So here I go again, trying out something else new. This sample facial cleanser has just been sitting around in my stash so I finally decided to break it open and see what it's all about. Well, that was three days ago that I first started using it and I must say that it is very different from any other facial wash/cleanser I've ever been exposed to. And that's part of its charm. Let me bend your ear for a moment so I can tell you a little bit about the Eve Lom Cleanser.
I had never heard of Eve Lom nor her cleanser, but was intrigued by Vogue magazine's bold declaration of it being the "best cleanser in the world". It's touted as performing the duties of three products as it not only cleans, but exfoliates and moisturizes all in one application. And it comes with its own special setup and specific instructions to help fulfill such claims.
The sample came with a packet of the cleanser as well as a small muslin cloth to be used for the process. I normally wash my face with only my hands, but was fully willing to implement the Eve Lom approach to skin care.
The muslin cloth is about the size of my hand and is very light on the skin. Its purpose is not only to help clean, but also to exfoliate and encourage blood circulation.
The cleanser is not your run-of-the-mill, lather & rinse type of fare as it comes with unique instructions that support optimal efficacy of the product. In fact, it's not a bubbly, foaming cleanser at all, but rather a topical treatment that relies on a combination of hot and cold water applications to manipulate the pores as it cleans, tones and moisturizes.
Best cleanser in the world? Not too sure about that. But it is (so far) a very, VERY good one indeed.
Eve Lom Cleanser can be found at beauty.com and comes in various sizes, including 1.6fl oz., which retails for $50.
