Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
I love my skincare, as most of you know by now. It's so important in not only helping your makeup do its job, but ensuring it looks good for years to come. There's a reason why so many older woman look younger, and it's not just good genes! Double cleanse is my saviour when it comes to keeping my skin in check. No amount of makeup remover wipes or half-arsed facial scrubs are going to do it any justice, but a double cleanse can't be beaten. If you're not double cleansing, you've got to start as it's not a fad, it just works. At night, I'll generally start with an oil based cleanser to remove all my days makeup and then move onto something a little more hardwearing. Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Concealer is one of the most luxurious cleaners I've ever used. With a brand used by the likes of Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, I knew I was onto a winner!
Pai has a commitment to sensitive skin of all types, so it doesn't matter if you're dry or oily, young or old, they have something for everyone. Another massive bonus is that (aside from their Bergamot Organic Lip Balm) all products are Vegan accredited, Cruelty-Free and hold a certification from the Soil Association as well as being free of all those chemical and synthetic nasties. As my skin is dry, prone to dehydration, has a touch of oil along my t-zone as well as sporting some rather 'dashing' redness with a tiny cluster of spider veins I was in dire need of something that was going to help. I was recommend the Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser as my skin was so out of balance. As 99% of skin imbalance comes down to cleansing, this sounded like the perfect answer to my skincare woes.
Let me start by saying that the packaging alone makes me want to buy up the entire range in my skin type. The cleanser comes with an organic muslin cloth, perfect when removing this creamy and gentle product. I was struck by how lovely the scent was as I'm not a massive fan of rose (which unfortunately features in a fair amount of dry skin products due to its properties), and the camellia pushes it back to a much more neutral floral fragrance. I love really working this deep into my skin, and massaging it away with the cloth. It leaves the everything smooth, silky and highly nourished. It has been my go-to cleanser for a week now, morning and night and has made drastic improvements to my tone, clarity and texture of my skin.
