Clarins Make Up - Remover Review: Make Up Skin Care - Cleanser Skin Care - Scrubs

Review: Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser With Orange Extract

My current makeup remover is the Cleansing Milk With Gentian by Clarins. Love it to bits. I went to Clarins counter a few months ago with the intention to repurchase but Fennie suggested that I try Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser With Orange Extract on alternate.

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser With Orange Extract is 125ml in tube and it’s retailing for RM107. Slightly more than Cleansing Milk with Gentian.


Surprisingly the back of the tube is full with different language on how to use this.



Orange extract softens – refreshes and revives.
Moringa Seed extract – purifies and refines while preserving your skin’s natural moisture level. Gentle Silica Microbeads – tackle clogged pores.


In a nutsell, this is a makeup remover cum gentle scrub. If you already have a different facial scrub just like me, fret not. The exfoliating action of this is not as harsh as you think. This is more runnier and creamier than conventional facial scrub product. To show you how to use and what I meant by “runnier and creamier than conventional scrub products”, here is a simple step-by-step demo.

In this demo I’m using Make Up For Ever High Definition Foundation. I squeeze just a bit onto the back of my hand.


Then I spread the foundation out just like how you’d wear the foundation on your face.


First damp your face, squeeze some to your fingertip.
Note: I squeeze the cleanser next to the foundation for you to see clearly on the color and texture of the cleaner.


Massage onto face and work into a lather and proceed to exfoliate. Remember to avoid the eye area ya.


Rinse with warm water and voilà! Soft and clean face.


This really works well in removing my makeup and at the same time cleanse and exfoliate traces from my face. The cleanser do smell like an orange though. It’s stingy to the eyes so make sure you close you eyes tightly and avoid the eye area at all cost.

1) Makeup remover, cleanser and exfoliator at one go.
2) Pricey. Try alternating this with other makeup remover.
3) Smells like orange!
4) Refreshing and cleans throughly.

Definitely a yes. Indeed I purchase this after given a 75ml trial size by a friend to try 🙂
