As promised I'm trying to review as many of my favourite (and not-so-favourite) cleansers pretty much consecutively.
First up is Clarins Extra-Comfort. I've probably been using this on and off for nearly 20 years. It's a go-to staple in my collection and the first one I pick up if I'm feeling unsure about my skin or just - you know - tired and unable to make a decision. You know what I mean - when you go to wash your face and think 'urghhumpf'. This is that cleanser.
It comes in a big fat pot which I love. It's listed as being for dry/sensitive and whilst it IS great for sensitivity - its perfectly acceptable for normal/oily skins. It contains shea butter so although normally I would advise steering clear if you are acne prone, this is a cream consistency - it's not rich - not a balm and not thick - if you wash it off correctly with a flannel it shouldn't cause you any problems at all. If anything, it will calm the redness that comes with spots et al...
Suitable for 1st or 2nd cleanse - takes makeup off no problem.
Also contains jojoba, soapwort and palm oil. Pretty perfect to be honest.
Available from www.clarins.co.uk and is £19.00 for 100ml. The Eve Lom equivalent is £55.00. *rests case*
