Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner
Hylamide is a fantastic skincare brand, and their High Efficiency Face Cleaner is a great option for those looking to keep their pores clean and moisturise at the same time. The cleanser is made of Mediterranean Crambe and East Asian Kanuga oils that work with plant-derived esters to eliminate every trace of impurity. As you rinse off, sustainably-sourced Amazonian oils together with purified tomato carotenoids leave behind an innocuous layer of comfortable, non-comedogenic hydration. Unlike traditional oil cleaners, this advanced micro-emulsion does not require using a towel or mitt to clean the face as it rinses off efficiently with water in a single step.
