For nearly half a year, Purifying Care Cleansing Gel from German organic cosmetics brand Annemarie Börlind has been my favourite. I will definitely include it in the list of “Beauty Products You Have to Buy in Germany,” which I’m planning to publish very soon, but for now I will tell you more about the gel.
There are a couple of things I like about Annemarie Börlind: it has a broad spectrum of products that suit different skin types, its affordable (I can’t say that it’s cheap, but the average price across the range is lower than, for instance, Dr. Hauschka‘s, which is also natural and German), it has neat packaging, and most importantly, so far I’ve been pleased with each and every product I’d tried.
Purifying Care Cleansing Gel has a fairly liquid-y consistency. As I’ve been washing my face with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser for a while, it took me some time to get accustomed to using a smaller amount of product than before. Luckily, you don’t need that much of it anyway, as it lathers really well and turns into a gentle foam once it’s on your skin. It also cleanses very well and if after washing you prefer to use tonic, you’ll notice that the cotton pad won’t have any traces of dirt or make-up. What makes it really stand out for me is the fact that I can use it twice a day and my skin doesn’t feel either dry or strained. With some of the gels I used before, when applied both in the mornings and at night, they made my skin very sensitive and drained, and the feeling stayed even after moisturizing. This is not the case with Purifying Care, however, it doesn’t mean you can forget about your day and night creams.
It costs 11€ for 150ml, and will last you at least a couple of months. So if you are looking for a deep cleansing but still gentle gel – I can definitely recommend Purifying Care.
