Makeup removers I feel are often ignored in my opinion. Having a good makeup remover or cleanser is probably the most important part of your daily routine especially if you use makeup on daily basis like kajal/eyeliners/compacts etc. Maybelline Eye N Lip makeup remover is my absolute favorite and I don’t know remember the no of bottles I have used up. For face I love love cetaphil cleanser for sensitive skin, its very gentle and perfect for everyday cleansing rountine. But there are times when you need a strong cleanser especially when using cream based foundations and concealers. I feel Cetaphil is too gentle for that and does not remove complete makeup.
So during my last visit to Kryolan store in Mumbai I picked up their cleansing cream. The SA at the store mentioned that this cleansing cream can be used for all kinds of makeup removal and is gentle on skin and will not break me out. Looking at the ingredient list I highly doubted their claim but then the quantity was great for the price so I got it anyway.
My thoughts:- I have used this cleansing cream quite a lot of times especially when I use my kryolan paint stick as foundation. The first time I opened the tub I was surprised as it looks exactly like vicks vaporub minus the strong smell. The consistency of this cleansing cream is quite confusing as it looks quite stiff in the tub but when it comes in contact with the skin it melts! It removes every single trace of makeup! Yes! I have even used this to remove my eye makeup and it does the job effectively. Though I found it does not remove mascara that well. I think this basically works well for all cream based makeup.
The only problem is that it leaves the skin a bit waxy and oily though this has never broken me out but I hate that oily feeling on my face. Using a face wash is a must after the cleansing.
How I use it:- I take a small quantity of the cream between my fingers and apply it all over my face gently massaging. As soon as the cream comes in contact with the skin it melts the entire makeup. Later I use cotton pads to clean my face.

Rating:- 3.5 out of 5
Do I recommend:- Yes and No..Yes if you use heavy makeup or if you a makeup artist this cleanser would come handy but definitely not for everyday use. Extremely oily skinned beauties stay away from this though it never broke me out but why take a chance 🙂
