The Erno Laszlo Cleansing Ritual

Is there a right or a wrong way to cleanse your skin? According to Erno Laszlo, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to cleansing. With it being the first part of any grooming routine, it’s good to recognise the importance of this step.

A Bit About Erno Laszlo…

Founded in 1927, Dr Erno Laszlo brought his bespoke skincare philosophy to New York. Whilst in New York, his approach began to take the world by storm, quickly becoming the go-to skincare expert for many well-know Hollywood celebrities. It’s impressive for a brand to survive the ages, and today Erno Laszlo is equally as popular. Still situated in New York, The Institute of Erno Laszlo create and provide skincare solutions for people across the globe. They sit between science and style, combining scientific innovation with luxurious feeling products to bring you skincare that works, and feels great while doing so.

What is Erno Laszlo’s Cleansing Ritual?

The Cleansing Ritual from Erno Laszlo is a way of creating a bespoke routine that specifically suits your skins concerns. You simply combine a cleansing oil, with a cleansing bar, to create a 2 step cleansing routine that you can customise to suit your skin.

Why use a Cleansing Oil?

A cleansing oil helps to soothe and soften soften the skin. It helps to break up any product build up, oil and dirt, that may have been sitting on the skin through the day or overnight. As it’s an oil, it doesn’t strip your skin of any of it’s natural properties.

Why use a Cleansing Bar?

The Cleansing Bar is packed full of antioxidants and botanicals, helping to give your skin an extra boost of nourishment. Cleansing Bars naturally combat oil, helping to breakdown any bacteria on the skin. If you’re looking for a clear complexion, this is a must.

Our Final Thoughts

Here at Mankind, we’re always looking to keep our skincare routines as simple as possible. However there are times when it’s really worth spending that extra 60 seconds. The Erno Laszlo Cleansing Ritual is one of those times. Combining a cleansing oil with a cleansing bar is a technique that will leave your skin super clean, and also give your complexion the perfect glow.

What’s better yet – is that you can buy the Cleansing Ritual in a trial pack, that gives you smaller versions of both the oil and bar. It’s the perfect way to try it out and figuring out what works best for you. Here’s some of our favourites:
