Hello people! 😀
Mommy came to visit! And obviously, mommy knows me best. So she obviously knows that I love my MAC cleanser but I never have the money. 😛 So she bought some for me! I love you, Ma 😀
Today, I’ll be reviewing the ONLY cleanser I use that is not from Lush. (My skin LOVES Angels On Bare Skin and Aqua Marina so much that it won’t let me use anything else!), i.e. MAC Green Gel Cleanser.
Product Description: “A skin-tingling cleanser with refreshing extracts of cucumber and algae. Full-on foam, but delightfully soap free. Conditions, nourishes, and hydrates leaving skin clean, clear, smooth, and protected”
Price: Rs. 1100
My Experience: This was my first ever MAC product. I come from a small town (Allahabad) and the closest MAC store is 600kms away, in Delhi. I was a MAC Virgin except for the glossy mag pages. 😛 So this came as a gift from my cousin for my 15th birthday. And I fell in love with it! Of course, back then, this was a novelty. I was a water-only girl for my cleansing regime (worked very well until I came to college, Meerut doesn’t suit me) so I would use this whenever I would wear makeup or on special occasions. 😛
Now however, I use this alternately with Lush Angels on Bare Skin and Lush Aqua Marina. It’s a cute bottle, very travel friendly, with the classic thick black screw top lid. The cleanser is a very light green gel. It has a slightly runny consistency. You only need a small amount for the whole face and a bottle easily lasts me 3-4 months, even with regular use.
It smells lovely. Like freshly cut grass. Although the smell doesn’t linger, it makes the cleaning experience lovely. It doesn’t lather a lot, but of course, it IS a gel cleanser. It’s great for when you’re feeling lazy with your make up remover. When I’m too tired or sleepy, I just wash my make up off with this and then wipe my face with baby wipes. Oh, its definitely not for sensitive eyes though. I managed to get some in mine and BOY it burned like hell!
Pros of MAC Green Gel Cleanser
• Gentle but very effective cleanser
• Doesn’t dry my skin out
• Nice smell
• Leaves my skin baby soft
• Helped me remove a nasty acne mark from my forehead, with regular use

Cons of MAC Green Gel Cleanser
