Before you jump into the shower to wash off the day, squirt a pump of this natural Jojoba Oil Cleanser into your palm and massage it into your face. Splash the skin with some water (Oh how refreshing) and continue to massage while the oils emulsify. Wash off with water, or a damp face cloth.Why?
Forget those harsh make-up removers, get a cleanser that will nourish, soothe, and bind to remove any impurities or makeup in one go.
