I’ve been implementing this method for the last month and found 2 clay-based cleansers I like. The first is the Bioelements All Things Pure Cleanser that was provided by Bioelements. This cleanser can be used on all skin types and it will be especially appreciated by people with dry and dehydrated skin who also suffers from large/congested pores. The secret is in the milky texture: they combined clay with skin-nourishing emollients so it doesn’t have the typical chalky feel many clay products have. Believe it or not, the jojoba oil in this product will actually aid the betonite clay in drawing out the impurities. This also has a very pleasing fragrance-free type of scent that reminds me of oatmeal and almond milk. The mild coconut-derived cleansing ingredient leaves skin very clean and supple.
How I use Bioelements All Things Pure Cleanser: Right when I wake up, I massage this cleanser onto a dry face (still shiny and oily from a night’s rest). I proceed to brush my teeth so this cleanser is left undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes. Finally, I rinse my skin with lukewarm water and finish with a splash of cool water. I immediately follow with my appropriate Garden of Wisdom serum.
