Squeaky Clean

How many of you are addicted to face cleansers? To that feeling of tightened, squeaky clean skin that tells you there's no more grime and makeup? Eventually I learned that this practice actually over-dries the skin, interferes with its natural balance and is not good whatsoever.

I've settled on a simple routine of makeup remover towelettes and damp, warm washcloths. I don't over dry my face and in return it never freaks out on me. A pretty good deal. However, with the hot and humid weather we've been going through, I could use a little more cleansing action, just without the parched feeling.

I wasn't expecting much from the sample of Bobbi Brown's Lathering Tube Soap, but I'm happily guinea-pigging my skin in the name of this blog. Normally you'd expect a soap that lathers so much to be on the drying side, but, surprisingly, it isn't. It removes makeup, sweat and whatever lands on your face during a NYC day, leaves the face feeling very clean but the tight feeling at the side of the nose that I was expecting never showed up. Of course, one still needs to moisturize well, but I do it year round.

There's also a rich cream version for dry skin, but I haven't tried that one. Personally, I only need a good soap for this time of the year, and when I do, I want it to be more soapy than creamy.
