Directions for Use: Begin by using Africology Hydrating Cleansing Lotion to remove eye makeup. Dampen two reusable cleansing pads, pump a little cleanser onto your pad and gently wipe over the eye area.
Then use the Purifying Cleansing Gel to cleanse the skin. Smooth on damp face, neck and décolleté with fingertips. Gently massage, avoiding the eye area, and remove with warm mitts or water.
Our skincare expert's super tip: Double cleanse in the evening if you've worn make-up, a SPF product or have been exercising. The first cleanse is to remove makeup, dirt and grime and the second to clean the skin. Apply a small amount of Africology Hydrating Cleansing Lotion to damp skin (applying cleanser to dry skin can result in sensitivity), gently smooth over with fingertips to loosen makeup and rinse with warm water or reusable cleansing pads. Apply Africology Purifying Cleansing Gel, massage gently with fingertips and rinse with warm water. Double cleansing allows subsequent products to be better absorbed and work more effectively.
