QUICK REVIEW: A good basic cream cleanser for dry skin; however, the muslin cloth does the exfoliating.
the REVIEW (1/25/11): The texture of this cream cleanser is very nice – like a creamy cold cream without the oily feeling. If you have a very dry skin type, you might like this – it did not burn or make me itch; oily skin’s are better off avoiding it all together. Perhaps I’m a little bias since I prefer an oil cleanser prior to any other face wash. This cleanser didn’t quite dissolve all my makeup (like the DHC Cleansing Oil does) and seemed redundant after using an oil. I like the concept of using a muslin cloth – but you can get that extra exfoliation by using a baby washcloth with any cleanser.
Overall, this cleanser isn’t anything special. You can probably get the same results from using a vat of any cream cleanser you can get at the drugstore with a soft terry washcloth. It lacked the “oomph” a cleanser of its type needs. If you are looking for a nice rich cream or balm type cleanser, the Eve Lom cleanser is a good choice. I will also be reviewing the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm, which seems promising.
