No7 Melting Gel Cleanser

I’ve never gone to bed without removing my makeup. However I’ll admit I’m pretty lazy when it comes to cleansing my face and giving my skin a deep clean. So I’m drawn to products that can cleanse, tone and add moisture in one quick sweep. You know the type, the multi-taskers of the skincare world, the cleansing geniuses of makeup removal.

I’m always on the hunt to find new products that I can introduce into my regime. Products that will make it quicker and easier without sacrificing the end result of fresh clean skin and gel cleansers seem to be bang on.
A favourite of mine is the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel which is a Holy Grail product when it comes to effortlessly removing my makeup. However I noticed that No7 do a gel that looks pretty darn similar and I guessed it was about time I used one of those £5 off vouchers they routinely hand out in Boots. Without the voucher this is still a bargain product at only £9 for a large tube but I got it at a ridiculous price of £4!

The product itself is of a thick gel consistency that’s doesn’t run and is very similar to the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel. No7 suggest massaging the product into damp skin however I prefer to massage it into dry skin so I can apply it evenly without water dripping down your elbows. The oil in the cleansing gel becomes more apparent once you’re smoothing it over the face and feels as though it’s loosening the makeup. When adding water the gel turns into a cleansing milk and dissolves the makeup before washing it away and patting your face dry.

The result is that your skin looks and feels softer, hydrated and freshly clean in less than 3 minutes. The product is pretty much a perfect match to the Clarins Gel which is priced at a generous £20. But if you looking for a beauty buy under £10 that does a similar job than the No7 Melting Gel Cleanser is the one to go for. A major steal at £4 with a Boots voucher and £9 without. 

The only negative I could find with this product is that it is perfumed and some sensitive skin types may not like this. However the smell isn't strong and the added perfume ingredient didn’t affect my skin which can go through sensitive patches.

  4. I've been wanting to try the Clarins version of this for a while but it's a bit out of my price range at the moment, this one sounds like a great bargain alternative! Thanks for the review :) xx

  5. £4 with the voucher is such a bargain! I had the Clarins melting cleanser put on me when I had a facial a while back and loved it but couldn't believe it was £20. This looks like a much more affordable option. If only it smelt as good as the Clarins one! x

  7. Have you tried this on eye makeup? It says avoid contact with eyes...but I'd like an all in one cleanser that can tackle heavy eye makeup as well...debating whether to get this or the Clarins one!
