Skin Care, Splurge Worthy - December 15th, 2012
I’m such a sucker for cleansers. I always like to try new ones! I had the opportunity to check out this cleanser from Pevonia, and I really like it! It’s the Phyto-Gel Cleanser, a foaming cleanser for all skin types.
The Phyto-Gel Cleanser contains a bunch of botanical extracts, including saponaria, burdock, rosemary, sage and lemon. It’s a foaming cleanser, but it doesn’t leave the skin dry or stripped feeling at all. It has a light fragrance, kind of a spa-herbal type scent, which I really like. A little bit goes a long way, and I like the squeeze tube packaging, since you can squeeze out really small amounts (unlike a pump, which would probably dish out more product than you need to get the job done). It takes off makeup (including most of my eye makeup) no problem. Long wear eyeliner and mascara still need eye makeup remover (which I’ve started using anyway).
It is pricey for a cleanser, at $30 for 5 oz., but since you only need a little dab, it works out pretty good price-wise compared to my usual $15-20 price range for cleanser. If you want to splurge and treat yourself, I really like Pevonia products, including this Phyto-Gel Cleanser!
