Product Perks:

  • When added with water, this cream-based cleanser turns to a light foaming consistency (but don’t worry, it’s free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates), allowing you to easily work it into your skin as well as wash it off.
  • Know that Greek yogurt is rich in proteins? This moisturizing cleanser is produced with a Greek yogurt concentrate that includes proteins which provide your skin with amino acids—substances that have been known to do wonders like build collagen and elastin, improving skin structure.
  • Greek yogurt isn’t the cleanser’s only plus. It also includes honeysuckle which is said to soothe and promote antibacterial benefits for the skin.

How It Works:
The formula looks and feels like a thick, milky substance—and yes, it’s supposed to go on your face. Squeeze out a small portion (a little bit bigger than the size of a quarter) on your clean, wet hands. Make sure your face is damp. Lightly massage in the formula—you’ll see that the consistency will start to thin out and turn to a foam-like texture. Rinse it off with water to finish your face-washing routine. This product is especially moisturizing, so it won’t leave your skin leaving super stripped and dry like many other cleansers.
