Deluxe Sample given to me by the 3LAB Rep at an event.

This softly lathering gel cleanser features an oil-free formula that thoroughly removes makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. 3LAB Perfect Cleansing Gel consists of a concentrated formula that allows for a complete purification without wasting excess product. It also helps to remove dead skin cells to unclog pores, soften the skin and renew radiance. Ideal for all skin types.
My experience: I have been testing out 3LAB Perfect Cleansing Gel for about a month, and I have to say that it really might be the perfect cleansing gel! As described it softly lathers and does not strip the skin in the least bit- in fact it is so gentle that your skin feels moisturized and pampered after use, but thoroughly cleansed. I have used it alone and with a Clarisonic and both methods work remarkably well at removing every trace of makeup. 3LAB suggests that it combats dead skin by gently removing it, and I definitely would say that is a true account of what it does- in fact not only is my skin left thoroughly cleansed, smooth and hydrated, but it also feels so soft and supple after use. It really is a very concentrated formula, and initially I have to confess that I used far more than I realized that I needed. When I use PERFECT Cleansing Gel with my Clarisonic I only add two to three drops to the center of my brush and then use my finger to gently distribute the gel to the surface of the brush head since it allows me to use very little product-- the end result is always amazing, and once it reaches a pillowy lather those two to three drops provide enough product for my entire face and décolleté. I love this cleanser because it thoroughly cleans my combination skin, but does not strip it in the least bit. It also feels amazing on the skin, and leaves my cleansed face feeling as though it has already been moisturized when all I have done is washed my face!
    Ingredients: Water (Aqua/Eau), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Polyquaternium-10, Disodium Cocoamphodipropionate, Xylitylgoucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Allantoin, Polysorbate 20, Panthenol, Citric Acid, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Ginko Biloba Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphene, Caprylyl Glycol. 

    Overall assessment: This is a lovely cleansing gel, and while it has a luxury price tag so little is required per wash that a single bottle will last you a very very long time! It is always a challenge to find a great cleanser that thoroughly cleanses, doesn't strip the skin, and leaves it softer and more supple than before-- but 3LAB PERFECT Cleansing Gel achieves all of these things. It is well worth trying out, and if you are looking for a new cleanser this one is definitely worthy of your consideration.


  1. Yikes on the price. I'm using a 3Lab eye cream though and even after over a month I don't have a dent in it. It's amazing how little I need.

    1. They definitely have luxury prices straight across the board, but their products are sooooooo lovely! Which eye cream are you using? I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for a great eye cream!! Are you happy with it?

    1. I love this stuff! I have too many cleansers to justify buying another one right now, but I will definitely purchase a bottle when I have used a few more. It feels so amazing on the skin, and I think that you will love it with your Clarisonic! By the way, how are you liking your Clarisonic?

  3. Now, this is embarrassing. DH tidied up the house and I cannot find my Clarisonic! Still looking, though!

    1. Well, at least he tidied up the house! LOL! I hope that you find it soon! I can't wait to hear what you think of it!
