Aguacate & Co. Review

The skin is the body’s largest organ so it makes sense that we should take good care of it. I have a bit of an obsession with mine and can’t go to bed unless my face is washed. I can’t go to bed with makeup on my face no matter how tired I am. I will trudge to the bathroom and wash my face and make sure it’s good and clean before my head hits the pillow. My face breaks out so easily that it is a necessity to remove all the dirt and oil from the day. My skin is also sensitive so I need to be careful with what kinds of cleansers I use. If they contain harsh ingredients, I am guaranteed to have a burning, red complexion. Not a pretty sight let me tell you!

Aguacate & Co. sent me a product to try out that seemed like it would be a good fit for my skin. I was pleased to learn that this is a company whose products are made from organic, natural ingredients that are cruelty free and who fully believes in and supports environment. They are a proud member of One Percent for the Planet, a group of eco conscious businesses who give 1% of their sales to support environmental research. Their line of facial care products look great and I was excited to be able to try out the Facial Cleansing Gel and see what it could do for me.

This product is made with wild oats and honey which work to instantly tighten and tone your skin for a more youthful and refreshed appearance. It is meant for oily to normal skin types. My skin is super oily so I knew this was the product I wanted to try the most. I have used facial gels in the past and I prefer them over creams just because they are completely non-greasy. I like that this cleanser was very mild on my skin and didn’t burn or sting. It doesn’t really have a scent and its all natural which my skin seems to like over products with chemical ingredients. It did beautifully on my oily skin and took all that excess off my face for a more clear complexion. It lathers nicely and rinses off completely. With some other products, I am left with a residue on my face, but this one my face felt completely clean. It washes all my makeup off easily and completely. Its a great cleanser and a decent price at $23 for a 100mL bottle. I would be interested in trying out the rest of Aguacate & Co.’s products to complete the set.
