Glamourflage Halo Helen Cleanser is a gentle facial cleanser that contains natural oils like jojoba seed oil, wheat germ oil and coconut oil. Packaged in a very pretty retro-looking apple green squeeze tube with a fresh, light apple scent, I couldn’t wait to try this cleanser out.
To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this product as I had expected it to be a foaming cleanser and not a cleansing lotion. My oily skin is not a fan of cleansing lotions and prefers products that foam to help remove excess oil and impurities. I also found the 100ml squeeze tube a little difficult to use in the shower as it has a screw-top lid and is better suited to being used in the bath or at the basin.
However, we gave this lotion a try and found that it didn’t remove make-up very efficiently, especially when the lotion was applied with my fingers (as per the instructions) and even basic pencil eyeliner remained after most of it had been removed with a make-up wipe before cleansing! It did work a little better on a damp facial sponge (or warm wash cloth) but I still felt like my face wasn’t completely clean.
This would probably be a good product for those who wear little to no make-up or those out there who have sensitive, normal to dry or very mature skin and require a gentle cleanser.
Note: Please do a patch test before using if you do have sensitive skin, as this product does contain fragrances that may irritate some skins.
