How to use it
If you are using an oil cleanser use that first and then apply an appropriate amount to your palms, add some water and work up a nice lather, massage your face and wash off with lukewarm water.
If you don’t double cleanse you can use this as your only cleanser.
My thoughts on Huxley secret of Sahara cleansing gel be clean be moist
I received this in one of my Bomibags and I was really looking forward in trying it.
This is a really nice cleanser. It is mild to the skin and it made me really interested in the product.
I like it. it has the same scent as the toner though. Since I only received a sample sized product (30 ml) I will only do a first impression on it.
This is a low pH cleanser, around 5-6 (I haven’t confirmed the pH myself yet, but according to other reviews this claim seem to be solid).
I was surprised when I did an ingredient analysis and realized that it contained alcohol. I really don’t like alcohol in my skincare products since alcohol usually makes my skin drier than it already is.
The packaging of the sample really sucks. It is a hard bottle, and it is really hard to get the product out of the bottle (a good tip is to remove the inner lid but be careful not to get too much product out. The clear gel is so thick that you would need something softer to be able squeeze the product out easily. The full-size product has a different type of packaging. It comes in a bottle with a pump instead so the problem with the packaging doesn’t apply on the full-sized product.
When using this I don’t experience a squeaky-clean feeling as I do with a lot of other cleansers. But I do feel that my skin gets clean. It lathers up really nice and feels really nice on my skin.
The smell is not as strong as other product in the series which I am happy about. I do feel that the scent is rather strong and I would have wished it wasn’t there at all.
It claims to be moisturizing, but I really don’t think it is. It isn’t really drying either. I would put it somewhere in between. But bare in mind I have only tried a sample (30 ml) of this so far.
I would love to try the full-sized product but the alcohol in it put this further down my list of products to buy.
