Cleanser for Combination Skin - Don't Underestimate the Basics!
Perfect Cleanser – Don’t Underestimate the Basics!

Regardless of your age, make up removal and preparation of skin before sleep should be a non-negotiable step in your beauty routine. The skin renews itself during sleep, and when you leave make up on, you are preventing that from happening. If you don’t use a cleanser, the skin ceases to breathe and fatigue signs appear soon enough along with other side effects such acne, blackheads and clogged pores.

In Search of the Perfect Cleanser
In my teens I suffered from outbreaks, therefore it was essential for me to maintain a focused daily skincare regime. Having a combination skin, I have been through many cleansers but I always found that if I used the same cleanser for a prolonged period of time its initial results would begin to fade leaving my skin too dry or too oily.

Only in my thirties, did I finally manage to develop a long-term relationship with one cleanser. No matter how many new cleansers I continue to try – each time I find myself coming back! Chantecaille Rice and Geranium Foaming Cleanser lives on my bathroom cabinet shelf for over four years now. And I am completely in love with it. It removes make up, exfoliates my skin and gently cleanse all the dirt and oil residue after a long day. All you need is a tiny amount of the cleanser, which turns into a thick, foamy cream that sweeps away all the impurities. It leaves skin squeaky clean, smooth and refreshed without stripping any moisture. It works on any skin type and is perfect in any climate.

Ingredients: Rice Bran, Geranium, Seaweed, Soybean, Green Tea and Olive Leaves. Rice bran helps gentle exfoliation. Geranium, an anti-bacterial agent traditionally used for healing nicks and cuts, also helps stimulate the lymphatic system. Seaweed aids in the regulation of sebum production. Soybean, green tea and olive leaves are antioxidants that help to protect skin from free-radical damage.
