Gentle and natural, my face is thankful!

  • Feb 28, 2009
I thoroughly enjoy this face wash, as does my husband. It leaves the skin very clean, without residue, smells great (although it might take some getting used to for some people), and has natural ingredients without all the parabens and petroleum based toxic nonsense. The reason I did not give it a five is that it does leave my skin a little dry, but nothing a natural moisturizer can't fix! I was also skeptical about the watery consistency until I used it and it foamed a little, but not the way typical  face washes do.

Today I happened to look at the ingredients again while showering and it dawned on me that the main ingredient is castile soap, another data point I want to review because the stuff is nothing short of amazing. Did I mention that this stuff is from my favorite store, Trader Joe's? So here is the breakdown:

  • All natural
  • No residue
  • Great scent without toxic fragrance
  • Lasts a long time
  • Convenient packaging
  • Mix of essential oils
  • Foams well
  • Cruelty free
  • Made in the USA

What did you think of this review?
