I have oily skin. Despite the fact that my skin is beginning to change it still has a personality disorder which causes it to believe it’s a Fry Daddy, especially in the summer. So it was with great reluctance that I used the Eve Lom cleanser given to me by Rescue owner Danuta Mieloch. It felt so counterintuitive. It comes in a little jar and looks like a Vaseline body scrub?! But when I touched it I fell instantly in love. I am obsessed with this product. I have a very Mad Men moment each time I use it, it’s so wonderfully 1960’s. Joan Holloway would love this product. It makes me want to sit at my Grandmother’s vanity table and apply a full face of makeup just so I can Eve Lom it off. It has to be one of the lightest silkiest most luxurious cleansers out there. And it breaks down makeup like nobody’s business. When I get home at night I’m tired and really not trying to do a lot with a skin care ritual. Eve Lom makes it so easy. You simply massage this product into your skin and watch it liquefy into a light oily consistency. You then press a warm moist cloth to the skin which will remove it easily. Follow this with a cool moist cloth press and you’re done. Use whatever is appropriate for your skin afterwards; for me it’s a spritz of Ayurvedic rosewater and a little Valmont Factor 3 eye cream.
Remember: oil removes oil. Eve Lom is very compatible with my skin type and seems to be exactly what it needs.
