I just returned from a long weekend in South Lake Tahoe. If you have never been, it is a must-go destination sometime in your lifetime. It is just absolutely beautiful – nature at its best. I will have to share photos later!
But, what I wanted to let you in on (since it is a Monday and thus a beauty-dedicated day), is that after traveling 10 hours back home from Tahoe by car today, the first thing I wanted to do was wash my face! Driving and sitting in the car just makes me feel gross and exhausted (ugh…a really good combo). So, it was a good time to try my Dermalogica gift pack that I received at the Mazur Beauty Biz Roundtable #4. I have been meaning to use my wonderful Dermalogica goodies for a while now, but now I had a truly great reason.
I totally love the Dermalogica PreCleanse product. In fact, upon arriving home, that was one of the first things I did – apply PreCleanse! PreCleanse is recommended for all skin conditions and is the professional’s deep cleansing weapon! This double cleansing regimen helps me achieve ultra clean and healthy skin – the perfect answer to getting a fresh clean feeling after traveling all day!
PreCleanse is a plant-based cleansing oil, fortified with Olive and Kukui Nut oils, and it thoroughly melts layers of excess sebum, sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual skin products that build-up during the day. When water is added, it easily rinses away oil-based debris from the skin. Formulated with conditioning Rice Bran and Vitamin E oils, it is a great start to a thorough cleansing routine.
First, you rub the oil onto your face with dry hands and a dry face. Then, apply water to your hands to create a milky emulsion which rinses away all the oil-based debris that’s been sitting on your skin all day. I follow this up with a cleanser, a toner, and then finally moisturizer. Lucky for me, I had all of Dermalogica’s products (i.e., the Special Cleansing Gel, the Multi-Active Toner, and the Active Moist Moisturizer) to do the whole routine. Anyway, it was the perfect antidote to my grimy-feeling skin! I LOVE IT!
On a separate (but related) note, if you are in the Southern Californian area and are a beauty/cosmetic professional, the Mazur Group will be hosting its Beauty Biz Roundtable #5 in Santa Monica this coming Wednesday. 9/21.
