Until fairly recently I haven’t really cared all that much about the cleansing part of my skincare routine. I’d really use just about anything that effectively took my makeup off and I didn’t much care if it was luxury, drugstore or otherwise.
As you probably know if you’ve been reading here for a while, I use A LOT of the Le Metier de Beaute skincare line (see here and here for old favorites!). I’ve had a good relationship with the company through Neiman Marcus and have had a chance to try a lot of their new products, all of which I’ve been really happy with. Well, until recently, they only had one cleanser and I really didn’t share much about it. Now, there are three Le Metier de Beaute cleanser options to choose from and they’re all very different. I wanted to do a round up of all of them together, show you what they look like and that way, if you’re in the market for a new cleanser, this might help you choose one!
When I use it: I prefer to use this cleanser at night. It really does a great job of taking off my makeup and it makes my skin feel nice and hydrated at the end of the day. You shake it up, put one or two pumps in your hand and then massage on your face. I actually like to foam mine up a little bit before rinsing off.
Why I like it: I’m a fan of face oils to begin with, so when the Replenishing Oil Cleanser came out, I was really excited to try it. It is very hydrating and leaves your skin very soft after washing it away.
What else?: You can also use a couple of pumps on a cotton pad for a quick makeup remover on your lips (great for removing a darker lip color or a long-wearing lipstick) or eyes.
When I use it: This one is also a brand new formula for Le Metier de Beaute and it is an exfoliating gel cleanser. I actually like to use this one in the mornings, often after I get home from a workout. I like the oil better for removing makeup, but I like this one to do before I put my makeup on. It just makes me feel clean and polished for the day!
Why I like it: I like this one because it is a very gentle exfoliating cleanser that I could use every day, if I wanted to. I used to be really good about exfoliating but when I’m short on time, I don’t want to cleanse, then exfoliate and then continue. This takes away that additional step and gets it all done in one!
What else?: This cleanser is also packed with Vitamin A, E and C which all help with wrinkles and fading dark spots. That’s another thing I love about LMdB, everything works really hard to make your skin as perfect as possible!
When I use it: I use this one with my Clarisonic a few times a week and then sort of whenever I just feel like using a simple cleanser. I’ll use it at night if I didn’t put on makeup that day or I’ll use it in the morning if my skin is feeling sensitive. It’s just a great basic cleanser.
Why I like it: This one is sort of the original cleanser in the line. It’s very soothing and it pairs so well with the toner product. It helps take off makeup but also leaves my skin very soft and smooth.
What else?: When I’m traveling, this is the only one I’ll take with me. It’s really versatile and when I’m on the go, it’s the only one I need!
