M-61 Perfect Cleanse Gentle Vitamin E Foaming Face Cleanser

M-61 is one of those brands for me that sort of flies under the radar, even though they’re incredibly top notch and I seem to fall in love with all of their products. My latest discovery from the brand is the Perfect Cleanse Gentle Vitamin E Foaming Face Cleanser.

This is a gentle foaming Vitamin E gel cleanser with lavender and green tea — it basically smells like a spa in a bottle, and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed, but also silky smooth. This definitely lives up to its name, and is an incredibly gentle experience.

Straight out of the bottle this is clear like water. Apply a bit to your face and gently rub and slowly it turns white, showing you that it’s working, but it doesn’t get super sudsy, and the lather is incredibly fine. The scent isn’t overpowering, which I really like, and is perfect if you have sensitive skin.

I liked to use this twice — lather, rinse, repeat — and I really felt like I was getting more of a spa treatment. My skin isn’t sensitive though, so if that’s what you need then maybe stick to one ride on that merry-go-round.

$26 for 8.4oz bottle
