Review of La Vitton Laventine - Olive Forte Cleansing Oil by smarie22
This is a gentle facial cleanser which really gets in there and removes all the makeup, sunscreen and moisturizer at the end of the day. It doesn't overdry, and you can adjust the level of moisture left behind by this product depending on the water temp. you rinse with (hotter water removes all the oils while colder water leaves some behind) so you can cater to your skin's "mood' each day with one product. My only beef is that I don't think this stuff removes mascara as well as I would like unless I use a whole pump just for my eyes--and my mascara isn't even waterproof. It is a little pricey to use a whole pump each night just for my eyes. But it does remove my Sofina sunscreen and makeup! And my face feels so nice once I rinse it off! Will definitely repurchase.
Update: Wow!!! Usually I rub this stuff in for about 30 seconds and then rinse, but last night, I decided to massage this on for about 5 minutes. Holy crap, what a difference! After about 3 minutes, I felt this stuff warm and then melt into my skin--which I cad never felt when I didn't rub it in as long. It got EVERYTHING out of my pores (and felt fabulous at the same time). At the end, there was a white film on my skin which I am assuming was my sunblock that had been drawn out. It was wonderful! I can't wait to go home and repeat this tonight. So for all you ladies who use an oil cleanser (or want to try one) take a couple of extra minutes to really rub this in and it will be so worth it! Super HG!!!!!
UPDATE 3/30/09** I stopped using this. My face was a mess. I don't know that this was the culprit because I was using several products, but I have since switched to Cerave and will likely not use this again. It's too bad because it felt very nice going on, but plain old Cerave will have to do.
