When it comes to skincare, I think as long as you have the right cleanser you’re on the right track. I occasionally deviate from my usual products and this was one of those deviations. My aunty gifted this cleanser to me the last time she visited, knowing my love of products!
I’d never tried any Lancome skincare before so I was super excited to give it a go!
The Clarifying Cleanser Pearly Foam is a gel type cleanser. The first thing i noticed about this product was that it was SO DIFFICULT to get out of the tube.
It was probably a decent workout for my hands every morning – in the non weirdest way.
I actually had to wrestle to get this out of the tube and genuinely had to use both hands to get enough cleanser onto my flannel. No jokes.
That aside though, this was so thick that you really didn’t need a lot to get it foamed up and into a lather to wash your face with.
The tube contains 125ml of product and costs £23 from the majority of website I looked at.
I have to say that the packaging of this product doesn’t really excite me – it’s boring and although the rose design iconic to Lancome is incorporated into it I just feel like they could – and should – have done better.
Their other products such as their infamous mascaras look so much better than this, so on first viewing I was disappointed.
So far it’s not looking promising is it?
I have to admit though that this product surprised me and I actually really liked it. You can use this both morning and evening and a tiny bit will go really far – good job when you have to wrestle it!
This cleanser lathers up pretty well and removes most make up. It doesn’t remove the most stubborn product known to womankind – Benefit’s They’re Real mascara – but it does a good job of the rest.
I found that my ever dehydrated skin really liked this product and it didn’t ever feel stripped or tight after use.
I’m surprised in thinking that I would consider purchasing this again, although I would try and wait for a deal in a department store with free gifts or points, £23 for a cleanser is quite steep as my usual one is £18.50 (though I buy it on offer at £14) and that’s a treat!
Another thing I liked about this product was that it was sealed when purchased, this is always good news to me as it means that no one else has tampered with the product, used any and got any additional germs into it!
Shopping in stores with used make up nowadays can be pretty grim, I’d hate for this trend to spread to products like cleansers too, do you agree?
Have you tried Lancome skincare products? Have you tried this cleanser?
What else would you recommend from Lancome?
I do love their mascara, the Christmas sets are the best!
