The answer? The Bare Minerals ‘Clay Chameleon Transforming Purfying Cleanser’; a clay-to-cream facial dream. Combining purifying Brazilian Red Clay, mineral-rich Sea Salt and Bamboo extracts, this cleanser detoxifies…with an emphasis on gentle.
The no-fuss way that I apply this cleanser is as follows! I squeeze a 3cm dollop of pink creamy clay goodness into the palm of my hands, and mix together with a very small splash of water. Smearing my face with gentle, small circular movements; I lather up the mixture until it turns from pink to white. I then gently wipe off the cleanser using a soft cloth (I use the Liz Earle cotton cloths, as they are super kind to my skin) and I’m done! Easy peasy!
I just love the way my skin feels after I use this gorgeous pink beauty. After a quick application and gentle wipe off, my skin feels so soft to touch. Genuinely, like a feather.
Another way I use this cleanser is as a hardcore face mask. Rubbing the pink clay directly on my face without mixing with water, I wait 30 minutes before washing off. Voila! Soft and supple skin, without an oily pore in sight.
The revival of natural VS chemical has been a revelation that has totally rocked my world this year. I didn’t realise the damage I was creating by using packet make-up wipes pre-loaded and saturated with a huge long list of artificial chemicals and perfumes. Since I have switched to a skin-care brand that is a huge advocate of using natural ingredients, my skin has noticeably calmed and settled. Yes, I do still have days/weeks where something I have eaten or touched flares up my dermatitis (who’s with me?!) but on the whole, my skin is so much better than last year.
One thing I have found is that this cleanser is a little too powerful to use around the eye area. The very few times I have tried to remove my mascara and eye make-up using this cleanser, the clay has ended up in my eyes and girl was it painful! Instead, I use the Bare Minerals ‘Oil Obsessed™ Total Cleansing Oil’ to effortlessly glide over my eyes, removing mascara with two swipes. No more pain, yay!
You babes know how much I love Bare Minerals, and once again their formulations have ticked every box for me. This cleanser has totally transformed my night-time routine, and eliminated SO MANY blocked pores that other cleansers could not even touch. I just know this will be a skin-care staple in my cupboard for years to come.
