Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Anua is a K-Beauty brand that has a wonderful double cleansing system that features the Anua Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil and the ANUA Heartleaf Quercetinol Pore Deep Cleansing Foam. They can be used individually or together for a deeper and more effective cleansing, and the 2-step system helps to remove sebaceous filaments, blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. While this is an excellent system for skin prone to breakouts, it is gentle enough of all types of skin. I find it effective and non-stripping for my normal/combination skin. I am not prone to breakouts, but I do like to remove the sebaceous filaments the do form on my nose.

Double Cleansing Instructions:

Step 1. Apply cleansing oil on a dry nose. With a non-comedogenic formula that is safe to use for acne-prone and sensitive skin, ANUA’s Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil gently removes impurities from the skin. 

Step 2. Use circular motions to cleanse your pores. Made with heartleaf extract, this cleansing oil gently removes blackheads, makeup and sebum without any pore clogging. It provides a refreshing finish through an emulsification process that dissolves sebum by mixing water and oil.

Step 3. Emulsify with water. In a circular motion, blend the water with the cleansing oil until it becomes one.

Step 4. Follow up with a water-based cleanser.

Anua Heartleaf Pore Control Cleansing Oil is a gentle cleansing oil that emulsifies when water is introduced. Simply apply the oil to dry skin and massage it for a couple of minutes and then add warm water to emulsify the oil. Then rinse the skin with warm water and use the ANUA Heartleaf Quercetinol Pore Deep Cleansing Foam for your second cleansing.
