BEAUTY: The Cleanser Challenge with Pai Skincare

Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser – Pai*
(this is the 50ml size, also available in 100ml & 200ml

As per usual I was wasting my day away on Twitter when I spotted a tweet from Pai Skincare looking for bloggers to take part in their Cleanser Challenge. I had never tried anything from Pai before but after seeing them mentioned in the blogosphere a fair bit (as well as being loved by Natalie Portman!) I jumped at the chance to give their products a go.

A few days later this cute little cleanser appeared at my house, alongside some information about the cleanser challenge itself. Basically, Pai believe that their best-selling cleanser – the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser – will soothe my skin and remove any impurities without irritation or stripping. To take part, I’m going to be using only this cleanser for at least a week (I’m aiming for two minimum!) and let it do its magic.

On first impressions, this cleanser is lovely and creamy with a very delicate scent. It’s not overly foamy which is a big plus for me as I find foam cleansers very drying for my skin. After removing it with the muslin cloth it came with my skin is left feeling very soft & hydrated in comparison to my usual cleanser and there’s also a slight hint of the fragrance left. I’ve only used this for two nights now but I am really enjoying it, I’ve not had a chance to use it as an eye make up remover yet (yay for 2 in 1 products!) but I’ll certainly be testing its capacity at some point over the next week. I’m planning on doing an update after a week of using it, then another after two weeks – so keep an eye out for them to see how I get on with it!

From April 16th onwards Pai will be discussing the cleanser challenge over on Twitter using the hashtag #PaiChallenge so I’m really looking forward to seeing how everyone else gets on!
