Almond Milk and Papaya Enzyme Cleanser
When papaya meets almond milk, it creates a symphony of unmatched cleanliness on the skin. A very mild exfoliator, this cleanser helps to clear away gunk built up on the epidermis but does not compromise the integrity of skin at all. A great choice for all skin types, especially oily, clogged skin.
While this cleanser is very gentle, it does contain exfoliating enzymes, so care should be taken when introducing it into your current routine. Rotate out other exfoliants or use them fewer times per week to avoid over-exfoliation. Some skin can take more exfoliation, so be aware of what your skin is telling you and enjoy!
This product can be used 3 to 4 times a week, up to once per day. You will want to give your skin a break once a week if using this product daily.
Method of Application
Dispense about a dime to nickel size amount of cleanser into the palm of your hand, drip warm/hot water into your palm then rub hands together to emulsify. Pat into skin, wipe off gently with a wet, warm cotton or bamboo clean washcloth.
Do not massage into your skin. Only cleanse in the A.M. if necessary.

This is so absolutely fantastic! It’s the very best exfo I’ve used! When the sample came with my last order, I was hesitant to try it, since historically my rosacea hasn’t been at all cool w/enzymes. I decided to try it anyway & I’m SO happy I did. I was overdue for exfoing & this did an incredible job. I massaged a smallish blob into wet skin for a minute (wet b/c the cleanser looked dryish, but it wasnt.), then let it sit for another few minutes. No instructions came with it, so I improvised :-) When I rinsed it off my skin was really smooth & soft; there were still some areas with tiny bumps from clogs, but when I looked in the mirror I could see that the enzymes had reduced the bumps from rounded shapes above the pores surface down to thin little tags. I couldn’t believe how smooth my skin was-there was a clear delineation between where Id used the cleanser & where I hadn’t. I didn’t use it on my neck b/c I had a rash that I didn’t want to chance irritating, but I think this would’ve calmed it.
Best of all, my skin tone was VERY calm & even, with none of the redness that other enzyme exfos had caused. I’ve never used an exfo that produced such great results after only one use. The pumpkin/papaya mask came close, but I love this one better
I tried it just last night and like you, thought it looked like it would be a dry consistency just from looking at it through the container, but I was pleasantly surprised at how creamy it was. I liked the texture of it on my face, and my skin felt so smooth afterward.
I like this also. I found it to be gentle (gentler than Pumpkin/Papaya) and it left my skin very soft.
I received this sample in my parcel too and used it 2night, I loved the creamy texture as well as the light smell.
My skin also fell right in love with this cleanser! It was very calming and left my skin silky soft ;-)
