A Mild Yet Mighty Cleanser For Everyone
By Heather Long |
As an aesthetician, I am often asked to try out new product lines on my own skin. Everyone wants to know what I consider high-quality, but I'm often given samples of items not suited to my own skin's needs-until I was given pur~lisse pur delicate gentle soy cleanser and makeup remover.
This cleanser states that it's tailored for all skin types. Usually, when I read that, I think "everyone's but mine" because I suffer from extra-dry skin most of the year. But after using it for a week straight, I have discovered that this really is for all skin types. This isn't your typical foaming wash, so it will never strip your skin, yet it will cleanse deeply enough to remove daily dirt, residue and makeup. The texture is soft and silky, and it leaves your skin feeling that way, too.
After studying the ingredients on the back of the box, I realized where all of these results were coming from. It contains lupine peptides (amazing for smoothing, oxygenating, and renewing skin cells), white tea extract (a powerful antioxidant that repairs tired skin while combating cellular damage), blue lotus (which stimulates circulation and soothes irritation), soy protein (to promote collagen and elastin production, and keep skin calm), and sea silk (for its anti-aging properties).
The icing on the cake, for me, is that pur~lisse products are free of parabens, synthetic colors and fragrances, animal byproducts, petrochemicals, and the typical ingredients and fillers that tend to cause irritating reactions.
