Finally: The Ultimate Cleanser

Imma just put it on the table: my skin is jacked up. Mother Nature, WTF? I’ve tried products upon treatments upon drugs and you know what? I’ve given up the quest for perfect skin. It’s not going to happen. What I haven’t given up is the quest for skin that I can feel comfortable in. So now, instead of using methods that seem wrong and overly harsh, I’m looking for products that make my skin feel good. The first winner in this category was Bliss’ Steep Clean mask (now loved by several Power Animals). Another item that I am growing to love more every day is Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser.

I’ve tried harsh and I’ve tried gentle, but no cleanser has achieved the balance of this one. It exfoliates ever so gently with Amazonian White Clay particles, which makes it perfect for everyday use. The smell is clean, earthy and natural, making it pleasant to use. The best part is the way my skin feels afterwards – slightly dried out (something I welcome, since my skin is on the shinier side), but not tight, itchy or stripped-feeling at all…and smooth! And I swear, it keeps oiliness under control with regular use. <3 <3 <3. Now, if only I could find a moisturizer that would rule my world with an iron fist in a velvet glove…

Get thee to Kiehl’s for Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser!

PS: Seriously, anyone have any moisturizer suggestions?
