Beauty Review: Pacifica Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash
I have used Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash religiously for about two years now, and I still highly recommend that cleanser (read my full review). However, when Pacifica released their Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash specifically formulated for oily and/or acne-prone skin, I knew I had to try it!
Pacifica is a 100% vegan and cruelty-free line, and all of their products I've tried have been of the utmost quality. It is a brand I trust, and a brand I return to time and time again. Not only do they have face cleansers and other skin care products like moisturizers and makeup remover wipes, but they also have a full makeup line, perfumes (they make some of my favorites!), and they have also recently announced they are releasing more skin care products as well as hair products! The Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash is one of their newer products in their expanded skin care line.
The Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash is fortified with super green phytonutrients including kale, seaweed and blue seakale along with the benefits of tropical mangosteen fruit and coconut water. It also contains bentonite clay, which helps improve the appearance of oily skin. I use bentonite clay as a mask every so often when I need a skin pick-me-up, so I was really thrilled to see it incorporated into this facial cleanser.
I love keeping my skin care routine simple, so it is a lifesaver how Pacifica has combined the different elements of cleansing, toning, and purifying into one single cleanser. The Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash is formulated for oily/acne-prone skin, so not only does it give you a thorough cleanse by removing makeup, toxins, and impurities, but it is also specifically made to tone and improve oily skin. Since I have oily skin, I was ecstatic that Pacifica was making a face cleanser especially for my skin type.
The Kale Detox cleanser has a pleasing scent that reminds me of dewy clovers or fresh-cut grass (remember in the '90s when Gap had that "Grass" scent? It was my favorite and reminds me of that, only more natural!). It is a really refreshing scent that is invigorating in the morning and relaxing at night. It feels soothing going on, lathers up well, and does a wonderful job at removing makeup (even eye makeup!) and clearing up my oily skin. It seems to keep my skin from getting as greasy as it normally does, even after applying moisturizer (I use Pacifica's Dreamy Youth Day and Night Face Cream), which is a big bonus in a cleanser.
I really love Pacifica's new Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash, and it might just dethrone my much-loved Sea Foam cleanser! I found mine at Target for $9.99, but Pacifica products can also be purchased through Pacifica's site, Ulta stores or online, or other fine retailers (full list of locations can be found on Pacifica's site), or through Amazon!
