Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser

I've mentioned before that there is this little patch of eczema that has crept onto my face. It's not large, about the size of a 10p coin, under my lip in the corner of my mouth. This is highly unusual for me. I am assuming the cold weather has triggered it as I haven't had any weird and wonderful reactions to products in recent weeks. I decided to switch back to Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. I've given it a little mention before here and there, but not a full review. I just wanted to share with you my love for this brand and their products (and NO I haven't been paid to say that).

When someone with sensitive skin asks for a recommendation, Pai is always top of my list. The reason the brand stands out for me is simply that I know it has been formulated for sensitive and allergy prone skin. They are 100% up front about their ingredients and that is why I like them. When you have allergies sometimes we have to put our faith in a product. If a company can offer a level of reassurance that they have done their homework, it goes a long way. What is also great about Pai is it is one of the cleanest natural brands on the market. Products are free from detergents, synthetics, alcohol denat., parabens, phenoxyethanol and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate. They are also certified Vegan, Cruelty Free and Organic.

Pai's cleanser is a cream, has a nice texture/thickness and great scent (it's the May Chang that I pick up on). With a muslin cloth it removes my foundation and never leaves my skin feeling tight or dry. I never feel it irritates or worsen my eczema. The cleanser does come with a muslin cloth but I use my own ones. Muslin cloths are better with age and I have a stash of old cloths that are well loved, it's purely a personal preference. 

I'm switching out my cleanser most months, mainly because of my blog but I am also very fickle and it depends on my budget. Pai is at the top end of my spending bracket so I do shop around. 

Have you tried Pai skincare?

  1. I love Pai! I have used a sample of this and liked it. Too many cleansers on the go atm to justify another one unfortunately ;)

    1. Seems to be a common complaint with bloggers having too many cleansers lol. I only buy one at a time, so don't buy a new one until the one I am using runs out :)

  2. This is on my list to try, I have so many cleansers to get through first though. x

    1. I've tried C&P, it's been a while since I've used it but I'd say C&P was a fraction thicker. If you want a C&P dupe take a look at the brand Tropic :)

  4. I love this cleanser too, I alternate between this and the hydrocalm cleansing milk by REN which is my current favourite. I think this is an ideal choice for eczema sufferers because it is so gentle. They have an offer on at the moment if you spend over £20 get a free eye cream too, it is a pricey line but if you get a good offer it softens the blow a little! X

    1. I've experimented with samples of REN cleanser but can use them on a long term basis as they contain some of my food allergens, it really sucks as I like the brand. Thanks for the heads up about the deal :)

    2. Aww it's a shame about REN, I am obsessed! Enter code GTG if your order from pai and it will add the eye cream! x

  5. I love the idea of Pai but sadly I can't use their products- fragrance is one of my allergens- even essential oils

    1. I can often have problems with fragrance/essential oils. My other favourite cleanser is from Balm Balm an oil which doesn't have any fragrances
