Do I really need to cleanse and what happens If I don’t?
Your dead skin cells will basically start building up creating a hard surface on your skin and it will feel ruff and uneven. The skin wont absorbs any moisture, due to that everything is clogged up. This is also what happened to my skin (read my skin story), not that I didn’t wash, but that my skin was so dry and I didn’t know how much I really needed to exfoliate (just because of my dry skin). So everything I put on just stayed on top. Nothing would penetrate my dry surface.
This is a hmmm, euuuu, well, maybe, I really don’t know product. And by that I mean that I really don’t know what to say about it and its effect on my skin. I do like it though, which makes it even more difficult to write. But let me try.
If I think of this product as a “non-conventional collagen product” and try to think of it as a Korean collagen product, then I like it a lot. It is really moisturizing, and my skin likes it a lot. But if I think of it as a Collagen product in the way people here (Europe) normally think about Collagen I would say bogus, but I like it.
Basically it is as it sounds, cleansing twice. This is a great way of getting you face really clean.
How many are using, one cleanser, and then a toner on a cotton pad. Then you look at the cotton pad, is it clean? No, most often it is not. What people, including me (before Korean skincare was all on my brain) did, was using toner as your last step. Korean toners are so much more than that and should not be used as a last cleansing of the residue step. You can read about Korean toners here
