Many years ago I grew to know Erno Laszlo skincare because of its cleansing ritual. The ritual was, you were to wash our face with their soap and rinse 30 times. Then you were to use a specialized toner, cream and mask . The mask for me was what sold me on the line. I just wanted that mask. You mixed it up and it hardened on the face and you peeled it off just like a rubber mask. It was so cool. I loved that mask. I used it often. Granted I was only 14 at the time and spent all my money on this mask.
Erno Laszlo is still around and their skincare is still the bomb. They still have the bespoke cleansing ritual, although it has changed some. They still have the same cleansing bar. And they stillhave the same bespoke cleaning technique. You rinse your face 30 times. First you fill up the sink with water. you add Phyletil Cleansing Oil to the water. Then dip the cleansing bar in the water and get a good lather going. Wash face. Rinse face 20 times with that water. Empty sink. Then rinse face 10 times with clean water. Voila! That is the bespoke cleansing technique. This technique is supposed to help clear up the skin, prevent acne, help with anti-aging and give you generally all around good skin.
I tried the following products from Erno Laszlo.I was very happy with them. I did not get to try the Bespoke Cleansing Technique because I did not have the Phyletil Cleansing Oil.Read on for information and reviews of the products I tried.
Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar 5.3 oz. $45.00
The Sea Mud Deep Cleaning Bar is a great way to cleanse the sin. it comes in its own case. The bar boasts the unique therapeutic benefits of the Dead Sea mud, a mineral-rich miracle of nature that deeply detoxifies, exfoliates and hydrates the skin, It is perfect for blemished and stressed skins. It boosts circulation, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and radiant. It also has glycerin, a very powerful moisture magnet that attracts moisture to the skin to protect and hold hydration for a more glowing complexion. Palm and palm kernel oils regulate skin's own oil content while reinforcing its defenses against outside stressors, as it ramps up cell turnover beneath the surface of the skin.
The cleansing bar boasts the highest concentration of powerful skincare actives. In addition, some of the bars rely on advanced nano-encapsulation technology to deliver time-released spheres able to penetrate skin's surface allowing active ingredients to work longer than conventional cleansers. Plus, contrary to popular belief, cleansing bars are inherently unfriendly environments to microbes that only grow on food sources (such as sebum). Basically as soon as the bar touches skin, it begins to combat the oil that bacteria thrive on.
I love cleansing with this bar. It makes my skin feel clean, but not dry. It also deeply cleanses my skin rather than just barely touches the surface like some cleansers. You can tell by the way my skin feels afterward. It just feels better.
