I was chosen by influenster to be part of the Erno Laszlo #ThePowerOfTwo beauty campaign back in December. After completing the survey, I received the sensitive (pink) set. But these beauty products also come in different colors for different skin types. I was a little concerned about the cleansing oil because I do suffer from occasional acne. Since Erno Laszlo Sensitive Cleansing oil and Cleansing Bar are formulated to deeply clean the skin, I took a chance and used the oil on my face and neck once a day at first. A week later, I used the oil on my face twice a day before using the cleansing bar to wash my face, and I did not notice any change as far as acne was concerned.
When used together, these two products are powerful enough to remove your makeup, but gentle enough to help you keep your skin's natural oil and elasticity. The travel set that I received is big enough to last you months when used twice a day. The oil also comes in a bigger pump bottle that will last you even longer.

The bottom line
It was not easy for me to rub the cleansing bar directly on my face. So, I wet my right hand with water first while holding the cleansing bar, then used my hand in a circular motion to wash my face. The soap created a great lather. I used it twice to make sure that the oil was completely gone from my face. I pat dried my face before applying my moisturizer. I cannot get over how soft my skin felt after using both the oil and the cleansing bar. The oil is so light, it melted into my skin when I applied it. It also left a silky feeling on my skin. A few drops were all I needed. And the soap did an incredible job at removing the excess oil from the skin without drying it out. The deep, clean feeling was instantly noticeable after I rinsed my face with warm water. It is best to keep the soap in a clean, dry place because it gets dirty easily.
I did not expect these two products to work so well on my combination skin, but I am glad they did. If you have dry, sensitive skin, you should give this set a try. Your skin will love it, especially during the cold season.
