Product of the Week! - Calm Gentle Daily Cleanser
This line has four different products specifically "formulated to help provide hydrating relief from tightness, dryness and discomfort. With 80% food grade ingredients, these extra gentle formulas help calm and soothe sensitive skin that is easily irritated. Non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, colorant-free, and allergy- and dermatologist-tested, Calm has soothing botanicals to nurture and moisturize without blocking pores."
The Calm line carries a Gentle Daily Cleanser, Soothing Facial Serum, Gentle Moisturizer, and Soothing Eye Gel.
This week we're focusing on the Cleanser:
"This extra-gentle, sulfate-free cleanser, formulated with only the most essential ingredients, gently washes away makeup, excess oil and dirt without irritating or over-drying the skin. Use day or night to leave skin feeling clean and refreshed."
The cleanser is a very mild face cleanser that if soap free, dye free, and fragance free. 50% of Americans suffer from Sensitive skin and it's hard to find products that not only clean well, but do so without stripping the skin of it's natural moisture or leaving it irritated. It's also only $24!
My Calm Line Experience:
I have never been one to say that I have 'sensitive' skin, but I've always had problem skin. For as long as I can remember, I have had these small bumps all along my forehead and temples. Also, I have very large pores, especially on my nose. I constantly struggle with pimples, clogged pores, and the bumps on my head. It's been very frustrating. When I started using this line though, I observed an almost overnight change to my face, within a week my skin was noticeably different! I picked up the line at the Arbonne Conference and when I returned home after a couple days, one of my coworkers even told me, "Wow, your face looks great! It's so much clearer." I gushed, "It's Arbonne!"
By using the Calm line, my skin is smoother, I have less problems with my pores, and I'm not embarrassed by it anymore.After I wash my face with the Calm Gentle Cleanser, my faces feels clean and refreshed. I never have that tight feeling.
It's funny, the first time I used it, I thought to myself, "Fragrance free? Surely not. It's from Botanicals, it must have some sort of scent." However, as I pumped a little bit into my hand, I sniffed it, and truly it smelled like nothing! I couldn't believe it. Even after massaging it over my face, I still noticed no smell whatsoever!
The Gentle Cleanser comes in a pump bottle. I usually hate pump bottles because I travel a lot and it's annoying to have to pack everything in plastic baggies or open up your bag to find whatever products has squished out all over your stuff. If you don't get a chance to get the travel kit, luckily, this little guy clicks closed. I can comfortably turn the head with a little kick and throw it in my purse and not worry about my purse contents getting messy.
