Semua yang perlu diketahui tentang cleanser

Saya adalah penganut double cleansing. Kalau memakai makeup atau produk apapun yang waterproof, sudah tidak bisa tawar-tawar lagi, pasti akan double cleansing. Mungkin ini adalah salah satu rutinitas yang diajarkan oleh merek-merek Jepang yang saya anut sampai sekarang ini dan merasa benar gunanya.

Nah, ternyata double cleansing ini banyak sekali yah yang nanya. Perlu nggak? Kapan perlunya? Produk apa yang bisa dipakai buat double cleansing. Selain itu cleanser sendiri juga banyak menjadi pertanyaan, tipe apa yang cocok buat kulit seperti apa.

Karena banyak pertanyaan dan padahal saya yakin benar di luaran sana pasti sudah banyak informasi, akhirnya saya memutuskan untuk membuat beberapa artikel yang terkait dengan skin care dasar dan merangkumnya dalam satu artikel. Agar pencarian informasi lebih mudah dan juga saya coba menuliskannya dalam bahasa Indonesia karena informasi serupa lebih banyak dalam bahasa Inggris.

Kalau sebelumnya saya sudah membahas tuntas mengenai acid toning, kali ini saya ingin membahas mengenai cleanser dan double cleansing.

Kenapa kita butuh membersihkan wajah?

Jawabannya as simple as kenapa kita butuh mandi? Yah karena ingin membersihkan diri dari semua kotoran dan juga biar segar. Walaupun di rumah seharian pasti tetap akan mandi kan?

Seberapa sering dan kapan membersihkan wajah?

Disarankan dua kali sehari, pagi dan malam. Sangat tidak disarankan sering-sering mencuci wajah karena malah akan membuat wajah kering.

Apa itu double cleansing?

Memakai dua produk berbeda untuk membersihkan wajah. Yang pertama adalah untuk mengangkat kotoran di wajah seperti makeup dan sunscreen dan yang kedua adalah untuk membersihkan kulit dan pori-pori kita secara menyeluruh. Untuk lebih jelasnya bisa dibaca di artikel ini.

Kapan perlu double cleansing?

Biasanya malam hari. Karena pada saat siang hari kita menggunakan makeup atau sunscreen yang waterproof.

Pada pagi hari tidak perlu double cleansing. Kecuali memang pada malam hari menggunakan banyak produk yang berminyak dan merasa butuh membersihkan wajah dua kali.

Inexpensive cream cleanser from Goodnes

Amidst being a new player in the skincare industry, Goodness curated small selection of products have gain many strong followers because their products are inexpensive and exceed the expectation in terms of performance versus price.  The first product that I got from this brand was their Chia Seed Oil, which is the centre piece of their star ingredients. I was blown away by how good the texture are and result on my skin by merely only paying AUD 20 for this oil. I was pretty curious about the rest of the range, but moisturiser is not in my option of to-buy list because it will take sometime to finish. So I snatched the Goodness Every Day Cream Cleanser instead. It’s priced for AUD 16.99 for 150 ml!

First of all, I love the simple packaging with just a hint of tongue-in-cheek marketing gimmick in the way they presented the information on the packaging.

If you’re into jamu slash spa-like scent, you’ll love Hallelujah Cleanser!

I started with one little starter pack of Antipodes skincare and it’s now spiralling out of control. I don’t think I will come across a product from this brand that I will not love. But I haven’t tried everything, so there’s still 50% chance that I might find something that I don’t like. But now is the time to talk about yet another product that I love.

The product that I’m going to review today is the Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser. I got this from Benscrub and it retails for Rp 549,000. This is a PR sample that I got from the lovely Ben, but I have to pick the product that I want so I don’t end up with a product that is not suited for my skin or I don’t like. Perfect arrangement.

Before I begin my review let me tell you about the scent. It’s STRONG! It needs to written in caption because it’s that strong. It reminds me of the scent of Indonesian jamu and all the traditional spices. But if you’re into the natural spices spa scent, than you’ll have no problem with the scent. I know some people who might be put off simply by the scent. On top of that, the scent kind of lingers long after you wash your cleanser.

The Bath Box Sugar for Deep Cleansing

I’m sorry for the #nopostfebruary, I seems to get the message mixed up about the #nobuyfebruary. Are you kidding me? Naturally, on my birthday month, I splurge on a lot of things and shop till I drop :p

Anyway, my first post after a full month of hiatus will be the cult favourite among the Indonesian reader (is it cult yet?) – The Bath Box Sugar Face Cleanser. Sugar is made fresh hence there’s only limited stock available at any given time and it’s not available all the time on The Bath Box website. I’m not sure this is due to the fact that they can store it too long so they prefer the pre-order mechanism or some kind of marketing gimmick. It’s a smart one I must say if it is the latter.

Since a lot of people seems to be anticipating for this review I want to get two things straight first: the facts and the cons. So that I get all of them out of the way before I get into the good stuff. There are some, no worries girls.

The fact: it’s a preservative free and all natural gentle green tea cleanser. But not only that, it’s packed with kaolin clay, which I suspect is a green clay because the combination of clay and green tea alone will not be able to make the cleanser this green. It’s gentle, non drying and great for everyday cleanser – second or morning cleanser – or you can just use it whenever you think you need an extra deep cleansing without the help of a mask. It contains raw sugar granule for mild exfoliant.

Ingredients are as follows:

Kaolin, Carthamus Tinctorius Oil, Camellia Leaf, Vegetable Glycerin, Sucrose, Melaleuca Alternifolia Oil, Lavandula Officinalis Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis Oil, Tocopherol.
