Starting the Morning off Fresh

recently i ran out of my beloved Lush Superbalm to cleanse my face. since my skin has been so dry, i was worried about starting my routine with something else. but as it was 5:30 a.m., there seemed no other choice. half asleep, i reached for my Soy Face Cleanser by Fresh. i had never used it before but got it during Christmas in a holiday package. i started to slowly rub it on my cheeks, eyes closed, and worked my way over my chin and my nose. then the nasal senses kicked in. hhheeeelllloooo cucumber! oh my goodness!!! you know when you cut into a cucumber and exposes the seeds and the aroma is just so clean and pleasant? ok well imagine taking all of those seeds and flesh and rubbing it into your skin. talk about a wake up call! 

this is really a treat for the senses as well as the skin. the formula is not exactly a gel and not exactly a balm. kind of in between. it does not dry out your skin at all! i wouldn't say it is ulta moisturizing either, more of like a balancing effect. my skin feels so clean and invigorated afterwards with none of the tightness you may experience with a gel like substance. i have been using it for about a month now with no irritations or breakouts. 

this products helps remove makeup and impurities from the skin and is safe around the eyes as well. i will say i have not used it as a makeup remover but it has removed the morning left over mascara without leaving behind a trace. it is paraben, sulfate, and soap free. it is rich in amino acids, soy proteins, and contains rosewater and of course cucumber. will be sure to keep this as part of my spring time morning routine.
