How much attention do you pay when cleansing your face?

Ok, we've established in the past that when it comes to some beauty habits (sunscreen, teeth brushing, moisturising for example) I'm annoyingly pedantic but other beauty chores I am, well, a bit lazy.  I don't line or prime my lips pre-lipstick, I actually can't remember the last time I brushed my hair and I'm pretty sure the polish clinging to my toe nails was applied in summer.  

An area of my skin care routine where I'm really inconsistant is cleansing my face.  I mean I give it the water treatment twice a day, I'm not a total heathen, but I only use cleanser when I'm wearing makeup or feel particularly grubby.   You see, up until a few years ago, to me the word cleanser was synonymous with facial wash.  Foam.  Facial soap.  Squeaky clean skin that felt too clean and would feel tight and dry.  So I just didn't use one.  

Obviously working for BR I've since discovered me a couple of fabulous cream cleansers and oil cleansers, and I do now use a cleanser semi-regularly, but I give the act of cleansing no more than a minute of my time a day. Wet face, rub on cleanser, rinse.  

You're probably thinking why on earth I'm waffling on about my lack of good cleansing - well its this video.  You see, I was researching our latest trial product and there was a very handy instructional video, and well, it's made me rethink a few things.

Why aren't I taking the time every day to enjoy cleansing my face?  You know, creating a sensory experience, relaxing as I literally wash the day away? Why don't I pay a bit more attention to what is actually an important step in one's skin care routine?  (Seriously kids, do as I say, not as I do - use a cleanser daily!)

You might have guessed - we're putting the Evolu Relaxing Creme Cleanser to the test.  This gentle facial wash will deeply clean and clarify without stripping the skin of its natural defences. The effective non-foaming formula uses a balanced blend of botanical actives to cleanse impurities and effectively remove face and eye make-up.

Just look at the properties of the botanical actives:

Calendula   - anti-aging, protective
Geranium   - calming, therapeutic, improves circulation
Apricot Extract  - softens, hydrates
St John's Wort   - calms inflamed skin, helpful for blemishes

It's suitable for all skin types, especially those with sensitivities or problem dryness and promises to leave the skin relaxed, soothed and polished.

It sounds great right?  And of course, being an Evolu product your guaranteed an incredible aromatic experience too.  So why not tell us about your cleansing habits - do you take your time and enjoy your cleansing routine, or is it a step you don't give much attention to?  Do you cleanse twice a day, or like me, are you a little more haphazard with your cleansing routine?  Why would you like to try the Evolu Relaxing Creme Cleanser?

It's the first thing I do in the shower at night but I really should get in the habit of cleansing I'm the morning. I just use what ever is in the shower.

oooo if it was a sensory experience I'd be more inclined to enjoy the experience! At the moment I just erm wash my face! haha and focus particularly on my problem areas such as my chin. If this product is hydrating and good for blemishes then I'd definitely love to give it a try!
