GWENBEAUTY || LANCOME GALATÉE CONFORT

Cleansing is a very important step of our daily routine regardless how many steps of makeup /skincare you have and regardless of age and sex. Cleansing is a must step for everyone. You clean your hands, your body, you hair, so you gotta clean your face too.
Choosing the right cleanser is also important as you need to understand your skin well and what is your routine like.
Ive got sensitive skin with minor Rosecea so it is very important for me to have a cleanser that cleans well but yet doesnt strip all that oil and skin away. Unfortunately i cant use a scrub or exfoliate everyday due to my skin sensitivity. So i always have to do a double cleanse step also due to me wearing all the layers of makeup.
Ive recently stubled upon a new product.  The Lancome Galatee Confort – Comforting Milky Cream Cleanser.

Lancome is quite a brand famous for many products but this is one product that is not highly advertised, reviewed or discussed.  Hence I’ve decided to do a review on this and since its in my monthly favourites. Thats a plus point.
image
It comes in the standard skincare bottle with two sizes  200ml and 400ml.
image
With their standard pump which i love. Cause its different than the usual pump and this saves alot of space  and travel friendly. I hate the pumps that has a long stick pump and whenever i travel im damn afraid my stuff might push and accidentally pump liquid out #triedandtested
image
In this review, ill also be showing how effective this cleanser is as a makeup remover and as a face cleanser.
As a face cleanser,  it works well and cleanse well with a layer of moisture so it does not give you that tight tacky feeling that everyone hates.
On my hand, i have makeup base, two layers of foundation, blusher, bronzer, concealers, correctors,  waterproof eyeliner, matte lipsticks, lip stain and lip crayon. On top of everything, setting powder. (My usual everyday look)
image
Let the magic begin
I didnt have to gently scrub, just madsage throughly without water .
image
And tadah..  looks red because of the lipstick and the lipstains. You could see that the water proof eyeliner no longer is visible.
image
As my lipstick and lipstains are long-wear and waterproof, my only concerns now was “damn…is this gonna cause my hand to be stained in red?”
image
I rinsed it with water and massaged gently, I was literally  “omg. What sorcerer is this????”
It works so well that not a stain of lipstick, eyeliners or any makeup was found on my hand.
This shows how well this product works and cleans deeply as well.

All the claims above, let’s see if it does what it says and claims;

image

The first time I used it, I used it as an individual cleanser after i’ve removed my makeup, for the first five days. And the 2nd week – I use it together with my Clarisonic Mia2.
For the size of 100ml, it stands on shelf nicely, made out of plastic. I love the pump, it doesn’t feel cheap, not too soft or too hard. And best of all is that the product doesn’t stay at the pump and hardens for the next use. #annoyingthingsaboutpumps

A little goes a long way with this product. Which is a good thing because this means it’s worth more than what you pay – not using too much every time.
imageThe product is a clear and white, lathers really well and it really cleans
One thing that I hate about cleansers is that tight squeaky feeling. Some people may love it, but it’s a personal preference which i dislike as it shows signs of dehydration and sensitive skin. This cleanser on that other hand does not make your skin tight but yet cleans your face. – Deep cleans but perfect moist.
Cleaning our face is important, but stripping off everything off your skin is just very unhealthy for a everyday routine.
After removing my makeup with my cleansing oil or creamy cleanser, I would use the éPure Amino Hydro Intense Cleanser to wash my face as the final cleansing step as this not only cleans any leftovers but also gives me a moisture boost with repairing and whitening benefits.

Would i recommend this? Yes
At the price of RM59.90, you don’t have to pay a hefty price and to get such an amazing product.
