Is it just me, or is the name of this product EXCESSIVELY long?
Anyhoo, let me tell you about it. Ever heard of the concept of double cleansing? As in washing your face not once, but TWICE? Yeah, I know that doesn’t sound radical at all, but I swear that when Dermalogica first introduced this concept—via a product you may be familiar with, called PreCleanse—beauty editors across the nation (okay, we’re all in Toronto) gasped in shock.
“You mean if I only wash my face once, it’s not actually CLEAN? And that I’m actually leaving dirt, sunscreen, makeup and sebum on my face?”
YES. It’s true. Oh, the horrors.
Now, some people don’t like the idea of putting all that oil on their face (PreCleanse, among others, is an oil, requiring emulsification with water). So may I present to you an alternative? I’ve been using The Product Whose Name is Too Long for a few weeks now as my initial cleansing step (I follow it up with Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Minimizing Cleanser for good measure) and I’m enjoying its creamy, gentle, easy-to-rinse-off texture.
Like my other favourite Physicians Formula product, it contains organic lavender essential oil and is free of all the baddies: mineral oil (a BIG one if you’re trying to get clean—duh!), sulfates, parabens and synthetic preservatives, colours and fragrances.
Priced at $15.79 each and available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
