It did not take me a long time to decide whether I liked this cleanser or not – it was instant love. From the texture, to the great ingredients, to the effectiveness, this product has it all.
The Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser* comes in a jar, which makes it easier to get the amount of product that you need. I use about a finger scoop for each cleansing session and I now use it both in the morning and at night. When I wear more makeup than usual I do a double cleanse at night: the first round to remove makeup, the second one to deeply cleanse the skin. The texture is a lightweight creamy consistency, slightly fluffier than the other creamy cleansers I have tried. I apply the product all over my face while my skin is dry, massage it gently with my fingertips and then remove it with the lovely bamboo muslin cloth that the cleanser comes with while it is warm and damp. Makeup and oil are instantly melted off from eyes and face and my skin feels very clean and refreshed, but also hydrated and comfortable. It also leaves a pretty glow on my face.
The cleanser has a wonderful scent that comes from the Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Bergamot oils in it. Being some of my favorite essential oils, I absolutely love the smell. This makes my cleansing routine very enjoyable. Although I have sensitive skin, the oils have not caused any irritation, but I do suggest that you do a patch test if your skin usually reacts to essential oils in skin care products.

I find that this cleanser is absolutely perfect for my skin and I also love the probiotic technology used to formulate the product. If you are not familiar with probiotics in general, I highly recommend that you look into them, as they are very beneficial to our health. On the Aurelia Skincare website there is a lot of interesting information about how probiotics benefits the skin too, so take a look!
