By now, you know that Jordan Samuel skin is one of my favorite brands. I always have something of his in my routine and have tried almost everything he’s created. That’s because he nails both textures and formulas and always has our skin barrier in mind.
The matinee cream cleanser is a testament to this. The cream texture is just lush. It provides such good slip that it feels like you could massage your face forever with it. When I rinse it off, my skin is clean, supple and extra soft.
This gentle cleanser is formulated with moisturizing oils, hydrators, soothing ingredients and antioxidant plant extracts (sesame oil, glycerin, rosehip oil, panthenol, allantoin, cucumber, green tea, chamomile). And then, there’s always an added twist with JSS. Here it’s the addition of silt which helps to absorb excess oil on the skin.
The only negative thing I have to say about this product is that I don’t enjoy its natural scent. It is unfragranced which is great for sensitive skins but it smells like something muddy. I got used to it in the end though since it’s not too strong.
There are three things I expect with Jordan – gentle skin supporting formulas, gorgeous textures, an added twist – and the matinee cream cleanser didn’t disappoint.
It retails for 32$/4 fl oz.
