I have never really classed my skin as sensitive, However, this past year I have been introducing Retinol into my skincare and Occasionally I make my skin a little sensitive by being a little impatient and use a higher strength of the retinol.
It’s no secret that I have a ‘thing’ for cleansers. They are the skincare product I get most excited at trying out, mainly because you can see a difference with the first use but I also think it’s a really, really important step in every skincare routine. There really is no point in buying expensive skincare if you don’t clean your skin properly first. Cleansing is the absolute foundation of any great, effective skincare routine. Since I have been using retinol I have used this cleanser much more regularly. I can sometimes be a little keen with the retinol which can leave my skin feel every so slightly irritated. I have found this cleanser to be the perfect solution to remove my makeup and general grime in a really gentle way.
The cleanser has a milky-gel like formula which feels really lovely to use on the skin, It’s really light and surprisingly doesn’t do such a bad job of removing makeup although if you are wearing tough mascara then you may want to use a specific makeup remover however for a little coating this will work just fine. I like to massage the cleanser into the skin twice. I personally remove mine with a soft muslin cloth however if you are suffering from really sensitive skin then you could either wash it off (Although not ideal as I don’t find splashing it off removes the product properly) or remove with damp cotton pads being sure to not irritate your skin further. La Roche Posey Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser is a very simple, fragrance-free cleansing lotion for most skin types especially those with dehydrated/dry skin. It poses no risk of irritating skin unless you know you’re sensitive to one of the ingredients it contains. The ingredients go a little like this… Water, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Capryl Glycol/Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
I have got on really well with this product, Its simple but efficient which is all I can ask for really when it comes to a cleanser. it is readily available from Boots & even some pharmacists.
