Once during a torturous visit to Walmart, I noticed Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash for normal to oily skin. I alternate between bar, gel and cream face wash and I was looking for a new gel based cleanser. I researched the product online when I got home and decided to give it a whirl due to the price and benefit claims. What I really like about this cleanser is that it is 100% oil free and soap free. So I don’t need to worry about my chin or t-zone getting extra oily or the harsh effects soap can have on delicate skin. My skin is pretty sensitive as to where I have signs of irritation within an hour. Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash is gentle enough for my skin yet effective enough to leave my skin clean, soft and glowing. It contains mint, lemon grass and chamomile and though it is gel based, it foams as you are cleansing.
Also, I use makeup remover faithfully but the product claimed to remove it. So to test this theory, I skipped makeup remover and used just the cleanser and it did indeed remove the makeup. So for those who like cleanser that lets you skip makeup remover, this may be for you! The product is 6oz and lasts a decent amount of time. The only thing I did not like is the tube. I prefer cleansers come with a pump, as each pump typically gives you exactly the amount of product needed. I always feel that with tubes, I end up using more than needed thus going thru the product faster. That is a minor complaint being that the cleanser is so good and affordable. Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash can be found in some supermarkets, Walmart and online.
