I’ve been implementing this cleanser duo for the last month almost to the exact day. Using the pre-cleanse oil first really helps with getting off all the day’s dirt and grime as well as leftover sun protection. After the oil pre-cleanse, you must use the chamomile cleanser to remove the excess oil; it makes you feel squeaky clean.
I’ve got combination, mainly oily skin. It hasn’t irritated it nor caused any breakouts. I also have my husband and small son use it. A tiny bit goes a long way and it lathers beautifully! We also use it in the shower on our chest and arms.
The bottles are sleek and great for reuse in the amber glass. I am learning about the dangers and toxicity of PUFAs so this is an extremely unique line of beauty products that you cannot find anywhere unless their idea is along the same lines of thinking.
The customer service is also exceptional and so well delivered! Thank you so much Stephanie and co. for sharing your knowledge and care of skincare that nourishes and cleans without the adverse effects of toxic fillers and unnecessary stabilizers that ultimately harm the skin in the long run. You have an indefinite customer in this product and I will pass on your brand to everyone I know as well as the awareness.
So my skin is pretty finicky. I either break out or get super dry and dull from 99% of cleansers on the market. Even oil cleansing. I was super hesitant to try these. But for some bizarre reason this duo makes my skin look and feel phenomenal. At first I had some breakouts but that's because I only did the pre-cleanse. Didn't do the cleansing gel. Then when I combined these two in my regimen it did absolute wonders for my skin. I also use the vitamin C serum, the marshmallow malva toner, and the tallow balm. My skin has never been this hydrated or clear. Also huge plus factor..every single time I use my kossma products my skin feels silky smooth. And not just for a few minutes afterwards but for the rest of the day. I probably should state the only product I use on my skin that isn't kossma is my squalane oil because I already had it on hand. Once I'm out I will be purchasing the kossma one.
So far I am LOVING this line!!!!! My skin is thanking me. The pre cleanse weirded me out at first and I thought it would make matters worse, WRONG. I should also clarify I have sensitive skin, and have had major acne issues for ages. This is the first time I used any oils on my face and reacted so well!!
My review is from the perspective of someone with combination skin.
The pre oil cleanse works very well with a cotton round to get the initial makeup or the day’s dirt/sebum off. It surprises me how much comes off onto the cotton
- even without wearing makeup!
The chamomile cleanser is pretty concentrated, I need only about 1/4 pump to have plenty of scrubbing coverage and lather. It bubbles nicely and makes my skin feel very clean after rinsing. I tend to dry out if I don’t immediately follow with toner and moisturizer.
Overall I really enjoy these products, but I haven’t noticed a decrease in blemishes. I suspect it’s related to trying to get my cortisol/hormone function under control. I try to keep my PUFA intake very low, and have shifted my diet in the last 1 1/2 months. Hoping my body stabilizes soon.
The skincare regimen by Kossma really does feel soothing and moisturizer products soak in well, though!
Amazing.. already notice a huge difference in my skin. So soft!
