Skincare Review: Paul and Joe Beaute Cleansing Gel, Cooling Lotion, and Herbal Lotion

I didn’t know Paul and Joe Beaute have skincare products until they sent me these. As usual, the packaging is on point and as expected, the products are gentle and nourishing.

The Cleansing Gel promises to remove makeup and cleanse the skin using olive tree oil, parsley extract, and sage oil. This has a light gel texture that cleanses my skin thoroughly. It removes all the excess oil on my skin without stripping it. I like using this in the morning instead of at night to remove makeup as it takes a bit of time when I use this as a first cleanser. What I also like about this is it leaves a refreshed feeling on the skin after rinsing.

They sent two lotions, which if you base it on j-beauty, are toners. The Cooling Lotion is an astringent and it contains olive oil, olive leaf extract, ectoin, peppermint extract, and chamomile extract. This is a gentle astringent. It doesn’t sting, just providing a relaxing and cool feeling to the skin as it helps remove the dirt that I wasn’t able to remove while cleansing. The Herbal Lotion, on the other hand, aims to hydrate, soften, and firm the skin using olive oil, olive leaf extract, ectoin, organic fennel leaf extract, and lemon extract. This is more viscous than the Cooling Lotion and provides more hydration to the skin. I like using the Cooling Lotion before the Herbal Lotion as the combination helps keep my oiliness at bay while hydrating my skin. Using both left my skin feeling nourished and plump all day long.

I am pleasantly surprised by these products especially the Cooling Lotion and Herbal Lotion as they seem to suit my oily skin.
