When my usual facial cleanser was running low, I decided to try something new. My skin can be a little sensitive and dry, so I decided to give the Almay Makeup Remover + Cream Cleanser a try. I didn't read the instructions at first, so I tried to use it in the shower, as I normally would do with my usual cleanser. I was surprised to find that this one didn't lather and seemed to leave a coating on my skin when used that way. Definitely not what I had expected. In the evening, I decided to read the instructions (duh) and to try it again. This product is less like a “soapy” cleanser, and much more similar to the old fashioned cold cream that I used as a teenager to remove makeup. You apply it onto a damp face with dry fingers or onto a dry face with damp fingers (my preference), then you wipe it off with a damp washcloth. It is a really gentle cleanser that is great at removing makeup—even the 24 hour lip color that I prefer that isn't usually very washable! It's an extra (or slightly different) step in my skincare routine, but I like the way that it makes my skin feel soft and clean. My husband likes the fact that he doesn't wake up next to a “raccoon lady” because I hadn't removed my makeup properly the night before. Another pro: it doesn't contain micro beads to get into my eyes (it can be hard to find a cleanser without them these days). I'm sold on this product, and I plan to keep using it.
