I was looking at this for ages. Fig & Yarrow was kind enough to extend me a nice discount and I knew that it was time to pick up this bottle that had been starring me down from the pages of Etsy for months.
This little bottle claims to fix all sorts of things my skin is struggling through. This “low-maintenance daily cleanser is beneficial for all skin types, though particularly recommended for congested acne-prone or flaking skin. With a pH in alignment with skin’s natural state, CLEANSING NECTAR encourages balance as it deeply cleanses, exfoliates & nourishes.”
In the morning these days, I either do not wash my face or I use this Cleansing Nectar. This is a very different cleansing ritual. You put it on a cotton pad, swipe your face and then rinse it off. While I have changed a whole host of things in my routine recently. None of them are giving me trouble leading me to believe at least that they are all working together to bring me clearer, more moisturized skin. This is no exception.
While it smells like vinegar. It leaves my face feeling super fresh and amazing. Kind of can’t live without it these days.
This Cleansing Nectar really does it all…

This cleansing nectar is really exceptional, and does something with cleansing my skin that does not leave it stripped but does do a great job of removing traces of gross that accumulate over night. Overall, this is a great product that along with Blissoma Adaptive Energy Tonique has done wonders for my skin, leaving it much clearer and more mosturized.
