The first time I was introduced to this product was at my in-laws. You could imagine the look on my face as I watched my mother-in-law rub this cream all over her made-up face. I had the most concerned look. I grew up using a regular liquid cleanser and had NEVER heard of a cream cleanser. She explained to me what it was and that her mother had used it and so do my sisters-in-law. So naturally my interest was piqued. Which leads me to this review today.
I have been using this product for quite a while and I really enjoy it. Mainly because at the end of the day (especially a work day) I am so exhausted and the thought of washing my face just does not sound appealing. And it never has. Typically, I just remove my makeup with the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and immediately follow-up with either their alcohol-free toner or their exfoliating toner (which is AMAZING btw, has both AHAs and BHAs). But now I use the cold cream cleanser after the towelettes in order to remove every ounce of makeup – including the pesky Double Wear. I simply wash my hands for sanitary reasons and then take some cream out of the jar. I massage the cream into my face for 15 seconds or so then wipe it off. My skin doesn’t feel stripped of oil or moisture and feels so soft. The cleanser does have a strong perfume-y scent so if that bothers you, you will not enjoy this product. I personally like the scent but thought it was worth a mention. So next time you are walking through the aisles of your grocery store or drugstore, try it out!
