We all know how important it is to have a face cleansing routine that leaves your skin clean, balanced, and fresh, right? Well if you’re part of this group, then congrats to you!
It’s true. The cleansing step is incredibly important and, sad to say can make or break your entire routine. Depending on the current state of your skin and what your future skin goals are your cleansing routine can either be the wind beneath your wings or send your hopes and dreams of flawless skin plummeting down to the ground.
The best way to have a great skin cleansing regimen?
By being knowledgeable about what’s in your cleanser, of course! Join Lavelier as we take a closer look at our Biology Mousse Cleanser. You’ll learn how it is incredibly beneficial, for not only keeping your skin clean but also getting it prepped and primed for the next steps in your skincare routine. The Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser is brimming with ingredients that’ll thoroughly cleanse your skin while keeping your skin barrier intact and protected. Let’s learn more!
Lavelier Reviews: Biology Mousse Cleanser – What is it?
The Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser was created to cleanse and refresh your skin. It has a lightweight, mousse-like texture that turns into a rich and lush lather. Watch as makeup, dirt, and excess oil is dissolved from your skin, revealing a clean and healthy complexion.
What you use to cleanse your skin plays a big role in the effectiveness of the skincare steps you follow up with. Failure to clean your skin in a safe and successful manner can result in the rest of your products not being effective.
Think about it. Would you apply wood cleaner on a piece of wooden furniture that was covered in crumbs and debris? We think not (or at least we hope not)!
Your skin has to be clean in order for any of your products to do what they were designed to do. Without a clean slate, those ingredients won’t be able to penetrate your pores.
Lavelier Reviews: Biology Mousse Cleanser – What’s in it?
Let’s take a look at some of the cutting-edge ingredients in our Biology Mousse Cleanser:
Red Coral Seaweed
The premiere ingredient in the Biology Mousse Cleanser is our Red Coral Seaweed. In case you didn’t know, seaweed is incredibly beneficial for the skin. By incorporating it in your skin regimen can greatly improve the quality of your skin which is why we love using it in our Biology Mousse Cleanser.
Among other things, seaweed is incredibly rich in calcium which is essential in keeping our skin barrier in tip top shape. How you may ask? Calcium aids in regulating a lot of skin functions which includes the formation of the skin barrier. The skin barrier actually includes various other barriers within it but we’ll focus on the permeability barrier. The permeability barrier handles the content of water and balances the skin. This is where our Biology Mousse Cleanser saves the day!
By including Red Coral Seaweed in our skin products, we are able to formulate a product that not only cleans the skin but does it with the intention of balancing the skin. This is instead of leaving it dry and tight like some cleansers tend to do.
We know that one of the biggest complaints of cleansers is them being too harsh. This results in dry skin that then ends up producing extra oil. This makes the skin appear slick and greasy. The Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser does an incredible job of giving you that fresh feeling while making sure to keep your skin balanced and ready for the next step!
Willow Bark Extract
Next on our ingredient list is Willow Bark Extract and you may already be mildly familiar with it. Willow Bark Extract is used in many skincare products because of its incredible ability to tackle both aging skin concerns AND oily skin! So, individuals that have mature skin and adult acne (it happens, we know) will find this cleanser to be a great way to kill two birds with one stone. Sorry, birds.
The reason why Willow Bark Extract is so great is because of the chemical salicin. Salicin can affect us both internally and externally, and both are for the better! When taken orally, salicin acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, similar to aspirin. When applied on the skin, salicin has the ability to have a strong effect on signs of aging. This means wrinkles, loss of firmness, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
By incorporating this into the Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser, we get to attack both aging skin and skin that’s prone to acne, a win-win!
Shea Butter Ethyl Esters
We know, we know…we had you at the “shea butter” and lost you at the “ethyl esters”. Allow us to explain!
Shea Butter is great for maintaining skin structure and health. More specifically, Lavelier loves it for its ability to enhance the production of collagen, meaning fewer wrinkles. It delivers a load of antioxidants while also serving some strong moisturizing properties. Sounds like an anti-aging skin care dream, right?
The “esters” are emollient esters that are derived from Shea Butter. They are not as rich as full-on Shea Butter, so your skin is left soft, smooth, and silky. You won’t experience that heavy, greasy feeling that can sometimes be associated with Shea Butter.
We love incorporating this into the Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser because we know the biggest complaint after cleansing is dryness. By including Shea Butter, we prioritize keeping the skin moisturized and hydrated, in addition to providing a thorough cleanse.
If you can’t get enough of shea butter, you’ll also find it in the Lavelier Seascape Body Butter.
There’s no telling how many different skin care products use Glycerin, and for good reason! Glycerin has a lot of different benefits, but the biggest is its ability to attract and retain water/moisture in the skin. You may be thinking, oh ok, so this must be good only for dry skin, right?
NO! Remember, hydration is for all skin types. It is imperative to keep the signs of aging at bay and maintaining an overall healthy complexion.
Lavelier knows this, which is why we make it a point to include this potent ingredient in our cleanser. Upon finishing with our cleanser, you’ll notice your skin feels clean and moisturized, instead of gradually becoming dry and tight.
In addition to helping with water retention, glycerin also has the power to act as an exfoliant, aid in repairing the skin barrier, and can help with minor skin irritaitons, too.
Lavelier knows that people have to tackle a lot when it comes to skin issues, and starting at the first step of your skin routine can make the process so much easier.
The reason for the inclusion of Argan Oil is because of the wonderful way that plant oils can affect our skin. While many are aware of the various plant oils that are out there, they don’t always know exactly what it is that makes these oils so great!
For our cleanser, Argan Oil aids in a few ways:
- Anti-aging properties, specifically in maintaining the elasticity of the skin
- Rich in antioxidants
- Improving moisture retention
All of this is a huge win for an effective cleanser that both cleans and can help you on your anti-aging skin-care journey.
Lavelier Reviews: Biology Mousse Cleanser – How to Use
It may be rich and potent, but the Biology Mousse Cleanser is still gentle enough to be used daily. You can even use it twice a day; in the morning and at night.
Wet your face with lukewarm or warm water. You never want to wash your face, hair, or body with extremely hot water. All this does is speed up the aging process and encourage dry skin.
Don’t go to the extreme and use cool or cold water, though. This completely takes away the effect that water at an increased temperature has when cleansing the skin.
You only need a small amount of product to form a lather, giving this cleanser a long life on your bathroom counter. While there are a lot of different products that you can use to wash your face, it’ll probably always be best to use your fingertips.
The reason for this is because you ultimately have more control. Washcloths, scrubbing brushes, and other items can be great for some and can cause irritation for others. Figure out what works for you to be on the safe side.
Massage the cleanser gently into your skin for no more than sixty seconds. This will allow the product to not only soften the skin, but also break down the sebum that is trapped in your pores.
Rinse your skin with lukewarm water and end it with a cool water rinse. You may have heard about this when conditioning your hair, but the effects work for your skin too. Using cool or cold water has the ability to close up those pores and give you a healthy complexion following washing.
Dry your face with patting motions. Never, ever drag a towel across your skin to get it dry. Follow with our Marine Facial Toner, designed to leave your skin refreshed and balanced. Next, apply the Lavelier Marine Deep Moisturizer, formulated with Green Tea, another anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. That’s right, anti-aging down the whole line!
Still Not Convinced?
So now you know why the Lavelier Biology Mousse Cleanser is a fantastic product to include in your skincare regimen and how easy it is to incorporate it. While we will say that people with normal to dry skin may enjoy this cleanser a little more than others, it can truly be great for all skin types.
More importantly, it is gentle enough to be used everyday. Yet it’s still powerful enough to prove effective in your skincare routine. It’s not everywhere that you can find a cleanser that contains ingredients that have the ability to tackle so many different skin issues.
Preparing your skin against anti-aging takes more than slapping on an eye cream. It means understanding your skin’s current state and assessing what needs to be modified. This could mean introducing a different cleanser, serum, or moisturizer into your regimen. It could even mean abandoning a couple of lifestyle habits, such as going to bed late or being inconsistent with your skincare.
All in all, your facial routine, from cleanser to SPF, means something. It is imperative that you provide your skin with effective, safe, and skin-loving ingredients that actually help.
Let Lavelier take your skin to the next level with quality products that can bring you a healthier and happier complexion, no matter what skin concern you’re trying to tackle.
