GlamGlow Youth Cleanse Daily Exfoliating Cleanser

4/07/2017


Next week my in-depth skincare routine post is coming but I want to shed light on a few products beforehand. As I've made it clear on many occasions, skincare is a big deal to me. I may not always have the latest products on the market incorporated in my skincare routine and not all of the things I use are expensive but I always do the best I can with what I have. Also, it's been shown many times that a price tag doesn't come with a quality guarantee but it's not strange to feel affectionate, support and trust certain brands with which we have good experience.

As a general rule in my books, taking off makeup and cleansing the skin is something I, perhaps, take most time with. There are great affordable skincare cleansers (such as alverde Clear Waschcreme) and awesome oil-based makeup removers that won't break the bank (Theca Face Tonic). I test and use many products so high-end ones also are included and this one is actually a really good cleanser which may even justify its price being a face cleanser and a gentle exfoliant in one.

GlamGlow YouthCleanse Daily Exfoliating Cleanser (150g | $39) is basically a mud cleanser. Key ingredients are kaolin (decongests pores), microalgae scrub and phytic acid (exfoliates) along with gentle beads. Packaging is lush although bulky so I keep it at home. But the pump is well done and practical. It comes out of the pump as a khaki/muted olive colored creamy paste. You immediately can tell that it's mud based and that there are some soft and sparse granules inside. Add water and it transforms immediately into a foamy cleanser but its lather isn't rich although efficient enough. It has a green/fruity/fresh scent . 

This cleanser is absolute perfection for oily skin, combination skin and skin which suffers from congestion - it's basically heaven if you love a feeling of a mud mask but you don't want to spend 20 minutes waiting for the darn thing to dry. One pump is enough to thoroughly cleanse the entire face and neck. You can use it on dry skin and then add the water but I prefer to dampen my hands and face and then massage it all in. It does make skin look brighter by a shade after use, pores are clean and refined whilst the skin's texture is absolutely smooth. 

Although it is advertised as a daily cleanser, anyone with dry or sensitive skin may want to use this only two or three times a week since it leaves skin feeling squeaky clean. It's my  second cleanser at night or my morning cleanser at least 4x times a week and it keeps my skin spot-free. Glamglow Thirstymud mask compliments it beautifully so I use it after a cleanse whenever I have time.

  • Iduće sedmice je na rasporedu detaljan članak o mojoj njezi kože lica ali sam prije toga željela i zasebno da spomenem neke proizvode. Kao što nerijetko kažem, njegu kože volim i u nju ulažem truda i vremena koliko god mogu. Možda u rutini nemam uvijek posljednje novitete i ne koristim uvijek skupocjene proizvode ali se svaki put potrudim da izvučem najbolje od onoga što imam. Također se pokazalo da cijena ne garantuje kvalitet ali isto tako nije neobično da smo privržene nekim brendovima sa kojima imamo pozitivna iskustva.
  • Pravilo koje se kod mene ne mijenja jeste da nikada ne žurim i nisam polovična po pitanju skidanja šminke i čišćenja kože. Postoje čistači kože koje volim, koristim i preporučujem a da su veoma ugodnih cijena (poput alverde Clear Waschcreme).  Također sam pronašla uljane skidače šminke koji su izvrsni a ne koštaju puno (Theca Face Tonic). Imajte na umu da koristim i testiram brojne proizvode s ciljem sakupljanja informacija i iskustava a neki od njih su i skupi. Onaj o kojem pišem u nastavku je specifičan ali bi mogao opravdati cijenu bude li odgovarao vašem tipu kože.
  • GlamGlow YouthCleanse Daily Exfoliating Cleanser (150g | 66KM u Inoma Concept Store, ALTA) je ukratkio, čistač na bazi gline. Ključni sastojci su kaolin (otčepljuje pore), piling od mikroalgi i fitinska kiselina (nalazi se u žitaricama, mahunarkama, orašastim plodovima i sjemenkama) koja pilinguje kožu. Pakovanje mi se mnogo sviđa iako je kabasto pa ga držim kod kuće ali je funkcionalno i lako je dozirati količinu. Iz pumpice izlazi u obliku kremaste paste khaki/svijetlo maslinaste boje. Odmah biva jasno da sadrži glinu i sitne, meke perlice koje nježno pilinguju kožu. Ćim joj dodate vodu pretvara se u nježnu pjenu koja nije bogata ali radi svoj posao. Ima miris koji bih opisala kao zelen/voćan/svjež.
  • Ovaj čistač je kao stvoren za masnu kožu, mješovitu kožu i kožu sklonu začepljenjima. Bukvalno je perfektan ako inače volite maske na bazi gline ali vam se ne da čekati 20 minuta da se maska osuši pa da je još kasnije čistite iz obrva, kose itd. Jedna pumpa daje dovoljno proizvoda za temeljito čišćenje cijelog lica i vrata. Možete je koristiti odmah preko suhe kože i potom dodati vodu. Ja prvo volim samo malo rukom proći ispod česme i tapkajućim pokretima navlažiti lice dlanovima a potom umasirati GlamGlow čistač. Ono što radi bez sumnje je da čini ten bar za nijansu svjetlijim, pore su čiste i blago sužene a koža znatno zaglađena.
  • Iako se ovaj čistač prodaje u funkciji dnevnog umivanja mislim da bilo ko sa osjetljivom ili suhom kožom ne bi trebalo da ga koristi više od 2-3 puta sedmično jer koža poslije korištenja ostaje brutalno čista. Kod mene je u funkciji drugog čistača navečer i jutarnjeg barem 4x sedmično i pomaže mi da držim bubuljice pod kontrolom. Poslije nje je super koristiti Glamglow Thirstymud masku jer zajedno tako fino balansiraju kožu.
