If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, you’ll notice that the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner has been mentioned a couple of times or so in my posts; if you know me in person, I may have demanded that you buy it at some point. But I’ve never really got into detail as to what it is about this toner that makes me love it so much. I got sent Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Toner * to try out, so I thought this would be a good time to go in depth about both toners!
Finally, some products that Nick can review for all the lovely men in my life!
Wise Men’s Care is a Montreal indie brand that creates simple, natural men’s care products. Their ingredients are naturally sourced from varying parts of Canada, in recyclable and reusable packaging.
As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m all about local and natural brands, so I figured Wise Men’s Care is the perfect product line for Nick to try out! For those of you who don’t know Nick, he has very dark, thick hair that grows very fast. He is literally the perfect guinea pig *evil smirk*
IMO, double cleansing is probably one of the biggest reasons my skin started to clear up. Before I used to just run a basic cleanser (*cough* Cetaphil) on my face for a few seconds, rinse it off and rub my face with a towel. This routine obviously exacerbated my skin problems; I wore a cake-face amount of makeup to cover all the imperfections, and barely any of it would properly wash off. I basically just maintained a vicious cycle of skin problems because makeup would always be left on my face. It wasn’t until I discovered the magic of using facial oils as the first step of my skincare routine that I realized how important and beneficial a good cleansing routine is.
In short, Double Cleansing is – well – washing your face twice. But instead of using your regular cleanser two times, you want your first step to be an oil-based cleanser. This is beneficial as the first step of makeup removal because oil easily breaks down makeup and removes excess sebum your skin may have produced throughout the day.
Dermalogica released their newest product, the PreCleanse Balm. It is claimed to be a deep-cleansing balm-to-oil emulsifier that melts away impurities from the skin.
By using this with their Cleansing Mitt (included when purchasing the PreCleanse Balm), it’ll thoroughly cleanse the debris from the skin’s surface, and allow your cleanser to deliver more effective results.
