Palmer's Daily Cleansing Gel

Palmer's Daily Cleansing Gel*

I won't talk too much about this product. I probably should... but I won't. All I can really say is... Avoid this cleanser, especially if you've got dry/sensitive skin.

Palmer's sensitive skin range has been reformulated, so I was looking forward to seeing how this cleanser would work for me. The brand holds a very mixed view from myself, as I hate the body lotion but quite like the facial cream. I'm afraid it's gone more negative now though.

I gave this product two weeks to win myself over. I was hoping it would get better, but it didn't and I couldn't handle it anymore. Palmers states that it lifts away dirt, oil and make-up, without making your skin feel dry, tight or stripped. They got it all wrong.

My eye make-up was still intact (it was only a daytime look as well, so not like there was a great deal to take off) after use, and my face felt so incredibly dry and tight afterwards. It was very uncomfortable. Not even my favourite moisturiser settled my skin - it was beyond help. My skin did go slightly patchy as well - my cheeks looked more flushed than usual, which I hate. My cheeks do have a natural blush to them, but it was a lot brighter after this. Not in a good way either.

Needless to say, I didn't even want to give this to a family member or a friend to try after it massively failed for me. This isn't a great product, and it is a real shame... But I'm starting to think that this brand really isn't made for those with dry/sensitive skin. Sorry Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula.

Try using it with a toner if it makes your skin feel tight.

I've got this andI find it drying too. I'm going to have to force myself to use this I think, haven't touched it in ages but don't like waste!
