When it comes to removing makeup from my face at nighttime, I like to use the gentlest facial cleanser possible. I prefer using cream cleansers and one of my favorites to use is the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser from The Body Shop. One of the main reasons I love this cleanser is because it contains some natural ingredients in it that helps soothe and soften my sensitive skin gently while cleansing it effectively.
Packaging & Pricing
The Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser comes in this light green 6.75 fluid ounce squeezable bottle, which is recyclable. I like earth friendly packaging because it helps keep the environment cleaned up. Anyways, the price of the cleanser is around $14, but I wait until it goes on sale because I am on a tight budget and cannot always spend a lot of money on facial care products, but I will say this cleanser is one of the gentlest and I find it worth every dollar I spend on it.
Ingredients in the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
* Aloe vera
* Palm Oil
* Babassu Oil
Texture, Appearance & Scent
Another one of my favorite things about this facial cleanser is the creamy lotion like texture it has that gently cleanses the skin without being harsh and drying. The appearance is white because there are not any dyes in this cleanser at all. In addition, the cleanser does not have a strong scent either, which makes me very happy because I am extremely sensitive to strong fragrances.
Using the Calming Cleanser
The first thing I do before using the calming cleanser is rinse my face down with plenty of warm water to help open up my pores. Then, I squeeze a dime size amount into my hands and than I lather my face up with it. Now, this cleanser does not lather up into foamy bubbles. In fact, it feels like a lotion, but it still removes makeup and dirt from the face well.
Anyways, once I lather my skin up with it, I wipe it off with a clean wet cloth and rinse my face down again. After, I use my toner and apply a moisturizing cream to help protect and nourish my skin so it does not become dried out with flakiness. However, you do not have to worry about your face drying out when you use this cleanser because it does not leave the skin dry and tight like other facial cleansers do. In fact, my skin always feels really soft and looks really clean with this nice even complexion. My complexion has improved greatly since I used this cleanser and my acne scars have faded right away, which has actually shocked me.
Overall, I would have to say the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser is one of my absolute favorites to use and is one I would recommend to anyone as a gentle facial cleanser to help cleanser their delicate sensitive skin too
