The Benefits of a Cleansing Stick
Just last year, Korean cleansing sticks took the beauty world by storm. They’ve quickly become the fun, new way to cleanse your face and get glowing skin every day. In fact, we think they’ve totally changed the game.
These daily face cleansers come in swivel tubes (think jumbo glue sticks). In other words, they’re pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face whenever you use them. Just pop off the top, twist up the stick, and introduce your face to a new, invigorating facial cleanser made with 100% natural coconut oil.
More than just a novelty cleanser, cleansing sticks are also super-practical and easy-to-use. Dare we say, you might actually enjoy washing your face? From skin-friendly ingredients to the TSA-friendly (read: totally solid!) format, there are plenty of reasons to switch to stick:
- It’s a cleanser and a makeup remover. Just like oil cleansers, cleansing sticks are made with dermatologist-tested oils that melt away daily grime. The 100% natural coconut oil we use in our cleansing sticks not only gently cleanses skin by dissolving dirt, oil, and makeup, it also nourishes to leave skin softer. Hello, 2-in-1 product!
- They won’t strip skin. Cleansing sticks are oil-based, meaning they nourish as they cleanse. Since like dissolves like, the oils in a cleansing stick only latch onto face oil (a.k.a. sebum), removing it—along with any dirt and makeup attached to it—as it’s rinsed off.
- There’s one for everyone. Different cleansing sticks have different skin benefits! We have three, and each one helps you glow a little differently: Cactus Water & Hibiscus instantly hydrates and softens, Matcha Green Tea & Ginger detoxifies, and Apricot & Manuka Honey refreshes dull skin.
- They’re travel-friendly. Cleansing sticks aren’t a liquid nor a gel—they’re completely solid—so you can toss them into your carry-on with confidence! Live your best pre-flight life without fear of getting side-eye from a TSA agent, or toss one in your gym bag without thinking twice about spills.
When selecting a cleansing stick, you’ll also want to make sure whichever oil your cleansing stick’s formula uses is compatible with your skin. As with other cleansers, some formulations are better for oilier skins (these usually feature clays or activated charcoal), while others are more suitable for drier or more sensitive skins (these will have calming ingredients like green tea or chamomile).
Once you’ve found your perfect cleansing stick, you can save those makeup wipes for moments when restrooms—specifically, sinks—are hard to come by. Healthy skin is clean skin, and you’ll get a much more thorough clean with a cleansing stick since it requires rinsing clean with water.
