Shangpree S-Energy Cleansing Gel – 150mL


In stock


Unlike most first-step cleansers (oils), this one from Seoul’s top spa, is in fact a gentle gel.
It effectively breaks down even stubborn waterproof makeup and helps keep the pores clear.
The gel is soothing to massage into the skin, especially thanks to its gentle herbal scent.
This is a great first-cleanser choice for both sensitive and breakout-prone skin, because even though it is oil-based, it is non-comedogenic.
If you just want to dip your toes into the double-cleansing pool, this is a great choice for those new to the practice.


Your first cleansing step just evolved from an oily, balm like texture to a gentle sweet smelling gel. All Shangpree products hail from a top rated spa in Korea that conducts research and development for years before releasing any product in the market. The S-Energy cleansing gel contains anti-inflammatory properties making it appropriate even for the most sensitive and acne prone skin types. It effectively removes impurities and waterproof makeup off your face leaving pores fresh and clear.

First Step: Oil Cleanser. At the end of the day, when you want to take off all the makeup, sunscreen, excess sebum, dust, bacteria, etc., an oil cleanser does a very good job in doing it. The logic lies in the cohesive nature of oil based impurities. It may sound counter intuitive but it?s simple to understand, imagine how oil separates from water in a glass containing both. In line with the same theory oil attracts oil and water attracts water. All the oil-based impurities get attached to the oil magnets in the cleanser while getting detached from the skin surface/pores. It is for the very same reason we use baby oil/or any oil to take off eye-makeup.

Start off without adding water, using dry hands over dry face. Adding water reduces the efficacy of an oil cleanser. After gently massaging for a while when you?ve melted some of that stubborn makeup you can add water to emulsify.

Second step: Foam or your water-based cleanser. Now it?s the turn of the left over impurities(water-based) to get washed away. All of the water soluble dirt and grime get dissolved with the water-based cleanser giving you your true cleanse.

All that said it is important that we are not too harsh and don?t disturb the skin balance at either step. Many skin troubles start either when we do too much or too little at the cleaning step, for example, when using harsh face washes or soaps. The alkaline soap bars and strong cleansers have a pH > 7 that irritates the skin-barrier and may deteriorate it over time. Healthy skin, naturally, has a pH around 5~6 and is slightly acidic.

So, the rule of thumb is to look for an oil-based cleanser that is free or mineral oils and other irritable and comedogenic ingredients and a low pH, sulfate-free water-based cleanser that is gentle enough to cleanse and hydrate at the same time.
