Loreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner Review and Why I’m Not Fond of It

Hello!

I hope things are sunny in your lives right now!  When I heard of the Loreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner from a comment on another one of my videos on youtube, I was absolutely intrigued and amused that Loreal had jumped on the cleansing conditioner bandwagon.

However, although this product does have some positives (like it did cleanse my hair nicely), I have two main reasons why I do not like it, and would not recommend it to most people (if not all people).

Watch my video below to find out more! 🙂

Have a sunny day!

What is Co-Washing/ Conditioner Washing? An Alternative to Wen and a Way to Healthier Hair!

Hi everyone!

So, here is a hopefully more detailed description of what co-washing is, and how to co-wash your hair that Romi Madia requested!

I decided to try doing a vlog on it, hoping that it will be easier to understand what co-washing is, if I can be seen while explaining it, instead of me just trying to explain through written words.

Let me know if you like the idea of me doing more vlogs, if you’d prefer just more blog posts, or if you like the idea of both!

I hope you enjoy!

Here’s the info that I put into the description box 🙂

Co-washing, aka Conditioner Washing, is cleansing your hair with conditioner, instead of shampoo.  Although it sounds like it wouldn’t work, it really does!  Co-washing does not strip your hair like shampoo does.  So, your hair is healthier, shiny, smooth, and soft!

The products that I showed in this video are:

*Suave Rosemary and Mint Invigorating Clean Conditioner

*Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Conditioner

I only use Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Conditioner as my co-washing conditioner anymore.  For the once every couple of weeks clarifying, I use the Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo.

The other conditioners I have used for co-washing that work include V05 Repair and Protect Strengthening Conditioner, V05 Tea Therapy Blackberry Sage Conditioner, and Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner.

NUDE Skincare Cleansing Facial Oil

Sunny Mother Nature likes using NUDE Skincare’s Cleansing Facial Oil.

Cleansing Facial Oil

For the past 6 months I have been trying to get away from using foaming facial cleansers, especially ones made for oily skin.  I have thought for years that I have an oily skin type.  Yet, what do I find out when I switched to non-foaming cleansers-this is not the case!  I actually have combination to normal skin.  Imagine that!  (By using cleansers for oily skin, my skin would get really dry because the cleansers were trying to get rid of the excess oil.  Yet, this then made my face even more oily because my face was trying to make up for the oil lost to the cleanser.  When I stopped stripping my face of the oil, that’s when my face started to stop producing as much oil as it used to and my face then went to combination/normal skin)

However, for me, switching to just non-foaming cleansers wasn’t enough.  I wanted to start using a natural non-foaming cleanser (or at least one with very little foaming).

I was looking on Sephora (www.sephora.com) to see if they had any under their Natural Seal that appealed to me.  NUDE Skincare’s Cleansing Facial Oil was the one that popped out at me. 

It states on the back of the bottle that “This remarkable cleanser effectively removes even the most stubborn make-up.  The beautiful non-irritating natural oil protects and leaves skin smooth, supple and perfectly soft.  Warm between hands and massage onto dry face.  Apply warm water to form a light milk and rinse clean.  For normal to dry skin.”  (Although, on the box it says “For all skin types.”)  It is $36 for 3.4 oz from either www.sephora.com, or www.nudeskincare.com.

Also, this product does not have parabens, sulphates, PEGs, TEA, DEA, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, mineral oil, or silicones.  So, NUDE Skincare is being nice to you and Mother Nature.  These ingredients are not being absorbed by your skin and they are not going down the pipes into our water supplies, or into our environment.

It’s ingredients are glycine soja (soybean) oil, polyglyceryl-4-oleate (vegetable oil), squalene (olive oil), tocopherol acetate (plant sources), natural fragrance (parfum), benzyl benzoate (essential oil), linalool (essential oil), eugenol (essential oil).

I did not notice until now that it does have “fragrance” as an ingredient.  So, here’s to hoping it does have only nice ingredients as part of “fragrance”.

On the NUDE Skincare site (www.nudeskincare.com), it even states “Now with an even smaller carbon footprint, this beautiful Cleansing Facial Oil is one of the most responsibly packaged beauty products on the market – with an entirely recyclable plastic bottle using 100% Post Consumer Regrind (PCR).” 

So even it’s packaging is nicer to Mother Nature!

NUDE Skincare’s line is mostly made up of anti-aging products.  If you are interested, look at one of the websites for more information on those.  However, I like that this cleanser can be used by people who do not want anti-aging facial products  (it is not advertised as one of their anti-aging products).

I’ve been using this for a couple of months now and I do really like it.   However, at first I did add some water to my face and continue massaging it in a little more after first massaging it onto dry skin, but this ended up drying out my face.  So, I do not recommend doing that. 

What I have found to work for me is to massage this on dry skin and then add water to my hands and just rinse it off.  This way, my skin does stay at a nice moisture level.  This cleanser did get rid of all my make-up too without being really harsh on my face. 

Will I be buying this again?  Definitely. (although there is another cleansing oil that has grabbed my attention that I want to try too…)

So, if you want to be nicer to your skin and to Mother Nature, try NUDE Skincare’s Cleansing Facial Oil.  With Sephora, if you buy something and do not like it, you can return it for free.  However, there are also many other cleansing oils out there to try.  Just please, for your health and Mother Nature’s, always look to see if the cleanser is good for you and Mother Nature. Either way, Mother Nature will always appreciate any love you show towards her.

Please Note-I am not affiliated with NUDE Skincare, or with Sephora, and neither company gave me this product to try.  I bought this product myself from www.sephora.com.  It appears that Sephora will constantly have their “free returns” policy.  However, this could change sometime in the future after I have written this post.  Also, even though this product works for me, that does not mean that this product will definitely work for you.
