When Vogue UK calls something "probably the best cleanser in the world," and Kate Hudson names it a desert island essential, you listen up. And then get fed up when you realise that the only way to get it is a $3,800 return trip to London. Or New York. Hmmmph. And then your heart starts to beat a little faster, your palms start to get a little clammy and before you know it, you're standing on your chair doing a little happy dance when you hear that it has Finally Arrived in Australia and will be Available Whenever You Need. Breathe. Breathe. I'm talking about Eve Lom Cleanser (from $68) for those not yet in the know. Created by Czechoslovakian Eve back in 1986, the philosophy of the brand was to simplify skincare. Eve believes that less is more. That's why you'll only need a 10 cent piece of this cleanser ONCE a day and you won't need to moisturise after unless your skin is really, really dry. Say what? Yep, this product does it all, cleanses, removes makeup, tones and moisturises. It's life changing. You do it at night and it comes with muslin cloths that you run under hot water and then hold about half an inch from your face to create a mini facial effect. Do that a couple of times then rinse with the cold muslin cloth. Follow with eye cream, then in the morning you moisturise but there's NO NEED TO CLEANSE. Weird but totally wonderful and life-changing. Gwyneth Paltrow agrees. Ooh.
Eve Lom Cleanser will be available exclusively at Mecca Cosmetica from Monday.
