All Natural Cleansers: Carol Priest

Gentle cleansing with Enzymes: Thelavicos

I’m usually very choosy when it comes to face wash and cleansers as I have dry to normal combination skin, more towards dry and not all of them work well on my skin. Foam based ones dries out my skin and cream-based ones make my T-zone too oily. Yet I want my face wash to be gentle and…
