Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser: Have Your Cake and Eat it Too
The sponge and water gal in me tends to protect my cleansing routine simplicity. Fancy cleansers? So not my thing, I'm low maintenance, remember? (Though let's be honest, who am I kidding?)
My little sample of Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser pretty much blew any ideas I had about washing my face out of the water. And that's because it did something fun: It reacted, changed. Scooping the gritty sugary grains from the package and rubbing my palms together whipped up the formula and it frothed, foamed, and filled the shower with the smell of lemon cake. The texture of my face felt refined and I looked better immediately after using it. Sugar, the first ingredient, naturally contains gentle alpha hydroxy acid, and citric acid contributes it's purifying properties via lemongrass extract. When I found out the formula is award winning, I was sussed I'd never tried it before now. It smells so good, foams so perfectly, and works so well, that a pre-summer cake refrain is no sweat, now that I can get my Suki sugar-fix on.
(Note: This cleanser is not for you if you have cystic acne or rosacea).
