Charcoal Cleansing Bar
It seems like a no-big-deal kind of product, but this face and body bar has it all when it comes to its detoxifying ingredients, including Japanese binchotan charcoal, organic green tea, and organic coconut oil. Jen R. gave the product five stars, writing: "I have been using the charcoal bar faithfully for about 6 months now. My complexion is the best it has ever been in over 35 years. It does not over-dry but instead has the perfect balance for cleaning and oil removal. I love it!"
No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil
A citrus-scented face oil that aims to "awaken and replenish" your skin? Yes, please! Reviewer Tina O. said the lightweight oil is "just the right amount of moisture to hydrate my skin."
Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage
We're not going to lie: A tinted moisturizer that also boasts SPF 20 and makes your skin look like glowing perfection is kind of hard to pass up. Reviewer Kristin E. agreed, writing: "I had high hopes for this product and it delivered on everything! Love the fact that it has skin protecting SPF, evens my skin tone and gives it this yummy dewy youthful finish. I just go in with a little concealer on any problem spots or under eyes and it's perfect. I look natural and refreshed."
Body Wash in Citrus Mimosa
Lather up with this citrus-scented body wash, which includes marula and mongongo oils — two ingredients that help to soften and protect skin. With more than 650 five-star reviews, it's no surprise that Tricia A. wrote: "Whenever I use these products, I feel like I have just stepped out of a spa. My skin looks and feels great, and the all-natural fragrances are heavenly!"
Overnight Resurfacing Peel
Formulated with 15 botanically-derived acids (and not the synthetic fragrances and preservatives found in other peels), this leave-on treatment helps to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots, as well as improve skin's overall texture. It's no wonder reviewer Eileen B. wrote that she got a compliment that her skin was the best it had ever looked.
One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes
If you've ever spent 30 minutes in front of the mirror trying to remove a day's worth of makeup, you know just how frustrating the process can be. That's why a wipe that claims to remove everything in just one step sounds too good to be true — except that it's not. User Diana R. said she loves the oil-free wipes, noting: "Not only did they remove the makeup very well, they also leave my face feeling clean and refreshed. I find myself using them even if I’m not wearing makeup just to freshen my face up."
