Test Divas: When the right facial cleanser finds you

Has anyone else had a hard time finding a cleanser that cleans your skin without drying it out?
A little back story…
As someone with dry, sensitive skin, I’ve found it hard to find a cleansing product that actually works for me. The majority of those I’ve used in the past have left my skin feeling dried out and uncomfortably tight. Often I’ve had to apply a moisturizing cream to re-hydrate my skin.
In saying that, you can imagine my reaction when a Cleansing Crème product came across my desk. I was very skeptical at first to try the LATHER Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème, but to my surprise it actually works! As soon as I put the “pea-sized” amount in my hands and ran it under water, the crème went from a smooth, thick consistency to a bubbly delight. While rubbing it on my face, I could actually feel it cleaning and hydrating while enjoying the light citrus aroma. My skin was not only very clean, but I didn’t feel like my natural oils were stripped away.
Afterwards I applied the Chia Seed & Passion Fruit Facial Oil. Personally, I’ve never used a facial oil to avoid feeling greasy. To my astonishment, using the facial oil made my face feel truly nourished and not greasy at all. After just the first use my face felt soft and hydrated.
These two products paired together, are a match made in heaven.
I’ve now experienced what a refreshed and renewed face feels like, and I couldn’t be happier. These two products have become essential to my skincare routine and are helping me to restore a healthy radiant face.
If I haven’t convinced you to try a new cleanser, check out some of the products yourself:
Caviar Lime: a rich in alpha hydroxyl acids that gently exfoliate the skins surface Meadowfoam Seed Oil: an excellent source of Vitamin E Sodium Hyaluronate: keeps the skin’s moisture in balance
Organic Chia Seed Oil: rich in soothing Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid and packed with antioxidants Passion Fruit Seed Oil: abundant in hydrating Omega-6 linoleic acid and Vitamin C Grape Seed, Rosehip & Tahitian Monoi Oils: deliver additional moisture and protection with Vitamins E, A and Lycopene
To all you who are fed up with dry skin and are looking for a new experience, take it from me… IT WORKS!
