Mandy Aftel, the genius behind Aftelier Perfumes, just released Aftelier Perfumes Berry Cleansing Balm, and I wanted to share the details of this new creation before I review it.
According to Aftelier Perfumes,
The fresh berry scent is from the powerhouse trio of cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry seed oils. The rich golden color of the balm is from the kpangnan and berry oils, and it has a luxurious creamy texture and consistency that melts on contact with your skin.
The carefully chosen ingredients are:
- Raw Shea Butter – full of vitamins A & E and fatty acids, protects and moisturizes the skin.
- Kpangnan Butter - has a silky texture, with high amounts of stigmasterol, an anti-inflammatory plant sterol.
- Raspberry Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Blueberry Seed Oil – with their delicious berry aromas, these oils are high in vitamins A & E and Omega 3, 6, & 9 fatty acids. Good for aging skin, they are rejuvenating & regenerative and help hold in moisture.
Directions: Scoop out a dime-sized amount of Berry Cleansing Balm onto your dry hands with the included spatula. Massage thoroughly onto your dry face, easing tension and drawing out dirt and toxins. Remove by pressing clean DRY washcloth into the skin. Do NOT rub.
"There’s a synergy in the base oils chosen for my cleansing balm and cleansing oil, and the berry and geranium scents layer beautifully. Their individual properties are enhanced when used together, making them more effective and nurturing.. I like to do a dry double oil cleanse on my face in 2 steps, starting with this Berry Cleansing Balm and following with my Geranium Cleansing Oil."
