The other day, I got to thinking about my cleansing habits. I can’t imagine going without the two-step method of using a designated makeup remover first (micellar, bi-phase, cleansing oil, etc.) followed by a foaming facial wash. But when I was in high school and college, I only used to go for a heavy foam, heavy-duty (read: drying) facial wash and and proceeded with a cotton soaked with an alcohol-based toner. In retrospect, yikes.
Anyway, I’m much more particular about cleansers nowadays due to my dry skin. And since I’ve read a lot of raves about Aveda products, I decided to give Aveda Botanical Kinetics Purifying Creme Cleanser (USD 25 for 5 fl oz / 150ml) a shot.
