The Serious Cleanse

The Serious Cleanse

Même si je me considère ultra-sobre question beauté, j’avoue que je deviens un peu diva concernant mon rituel de soin minimaliste. Le coupable : Eve Lom.
 

En fait, je ne peux plus me passer de leur nettoyant et de son effet sur ma peau. Attendez, je sais que c’est le luxe ultime, donc je ne l’utilise que deux fois par semaine, mais mes petites séances en tête à tête avec Eve Lom dans ma salle de bain sont devenues un vrai rituel. Je vous explique…
 

Ce nettoyant s’utilise d’une façon bien précise, c’est pour ça qu’il est vendu avec une petite mousseline de lin. D’abord, on prend une noisette de nettoyant et on l’étale sur tout le visage (à l’aide de mouvements circulaires). Le produit devient alors blanc et presque savonneux, assez épais. Ensuite, on imbibe le morceau de tissu d’eau chaude, on le laisse poser cinq secondes sur la peau pour que les pores s’ouvrent. On rince le tissu et on renouvelle l’opération.

Après le second rinçage, on utilise le linge pour enlever le surplus de nettoyant, toujours en mouvements circulaires, pour exfolier la peau en douceur. On termine en rinçant le tissu à l’eau froide puis on l’étend sur le visage une dernière fois pour refermer les pores (c’est ce qu’on dit), résultat, on a la peau la plus douce du monde. Sans rire, je dis aux gens de me toucher la peau juste après pour qu’ils se rendent compte. On m’a même dit que ça me donnait l’air lumineux, je vous jure.
 

Alors, vous êtes prêtes à vous joindre à moi le mercredi et le dimanche pour un petit nettoyage ?

  • I use the clinique one. Cheaper, no fragrance and easy access.

    Its great but not that great.

    Coconut oil works really well too. I think it’s the massage you give yourself and the gentle exfoliation after that are the culprits.

  • Je l’utilise depuis 15 ans, c’est le meilleur produit pour avoir bonne mine!

  • I love a good cleansing balm but this one is so pricey considering the ingredients it contains (mineral oil, PEG-lanolin which are super cheap ingredients)…..I just don’t undertsand.x

  • I love anything khiels!

  • I’ve heard good things about this cleanser but to be honest it is way overpriced considering that the first ingredient is mineral oil. Mineral oil is pretty much the cheapest cosmetic ingredient (next to water) and it isn’t even that beneficial for skin other than the fact that it’s gentle.

  • Been using it for years now and I can’t recommend it enough!!! As you say it’s not just the product but that night time ritual. Now I have the travel size and an additional muslin cloth so I can enjoy it everywhere I go ;-) Glad to know the Love for Lom is growing!!

  • je suis Addict au cleanser de EVE LOM… Étant parisienne vraiment heureuse de pouvoir trouver ce nettoyant chez e-clat dans le 2ème arrondissement où sur http://www.e-clat.fr.
    Merci Garance pour tes précieux conseils.

  • Eve Lom + Clarisonic = Magic!

  • Thanks for revealing your beautiful ritual! I’ll try with my favorite by DCL Skincare: a balancing cleanser, which exfoliates and hydrates. Perfect like you say to start with warm water to open pores and finish with cold water!

  • Yay for proper cleansing routine! It’s such a joy when you take the time to do it properly :) I treat it like an absolute ritual.
    Agree with Allison above though – Eve Lom is overpriced and contains mineral oil. There are superior choices, for less of a wallet hit. Also, I must disagree with one thing – pores are not doors and do not open & close. A common misconception. For anyone else that loves skin myths being shut down, look up Caroline Hirons. A true skin specialist with a no-nonsense approach, I adore her! Thanks for the post.

  • I do the same ritual but witha regular avene cleanser :) works wonders :)

  • I use the camomille cleansing balm or the cleansing oil from the Body Shop and it’s great and only a fraction of the Eve Lom price. I also quite like the Clinique 7 day scrub.I think it’s like some people mentioned already, it’s probably more about the ritual and the soft and gentle way you have to handle your skin. I find that if I take my time with some simple products (i.e.e Body Shop cleansing balm followed by a gentle Sephora toner) and moisturize well afterwards, my skin is also super soft.

    I have super sensitive skin, roseca is my main problem but Eve Lom and a Clairsonic are the best! I panic when the jar is nearly empty, it really helps with my skin.

  • I’ve been using this cleanser for years now. I swear by it.

  • i had a sample and tried it but then i found out that it contains parabens so i never bought it. i now use Kari Gran’s oil cleanser and love it.
