On one of my many trips to Boots recently I picked up this No.7 Cleansing Gel just as a random purchase (I had a €6.50 off voucher and thought why not). I love oil cleansers/balms so was intrigued by this product. It is formulated as a gel but melts into an oil when applied to the face - perfect for normal to dry skin. If you follow me on Snapchat (@makeupbyrubysue if you fancy a look) then you might have seen me take my makeup off with this already.
For those of you who didn't catch the snaps this is how is went.
It comes out of the tube like a thick yellow paste/gel. I massaged it on to dry skin, all over my face even on my eyes & lashes.(No.7 recommended you apply it to dampened skin though). And like the name suggests it melts onto the skin into a lovely luxurious oil. It contains Rosehip Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Glycerin which makes it great for locking in moisture and makes the gel smell beautifully light and fresh.
If you apply water it will turn milky and you can rinse away any remaining residue but I actually used a warm damp facecloth as this is my favourite way of removing cleanser. I was surprised at how well it dissolved off my makeup even the eyeshadow & mascara. I did need to use a little eye makeup remover to take off whatever what was left on my lashes though. After cleansing my skin felt clean & fresh with no absolutely no tightness.
All in all a great cleanser.
So if you like oil/balm/gel cleansers then this is one for you. The packaging is nice and simple, the product inside does a great job of dissolving off the days dirt & makeup and the price point isn't too bad either. Definitely a repurchase for me. I actually haven't' tried alot of the No7 products but if they are all as good as this I will be very happy. I will be trying more from the range so if you have any recommendations please let me know in the comments below.
You can pick it up in any Boots store for €12.50 (but I'm sure if you are a regular Boots shopper then you will have a skincare voucher somewhere).
I hope you enjoyed reading this...
Until next time....Be Happy
