Review: Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser

Friday, 12 April 2013

When I got back from China, my skin felt extremely dried out due to a poor holiday skincare routine and being on a 13 hour flight home. Throw in this cold weather we've been having in the UK and hey presto, my skin feels like the Sahara desert right now.

Ok, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but my skin has been so dry recently and this Elemis cleanser has been a bit of a lifesaver. It's a lovely creamy cleanser, which does not foam. I usually use it in the morning and for a second cleanse after the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, but it also works well to remove makeup. It doesn't leave any residue on my skin and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after washing either. My skin always feels soft and moisturised after use. It has a subtle rose scent, which in my opinion smells slightly plasticky. I managed to break the top off the pump on my bottle by dropping it on the floor, but the bottle design is good and the pump dispenses a good amount of product. I usually use 1 pump in the morning and 2-3 pumps in the evening.

This cleanser is recommended for dehydrated, mature and sensitive skin, so if you skin falls into any of those categories, I really recommend this.

Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy
