The Le Mieux At Home Spa Day Duo: Exfoliating Cleansing Gel and Hyaluronic Shea Mask | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

There is nothing that I relish more when I am at home on a day off than great spa treatments. On those days, however, when I am short on time but still want to give my skin a special treat– I can get spa results in a mere two steps courtesy of Le Mieux.

Their Exfoliating Cleansing Gel, while formulated for combination, oily and acne prone skin, is ultra effective for deep cleansing and non-abrasive exfoliation. When used in the context of an at-home spa facial, it will work wonders on most skin types without stripping. If you have drier skin, then I would only use it as a periodic treatment to clean congested pores and remove dead skin cells. I apply a dime size amount to my face, neck and décolleté and leave it on for a few minuted in order to allow the Beta Acid to dissolve dead skin cells, and then I add warm water to activate the citrusy lather and rinse.

According to Le Mieux, their Exfoliating Cleansing Gel is:

Specially formulated for combination, oily and blemish prone skin, the Exfoliating Cleansing Gel is a deep pore cleanser that can be used daily. Infused with the natural exfoliate, Beta Acid, this oil-free cleanser helps eliminate blemishes and inhibit new breakouts by removing excess oil and dead skin cells. Formulated with 13 botanical extracts, the Exfoliating Cleansing Gel soothes and restores balance to the skin.

Lather a small amount in moistened hands and gently massage onto face and neck, avoiding eye areas. Rinse with warm water or remove with face cloth. Pat dry. Use in the morning and at night.

Best For:
Skin types: Normal, combination, oily
Skin conditions: Acne, blemishes, sun damage

Ingredients: Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Water, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Leaf Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Symphytum Officinale (Comfrey) Leaf Extract, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Capryloyl Glycine, Sarcosine, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Bark Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Powder, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Extract, Glucose, Glucose Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase

While my skin is still warm, directly after rinsing off the Exfoliating Cleansing Gel, I slather the Hyaluronic Shea Mask all over my face, neck, décolleté and hands and leave it on my skin for anywhere between 15-30 minutes. I then massage my skin with warm water and then remove the mask with a warm washcloth. Afterward I apply my favorite serum, face oil and moisturizer (and sunscreen if  it is daytime).

According to Le Mieux, their Hyaluronic Shea Mask is:

Formulated with the moisture-binding hyaluronic acid, this deep conditioning mask prevents water loss, dryness and roughness, providing intensive, long-lasting hydration. A rejuvenating blend of soothing oils and botanical extracts deeply nourish dry, damaged and mature skin, while improving elasticity.

With thousands of algae-derived ingredients used in cosmetics and skincare, Le Mieux has incorporated the best of this sea treasure into products to cleanse, protect and reverse the signs of aging.

Featuring peptides, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids, algae helps increase cell renewal in addition to stimulating collagen production and the creation of elastin, which gives skin that snap-back, youthful quality.  This powerful ingredient can also help provide protection against cell damage induced by ultraviolet rays, while inhibiting the enzymes that break down elastin.

STEP 1) After cleansing, evenly apply the mask onto the face with an applicator.
STEP 2) Leave on for 15-20 minutes.
STEP 3) Gently massage the skin with warm water and remove with a wet sponge or a cloth.
STEP 4) Follow with toner and/or moisturizer.
