I’m always a little skeptical when makeup brands dive into the skincare world, but when one of your favourite brands do it. You just have to give their products a try. The NARS Gentle Cream Cleanser is a gentle, non-drying cream cleanser that has a lather to rid all unwanted makeup and surface impurities. I find that it is best used for dry skin, or if you experience seasonally dry skin. I appreciate that its free from the nasties such as synthetic fragrance, paraben, and alcohol. Therefore, my skin doesn’t feel stripped of moisture.
I’ve been using this product from last summer as my morning cleanser in the evenings, however, I find it best used in the winter months due to the rich but light weight formula. It’s lasted for me ages, as a teeny weeny bit goes a very long way. Nars wasn’t lying when they said it’s gentle. Not a sting to the eye in sight (pun totally intended).
It removes make up like a dream and my skin feels squeaky clean after two washes. Post-cleanse, my skin is left feeling soft and with a slight velvet texture. I just want to rub my face all day.
For me the downfall is the packaging, it looks nice, sleek, and luxurious, however in use its a pain. The product gets everywhere, especially in the cap, so I often find myself scraping the product mostly from the cap and side due to its slight runny consistency.
It is a little on the pricey side, however it is a luxury brand and a little goes a long way you so you get more for your money, so that justifies the price tag for me.
