I definitely need to have some confidence in my cleanser, so I was happy to hop on the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser ($28) train. This cleanser is different from others in that it is a hybrid – cleanser and hydrating serum all in one. IT Cosmetics seems to be the master of multi-tasking, so of course this type of cleanser only makes sense! Why not cleanse and treat all at the same time? Works for me.sample affiliate links
I was concerned that a cleanser/serum wouldn’t completely cleanse all of my makeup, since I tend to use full coverage products. If I don’t fully cleanse my skin I get some mean breakouts. I also thought it might be too heavy for my t-zone slightly oily skin. However, I was pleasantly surprised – this is very effective cleanser that definitely does the complete cleansing job. I use my Foreo LUNA, and I am sure you Clarisonic users will also be happy with this cleanser as well. I also tried it the old-fashioned way, just using my hands, and got good results – but I will say my results were even better with the LUNA. There isn’t a ton of lather since the cleanser is sulfate and soap-free, but you do get enough to feel that emotional satisfaction for cleaning that I find is helpful on some strange level.
The serum portion includes collagen and hyaluronic acid, which leaves skin nicely hydrated and plumped up right after cleansing. This means there isn’t that tight, cleansed feeling – instead, skin is soft and youthful looking, which I definitely prefer! I am thoroughly enjoying this cleanser and will use the entire tube and am betting it will be a repurchase for me.
