After trying Annmarie Gianni’s aloe-herb cleanser (review) I wanted to try and find something similar without the high international shipping costs. I liked the idea of a creamy cleanser that still removed oil, dirt and makeup, but without leaving my skin with that tight, dry feeling. After reading a bunch of reviews and ingredients lists my internet travels brought me to Pai Organics.
Their trial/sample size of the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser was 50mLs! Great for being able to truly test out it’s effects on my skin! And with a nominal shipping fee, I couldn’t turn it down. Look what it arrived with:
Not too bad for just a sample. Pai certainly knows how to care for it’s customers. I’m already planning for how I’m going to use the cloth bag!
Alright. Back to the cleanser. It is very rich, thick and creamy and feels very luxurious on my skin. After I’ve rinsed it off my face feels decently hydrated, and very clean. I couldn’t get away without a toning mist or moisturizer, but in comparison to the Annmarie Gianni cleanser I feel like this one does a better job at cleaning my skin. As far as a makeup remover, this product took everything off without difficulty. Even lipstick and eye makeup! I have only given this product a week for my skin to adjust to it, but so far so good. If my skin continues to be happy with it I may have found my new go-to cleanser!
