If you’ve been in the market for a new cleanser any time this past year, you’ve probably noticed something called a cleansing stick. One of the most recent Korean beauty trends to hit the skin care products market, cleansing sticks are solid face cleansers that look a bit like oversized lip balm (personally, we like to compare them to jumbo glue sticks).
Facial cleansing sticks are usually made with a combination of natural oils and moisturizers. Like with other skin cleansers, cleansing stick formulas are formulated to achieve different skin benefits. At St. Ives, we formulate our Cleansing Sticks with 100% natural coconut oil, then add some of our favorite ingredients (like cactus water, apricot, honey, and green tea, just to name a few!) to make them totally unique. Here’s how they work:
Did we mention they’re also a ton of fun to use? Check out our cleansing stick how-to page for the particulars, but we love being able to precisely target areas of our face. Plus, the solid stick format means that applying product now doubles as a mini facial massage!
Aside from cleansing sticks’ face-cleansing benefits, they’re also spill-proof and TSA-friendly. Go ahead and toss them into your gym bag or carry-on! Getting a fresh, natural glow has never been this fun! Win-win-win.
