Disappointing 😔

I was really looking forward to it since it has a bunch of oils and I wanted it to be a first step in a double cleanse. . . Unfortunately, this cleanser isn’t for me. Firstly, the scent of lemongrass is extremely overwhelming, and made me quite nauseous in fact. Secondly, this was quite difficult to wash off and left a film, this wasn’t that big of a deal breaker since I was going to use this as the first step of my double cleanse. But, this didn’t do a good job of removing makeup as I imagined it would (that’s ok, it’s not marketed as a makeup remover). The last straw unfortunately was how tight and dry this left me skin feeling. It also contains essential oils. It’s really too bad, I wanted this to work. . . I really appreciate the clean direction that plant apothecary has. The ingredients are biodegradable and there are no preservatives (means a very short shelf life). I do appreciate that the clean beauty movement is about reducing harmful ingredients but I don’t agree with removing “chemicals” all together because...everything is a chemical lol Water is a chemical. . . Anywho, I was really hopeful for this product as it retails for $16 however I will be passing this along.

CeraVe SA Cleanser (How I Used For Results)✨✨
I bought this cleanser about a month ago now. I was skeptical but being drugstore friendly (affordable) I wanted to try it! This Cleanser: CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser Highlights: ✨SA=Salicylic Acid: BHA CREW ! This is a HG ingredient for treating acne! Its made from willow bark (bark from willow trees used in medicine since forever) and has many healing properties. This ingredient is “oil-soluble”, which means it’ll penetrate your skin lipid barrier (sorry I love science). This penetrates your skin and absorbs oil & dirt, as wells as, exfoliates. ✨Fragrence free: for my sensitive skin lovelies ✨Vitamin D: great for age prevention, antimicrobial, antibiotic, & anti—inflammatory (all great for acne) ✨Non-Comedogenic: doesn’t clog pores. How I use: Having combo skin, my oily zones loved this BUT my dryer cheek areas was dryer than the Sahara desert! This product works, so to find a way to make it effective all over my face, I decided to double cleanse, but with another cleanser. Before going in with this cleanser, I use either: CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin OR NOW PLANT APOTHECARY - Wash Your Face Certified Organic Aloe Face Wash This tend to leave my skin more hydrated than other cleansers and prep my skin with anti-inflammatory ingredients (plus it gets the dirts and oils amazingly) I then follow with this cleanser! I let this cleanser sit on my face similar to a mask for 30-60 secs! I find that SA in a cleanser is kind of diluted (as wash off products are no where as strong as topical) so this is very helpful! I then follow with a hydrating toner PAULA'S CHOICE - Enriched Calming Toner Is my go to at night! I treat my acne at night and I’m with so many harsh ingredients this is the PERFECT skin balancer 🥰 Follow with the rest of my routine.

I’ve been using this face wash a couple times a week now. This is made using essential oils so be aware there is fragrance to it. 🔅it doesn’t specify if it removes makeup, it does not. Learned the hard way and rubbed it over my eyes and my eyes started burning. 🔅 scent smells good, fragrance normally doesn’t bother me but I wouldn’t use this as a first cleanse 🔅good for a second cleanse after makeup has been removed 🔅texture is best described as a snail snot, it’s interesting but not bad 🔅 overall 3/5 for the fragrance and the burning when around eyes, and for the fact it doesn’t remove makeup

Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Cleanser
Glow recipe overall is a pretty expensive brand. I mean, not as overly priced as some, but it is still expensive. I got this cleanser as a gift in one of my Ipsy bags and decided to try it out. I made a 30 day vlog of how my skin reacted to it, and how well it was working, and if I would recommend the product or not (this video is not edited yet or posted, but I will tell you when it is:)). GLOW RECIPE - Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser This product is not life changing. Yes, it is a very nice cleanser but it’s no different than the ones I have used in the past. It kept my skin clear and soft and that’s it. I looked back at the ingredients after using it for a month and was not happy to see that fragrance was listed there. The other ingredients are incredible: blueberry extract, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Sodium Chloride, and Peony Root Extract. The most exciting part was seeing that it was in the “Clean at Sephora” section! It is one of Glow Recipes less expensive products too ($34 for 5.41oz)!

HOLI FROG - Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash Finally, my first post on here! I love this cleanser so much, I don’t know of any other cleanser just like it. I love non-foaming cleansers for my dry skin and though there are lots in the market, this one has AHA which is the best type of chemical exfoliant for dry skin. This is such a gentle, hydrating way to exfoliate, I can use it every other day with no problems, while I can barely use a physical exfoliant once a week. There is no irritating fragrance so most would probably say they don’t like the way it smells, but I don’t mind it at all. This is a definite repurchase for me.

Empties: Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser
Empties: Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser
I recently ran out of my beloved Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser! 🌻 SKIN TYPE, FUNCTION & CLAIMS 🌻 For my AM skincare routine I love to use a gentle, milky cleanser. I don’t like to use anything harsh, abrasive or stripping because I’m not washing off the day’s dirt or any makeup! My skin is normal and leans towards dry in the winter months. When shopping for a new AM cleanser I saw that this one claimed to “’wash’ your face without stripping it of moisture”, and it “leaves the skin feeling soft and supple” which is EXACTLY what I look for not only in an AM cleanser but that’s what I look for in cleansers in general during these winter months because my skin leans a little drier! I decided to give this one a go and I was NOT at all disappointed! 😍 🌼 TEXTURE, CONSISTENCY & FORMULA 🌼 This product has the most unique texture/consistency I’ve come across yet! It starts off as an oil, not like a runny kind of oil, more like a soft, thick texture and once you use water it turns it into a MILK! 🥛 It goes from having some structure to becoming a silky, creamy consistency. After rinsing it off it left my skin feeling SO nice and soft! You have to experience it yourself to understand just how lovely this formula is 💛 This cleanser is full of incredibly beautiful and nourishing ingredients such as oats, lactobacillus, vitamin e, and grapeseed oil. It has a very light, calming geranium scent to it that really completes the experience 😌✨ 🌞 FINAL THOUGHTS & PACKAGING 🌞 I LOVE this cleanser so much and really savored every last drop of it! You can tell it was really thoughtfully made by the formula and even down to the sugarcane tube packaging (very low carbon footprint!) It’s only $18 and you can catch it on sale sometimes at your local Whole Foods Market which I think is totally worth it considering the high quality ingredients you get! I totally recommend anyone of all skin types try this product! It’s such a nice, gentle formula that’s just perfect for a good AM routine and with a pH range of 5.25 it won’t disrupt your skin barrier. I will definitely be repurchasing it in the future! ⭐️🌟⭐️ cocokind - Oil to milk cleanser

Product claims: A gentle gel cleanser to remove makeup and debris while retaining moisture. Product target concerns: calms inflammation and irritation, locks in hydration without leaving residue. My experience: This cleanser has been one of my best skincare finds! It’s so gentle and the texture is so luxurious. It cleans the skin well without stripping it of moisture and I also love that it has no fragrance because fragrance irritates the hell out of my skin. It’s the perfect cleanser when you’re in need of double cleansing because it will help you remove the residue while keeping your skin hydrated. Do I recommend this to others? Yes absolutely. I think it will be a great cleanser for all skin types since it’s so gentle. Price: $38 for 5 oz.
