Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser
I’ve heard a lot about Mia Mariu over the years and I have participated in giveaways that featured their products, but this foaming gel cleanser is the first one I got a chance to try out for myself.
Product Description: According to the manufacturer, Mia Mariu’s Refreshing Foaming Cleanser is an extra gentle cleanser that is suitable for all skin types. It is non-irritating, paraben-free, sulfate-free and fragrance-free.
Key Ingredients: Aloe, marigold, sea kelp, sea lettuce, plus nourishing essential oils: orange peel, lemon, lime and grapefruit.
The product (pictured above) comes in an opaque plastic bottle with a pop-up dispenser that lets you control the amount of liquid that comes out so you can avoid rinsing your hard earned money down the drain because too much came out when you gave it a little squeeze. The cleanser is clear with average consistency for a facial cleanser. The directions are standard: wet your face, apply cleanser, use circular motions and rinse. I found that you get more of a creamy, foamy thing going on as opposed to suds.
As a rule (1) I don’t use any suds producing products on my face because they leave my skin feeling extra tight and drier than it already is. (2) I always use a Vitamin C serum and a moisturizer after cleansing.
For this review, I skipped the moisturizer step one day and I was pleasantly surprised that my skin didn’t feel extra tight at all. It was still smooth to the touch and while not as hydrated as it usually is with a moisturizer, it was okay.
The thing that impressed me the most though, was one time I got some of the product in my eye and although it stung a little, I didn’t get the burning, tear producing pain I expected. For me, that was the deal maker.
I recommend this product.
Note: This cleanser is not fragrance free. It has a citrus scent when you first squeeze it out. The scent is light and rather pleasant. It doesn’t last but you can’t miss it.
