It is no secret that I am a great fan of Sunday Riley products, and for those who know me you know just how obsessed I am with the entire range of skincare products. Ceramic Slip Cleanser is no exception, and in fact was the first cleanser that I tried from the line (I have since used all of them and will review the others later).
This is no ordinary cleanser- while it generates a gently foaming creamy lather it does not strip the skin in the least bit. I have found that most of the foaming cleansers that I have tried end up stripping my combination skin only to force a greater production of oil and sebum, but that is not the case here. Not only is this a gentle acting non-stripping formula, but it actually leaves the skin extraordinarily soft and supple.
While this extraordinary cleanser needs no help in boosting it's efficacy I have found it a decadent treat to use it in conjunction with my Clarisonic-- the two together yield astounding results. My skin is left so deeply cleansed that one would think that I had just gotten a facial.
Skin Type: Normal to Combination
Purpose: Ceramic Slip Cleanser, according to Sunday Riley, "Creates flawless skin + miniscule pores.A must-have in the pursuit of ceramic-smooth skin! Gently foaming, it purifies the skin, tightens pores, stimulates collagen and increases circulation. With natural essential oils to tone and balance the skin. The ultimate treat for normal and combination skin." These claims are not exaggerated in the least- this product actually does exactly what it claims to do.
