The importance of facial cleanser

Face washes are often the first step in any skin care routine. And while your face wash is meant to remove makeup and remove impurities, don't you want a facial cleanser to do just a little bit more to garner it 5 stars in reviews?

We're not talking about a facial cleanser with harsh cleansing agents that can strip your face of its excess skin oils while removing makeup. And we're also not talking about too light of a facial cleanser that removes dirt but leaves other impurities on your complexion leftover from makeup you applied months ago.

Instead, we're talking about finding the perfect gentle facial cleanser for you. Because your skin deserves the very best cleanser out there - that 5 stars cleanser.

Unlike other cleansers, Leland Francis' Black Rose Cleansing Gel offers the perfect balance every gentle facial cleanser aims to provide. With an ultra-luxe cleansing formula that's gentle on the skin but strong enough to detox, you won't want to miss out on this gentle facial cleanser that will set up the rest of your skin care routine for success.

A guide to facial cleanser for different skin types

But first, let's take a look at what our Black Rose Cleansing Gel can offer your specific skin type. Because, we promise you, it appeals to everyone - whether they wear makeup or not.

Sensitive skin

Those with sensitive skin should typically steer towards a creamier face wash. Skin sensitivity won't suffer a flare up from a softer texture, especially as makeup gets scrubbed away.

And fragrance free formulas can further guarantee a gentle facial cleanser on sensitive skin, giving it 5 stars all on its own. While our Black Rose Cleansing Gel may dance with the scents of bergamot oil and rose, your skin won't have to pay the price.

Because all Leland Francis formulations are meant to offer a pH balanced base for the rest of your skin care routine. And in the meantime, sensitive skin can feel soothed by the shea and cocoa butter in this unique formula, additionally offering protection from free radical damage.

Oily skin

Those with oily skin will absolutely love what our gentle facial cleanser has in store for them. This gel cleanser is great at not only giving you a good lather, but picking up any excess oil on wet skin, giving you (virtually) oil free skin. (5 stars!)

Well, at least leaving the good oils there. Still, this formula leaves skin feeling clean while ensuring that any makeup you were wearing before is nonexistent after a good wash.

In fact, what makes this gentle facial cleanser stand out is its gentle exfoliating properties. This offers oily users a deep cleanse while still being gentle enough for sensitive skin.

Dry skin

Excessive dryness on the skin can cause a tight feeling or even flaking. And neither of those sound like a 5 stars situation.

But the cocoa butter and shea butter in this gentle cleanser act as moisturizing agents in this face wash. So you don't have to worry about drying your skin out further.

Now, you can rely on a great cleanser that removes dirt and can remove impurities, all while keeping your skin hydrated. So no more flakiness after a good face wash.

Combination skin

If your skin just doesn't know what it's deal is, don't worry. This is what some users are calling the best cleanser for those with combination skin.

As it removes dirt and keeps your skin pH balanced, combination skin types will appreciate the moisturizing yet exfoliating yet deep cleansing effects of this cleanser gel. Mixing between a cream to foam texture, this cleanser really knows how to walk the line.

And all while keeping your skin feeling fresh and dewy. Trust us when we say you'll want to give this cleanser 5 stars when you write a review.

Why choose Black Rose Cleansing Gel?

There are plenty of paraben-free, soap-free, sulfate-free, gluten-free, hyaluronic acid and salicylic acid-filled facial cleansers with 5 stars out there. So what makes our Black Rose Cleansing Gel stand out from the rest?

Beneficial for all skin types

As we mentioned before, this cleanser is suited for all skin types. And it does a heck of a job combating acne, hyperpigmentation, and dull skin. So you can check all those off your list with one cleanser right now.

Standout ingredients

Leland Francis is known for using the finest ingredients out there. So how do each of these ingredients get to work in this gentle cleanser?

Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter

Shea butter and cocoa butter help to moisturize and plump the skin. So even after taking off all your makeup, your skin will still feel silky smooth like that layer of foundation you powdered on.

Not to mention that cacao seed butter makes an appearance in this cleanser formula. And it protects the skin's barrier to hold in even more moisture.

Cacao butter is particularly rich with natural plant compounds known as phytochemicals. And these substances promote improved blood flow to the skin while simultaneously slowing down the skin aging process.

That's a lot packed into one ingredient, wouldn't you? Who needs a fragrance free, sulfate free, sodium chloride filled cleanser now?

Activated charcoal

Activated charcoal had its moment in the sun for quite some time. But this Black Rose Cleansing Gel isn't quite ready to let the limelight fade from this star ingredient.

Because charcoal is particularly good at offering a deep cleanse. And all while gently exfoliating the skin.

Castor Oil, Rose Oil, and Bergamot Oil

Lastly, we have castor oil, rose oil, and bergamot oil all join forces in this formula. And together, they may help to reduce the signs of aging all while hydrating and soothing those with acne prone skin.

These ingredients are also particularly good at correcting sunspots from any UV damage you may have suffered months ago. And we give them 5 stars when it comes to restoring a supple texture to your skin, if we may be so bold.

Unisex and genderless

Okay, this factor may not have to do with the ingredients or the effects of the cleanser itself. But the world has changed.

Heck, it's different than it was even a few months ago. And with that change is the rise of a genderless, or gender-full, world where a soap-free, dermatologist tested, and dermatologist recommended cleanser can be enjoyed by anybody with a body.

While some may say that's not a contributing factor to what makes this cleanser so great, we respectfully disagree. Because where would we be in this world without products that see to a brighter and envision a space for ourselves that we may boldly step forward in?

If that's not enough to persuade you that the Black Rose Cleansing Gel is right for you, consider these other factors as well. It's clean, natural, cruelty-free, vegan, made in small batches, and comes in new glass packaging.

There, are you convinced?
