L’Oreal Paris has extended their skincare line even further with the launch of Fine Flowers, a whole new line-up of cleansing products, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on something and it was the Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream that really grabbed our attention, this is the one we had to try first.
The creamy cleansing balm has a rich, creamy texture which melts when massaged into the skin. We much prefer cleansing creams, balms and oils to foaming cleansers, simply because they don’t dry out the skin and leave it feeling nourished as opposed to stripped of moisture.
The thing with this cleanser though, the instructions say to apply and massage and wipe away with a cotton pad – admittedly, we ignored this and applied to dry skin with our fingers, massaged it in and removed with water and a flannel. This definitely resulted in a better outcome for makeup removal having tried it both ways. Plus, using water to remove the product ensured that we got rid of any product that might be left behind – it does say that using a toner is ideal, and if you’re using the cotton pad method for removal this will definitely be needed.
The L’Oreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream is really soft and easy to use, the cream feels quite thin and applies easily to the skin. When we first used the cleansing cream it does seem a little thin and doesn’t seem likely to be able to remove makeup, but once water is applied it definitely thickens up and removes makeup with ease.
How it works
The rich balm gets to work by melting as you massage it into the skin, breaking down the makeup, dirt and grime. Using a flannel will help you ensure that you remove all traces of this cleaning cream from the skin. However, I recently learned that my boyfriend used this product as a cream when his moisturiser ran out - definitely not encouraging you to use it in this way, but thankfully his skin didn't break out when he used it like this.
The cream cleanser is soft on the skin and is designed so that it can be used on dry and sensitive skin types, however, those who have trouble with fragrance might find it to be a problem. The cleanser includes Rose which is there to help soothe and comfort the skin, and jasmine which is included to protect and moisturiser the complexion.
Creamy texture, doesn’t strip the skin, removes makeup with ease, light fragrance isn’t too overpowering, skin feels soft and supple after use
It’s not the best at removing makeup when using it as it says on the tub, but if you ignore those directions it really is a great cleanser that feels lovely on the skin. The fragrance might be a downside for some skin types, but it’s not terribly overpowering and doesn’t linger for too long on the skin either.
L’Oreal Paris has really impressed us of late with their affordable skincare additions, including the clay masks and face washes, moisturisers and more. The Fine Flowers collection is another big hit from the brand, and we particularly love the Fine Flowers Cleansing Cream.
It’s easy to work with, although the tub design isn’t the most hygienic, and applies easily to the skin helping to dissolve makeup and impurities. Make sure to use water and a flannel to remove all traces of the cleansing cream. But afterwards you skin feels clean, without feeling tight.
The cleansing cream is a great price point, and the delicate blend of flowers, rose and jasmine, are there to leave you with comfortable and fresh skin, every day.
