La Vie Celeste Exfoliating Mother of Pearl Cleanser is a unique cleanser that uses Mother of Pearl and pink and white clays to gently cleanse and exfoliate. Free of soap (this cleanser does not foam), detergent, oils, fragrance and toxic chemicals, this cleanser is designed to leave skin soft, silky and hydrated. Suitable for all skin types.
Apply a dime size amount to damp skin in the AM and PM. Cleanse using gentle circular motions. Rinse.
TIA Review by Marta:
La Vie Celeste's cleanser has almost creamy texture that enables it to be massaged into the skin for a few luxurious moments before rinsing off. Doing so reveals a clean (but not squeakily so) complexion and skin that is lovely and soft to the touch.
The clays work as gentle exfoliators and pore closers, which is obvious really and makes me wonder why they aren't used in cleansers more often.
Mother of pearl is an important ingredient. It is also called nacre. Along with various amino acids and minerals, pearl is made up of calcium carbonate crystals and the protein conchiolin. Conchiolin is what gives pearls their rainbow-like luminescence, and is the primary source for this ingredient's anti-aging claims. As documented in the Journal of Cell Biology in 2006, conchilion acts like the protein keratin (which is found in skin, bones and hair), and has the ability to hydrate skin cells, promote skin cell metabolism, facilitate repair of damaged skin cells, and enhance peripheral circulation.
This cleanser doesn't stop there. Antioxidants also play a key role in the form tea, apple, gingko biloba and ginseng extracts. Better still, there are no nasty foaming agents (this is not a sudsy cleanser) or anything else to dislike.
