Skinn Cosmetics: Olive and Enzyme Rich Balm Cleanser Review
I have to admit, I've never been as careful on my skin as I should. Whenever I clean my face, I usually just use the old soap and water. Mostly because, I've found that a lot of cleansers seem to be ineffective, or irritate my skin - Sometimes, even the smell of some products would get to me too much.
So at first, I was a little skeptical to try the Olive and Enzyme Rich Balm Cleanser from Skinn Cosmetics. After my first usage though, I knew this was a product that I am going to enjoy for a long long time.
The first thing you notice about the cleanser is the amazing smell. It smells like a dreamsicle (orange) and smells unlike any facial product I have ever used before. Most of the facial products I've used in the past have had a chemical smell, which usually ends up giving me a headache - So I was very very happy with the scent.
After my first initial use, my face felt refreshed and cleansed, and it smelled great.
You can use this product as a softening mask, by simply leaving the product on your face for 10 minutes, but it doubles as a regular wash, by removing debris and grime as well. I've actually used it both ways now. After using it as a softening mask, I did notice a subtle difference - My face felt, well, rejuvenated. It may have felt a tad bit softer, but for the most part, is just felt renewed (Which is an amazing feeling to have!)
Using it as a make-up remover also worked extremely well. I get really paranoid that I will leave dirt behind, so normally I scrub for about 5 minutes with a wash rag, to be sure I get everything. Well fortunately, I don't have to worry anymore, because the cleanser melts all of that nasty stuff off :)!
The creator, Dimitri James is renowned. He has graced runways, the red carpet, and even 2 published books, entitled: "Becoming Beauty" and "Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls."
Overall, I really enjoyed Skinn cosmetics! The Olive and Enzyme Rich Balm Cleanser and I will be using every last drop of it!
