At BEAUTY PIE, we pride ourselves on always having a selection of the best facial cleansers, so whether you’ve got issues with a chronically clogged t-zone, or are dry skinned or sensitive in spots, or you’re suddenly dealing with rosacea and redness, or you’ve always had very oily/acne skin, we’ve got the perfect cleanser for you. A thorough nightly cleanse is the first step in any skincare routine, and it’s an important one to get right.
In the four years since we launched skincare, we’ve made it a mission to try pretty much every new skin cleansing technology on the market, and test hundreds of submissions from luxury skincare suppliers (yes, the same suppliers that other premium skincare brands get their cleansers from, too) in South Korea, Japan, Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, the UK and the USA.
So far, six amazing face cleansers have made the grade, the very first has since been eclipsed by even more stellar technology. (We loved it, but when we found something even better, we let it go.) It’s how it works at BEAUTY PIE. We’re in constant evolution. Not only do we source and create formulas that we believe are better than anything else out there, we’re always open to upgrading our own.
And so when this Hot Oil Double Cleansing Balm arrived from one of our favourite labs in Japan, our skincare team (Sam, Rav, Switz, Kim, and Marcia) unpacked our organic cotton washcloths, pulled on our headbands, and got ready to put it to the test. The data sheets assured us that despite the release of a bit of ‘heat’, it was safe for all skin types, being fragrance free, and rinseable, and so we all dove in immediately.
It could have been the massaging (hypnotizing, relaxing, rubbing the wrinkles off our end of the day faces). It could have been the brief flash of warming (maybe, we thought, the clogs in our faces were melting right then and there). It could have been the Niacin-rich Rice Bran Oil, the soothing Aloe Vera, the nourishing and emulsifying Baobab Sariche Oil (the exotic sounding-ness of which transports one to another place, somewhere far away from the recurring scene of one’s own sink). But probably, it was the deep-purifying, blackhead emulsifying, nourishing, pampering, balmy face cleansing gorgeousness. And the fact that -according to the data sheet- it’s a DOUBLE CLEANSE in a single cleanser.
Every last one of us was hooked.
Of course a debate ensued as to which toner and which exfoliator to use after it. But that really depends on your biggest skin concerns. Naturally before we hit ‘go’, we made sure it was palm-oil-free, a ‘clean’ formula, and cruelty-free (like everything we offer). And we know you’ll love it as much as we do!
