You guys, I have a favorite new product that I just have to tell you about that you are going to adore. I am a big fan of double cleansing, usually removing stubborn makeup with an oil-based product and following with a creamy lotion cleanser. I usually use Lancome Bifacil or Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover followed by Cerave Hydrating Cleanser as the first steps of my regimen. Balms are gaining in popularity as the first step, but I have been less than impressed.
The last cleansing balm I used was the much-hyped Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm. May I be blunt? The Pixi feels like I am rubbing the grease from fast food fried chicken at all over my face. It feels gross on my face. Plus, it leaves my mascara behind. Even after following with a second cleanser, my skin is left feeling sticky and oily after the Pixi. I went back to a tried and true eye makeup remover and separate cleanser after the Pixi and swore off cleansing balms — that is, until I tried the product I am using now.
What is it?
Osmosis Lift Away is a cleansing balm with a pudding-like texture. You massage it into the skin and it just dissolves your makeup so beautifully (and gently) as it lifts out any “gunk” from the day. My experience with this product is just the opposite of my Pixi experience. Osmosis Lift Away just feels LUXURIOUS on the face. This jar will last forever, as a little goes a long way. My favorite part? It truly feels like I am pampering my skin with a spa-worthy product. Did I mention that the ingredients are absolutely stellar?
