METSV says: Well, if my next foray into Astara is as positive as the review for this cleanser, I’d say I’ll be sittin’ pretty! I’ve been hearing the buzz about this line forever but hadn’t gotten around to trying it – which now I am kicking myself for not getting with the program sooner. This gele is super concentrated – I’m telling you, you need the teeniest amount to completely clean your skin. The first time I used it, I poured about a quarter’s worth into my palm and even THAT was more than I needed. I’d say about a dime’s worth or thereabouts will completely cleanse your face – and wonderfully so! I had no stripping, dryness, irritation, redness, residual make-up…nothing – just clean, hydrated, and glowing skin. I think the aloe really helps condition and keep my face soft – but it could be any number of the othe awesome ingredients that are working their magic. I can not believe how soft but clean my skin feels. Excellent at removing even the toughest eye make up too – and there’s even another added bonus in that it can act as a shave gel – this is great especially if I’m in a hurry in the morning, and I actually thought I came up with the idea when I had poured too much gele in my hand one morning – I took the excess and used it for under my arms and I was all “hey, this makes a great shave gel”….then I go and read that Astara already knew that! Ha! Great cleanser and I will definitely be back to check out more of this great botanical line.
