first i get a washcloth handy
and soak it with warm water
then i pour a bit of the cleanser into my palms, and then rub it all over my face...
like pretend soap :P
if it doesn't irritate my eyes, then i rub it all over my lids and my lashes too
then i take the washcloth and wash off all the cleanser with it...
rub, massage and all that....
then i follow with pure rosewater on a cotton pad to remove residue
especially from around my eyes.
i usually need cream cleanser during the horrible days of jan/february
i try to stretch my use of: foaming cleansing cloths..
my favourite is in Canada - the Shopper's Drug Mart "LIFE Brand" foaming cleansing cloths - they don't burn/irritate my eyes, they're not super foamy - so not so much soap - therefore doesn't dry out my skin as much as the others... and it removes all my eye make-up..... i think the LIFE Brand foaming cloths are better than Dove or Olay etc... but if those ever disappear, i'll go w/ Dove Sensitive foaming cleansing cloths.
hope this has been helpful
