More about this product:
2 Step Cleanser is fragrance free and doesn't contain harsh cleansing ingredients, making it the perfect choice for sensitive skin.
Step 1 is oil based. Dry and mature skin types will benefit from the powerful antioxidant and UV repairing powers of the seabuckthorn and apricot oils.
But what about acne prone or oily skin? Seems weird to use oil for these types of skin, right? Hear us out! It has been proven that only oil can effectively dissolve other oils - so, if your skin is oily or prone to acne - the best thing you can do is to use high quality oil as the first step in your cleansing routine. It will gently clear the daily build up of gunk without drying your skin. Don't use harsh cleansers that make you feel squeaky clean, it might feel good at the moment but in the long run they WILL dry you out, causing bacteria to lodge into micro cracks of your dry skin - creating more acne - it's a vicious cycle. If this sounds like you, give our cleanser a try!
Step 2 is gently foaming- our special blend of soap bark, antibacterial birch leaf and antiviral cilantro extract will gently wash away all the residue left from step 1 and purify your pores, without stripping the natural oil barrier.
How to use it:
Step 1 - apply warm water to your face, then pour a small amount of Step 1 into your palm and massage it onto your skin with circular motions. Apply more warm water to help the oils dissolve faster. Wash most of the oil off with warm water.
Step 2 - pour a small amount into your palm, work it onto your face with circular motions, creating a smooth lather. This step will clear away any remaining dirt. Wash off with warm water. Gently pat dry your skin.

Although I have come to trust this brand and would willingly use anything and everything they come up with, but for this cleanser I was skeptical. Since my skin has never never taken kindly to this formulation of facewash. I have always used creamy face washes and everytime I have switched to any other formulation..my skin has reacted. But after two days of using this cleanser, I am hooked ! My skin is clean with a glow on it..not one bit of makeup left after using this, yet it’s not drying! Love love. Thankyou so much for introducing us to your products. I am a customer for life!
