For the last two weeks or even more, my skin was transformed from a fairly normal, smooth complexion to an irritated, bumpy and itchy monstrous of a skin. I was desperate! Never in my life my skin looked so bad!
It took me a while until i realized who the culprit was, as i haven’t changed anything major in my skincare routine and my lifestyle is fairly healthy (decent diet, gallons of water and sleep marathons).
Introducing Garnier Simply Essential 2 in 1 Makeup Remover.
As a cleanser it is brilliant, it removes my mascara like nobody’s business and all for 2,49 euro a pop. I really thought it was my Bifacil replacer – same bi-phasic, oil in water composition at a great price and big bottle.
Unfortunately it broke me out really bad. As i said it took me a while to realize and by a process of elimination i narrowed it down to the cleanser.
Every day my skin was looking worse and feeling very itchy, it was driving me insane. First i thought i had hayfever so i was popping the antihistamines with not much relief. Luckily for me, i had 4 days off last week so i didn’t wear any makeup and didn’t used the cleanser. The symptoms were gone and my skin was recovering slowly. When i went back to work, of course i’ve used it again and in an hour after, the itching began. What can i say, Miss Marple has nothing on me lol
Typical, i find a good and cheap eye makeup remover and I’m allergic to it.
Have you used the Garnier 2in1 before? Wonder if its just me…
