Oh Precleanse! How do I love thee, let me count the ways? First let’s flashback (cue the Wayne’s World music) 12 years ago, when a certain red head was back in esthetics school and first heard of a double cleanse. Wait what, double cleanse… washing your face twice!?!? I couldn’t possibly think of anything more ridiculous, what a crazy gimmick! How could I convince clients to wash twice? I didn’t think I’d buy into it and I couldn’t have been more wrong! Now, flash forward, I started working with Kasia and Buffalo Gal Organics and the first product I asked her to formulate for Nickel City Skin Care was a precleansing oil, and, of course, she came through!
The brilliance behind the double cleanse is you’re removing impurities and make up from your skin, allowing your cleanser to ACTUALLY cleanse your skin. Buffalo Gal Organics Precleanse Oil is our first step in the process. Like attracts like, and most skin care products these days are oil/petroleum based, so it’s oil-based formula melts away layers of makeup, residual sunscreen, environmental pollutants, along with other built up products resting on the skin. Buffalo Gal Organics Precleanse is a beautifully light weight oil with no added chemicals or funky junk. Sunflower, coconut and peach kernel oils, rich in antioxidents and nutrients, help reduce inflammation and moisturize skin, lessening premature signs of aging. Rice bran oil’s exfoliating properties help regenerate the skin, as well as nourish the skin with vitamin E. Refreshing grapefruit, a natural astringent, removes excess oils within the pores, and helps control acne breakout. Rosemary oil has antiseptic and antimicrobial qualities making it beneficial in efforts to eliminate eczema, dermatitis, oily skin and acne. Rosemary helps tone the skin and aids dryness.
Start with dry hands to dry skin and gently massage Precleanse onto your face. The oil will dislodge and attract dirt, grime, leftover makeup including waterproof mascara, then go over with your favorite Buffalo Gal Organics cleanser with damp hands. The cleanser emulsifies the Precleanse and helps rinse it off leaving you with a clean and fresh feeling face. Having a clean canvas allows your toners, serums, and moisturizers to work more effectively, allowing for better results. Great skin is a journey, and Buffalo Gal Organics Precleanse is the first step.
