I’ve ad a massive skincare overhaul recently. I’m still a huge fan of the Dr Murad regime which I loved and still do, and I took a gamble switching things out to see if I can get things even better. I still haven’t managed to do much about the hormonal outbreaks.
I’ve long been double cleansing and I still am.
The first thing I’m using is the Clarins Water Purify One-Step Cleanser with Mint Essential Water (£19.50).
Excuse the photo, it didn’t turn out to too well!
I know this is a One Step cleanser meaning you should be able to clean your skin with this and it’d do the job without water. However I don’t trust that (in any brand) and so I use it as my first cleanse , essentially to remove my make up. And it does a fantastic job, this cleanser is for oily or combination skin and I have to admit that after cleansing with this my skin does look perfectly clean! I do think though if you are wearing make up it takes a lot of product and so for this reason I keep it as my first cleanse to remove most of my make up before going onto my second cleanse. Special mention must go to the lovely fresh scent and refreshing feel on the skin!
So after Using the Water Purify One-Step Cleanser I go on to do a wash with the Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed £18.
This cleanser is for Normal to Combination skins and it works like an absolute charm. It’s an odd hybrid of products, comes out like a cream and foams to a mousse like consistency but feels as light as air on your skin. You only need the smallest amount. A pea sized blob is more than enough for my face. It just leaves my skin feeling so clean and so soft and not at all dry. I’ve been using this for about a month now and so far no problems and certainly not a hint of dryness. It just feels so kind your skin.
Both products come highly recommended by me and with my horribly reactive skin you can take that as high praise indeed!
Both are available from Clarins counters nationwide or from www.clarins.co.uk.
