Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser Review

Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser

We are slowly creeping into Winter and much like I can guarantee that the nights here in Glasgow will be dark, long and most likely wet, I can pretty much rely on my skin to act up. The combination of artificial heat, biting winds and rain results in red, often angry and drier than usual skin - I'm sure I'm not alone here? Like most, I switch up my skin care come the colder season, reaching for more intense and of course gentler formulations which leads me to the Origins Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief range; a collection of products designed to calm and reduce redness - perfect for stressed out complexions. If like myself you also happen to enjoy Micellar water based cleansers, you will most certainly want to check out the newly launched, Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser.

As most will be familiar with Micellar cleansers, I'll only quickly touch  base on how to use Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser. The beauty of Micellar Waters is that they do not require rinsing, simply use the cleanser to dampen a cotton pad or two and swipe over the face. Easy, peasy, cleansing, that requires next to no work and does remove the bulk of make up (I'd follow up with a traditional cleanse before bed); it is not only safe but gentle enough to use on the eye and mouth areas. I will be entirely honest in saying that Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser does not remove lip stains nor waterproof mascara, then again very few Micellar type cleansers do.

So what sets Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser aside from the others? Well for starters it is soap and alcohol-free, meaning even the most irritated of complexions can enjoy it. As a matter of a fact, it is one of the few cleansers I can reach for when my Ezcema is in full force - no stinging, no burning, if anything it somewhat cools and calms the skin. This could be down to the fact that the formula is fortified with Dr. Weil’s skin-soothing Mega-Mushroom blend, which is also enriched with Berry Ferment - a naturally rich in anti-oxidants addition to shield against environmental damage. Rather clever for a cleanser if you ask me, it also does a stellar job of calming reddened skin which you may just find yourself battling as Winter rages on.

  1. ooo sounds good! I can't find the ingredients for this guy, but if it has the mushroom extract Kojji acid, that is an awesome skin brightener, evens out any hyper-pigmentation from spot scars 'n stuff like that :)
