A cleanser as filled with paradox, as it is with great ingredients: it is ultra-gentle, yet detoxifying and deep-cleansing, with both exfoliation and brightening properties. It is a rich, creamy black gel, yet contains no oils and rinses clean. The scent is somehow both uplifting and refreshing and yet also warming and soothing. 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.
A gentle, oil-free gel cleanser that is pH-balanced for optimal skin health, and provides a mild, foamy experience. This formula is both nourishing and deeply cleansing, at the same time! It is also mildly exfoliating, thanks to white willow bark, and brightening due to licorice root. A lovely paradox, this pitch-black gel...as 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 cucumber soothes and cools. Colloidal oats nourish the skin with moisture, and birch tree-derived xylitol boosts collagen production. 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.
Who is it for?:
Squirt a dime-sized amount in palm, and massage over damp or dry skin. Let sit for 15-30 seconds, then rinse off with warm water. Pat dry, and follow with a moisturiser (your favourite Stark oil, of course). Toner is not necessary as this is pH balanced, but facial mists are always welcome. :)4 oz./ 120 ml
