Hey Everyone, I’m Keri Chen, and I'm really honored to be doing this product review for Claribelskincare.com. I absolutely love this sulfate free cleanser, which is specifically their Natural Cleansing Balm with Vitamin C, Grapefruit and Blood Orange. Wow! This product is amazing. It smells delicious and feels so nourishing on my skin. Read on to learn more…
Personal Profile & Skin Care Story
I have been a big advocate of natural skin care products for years now, and love private brands like Claribelskincare.com. I realize there’s little change that brands on big store shelves can offer the same quality ingredients and avoid the chemicals, which help preserve their products long term on store shelves. For those reasons, it’s the private brands that I gravitate to and indulge in without concern for my health. Besides, online stores like Claribelskincare.com offer products that feel like little indulgences and treats, something we all enjoy.
Packaging, Details & Outward Esthetics
This sulfate free cleanser is packaged in a sturdy glass jar with black lid. I need my products in glass because it not only feels more substantial and well made, but it seems better to package precious earth derived ingredients in glass versus plastic. The labeling is pretty and simple. They do use vegan based dyed and recycled packaging, which coincides with their all natural environmentally friendly message.
Product Feel, Texture, Smell and Overall Description
This cleanser feels AMAZING for so many reasons! It’s smooth, natural texture is like purity in a jar. It’s creamy, like a rich delicious moisturizer. But this is more like a cold cream, gently melting away makeup and the day’s dirt and grime. You won’t have any lather with this particular product of their, but that’s okay. The light slip that this has when you’re working it in and rinsing it off is fantastic and makes your skin feel super clean and hydrated all at the same time.
The scent is a natural, citrus fruit vibe, that comes from blood orange, mango and grapefruit. It’s much nicer than the synthetic fruity scents of many skin care products.
My routine in using this sulfate free cleanser is to enjoy like I would a spa treatment. I have a hot bath with a few drops of essential oil in my bath water, I light a candle and set the intention for a peaceful evening, wet my face, and take a dollop of this cleanser and apply it all over my face, including over my eyelids to dissolve my makeup. Then I rinse thoroughly. It’s wonderful!
Results and Opinion
I noticed as soon as I made the switch from store bought cleanser to this sulfate free cleanser that my skin was softer, as soon as the first day. I especially love this cleanser because regardless of what kind of skin treatment I do, even if they make my skin feel irritated at first (microneedle, radio frequency), this cleanser will soothe and calm my skin down with healing and hydrating properties.
