I didn’t really need a new cleanser, I’d been using this one for the past two months and liked it. But I was at Sephora and saw a travel sized version of this and was pretty enticed to try it out. I had zero expectations.
OMG, this stuff is all over every blog at every interview as everyone’s holy grail cleanser. I’ve been eyeing it for a while. But I wasn’t sure I’d like it, so I didn’t want to shell out money for the small bottle + shipping. Until I stumbled upon it in real life at Shen Beauty a few weeks ago.

My skin has been all over the place this summer, from super dry to really shiny. I switched cleansers, amped up my moisturizing with face oils, but at some point when the temperatures kept reaching 90 degrees I had to go for something lighter and with oil control.
I love ZUM products which are actually from Indio Wild but still, not only are they natural but they smell amazing and the scent really lingers, and for me that’s a good thing.

Its super moisturizing, smells exactly like lemongrass and is the perfect bar of soap for summer.
