Current Favorite Face Wash: Alverde Clear Waschcreme

Excluding cleansing oils and micellar waters, here’s my face wash top cleanser history. I’ve tried a lot of face washing products and for a few years, I was undeniably loyal to La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Cleansing Gel. It was and still is my HG wash for oily/combo skin. I’ve tried the Bioderma Sebium Purifying Foaming Cleansing Gel – as I thought it could potentially be even better than my LRP fave but it was a huge disappointment. Too runny, wasteful formula that costs too much for what it is. I loved Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser for days when I didn’t wear makeup of as my second cleanse – really lovely and gentle. For as long I’ve been loyal to LRP face wash, I’ve been equally enamoured by the Balea Young face wash gel with pink grapefruit – LRP’s perfect replacement when my budget was tight. The one which I find to be miraculous is the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream – did wonders for my combo dehydrated skin. My lavish, pricy and indulgent treat has remained the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel – this is in fact a cleansing balm and it totally justifies its price point. Best all-round makeup remover and cleansing product (equally good in both categories).

Next big thing which now stands next to my ultimate faves is the Alverde Clear Waschcreme (100ml | approx $3). This natural skincare/makeup brand can only be found in dm (drogerie markt) selling points throughout Europe and I highly recommend them – just make sure you do your research to purchase the right products since they are either extremely good or extremely bad. This face washing cream falls into the best of the best category.

Packaged in a simple soft plastic tube with a flip cap, this is the only product I’ve been using on my face along with Theca cleansing oil for months. It is clay based, overall of a natural plant based ingredient list, free from parabens, preservatives, artificial fragrance and animal derived ingredients. It’s intended for skin prone to congestion but – it’s not exclusive to oily or combo skin and even dehydrated and dry skin can use it and reap its benefits. It’s very creamy and resembles a medium thick, smooth paste – it makes me think of toothpaste for some reason (just less thick). It has a sweet herbal/ clay scent which I know isn’t pleasant to everyone’s nose (my husband couldn’t get pass it) but if you can, you’ll be thrilled with the results.

I use it in the morning or at night as my second cleanse (after I’ve removed the bulk of my makeup with either a cleansing oil or a micellar water). It can be used for makeup removal purposes, it’s rather decent in that aspect. It doesn’t foam up, instead it creates a creamy emulsion when in contact with water. What makes it special is the fact it never, ever dries up the skin and it never leaves it feeling tight. It’s pretty much the only product which upon rinsing leaves the feeling of completely purified skin – but without any tightness whatsoever. It keeps my blemishes under control, my dry patches as well – it’s absolutely heavenly. If you haven’t tried it yet, I urge you to do so since it’s fab.

  • Iskljucujuci ulja za skidanje sminke i micelarne vodice, ovo bi bio kratki prikaz cistaca za lice koje bi istakla. Tokom duzeg niza godina sam isprobala pozamasnu kolicinu ovih proizvoda no dobrim dijelom sam bila vjerna La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Cleansing Gel cistacu. Bio je i ostao moja HG umivalica za masnu i mjesovitu kozu. Potom sam isprobala njemu u teoriji jako slican Bioderma Sebium Purifying Foaming Cleansing Gel cistac misleci da bi mogao cak nadmasiti LRP umivalicu. Nazalost, ispostavio se kao malo razocarenje ponajvise zbog rijetke formulacije zbog koje se prebrzo trosio i doziranje je bilo otezano. Mnogo sam voljela Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser njeznu, kremastu umivalicu koju sam cuvala za dane kada nisam nosila sminku ili bih je koristila kao drugi korak u dvostrukom ciscenju lica. Jednako dugo koliko sam bila vjerna LRP umivalici, imala sam uvijek u pricuvi i Balea Young gel za umivanje sa ruzicastim grejpom – bio je idealna zamjena za moj HG cistac kada bi mi budzet bio ogranicen. Umivalica koja mi je tenu pruzila izvrsne rezultate je Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream – idealan izbor za dehidrirani mjesoviti tip koze. Luksuznija umivalica kojom se povremeno volim pocastiti je famozni Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel – ovo je ustvari balzam za ciscenje koze i opravdao je svaki ulozeni novcic. Uopsteno najbolja umivalica posto briljira na polju skidanja sminke jednako kao i u ciscenju koze.
  • Slijedeca umivalica koja sada stoji ravnopravno uz navedene velikane je Alverde Clear Waschcreme (100ml | cca 6KM). Ovaj prirodni brend znate da mozete pronaci samo u dm-u i licno ih jako volim. Jedino na sto trebate obratiti paznju jeste da se prije kupovine raspitate sto tacno nabaviti jer Alverde proizvodi lagano prelaze iz ekstrema u ekstrem – ili su izuzetno dobri ili izuzetno losi. Ova krema za umivanje spada u onu najbolju kategoriju.
  • Upakovana u jednostavnu tubu od mekane plastike, postala je umivalica koju iskljucivo koristim (uz Theca ulje za ciscenje) vec mjesecima i jako sam zadovoljna. Na bazi je gline, uopsteno je solidnih sastojaka biljnog porijekla a ne sadrzi parabene, konzervanse, vjestacke mirise niti sastojke zivotinjskog porijekla. Umivalica je namijenjena kozi sklonoj nesavrsenostima, zacepljenima ali – ne iskljucivo masnom ili mjesovitom tipu vec bi je komotno mogle koristiti i vlasnice dehidrirane i suhe koze. Veoma je kremasta, pomalo slici srednje gustoj i glatkoj pasti (poput razrijedjene, mekanije paste za zube). Ima slatkasto biljni miris uz asocijaciju na glinu. Taj miris nije svima prijatan (suprug nije mogao prijeci preko njega) no ako vam ne smeta, biti cete odusevljene.
  • Koristim ga ujutro za umivanje ili navecer (nakon sto sam uljem ili micelarnom uklonila vecinu sminke sa lica). Mozete ga koristiti i za ukljanjanje sminke posto u tome nije los. Ova umivalica ne pjeni vec u kontaktu sa vodom stvara kremastu emulziju. Ono sto cini ovu umivalicu posebnom je to sto nikada, bas nikada ne isusuje kozu i ne ostavlja je zategnutom. Mislim da je jedini proizvod za umivanje koji mi pruza osjecaj potpuno, dubinski ociscene koze – bez zatezanja. Drzi mi bubuljice pod kontrolom, suhe dijelove obraza takodjer. Ukoliko do sada niste isprobale ovaj proizvod toplo ga preporucujem posto je krasan.

    Koristila sam već jednu umivalicu od Alverde (Aqua waschgel, Meeresalge) i dosta se osjetila na alkohol što mi se nije svidjelo. Ipak, volim Alverde, tako da ću ovoj vjerojatno dati priliku 🙂

    Koristim drugu tubu već – obožavam 😀 super čisti, super nježna i dobro se bori s nepravilnostima 😀 naravno neće ih izbrisati, niti to očekujem od nje, ali bome puuuno manje iskaču nove bubuljice otkad nju koristim
