We could all use more exfoliation in the winter, so I was excited to try the new True Nature Botanicals Pacific Exfoliating Cleanser ($48). The star ingredient, Actifoliate™, is a patented fungal extract that combines peptides with polysaccharides derived from the Mucor Miehei mushroom. That basically means you'll get noticeable results without any irritation (25%+ cell turnover). Chamomile, colloidal oat, kelp and Manuka honey are also added to soothe and nourish the skin.
Made with 92% organic ingredients, the thin gel-like formula is so gentle I could barely detect the mild grainy texture of adzuki bean powder. My face feels baby soft and hydrated each time I use it. The rose geranium scent adds a luxurious element, making cleansing a pleasurable experience. I can honestly say this is one of the best cleansers I've used that won't cause dry, tight or blotchy skin.
