Shortlist loves… EVE LOM cleanser

Published

on

This is one of those cult beauty products that anyone who knows anything about the beauty industry will invariably put on a top ten list. I hadn’t heard of it until a friend very kindly gave me a pot and now I’m hooked.

It has been around for 25 years and was developed by Eve Lom herself using herbs from her grandmother’s garden in the Czech Republic. Eve has since sold the company to SpaceNK but the cleanser remains the same magical, rich product she created all those years ago. There is a massage routine with it (Eve doesn’t really believe in creams, she believes in stimulating the skin through touch) and the few times I have had time to do this I have seen a difference. But usually I just cleanse and luxuriate…

Why is cleansing important:

  • Removes toxins and impurities from the skin
  • Removes dirt and make-up from the skin
  • Removes dead skin
  • Unclogs pores
  • The accompanying massage stimulates your skin

And if you don’t cleanse, you:

  • Increase the risks of premature ageing from external elements*
  • Leave impurities on the skin that will turn into free radicals and age your skin
  • Will have dull skin tone

Pro advice: According to Dr Nathalie Issachar, Global Director of Product Development for Clarins, around 75 per cent of visible side effects of skin ageing have to do with causes such as pollution and the sun, only 25 per cent are genetic.

Available at Talise Spa at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, AED805 for 100ml with a rescue mask and Raffles Spa, Dubai, AED649 for 200ml
