In my quest for optimum health, I’ve actually been paring down many of the beauty products I use. To be honest, I’ve discovered that less is more – especially when it comes to ingredients. As a result, I’ve purged my side of the medicine cabinet of any products containing sodium laurel sulfate, parabens, phthalates and silicones. So when I came across this healthy jelly cleanser (a Sephora freebie for having accumulated Insider points) I was curious and eager to try it out. I’m even more excited to offer this jelly cleanser review now!
The Joana Miranda Studio jelly cleanser review:
(As you can see, when I discover a new product I like, my little cartoon characters get excited and want to get in on the action, too. )
Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser by the new skin care brand Drunk Elephant is free of all of the potentially toxic ingredients I mentioned above. Even better, it even gets a very good score from the Environmental Working Group! The cleanser has a clear, unscented gel consistency which lathers nicely upon contact with water. I’ve found it to be very effective at cleansing and removing makeup. I’ve taken to using the jelly cleanser at night to clean off “the day” before I crawl into bed. My skin feels clean and soft, but still moisturized. A little of the cleanser goes a long way, too, so this sample will last a long time. That said, when I run out, I’m already planning to purchase more of it.
By the way…
I also got a sample of Drunk Elephant’s Protini Polypeptide Creme which is pictured above along with the jelly cleanser. The Protini creme is a protein moisturizer designed to help reduce lines, wrinkles and signs of sun damage. To be honest, I’m not sure its made a big difference yet – Spackle might be the only thing that helps fix my forehead worry lines! – but I do like the rich, non-greasy feel of the creme and have not had any adverse reactions to using it.
I still LOVE using my tried and tested First Aid beauty cleanser, moisturizers and Cannabis Dry Oil, too. Which just goes to show you that a girl can have TWO besties!
How about you? Do you have any natural beauty products you love that I should know about? I’d love to hear…
