Simple Ordinary PM Skincare Routine

My skin is dry-dehydrated type. For the past four years, I've relied on this straightforward routine to reset my skin. It has been gentle, didn't cause breakouts or acne, and effectively faded my dark spots (post-acne marks). Plus, it deeply nourishes my skin without any irritation.

Squalane Cleanser

I use this as a first cleanser in my double-cleansing routine. It removes makeup, SPF, and dirt while nourishing the skin's moisture barrier with plant-based squalane, resulting in soft and smooth skin. ๐Ÿ‘‰The texture of The Squalane Cleanser is quite thick, and it feels like a balm when you first apply it to your skin. As you massage it into your skin, it transforms into an oil that effectively breaks down and removes makeup and dirt.

An excellent choice for the initial step in a double cleansing routine. It has a balm texture that transforms into an oil when warmed on your skin. Emulsifies nicely. Effective for light makeup and SPF removal. A straightforward, gentle cleanser that does the job.
