Cleansing is one of the most important steps when it comes to skincare. It is the first step in skincare, both in the morning and evening, the skin needs to be thoroughly cleansed and get rid of any traces of makeup or impurities that prevent the skin breathing properly. Guinot cleansers contain many active ingredients in their cleansers to help your skin, which include; Shea extract for nourishing the skin, Ginseng extract which has anti-aging, regenerating and toning properties – to name a few!
When you go shopping it can be overwhelming with the amount of cleansers on offer, this is going to give you a little guide and the low down on the many cleansers Guinot has to offer!
Cream cleansers are great for both removing makeup and impurities but also amazing for moisturising and softening the skin! The two which Guinot have are ‘Lait Hydra Fraicheur’ which is for all skin types and leaves the skin feeling both cool and refreshed! ‘Lait Hydra Confort’, similar to the previous but is specially for dry skin as it has nourishing properties which soothe skin irritations and adds more moisture to the skin. Both can be applied with cotton wool/pads, with no need for water.
Alongside these cream cleansers, both products have matching toners which are refreshing, completes makeup removal, tones, refreshes, whilst ‘Lotion Hydra Fraicheur’ leaves the skin with intense moisture, whereas ‘Lotion Hydra Confort’, soften, soothes and protects dry skin.
Cleansing waters, I find great for quick easy removal, perfect if you have been out in the evening and want to take your makeup off. ‘Eau Demaquillantre Micellaire’, is Guinot’s cleansing water which is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive. Unlike many cleansing waters, it does not leave the skin feeling stripped but instead leaves the skin feeling softer and fresher after just one use!
Some people can be unsure about using gel cleansers but in fact they are great for removing stubborn eye makeup. Hydra Demaquillant Yeux, removes specifically eye makeup and is formulated to avoid stinging or discomfort around the eye area.
Demaquillant Express Yeux, is a new product in this range and works in two-phases, it removes all makeup but also waterproof eye makeup with minimum effort! If you are used to using waterproof makeup removers you may know what they can sometimes work brilliantly, but also leave a residue on the skin which can feel greasy – this however does not. It is also suited for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.
