ECLIPSE Activated Cleansing Gel (for sensitive, oily skin)

with activated charcoal and cardamom. 

A ultra-gentle, detoxifying and deep-cleansing gel, with both exfoliation and brightening properties, leaving skin feeling very soft. It is a black gel, contains no oils and rinses clean and yet it is moisturizing and hydrating. The scent is somehow both uplifting and refreshing and yet also warming and soothing. Can be used as a simple mask or rinsed very easily! Confusing? Perhaps. You'll have to try it to understand ECLIPSE's magic!

  • Dust stuck to my sweaty face and neck as we hauled our heavy packs into the second tuktuk of the journey. The sun was beginning to set by now, and I couldn't wait to feel a relief from the searing, stifling heat. The faintest breeze came came off the Indian Ocean, and I closed my eyes and clutched onto both my child and the tiny vehicle's "safety" bar as we hauled ourselves through the traffic of downtown Colombo. I couldn't wait to get in the shower, scrub the stickiness and heat off my body and curl up with my book in our hotel. I also couldn't wait to create the cleanser that would make my skin feel instantly detoxified, refreshed and clean but not at all tight and dry. This cleanser is the traveller's saviour. 

  • Description

    A gentle, oil-free gel cleanser that is pH-balanced for optimal skin health (4.4 to 5 depending on batch), and provides a mild, foamy experience. This formula is both nourishing and deeply cleansing, at the same time! It is also exfoliating, thanks to  fruit enzymes and white willow bark, and brightening due to licorice root. A lovely paradox, this pitch-black it reveals the opposite yet complementary functions of a great cleanse. 

    Activated coconut charcoal detoxifies and cleanses pores at a very deep level, while white willow bark exfoliates and calms inflamed skin. Licorice root brightens and evens the complexion and  A lovely, refreshing morning cleanse, but just as effective as an end-of-day-please-just-wash-it-all-away kind of cleanser. Lovely cardamom is both cooling and warm (magic!), and balances all doshas. Please note color may vary from batch to batch, from black to shades of grey.
