9 to 5 Facial Cleanser

   It sure isn't the ideal way to make a living, Dolly, but this cleansing lotion definitely helps at the end of the day or on-the-go... And yep, you read it right! This is a soap-less cleanser to get all the makeup and gunk off your face at the end of a long work day.
   9 to 5 is a silky, liquid lotion to help wash away all your troubles... Whether its after a grueling work day, in a hurry to get out the door, or to clean up while traveling. With its main advertized ingredient being orchid, before even trying this product you know it is going to smell like heaven... And you're right! It is a light and creamy floral scent, with a hint of almond oil and ylang ylang, that lasts a few minutes after using this unique cleanser.
   This product is lovely on most skin types! Dove orchid is a known ingredient that adds a little magic when calming and smoothing out one's skin complexion... Using about a quarter sized amount, you can either apply it directly to your face with your fingers, or with a cotton round. When the lotion is massaged nicely over the skin, you can use warm water or dry cotton rounds to wipe away this gentle product (aka, this is the ultimate lazy item because you don't have to actually wash it off). Then, glance into the mirror to find your face feeling clean, fresh, and moisturized.
   9 to 5 is also a wonderful makeup remover! That means its safe for around the eyes. Personally, I use makeup removing wipes to get off the bulk of anything on my face, and let this lovely little product get rid of the rest... Which, if you are like me and live in smudge-proof eyeliner cat eye looks, you know how tough removing eye makeup can be on your skin. This product has never irritated my eyes, and always leaves my skin feeling completely clean before bed.
   There isn't much else to say... 9 to 5 cleansing lotion is a very simply yet effective cleanser, that I always keep stocked and on hand. I've heard some people, like me, started seeing skin irritations settle down as early as the night after the first use, to a week later...
   I give this product a 4.5/5, no doubt. It's a wonderfully lazy item, with a beautiful fragrance, and add in its working power? Pretty much can't be beat.
