Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser // Rivitalize & Glow Serum
Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Skin Cleanser* is a quality makeup removing cleanser which has taken the place of my beloved Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm as I've been feeling a little bored with the same old routine day in and out and was looking to get a little experimental (I've also adopted using Avene Cleanance Gel Cleanser as a second step to mix things up -- watch out for this crazy girl!). The switch up has actually been working out really well, so I'm not running back to my old routine anytime soon.
I apply a good sized dollop of the Miracle Cleanser* to my dry face, enjoy the fresh and natural scent, and work it into my skin. It rubs in very smoothly, despite not being an oil based cleanser, and comes off easily with a quick wipe over with it's accompanied washcloth. I haven't tested it, but I suspect if I did a once over with a cotton pad of Bioderma there would be very little to no makeup left on my skin at all. I have about 3/4 of the tub left, but I suspect I will be purchasing this once it's used up.
I apply the Revitalize & Glow Serum* after a second cleanse, whatever mask and toner I may or may not be using at the moment, and some La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (if it's nighttime). It sinks into my skin within seconds, feels light and airy (not tacky in the slightest), smells nice, and wears very well under makeup. Combine that with some Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream and I'm left with soft, hydrated skin that honestly looks more glowy than it has in ages (thanks to also drinking LOTS (!!!) of water daily). I've been looking for a good anti-aging serum since forever; so, despite the fact it's a tad pricey, I've got plans to buy a replacement once this runs out next week.
I can't really think of any negative things to say; I really love both products and would 100% drop my hard earned money down to buy each of them... and probably some more products I'm curious about from the line... my bank account is super thrilled about that. Not.
*When I was contacted about my potential interest in sampling Aurelia skincare for review I was immediately sold upon reading the word probiotic. I'm a huge fan of probiotics -- I take them multiple times a day orally and credit them with helping quell my crazy chin acne situation. I was not paid to write this post. I accepted these products for review.
