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."
 Dimitri can bring out the beauty in everyone with his amazing Skinn cosmetics line! You can see Dimitri's appearances on several shows. And actually, you can tune into ShopNBC this May 18th and 19th to catch him!

Overall, I really enjoyed Skinn cosmetics! The Olive and Enzyme Rich Balm Cleanser and I will be using every last drop of it!
