[sample/affiliate] I’m not sure how I missed this cleansing stick because it’s not all that new but it’s really the thing I’ve been looking for. I do several long weekend trips a year and the mini things I always struggle for to beat the liquid allowance are hair care and cleansers.
This Matcha Tea infused solid balm has exactly the right credentials to be my go-to take away. It’s very refreshing on the skin with a slight cooling feel (perfect for anywhere sunny and hot to take the heat out of your skin) and composed as a light oil once it hits your complexion. It doesn’t have much slip which is the only down-side but formulas for solid cleansers walk a tightrope between being liquid and firm with a tipping point that can’t be breached. You need to work the stick over your face, thoroughly, and then wipe away with a hot cloth. It didn’t quite meet perfect requirements for mascara, but I felt it did a nice job in removing the small amount of other make up I was wearing. I can see it performing well on sweaty skin that needs to feel thoroughly clean and cooled. The accompanying Toning Stick isn’t something I’d use particularly but it’s a useful skin cooler and especially good for a post gym skin pep as it contains witch hazel as well as matcha. Both are more geared in formulation towards oily skin.
