Cleansing is my single most important beauty ritual. No matter how exhausted I am at the end of the day, I always take time to wash off my makeup, the sweat from the gym or the grunginess of the day. I have used countless cleansers with varying results. Soap & Glory’s Soap & Clarity 3 in 1 Daily Detox Vitamin C Facial Wash is surely up there as one of my favorites. This wash is full of Vitamin C, which has been used for centuries for its many health benefits.
It's been centuries since British sailors discovered the key to avoiding scurvy: vitamin C. Vitamin C plays a vital role in maintaining the health of your skin. Those sailors and others who couldn't get fresh fruits and vegetables suffered bleeding under the skin, ulcers and joint weakness. That's because vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength. Vitamin C also helps create scar tissue and ligaments, and it helps your skin repair itself. Vitamin C’s skin-health benefits are largely attributed to its benefits in supporting healthy collagen. Collagen works hand-in-hand with elastin to support the skin. Basically, it supplies the framework that provides form, firmness, and strength to the skin, while elastin is what gives skin its flexibility.
Modern medicine has come to realize why these herbal remedies were so trusted by ancient civilizations. When topically applied, vitamin C provides a skin-rejuvenating effect by improving collagen synthesis in the skin that slows down with aging, as well as limiting skin damage from free radicals. I believe the Vitamin C in this product helps contribute to its effectiveness.
This face wash is described as “A high-tech, gentle non-drying foaming facial wash, formulated with complexion-friendly, easy-rinse surfactants and special SUPERFRUIT™ PLUM skin brightening complex.” I used this wash for the first time in the shower. It has a very clean and fresh fragrance. I immediately loved the little scrubby bits suspended in the light green gel like formula. I love a wash that combines exfoliate properties, scrubbing always makes my skin feel clean. It was defiantly an “easy rinse” cleanser as it washed away nicely. What stands out most with this product was how clean my face felt after cleansing, without leaving my face tight and dry. I tend to have a shiny forehead, but noticed this was remedied after using this wash. I would truly recommend this product to those who have problem skin, oily skin, or for those who wear makeup and need a really thorough cleanser.
