Evologie Stay Clear Cleanser Review
(photo credit to birchbox.com)
How to Use: Massage a dime-sized amount into skin until it forms a gentle lather..Rinse off and pat skin dry. Follow with moisturizer.
How It Works: Lycopene, a bright red carotene found in tomatoes, works its anti-oxidizing magic to neutralize damaging free radicals. Meanwhile, Evologie’s patent-pending YS3 COMPLEX™ seals in moisture and banishes blemishes. Willow bark extract is an anti-inflammatory agent that reduces redness, while chamomile and honey extracts soothe and moisturize.
Initial Impressions: I received this in my second June 2014 birchbox (read all about that here). I wasn't super impressed with this on my first use- it didn't lather, it doesn't smell like anything, and, in general, it just felt pretty basic.
Final Impressions: My final impressions are actually quite different than my initial impressions! As I kept using it, I loved the way it didn't irritate my skin, which was surprising to me because, usually, anything with willow bark tends to make my skin a little fussy, but maybe the chamomile and honey balanced that out. I liked that it didn't dry out my skin, and left it still feeling moisturized. And I never once broke out while using this product, at all. Not even my usual hormonal breakouts. I stuck to using this product in the morning, only, because I liked the way it made my skin look after rinsing- it made it look soft, and not at all greasy or oily, which some cleansers can do.
Overall, I really loved this and might look into a full-sized purchase when I get through the rest of my cleansers.
