I am a HUGE fan of CosMedix Purity Clean (read my full review of it HERE and I also featured in my How To Cleanse Your Face video). I love it as a customer and use it personally but also as a therapist and use it in my treatments too.
So imagine how I excited I was to here that CosMedix were releasing two new cleansing products to the Purity range!
Now, let me start by saying that the products haven't reached the UK yet (although will do very soon) so this post is not a review, but rather a pre-release feature.
What struck my attention the most with both products is there similarities between too very well known and very popular products, so with CosMedix's unique spin on things and superior formulations, I just know they have the potential to be a huge hit. Possibly becoming even more popular than Purity Clean!
Purity Solution - Deep Cleansing Oil
Purity Solution is a deep cleansing oil that is designed to dissolve makeup, oil-based sunscreen and excess sebum. It contains a number of different oils including Olive, Moringa Seed, Kukui Seed, Argan, Safflower Seed, Sesame Seed plus Neem Leaf Extract.
Other ingredients include Soybean oil, D-Tocopherol, Amber Powder, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Turmeric and Pearl Powder.
Purity Solution emulsifies upon contact with water and is suitable for all skin types, to be used as the first step in your cleansing. It's nourishing enough for hyper-sensitive skins, but cleansing enough for oily skins. You would then follow up with either Benefit Clean or Purity Clean. So you could therefore say this is designed as a "precleanse".
See the resemblance to Dermalogica Precleanse? I did. The difference between Dermalogica Precleanse and Purity Solution, is as with all CosMedix formulations, it is free-from parabens and PEG's, so it means it's suitable for even the most sensitive / reactive skins and / or those who choose to avoid these ingredients in their skin care.
The CosMedix offering is cheaper too, retailing at £28.36 compared to Dermalogica Precleanse which is £34.
Purity Detox Scrub
Purity Detox Scrub is described as a 'multi-layer' exfoliation system, which combines both mechanical scrub from Poppy Seed, Date Seed, Jojoba Beads and Yellow Corn Kernel Meal plus chemical exfoliation from Salicylic Acid.
The only other ingredients included are Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate & Cocoyl Isethionate, both mild coconut-oil based surfactants.
Purity Detox Scrub is a powder based "micro-exfoliant" that is designed to detox, polish and decongest the skin. It can be mixed with water OR for best results mixed with Purity Solution and used 1-3 times a week, depending on skin type or tolerance.
See the resemblance to Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant? I did. The difference between Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and Purity Detox Scrub, is as above, the CosMedix formulation is free-from parabens. It also doesn't contain any bulking-agents or talc. CosMedix really are living up to their reputation as "Clean-Cosmeceuticals".
The CosMedix Detox Scrub is also cheaper, retailing at £37.81 compared to Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which is £41.30.
Like I mentioned before, the products haven't arrived the UK yet so this is just based on my observations on the function of the product and their ingredients but out of the entire Dermalogica range, Precleanse and Daily Microfoliant are my favourites so it will be great to see how CosMedix compare!
I am definitely looking forward to trying them for myself and will be incorporating them into my facials as soon as they arrive.
Both will be available to buy soon from Medico Beauty.
