so it's still pretty average. I've been using it every morning for about 2 months now and I've still got over half left in the tube.
You need about the size of your big fingernail to wash your whole face. I apply this to a dry face every morning, massage it across my face, over my eyes and down my neck before rinsing it off with water. The consistency of the cleanser is thin and spreads across the skin much like a very light cream would. I'll say it's kind of "airy" and then you'll either get what I mean or you won't, I just don't know how else to describe it.
The cleanser has a gorgeous scent. It says on the tube the cleanser has moringa, mango and shea butter and I guess that's what I'm smelling. The scent is kind of floral, but it's still fresh and a bit fruity - I guess that's the mango. Overall I adore the scent personally, but if you don't it's not strong and it doesn't linger so it's not something that should be a deal breaker either way.
This gives a very light cleanse, which is perfect in the mornings. It takes off any residue or anything else that is sitting on top of your skin, but doesn't strip the skin or leave it dry. It's extremely comfortable, easy and would be a good one for anyone with sensitive skin especially. The Cleansing Cream doesn't give a deep cleanse, so I wouldn't advice using this as a night-time cleanser, but it's perfect for the morning routine.
Clarins' Extra-Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream is a very nice product. I don't find I'm going through the tube too quickly, which is sometimes a problem I'v had with cream cleansers. It's very comfortable to use and has a scent I enjoy. It's basically one of those completely fuzz-free skincare products I feel absolutely confident saying I recommend to everyone and anyone.
