With one of my Sephora purchases, the cashier dropped this fresh sample into my bag:
I started with a full face of makeup. Here is it's opponent! Work-day-old makeup, full eyeshadow with mascara, eyebrow fill, blush, and foundation, plus setting and contouring powders. I'm winkin' at ya to show the eyeshadow it has to get off:
So, here I am after that:
So, I washed my face with the fresh cleanser. My face was really clean; almost squeaky clean. It did not get rid of all of the mascara, and there was still some eyeshadow hanging out at the lash line. However, I am cautious with soap around my eyes, so it is possible that it was a lack of vigor on my part that left the eye makeup remains.
Immediately after washing, my skin felt tight. It wasn't so intense that it felt stripped, but my oil treatment felt like a relief. At this point, I wasn't liking the cleanser. I don't want to strip my skin of any of its moisture.
Anyway. To finish, I used my now-beloved almond oil to wipe my face and get rid of the rest of the eye makeup. I was not surprised to see how much makeup came off of my eyes, but, I was stunned to see how clean the rest of my face was! I usually get a lot of makeup off with the oil wiping, but other than the eye makeup, there was nothing left on there. Nothing.
Here is a very unflattering shot of my face after using the oil. You can see how the only difference is now all my eye makeup is off:
I'm still debating that question. I have a few bottles of cleansers left to use before I have to decide on an answer.
UPDATE - I purchased a travel-sized bottle of fresh Soy Face Cleanser, and I am very happy with it. I use it twice a week, in conjunction with my almond oil cleansing routine.
