Finding the right cleanser is an important building block to setting up your skin care routine. Using something that will help remove the dirt and grime from your skin without stripping it of the protective barriers that it needs. If we lived in an ideal world, without pollutants and the harsh sun’s rays, then we could rely on our body’s natural systems to keep our skin in balance and protected. Unfortunately with all the additions from our man made environment combined with our changes in diet and lifestyle, we now need extra help to remove the pollutants, maintain balance and protect our skin from the environment. We’ve been trialling our new Societe Pure Everyday Cleanser to see how it impacts our skin care routine and the appearance of our skin. This cleanser is packed full of antioxidants combined with moisturising ingredients making it gentle and also providing added free-radical protection.
Societe Pure Everyday Cleanser
Treating Oily Skin and Enlarged Pores
“I have reasonably oily skin and enlarged pores, so I’m pretty particular about the cleanser I use. I like a gel over a cream cleanser and I have never really liked the feel of an oil cleanser. Even though my skin has a tendency to be oily, I can become dry around the nose and eyes, so I don’t like a deep cleanser or one that contains glycolic.
The Societe Pure Everyday Cleanser is a gel and is ticking all my boxes! I have been using it for the last two weeks, morning and night, and I am really happy with how my skin looks and feels. It easily removes my makeup and doesn’t feel harsh around my eyes.
Competing against an old favourite
“I have been quite addicted to the cleanser I have been using religiously for the last nine months, so when Meg cracked her whip again and asked me to trial another product (she’s such a hard task master), and this time a cleanser, I’m sure you can understand, I was very dubious. There was no possible way this one would compare. BUT! Oh my goodness in a bottle, it’s amazing.
The product itself feels luxurious and it lathers instantly. Whilst rubbing furiously into my eyes, just to check it didn’t sting, I squinted through the silky, bubbly lather and could see all my eye makeup dissolving perfectly. So it’s not only great for your regular am/pm cleansing, but also removing makeup.
My skin was left feeling so refreshed, which apparently I can attribute to Cardomom’s cousin, Aframomumj Melegueta, and if you know Cardamom, then you know what a lovely family they are. Aloe, Algae, Bergamot and the Citruses join with Momma J (nickname) and together, harmoniously, produce a truly wonderful product.
I am very impressed, and so much so, I think I may change my religion.
PS. Rubbing eyes furiously not recommended, no stinging involved.”
Moisturising as well as cleansing – Societe Pure Everyday Cleanser
“My first reaction to this cleanser was the scent – or lack thereof. My cleanser has a very strong scent, often overpowering first thing in the morning. It was refreshing to use product that I had to really focus on to smell. If you like products with low scent then this is a big tick.
I was also impressed at how little I needed to cover my face and still feel cleansed. It was thick and lathered enough to feel really clean without much product. The follow on effect with my skin care routine has been using less moisturiser both in the morning and evening and somehow still having softer skin. I like the fact that it is filled with antioxidants – so if you’re a quick routine person, and don’t want to add lots of different products every day – then I’d definitely try this.
If your partner is like mine and uses your cleanser in the shower but refuses to use moisturisers or serums (too girly), then they’ll have a healthier moisture balance too – bonus!”
Cleansing dry skin
“I’m just putting it out there, I unknowingly reached for my shampoo yesterday morning and proceeded to wash my face with it, thinking it was this Societe cleanser!! My review was about to be a lot different to the one I’m giving now hahaha!!
I used the Societe cleanser this morning, and in comparison, it was of course gorgeous. It has a nice thick feeling and doesn’t feel astringent at all. It’s rich, lathers up well and removes all my makeup without leaving me with that dreaded ‘tight’ feeling.
When choosing a cleanser, the main selling point for me is that my skin feels fresh, clean and ready for the serums I’m about to apply without feeling stripped of moisture. With dry skin it’s actually quite difficult to find a cleanser that doesn’t have me reaching for my serums immediately.
This ticked all the boxes for me, I’ll definitely use the entirety, and see how my skin goes!”
