Cleansing is one of the most important aspect of skincare. There are various types of cleansers – Cleansing Foams, Cleansing Oils, Cleansing Soaps, Cleansing Towelettes, Micellar Waters etc. Ever since I started using cleansing oils – I have never stopped using them.
People also ‘d have hundreds of doubts like – what exactly makes a cleansing oil just as good or better for the skin than a regular bar soap? Can people with oily skin use the product? Why doesn’t the oil clog our pores? etc. Well, Let me answer that question for you all – When massaged into the skin, oils in the cleanser bind to surface impurities (pulls out dirt and impurities without clogging pores) and allow them to be comfortably rinsed away leaving the skin surface clean, soft and hydrated. Cleansing oil does not sink into your pores since it works to remove impurities and then gets washed away. In today’s post I am reviewing a cleansing set which is specially formulated for sensitive skin – Erno Laszlo Sensitive Double Cleanse Travel Set

Packaging – I am not very fond of this bottle packaging that comes without a stopper. Every time I take the product – I waste some product because of the wide lid. I wish It came in a pump bottle or with a stopper. Considering, the compact size- It’s easy to travel with and can easily be popped into your handbag. it smells like Guava leaves and I really love how clean and soft it is to touch my skin after using this.

How I use cleansing oil & Facial bar to deep cleanse my face
Gently massage a generous amount of oil in small circular motions on dry skin. Message over face and jawline to open pores and trap dirt and makeup on the face. Next, dampen cleansing bar under warm water. Gently massage the wet soap bar over your face using the rounded corners to stimulate circulation. You can also use your hands and fingertips to create a rich lather as well, remembering to include the delicate area of the neck. Rinse with warm water. Blot skin dry. Follow with toner, treatments and moisturizers to match your skin’s needs. Skin felt really fresh, soft and radiant. I love how clean my face is after using this cleansing oil. It doesn’t over dry skin or irritate it.
I tried 2 methods of using this set. I tried cleansing oil alone and also in combination with soap. I love to use the oil alone. I am not a fan of applying soaps on face. This soap lathers well, almost like a cream based soap. However, the combo really deep cleanse the face, removes all kinds of makeup. After washing off the product, I apply my favorite moisturiser and follow other skincare routine such as serum etc.
Now, regarding the soap bar – I prefer cleansing oil alone for makeup removal. When I use the soap. I kind of feel that soap is getting dirty very quick. The smell is clean and refreshing.
Overall, a great way to try the products without buying them separately. Products are formulated WITHOUT – parabens, sulfates, phthalates , mineral oil, petrolatum, urea, and fragrance. Facial bar cleanses, soothes, and calms even the most sensitive skin. If used alone, I find using soap for makeup removal a little messier. I like cleansing oil more. It dissolves surface impurities and makeup on contact without leaving skin feeling tight and stripped. Skin instantly feels moisturized, nourished, and radiant.
