PRODUCT: själ balans deep pore cleanser
Sometimes you truly get what you pay for as in the case of the sjal skincare line, a little on the pricey side, but so worth it. Take the själ balans deep pore cleanser for example. Priced at $70, the cleanser offers a wonderfully luxurious experience, scented beautifully and sensual to apply. According to sjal co-founder Kristin Petrovich the cleanser is “a potent, simple yet effective and time-saving cleansing ritual.”
Like all sjal products, balans incorporates precious minerals and gemstones for vibrational energy and clarity. In general, sjal’s philosophy is to combine ancient eastern medicines with European and Japanese biotechnology. Balans works on the cellular lever, enhancing the oxygen supply, reducing inflammation and boosting immunity. Considered a modern version of a classic deep pore cleanser, balans is lightweight, brightening and hydrating, and also regulates sebum and minimizes pores. Its precious ingredients include gold silver, germanium and pearl extract and rose quartz.
One caveat, because of its sebum controlling properties, balans is a little drying, so probably not the best option for dry skin types. But even though I tend to have dry skin, I find balans suits me well in the humid summer months.
Available at Barneys and select specialty stores in the U.S. and internationally, sjal can also be purchased from www.shopsjalskincare.com. A 15% discount is available at the website for BITB readers. Just use the code DIGITAL at checkout to get your discount.
