Creamy Coconut or Rose Oil?
Creamy Coconut or Rose Oil? Natural Cleansers for All Skin Types
I understand that a good cleanser is the essential first step in any skincare routine. The problem is, there aren’t that many cleansers around that actually do more than simply remove makeup or surface grime. The right cleanser, however, can do more than just remove dirt and impurities.
And that is why, when I was offered a choice of sample cleansers from Kensington Apothecary, I jumped at the opportunity to try the Creamy Coconut Cleanser. (Yes, the Rose Oil Cleanser was very tempting, but I love coconut in all its forms.) Both cleansers are formulated in ways that any health-conscious, eco-conscious person would love–with certified organic and non-GMO raw materials, sustainably-harvested ingredients, cruelty-free and conflict-free. How beautiful!
When I received my cleanser, I checked the ingredient information: Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Organic Glycerin (plant-sourced), Organic Coconut Pulp, Fig Fruit Extract, Honeysuckle Extract, Japanese Honeysuckle Extract, Xanthan Gum and Citric Acid. No paraben, no phosphate, no sulfate. When I tried the cleanser out, there was no scent, just a smooth creamy feel that left my skin clean and silky smooth. I loved it! According to product information, the honeysuckle extract in the cleanser provides an anti-inflammatory and calming sensation while hydrating and the Aloe vera acts as a protective layer on the skin. The coconut base prevents the cleanser from drying out the skin.
Both the coconut and the rose oil cleansers are sold at some Whole Foods, any spas and online. The price is $24.
