Here it comes! My review on the Lancome Galatée Confort cleanser & toner is ready for all you beauty lovers! I purchased these products probably a little over 2 months ago and I think it has been a sufficient amount of time to really understand how I feel about these products and how they work on my skin.
LANCOME Galatée Confort – Comforting Milky Cream Cleanser for Dry Skin
This cleanser is a dual acting cleanser, as it claims to cleanse & hydrate the skin while removing makeup at the same time. It’s a milky/lotion consistency, meaning that it is extremely gentle on the skin, while being aggressive enough at the same time to scoop out impurities. Also, it smells like babies – in a good way!
When I first purchased this product I was using it both am and pm, daily. It was doing all that it claimed and I was really loving it! As one who struggles with dry skin, this product really conditioned my skin back to a healthy state and I actually felt for once that my skin wasn’t dry! As I continued to use this cleanser I found my skin getting more & more hydrated, but almost to the point where it was over-hydrated. I found my skin was beginning to produce an excessive amount of oil, something that is pretty unheard of for me. Who would have thought I could actually find a product that worked so well that it would make my skin change to the opposite end of the spectrum?
As much as I enjoyed having skin free from dryness, the oil was not necessarily something I wanted either. I decided to just use the cleanser at night when I needed to remove makeup and I replaced my morning routine with a more purifying cleanser. This combination was just what I needed, and it's what I continue to use right now! So, the verdict? It’s a great cleanser for the removal of makeup, but should only be used for short periods of time.
LANCOME Galatée Confort – Comforting Rehydrating Toner for Dry Skin
This toner is very similar to the comforting milky cleanser, but even more hydrating, if that’s even possible! It’s the perfect toner for extremely dry skin, and it soothes at the same time. I found it really helped to reduce redness and calm down any irritations I may have had. I just found it wasn’t for me. I was interested in finding a toner that I could use every day, both morning and night. This toner instantly hydrates the skin, so it can be a bit too much for prolonged use.
I like to use it for days where I really need a little bit of comfort, but for the most part I reach for other things! I did however purchase one for my freelance kit. It’s really important for me to work on clients with hydrated and fresh skin. This toner is perfect for my clients since I know it’s going to instantly hydrate their skin and make it moisturized for better makeup application! Since it’s a one-time use for them it gives great results and I love how foundation has been working with it.
Well, there you have it! Overall, it’s a great product line for those with extremely dehydrated and alipidic skin, but overuse isn’t necessarily a good thing. I would advise those to use it at times when really needed and then switch back to something less intense until it is needed again!
