Review of Unlisted Brand Albolene cleanser by joymelissa
Great basic moisturizing cleanser. I was a bit hesitant to try this since it looked like Vaseline & I have cystic acne from time to time. I took a chance since I really needed a moisturizing cleanser in order to continue my anti-aging & anti-acne regime.
I like to use this mostly in the mornings to wash off my Retin-A or Proactiv treatment from the night before. I apply it to damp skin & mix a small amount of water with it, then I apply in circular motions and rinse off with water & a washcloth. I sometimes use a Yes to Cucumbers wipe or Purpose cleanser afterwards if I feel I need it.
Use less than you think you need (about a dime size, or a nickel size at most) if you get acne from time to time because you want the smallest amount possible to stay on your skin after you cleanse so your pores can breathe. The trick is that your skin should feel moisturized afterwards...if it feels greasy after you wash it off you used too much.
I have only used this during the colder months as I am not sure this would be right for my skin in the summertime.
P.S. It is similar to the very expensive Eve Lom cleanser, yet I like Albolene better.
