The Magic Cleanser phenomenon: 4 Steps to beautiful skin

The key to clear complexion and glowing skin has a lot to do with a few good steps (or more if you’re on the Korean skincare routine) that you need to abide by in your daily routine. While pampering your skin with a weekly facial mask and getting it exfoliated down pat are golden rules we all know of, we sometimes overlook the importance of cleansing and what it does to our skin.

But if you’ve heard of the ‘Magic Cleanser’ phenomenon, you’d know that there are a slew of new-gen cleansers specially created to deliver more than just cleansing. Here are four highlights from Sephora that we vouch for when it comes to achieving beautiful skin:

When we say that this magic cloth removes all makeup using only water, we aren’t kidding. The Original Makeup Eraser removes all traces of your makeup (including waterproof mascara for you skeptics out there) without chemicals, all thanks to its fabric weave that picks up makeup on the face. All you need to do is damp the cloth with water and rub it in a circular motion, et voilà! The best part? This makeup eraser can be used up to a whopping 1000 times.

If you’re on the lookout for anti-ageing products that can help your skin out while you’re cleansing, Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Ageing Foaming Cleanser is one useful product to have in your bathroom shelf. Its combination of Alguronic Acid and Microalgae Oil works to minimise appearance of fine lines, and we love that it is formulated without parabens, sulphates and synthetic dyes for a gentle effect upon your skin.

For those who are extra finicky about what they lather on their faces, Estelle & Thild’s Biocleanse Silky Soft Cleansing Milk is one for you. This certified organic cleanser nourishes dry skin while melting away makeup and impurities, so you don’t have to worry about extra dry and taut skin post-cleansing. The creamy formula imbues anti-inflammatory and nourishing properties of Black Elderflower and Aloe Vera plant.

Arcona Cranberry Gommage is a 2-in-1 cleanser that you can come in handy especially when you’re on-the-go. It exfoliates, tones and decongests enlarged pores, making it an especially effective cleanser for combination skin (and even for all skin types!) A combination of jojoba beads, volcanic minerals, cranberry and raspberry enzymes gently exfoliate skin while leaving it polished and refined.
