Hi everyone !!!!
I’m back again with more cleanser reviews. Today as the title suggests I’ll be discussing my thoughts on de Mamiel Skin . At this stage I’ve only indulged in the cleansers. Once I’ve used the entire range I will then do a seperate post on the Brand as a whole and go into more detailed information.
Ingredients and Recommended use were taken directly from https://www.demamiel.com
Product – Pure Calm Cleansing Dew
Price – $76 aud for 100ml
Recommended Use – Each morning and evening, place 1-2 pumps into your palm and warm. Breathe in the aroma; inhale for a count of 3, pause and exhale for a count of 5. Massage into your face and neck using damp fingers to stimulate circulation and break down dirt, makeup and pollution particles, then add a little warm water to reveal the delicate milk. Rinse and pat dry, for gentle exfoliation use the de Mamiel cleansing cloth.
How I Use – For me I enjoy this most as a morning cleanse. Whilst it can remove makeup I do prefer it as a skin cleanser not makeup remover . I use around 5 pumps and really give my face a lovely slow massage whilst taking long deep breaths. I do remove with a warm washcloth.
Smell – This just smells like relaxation and hope in a bottle. Which I realise isn’t the most helpful of descriptions however not one ingredient stands out its just an incredibly well thought out and carefully blended melange of deliciousness
Texture – It has a medium viscosity which spreads easily whilst being weighty enough to enjoy a long massage.
Thoughts – I first tried this after seeing a Caroline Hirons YouTube video. It become mine almost 2 years ago and I loved it, however thats also the time I started an Instagram account so I began trying a million cleansers and never came back to this. Finally I repurchased and was swiftly reminded of how much joy this brings me not only on an olfactory note but the entire ritual of breathing deeply and massaging my skin with it. This by far is the most soothing and beautiful cleansers I’ve ever had in my collection and I can’t imagine being without it again.
Repurchase – Yes !!!!!

Product – Restorative Cleansing Balm
Price – $56 aud for 50ml $97 aud for 100ml (pictured above.)
Recommended Use – Massage a small amount between your palms and onto your face and neck in upward circular motions following Annee’s simple, at-home technique in the care leaflet. Soak a cloth in warm water and hold it against your face for a minute to steam and activate the oils. Breathe deeply, then buff away.
How I Use – As directed for the generally and mainly I enjoy using in the mornings I will use as a second cleanse in the evening if I’ve had a particularly stressful day. Another way I’ve been enjoying of late is to apply a layer and massage in then leave on in the shower, the steam mixed with the scent is incredible and has the added benefit of protecting my skin in the shower I then wipe away the remnants with a washcloth on exiting the shower.
Smell – Yet another exercise in meticulous blending of aromas both delicate and all encompassing.
Texture – A thick balm that melts beautifully and easily into skin.
Thoughts – This was recommended by a dear and trusted friend on Instagram . This is such an enjoyable cleanser to use, It feels nourishing and soothing on the skin and gives the most incredible slip to the skin which is perfect for massage with either your hands, gua sha tools or any other massage devices you choose. Yet again the scent is a lesson in understated elegance and is both uplifting and comforting all at once.
Repurchase – Yes

So there you have it, my thoughts I do naturally gravitate towards cleansers from the world of green beauty due to my preference for oil cleansers and a sensory as well as efficacious cleansing experience. There are many fantastic traditional skin cleansers as well however its called a preference for a reason . I’m looking forward to experiencing more from this beautiful brand and will share as I do so.
Thank you so much for reading , I do hope you both enjoyed and subscribed. Please leave any questions you may have in the comments and I’ll reply as soon as I can.
