My First Time Using OZ Naturals Vitamin C cleanser

Sometimes when you get a good routine going, it's hard to change or try new things. If it ain't broke don't fix it right?! That's how I used to feel about skin care. Many moons ago, I'd have my few products that I would use and I mean ONLY use. These products were harsh and did nothing to help what I really needed with my skin, but I'm happy to finally learn more about what is better for my skin AND our planet. It's no surprise if you've been following my skin care and makeup journey that I've become a bit of a fiend when it comes to trying new products. I love finding new things that work which is why I'm thrilled to share my newest love with you. I got to try the OZ Naturals Vitamin C cleanser from the lovely OZ Naturals team (thanks so so much!) and I must say, I was very surprised with how quickly I saw results with this cleanser. I love! 

I'm always on the hunt for products that brighten and hydrate so anything with vitamin C gets a nod from me. This cleanser promises to deliver a brighter, smoother complexion while leaving the skin deeply clean, radiant and smooth. I used this cleanser for 1 week and every morning for the past week I noticed my skin was visibly smoother and brighter. The gentle formula would be perfect for all skin types and as a potent vitamin C cleanser I was pleased to feel that my face didn't feel stripped or dry after cleansing. 

There are so many skin loving ingredients in this cleanser like 

Hyaluronic Acid- moisturizes and plumps skin
Rose Hips- natural antioxidant that is high in essential fatty acids
Vitamin E- strengthens skin's barrier function and prevents dehydration
and of course Vitamin C- provides protection from free radicals and supports collagen production.



I was surprised to find that there are many other familiar ingredients like kaolin, glycerin,  and aloe leaf extract, as well as some unfamiliar ingredients like montmorillite and illite (non expanding clays), xanthan gum (thickening agent), and P-Anisic acid (natural preservative and antiseptic). I especially love that this product is formulated without parabens, GMO ingredients, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, or phthalates.  

Since this product is gentle enough to be used daily, but potent enough to deliver exactly what's promised, I've added this face wash to my daily routine. Not only does this cleanser do an excellent job of giving my face a much needed deep clean, it's also fantastic at removing all traces of makeup. There are so many Vitamin C products in the OZ Naturals line and if you're looking for an effective face wash then this would be right up your alley! The OZ Natural's website at https://www.oznaturals.com/ has something for everyone and you can even take the skin type test to find your perfect match! 

I love the Vitamin C cleanser and I'm happy to have added some much needed brightening ingredients to my skin care routine. So tell me, what are your fave Vitamin C products? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to hear from you!

  6. I didn't hear about this product before, but it does sound like it has a lot of benefits for your skin. I use a natural cucumber cleanser at the moment, when it finishes I might give this one a go.

  19. I literally had no idea that you could get vitamin C in a cleanser too! That's amazing and I can see how it would be brightening for the skin. I already use a vitamin C serum so I'd love to incorporate a vitamin C cleanser into my routine too.
