Whether I am going out or not, I always put on make-up in the morning. I think it’s important to look your best every day. But it is just as important to take all that make-up off again at night. As a rebellious teen I sometimes slept in my make-up (bad teenage Melissa) but I have learned the importance of cleansing your skin every night. E-ve-ry night. No matter how tired, hurried, tipsy or whatever you are. I really can’t stress it enough: you always have to cleanse your skin, even if you are already half asleep (why do they play the best movies at 2AM?) or if the mirror suddenly looks like a mirror from a house of mirrors (damn those cocktails!). For the past few weeks I have been cleansing my skin in the morning and in the evening with the Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk. Let’s have a closer look together.
The Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk is a purifying milk from the German natural cosmetics brand Safeas. It deeply cleanses the skin without being aggressive. The formula with olive extract and jojoba oil nourishes and softens the skin, and gently cleanses it. According to Safeas even people with extremely sensitive or irritated skin can use the Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk to remove dirt and make-up.
I personally always use make-up remover first to remove my eye and face make-up (yep, even my foundation) so that most of my make-up is already off before I really start to deep cleanse. If I don’t, then I will just create this kind of abstract painting with swirls of color everywhere on my face, and that doesn’t seem very efficient. So first eye make-up remover. And then I use the Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk. I apply the milk with my fingers and massage it going in circles. And then I just take it all off with water, followed by a bit of toner to close my pores. That is my evening routine. My morning routine is a bit simpler. In the AM I just use the Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk after washing my face with water and before applying moisturizer.
The texture of the Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk is light and milky. The smell is very neutral and delicate. After cleansing my skin feels really clean and baby soft. And I know how that feels, because a couple of weeks ago we welcomed a cute little baby into the family (congratulations Nele and Bram) and I just couldn’t stop touching Mila’s super soft cheeks during the baby visit.
Bottom line? The Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk is a very decent cleanser. It really gets the job done, and because of the all-natural ingredients in the product I would definitely recommend it.
The Safeas Olive Sensitive Cleansing Milk is available at Thetwistshop and costs 27.40 CHF.
