If like myself you've only just wrapped your head around double cleansing, worry not triple cleansing isn't complicated nor a daunting task. In essence Erborian define triple cleansing as combing an oil based cleanser with a water based cleanser (or exfoliant product) and employing the services of either a Konjac sponge or Bamboo Fibre Cloth. I'll level and say that is not a technique that I use daily, rather it is something I reserve for when I have a full, thick face of make-up and want to ensure every scrap is gone. Otherwise it is two rounds with the same cleanser (more often than not a balm or oil based option) and a muslin cloth, job done. If the 1-2-3 Detox Ritual intrigues you let me share my thoughts on Erborian Cleansing Crème Aux 7 Herbes - easily the star of the show.
Erborian Cleansing Crème Aux 7 Herbes is what I would describe as an almost gel come balm cleanser; a thick yet soft and easy to melt texture that glides onto the skin and quickly dissolves all traces of make up. As with most cleansers of this nature when combined with water it emulsifies for a deeper cleanse. The beauty of this product is that it not only features a stellar list of ingredients (more on that below) but it truly does feel luxurious both on the skin and the effects after use. The almost oily texture gently hydrates even the driest of complexions, all without leaving behind any tacky residue nor overwhelming the skin (even oily complexions) - along with removing make up, dirt and grime it leaves the skin feeling comforted and soothed.
The triple cleansing concept aside (I'm still getting to grips with the process) Erborian Cleansing Crème Aux 7 Herbes is a great gentle yet effective cleanser that leaves my skin feeling deeply cleansed all without drying out my skin or leaving it feeling tight. Yes it is a gel come balm formulation but it is breeze to remove, and due to such texture it does inject a little moisture for plump, comfortable yet refreshed and glowing skin. Overall this is a great cleanser for most if not all complexions and will be perfect for dried out Winter skin.
