ladies,

After viewing all the wonderful reviews about decleor products on this board, I decided to switch all my essential stuff to this line, eg, cleaner, makeup remover, day and night moisturizer, and of course the wonderful essential balm I can't wait to try. Laughing

But I need some opinion from the decleor users here.

Here is my profile: I ususally have dry skin but my T-zone is turing to oily in the summer recently. And I wear makeup everyday so I need a decent makeup remover that can deal with water proof mascara. My skin is usually good enough for years but lately I got a lot of breakout here and there. Sad

For cleanser here is what I need: a mild cleanser in the morning; a makeup remover in the night, followed with cleanser good enough to remove trace of makeup or oil left by the makeup remover.

Now, is the foaming cleanser mild enough for my dry cheek in the morning but can do a good job to remove trace of makeup? If so I will just buy one cleanser. Wink If not, does the cleansing milk or cleasing cream leave a greasy feeling on your face?

Secondly, which one is better at removing mascara and foundation? the cleansing oil or the makeup remover?

Is any of their toner worth trying for my skin type?

Now comes to the moisturizers. I will use a seperate sun screen so I will not worried about anything with SPF. But I do need a day time and night time moisturizer. I guess the essential balm can't be used every night so unfortunatly it can't be my night time moisturizer? Which one do you think is best for dry/combinition skin? My sin is very dry in the winter but now it is combination and giving me a lot of breakout. I hope the essential balm can help with the breakout and won't dry out my skin. Am I asking too much?

Oh, I love decleor. I think my favorite thing is their lip balm, with the ylang ylang balm coming in a close second.

I would try the foaming cleanser, the night repair cream and the hydra matte moisturizer for the day.

Thanks Sadie for your comment. I am wondering whether the hydra matte will be too dry for me since it is for oily/combination skin.

I recently posted a review regarding the Decleor Foaming Cleanser and I have to say I didn’t like it nearly as much as I love their Decleor Cleansing Gel. Both products actually remove makeup, including waterproof mascara, but I just like the Gel better. The foaming cleanser seemed to leave a film on my face after I rinsed it off and it most definitely did *not* foam like the product’s name would indicate – it doesn’t even froth!! The Cleansing Gel is gentle enough for all skin types and does not leave the skin feeling dry and tight, as some products can do.

I also adored the Decleor Cleansing Oil, again it is very gentle and removes even the most stubbornly waterproof makeup, although I’d say that the Cleansing Oil is more suited to those with dryer skin types.

As for the Essential Balm, you’re supposed to use it for two weeks on, then two weeks off. I don’t use a moisturizer on a regular basis (my skin makes enough oil on its own!), but I *do* use the Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang oil in the mornings, followed by the Hydra-matte Regulating Fluid. I don’t find the latter to be overly drying, but I’m probably not the best barometer by which to measure these things....

I notice that you live in New England. If there is a Sephora store near you, I suggest you pay them a visit and ask for samples of all the Decleor products that you are interested in. They are very generous with providing free samples and would probably also be able to recommend the appropriate product/s for you to use for an A.M. moisturizer and what to use at night on the “off” weeks when you are not using the Essential Balm in the evenings.

HTH,
Carrie

P.S. For the record, here’s the list of all Decleor products that I have tried thus far:

• Decleor Cleansing Gel
• Decleor Regulating Cleansing Gel
• Decleor Mattifying Lotion
• Decleor Tonifying Lotion
• Decleor Cleansing Oil
• Decleor Foaming Cleanser
• Decleor Aromessence Lip Balm
• Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang Oil
• Decleor Ylang Ylang Balm
• Decleor Essential Balm
• Decleor Lift-Total Eye & Lip Contour Cream
• Decleor Vitoroma Wrinkle Prevention Eye Contour Cream
• Decleor T-zone Intensive Anti-shine Care

Thanks Carrie for such detailed information. It is an impresive list you tried. Do you like their toner at all? What about the eye cream?

I actually tried a sample of the foaming cleanser a while ago and I noticed its lack of foam as you mentioned. But the smell is vidine and that is the only thing I remembered. I should try the cleassing gel as you suggested to compare the two.

I will choose the cleasing oil since you said it is more suited for dry skin.

Again, thanks a lot

I find the the hydra matte normalizes your skin more than dries up your oily spots. I have combo skin as well and my drier areas do not get overly dry with this lotion.

The Decleor toners were okay, but no where near as impressive as my homemade ACV toner. These days I don’t need to ever buy another over-priced toner because my ACV toner puts all of them to shame!

I tried the Decleor eye creams but can’t really comment on their effectiveness because I don’t actually have any wrinkle, bags or circles around my eye area – actually, I don’t have any lines on my face yet at all, which is about the only positive thing I can claim about having hyper-oily skin! Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m not really qualified to make recommendations for eye creams.

Thanks for the clarification. It sounds like just what I am looking for. Laughing

OMG, carekate, I have to try the ACV toner tonight, since I only have about a cup of ACV left.

And I have to say I envy you so much...no problem at all around the eye area. I could only have it in my dream. Sad
