What Do You Use to Wash Your Face?
Let’s dive right in. Are you guys not using water? Do you make Alexandra’s DIY honey face wash? Have you also spent a small fortune on your Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser addiction because you keep going places and leaving your bottle in other people’s showers?
About that. I have written many, many times that I adore this cleanser. Maybe it’s the finicky skin I had as a teenager or the promises of beauty companies about the miracles of “pore-cleansing” face wash, but I’ve always been really particular about cleansers. When we were writing the book, I tried many and liked only a few. But when I discovered Tata’s, it was like the clouds parted and God slid down on a rainbow to deliver the most perfect-for-me product imaginable.*
I was hooked. And I still am. But, lo! There’s another contender in town…
When Kahina Giving Beauty mentioned it has reformulated its cleanser—which many of you were talking about in the comments because it’s part of this week’s Friday Deal—I was intrigued. I love her line, and I love argan oil, but when I’d tried the cleanser in the past I found it too harsh for my skin. I know many people who love it, and I was jealous of them. I wanted to love it too, but my skin would get angry at me if I tried.
Then, I left the Tata at my friend’s country house. Then, the Kahina ladies offered to let me try their new cleanser. Then, I fell in love. But since this isn’t boyfriends we’re talking about, I can have two: I adore Tata Harper’s and Kahina’s for different reasons, and my new plan is to alternate between the pair of them.
Now before I turn over the floor to y’all, there’s something else in the mix now, too. Pai has a new product—a kukui and jojoba bead skin brightening exfoliator—and I love that one as a weekly treatment. Stay tuned for more on that though, because it’s part of our Friday Deal on March 9!
K, your turn. What do you use to wash your face? We mean: products, tools, potions, you name it.
