LIFTLAB Purify + Clarify Cleanser

Our Rating: 0 stars

Working as a foaming cleanser, a gentle exfoliator and a detoxifying facial mask, there isn't much LIFTLAB Purify + Clarify ($65 in the shop) can't do for your skin. Using a patented damage-reversing combination of Cell Protection Proteins from the Arctic, this multifaceted item works to encourage cell turnover, while enriching and softening the surface of skin. When used as a daily cleanser, it helps balance moisture levels and remove impurities, rinsing away to leave a complexion that is smooth, soft and clear as day. For anyone who needs a deeper cleanse, the detox mask effectively penetrates into skin to minimize the size of pores and heal blemishes. All while exfoliating lightly enough to make it suitable for even sensitive skin. It really comes as no surprise that this versatile item has been a huge hit with the Truth In Aging community.

"I love to feel clean and grime-free when I turn in and this gently (very gently) exfoliates as it deep cleans, leaving the skin smooth and glowing."

In this cleanser/mask, it is Aqualumine (a blend of enzymes derived from red caviar) that dissolves dead skin cells without irritation and Olivem 300, an olive oil derivative that helps prevent drying. It’s these two natural ingredients that work together to leave the skin looking younger and smoother.

Well, I can now report after a month of use, day and night, that this does seem to be the case. I love to feel clean and grime-free when I turn in and this gently (very gently) exfoliates as it deep cleans, leaving the skin smooth and glowing. It smells lovely and fresh with just a delicate hint of the sea and it doubles as a mask. I have tried it both ways. For a quick cleanse, you just massage it in and rinse it off with warm water. For a really deep cleanse every now and then, you apply it to the face and neck and leave on for about 3 minutes (I hop in the shower). By the time you are ready to rinse it off, it has dried to a light chalky powder and has tightened the skin. It refines the pores and leaves my 58-year-old sensitive skin feeling squeaky clean and soft, but not in any way stripped or dry.

"In the end, my skin was left feeling soft, smooth and revitalized."

I recently fell in love with LiftLab Purify + Clarify Daily Cleanser, a lightweight, gentle cleanser that exfoliates. LiftLab uses its patented Cell Protection Proteins to “stimulate optimal cell renewal, provide protection against the elements, and intensely moisturize.” The product has a pleasant citrus smell, perfect for waking you up in the morning – it’s not overpowering and does not linger after being washed off. When using this product, you only need a pea-sized amount, as it states on the bottle (use too much, and it foams quite a bit). The cleanser applies evenly and smoothly, and even acts as a makeup remover. When using it as a mask, I found that it was perfect to use in the shower, since you need damp skin to apply it. It doesn’t have to stay on for a very long time, and washes off easily. In the end, my skin was left feeling soft, smooth, and revitalized.

"My pores are tight and I’ve had no breakouts...it proved to not be at all harsh and my skin looks youthful and healthy."

This is a very rich cleanser and one needs only a tiny amount, pea-size or even smaller. It lathers nicely with a mild exfoliation that never scratches or feels harsh. The product rinses clean, not just to the touch but at the pore level. When I wipe a cotton round with Micellar water over my face, it comes back without cleanser or makeup residue. This was a pleasant surprise, since I had to double-cleanse with my previous products.

After four weeks of morning and after-work use, I feel like my skin is well-hydrated and my T-zone a little less oily. My pores are tight and I’ve had no breakouts. I was a little concerned at first by the exfoliating properties of the LiftLab cleanser, but it proved to not be at all harsh and my skin looks youthful and healthy.

"My skin felt fresh and revived with each use, and looked brighter and less dull."

First and foremost, this cleanser is one of the most luxurious I've used to date. It transforms a simple morning routine into a decadent spa-like experience. The smell is fresh and just divine. The directions on the packaging indicate to use a pea-sized amount of the opaque white whipped cleanser — but, of course, I didn't pay attention to this initially and essentially was left with enough cleanser for my entire body and then some. After correctly using the product, I even found that a pea-size amount was a bit too excessive. LiftLab must be aware of this, too, as their website has been updated to "pearl size." It took me a few tries to get the amount required just right, but once I did, I was particularly thrilled as I knew this cleanser would last me AGES! And because of how much you really end up needing, I found this 4 ounce bottle of cleanser to be more cost-effective than others that I've used and loved in the past.

With regular use, my pores were clear of dirt and impurities. My breakouts lessened quite a bit. I did try experimenting by spot-treating breakouts, but didn't find this method to be as effective. Purify + Clarify is also wonderfully hydrating, and I found I needed less moisturizer to get me through the day. My skin felt fresh and revived with each use, and looked brighter and less dull. The LiftLab cleanser uses a patented "Cell Protection Proteins" from the Arctic, which works to protect cells and increase cell turnover, ultimately resulting in smooth and radiant skin. And that is just what I've uncovered with this cleanser, and will continue to do so as I am completely obsessed!
