Orange Essence Facial Cleanser 100% Natural

How it Works
With orange oil to cleanse and purify, and olive oil and aloe vera to soothe, moisturize and condition, this formula is perfect for refreshing, hydrating cleansing. It's designed to clean and replenish without the tight after-feel that harsh soaps and detergents can leave behind.

How to Use It
Wet your face and apply the cleanser with your fingertips or a washcloth, massaging gently to loosen and remove dirt and makeup. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and follow with a cool rinse. Complete your daily regimen with a toner and your favorite Burt's Bees cream or lotion.

What I think: It smells really good like oranges obviously. Its very moisturizing for dry skin and for the winter, but I dont like how it doesnt make my skin feel clean after. I think its better for mature skin because my mom luvs this!

Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream

What it claims: Looking for a deeper clean? This rich, sulfate-free facial cleanser is made with a gentle, yet effective plant-based cleansing complex featuring quillaja saponaria (soap) bark extract and witch hazel. Luxurious lather foams away excess dirt, oil and make-up leaving skin feelling clean and refreshed.

What I think: This is my HG cleanser! It makes your skin tingle when you use it, but doesnt dry your skin up. Its not so great at removing eye makeup but I still love it due to the great feeling i get after i use it.
