Beauty Product: Eve Lom Cleanser

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 25 years you'll have heard of Eve Lom's iconic cleanser. Acclaimed by Vogue as “probably the best cleanser in the world”, this truly is a miracle product! With its unique blend of four aromatic oils to cleanse, decongest, tone, exfoliate, it's the only cleanser I've found which removes all traces of make up (including waterproof mascara) without stripping my skin. It's a thicker consistency than most cleansers, more of a balm than anything else but it transforms into an oil as you massage it into your skin.  You then immerse the accompanying muslin cloth in hot-as-you-can-bear water, wringing out any excess and placing the cloth over your face for two to three seconds, which helps to open the pores allowing the aromatic oils to better penetrate the skin. It's a true beauty ritual: you have to be dedicated and, yes, it takes a little more effort than your average face wash but the results are astounding (and believe you me I would rather choose the snooze button over anything!)

Eve Lom is available to buy here.

  1. I'm definitely giving it a try! I am now using Bioderma's micellar water and in all honesty it's overrated. I am hoping this will make a nice change.
