Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner

As I get older (holy crap I am creeping up on 40…when did that happen?!) my skin seems to be demanding more and more attention. My face is dryer than it has ever been, is blotchy and lost some radiance. I have been putting a lot more effort into combating this with products-but not all products are created equal.

In my quest to buy Canadian when possible I have been turning to Deciem for my skin care – and so far the brand rarely disappoints! I know in the past year the company has had issues with their founder/former CEO but that has not impacted the quality of their products.


My recent find and favorite product is their High Efficiency Face Cleaner this has been saving my skin now that the cold and winter winds have arrived in Toronto.

According to Deciem

  • A highly-efficient, crystal-clear micro-emulsion brings together oils, esters and water-compatible cleaners into one advanced formula that works like an oil cleaner but acts like a water-based one and rinses off effectively
  • In a single step, oils of Mediterranean Crambe and East Asian Kanuga work with plant-derived esters to delete every trace of impurity, face- and eye-makeup
  • As you rinse off, sustainably-sourced Amazonian oils together with purified tomato carotenoids leave behind an innocuous layer of comfortable, non-comedogenic hydration
  • Unlike traditional oil cleaners, this advanced micro-emulsion does not require using a towel or mitt to clean the face as it rinses off efficiently with water in a single step.


According to me

As a general rule/ I had avoided oil cleansers because despite having super dry skin, I found them to be less of a cleanser and way too oily. Despite my weary history I was willing to give Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleanser a shot and it has pretty much changed my life.

First off this is a fantastic cleanser. It really does remove all traces of makeup and residue that builds up during the day. One wash and my face is totally clean!


You can use it as a makeup remover as well, and it does work well, but I have been sticking to my typical eye makeup remover because I do prefer gel makeup removers to oils.

What’s most amazing about this product is that it is hydrating to the skin without feeling greasy or oily. My skin honestly feels like it has just gotten a facial with each and every use.


It has only been a few weeks but I have already started to notice changes in my skin. My face has been softer, more radiant, more hydrated and more fresh and even in color. If your skin is in need of a deep clean and boost of moisture you should definitely treat your fact to the Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleanser.
