I have been incorporating this Clarifying Deep Cleansing Gel by Jurlique in my morning skincare routine over the past few weeks, and have been thoroughly pleased with it.
Jurlique claims that this gel cleanser "provides a multi-benefit function to take control of excess sebum production. With gentle exfoliating micro beads from natural Jojoba esters combined with Willow Bark, surface dirt, impurities and sebum are cleared while promoting increased cell turnover to improve surface texture and a fresh appearance."
When I first heard about this gel cleaner, I thought it's right up my alley, as I have problems with oily skin. However, I was a bit iffy about the whole "micro beads" thing, after learning about micro beads from personal care products ending up in our oceans and being eaten by sea life (read here for more information). I was assured by Jurlique that the micro beads in this gel are made from a natural ingredient (jojoba seeds), and is readily biodegradable and non-hazardous.
