Beauty 101: a clean face!

Gels and foams

What we love!
Bottles with a pump are very interesting because you avoid contamining of the product with your hands. It’s also ideal to prevent making a mess in the bathroom!

Tip
Opt for a gel or foam in the morning and alternate with a cream or milk in the evening. Certain bottles can also easily be carried in the shower.

Beware! With children around, it is definitively recommended to choose plastic containers over glass ones.

Milks and creams

What we love!
Their softness and creaminess: an ultra soft beauty treatment for your skin.

Tip
Often very soothing, we especially like use them in our evening ritual.

Toners

What we love!
To tighten pores, remove residual impurities and balance your skin’s normal pH.

Tip
Use an alcohol-free toner to prevent your skin from drying up.

Soap bars

What we love!
No doubt about it, soap bars are a classic. Many soap bars now have a rounder shape to better fit your hands.

Tip
Buy a soap box and mark it as you own personal soap bar!

Beware! Choose soap made for your face’s sensitive skin. Keep it clean and make sure it does not lay on counter tops (a bacterial nest!). Remember to wash your hands thoroughly before manipulating your soap bar.
