I have to admit that I am a major fan of the Vanderohe No 1 brand and have honestly been addicted since it launched with its inaugural face serum. So although I don’t have shares in the company I can’t help but wax lyrical about how fabulous the products are! Every time that Olivia adds something new to the collection, I’m like a kid in a candy store … a real gimmee, gimmee, gimmee moment and I’m never disappointed.
So, now whenever I need a mindful, therapeutic cleansing session I reach for this Vanderohe trio and they deliver every time.
The Purifying Cleansing oil
I have to say that currently there are about 5 cleansing oils that I consider to be my repeat buys and this is one of them. The fragrance is addictive and the effect of using it is transformative, but I’m not going to wax lyrical about it here because I’ve already done that in this post all I will say is that this is a fantastic product. Which leads me nicely on to …
The Exfoliating Powder
This works synergistically with the cleansing oil. Okay so here’s a confession: I was so eager to try it out that I didn’t read the instructions…I just went ahead a poured some of this earthy smelling powder into my hands and proceeded to add water to it..which resulted in me holding lump of something resembling a cowpat [I’ll spare you the details of me trying to use this on my face] So after this wasteful exercise I read the instructions, followed them and voila.
How to use
So to be clear, you put 2 or 3 pumps of the cleansing oil into your hand and then you add some of this powder to it…mix together and apply to your face massaging gently. Now it’s important that you remember to stop. I say this because it’s easy to get carried away with the mindful cleansing process and the fragrance.
To remove it you can either just rinse with warm water or a warm face cloth. Just in case you’d like to know, I remove it with a hot muslin cloth which I use to massage it off.
What it does
It leaves my skin super clean, super soft and super glowy…it feels alive after this process.
The brand says “Gentle yet refining, this delicate blend of 100% skin-enhancing plant powders works to shift stubborn dirt and impurities to polish and brighten even the most sensitive skin”.
