My thoughts on Banish All Clear Mint Cleanser
This is one product that wasn’t included in the starter kit but was gifted anyway.
Cleansing is the step in my skincare that I spend the least amount of money on. Don’t get me wrong. I do cleanse twice a day but I feel that this is the step that effects my skin in the end the least. I rather spend money on the products I apply after this step, then pay a lot of money for a cleanser. That still doesn’t mean that I cleanse with anything on my face. Just that I don’t buy the most expensive cleansers on the market. When I have been using makeup I always double cleanse. That is oil cleaner first and then a foam cleanser. If I don’t wear makeup I only use one cleanser and which type depends on how my skin is that day.
Banish all clear mint cleanser comes in a glass bottle with a pump. I do feel that the packaging is nice but wrong. The cleanser is really liquid and when using this type of pump it is easy to get the product all over the place. I know this is kind of ridiculous to write, but it is bothering me some. If you don’t understand what I am going for I will explain a little bit further. When I add the first pump of product into my hands everything is just fine. But when adding the second pump, the product that is in my hand squirt out if I am not careful. So by saying this I thing that there are better pumps to be used for the bottle. That is it.. Hmm really took a lot of explaining on that one..
So, back to the product
The cleanser has menthol in it, hence the name. And normally menthol is not what I prefer using in my skincare. My eyes are usually very sensitive to menthol so I preferably stay away from that ingredient. The Banish all clear mint cleanser do not affect my eyes at all so I am really not bothered by it.
In the description of this cleanser it says that it is not overly drying. I would prefer a cleanser that is not drying at all since my skin is really dry. By that said it is drying on my skin and I do feel that I want to add a toner directly after drying my face.
When adding water to the mixture it really foams up nicely. The cleanser does a great job in cleansing my face, and I do feel that my skin is clean after using it.
This will not end up on my favorites list, simply due to price and that it is drying on my skin. And cleansing is not what I like spending the majority of my skincare budget on so therefor this will not be a product I would buy again.
I give this product 2/7
