Being no stranger to LALUN NATURALS, I was looking forward to trying Maggie Mahboubian’s Lalun Naturals SEASONAL SKINCARE called Winter Rose.
Maggie says that like plants we are all affected by our seasons as our skin tries to adjust when we are exposed to temperature changes, humidity and sunlight.
So with a specific purpose in mind, she (Maggie) created Lalun Naturals Seasonal Skincare to help our skin recalibrate (reform) itself every season.
When I received Lalun Naturals Seasonal Skincare travel sizes of the Winter Rose Toner, Winter Rose Cleanser as well as Winter Rose Moisturiser, I followed Maggie Mahboubian’s Water-Free Oil Cleansing tips below:
“Before retiring at night, pump some oil onto two cotton pads (or the corners of a clean washcloth) that have been sprayed with toner. The toner helps “activate” the oil so the cotton won’t stick to your skin and dirt/makeup/dead skin cells are loosened.
Gently press and roll the cotton pads/over the entire face and eyes, not forgetting the neck. If you have eye makeup on you will have to work a little harder to remove it and if a little gets in your eyes, it’s ok, it won’t hurt.
Go to bed. Do not use creams or night creams as they can block the pores that are working so hard to eliminate toxins through respiration at night.
In the morning spray toner onto face. Run a clean wash cloth under hot (not scalding) water. Always use a freshly laundered washcloth because used washcloths are breeding grounds for bacteria due to the moist environment which allows microorganisms from sloughed off skin cells to proliferate (YUCK!). Wring out and place on face. Repeat three times so pores can open.
Scoop out some moisturizer using spatula (this reduces the introduction of bacteria), distribute onto fingertips, then pat, pat, pat all over your face, neck and decoletee.
For women, I recommend doing a light circular breast massage with the cleansing/body oil at this time. It helps increase circulation throughout breast tissue.
Allow moisturizer to settle in before applying makeup. I usually get dressed at this time.
Cleansing with oil can be done all year and is beneficial for all skin types, especially oily! It is probably the single most important step towards maintaining lifelong healthy skin.”
Now I know what you’re thinking. CLEANSING THE SKIN WITH ONLY ESSENTIAL OILS; pull the other leg.
Well, I’m here to assure you it really works; whether you wear make-up or not.
As you, I use to think that by washing my face with water and soap/liquid soap, my skin would be squeaky clean.
However, this is what Maggie Mahboubian has to say:
“Water, though hydrating when taken internally, is actually drying to the skin, especially when soap is used. Soap and water strip the skin of it’s natural protective oils (sebum) and not only dry out the skin, but lead to oily breakouts, because the skin compensates for dryness by creating more oil.
Soap and water also change the pH of the skin, oddly enough creating a favorable environment for bacterial growth. This increased production of oil combined with bacteria can result in acne. The only way to break the cycle is to “fight like with like”. Oils dissolve dirt and makeup without disrupting the sebum and pH balance established by the skin.”
It’s been four months since trying Lalun Naturals Winter Rose Seasonal Skincare and I will not go into specifics why the lengthy delay.
What I can say is that after using my Winter Rose “Trilogy”, my face was incredibly soft and well hydrated. The Winter Rose Toner and Winter Rose Cleanser has a mild honey rose scent, while the Winter Rose Moisturiser was more stronger in that same scent but not overpowering.
WINTER ROSE Cleanser can be used as an after shower body oil while your skin is still moist.
Re-Useable Organic Cotton Flannel Pads can be purchased from Maggie.
No matter what part of the world you live in or its season, there is a Lalun Naturals Seasonal Skincare for everyone.
