I get sent what feels like a zillion products and most of them are utterly meh but, as you know, I try and focus on the gems. Life’s too short to waste time telling people about pooh. I want you to know about the goodies and Arden’s new Ceramide Replenishing Cleansing Oil is one of them. In fact, that’s a real understatement – this stuff is liquid gold!
A mix of antioxidant and omega-rich oils like apricot, safflower and olive, it whips off even the toughest make-up with all the power of blerrie paint stripper but treats your skin with the utmost of TLC.
Using it is easy peasy. Simply rub it into your face while your skin is dry (or dryish) then add a splash of water to emulsify it so it turns into a milk. It then rinses away cleanly and leaves your skin with ZERO oily residue. As a combination skinned kind of girl, emerging from my shower with skin that feels perfectly clean and supple but without the teensiest hint of oil (but not stripped to shizz either) is super important to me and Arden’s cleanser really gets it right.
At R495 it’s not the most wallet-friendly cleanser on the block but you really need very little so I see the large pump bottle (a good 195ml) lasting for ages. Also, due to it’s fabulously luxurious-feeling quality and wondrous efficacy I see it as a very worthwhile splurge.
