New Cleansing Products!

Hi Everyone!

Wow!  I can't believe it's already December!  I can definitely admit that 2012 has been a year filled with surprises, joy, and love.  I hope 2013 is just as great!

I've decided to post this entry as an answer to Linh's question on what my new cleansing products are.  

Linh introduced me to Bioderma a few months ago.  At the time, I was using an oil based Maybelline makeup remover so I just poured the Crealine H2O into a mason jar and stuck it in my fridge for a few months.  After a while, I just lost hope that I would ever finish that Maybelline makeup remover and picked up the Bioderma to add some spice to my cleansing routine.  

WOW!  I can honestly say that I am super duper impressed by this one.  I use it to remove eye makeup.  It removes everything very easily except for waterproof mascara, which I'm okay with because mascara that removes too easily usually are raccooners.  One of the neatest things about Bioderma Crealine H2O is that it doesn't sting, irritate my eyes, or leave behind that greasy feeling after use.  Even better, cold Crealine H2O acts as a great and refreshing cold compress when I'm ready to take off my makeup at the end of the day.


I just pulled out this Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser because it was just sitting around and not getting enough love.  I haven't used this enough to develop much of an opinion.  So far it cleanses all right.  Used with my Clarisonic Mia2, it leaves my skin feeling really soft, smooth, and clean.  

The Clarisonic Mia2 is a love/hate thing.  I love how it works to cleanse my skin.  I hate the automatic 20-20-10-10 second timer.  I always feel rushed because of the timer.  



I originally wanted to get the cleanser for brightening skin but am happy with this one for aging skin.  It says to use this at night to remove makeup and cleanse skin.  Truthfully, I use this morning and night because

1) it smells SO.  DARNED.  GOOD!
2) it leaves my skin looking and feeling younger, brighter, and luminous like porcelain.
3) I like to remove this cleanser with a hot face towel and my face towel smells like the spa!
4) no adverse reactions like dry skin or rashes or acne.

Not pictured here is my go-to Johnson's Head-to-Toe Baby Wash, which I always use whenever I feel like my other cleansers might have missed something.

That's it for this post on cleansers I use for my skincare.   I will probably post a product review on the Jurlique cleanser later on.

Good luck to my ladies still in school!  Have a safe, healthy, and wonderful holiday season!

Totally agree...that Bioderma Crealine is one fantastic product!!! I've never tried any Jurlique products, but everyone raves about how amazing they smell...I need to try something so I know what all the hub-bub is about!! :-) Can't wait for your review on the Jurlique cleanser!

I'm so glad you like the bioderma!

I've never tried the Jurlique Balancing Cleansing Lotion, but I'll probably look into it after I finish with my current cleanser.
