This cleanser took me by surprise—in the best way possible
We’ve all tried more cleansers than we can count over the course of our lifetimes, and I think it’s safe to assume that we rarely expect anything earth-shattering when we try one for the first time. Sure, we may be pleasantly surprised by how soft our skin feels afterwards, or how easily a cleanser washes away, but nothing will prepare you for what you’ll experience when you try Odacité’s Black Mint Cleanser.
First surprise: This cleansing gel is black thanks to activated charcoal (and it also contains rhassoul clay for even more detoxification, purification and palpable skin-softening). The gel transforms to a lovely foam once you mix it with water and massage it into your face—and then the real magic happens. You begin to feel a wonderful tingle and cooling sensation thanks to the menthol-laced peppermint, which also works to minimize the appearance of pores.
Since the cleansing agent is derived from apple amino acids (as opposed to harsh surfactants), you get super-clean, fresh-feeling skin without stripping the skin of its natural “good” oils. Ideal for normal, combination and oily/acne-prone skin, this cleanser is truly a treat both for your skin and the senses—and provides a unique experience that I’d never expected from a cleanser (much less a 100% natural, vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free product).
If you’re looking to add a little excitement to your skincare routine, this cleanser is the perfect place to start, and you might want to check out Odacité’s other amazing offerings while you’re at it. I’m also smitten with the Bl+C | Pimples, Po+R | Hydration and Pa+G | Hyperpigmentation Serum Concentrates—and the Aventurine Kiss Lip Serum (and its crystal rollerball applicator that was selected to deliver good luck and prosperity) is beyond divine as well.
