The newly introduced Pendulum Potion cleansing oil is the first product in May Lindstrom’s line that did not completely shake up my beauty routine.
That does not mean I don’t love it, I do. But after pampering my face with clays and spices, mud puddings and a face balm that is blue, rather than an adventure, a simple cleansing oil feels very natural and basic.
I wrote about oil cleansing in the summer and the method suggested for Pendulum Potion is pretty much the same.
After shaking bottle, distribute 4-6 pumps of oil into palms and massage onto dry face and neck. Wet your hands with warm water and continue massaging for a minute or two. You will feel your skin warming up and softening.
Wet a clean face towel with hot tap water, wring extra water out and cover your face and neck with the towel for a mini steam. Hold for a moment, then wipe your face gently with the damp towel.
Rinse the towel again with hot water, wring, hold on face, wipe and repeat for a couple of times until skin is soft and cleansed. Follow with toner and moisturizer if you like.
If I am wearing makeup, I like to do the first wiping with a cotton pad, then add a little more oil and go through the steam ritual.
