Albolene: Review and Giveaway

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

materials

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

albolene-2

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.

results

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.

summary

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.

    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.
