Colbert MD Balance Purifying Cleanser | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Colbert MD is an ultra-luxe skincare line that is the creation of critically acclaimed dermatologist, and founder of New York Dermatology Group, Dr. David Colbert. I have been using Dr. Colbert's skincare for many years now, and it steadfastly remains one of my very favorite skincare lines. This carefully edited collection features the highest quality products that boast enviably efficacy, delectable textures, and they are a true joy to use.
Colbert MD Balance Purifying Cleanser is an antioxidant-rich gel-based cleanser that is ultra refreshing, and it neither strips the skin, nor is it left taut and uncomfortable. The gel is itself transformed into a light lather with the introduction of water, and it provides the skin with gentle, mom-irritating exfoliation without any gritty exfoliating particles. Instead, Lactic Acid gently removes dead skin cells, while Ginkgo Biloba purifies the skin and provides natural anti-bacterial benefits. Furthermore, Allantoin, an anti-irritant, protects the skin while Bisabolol soothes and calms the skin.

I use this cleanser one of two ways: I apply it directly to my face and allow it to sit as a mask for a few minuted to allow the Lactic Acid to remove and dissolve dead skin cells, and then I apply warm water and gently massage in a circular motion to my face, neck and décolleté. When I don't need extra exfoliation, I simply apply a modest amount to my hands and activate the light lather before massaging it into my damp face, neck and décolleté. With either method, my skin is left silky-smooth, supple and as soft as a baby's bottom.

According to Colbert MD,

A refreshing cleanser with anti-aging benefits. The perfect preparation for the Colbert MD regimen.
Gently removes oil and surface impurities while providing a daily concentration of anti-aging benefits. Leaves skin smooth, supple and clean.

  1. I remember you writing about Colbert MD skincare in the past. In spite of the fact, that I always think of Stephen and his fake pharma advertising when I hear the brand name, Colbert MD is very appealing: serious skincare with great ingredients. I know I would love this cleanser

  2. I prefer this cleanser over the Radical and Shiseido cleansers. For some reason, I really do not like the Radical cream cleanser.

    1. Thanks, Julie! That means a lot coming from you! You definitely want to avoid it because of the Salicylic Acid, though!

  8. I have yet to try this brand, but this does sound like a cleanser I'd love. I've used something similar from Philosophy and find the daily exfoliation really benefits my skin.
