The cleanser has a gritty texture, but it is not intended to be used as a scrub, rather than rubbing it into your skin use fingertips to press and roll it over the surface of your skin. The creamy almond base binds with any dirt on the skin and, as you do the press and roll movements, and lifts it from the pores. It also maintains the skin's moisture levels and pH balance, ensuring your skin is comfortable after cleansing.
This deep cleansing cream maintains the pH balance so that the acidic barrier protecting your skin is not broken down. It also maintains and supports the skin's natural moisture level. With its aromatic blend of medicinal herbal extracts this preparation is specially formulated with anthyllis, calendula, chamomile and st.john's wort, which combine perfectly to clean, invigorate and refresh the skin.

Hints and Tips: Cleansing Cream has grains of nut in it but it is NOT an exfoliant, and you must not scrub with the product. Scrubbing only tears off skin cells that may not yet be ready to come off, thus encouraging sensitivity and other adverse reactions. The Cleansing Cream encourages the skin cells to slough off more effectively, so your skin still glows and looks healthy without needing to rub. Enjoy the rhythmical pressing and lifting movement! Use plenty of warm water to make sure it is properly rinsed off.
Be careful when using the product around the eyes. If you are wearing quite a lot of make-up around your eyes, then use a little Cleansing Milk on damp cotton wool to remove it first. We recommend muslins for cleansing your face. Using a loosely wrung out warm muslin compress relaxes the skin and softens the walls of the pores allowing deep cleansing to be achieved. The skin's own functions are also stimulated. A cool muslin compress applied to the skin after cleansing closes the pores, expelling any remaining impurities, leaving you with a clearer complexion. By using a clean muslin every time you wash your face, you will prevent cross-infection occurring. The muslins can be washed in a hot wash to kill bacteria.
