I’ve been testing out this facial cleanser from Deciem / Hylamide since my birthday. In fact, it is from my second birthday Sephora haul – this one was paid for by my awesome parents, but all picks were mine! You might recognize a few things that I’ve already reviewed:
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Rhubarb – reviewed here, Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask – reviewed here, and Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift 2017 – reviewed here. Samples – Chloe Love Story, Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine, Cover F/X Illuminating Primer and Sunday Riley C.E.O. Repair Moisturizer – I have not had a chance to test any of these ones out yet.
Ok, onto the review!
The Hylamide High-Efficiency Face Cleaner is supposed to be good for all skin types, even sensitive! Here’s what it says on the Sephora website:
This highly-efficient, crystal-clear micro-emulsion brings together oils, esters, and water-compatible cleaners into one advanced formula that works like an oil cleaner but acts like a water-based one—rinsing off effectively. In a single step, oils work with plant-derived esters to remove every trace of impurity and face/eye makeup. As you rinse off, Amazonian oils and purified tomato carotenoids leave behind an innocuous layer of comfortable, noncomedogenic hydration.
And the usage is super easy – If makeup is present, massage well onto dry face and rinse with warm water. If no makeup is present, massage well onto wet face and rinse with warm water.
This is a great, super gentle facial cleanser. It feels to me to be somewhere between a facial oil and a micellar water. And it removes make-up easily! I’d say that most mascaras will be removed no problem, and only once or twice did I have to go back and so a second removal for my super “bulletproof” waterproof mascara.
Have you tried this cleanser? I’d like to try more from this brand. It comes in a 4 oz bottle and is $21 CAD (at Sephora) – so it is reasonably priced!
