When it comes to skincare, there are certain rules I cannot bring myself to break. Number one is cleansing. Every morning and every night I need to wash my face. It’s not a matter if I’ve been wearing makeup, where I’ve been or how tired I am – right before I head to bed, I’m in the bathroom washing my face. As a result of this, I’ve had the chance to try out 101 cleansing options – and I never come across anything like Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Cleanser.
Packaged in a chic pump-top bottle, the Cleanser isn’t your usual gel or oil. Instead it’s a whisper-light foam. Completely scentless and weightless, massaging a few pumps of it into skin feels more like a spa treatment than daily cleansing. The cloud-like texture is filled with active ingredients such as panthenol and aloe vera that work to soothe and calm skin. It takes off makeup without feeling harsh, and the inclusion of Purslane works to heal skin.
