Review: Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

I noticed that I haven't posted any reviews on any makeup remover products. Now, I have two separate items, one for removing my eye makeup and one for removing my face makeup. I prefer a double layer (silicon based and water based) product for my eye makeup and a water-soluble cleanser for the rest of my face. Today, I'm going to review a product I use to remove my face makeup.

What the product claims
Foamy cream-mousse cleanser removes long-wearing makeup and sunscreens quickly, gently, efficiently. Comforts with soothing botanicals. Leaves skin feeling moist, clean, fresh. A great value, too: concentrated formula is long-lasting. Ophthalmologist Tested.

Purified water, potassium myristate, glycerin, potassium behenate, sodium methyl cocoyl taurate, potassium palmitate, potassium laurate, potassium stearate, myristic acid, behenic acid, peg-3 distearate, palmitic acid, cholesteryl hydroxystearate, lauric acid, sodium hyaluronate, stearic acid, rosemary, dimethyl octenol, lemon, eucalyptus, lavender, butylene glycol, pine, cardamom, trisodium edta, ext. d & c violet no. 2, fd & c red no. 4. 

How I use it
Usually, I use this at night or any other time when I want to remove my makeup. I would use this as an ordinary face cleanser, lathering it up and massaging it on my already wet face. Rinse off and voila! Clean face!

What I like about it
  • Easy to use. I'll do everything over the sink and be done with it.
  • Lathers up easily
  • No fragrance detected
  • Takes off makeup within one application
  • Doesn't break me out!

What I hate about it
  • The full size product is expensive. I only bought the travel size ones.
  • Can be drying at times, but not overdrying that it gives me patches of flaky skin.
  • There are colorants present. This might be seen as a problem by people with extra sensitive skin

Yes, but only if Clinique is having a sale. =p
