Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser: Review

 
 
Beauty Without Cruelty was originally founded in 1963 by the trustees of BWC Charitable Trust, an animal welfare organization, in England. The major founder of the company was Katherine Long; she was dedicated to creating a company which manufactured products that were not tested on animals and did not contain any animal products. Beauty Without Cruelty began with the first line of natural, cruelty-free cosmetics! Katherine passed away in 1969, and the company was taken over by trustee Lady Dowding. In 1978, the torch was passed to Joseph Piccioni, who helped the brand expand into a very successful name in England.

In 1989, Beauty Without Cruelty made its way into the United States. Today, the company not only offers a quality line of cruelty-free cosmetics, but also skin, hair, and body focused products. There is something for every woman and for every need!

Beauty Without Cruelty offers far too many products to list, but I have listed some examples below, for any readers that are curious. Also, I urge you to check out my other review of Beauty Without Cruelty, where I highlight some of their haircare products.

Beauty Without Cruelty products can be purchased at many local, natural food retailers. They can also be found online at the following websites: DrugStore.com, LuckyVitamin.com, Vitasprings.com, Internatural, ByThePlanet.com, or the BWC online store. Their products are very reasonably priced considering the quality of their ingredients. 

For the purpose of this review, I received a travel-sized Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser (2 fl oz.).  This cleanser is part of their Premium Aromatherapy line and is available for purchase for just $2.99. You can purchase the full size Facial Cleanser (8.5 oz) for just $11.95. This Facial Cleanser is great because it works for any type of skin, from normal to oily; it has a 3% AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) complex.

The Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser contains the following ingredients:
 
Botanical infusion of: Lavandula angustifolia (lavender), Calendula officinalis
(calendula), Lonicera fragrantissima (honeysuckle), Anthemis nobilis
(chamomile), Cucumis sativus (cucumber), Aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf
juice*, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium lauryl
glucosides hydroxypropyl sulfonate, Citrus aurantium (sweet orange) oil*,
Cananga odorata (ylang ylang) oil*, Pelargonium roseum (geranium) oil*,
Lavandula hybrida (lavandin) oil*, panthenol, allantoin, magnesium ascorbyl
phosphate, glycerine, tocopherols, glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid,
sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate.  10% Organic Content. *Organic ingredients.
 


 

You can use this Facial Cleanser for the removal of impurities, oil, dirt, or dead skin cells. I found that it also worked well at removing a layer of light makeup left at the end of the day. It is pH balanced, so it cleans your skin deeply without changing the balance -- you don't end up dried out or overly oily. The Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser is soap free, paraben free, and 100% Vegan and Vegetarian. It has a pleasant mixture of essential aromatherapy oils to help cleanse and refresh your skin.

The directions are simple: Rinse your face with warm water, apply the cleanser, gently massage over your face and neck, rinse thoroughly with warm water, and then pat dry with a washcloth.

I chose to review the Facial Cleanser over other products because I feel that the facial cleansers I currently own are very inadequate. I didn't invest a lot of time searching for a good one, or money for that matter. I always feel like my facial cleansers are more geared towards fighting impurities alone, and that, because of that, they leave my face incredibly dried out and irritated. I have extremely sensitive skin, so even some of the lower strength cleansers leave me with red patches and scaly spots. It's hard to find a cleanser that does more than just clear acne -- and it is really hard to find one that can do more than one thing effectively.



I really liked the Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser. I ended up wishing I had a larger size bottle, because I went through the travel size rather quickly! I would definitely only recommend this size for a short vacation. I think that this is the perfect size to bring on a trip, and it probably would go through airport security just fine. This is like the size that you find in your hotel, but the quality is much better. These travel sized Facial Cleansers also make great present toppers for all those women in your life, since Christmas is right around the corner.

It has a very pleasant smell, which is probably from the combination of essential aromatherapy oils. It smells fresh but not overpowering. I love how it foams up very lightly, but has a very soothing texture...nothing gritty or overly soapy. It didn't irritate my skin at all, which is surprisingly -- I guess that's what I get for continuously using products with harsh chemicals. You can really tell the difference when you switch to something that has natural, cruelty-free ingredients. The Beauty Without Cruelty Facial Cleanser successfully removed all makeup and anything else on my face, leaving me feeling refreshed before bed. I feel like it took effect on my (very slight) pimples, without having to go through that dried out, icky feeling. This Facial Cleanser definitely performs more than one function nicely, so I think that it is a great buy for the price. I know you will not be disappointed, especially if you are looking for something vegan/organic.
