With the great success of L’Oreal Sublime Soft Gentle Micellar solution, I gotta tell you about the rest of the products I bought 🙂
The Sublime Radiance Sensational cleansing oil, meant for dull skin, is to remove makeup (even waterproof) instantly without a greasy finish.
In a few words, this cleansing oil combines 2 steps of the oil cleansing method (cleanse with oil, then follow up with a cleanser) into one and save you time.
2-3 pumps of the oil to your dry hands, massage on dry face AND eyes, emulsify with a few drops of water, then rinse. A bit of cloudiness might happen when the oil is rubbed over your eyes and lashes but it won’t last. Try to keep your eyes close as much as you can while washing 🙂
The oil just disappears without a trace when you wash it off, and it probably remove 98% of my waterproof makeup. My face feels clean, soft and nourished after each wash. Sublime Radiance is one of the most comfortable cleansing oils I have tried. The pump is great to dispense the oil and the scent is delightful and light to add.
Ingredients: Paraffinum Liquidum, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Ethylhexylstearate, Isohexadecane, PEG-20 Gylceryltriisostearate, Water, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum (F.I.L.: C158176/4).
The bottle is 150ml, same price point as the Micellar solution.
From the same Sublime Radiance line, there is a Revealing exfoliator. Still with the same refreshing scent, with the micro beads working to exfoliate and clean your face.
The beads are gentle enough to be used daily on the face (not suggested for the eyes). I rotate my cleansers often, but during the testing period, this works really well. Not sure if it is a radiant look, but like the cleansing oil, the exfoliator offers a post-wash good feeling. A nice and gentle scrub to have, if you like the scent.
Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Polyethylene, Acrylates Copolymer, Coco-betaine, Benzyl Salicylate, Citric Acid, Glycerin, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Prunusarmeniaca Seed powder, Salicylic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Hydroxide, Parfum (F.I.L.: C43258/2).
And from the line that is meant for my skin type (normal to combination), the Sublime Fresh Purifying gel wash peaks my interest.
And yes, it cleans my face nicely but nothing extraordinary. The scent, however, is a bit overwhelmingly soapy, even though it does not contain any soap. I prefer the scrub over this gel wash, after all said and done.
Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Coco-betaine, Glycerin, Sodium Chloride, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Sodium Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Salicylic Acid, Polyquaternium-7, Benzyl Alcohol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Menthol, Geraniol, Linalool, Hydroxycitronella, Limonene, Citronellol, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Parfum (F.I.L.: K51645/2).
The tubes for the scrub and the wash are both 150ml, with same retail price as the oil.
So, the winning products in my book are the micellar solution and the cleansing oil. What Sublime product(s) are you going to try?
