The one skincare product that I always get nervous about trying is a new cleanser. The reason why is that about one year ago I was testing out a few new cleansers that literally ruined my skin and gave me the worst breakout I have ever experienced in my life. It lasted for several months and only started to get better when I began to use the MVO Face Oil, (you see why I am huge fan of it?). Therefore, when I find a cleanser that works well without irritating my skin, I stay loyal to it. That is the case for my beloved Pai Cleanser and also the Aurelia Miracle Cleanser. A new one was recently added to the brief list of the safe ones; it is the ED4OLO Active Moisture Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover.
Here’s the deal: imagine a light oil that smells like tropical fruits, melts & removes all the gunk off your face, and then magically dissolves with water. Just-like-that. If you are into oil cleansing you are probably thinking that such a wonder-product does not exist, but this is exactly what this cleansing oil is like. Now, for all of you who do not use oils on your face (but should), let me explain why this cleansing oil is amazing. When you cleanse with an oil, whether is jojoba, coconut, argan, castor, almond, or whatever else, the makeup completely melts off. However, taking off all the oil from your face requires some time and patience – wipe, wipe again, and one more time. This needs to be done properly to avoid leaving residue on the skin. This cleansing oil instead, completely dissolves with water. I hope that gives you an idea of how brilliant that is. It makes the whole cleansing ritual more relaxing and enjoyable. In addition to that, Elizabeth Dehn and One Love Organics added some interesting ingredients to do some good to your skin while you are enjoying your cleansing routine: papain, a fruit enzyme that gently exfoliates the skin (without any particles that physically do the exfoliation, so no-scrubbing is involved), and a natural Vitamin B complex that detoxifies and tones the skin. This cleanser is very gentle to my sensitive skin and actually makes it very happy, causing no redness nor blemishes.
Bottom line: love.
