As a self-professed lazy girl when it comes to skincare, I am always on the lookout for products that are multi-faceted, easy to use, and leave my skin feeling fresh, spot free and fabulous without having to go through hundreds of steps.
ESPA Skincare has been a recent discovery for me in the beauty world. Before, I was a distant admirer of their pretty packaging and luxurious product layouts in shops. But, after trying their Herbal Spafresh Spritzer, bathing in their bath foam and bath oils, I have really been looking forward to giving more of the range a go.
So, when a beautiful packaged miniature of the ESPA Optimal Skin ProCleanser popped through my post box* last week, you can imagine how excited I was! From the minute I clapped eyes on the gorgeous purple packaging, I knew I was on to a winner (I know you're not meant to judge a book by it's cover, but I just can't help myself when it comes to beauty products.)
As soon as the scent of the ProCleanser drifts into your nostrils you are transported far away and in to your own personal spa. The blend of ingredients really does create a truly opulent smell that I find really attractive and relaxing. There is nothing more enjoyable than coming home and using your own little tube of luxury to remove your make-up. It makes taking off my face a joy rather than a job. Finding products that offer you that little glimpse of glamour without breaking the bank is really important.
The consistency of the ProCleanser is light and delicate on the skin. The jojoba spheres that work to gently exfoliate the skin are small and not overly abrasive. After massaging the cleanser into your skin for a few seconds they begin to melt away, leaving the cleanser with a smooth and silky soft layer on your face. With a quick sweep of a muslin cloth, flannel, or clean hands over the ProCleanser, all remnants are gone, leaving your skin soft, supple, and smell sensational.
Even with the added exfoliating aspect of the cleanser, my skin is still left feeling really silky after every time I have used the ProCleanser. For someone with really sensitive skin, this is usually unheard of. Normally, I would have to throw the moisturiser on myself to keep my skin happy, but I don't need to overdo it after using the ProCleanser. I have been using it 1-2 times a day, and following using the cleanser with the ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum and the two combined are a match made in heaven for me. It also compliments the Spafresh Spritzer really well, which I use every morning. Since using the ProCleanser and Proserum as part of my skincare routine, skin over the last few days seems so much clearer. I've not had any breakouts, and I feel so confident. And I'm just about to have my *whispers* monthly visitor, so you can imagine how munch of a breakdown my skin might be having right now! I actually feel proud of my face, and even pointed out to Boyfriend yesterday how clear it seemed...."Have you seen this? It's my face....And I'm not wearing make up!"
What I love so much about the ProCleanser is the multi-purpose aspect that it has. It doesn't only cleanse the skin, but gentle exfoliates it too. And if you want to, you can use the ProCleanser as a mask. And it has been kind and accommodating to my sensitive skin, leaving me with no irritation whatsoever. It really does tick all the boxes I look for in skincare products. Plus, it smells divine. What more could you ask for?
If you are still searching for that skincare product that you can use with ease, that cleanses, nourishes, and keeps your skin feeling (and smelling) sexy then definitely give the ProCleanser a go. It has seriously been impressing me, and has made what once was a dreaded daily task, a fun aspect of my beauty regime.

* I registered online for ESPA's blog competition, and ESPA kindly sent me out a sample size of the Optimal Skin ProCleanser to try for my entry to their "Optimal ProCleanse Blog Competition." I also received a sample size of the Optimal Skin ProSerum. This has not, nor will ever not affect my opinions on ESPA products. They are 100% my own, 100% honest, and informed my experiences alone.
