Klairs Gentle Black Cleanser and Exfoliator Duo

The posts I am being asked to write more about currently are all K-Beauty themed, with so many questions about cleansing and masking, today's post is all about cleansing with Klairs. Klairs, if you have never heard of the brand was founded back in 2010 and state that Klairs is respectful of the beauty of the environment and carries healthy values regarding the earth. The brand has three simple philosophies which include no harsh ingredients, no animal testing and high-quality products at reasonable prices.

The two products I chose for cleansing by Klairs are the Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil and the Gentle Black Sugar Facial polish which work really well together.  If you love to double cleanse and want to try something new, these will definitely tick your boxes.

The advice I was given when it comes to cleansing is to use something that is either oil or balm based as your first cleanse followed by something water based such as a gel or foam to give that deep cleanse.  So the Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil is the one I have been using as a first cleanse and I admittedly did expect the oil to be black in colour, but it is clear and smells absolutely amazing.  
Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil
It is actually formulated with natural oils and they include:
  • Black Bean which helps to control sebum production, increase the skin’s elasticity, and provides a soothing effect.
  • Black Sesame Oil which helps to prevent dehydration and skin ageing while at the same time providing powerful effects from antioxidant through various useful components such as Beta-carotene, Rinolenic acid, Sesamin, Sesaminol and Tocopherol.
  • Black Currant Seed Oil works to strengthen the skin's protective layer to prevent the evaporation of moisture from the skin. It promotes skin cell regeneration and provides antioxidant effects by containing various minerals.
I love the simpleness of this oil and how effective it is as a first cleanse.  Some cleansing oils are a little too greasy and can leave the skin feeling pretty horrendous, so I want to use an oil that doesn't cling to the skin and leave me feeling as though I have rubbed my face my a chunk of lard.

The second product I have been using is the Gentle Black Facial Polish and I use this once or twice a week depending on my skin is feeling.  It is formulated using black sugar which aids in the removal of dead skin cells and blackheads. The fine particles of sugar and unsaturated fatty acids melt onto and into the skin to aid the removal of deeply rooted blackheads and sebum within the pores. It also exfoliates the skin removing anything that dead or dry is its place and as the texture is quite thick, you only need a small amount to work your entire face and to use, you mix it with a few drops of water to make a paste and then massage it onto the skin in circular motions. What I love is that although this scrub contains black sugar, it isn't overly abrasive, but you can feel it working its magic.

I have combination skin, so with an oily t-zone I also have dry patches of skin, usually on both of my cheeks, so in order to keep my skin as smooth as possible, products like this are a godsend to use. Alongside the black sugar, you will also find Shea Butter and Cranberry which work to smooth and moisturise the skin and then there is the inclusion of both Vitamin A and E which hydrate and comfort the skin.

Klairs have so many incredible sounding products that it is hard not to just purchase them all and give them a try, but if you are in the market for some new cleansing products, then these two are currently on offer with Tonic15 for just £38 (here)
