Cleansers are one of the most important steps in your skincare regime but while they do an important job, they can be a bit well boring compared to the more exciting results often seen by serums, masks and night creams.
So I thought that is, until Image Vital C Hydrating Cleanser came into my life. Having used some of my mother’s cleanser one evening when I had run out of mine I was immediately hooked! I have extreme love for this product to the extent that now when I use other cleansers I kind of feel like I’m cheating on my own…. I know I know! but honestly it’s just that good! Unlike so many other cleansers that just you know, take off your make up and well cleanse your face, yes fine but just functional. This was the first cleanser I ever used that actually felt loaded with benefits for my skin.
Not only does it cleanse your face beautifully, removing make up and the days grime but it’s so creamy and hydrating that your skin actually feels moisturised after using before you’ve even followed up with your other products. And after using this cleanser I found my skin was more hydrated and had a definite glow to it without changing anything else in my regime.
So what makes this cleanser so good? Well it boasts an impressive 20% Vitamin A, C and E for a start which are the like the holy grail of anti-ageing skincare ingredients. As Image Skincare is a cosmeceutical product line it also contains higher percentages of active ingredients than many cosmetic brands and can therefore only be sold by licensed professionals.
You might think this would make it more expensive but Image skincare is very competitively priced this cleanser will set you back about €30 for a 177.6ml bottle. Using this twice a day and double cleansing when wearing make-up this lasted me a good six months so it really does go a long way for your money.
According to Image this cleanser is ideal for dehydrated, sensitive skin types as well as those exposed to pollution, smoking and all skin types looking for more hydration. I would agree with this, my sensitive, dehydrated skin LOVED this cleanser but equally its ingredient content and hydrating formula means anyone who is looking for a cleanser with some serious anti-ageing benefits added in will get on with this.
