Albolene: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis Albolene Cleanser will effectively remove my stage makeup after a performance and leave my skin soft and moisturized.


One 6oz. jar of Albolene Unscented Cleanser and a ton of makeup on my face following a dance performance.  About Albolene:


Albolene® Moisturizing Cleanser has been well-known for decades as an effective and gentle makeup remover, especially for hard-to-remove “waterproof” and “smudge-proof” cosmetics. Used regularly by Broadway stars and others who regularly apply heavy makeup that needs gentle removal, this dermatologist-recommended, moisturizing cleanser liquefies on contact with skin to thoroughly dissolve makeup, dirt and environmental grime.

methods While I am far from a Broadway Star, I have been dancing for most of my life.  Each year, we have a performance which requires heavy stage makeup.  I use waterproof and smudge-free mascara which can be difficult to remove.  And this year, my daughter performed as well in all of her “sparkles.”  After the performance I used a small quantity of Albolene Unscented Cleanser on both Lily and I in order to remove the heavy makeup.


A little Albolene cleanser went a LONG way!  I needed a VERY small amount for my face in order to quicky, easily and most importantly COMPLETELY remove my eye makeup and mascara.  My old cleanser would leave “raccoon-like” circles under my eyes, but Albolene left my face totally free of any trace of makeup.  It worked just as well on Lily’s face and did not have a heavy scent or burn her eyes.


While Albolene is a wonderful cleanser, it has also recently been clinically-proven for the treatment of mild to moderate eczema, according to a new study in the March 2009 issue of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Albolene is just as effective as a leading prescription moisturizer, Mimyx® in the reduction of dryness, scaling, itching, redness and peeling related to mild to moderate eczema. And, Albolene costs a fraction of the price and has widespread availability in the drug store for a suggested retail price of $9.95 for a 12–ounce jar.

    It is supposed to be an excellent makeup remover.

  6. kathy pease says:

    If suffering from mild/moderate eczema, liberally apply Albolene twice daily over the dry skin patches to help moisturize the skin. Moisturization is necessary for treating eczema, which affects millions. For moderate eczema, apply a topical corticosteroid along with the Albolene. Discuss with your physician.

    There is clinical proof that Albolene really helps treat mild to moderate eczema. This is quite impressive. Thanks.

    Independent clinical studies demonstrate that Albolene’s “Makeup Removal Index” and “Moisturizing Index” are significantly higher than the leading brands in its category.
