my combination skin is always on the hunt for a gentle, yet effective facewash and i am recently impressed with two cleansers from bare escentuals. part of their new skincare line designed to deliver smoother and brighter skin, both of these “cleansers with benefits” earn top marks from me.
first up, purifying facial cleanser is a total upgrade from my favorite cetaphil. its lotion-style strips off makeup (including pesky liner and mascara) and impurities but leaves skin feeling hydrated. if you’re looking for a grown up face wash to add to your evening routine, this is it. now, if you’re having trouble justifying the $20 pricetag (as opposed to cetaphil’s pocket-friendly $9) all i can tell you is that cleanser actually gives something back to your skin, improving it over time. you’ll feel a difference – i promise.
i know not everyone loves a lotion cleanser, so those looking for a deeper clean will love deep cleansing foam. a pearl-sized drop of this stuff explodes into rich lather and gives pores a deep clean without leaving skin tight and dry. it’s definitely not as gentle as purifying facial cleanser (i would not recommend getting this one in your eyes!) but those who need a heavier duty facewash will be very pleased. bonus: the “little goes a long way” dosage means this tube will last for-ever making the $20 totally worth your while.
are you in the market for a new cleanser? think you’ll give one of these a spin?
