Lately I've decided to pay a little bit more attention to my skin routine. I'm really good at keeping skin hydrated and soft, but not so good and cleansing. Sadly, this is what gives me spots - yes! I'm a secret wiper! I'm always too lazy to take my makeup off properly, using a proper makeup remover and cotton pad, instead opting for a few quick strokes with a Boots cucumber wipe! Well, NO MORE!
I have been using an oil based cleanser (oil based is new to me) from AEOS* which is an organic skincare brand. This makeup removing oil cleanser consists of a blend of essential oils, plant extracts and the energies of gems and crystals. It contains avocado oil, sesame seed oil, grape seed oil and jojoba amongst other natural extracts.
This beautiful oil truly is a gorgeous TLC blend for skin! I found it extremely gentle on the skin and very quick at its makeup removing purpose. I don't know if it's because it's oil based but I found that it literally only took one swipe over an area of skin to completely remove all traces of makeup whereas with cream based cleansers I normally have to give my face quite a few strokes before I feel everything's off completely. Whilst it's removing makeup and cleansing it's also being super delicate on the skin and you get that fabulous silky feeling when you're done like you've just rubbed your skin in some very expensive silky sheets! This cleanser contains 100% natural ingredients so its gently enough to use on your eyelids and eyelashes - and may I add, WOW, no more lost eyelashes to the pulling and tugging that comes with wiping makeup away because this kindly and gently helps dissolve the makeup first.
It's super easy to use, all you need is a cotton wool pad, apply a few drops of the oil and add some water to it and get wiping away!
I can't fault this product, it's the best cleanser I've used and I love the fact that its super concentrated and oil based because it also gives you that super nourishing feel whilst removing skin rather than making you feel like you've just stripped your skin of all of its important nutrients. The only slight downside for me is the price. RRP £39.99. It's rather pricey BUT it's 100% natural and organic and also because you mix it with some water, you only need to use a couple of drops at a time making it more cost effective than a cream/water based cleanser. If you're really into your natural skin products and the budget is not too high I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to really look after their skin. Looking for to re-purchasing!
