Riad of Aromas Cherry and Juniper Berry Gentle Hydrating Cleanser – 100ml (£16.00)
This is my second review for Riad of Aromas, the Moroccan influenced, British brand, making a big impact on the natural product market. Let me introduce you to their alcohol free, Cherry and Juniper Berry cream cleanser.
The airless pump helps preserve the natural ingredients, without the need for synthetic chemicals. Dispense this naturally white, cream cleanser onto your fingers, massage all over the face, then rinse off with warm water. Best results are achieved when used in combination with the unbleached muslin cloth, included in the box. Rinse the cloth under hot water, ring out and wipe off. When used like this, a mild exfoliation is achieved, resulting in your skin feeling really clean. Make up wearers should particularly benefit from this.
The biggest ingredients in the cleanser are water, apricot seed oil, castor oil and sweet cherry oil. Cherry oil is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E and full of antioxidants. Then we see plant derived glycerine, moisturising shea butter and coconut derived cetearyl glucoside. Sodium anisate is an antimicrobial preservative derived from corn and fennel.
Natural source vitamin E and juniper oil, which has antiseptic qualities to help alleviate spot prone, oily and congested skin conditions. Sage extract, sodium levulinate which is another natural preservative, peppermint oil, lactic acid, polimer in the form of carbomer and finally an ester in the form of naturally derived glyceryl oleate.
Suitable for vegans and not tested on animals, this cream cleanser is a great natural alternative to the synthetic chemical packed cleansers, available on the high market. The mix of natural ingredients breaks down oil and grime and leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed. Highly Del Brown Approved!
