Spun Gold: Honey Facial Cleanser
Skincare gold - straight from the hive. Our natural facial cleanser pairs a strategic blend of botanical cleansing oils with local honey, lovingly gathered from beekeepers in our small coastal community. With rolling hills of artemisia, ceanothus and vibrant California poppies - these bees eat well!
"This cleanser is also from my coastal hometown of Half Moon Bay, California, which is known for its botanicals (among other things) and smells comfortingly like home. It’s luxurious and delicious.”
- Elizabeth Chambers, via The Cut.
Apply a generous scoop to the face and neck. Using the fingers, gently circulate around the face and neck for one minute. Next, soak a wash cloth with warm/hot water and moderately scrub from the skin for one minute, with care around the eyes and neck. Finally, rinse the cloth clean and soak with cold water, gently buffing the face and neck for one minute.
What To Expect
This cleanser acts as a gentle but determined exfoliant, and effective hydrator. A slightly sticky consistency helps to draw impurities out of the skin layers; cacao will buff and shine; and natural oils and nutrients balance pH. Post-cleansing, skin is left smooth, soft, and exquisitely clean. Skin should be slightly colorful from the circulation and exfoliation - leading to a rejuvenated and youthful looking complexion.
