When it comes to new and innovative products, I somehow always get sucked into trying them. It's not that I'm not totally satisfied with my current skincare system, but trying a new product for me is like opening up a new toy on Christmas morning; I just get excited. Maybe that's what makes me a beauty addict? Anywho. . . L'Oréal Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser ($7) is a foaming cleanser that comes with an added bonus: a scrublet which fits right in the bottle. The oil-free cleanser is a high-foaming gel, which L'Oréal claims unclogs pores as it removes oil, dirt, and makeup. The cleanser contains notes of naranji, orange flower, and mint, which feels really refreshing on the skin. (For the pros and cons, just read more.)
Pros: I really liked the cleanser at first; the mint felt really nice in the morning when you need that wake-up boost, and it did a pretty good job of removing all of my makeup — even better than my regular cleanser. The scrublet, a small silicone-feeling scrubber that gently cleanses the skin, was a great add-on and left my skin feeling smooth, clean, and looking radiant. I loved that the scrublet fit in the hole in the bottle, rather than having to leave it on the bathroom sink or misplacing it who knows where.
Cons: As much as I really wanted to love this cleanser, after a few uses I noticed my normally oily skin starting to feel dry and tight (I suspect the mint is the culprit). Verdict: While I wasn't too big on the cleanser, in the end, I'll probably still use it once in a while. But the scrublet is definitely here to stay, and I've found it works great with my regular cleanser and really helps clear away any makeup or residue.
