“A 3-in-1 purifying, inflammation soothing, blemish reducing cleanser / masque / targeted spot treatment.” -Suki
PRODUCT RATING: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆(6/10)
PRICE DETAILS: 30 ml./1 oz. $43.95 – Glass bottle with pump (♦♦♦♦♦)
SKIN TYPE: All skin types. Especially combination, acneic, blemishing, rosacea, irritated & eczema-prone skin types.
BEST FOR: Sensitive skin who need ultra-gentle detoxifying or a clay mask alternative.
QUICK REVIEW: A decent natural spot treatment or quick mask. Not effective as a daily cleanser.
the REVIEW (Original Post: 05/05/10): This product is meant to be used as a cleanser and has a very runny texture and a mild herbal (maybe the lavender and calendula?) scent along side the obvious clay scent. I don’t think its a very effective cleanser and if used as one, wouldn’t last very long. However, it is a very good mask option for those with sensitive skin since it isn’t overly drying. I’ve even tried it as a spot treatment with fairly effective results. I did really enjoy using it after a scrub with Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser and had markedly clearer and smoother skin. I should add that the Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser does keep my pores pretty clear so its possible that my skin just doesn’t NEED this product. Others might have a more dramatic experience.
UPDATE (08/31/10): This is still sitting in my bathroom cabinet. I always forget to use this and the Creamy Foaming Cleanser because I have a bunch of other products accessible.
