Who is it for?
For all skin types, particularly combination, normal, dull or dry. I have combination skin prone to congestion and dehydration, it suits me very well.
When i use it?
I use this cleanser as a morning cleanser or as a second cleanser in the evening. I usually pick this cleanser when my skin feels dull and dehydrated.
How i use it?
I take a pump and half of this cleanser and massage onto dry skin until melted. Then, i add a little water to emulsify into a white milk and remove with warm water or damp muslin cloth. I have tried removing it just by splashing my face with water and i never had any issues but i have noticed that when i use the warm flannel or washcloth, it feels more refreshing.
What are my thoughts about this cleanser?
I like the way it feels on the skin, it cleanses without stripping the skin or making it oily. It leaves the skin nourished, plumped and calmed. It works best if used on dry skin and removed with a flannel. I like the smell of this cleanser, it is not very strong or overpowering. It is pricey at CAD $50 for 100ml, but worth the price. It is packed with pumpkin enzymes which helps in clearing up the impurities. My skin feels baby soft and brighter whenever i use this cleanser. Totally recommend this!
