California Naturel Gentle Cleansing Gel | Review

The beginning of a new year is often used as a time to make resolutions, many of which are overly ambitious and stringent, but for me I think that it is a good time to make adjustments to my skincare routine. This is the time for fine tuning, and for adding in more moisture and protection against the elements. I like to add in gentle, yet thorough cleansers, gentle exfoliators, hydrating serums, and richer moisturizers to keep my skin balanced and hydrated.

California Naturel Gentle Cleansing Gel is one of my favorite and most reached for cleanser these days because it is gentle, and the name suggests, and yet it thoroughly cleanses the skin without stripping it. It has a light lather that makes it an exquisite cleanser to use in conjunction with a Clarisonic, or to be used alone. It leaves my skin silky smooth, soft, supple and hydrated instead of feeling over-cleansed or stripped. It was formulated for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. It has the pleasant and faint smell of lavender, but it is quite subtle.

According to California Naturel,

This all natural cleanser thoroughly removes makeup and impurities without drying the skin. The organic Aloe Vera offers moisturizing benefits while the organic Soapberry cleanses and purifies, leaving the skin smooth and supple.
