Recently they introduced Plenaire to their pharmacy and I was lucky enough to learn about the brand and even try their Rose Jelly Makeup Remover.

Plenaire Rose Jelly Gentle Makeup Remover

I was lucky to be given the chance to try this product from the brand and I have to say it is really lovely. A gentle and fuss free gel to milk cleanser. The texture is almost like a really thick oil that melts makeup, dirt and debris away when it touches the skin and emulsifies to a rose coloured milk with just the tiniest amount of water. It was so gentle and soothing I was able to use to remove my eye makeup too with no irritation.

It has a really light sweet rose scent and leaves the face clean and fresh with no stripping or drying.

Key ingredients – Glycerin & Rosa Damascena Flower Water

RRP £30.00 100ml would definitely love to try more from this brand.

Thank you for reading.
