You may have heard of the product before. Hell, you may even have it and never used it for what its really for (lol). Albolene is a “moisturizing cleanser that liquifies on contact with your skin. Gently and thoroughly disloves makeup dirt, and even mascara.” You all know I love to read the labels (you’d be surprised of how many people don’t) and use the product exactly as it is instructed.
Most women from what I’ve seen, use this product to help them sweat more in the waist area while working out. They apply Albolene to their stomach, sides and back. Then tightly cover the area with saran wrap. While working out the product creates a barrier on top of the sweat glands which causes the area to sweat more in the concentrated area. To be honest this is how/why I discovered discovered and purchased this product. I have not wrapped my belly with it yet to review it in that way, also, I didn’t want to without using it for its true purpose anyway. LOL am I weird?
In one of my most popular blog posts I shared with you all that I have severely dry skin. Psoriasis and Eczema to be exact. I have really bad dry patches all around my nose, chin, behind and inside my ears! Crazy right? lol The front of the product says, “The Makeup Comes off, the Moisture stays in.” So I had to give it a try. I wish I took a before and after. Even I if I did, I have to be honest and say I’d be afraid to post them. The dry patches on my face are just that bad. I use to wake up in the morning to large flakes on my face and it was simply embarrassing. Key word….WAS!
Using Albolene for a little over a week now, I am surprised and happy to say the dry patches on my face are almost 100% gone and healed! This has never happened before. I’ve found products to help maintain/ temporarily rid of my outbreaks (i.e Aquaphor and Me & The Girls Belza Beauty Bar) but I’ve never had anything get rid of and repair the skin underneath they dry patches. Outside of it being a makeup remover, this is an amazing product for those with dry skin. I would recommend men with extremely dry skin give it a shot as well. It’s also great for removing your makeup. No need to panic or rush to the store when you run out of makeup remover wipes.
If you are also interested in seeing how this works on your waistline, by all means give it a shot and let me know how it goes. Do you already use Albolene to help you sweat more in your waist line? Has it ever even dawned on you that its a facial cleanser? If so, have you tried it? If not, TRY IT! lol
Until Next time,
Albolene can be purchased online and at you local Walgreens for $10-$13 (depending on where you buy!)
