I’m one of those people who believe in using a different cleanser to meet a certain skin need. So receiving four different cleansers from Holifrog isn’t overwhelming at all.
I use the Kissimmee Vitamin F Therapy Balmy Wash as a first cleanser to remove makeup. It does remove foundation and everyday makeup products but I use a different balm for long-wearing and waterproof products. This cleanser doesn’t lather or emulsify. It feels balmy, as advertised and leaves a bit of a film after rinsing so this is best removed with a damp cleansing cloth. It does leave the skin feeling soft, though.
To clarify and brighten, the Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash helps clear and brighten the skin. I use this when my skin is looking dull and feeling clogged as it contains glycolic, mandelic, lactic, tartaric, and citric acids. It also feels gentle on the skin.
The Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash promises to cleanse oily skin using Probacillus Revive, lactobacillus, kombucha, grapeseed oil, broccoli seed oil, flaxseed oil, camellia seed oil, and sea buckthorn oil. It has a gentle natural smell and it feels really gentle on the skin when you lather and after rinsing. It doesn’t foam much and yet it leaves you with a clean feeling after wash. It’s meant for oily skin types but it doesn’t completely strip the skin. I like using this on a normal good skin day when my only problem is excess oil.
I enjoyed using the Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash when I was in Europe because my skin didn’t get thoroughly oily in the climate there. This, as promised, nourished my skin while gently cleansing it. It contains amino acids, water lily root, and lotus flowers, panthenol, blue-green algae, apricot kernel oil, sunflower oil, vitamin e, and aloe vera.
Overall, if you are looking for a cruelty-free cleanser that is gentle and nourishing to the skin, you will find a Holifrog Cleanser that suits your skin type.
