Seems like Vitamin C is in everything nowadays! Let’s take a look at this particular Vitamin C Cleanser by Body Merry. As you may remember, I did a review on another Vitamin C Cleanser not too long ago. Similar to that one, this Body Merry version is fragrance free, though it does not say this, and it has that glycerin scent to it. What sets this one apart from the other one is that it contains jojoba beads which adds a gentle exfoliation.
This comes in a 6 fl oz plastic amber bottle with a pump. There is a long list of ingredients, most of which are organic, and on the front of the bottle it lists the main ones: 10% Vitamin C, MSM, Jojoba Beads, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Tea Tree Oil.
I didn’t know what MSM was. Google, being my best bud, helped me out. MSM is methylsulfonylmethane. According to WebMD, it is “a chemical found in plants, animals, and humans. It can also be made in a laboratory.” If we were take the benefits relating to skin only from the information on these two sites here and here, it would break down as follows: helps reduce wrinkles, protection against sun/wind burn, oral hygiene, improves skin health and complexion, accelerates healing, and anti-inflammatory. Ok! Good to know!
Product description per the bottle: “Rejuvenate and polish your skin to reveal a radiant complexion with our Vitamin C activated face wash. By including 10% Vitamin C coupled with the soothing element of Jojoba Beads and plenty of nourishing oils, your skin gets an extra pick-me-up. By washing away excess surface oil, dirt and impurities, this gentle cleanser ensures that you are well on your way to a healthier, younger looking complexion.”
The jojoba beads are teeny tiny, what comes to mind when I look at it is cream of wheat or grits particles floating in a translucent liquid. Though these beads are much tinier than that. It says to keep it away from the eye area, in as such, it would do no good for your eye makeup and you’d have to use something separate for your eye area. The beads are little micro massagers, which feel really nice against the skin, a definite change from more abrasive exfoliating scrubs. There also isn’t a whole lot of foaming, which, again, is nice as you don’t have to fight with suds to clean it off with water and a cloth. After rinsing, all the beads washed off easily, my skin was soft and smooth, and had a healthy glow – even on the next morning after I woke up!
Where I did like that other brand of Vitamin C Cleanser that I reviewed previously, I like this one more because of those jojoba beads and because it left my skin even softer and smoother.
