Clarins Water Comfort One Step Cleanser: quick, effective and non-drying

Clarins Water Comfort One Step cleanser with peach essential water (or Eau de Confort Nettoyante Express) has become a permanent member of my beauty routine. In the past, I would use a toner after my foaming cleanser to remove remaining bits of makeup and dirt. The problem was that most toners left my skin feeling stripped and dry.

As the weather gets warmer and I have begun wearing sunscreen foundation (Anthelios SPF 50 tinted sunscreen and Shiseido sunscreen stick foundation), I want to be able to remove all dirt, sunscreen and makeup without making my skin feel dry and tight. I began using Clarins Water Comfort One Step cleanser with peach essential water after my foaming cleanser and I discovered does a marvellous job removing all dirt and makeup but still leaving my skin feeling soft and moist. I’ve even forgotten to apply moisturiser many times after using this toner!

The best way to use the Clarins Water Comfort One Step cleanser is to soak a large cotton pad (I use Shiseido Facial Cotton) and gently wipe your face and neck after you cleanse with a milky, gel or foam cleanser.

If you’re very lazy and tired, you can just use just this one-step cleanser, but you’ll need several cotton pads before your makeup is all gone.

The Clarins Water Comfort One Step cleanser with peach essential water sells for $35 in the US and 22.50 EUR in Europe. It claims to be for normal to dry skin but it works for my combination/oily skin.  Clarins sells another one step cleanser purportedly for combination or oily skin and it’s called Water Purify One-Step Cleanser with Mint Essential Water, but the peppermint extract may irritate your skin).
