The creamy consistency doesn’t just feel nice, but also rinses very well. The smell is amazing and the lemony scent gives a fresh feel to your skin. Even though it’s noticeable, the smell isn’t going to stay for long time onto your skin so you can combine the cleanser with other cosmetic products.
What are the goods and bads to keep in mind?
The good things are many so listing them is a bit of a challenge:

- It’s hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types
- It cleanses well the skin, but it’s gentle with your skin
- It’s pH balanced
- It moisturizes the skin and leaves an amazing fresh feel

We’re not that worried about the inherent flaws as it’s impossible to find the perfect cleanser:
- It’s not quite the cheapest cleanser that you can find
- Some are surprised with the rather small recipient, considering the price tag.
- One may not like the fact the cleanser doesn’t lather
Our final verdict?
The cleanser is far from being the cheapest choice for the black skin. As it doesn’t just cleanse well your skin, but also moisturizes and hydrates it, leaving it healthier and younger looking, the cleanser stands out from the crowd on so many levels.
Not only pH-balanced, by also made in our USA, the cleanser is very close to being the perfect cleanser, as long as you’re willing to pay the extra buck for it.
