Winter makes my combination skin downright moody. Since I use toners to safeguard against breakouts and retinol cream to prevent aging, I always have a dry patch somewhere on my face… which, you guessed it, inevitably leads to more breakouts. Desperate to find a soothing cleanser that would end this vicious cycle, I turned to my aesthetician at SoHo’s Skin Care Lab for advice. She suggested Phytomer Perfect Visage Gentle Cleansing Milk. Here’s the lowdown:
Product: Phytomer Perfect Visage Gentle Cleansing Milk
Details: A creamy yet non-greasy cleanser that removes makeup and impurities without stripping skin of its essential oils.
Pros: The silky formula gently washes away makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft and soothed while giving me a radiant complexion. The cleanser’s subtle, fresh scent is a major plus!
Cons: As a rule I only use oil-free products, so the fact that one of the ingredients is hazel seed oil doesn’t make me the happiest. It hasn’t made me break out yet, but will it?
Final Say: This cleanser has become an integral part of my before-bed beauty regimen. I love how soothing it is, and appreciate that it’s a cleanser and makeup remover in one. Now I go to bed with soft, clean skin that smells like I’ve just come from a facial. I can’t get enough of it!
