Hello darlings! Today I'd like to tell you a bit about my new favorite face cleanser. I discovered this gem through fellow beauty bloggers and boy am I grateful for/to them! I'm on my second tube right now and I don't think I'll be stopping there... :)
I love Alverde as a brand and I've tried a bunch of things from them, yet somehow I never noticed this cleansing creme before. When Nuša brought my attention to it, I decided it to pick it up next time I was in one of our DM stores (drugstores). I was happy to discover it was very affordable - I believe it costs something over 2 € (2.50 something? I know it's under 3 €) but I had an additional 30% off coupon so I got it for even less than that. And the price alone was enough to convince me - even if I ended up hating it, I didn't really spend a fortune on it. :)
Fortunately though, I absolutely love it! It's a great cleansing cream. It has a very gentle, natural (almost earthy scent) to it and it's also extremely gentle on the skin. It is meant for unclean, problem skin, but because it's so gentle, I think it would be great for all skin types, even sensitive. I can use it on my eyes (or just go over them) and it doesn't sting at all which is awesome (I hate it when you can't use a cleanser on your eyes). As far as it's makeup removing properties goes I can't tell you much, because I use my trusty Cleanse & Polish for that, but I think it could handle foundation quite well, I just wouldn't use it to remove eye makeup (I think it's not strong enough for eyeliner/mascara).
Ever since I got it I've been using it religiously. When I'm taking a shower, I use it with my L'Occitane brush so I get a little peeling done at same time, but when I use it as a morning cleanser, I just apply it with my hands and it does a great job as well.
This truly is a great cleansing cream that has lovely ingredients (Alverde is a natural cosmetics line) and is very affordable. I'll probably just keep on repurchasing it again and again and again. :)
What are your thoughts on this product, have you tried it yet? I was thinking on doing an update on my skin care routine or talk about skin care products I recommend - what do you think of that? :D
