|Glytone Cleansers 6.7 oz. $30|
"Roses" are having a beauty moment (probably for the 11,000 time) and I have been testing a cleanser infused with lots of it. While it did a nice job of gentle cleansing with my beloved Clarisonic Mia, it was a wee too cloying, particularly in the morning, so I needed to move on.
I spied a never opened Glytone Step-Up Mild Gel Wash, with a "Free Acid Value" of 4.7 in my vanity. I know I put it there, but other than that, I have no clue where it came from, but now I'm glad I have it.
This exquisitely light aqua gel, does a fabulous job of removing every trace of makeup without any sense of stripping or drying. Very little product is needed. If I had been a little swifter, I would have realized the "gly" in Glytone, represents "glycolic acid", an anti-aging skincare ingredient I firmly believe in.
I did a little online research and found Glytone's cleansers (and there are several), to be highly rated by users at Dermstore.com and endorsed by well known dermatologists who use it exclusively in their practices.
It is an extensive line that tackles various skin issues like rosacea, hyperpigmentation, acne, anti-aging and post-op needs. I found the company history to be interesting. It makes sense to me now why so many physicians embrace it.
And so, having learned something new today and have the pleasure of clean, scent free, glowing skin to show for it, I'm going to go shopping in my goodie closet more often.
