Good morning all! I'm so glad it's Friday!
So I've been looking for a deep cleansing face soap....one that is deep cleansing enough to remove all my stubborn makeup but was not too harsh for my skin....meaning I didn't want it to feel really tight and dry after washing...I hate that...but I did need for it to be super cleansing to remove all my eye makeup and all traces of foundation....I used to love using my orange deep clean by Neutrogena but found that it was way too harsh for my skin....although it did a great job I was looking for something a little more gentler and cheap.....I love using the Cleansing Oil by MAC but I can't afford a bottle of that stuff especially if I'll be using it on a daily basis, the same for the MAC wipes....I do love my MAC wipes but even those are expensive for using everyday...not to mention it is just a wipe which I would end up needing a little soap to wash my face overall afterwords anyway....So I went back to my all-time favorite Noxema, but to me I like Noxema for those days that I don't wear makeup....it calms and soothes my skin, cleans away dirt and other 'things' in the air....I love the way it makes my skin feel but it was not a makeup remover soap.....so I trailed on back to the store to do some more research and found Biore.
Now I love Biore for their nose strips....you know those little sticky paper strips that you apply to your nose and chin to remove those nasty black heads....but I never really looked into their face soap or skincare line. They have 2 or 3 other soaps to choose from but I chose this one because it was less confusing and simple to understand....it's a soap that removes all traces of makeup, cleanses your skin without disturbing the natural balance in your skin....I loved that! So indeed I was anxious to try it out.
The soap is a gel soap....light green in color and is not harsh at all...The afterwards feel of my skin: clean but yet still moisturized but not oily at all....My face felt smooth and supple. I use 2 pumps to remove eye makeup and about 2 - 3 pumps for my entire face (a little goes a long way). I bought mine at a local grocery store, but I'm not sure if I've seen them in CVS or Walgreens. I paid $7 for mine.
Now when I ever try out a new makeup remover cleanser soap I always do my severe and dramatic eye and face makeup test...I use UDPP for the shadows and I also used a dark liner to line my brows and I went over them about 3 times to really work it in! Not only did I layer on the shadows about 3 times but I made sure to use those high-pigmented shadows.
