WEN

Anyone try using their Wen as a facial cleanser?

I heard Chaz mention he uses the CC on his face with his clarisonic and lets it stay on, sort of like a mask, for a few minutes, then rinses. I decided to give it a whirl. Honestly, my skin seems very moisturized but not oily at all. I am prone to hormonal acne break outs and my skin is also sensitive to oils etc. This hasn't caused any problems so far, over several days, although I would normally break out right away. So, the jury is still out on this for me but seems good so far. Anyone try this? Just curious about others experiences....

I haven't tried that but know of a few ladies that do use it as a cleanser and love it as well. I don't think I could as I have sensitive skin and I just don't like tingling sensations on my skin really. I had my hubby try the GP when he shaved his face and he did not like it because he is very sensitive to tingling from menthol and it really bothered his face. He was kind of mad at me for not warning him about that but I didn't think it would bother him so much since it is pretty low on the ingredient list. OOPS! {#emotions_dlg.blushing}

Glad it is working for you so far!

DUH....WENing! :)

I thought Chaz said he uses the Body Wash on his face, not the CC.

I use my leftover CC (that I put in the 6 oz bottle) as a makeup remover. I use two pumps of the CC, smooth it all over my face and tissue it off. It's awesome at removing makeup.

yes, I've used Lavender and Pom Body Cleansing Creme as a facial cleanser. Works great!

My hubby also uses it to shave and do an overall face clean on the mornings that he shaves. He uses SAM the most, but also Fig at times. He really likes it, and is breakout prone (normally uses Proactive, but dries his skin). Maybe the two cancel each other out and keep him balanced? I, personally, have not used it on my face. I am afraid to.

Yes, I've found myself using Wen head to toe, lately. :)

Wen CC has become my shaving cream, body cleanser as well as hair cleanser in the shower. I have used it on my face with no probs.

I rotate using the replenishing treatment mist, or oils, as an after shower 'body moisturizer'.

I do still like philosophy on my face as well, though. :)

Yes!! I accidently discovered in the shower (when I wiped my face with my hands) that it DOES clean your face well including oily skin and can get it clean without stripping at all! I have acne-prone skin and Wen treats my face better than facial cleansers....actually moisturizing (while cleansing that is, I do rinse it off) better than anything else too. No break-outs and I trust it not to create dryness or irritate. I would try it when you're in the shower.

I didn't know Chaz did that w/the Clarisonic. Thanks for mentioning!

Thanks for the feedback ladies! I am going to keep using it with my Clarisonic and see how it goes. So far, so good! Smile

That's what he said. You'll see the models using it on their faces when he's on with the body wash, too. I tried the body wash on my face, with my Clarisonic, and I broke out. It's not for everyone.

Yes, I heard him say he washes his face with CC while he was presenting the Ginger Pumpkin CC on Tuesday. Since then, I too have used the Pumpkin Ginger CC on my face several times these past two days with my Clarasonic. So far so good. I actually like it.

I have used my pom body cleanser as a mask on my face. It works pretty good. I like it.

Yep, that is right. He says he uses the CC for his face. He says you can use the body wash or the cc for the face and for shaving.

DUH....WENing! :)

I've been using it for shaving - works great!!! As a facial cleanser it's new for me, but so far I like it!

I sometimes use the body cleanser on my face. It has matrixyl 3000 peptides, which is very good for skin.
