Let’s celebrate National Blueberry Month!
July marks the celebration of Blueberries – nature’s very own squishy little balls of joy and happiness, and what better way to celebrate these super berries than to introduce to everyone our favourite berry in the form of a cleanser!
Blueberries have long been known as a great source of Vitamin K. They also contain Vitamin C, Manganese and are highly valued for their levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants are super important in our day-to-day lives because they’re compounds that fight free radicals in the body. Free radicals can cause cell damage, and antioxidants can protect against chronic diseases and cancer. But what are some of the other benefits? Blueberries have phytonutrients to promote optimal nutrition and many studies show that blueberries inhibit pro-inflammatory chemicals behind acne and increase anti-inflammatory chemicals which help to soothe damage and prevent acne, wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots.
I don’t know about you, but with all the goodness that blueberries have to offer, it makes me basically want to grab a handful of them and rub them all over my face. My prayers were answered when Glow Recipe introduced their Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser.
We tried it, tested it and absolutely loved it and here’s why:
The Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser is essentially a 2-in-1 product known to not only remove makeup but also a cleanser, developed to keep skin feeling nice and hydrated while eliminating the need to use a hydrating toner. It contains blueberry extract which delivers antioxidants and AHA which clarifies and removes dead skin cells. The cleanser itself is a gentle foaming cleanser which works to melt away makeup and impurities to maximise the efficacy of skincare to follow.
There are many ways to use this product:
- Use as a cleanser by applying a dime size amount (or as much as you feel necessary keeping in mind that this is a foaming cleanser) and create a lather. For a deeper cleanse, massage gently over your entire face including your neck, rinse thoroughly, and follow with the remainder of your skincare routine.
- Use as a wash off mask by applying a generous layer to clean dry skin, add water to lather and rinse off completely after approximately five to eight minutes (or longer if desired)
Known to contain:
A great source of antioxidants to help strengthen and clarify the skin and reduce visible signs of acne giving us healthier more radiant skin.
What to love:
The cleanser itself is a gel consistency and has visible blueberry extract that helps to gently exfoliate and smooth the surface of the skin. Not only does it feel good, but it also smells good with its light blueberry scent. It’s great to remove lighter makeup but will take a little bit more to remove waterproof makeup. The cleanser, unlike many other foaming cleansers, foams up gradually and gently which is great as it doesn’t strip your skin or leave it feeling overly squeaky clean.
Which skin type is best suited for this cleanser:
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Enlarged pores
- Acne-prone skin
