Safe on Eyes...What I like is that it's not a liquid you need to soak a cotton ball with and still end up rubbing and tugging your eye area in order to remove your makeup; it's a balm with some "body" and "slip" to it that allows you to gently massage your eye makeup off with your fingertips (you'll have a difficult time rubbing around a standard liquid remover with your fingers and still keeping it put on your eyelids)

What it is:
A daily gel cleanser with natural fruit exfoliant that thoroughly but gently lifts impurities and unclogs pores while leaving skin soft and hydrated.

Solutions for:
- Pores
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Oiliness

If you want to know more…
The Deep Cleanse oil-free gel lathers into a creamy foam to lift away dirt, oil, and impurities without over-drying. It cleanses with amino acids derived from silk gentle enough for even the most delicate skin, leaving skin soft, refreshed, and comfortably hydrated.

The formula harnesses the power of the Japanese luffa fruit, a natural beauty multitasker beloved by Japanese women for centuries. Ground fibers from the fruit exfoliate, helping to turn over dead skin cells while purifying and decongesting pores. The fruit extract also beautifies and conditions skin. Japanese wild rose works to visibly tighten pores and smooth skin texture, while Japanese leopard lily helps minimize excess oil.

What else you need to know:
Harvested under a full autumn moon, the water of luffa fruit has been prized as a favorite natural skincare ingredient in Japan since the Edo period. It is beloved for its clarifying and moisturizing properties. When dried and ground, the fruit gently exfoliates to purify and smooth skin texture—the original inspiration for the modern day loofah sponge. The Deep Cleanse harnesses this time-tested ingredient in this refreshing, easy-to-use daily exfoliating cleanser.

This pure, oil-free formula is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, dermatologist tested, and cruelty-free. It is formulated without synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, urea, DEA, of TEA.

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.
