Overview

This liquid-to-foam cleanser is a standard formula that a suitable for normal to oily or combination skin. Although it contains the drying, potentially irritating cleansing agent sodium lauryl sulfate, it's not the main cleansing agent, so is less likely to be cause for concern. Still, there are better cleansers that come in larger bottles (3.5 ounces is on the small side for a cleanser like this).

True to its name, this fragranced cleanser foams and removes makeup, but you'll need a separate makeup remover to remove waterproof formulas.

Pros:
  • Cleanses and removes makeup easily.
  • Won't leave a residue on skin.
  • Great if you prefer a lot of foam.
Cons:
  • Smaller-than-usual size for this type of cleanser.
  • Not as gentle as many other water-soluble cleansers.

Brand Overview

Palladio-At-A-Glance

Strengths: Impressive powder and liquid foundation options; Rice Paper; Herbal Lip Gloss; Eyeshadow Primer; Baked Blush; Herbal Tinted Lip Balm; company provides complete ingredient lists on their website.

Weaknesses: Poorly made eyeliners, including Liquid Eyeliner and Eye Ink Felt Tip Liquid Eye Liner; highly fragranced eyeshadow quad; potentially irritating lip stain; poorly formulated skin-care products.

Palladio started as a small, Florida-based brand, and has been slowly carving out its niche at well-known beauty supply stores in North America and abroad through a growing network of resellers. The brand has attracted consumer interest because it's affordable and offers high-quality products.

One of the other draws is their brand tagline: "herbal & vitamin enriched cosmetics." Surprisingly, many Palladio products lack the ingredients to back up their herbal claim, and several of the products that do contain plants and vitamins have packaging that won't keep them stable during use, something that's true for lots of makeups that boast of antioxidant content. Still, this brand does have several products with impressive amounts of antioxidants, including a liquid foundation, eyeshadow primer, and lip gloss in decent packaging that will help keep the ingredients stable.

While the enticing herbal/vitamin claim isn't justified by all their products, many Palladio makeup products are worth checking out, and the prices are great, but stay away from the skin-care products because they are problematic, for several reasons, as you will see in our reviews. The most impressive products are the foundations and the tinted Rice Paper. The only makeup missteps are the liquid eyeliners, whose performance pales in comparison to comparably priced drugstore options.

In the United States, United Kingdom, and Mexico, Palladio is widely available at Sally Beauty. Palladio products also are available abroad through reseller websites, which are listed in the FAQ section of Palladio’s U.S. website.
