Skincare Review: Good Molecules Clarify & Cleanse Bar and Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches

Working from home now allows me to do a longer skincare routine. Featuring this morning’s routine feature these new vegan and cruelty-free drops from Good Molecules.

The Clarify & Cleanse Bar claims to be a gentle soap-free cleansing bar that clarifies and detoxifies the using salicylic acid, kaolin clay, rosehip oil, and grapeseed oil. This cleansing bar instantly makes a foam. As with most soaps, it was also easy to rinse off my face. It left my skin feeling soft, refreshed, and clean. The only con I could think of is that dissolves easily.

The Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches contains caffeine, acetyl tetrapeptide-5, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid to brighten, hydrate, and reduce puffiness around the eyes in just 10 minutes. As with most eye patches, this is relaxing and soothing to the skin. I like using this while I work because it feels so hydrating and relaxing. I have yet to see it’s brightening benefits but this definitely de-puffs the eye area.

Skincare Review: Beekman 1802 Triple Milk 5-Piece Set

What started as a farm has now evolved into a lifestyle brand. Beekman 1802 works with farmers, craftspeople, and artisans to produce everything from food, home items to apparel and skincare.

They sent over their Triple Milk Collection, which uses three kinds of milk – goat milk to soothe, coconut milk to condition, and milk protein to nourish.

To melt makeup and oil-based products, the Triple Milk Cleanser ($35) uses argan oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil to cleanse the skin. This is a bit creamy for my preference but it was able to remove makeup easily. It also feels gentle on the skin. It leaves a film but it was easily removed by the second cleanser.

As a second cleanser, Triple Milk Bar ($12) aims to draw out water-based debris before leaving the skin soft and hydrated. This is my favorite out of the set. It’s creamy and nourishing, it easily foams, and it cleanses the skin thoroughly without drying it.

The Triple Milk Peel ($40) promises to lift dead skin for a softer, glowing complexion. I was prepared for this to sting but it didn’t. It actually felt so gentle so this would be a good exfoliator for those who are just starting with exfoliants and those who have sensitive skin.

The Triple Milk Skin Milk ($50) works to hydrate and protect the skin. I like the milky and watery texture of this moisturizer. It applied beautifully but it felt heavy on the skin after a few minutes. It also made my skin oilier so this might be best used by those with dry skin.

The Triple Milk Primer SPF 35 ($30) is designed to be an oil-free, weightless, invisible, pore-perfecting primer with a broad-spectrum zinc oxide sunscreen with UVA/UVB filters. This, like the moisturizer, felt heavy on the skin. I will have to pull this out on the colder months as I have a feeling it would work better for me by that time.

Overall, those with dry and sensitive skin would enjoy using this EWG certified set as they are moisturizing, gentle, and nourishing to the skin.
