What you need to know about the cult beauty brand that launched ‘the best cleanser in the world’

You know a beauty brand is solid (and worth a spot on your beauty shelf) when its current bestselling product was launched more than 30 years ago—and has retained its formula over the years. Eve Lom is one of those brands, renowned for its formulations that are inspired by Czech holistic skincare and crafted using naturally-derived ingredients with the help of modern science. Back in 1986, founder Eve Lom wanted to create a range of products to keep the skin “in good working order”, hence the launch of the brand shortly after its iconic cleanser was introduced to the market.

The brand’s award-winning Eve Lom Cleanser earned its moniker (and cult following) with a formula that’s made for all skin types, concerns and environmental conditions. Made with four aromatic plant oils, this balm cleanser deep cleanses the skin without overly drying it out. If that isn’t impressive enough, it also removes waterproof makeup—even your most stubborn mascara!—and gently exfoliates the skin with the help of the Eve Lom Muslin Cloth. Used together, this process serves as a therapeutic ritual that you can incorporate to your evening beauty routine.


Those who are vying for glowing skin can now shop Eve Lom from Kens Apothecary stores nationwide. Other skincare picks we’re digging from the brand is the Dynaspot, your new lifesaver in case of any emergency zit situations. Made with antiseptic extracts and salicylic acid, the blemish treatment has a universal skin tone tint for it to be used seamlessly under or over makeup, soothing redness and inflammation at the same time. Another award-winning product that has garnered rave reviews is the Rescue Mask, a complexion booster for skin that deserves some down time, stat. It has camphor, almond, and honey-infused kaolin clay to decongest pores, absorb excess oil and smoothen the skin surface. Tip: Indulge it this mask and let it sit for 15 minutes on mornings where your face feels extra puffy to get it back on track.
