Beauty 101: Cleansing Sticks
A clean face is the basis for healthy and glowing skin. Obviously, washing our pores isn’t the most exciting part of our day…until now, that is! We’re introducing you to a new cleansing trend everybody is raving about.
Cleansing sticks are non-liquid face washes with a deodorant-like appearance. Think: face wash meets lip balm. They’re selling out everywhere, and it’s no wonder, because this holy-grail creation from Korean brand SU:M37 is like face wash on-the-go. It’s about to be every jet-setter’s go-to product!
What it is:
The SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick is an advanced cleanser with a lather that takes away daily impurities. It’s infused with rose extract and contains more than 90% natural ingredients, eliminating dryness without leaving any messy residue behind. It’ll leave your skin squeaky clean, without feeling tight.
“One of the biggest benefits of using a cleansing stick as an alternative to traditional facial cleansers is portability. Cleansing sticks are solid rather than liquid, making them convenient for traveling, and the twist-as-you-go method is also great for conserving product.” —Shani Darden, Esthetician; Founder, Resurface Skincare told The Coveteur.
Why all the hype:
Stick cleansers save you from all the frustration that comes with packing bottles of liquid in your travel carry-on. Since it’s solid, there’s no chance of this product leaking in your bag! Its portability also makes it a perfect face refresher for a rushed morning at the gym.
How to use it:
“To use the cleanser, turn the dial at the bottom of the stick to reveal about one centimeter of the product. Use gentle circular motions to massage the stick directly onto a damp face. Rinse off with cool to lukewarm water.” —Charlotte Cho of Soko Glam told The Coveteur.
Bonus tip: It might be in your best interest to use cleansing sticks on special occasions -- like after a long flight! Just like a worn out foundation brush, repeatedly using this on your skin after a while may become unsanitary.
