Here's a tower shot of some cleansing balms I have been using... I have tried some cleansing balms in the past that either broke me out or I didn't like, these are some I tried and liked : @banilacousa Clean it zero cleansing balm BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original
- ✨ Fragrance free ✨Removes makeup, sunscreen and other non-waterproof makeup ✨Glides easily and feels so lightweight ✨ Emulsifies so well and rinses off completely ✨ Doesn't leave a greasy film and doesn't sting/blur eyes @elemis Pro collagen cleansing balmELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
- ✨ Has strong fragrance ✨Removes makeup, sunscreen and other non-waterproof makeup ✨Glides easily and feels so lightweight ✨ Emulsifies so well and rinses off completely ✨ Doesn't leave a greasy film and doesn't sting/blur eyes @lxmiofficial Pure nilotica oil LXMI - Pure Nilotica Melt Nourishing Balm-to-Oil
( Even though this isn't sold as a cleansing balm I really like how it removes makeup and also doesn't clog pores) ✨Fragrance free ✨Texture is thick, melts into oil ✨Removes makeup and sunscreen ✨ Doesn't emulsify ✨Leaves a greasy film on skin The cleansing balms I didn't like: @drunkelephant - Slaai makeup melting butter cleanserDRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser
(This has marula oil and surprisingly it broke me out.I out this to test in different scenarios but every time I used it it gave me small breakouts, so is a no for me) @ponds cold cream makeup removerPOND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser
( This is thick cold cream that is packaged and marketed to remove makeup and dirt but isn't the best experience. It's too occlusive and doesn't glide on skin easily. It also doesn't emulsify at all and leaves that crazy thick film on skin when rinsed with water. Well, it doesn't even rinse off to start with) @banilacousa Clean it Zero is my favorite so far. Works the best for Oily/Acne prone skin. I bought this value size tub on Amazon for 23$ which is truly a bang for the buck.

So Do All Cleansing Balms Suck?
Cause this one sure did. I wear very waterproof mascara L'ORÉAL - Unlimited Length and Lift Waterproof Mascara which I have found to be better than any high end brand. So, I really need to work hard to get my face actually clean. I've been double cleansing with oil cleanser for many years. I use BURT’S BEES - Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils and it actually does a great job I'm just not really a coconut oil fan. So when I saw all the hype about cleansing Balms I knew I had to try. All this talk of it dissolving your makeup sounded amazing and I was so sold. k beauty is my fav and this Zero cleansing Balm seemed like an easy and popular choice. But unfortunately it does not get my makeup off, it also gave me super cloudy eyes. Like super cloudy, it literally blinds me when I use it. I find even after using a bamboo wipe to try to get the extra off, it's not dissolved enough to get it to glide off. I wonder if I'm not using it right, because it's that bad.

NEW IN: my skin care ritual just got fancy
ULTA had ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Perfect Partners on sale and I just had to guys. I love Elemis products and have been dying to try these two products. I love cleansing balms. They are the best thing to remove waterproof makeup without stinging and irritating your eyes. Yes, micellar water works as well but I usually use it after to make sure everything is off . This cleansing balm is so luxurious and oh my word the smell is absolutely divine. The balm is based with rose and mimosa waxes and are infused with elderberry, starflower and optimega oils and supercharged with anti-aging algae, padina pavonica— a Mediterranean algae with proven outstanding anti-aging benefits. Some of my favorites are: CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (works well but they test on animals) BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original Then I met you - Living Cleansing Balm After cleansing, I follow up with my new favorite retinol alternative ingredient, Baluchiol in ACURE - Radically Rejuvenating Dual Phase Bakuchiol Serum . I use this twice a day before moisturizing for that extra bit of moisture and protection from free radicals. I have to be honest, I have not tried the cream. I’m sure it is divine but I’m currently half way through two creams and it seemed wasteful to open this one... and I wouldn’t really be giving it a good test run if I’m still using the others right!? I will update in a later post. What other cleansing balm should I try? Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful **Elemis, Banila Co, Then I met you are all 🐰cruelty free.

rate my routine
my skin is very very dry and acne prone AM: i start with the Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser this was recommended by my derm next i go in with the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 on damp skin i wait about 30 seconds and follow up with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% this has helped my acne so much, since i have dry skin i follow up with a heavy moisturizer like the CeraVe - Healing Ointment this is the only thing heavy enough for my dry skin, i then finish with the Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 i love this sunscreen PM: i start with POND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser as a first cleanse and makeup remover, for my second cleanse i go in with Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser this was recommended by my derm, next i exfoliate 3 times a week with The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution and i use the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 on damp skin to hydrate and follow with The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% next i use the Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer to hydrate and follow with CeraVe - Healing Ointment to lock everything in how do you like my routine, anything i should change? any advice?

UNPOPULAR OPINON: PONDS COLD CREAM CLEANSER
POND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser *fragrance free* has become one of my holy grail items for my sensitive / dry skin. I use it as part of my double cleanse even when I am not wearing makeup and it keeps my skin soft and moisturizer. Before using Ponds I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser to help with the appearance of my pores / blackheads. I really like this cleanser, it’s gentle and I find that my pores are noticeably smaller and my face feels really clear. I took one star off because I feel that it can be slightly drying, but following with the ponds cold cream leaves my skin soft, moisturized and poreless. You also can’t beat the price of Ponds!

My first retinol - Tretinoin routine
As part of the @cherie and Apostrophe Save My Skin, I got a consult and month of treatment from Apostrophe. My main skin concerns are beginning signs of aging and some dark spots/age spots (hyperpigmentation) that are beginning to appear. A couple of the dark areas on my face are quite pronounced. The Apostrophe process was super simple. Created my account online, answered some questions about my skin concerns, and uploaded some photos of my face and areas of concern, and chose my Dr. All of my information was reviewed by a Dermatologist who suggested a treatment plan to meet my goals. Less than 2 weeks later I had a box at my doorstep! The box from Apostrophe - Topical Formula included my prescription, a sheet detailing my treatment plan, a postcard, and some stickers. Cute. I was prescribed Tretinoin 0.025% + Niacinamide 4%. I’ve been using Niacinamide for about 2 months now, but this is my first prescription retinol experience. I was directed to apply every other night for 2 weeks, if no irritation, move to every night. In order to lessen the chance of irritation I was also directed to use a light moisturizer before and after, use sunscreen daily, avoid eye and mouth area, discontinue use of any acids, and use a moisturizing cleanser as well as a Vitamin C serum each morning. My retinol / Trentinoin daily routine Evening: If I have makeup on I cleanse using BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Nourishing or ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which I also use as a mask of my skin is super irritated. Apply pea size amount of Tretonin + Niacinamide cream over face and half that amount to neck Moisturize with THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer Apply BITE - Agave+ Nightime Duo to lips, generic castor oil to brows with a spoolie, and PETER THOMAS ROTH - Lashes to Die for Turbo Nighttime Eyelash Treatment lash serum to my lashes Morning: Cleanse using BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Nourishing or ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Apply SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum all over face and neck Use The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG under eyes Then rose hip oil on areas that feel especially dry or are peel Since it’s only been a couple weeks I will probably end up refining this routine, I’ve noticed dryness mostly around my mouth and nostrils. Highly recommend the Apostrophe process so far! 💙

Cleansers for Sensitive and Acneic Skin
Hi Cherie Friends, I just wanted to share my favorite AM and PM cleansing routine. Skin Background: I’m in my mid thirties and I have combination-to-dry, sensitive reactive and acne prone skin. I also have eczema... all around fun times. My main concerns are of course treating breakouts, maintain balance moisture level, and stop the aging clock as much as possible. I mainly only use cruelty-free, Vegan when possible products— there’s no need for that nonsense with the myriad of technology that we have today. 🌙PM Cleansing routine: When I wear a full face of make up I like to triple cleanse. ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm I will massage a pea to some size of this baby all over my face. This is so gentle and really breakdown all my waterproof mascara and foundation. MakeUp Eraser - Holiday Set Then remove them with these babies. Did you know that one pad can replace up to 500 make up wipes? Which all end up in our ocean or the landfills. I usually repeat this step, depends on how I’m feeling. #Zenmed - Facial Cleansing Gel[products]#[FiveStars] Friends, if you have not heard of Zenmed and you have acne— you must try it! This is a gentle gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin and cleans so well. I just put a dime size cleanser on myMICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush with MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Delicate Sensitive Skin Antimicrobial Brush Head My skin feels so soft and clean after 2 minutes of cleansing. The brush tells you when you’re finished I also use the cleansing brush with MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Replacement Serum Infusion Head to massage in the serums. On Non-make up days: I still use my MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush & MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Delicate Sensitive Skin Antimicrobial Brush Head With a dollop of COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser I also really love how gentle this cleanser is and the added BHA helps to gentility exfoliate any excess dead skin cells and sebum. ☀️ AM Cleansing Routine: I hate waking up guys... I hate it so much. So I pretty much keep it really simple. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I’ve been loving this gentle cleanser. It smells amazing and super super gentle and pack enough punch to just remove the gunk out of my eyes and wake me up. I believe you can also use this to remove make up but I haven’t tried it yet. I’m actually running out of cleansers, please let me know your favorites below! 🐰cruelty free Thank you! Be Kind, Stay Beautiful

Broken Barrier/Irritated skin?Use this overnight
If you have HORMONAL/cystic acne and it bleeds, or you have broken skin barrier or irritated skin , GET THIS BALM TO OIL!!! 😍 ✨I have Oily/combination skin still I use it and it doesn't clog my pores. It's non-comedogenic and non inflammatory. My acne/blemishes calm and the skin around them heal itself when I use it overnight!!! ✨Take my word - This will heal your skin barrier in just one night and your skin will look plumper and brighter the next morning!!! ✨This interesting Nilotica balm to oil from @lxmiofficial LXMI - Pure Nilotica Melt Nourishing Balm-to-Oil is 100% organic, cold-pressed Nilotica. (which is a rare relative of shea. It is underutilized in the cosmetic market despite its superiority, due to sourcing challenges and costs. Nilotica Reserve has sky-high essential fatty acids, enhanced vitamin and nutrient potency, and a luxurious texture.) That’s the only ingredient in this luxuriously rich balm-to-oil. This is a very unique product from @lxmiofficial with that one superfood ingredient which claims to do a lot. The buttery formula melts instantly upon application, delivering fatty acids, allantoin, and vitamin A to hydrate, brighten, and protect skin—even reversing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use it as an ultra-rich overnight mask, as a healing salve for sunburns or scars, or during the day as needed. I used it a couple of times and it got rid of my dry patches certainly along with that gave me a super soft skin. It's great for colder months as it will nourish skin and lock in moisture for it look plump and hydrated. I use this when my hormonal acne flares up and this oil helps in healing my skin. Also, whenever I get purging for products or Retinoids. I consider this as my skin savior when I have blemishes and broken barrier. ❤️😍

drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin!  DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie

Skincare 101: Double-Cleansing
Bar soaps and scrubs have been phased out of popularity, replaced with cleansers that use gentler sulfates than potentially-problematic SLS/SLES and double-cleansing has seen a rise. Grime, layers of sunscreen, heavy makeup... I recommend double-cleansing if you apply more than one layer of sunscreen or wear makeup, it’s helped so much with my own congestion/blackheads! Wash twice with a water-based cleanser if you prefer to be utilitarian, or try a micellar water if you don’t like oil textures. • 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲: For me, traditional double-cleansing is the way to go. Oil-based cleansers easily break down stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara and I’m careful to avoid sensitizing essential oils. My top pick for quality to quantity to cost? THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm . $10 for 150mL of a sensitive skin-friendly balm is hard to beat! Another good budget option is The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser , $7.90 for 50mL or $19.90 for 150mL. Its thick texture takes a bit more work to emulsify and rinse away, but gets the job done. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is a great balm that I love for its easy emulsification and quick rinse, though it’s a bit more pricy- $34 for 110g. Harder to swallow the cost when you rinse it after just a minute of it on your skin, but it emulsifies so well and rinses clean easily. HOLI FROG - Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash is also kinda pricy, $42 for 74mL. It is hard to emulsify, but leaves my skin as soft as if I had moisturized after rinsing, making it luscious but hard to justify. • 𝗦𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝗖𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲: For my 2nd Cleanse, I reach for a water-based cleanser with a pH of 4-7 and hydrating humectants. I avoid essential oils and fragrance. My absolute favourite 2nd Cleanse is rPAULA'S CHOICE - RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser ($19 per 190mL, pH 6.2-7), a silky cream-to-foam that removes any 1st Cleanse residue without stripping skin. Another gentle and effective cleanser is the HOLI FROG - Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash ($36 per 150mL, pH 5.5). Both are great for any skin type, esp. drier skin! Oily/combo skin types will enjoy the deep-cleansing, strongly lathering gels of rCeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin ($11 per 355mL, pH 5.5) and #Drunk Elephant - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser[products]#[FourStars] ($32 per 150mL, pH 5.5). I wouldn’t use them more than once per day since they can leave skin feeling tight if overused. How To Use A Balm Cleanser: 1. Dispense balm onto dry, clean palms. 2. Massage balm onto dry, uncleansed skin, for as long as you like. I wouldn’t go over a minute since you’ll be massaging your skin more in a sec... 3. Wet hands. 4. Emulsify the product on your face using a small amount of water, massaging until it is almost like a lather. 5. Rinse face. 6. Repeat steps 4 + 5 until your face feels clean and soft, with no visible milkiness/lather.

Buttery soft first cleanse
Buttery soft first cleanse
SKIN TYPE: acne prone, combination, dehydrated PRODUCT: Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm This mint green balm packs a punch against all makeup! The balm melts nearly instantly on contact, cutting through SPF, foundation, and waterproof makeup gently but effectively. It is an excellent first cleanse and has quickly joined in my rotation of cleansers. For anyone who has super sensitive skin, it’s good to note that it has added fragrant essential oils (which result in a scent reminiscent of limes mixed with candied ginger) but I haven’t broken out so far while using it. At $34 for 3.4 oz or $22 for 1.7 oz, it’s not the most affordable oil based cleanser, but I definitely recommend giving this cleansing balm a shot!

NEOGENLAB - Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam When I arrived back in CA, I had a NATURE REPUBLIC - Collagen Dream Vitamin C Capsule Foam Cleanser that was still lying around but it was drying my face out like crazy! As such, I ended up purchasing this Neogen cleanser since it’s advertised for sensitive, dry skin that’s prone to redness. Well, I don’t have dry skin but my face was certainly suffering from it since the other product had stripped it all out. I would say that this product is just OK. It contains cica (also known as centella asiatica) which is very “in” right now due to its ability to soothe and repair irritated skin. I do like that the cleanser is very gentle and my skin doesn’t feel tight at all after using it. But beyond that, it’s hard for me to say what else it’s doing. It could be working and I just don’t even realize it! (You don’t know what you have until you don’t have it I guess 😩) Despite it being labeled as a foam cleanser, it hardly lathers up at all. In the evenings, I use it as a second step after oil cleansing with my BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original which is nice since it does help to clear up the oily feeling. I don’t regret buying this product since, if anything, it hasn’t worsened my skin condition, which is always good, but I think I would like to try something new in the future!

Hydrating cleanser 💦🥇
The first hydrating type cleanser I’ve ever used... On my (more) younger days I always used to use cleansers that strip my skin leaving me feeling squeaky clean because I had oily skin and thought that’s what I needed... Moving from the Caribbean to the US my skin type change from oily to a more combination/dry type. I experienced dry spots for the first time: my cheeks would look red and I could see the flaky, scaly patches on them. Watching skincare based YouTube channels (as Beauty Within, skincarebyhyram, James Welsh.... and more) I stumble upon the brand Krave Beauty, and after hearing all the good reviews decided to try a couple of their products. This is the first tube of the Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I finished (already have two back ups), so is pretty clear I love it... it cleans my skin but hydrates it at the same time, which sounds amazing now that I have a more dry skin. My boyfriend who suffers from rosacea also loves it, it really helps him soothe his flare ups. I recommend this cleanser for any skin type to be honest, anyone would benefit from the skin barrier friendly ingredients in it. It has a gooey/gel type of consistency, and you can actually see the (I guess) hemp particles in it. It’s really a 5/5 ⭐️ for me.

FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm I was never a big fan of cleansing balms until I tried this- I found them waxy and felt that they left a residue that I could never get rid of, so I hadn't really double cleansed before I met Green Clean. Farmacy's Green Clean is what I would say is their signature product. I mean check out that texture - it's actually GREEN! As a brand, Farmacy focuses on clean beauty, so the whole green theme fits. This also smells lovely and green - it reminds me of being outside in the woods! It contains sunflower oil, lime, bergamont and ginger so those lend it a pleasant scent. Packed in a recyclable jar, Green Clean is a balm meant to cleanse off all of your makeup- including eye makeup- and that it does. It even manages not to irritate my sensitive eyes! Let’s talk texture- It stays solid in the jar but once you put it on your skin, it lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry. All without the waxy residue that turned me off from cleansing balms in the first place! I still like to use another cleanser after the green clean, but you don't need to, since it really washes clean. As I am in my late 30s with dry skin, I need to avoid cleansers that strip the skin, so this is perfect if you’re on the dry side. I’m not sure it would be as good for oily skin, but as it rinses clean I don’t think it would clog pores or cause breakouts. I give Green Clean 5/5 stars because this really IS an excellent cleanser. It runs $34 for a 3.4 oz size, which to be honest, is a little expensive. A 3.4 ounce jar lasts me around 3 months, so its still a good value, and on occasion Farmacy sells value sizes which makes it cheaper per ounce. Definitely the best balm available right now!

THIS HELPED ME rebalance my oily skin 💜💖
THIS HELPED ME rebalance my oily skin 💜💖
People have very mixed opinions about Glow Recipe, most of the negative opinions thinking it is just a cutesy brand and for a while I agreed until i really started diving into clean skin care and good ingredients, I finally decided to try it out but I wanted to try both the cleanser AND the moisturizer because I don't believe any brand is defined by 1 or even 2 products. THESE PRODUCTS ARE FOR PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN THAT WANT BALANCED SKIN, this won't make you 100% oil-free and matte, if you prefer that I'm sorry but I don't think you will like these. The Review ‼ My skin is beyond oily, I'd get so embarrassed walking around especially during the summer, I have been testing so many different things for around 2 years and this completely changed my skin, my skin is now so soft it looks smooth (even with my minor acne scars and pores, and I no longer get oily throughout the day, I can't help but touch my skin because I just feel so good about it, I have a normal healthy glow and when I touch my face it has the perfect amount of hydration. I also don't have severe acne though I do have some acne scars and and I usually get between 1-4 pimples most of the time and this has helped calm both of that down, I haven't gotten any more pimples (except 1 recently) which wasn't nearly as big as the others, the cleanser really helped with that and my bumpy textured skin the cleanser is my new holy grail. Would I Recommend ❓ Absolutely, if you are into clean skin care, and want to rebalance your skin or even if you have normal skin I'd definitely buy this combo! It seems expensive but honestly the smaller size is enough. I gave the cleanser 5 stars because it cleans my skin so well I don't even feel like I need a toner but it doesnt strip my skin, I feel like every skin type could use this cleanser and the small $10 bottle will last a long time, 1 pump covers your whole face 💜 I gave the moisturizer 4 stars because even though I love the amount of hydration it gives me without the oiliness it seems to be going by a little faster than the cleanser but that could also be because I do 1 pump but 1 pump is too much honestly, it's a small learning curve but very worth it 💖 How I use the moisturizer❗I try to pour a little less than 1 pump into my hand and I dip a finger in the product and put that on 1 check then I dipped my finger again and put it on the other cheek, and I dip my finger again to put it on my forehead and whatever is left I just put on any spot I missed like my nose or if i need a little more on my cheeks. $10 for small cleanser $21 for small moisturizer, or you can get the make your own kit for $29, you will get the small sized moisturizer and can get a sample sized cleanser, you can also choose another 2 products if there are other things you want to try. (4 piece kit 1 small size 3 sample size) If you don't have the money to get both, the cleanser is a good investment because for the price of a normal drugstore cleanser it lasts.

One of the best way to us spinach 🥰
this product helps me cleanse my face without irritating it and especially by moisturizing it. I have very dry skin and the cleanser helps my skin absorb the vitamins. I no longer feel my face dry after using it, and I have a shiny face. I just add a cream to close the pores. green tea eliminates impurities and purifies the skin. it also closes the pores after cleaning it gives a more refreshing and youthful effect. spinach, it is an anti-acne it cleans toxins it protects the epidermis and reduces inflammation.so if you have redness you can boil water and put spinach turn into paste and put on the face! that's wonderful it also helps prevent aging of the skin it also helps for hair loss vitamins A and C they help produce the oil necessary to strengthen them
