Marula Pure Marula Cleansing Oil is noted for its ability to:
- Dissolve impurities & makeup (including eye makeup)
- Clarify, oxygenate, and soften the skin
- Regenerate the skin
Use: This lovely cleansing oil can be used in the morning and the evening, and doesn't require double cleansing. Warm between 2-4 pumps of the Pure Marula Cleansing Oil into your hands, and then massage it into your face, neck and décolleté. African Botanics suggests massaging it for 1 minute in a circular motion concentrating on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. After massaging, the skin add a few drops of warm water in order to emulsify the oil, and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
To remove eye makeup: Pump a very small amount onto a moist cotton pad, and then gently hold it over the eyes for a few seconds. With a gentle sweeping motion you will see all of your makeup dissolve. Follow up with a clean water moistened cotton pad to remove the last bits of makeup residue. According to Julia, Pure Marula Cleansing Oil is even formulated to handle stubborn waterproof makeup! In fact, Julia herself uses it to remove her waterproof mascara by applying the oil with a water moistened moist cotton pad, then pressing it gently over her closed eye area for a few seconds, and then wiping it off slowly. Finally she repeats with a clean water moistened cotton pad to remove the last bits of cleansing oil and makeup.
After use my skin is left indescribably soft, silky smooth, supple, and balanced. It gently cleans my face without leaving behind any residue, and it never strips the skin. It also lifts dead skin cells by gently exfoliating, but it never irritates the skin. Furthermore, African Botanics suggests that it, "maintains optimal skin oxygenation while overcoming environmental stress. Minimizes redness, reduces irritation and stimulates microcirculation." It must also be noted that the sensory and tactile experience is soothing to the spirit, while nourishing to the skin courtesy of the warm vanilla scent that is commingled with the other botanicals.
I have used this cleansing oil when I wear no makeup, when I wear normal makeup, and per Julia's suggestion I applied a full face of makeup to see how her cleansing oil would fare. The result: there is no task too big or too small for this mighty cleansing oil! I don't generally wear heavy makeup, but the African Botanics Pure Marula Cleansing Oil effortlessly removed every single trace, and left my skin scrumptiously clean, balanced, and soft.
Marula Oil, which is indigenous to South Africa, is an antioxidant rich oil with high concentrations of Vitamin E and Omegas. Marula Oil is known to reduce redness, improve elasticity, improve firmness, and to mitigate transepidermal water loss.
Moringa Oil, another treasure from South Africa, gently cleanses the skin by lifting impurities without disturbing the acid mantle, skin's natural sebum layer, or by stripping the skin. Therefore, it effectively removes makeup and environmental pollutants without disturbing the skin. Moringa Oil also has an astringent quality that tones and balances the skin, helps to clear blemishes, and improves the appearance of enlarged pores.
Baobab Oil, which is rich in Omegas 3, 6 & 9, hydrates the skin and helps to regenerate skin cells.
Cape Chamomile, which is distilled from wild flowers that are harvested in the Fynbos region of South Africa, effectively reduces inflammation, skin irritation, and swelling.
AHA Fruit Acids from Bilberry, Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, and Sugar Cane serve to gently exfoliate the skin while reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, and by promoting firmness. Furthermore, these fruit acids aid in unclogging congested pores, and improving the overall appearance of the skin by creating a smoother more youthful texture.
$60.00 for 3.4 oz. This amazing product will launch in March 2014, and will be available from African Botanics, SpaceNK at Bloomingdale's and SpaceNK. (Affiliate Links)
