My Experience: We all have our favourite skin care brands, the ones that impress us time and again and just seem to work for us. For me, that’s Elemis. I’ve used a ton of Elemis products over the years and I’ve always been happy with the packaging, the quality and the results. And one of my all-time favorite products is their Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser. The packaging is bright white and sleek, very minimal and extremely durable; I can toss it into my suitcase without worrying about it breaking or leaking. I love a well designed pump and this one dispenses just the right amount of cream in one pump. The smell is divine. Brazilian orange, lavender, ylang ylang and patchouli create a harmonious scent that’s both soothing and subtle. It’s like a spa brought to your home. You are meant to massage the cleanser into dry skin for a minute until it has warmed and loosened, then remove it with warm damp mitts. I skip the mitts (because I don’t have any and I like to keep things simple) and just rinse away with warm water. It also works well with a Clarisonic. The results are impressive. My skin looks brighter, more fresh, more plump. It feels clean and velvety soft. Even the splotchy redness in my cheeks is calmed, and with regular use is significantly reduced. Oh, and it removes eye makeup without irritating my sensitive eyes. Amazing! Now, there’s no bones about it, this cleanser is expensive. But there are options. Elemis quite often includes the travel size in gift packs, which is a good way of trying different products without shelling out a lot of dough on the individual full sizes. Another alternative is Ebay, where I often get the full and travel sizes. Anyway, this is possibly my favorite cleanser. I may stray, but I always come back to it. Love it.

The Skinny: A gentle, dreamy cleanser. This leaves skin feeling velvety soft and looking radiant. And the smell is lovely. Possibly my favorite cleanser.
