Cleansing is the first step in the skincare routine with which the whole ritual of skincare begins. The effectiveness of the skincare products in the skincare routine depends on the first step – cleansing. By cleansing, I mean the skin which is clean, not stripped of natural oils, not dry, not irritated but comfortable. La Prairie has launched two new cleansing products this summer called Supreme Balm Cleanser and Crystal Micellar Water Eyes Face. Both the products have elevated the skincare ritual from ordinary to extraordinary.
A perfect complexion begins with perfectly clean skin that is purified, detoxified, and moisturized. It is my personal experience that when my skin is thoroughly cleansed, my skin looks and feels healthier. It has no to minimal congestion, it is radiant and healthy-looking.
Supreme Balm Cleanser
Supreme Balm Cleanser is a deep cleansing balm to start the indulgent cleansing ritual. It is not just to remove makeup but also to help shed the day’s stress and leave skin perfectly clean.
Basically, good thorough cleansing does not strip the skin of its hydration or natural defenses. And that is what this Supreme Balm Cleanser does. The Supreme Balm Cleanser undergoes a surprising and delightful transformation on the skin. It begins as a rich balm before transforming first into a sumptuous oil and then into a gentle, milky emulsion. It dissolves makeup as well as pollutants, dirt, and impurities for gentle yet thorough cleansing of the entire face. The result is soft supple skin with a velvety feel.
To use ‘Wth the spatula, collect a generous dollop of balm and dispense it into the palm of the hand. Using fingertips, apply on perfectly dry skin by massaging in a circular motion. Starting at the forehead, passing along the nose, over cheeks, and along the jawline. Continue to massage until the Supreme Balm Cleanser transforms into a silky oil. Splash face with lukewarm water to transform the oil into a milky emulsion, continuing the massage gesture. Rinse until the skin feels clean and free of residue. Gently wipe face using one of the delicate muslin cloths for a light exfoliation. That leaves skin perfectly clean and smooth. Follow with the rest of the skincare ritual.'
Crystal Micellar Water Eyes Face
Crystal Micellar Water Eyes Face is an essential, one-gesture cleansing ritual. It combines Liquid Crystal technology with the indulgence of pure, clear Swiss glacier water to leave skin perfectly pristine. With the busy routine of the day, there is sometimes not enough time to do the cleansing. My full cleansing ritual includes removing makeup, pollutants, and other impurities. And that is where this Crystal Micellar Water comes into the picture. Crystal Micellar Water Eyes Face is a gentle yet effective cleansing micellar water. It attracts makeup and other impurities and binds to them so they can then be swept away. All without drying out the skin. It works very well in combination with the Supreme Balm Cleanser.
My Thoughts on Crystal Micellar Water
Crystal Micellar Water Eyes Face removes all impurities and makeup without the use of water. The rich fusion of antioxidants protects the skin at the same time. The skin is clean, refreshed, hydrated, soothed, and healthy-looking. I personally use this cleanser as my third cleanse during normal days. It gives an extra dose of good antioxidants to my skin. And my skin is ready for the rest of the skincare ritual to attain the maximum benefit of the products followed by it. On the days when I am traveling or too tired, it is definitely a go-to to cleanse my face and that too as a second cleanse. It never irritates my eyes and also removes the mascara and every bit of makeup.
To use, ‘Use anytime for a thorough cleansing. Dispense onto a cotton pad and gently press over one eye. Wait for a few seconds to allow the formula to begin dissolving eye makeup. Then gently sweep the cotton pad from the inner to the outer corner. Repeat on another eye, using a fresh pad. Proceed to the rest of the face, sweeping product-infused cotton pads over forehead, nose, cheeks, jawline, and neck until the pads no longer show any signs of makeup or other impurities.'
Apart from these, there are new color launches from the brand that I am loving. For the Supreme Balm Cleanser and Crystal Micellar Water Face Eyes, I am really enjoying them for my skin. Truly the ‘Rolls Royce of Cleansers'. I would highly recommend you try these out in stores or get a sample. They are well worth the investment when it comes to their skincare benefits.
After cleansing with the Supreme Balm Cleanser and Crystal Micellar Water, I follow up with a serum. My go-to serum for brightness and clarity is the White Caviar Illuminating Pearl Infusion. For eyes, I love Skin Caviar Eye Lift Serum and Cream.
