If you have chronically dry skin, or mature skin that can easily feel very stripped and tight, then I can thoroughly recommend StriVectin’s (quite new) Replenishing Cleanser. It’s so rich but it doesn’t leave any residue once rinsed off, which can be a problem with some of the thicker cleansers. I find that I need a washcloth to remove it quickly as rinsing takes an absolute age, it really hangs on in there! Specifically formulated for skin aged 30+ (though as always, this is a very broad generalisation – you wouldn’t want to use it if you were very oily or acne-prone) it concentrates on restoring moisture levels and repairing the skin’s protective barrier, so it’s a good little addition into an ‘anti-ageing’ routine.
Some people avoid cleansing because everything that they try leaves their skin feeling taught and delicate – if that’s the case for you then I would say that this would be absolutely worth a shot. I already have quite a ‘thing’ for StriVectin’s eye cream – I think it’s fabulous, just very simple and effective – and I think that the cleanser is a great addition to their very small range. A good ‘changing of the seasons’ investment for those who suffer with dry patches or flakiness as soon as the central heating gets cranked up!
