I recently got a bag of cosmetic samples as a gift with my purchase. Normally the little products go forgotten in a drawer until they get tossed in one of my many clean-out purges. Not this time, I actually lined up the products and used them…well I used one of them! I have dry, sensitive skin and am very careful about what I use on my skin. I have been going to Lena, at Maksim Spa, for facials since I was 25 (!) and she keeps reminding me that it is all about OIL. So when I got my little bag of goodies I was intrigued with the Laura Mercier Purifying Cleansing Oil. The saleslady told me to massage a small amount all over my face, including eye lids, and rinse thoroughly with warm water. She claimed it would take off all my makeup, even my mascara! I did just as she said and it was amazing how soft and CLEAN my face was. I have been using my little sample for about three weeks and it still has more washes left! I will admit I did a sweep of a toner dampened cotton pad to test that my face was actually clean and it was!!
After I wash my face with the Laura Mercier Purifying Cleansing Oil, I massage on the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I am hooked on both products. Lena was right, it is all about oil! I know my skin can now handle the cold weather and dry heat in my house because I wake up to very soft, refreshed skin. I can’t turn back the clock, but I can take care of what I have!
