The temperatures are dropping outside and you definitely need to protect yourself from the harsh weather by layering up! But one thing people forget is their skin. What you’re using to cleanse your face could be great in the summer but could really dry out your skin come winter time. But that’s a lot of trouble to find two different products for different seasons! Plus, think of all the ingredients that are in your cleansers and soaps. I’ll give you a few moments to check them now.
To make things simpler, we have Aqua Aria Porcelain Cleansing Bar. It only has four ingredients. That’s right. FOUR. Now, you must be thinking that how could a product with only four ingredients work? I myself was dubious at first. But then I thought to myself… all the DIY home cleansing tools they have on Pinterest have a MAXIMUM of four ingredients and work better (plus they are safer). Wouldn’t it only make sense to use even less ingredients/chemicals on our own FACES? Our skin is definitely more delicate than the bathroom tiles!
The four ingredients in Aqua Aria are as follows:
1. Bentonite. I’ve never heard of this before until I looked it up. Thanks to having four ingredients, it wasn’t really that hard to google four things. But anyway, it turns out Bentonite has been used by many people supporting herbal remedies and even in spas! It has calming properties for skin itching and just used to improve skin quality in general through purification!
2. Sekken Soji. This is a 100% plant derived cleansing ingredient that does not strip moisture from your skin which is exactly what I definitely need now.
3. Squalene. Squalene is a unique oil that naturally occurs in skin and helps to stabilize the structure of skin. It helps maintain skin moisture by lubricating the skin surface.
4. Glycerin. Also called glycerol or glycerine; it is present in all natural lipids (fats), whether animal or vegetable. It is a humectant and extremely hygroscopic, meaning it readily absorbs water from other sources. So, in part, glycerin works because of its ability to attract water from the environment and from the lower layers of skin increasing the amount of water in the surface layers of skin.
I’ve been using Aqua Aria for three weeks now and I haven’t seen a drastic difference in my skin however, it has reduced the amount of time I spend washing my face yet I know my face is clean. Normally, I use make up remover (or wipes) for my face, then I wash it with cleanser, and sometimes, even then, when I use the toner, there’s still make up remnants. (My foundation really gets in there) But with Aqua Aria, I used it to remove my make up (I washed my face twice as suggested if you’re removing make up) and I did the toner test and – nothing! No foundation residue. Of course, it’s not an eye make up remover cause then all other brands would be out of business.
Overall, I’m happy with the Aqua Aria Porcelain Cleansing Bar! It really gives you a squeaky clean without leaving your face dry! You can definitely use it to remove make up but you may need some help with an eye make up remover for those tough mascaras.
It is, however, a little pricey compared to the other brands. At $68, it may be a bit steep for people who just want to try it. So, I’m fortunate enough to have a promo code. If you enter aaandrea10 on the Aqua Aria website, you will be able to try it with a 10% discount.
