A while ago, I was treated to a Guinot facial at Yemaya Spa & Hair in Sea Point for Cosmetix and Cindy Nell’s annual pamper party. One of the goodies I got given to try at home from my facial was a Guinot cleanser. This cleanser is part of their Hydra range which is probably not the most suited product for my skin needs but it certainly does hydration and it does hydration well.
Water is an indispensable source of life for the cells and well-being of the skin. A good moisture balance ensures a healthy complexion. The Hydra Tendre is described as being a “soft wash off cleansing cream“, and when applied to the skin you can literally feel it absorb into your skin as though your skin is absolutely parched, and as with most cleansers you rinse it off as normal with water and et voila – you have a clean smooth and hydrated face! The consistency of the cleansing cream is smooth with a light pink colour to it and it seems heavily fragranced and has a very perfume-y smell which is not unpleasant but I normally prefer less fragrance in my skincare products. When your skin is cleansed your skin feels soft and gentle and your face is left feeling refreshed.
I have been using the Guinot cleanser for the past 3 weeks and now my skin is actually over-hydrated which is not necessarily a problem but it is not the ideal solution for me as I do not suffer from dry or dehydrated skin so I will not be purchasing this cleanser again unless my skin needs change.
Unfortunately I have not been able to find the retail prices of what the cleanser goes for but it is available at Yemaya Spa and various other salons which offer the luxourious Guinot treatments for purchase.
