Like every girl, I am constantly on the look out for a great, reasonably-priced face cleanser. A good cleanser is essential for keeping skin problems at bay. If your skin isn’t clean, you will have breakouts and your makeup will not go on smoothly. Also, if a cleanser makes your skin excessively dry, you’ll need a bunch of other products to rehydrate your skin. Needless to say, we all wish to have that one no-frills, dependable product, that does the job just right.
Clinique Wash-Away Gel Cleanser is that one product. It is true to its name and is really effective as a makeup remover. It works on eye shadow, eye liner and mascara, all of which can be difficult to remove even with some really high-end makeup removers.
You only need two drops of it at a time. It lathers up beautifully and leaves your face feeling clean and smooth. You do need quite a bit of water to rinse it off, though. But, I’ve noticed that with most Clinique cleasers. I follow it with a dab of moisturizer, since I have combination skin. It also has a slightly medicinal smell that many Clinique products have. It does not bother me, but it might be something to keep in mind before buying it.
