Sensitive skin cleanser contains soothing sea whip and licorice.
To keep your skin strong and resilient, you must prevent the break down or removal of your skin's lipid barrier (as happens when you use regular cleansers). Unfortunately general/regular cleansers are mostly detergent based. Acne cleansers mostly consist of exceptionally harsh detergents and astringents. Neither of these types of detergent cleansers may be used on sensitive skin.
This sensitive skin cleanser contains soothing sea whip and licorice. It uses gentle yucca and glycerin cleansing agents.
The plant based Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser is gentle yet thorough. When used as directed, it will help lift dirt and debris from the skin without stripping your skin's all-important lipid barrier (aka your natural moisturizer (also called 'oil')).
Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser will also gently remove makeup (see 'How to Use').

Apply about the size of US 25c coin to dry skin each P.M.Wet fingers, move over skin in gentle circular motions. It does not foam or have any of the tricks associated with all commercial detergent cleansers out there.
After about 15 - 30 seconds it will feel less 'fluid' on your skin.Add a little more water to fingers. Repeat these steps over 1 - 2 minutes until the cleanser has been significantly lifted by the small additions of water over a 1 to 2 minute period. You will know you have reached this point when you get the distinct tactile feeling of the skin of your fingers on the skin of your face - meaning there is no cleanser product separating them.
Remove all residue of the sensitive cleanser by splashing the face with cool water.
Your skin will feel soft, moist, and clean. There will be no unnatural 'squeaky-clean' feeling nor a sense of dryness on the vast majority of skin types. Pat the skin dry with a clean soft towel and marvel at the great feeling. It is important not to over cleanse the skin - only once a day (in the PM) is all your skin needs - unless you are a teenage type 4 acne sufferer who needs to cleanse twice per day - but the vast majority of people will just unbalance their skin by cleansing more than once per day.
To remove makeup like foundation, use more cleanser - you will have to try different amounts based on the type and quantity of makeup you apply to your face.
To remove eye makeup, apply cleanser to some cotton and wipe over eye area. Repeat if needed depending on the type and quantity of eye make up you applied. Do not rub harshly - just use a bit more cleanser.
Be gentle with your skin - it does not deserve harsh treatment - after all you put the makeup on the skin - it's not your skin's fault - so be gentle with it!
