Category: cleanser (page 2 of 3)



Every once in awhile I come across a product that completely changes the game for me. Sometimes it’s a mask, sometimes it’s a concealer, sometimes it’s a lipstick, sometimes it’s something a little less sexy than that, but still game changing all the same. Daiso Detergent For Puff And Sponge is a mouthful, but I almost feel like such a longwinded name is warranted after the way it blew me away.

Do you double cleanse?  If you don’t, you should. Even if you’re not big on makeup, you should still double cleanse if for no other reason than it’s the only thing that can properly remove the sunscreen I’m going to assume you’re wearing every day (you’d better be wearing it!). Anyone that does wear makeup can attest to the difficulty of removing every last bit of waterproof eyeliner, mascara, and whatever goodies you use to glam up your eyes. One of the gentlest ways to do that is with an oil cleanser, and the easiest way to use an oil cleanser is in the form of a balm cleanser. Those that don’t like the runny juggling act you have to do with an oil cleanser, but love the results, are going to absolutely love balm cleansers. They are the consistency of sherbet/sorbet and as they are warmed up by your skin and friction, turn into oil, making short work of removing stubborn makeup and sunblock.

I’ve reviewed a sherbet cleanser before, way back at the start of this blog, but had gone back to oil cleansers since that one ran out. A couple of months back I was sent this Banila Co Clean It Zero Purity from my one of my favourite shops, SokoGlam. I can’t believe I have gone all this time without trying the Banila Co cleanser, it’s a been a basic staple for almost everyone I know in the game. It comes in a plastic tub and they include a little spatula scooper thing so you don’t have to dig your nasty hands into the product. I always appreciate when a company does that. Immediately upon testing the cleanser I was mad I hadn’t tried it sooner. Once applied to dry skin and massaged in, your makeup simply melts away. Even my beloved Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liner which is super tough, is no match for this balm. There isn’t even the ghost of a trace of that liner left, and that shit stays on my face through my 105 degree hot power flow yoga classes! (Seriously folks, anyone who does intense sports or just really loves long last tough makeup, needs to own that liner. And anyone who wants that tenacious stuff off with ease needs to own this cleanser. They’re both little miracles).

If you would have told my 10 year old self that when I grew up I’d be washing my face with rose petals, I’d have said “So you’re telling me I did grow up to be a Supermodel-Princess-
Anthropologist-Millionaire?!”. Well, I may have grown up to be a lowly anonymous beauty blogger, but I am still washing my face in pure luxury thanks to the Su:m37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick

I’ve been meaning to write this review for awhile and by now you’ve probably already heard the praise heaped upon this product by my beauty blogger peers. I’m here to tell you every bit of it is totally deserved. In case you have’t yet heard of this wondrous pink baby, allow me to introduce you to your new best friend.

When I first heard about this product from my girls over at The Wanderlust Project and Skin&Tonics, the unusual presentation of a cleanser in stick form was enough to get me to sign on. Housed in a sturdy plastic tube that reminds me of a glamourous industrial sized glue stick, this twist up cleanser is solid like a soap, but much creamier and softer.

To use you simply twist it up a couple of millimeters, apply to your wet face in a circular motion, and then lather as you would any other cleanser. Speaking of lather, this one’s is like a rose scented marshmallow cloud. If I had to guess what unicorns used to wash their face, I couldn’t imagine them choosing anything but this product. It’s unbelievably lush and creamy. Ugh, it’s heavenly. You really feel like you’re doing something special to pamper your skin rather than just the routine, boring, chore of washing your face. Keep in mind before I tried this cleanser, I was perfectly happy with my CerAve cleanser, and I still use it just to switch things up, but now I can’t imagine my routine without the Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick in there at some point. 

In addition to smelling, and feeling like a rosy dream, this cleanses superbly. It leaves my skin feeling clean but insanely soft. I really dislike cleansers that rob your skin of it’s moisture in the name of ‘squeaky clean’. This is the opposite of that, it leaves me feeling more supple than before I washed my face when I’m experiencing dryness. That being said, it’s not overly heavy if my skin is behaving normally.

Another huge plus for this already brimming with positives cleanser, is it’s portability. Traveling with your regular cream or foam cleanser is such a pain. This plastic tube keeps your cleanser protected, takes up minimal space, and will never be subject to those B.S. liquid limits at the airport. It’s slim upright design also lends itself perfectly to your precious bathroom storage space. If you live in the city like I do, you’ve got a bathroom like a closet and space is always an issue, especially when you follow a multi-step routine. 

Keep in mind before I tried this cleanser, I was perfectly happy with my Cerave cleanser, and I still use it just to switch things up, but now I can’t imagine my routine without the Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick. 

Packed with ingredients that boast basically every good “anti” you could ask for: antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and emollient properties, Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick certainly lives up to the name Miracle for me. Five out of five turtles, plus one, earning a holy grail status.
