Review

The light whipped gel-like texture makes this rich skin cleanser such a joy to use. It leaves the skin clean, sure – but also with a soothed, radiant quality too! Unique, and with a beautifully subtle scent, this cleanser left a big positive impact on my skin. If you like the idea of balm cleansers but they don’t work for your skin, this clever formula is a great solution!

The made-to-order direct style of manufacture in the interest of minimising waste is a really considered approach to sustainability, particularly considering the industry. Well done for such a thoughtful approach to business!

Review

This product has such a fun texture and I really like the packaging as well. It’s great to see a product with a short list of easy to understand ingredients. I also love that Okana Skincare makes its products in small batches to reduce waste – which can be a big problem in this space!

Review

This balm cleanser was fun, I loved the name “sorbet” cleanser and enjoyed that it has a simple ingredient profile and minimal smell. I quite like how thorough the branding and description is of the product, what’s in it and how it benefits the skin! I am also impressed with the brands focus on less ingredients – 10 or less!
