This week is SKINCARE WEEK on AVSB! I started testing these brands the beginning of 2015.
I tested each for a month (except Eve Lom). Below are my thoughts. Let me know yours!
Vogue touts Eve Lom cleanser as "probably the best cleanser in the world". I beg to differ (at least for anyone with sensitive or dry skin like mine). Eve Lom is a luxury skincare company out of London, that claims its cleanser is good for ALL SKIN TYPES. That baffles me, because I don't believe in "one size fits or suits all". At least in my experience! The cost of this cleanser is anywhere from $50 - $135 USD depending on the size jar you purchase. Sephora offered deluxe samples of this cleanser (It was February when I tried this) and I was lucky to get several samples. Each sample came with a packet of cleanser and a muslin cloth. You're suppose to apply the cleanser to a dry face, immerse the muslin cloth in hot water, squeeze off the excess water and apply the muslin cloth to your face. Once the cleanser is removed, you then use cool water and apply the muslin cloth to your face. The entire process is very ritualistic. After doing all of this, my skin felt dry and sensitive afterwards. I also experienced some redness (on the cheeks and in between my eyebrows). After trying it twice, I stopped! I didn't like how my skin was reacting. I didn't like the smell of this cleanser (i can't even describe, but it's like a sick scent). It's not very pretty to look at (doesn't it look like puke?). It has granules in it and it feels oily (heavy & sticky; it has Mineral Oil in it). After trying this out, I read some reviews on Makeup Alley. Many complained about the scent. Overall it only had a 3.5/5 rating, but 58% said they would buy it again. I wouldn't suggest using this cleanser, if you have dry or sensitive skin. I have NO INTEREST in trying anymore Eve Lom products! If the cleanser doesn't work for me, why would I try anything else? Have you tried Eve Lom? Tomorrow I'll have one more
