Facial Cleansing With Brandless
So I think I posted quite a few reviews on some self care products from brandless so far and honestly I love the products they have the more I get to try them. I honestly feel like their cleanser is the best I have tried yet from this brand and am astonished that it is only 6$ a bottle. All brandless products are vegan, gluten free, cruelty free, and silicone free. Every single product they have to offer costs 6$ and the price does not vary which is phenomenal in my opinion.
Let’s start off with their facial cleanser which contains grapefruit and lemon extract. This cleanser is not only great at cleansing the skin but also helps brighten skin and even complexion. The consistency is a bit odd and definitely something you would have to get used to lol. It has a very goopy sort of slimy consistency which is something that I have noticed in most skincare that contains grapefruit. So I’m curious if it has something to do with that. Anyway the cleanser is very gentle on the skin and the best part is that it doesn’t strip the skin at all but more so leaves my skin feeling fairly moisturized and soft. Which is surprising considering it is a citric based cleanser.
Their facial scrub is pretty good but honestly isn’t something I would necessarily purchase again. This facial scrub contains grapefruit, pineapple extract, and papaya extract. It does exfoliate the skin and leave skin with a nice smooth surface. The ingredients help with brightening skin, minimizing dark spots, and evening complexion. The consistency is great and actually builds up a lather once you add water to the scrub. So it is not only exfoliating the skin but also cleansing in the process. The only thing I have an issue with is the fact that the base of the exfoliant is sea salt. For me this isn’t the best option when it comes to facial scrubs. Sea salt can be fairly abrasive and cause irritation and damage with long term use. Also the fact that it is such a pain to get off and makes the whole process more difficult and annoying. I would have rather them use sugar considering sugar dissolves with the more water you add and is a little less abrasive because of that aspect. Also sugar has its own exfoliating qualities that help contribute to the ending result. Sea salt just isn’t the best option when it comes to any kind of scrub and honestly is the only reason I would not purchase this product again.
That pretty much sums up my overall view of these two products. I think the price point is on time and I love that this brand focuses more around the product than the packaging. I have a couple more items left to review from brandless so stay tuned for that 😉😉.
