Today I want to tell you about the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which was the part of this set that I’ve bought for myself as a post-holidays treat.
Since it’s a part of the Clarins’ girls top 5 products, I had high expectations and it did not disappoint.
It is basically a face wash and scrub two-in-one which means that you do your cleansing in only one step, as the name suggests.
I find that it does a great job: removes all traces of makeup and cleanses the skin really well, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin and I could not believe that I did not have that ”tight” feeling afterwards). Although, I usually prefer enzyme peels over scrubs, this one is rather gentle. I’d say it’s spot on, not too “scrubby” but just good enough to exfoliate the skin.
I also like the lovely orange scent, which is a nice touch; this is especially awesome in the mornings when you are still half-asleep since it does help to wake up, in a way.
I personally wouldn’t (and don’t) use this product on a daily basis, in fact, it shouldn’t be used daily! But maybe several times a week, especially when you don’t have time for the extra steps in the cleansing routine.
This is yet another great cleanser from Clarins. Next time I plan to get Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream or Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream with Microbeads , as I haven’t tried those two yet.
Unfortunately, I don’t have the list of the ingredients, the key ones, according to Clarins are: Orange extract, Moringa Seed extract, Gentle Silica Microbeads.
The price is £20/$35 for 125 ml from Escentual. com
