Skin Care Product Focus: Facial Cleansers

What are facial cleansers and why we want to use them?

Makeup Gourmet Facial Cleansers


In the pursuit of maintaining healthy, young looking skin, it starts with the facial cleanser. We pamper the face with special care so it looks and feels especially good.

A facial cleanser helps keep skin clean by removing dirt, sweat, excess sebum (oils naturally produced by the skin), cosmetics, dead skin cells, bacteria, and any pollutants that come in contact with your skin.

The trick is to cleanse the skin without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture barrier and Ph balance. This requires a cleanser with a more sophisticated formulation to meet this criteria.

As with shampoos, it is often suggested to have 2 facial cleansers to meet the needs of your skin now and to alert it out of its complacent reaction to the use of the same product daily.

Makeup Gourmet offers 2 cleansers.

Foaming Creme Cleanser: Skin softening and helpful with the breakdown and removal of makeup.

Renewing Creme Cleanser:  Invigorating and contains Glycolic Acid to aid in exfoliation.

Important note: Sulfates, which are used to simulate soap suds, are never used in any Makeup Gourmet Skin Care products.
