Honest Beauty | Gentle Gel Cleanser & 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask: Review
Founded by Jessica Alba in 2011, Honest Beauty, the beauty subsidiary of The Honest Company, is finally available in Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart. Made with clean, cruelty-free, and eco-conscious ingredients, Honest Beauty offers a nice array of skincare and makeup products. In the upcoming weeks, I'll be giving you a closer look at some of the brand's skincare products and I am starting today with the bestselling Gentle Gel Cleanser (C$24.99) and 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask (C$29.99).

Honest Beauty | Gentle Gel Cleanser: Review
Honest Beauty | Gentle Gel Cleanser
Honest Beauty | Gentle Gel Cleanser (C$24.99 for 150 ml):
A bestseller from Honest Beauty, the Gentle Gel Cleanser comes in a simple and sleek pump bottle. Formulated with a gentler alternative of sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), the cleanser is infused with calendula and chamomile extract to calm the skin. The gel texture is not super thick and lathers nicely to efficiently remove dirt and oil. The cleanser will remove most makeup but I would recommend double cleansing if you wear a lot of waterproof eye makeup. The formulation has a very subtle essential oil fragrance. In fact, Honest Beauty lists exactly what essential oils are used as the fragrance so if you can check to see if you have any sensitivities. Overall, this is a lovely gentle gel cleanser that's non-drying yet deeply cleansing, perfect for all skin types!

Honest Beauty | 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask
Honest Beauty | 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask (C$29.99 for 85 ml):
Formulated with cleansing Jeju volcanic ash, kaolin clay, bentonite clay, activated charcoal, and nourishing manuka honey, shea butter, and sea buckthorn oil, this is a clay mask designed for all skin types to remove any impurities and excess sebum. The lightweight formulation has a creamy texture that spreads nicely on the skin. Unlike most clay masks, the 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask has a softer texture that won't dry out the skin, making it great for even the most sensitive skin. The mask has no discernable smell but it is formulated with the same fragrance blend of essential oils as the Gentle Gel Cleanser. As someone who uses a lot of clay masks, I find this formulation a bit too nourishing than purifying. However, if you have dry or sensitive skin, the 3-in-1 Detox Mud Mask may just be your perfect clay mask!
