Is it a dupe? Battle of the Kale Cleansers!!

SomewhatSustainable
Sooooo everyone and their mother has a YTTP Superfood Cleanser review on here, so I’ll keep mine short. It’s expensive, it’s sustainable (they finally made the refill bottle permanent in their collection 😏) and it works. It leaves my skin feeling clean, not dry, and just all around healthy. Worth the money ($36 for an 8 oz bottle, which can last you awhile). 5/5⭐️ Now, the Pacifica Kale Detox cleanser has always been there for me, even before I had a skincare routine, or even knew that skincare could help my oily, acne prone, hormonal young adult skin. Back when $10 was a lot to spend on a face wash, back when I slept in my makeup-I know, I know! We all did stupid things when we were a kid!! Leave me alone! Anyway, this is a foaming gel cleanser, and it’s $10 for 5 oz. It claims that it is for oily and acne prone skin types, so it foams up quite a bit and a little goes a long way. I wouldn’t recommend this cleanser to anyone with even slightly dry skin, as it can be quite stripping and drying. I recently bought it about 8 months ago to see if it was a dupe for the YTTP Superfood Cleanser (which I loved but couldn’t justify spending a lot on skincare at the time) and I instantly noticed how drying it was. The fragrance is also slightly stronger, and smells more artificial as opposed to the natural “leafy greens” smell of the YTTP. However, with a soothing toner and hydrating mist, someone with skin like mine could make it work in my opinion. Sustainability: Nowhere near as sustainable as the YTTP, but the bottle is made from 50% recycled plastic. If that even counts. 4/5⭐️ For sentimental value. SUMMARY: Is it a similar product in theory? Yes. Is it a dupe? No. But, if you’re tight on cash, and really can’t dish out $36 on a cleanser, AND you have oily skin AND you have other hydrating products to put moisture back in to your skin after cleansing, this product could work for you. If you have the money for the YTTP cleanser, I would recommend that one because it isn’t stripping at all and they’re spot on with sustainability and ingredients. It is well worth the money, since according to dermatologists, cleansing is the most damaging part of our skincare routines.

My recent daytime routine for oily skin
Note** This picture doesn’t include my Netrogena sunscreen ** I always always wear it though!! I’ve gone through a ton of different products and a ton of different routines for daytime trying to combat my oily skin. This one is my most recent but it’s the one that has undoubtedly helped me the most!! Daytime ☀️ I wake up and I cleanse my face with the Youth to the People Kale+Green tea, spinach, & vitamins face wash. This cleans my face of all the nightly skincare products I use and leaves my face soft but not stripped. (This is very important! Do not use a wash that will strip your skins oils if you have oily skin, it will just work overtime to replace it 😩) I then spray my face with the Youth to the People Adaptogen soothe & hydrate mist. This gives my skin a boost of hydration but it also leaves my skin matte which is perfect! I really love this spray and I use this throughout the day as needed as well! My last step before ☀️screen, (because honestly your daytime routine should be simple) is I use the boscia charcoal gel moisturizer. I just did a review on this moisturizer and I’m not kidding when I say that this is literally my holy grail for my oily skin. It moisturizes extremely well but the charcoal and it absorbs any oil and it continues to do so throughout the day even under make up!! This is a very recent routine I’ve adapted and it’s working amazing right now!! I don’t even have to reapply powder throughout the day which is the best!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 If anything changes I will definitely make an update post! If you have oily to combination skin and you were looking for a routine that will help your face stay matte but still moisturize throughout the day definitely give this one a try!! 💧 boscia - Revitalizing Black Charcoal Hydration Gel YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

🌍Eco friendly skincare packaging = the future
Glass packaging in skincare really is the wave when it comes to sustainability! Glass jars reduce the quantity of plastic waste created by the beauty industry, and I’m for it. I love repurposing glass jars to store other items like jewelry, homemade creams and candle wax! Something Youth to the People does that I find amazing is they sell a large bottle that you can refill smaller bottles with. My mini is now a travel must for me, and instead of purchasing again and again I just refill it! 🍀🌴☘️ I also think it’s an amazing cleanser so it’s a win-win.

I LOVE testing minis of products before I commit to the full size. I was super interested in each of these cleansers and was able to compare and contrast them. Overall I think they’re all solid purchases, but YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser was the winner for me. I have acne prone skin, however my acne is extremely mild so I try not to use anything too harsh consistently on my skin. Since I don’t wear makeup everyday, this cleanser is perfect for me for both morning and nighttime use. I’ve read that some people think this cleanser is better as a second cleanse option which works too! I love how mild it is on my skin, without stripping it dry and also feeling super clean. Also recyclable bottles YES PLEASE!!! For second place I would say LANEIGE - Multi Deep-Clean Cleanser it literally left my face feeling squeaky clean which I sometimes like but didn’t feel it would benefit me for everyday use. I also loved the texture of this as it was a nice creamy texture. A close third place is FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser I’m a huge FAB fan and I think this cleanser is perfect for people with sensitive skin who are new to skincare. It’s a great introduction to taking care of your sensitive skin as it has no irritants or scents. It’s a good texture as well. Pair it with the FAB ultra repair cream and you’ll be loving your skin!

I’m a fan of YTTP products, and while I still like this cleanser, it’s not my favourite cleanser or product by them. I love the scent — it’s light and fresh. Smells just like the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I love the texture of this cleanser and how great of a job it did with cleansing my skin. With my first use I toned my skin following cleansing just to see if it got all my makeup off and it DID! There was no trace of any whatsoever. I found this very gentle as well. The only downside is that it left my skin feeling a little on the dryer side — this is why I gave it only 4 stars. When I use this I follow it with my normal serums and then apply the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream. To Use: I dampen my skin and apply a small amount onto my finger tips and lather it up and then apply it onto my face and massage it for approximately 1 minute. What I Love About It: + the fresh scent + how great of a job it does with cleansing my skin + very gentle; I haven’t noticed any breakouts :) + the recycled packaging, although with the smaller size it’s not really ideal to get the desired amount by unscrewing the lid and pouring the product onto your hand, etc. + the cold-pressed antioxidants + it’s vegan, and it’s paraben-free and sulfate-free Benefits According to YTTP: Kale: rich in vitamins C, E, & K Spinach: a skin-smoother that boosts moisture and has natural cooling properties Green Tea: anti-inflammatory and packed with essential fatty acids I think this product would be great for oilier skin types or combination skin. However, maybe I’m the only one to have found this slightly drying and people with dry skin may feel differently haha. The size in my photo is 30 mLs. Larger size is 237 mLs and retails for $47 CAD (has a pump).

FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser As I’ve said before I have super oily, acne prone skin that’s extremely picky about what products it’s going to like. I picked up this sample size of the Farmacy Clean Bee gel cleanser last year expecting very little, and I am never going back! This is a lovely gentle gel cleanser with a delicate botanical smell, formulated with hyalauronic acid, chamomile, and amino acids for even the most sensitive skin. This formula manages the fine line between leaving your feeling squeaky clean, but never stripping. After use my skin feels clean, plump, and calmed. My only “complaint” about this product is this price (which is my only complaint with Farmacy products), but this mini size has lasted me over six months of continuous use, which means the full size would last even longer. I would recommend this cleanser to pretty much anyone; but ESPECIALLY to those of you with sensitive or acne prone skin. A godsend! #CherieCreator #cleanser #skincare

In addition to daily sunscreen, washing your face is the most important part of any skincare routine. Here are the cleansers I've used:  Dermasence Mousse Reinigungsschaum This cleanser is definitely a favorite among those with combination-oily and oily, acne-prone skin in summer. Its foamy texture can easily remove ordinary sunscreens and it can even remove light foundation. FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser It contains honey amino acids and more than 10 kinds of natural, plant-derived ingredients, which is why it is both moisturizing and gentle. The chamomile and calendula botanical blend is also very soothing. It has a gel-like texture with a light honey scent. It creates a delicate foam and leaves your face squeaky clean and moisturized without any tightness. INSTITUT ESTHEDERM - Osmoclean Gentle Deep Pore Cleanser Unlike other traditional cleansing products, this is actually a deep cleansing cleanser. The official website suggests using it three times a week for oily skin, and twice a week for dry and combination-dry skin.

Over a lifetime of alternating/combining cleansers that were either too harsh or too mild (the plight of having acne-prone but sensitive skin), my face was either calm but congested beyond belief OR clear but inflammed if you looked at it wrong. I present to you a pH balanced cream cleanser that has both oil esters and water-based cleansers that doesn’t break the bank*: 🌸 ACURE - Seriously Soothing Cleansing Cream I use this every night and it completely dissolves my mineral sunscreen & and any mascara I may have on without stripping my skin. There was a noticeable difference in my skin texture and clogged pores when I switched to this from from my mild hydrating cleanser—even my mom told me that it looks like I’ve found the one 😭 Only con is it really smells like you’re snorting a peony but I’ve been forcing myself to enjoy it *Just had to say that I’m fundamentally opposed to spending $$$ on a cleanser (or spending a reasonable amount on a < 3 oz cleanser). That stuff is on your face for 1 min tops and then goes down the drain. Plus, a cleanser < 3 oz will be gone in 2 seconds if you’re washing your face 2x a day.
