Nowadays we've got skin care products such toners, micellar water, exfoliating creams, serums, face wash, etc... that come in tubes or bottles. Back then there was less variation, and of course it was far more simple. It was common to use bar soap usually an all purpose one, steam your face with hot water, and use the special product, cold cream. Cold cream comes in a fairly large pot, very vintage style, not like today's products that come in tubes/bottles. It is used to cleanse and moisturize.
I know I'm stating the obvious *insert Nicholas Cage meme here, "You don't say?"*

Unlike most people who use tons of paraffin based creams and horrid soaps on their face, I don't have bad skin. I have only ever used water on my face. It is very sensitive to chemicals. If I wear make-up I use coconut oil to remove it before washing my face with water.
You do not need all these chemicals. Some people have skin conditions and some medications are required to ease the suffering and discomfort, but normal people: you're literally throwing your money away for some placebo and a sense of inclusion or elitism.1
