Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash
Your average gel cleanser, with a pretty strong, sunscreeny coconut scent. If you like Pacifica's scents and foaming cleansers, this might work for you, but I found it left my face with that dreaded tight/dry feeling.
Trilogy Very Gentle Cleansing Cream
I really liked this one! It's a thick, unscented cream cleanser that easily removes makeup and leaves skin super clean, but never stripped. It reminded me of Weleda's Soothing Almond Cleanser, which makes sense as the Trilogy also has an almond oil base.
Blissoma Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser
Did this cult favorite live up to the hype? I've got to say yes! It's gentle and non-irritating, but provides a slight exfoliation from the rice. I also enjoyed the fresh citrus scent. Now that Blissoma is available in Canada (through Nuciya), I think I'll be picking up a bottle at some point!
May Lindstrom The Clean Dirt
Another much hyped product, The Clean Dirt is a powdered cleanser that you activate with water and then massage into the skin. With ingredients like clay, cacao, cinnamon, and clove, it smells amazing, but it's not something my skin could tolerate everyday as a cleanser. A couple times a week, maybe, though it's hard to say after just one use.
Moody Sisters Goats Milk Cleanser
I liked how gentle this one felt on my skin, but it had a thin, watery consistency that made it difficult not to lose the entire sample down the drain. I also didn't like the scent - it reminded me of generic, hotel soap - though there is an unscented option as well.
So, two winners (Trilogy and Blissoma), a maybe (May Lindstrom) and two no's (Pacifica and Moody Sisters). Not too bad! Have you used any of these?
