This is a different kind of cleanser. You may be use to using astringents or exfoliating, bubbling soap detergents to wash your face. It may be time to rethink your skin care routine, especially if you suffer from having dry and sensitive skin that is prone to redness. The cream based, emollient works like what you may only recognize as “your mother’s cold cream”. IF you have sensitive skin it is important to protect the delicate balance that exists on the micro environment that is your facial skin.
Traditional cleansers tend to strip away the skin’s natural protectants, if you have sensitive skin you probably already lack some protection and need to keep all of your skin’s natural lipids in tact.
What does the product do?
The product not only removes dirt and impurities from the pores, it takes away make up. The LightLotion cleanser works like a 3 in one product. It is make up remover, facial cleanser, and moisturizer all in one product.
What it doesn’t do…
This product is not an anti-acne cleanser there is nothing in the product that will stop your breakouts, if you do suffer from acne it is recommended you use a different cleanser with acne fighting powers. This is also not an anti-ager despite being geared towards an older crowd with dry, no breakout, sensitive skin. Moisture will help you look more youthful and help prevent further wrinkling but it cannot reverse existing aging.
Active Ingredients Inside the Product
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride which is derived from coconuts is the main ingredient that helps skin stay moisturized that works as a base for the product. The fatty acids from the coconut oil have restorative powers.
Other botanicals and plant based ingredients found in the ingredient list are: green tea leaf extract, chamomile, and olive fruit oil.
These all work to stop redness and moisturize the skin also.
How to Cleanse the Face Using Estee Lauder Verite LightLotion Cleanser
Don’t be fooled by the word cleanser, there is no water involved in this process. To use just put it right on your face and rub in small circular motions starting with the neck and working your way upwards. To wipe away use a clean, dry wash cloth or your favorite cotton pads or balls. Use it twice daily for best results.
Does the product work?
This cleanser is very simple and doesn’t promise to much like some other products. The cold cream cleanser simply removes dirt, environmental pollutants, and makeup while keeping skin hydrated. The formula is great and there are no reported side effects for those with sensitive skin that have trouble finding good cleansing methods. The product definitely works, but for a steep price tag. It is a product that people recommend, and I would recommend it too.
