Hush & Dotti Original Balm Cleanser
Hush & Dotti is a vegan, cruelty free skincare line committed to making high quality, natural and organic small batch products. As I understand it, the Balm Cleanser was the company's inaugural creation and what started it all. Cleansing with a balm always feels a bit strange to me, but I've enjoyed using this one nonetheless, particularly during the transition to drier fall weather. The balm is rich and buttery, but not at all waxy, so it wipes off easily and doesn't leave your face feeling coated. Instead, you're left with soft, hydrated, touchable skin. Hush & Dotti's formula is also coconut oil free, great for those of us who can't tolerate coconut oil on the face. The cleanser also has a really pleasant, slightly spicey, herbal scent.
Kaia Bamboo Tapioca Beads*
Kaia's Bamboo Tapioca Beads are a dry powder that - once activated with the liquid of your choice - can be used as either an exfoliating cleanser or a face mask. Composed mainly of bamboo, tapioca, and kaolin clay, the powder is gentle, but also very effective. The powder form may seem like extra effort, but I really love how it allows you to easily customize it, just by switching up the liquid component. You can use anything from water to tea, an oil, honey, yogurt, or even a liquid face cleanser. Whatever you choose to use, the beads leave your face feeling smooth and refreshed and they smell great too - fresh and citrusy!
Earthbody Brighten Cleanser + Mask*
Brighten is a rhassoul clay-based cleanser/mask that came in the August Petit Vour box and has quickly become a favorite. It's packed with thirteen plant and fruit powders, including acai, papaya, guava, mangosteen, and pineapple to "firm, lift, and hydrate without depleting essential moisture." I've only used it as a mask thus far, but it can also be used as a rinse off cleanser.
