If you’re new to clean skin care or haven’t heard regarding it, Clean at Sephora is Sephora’s means of highlight clean beauty product. I purchased a number of products from the gathering and wished to review and rate what I purchased. Full disclosure, I bought these products a month agone and are exploitation them consistently. I really wanted to undertake them out and provides my skin time to react to them.
The brands that have the Clean Seal adhere to Sephora’s strict standards, have inexperienced packaging, and are all sustainably sourced.
All brands with the Clean Seal are created while not parabens, phthalates, gas and formaldehyde-releasers, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, and triclosan. Here’s the list of excluded ingredients. i’ll admit, I’m super affected with the quantity of product i’m able to select from.
I will rate Goop Beauty cleanser a 10/10 on the clean scale and 10/10 on the ethical & sustainable scale because all the ingredients are ethically sourced and clean. It’s also a 10/10 for doing its job and cleansing my face.
I’ve always been a fan of gel cleansers, they leave my skin moisturized and feeling refreshed. This cleanser has malachite which contains copper. Copper stimulates collagen production and improves the skin’s elasticity while reducing the appearance of wrinkles for a youthful complexion. Fruit acids are effective at combating signs of aging. They exfoliate, brighten and improve tone and texture. Common fruit acids are glycolic, lactic, mandelic, malic, tartaric, and citric acid.
Beli Aqua Bomb gets a 10/10 on the clean scale but it gets a 4/10 on the ethical & sustainable scale because I tried to find out where they source their shea butter from and I could not find out so… F for transparency. Through my search, I found out that Belif is not a cruelty-free brand. Because of those reasons, I would probably never use this product again. I wish I did more research when I bought it but you live and you learn. When I actually put this on, it feels oily and sticky and leaves a filmy top layer. I actually had to add another moisturizer on top of it to make it actually moisturize, so 0/10.
I was impressed at their ingredients like lady’s mantle, which is known for its skin-nurturing properties, ceramide, which helps skin retain water, and glycerin which helps retain skin’s moisture. Other notable ingredients include chickweed extract, nettle leaf extract, lavender extract, raspberry extract, citronellol, limonene, citral, and geraniol.
This product gets a 9/10 on the clean scale because it has fragrance listed as an ingredient. Clean at Sephora tried to be slick. They have a section for the Clean Fragrance category but those standards are only for perfumes and body sprays, not for their Clean Skincare category. They allow their Clean at Sephora products to be formulated with disclosed synthetic fragrances that meet the following two criteria: (1) the synthetic fragrances do not include any of the ingredients listed above and (2) the synthetic fragrances are at a concentration below 1% of the total formula.
So I guess the dewdrops meet those two criteria since it has such a low concentration. On the Glow Recipe blog, they write about why they use fragrance in their products, so I’ll increase their rating to 9.88889/10 because I really do appreciate their transparency.
On the ethical & sustainable scale, they get a 10/10. Glow Recipe does a lot for the environment – they have an up-cycling program, are working to be carbon neutral, use 100% recyclable packaging, and they’re all about female empowerment and environmentalism. The Watermelon Dew Drops also do a great job at making my skin feel dewy. It can be used as a highlighting serum for an added glow or as a makeup primer. Over the past month, I’ve used it both ways.
