BIOELEMENTS TWICE DAILY BAR – In an ever growing supply of facial cleansers, this is a tried and true favorite of mine. I have been using this bar, and many other products from this line for the last 10 years. Gentle cleansing agents blended with natural plant extracts produce a soap-free lather that leaves your skin sparkly clean, soft, and comfortable. The bar comes with a small round sponge that when used (wet) with the bar, provides a gentle massage and light exfoliation. One great advantage of this bar over other soap-free cleansers, is that your skin never feels tight or dull after you wash.
This bar contains ginseng, sumac, gotu kola, dong quai, and watercress, all to support and strengthen your skin. Other natural plant botanicals in this bar include lavender, sage oil, and clary sage oil, all to promote healing and soothing of skin.
Like a glycerin bar, if continually exposed to water, this bar will disappear in a hurry. Also, the size of it when it is brand new is a bit too large for my hands, making it unwieldy for me. When I get a new bar, I use a knife to slice off a small amount of the bar. I use that smaller piece until I need more, and this way, the bar lasts a really long time. It also makes it handy for traveling.
This is a staple in my facial cleansing routine. It has two partners in crime. They are BioElements Moisture Positive Cleanser for when my combination skin is feeling a it more on the dry side, and the Flash Foam Cleanser, for when I need a deeper clean with more exfoliation. The latter uses pumpkin, papaya, and pineapple enzymes to pump up the cleansing, and as you can imagine, smells fantastic.
Bioelements professional formula integrity insures their products contain no artificial colorants, no synthetic fragrance, they are never tested on animals, and they contain organic botanicals.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (Gotta Get It) – this product is fabulous on its own, and incredible when partnered with other products from this line.
