Annemarie Borlind- Cleansing Gel for Combination skin

In this polluted environment, it is so difficult to maintain skin texture and moisture. So, it’s equally important for us to use a nice cleansing gel which will help to remove impurities and dust from skin. It’s been a year that I have been slowly shifting to more of natural and organic products which is cruelty free, dermatologically tested. Today I will be reviewing Annemarie Borlind cleansing gel, a German Organic cosmetic brand, which was started by Annemarie Linder, a beauty therapist. I started to like this brand as it uses natural ingredients in their formulations with organic botanical extracts and their products are cruelty-free. Though being pricey I felt like giving it a try and here are my thoughts on this product-

My Experience with Annemarie Borlind Cleansing Gel-

This is a beautiful transparent glass bottle with the visibility of product inside it and a white color pump on it which looks very classy. All the details are being mentioned on the bottle which is self-explanatory. The gel is of creamy color and smells good. It has a liquid consistency which is runny and need to be careful while taking it on palm. The best thing about this bottle is that it has a pump which give me charge in my hand for the amount of product. Being a glass bottle, it is bit risky to carry around.

Coming towards application part, I have to pump 2-3 times to have a sufficient amount of product in my hand. It has a very mild fragrance which does not stay for longer time. Don’t worry if it does not create enough latter, the product is very effective and working well on the skin. After massaging the gel in the circular motion, wash the face with the normal or luke warm water and you will really wonder to see such a clean and soft skin. Skin feels very subtle and velvety when touched. You can also see that it really removes excess oil, dirt and impurities from the skin without making it dry or dehydrated.

Its been a more than a month for me to use this product and I am very satisfied with its result. It has reduced my uneven skin tone and lightened my blemishes. Plus, it has improved my skin texture by making it appear more soft, clean and silky. As I have a sensitive skin I haven’t witnessed any break out on my face while using this product which is so important in today’s era where we are surrounded by pollution, harsh sun rays, dirt and so many chemical particles in air. The best part about this product is, it uses natural ingredients in their formulations with organic botanical extracts and their products are cruelty-free.

Overall, I really liked this product very much. Though it is bit pricy but after effect worth all the amount spend on this product. Ladies who suffers from acne, uneven skin tone, blemishes need to try this product because it will really work on them. For better result can also use this cleansing gel twice a day. In-spite of removing excess oil from my skin, it keeps my skin hydrated and does not make it dry. It really worked best on my skin and it’s a go-go from my side.
